You know I don’t really consider my self deeply prejudiced, but some things cause me to wonder. Recently the government released a warning about possible terrorist attacks at malls during the holiday season. Where upon the Los Angeles Police dept announced plans to monitor some of the Muslim Tempels in the area. A huge outcry from the Muslim community caused them to back down.
Add this to the recent immigration marches by illegal immigrants demanding rights they do not have kinda makes me wonder about the future of our country. The values we formed our society upon is under attract from people who came here for the freedom and and quality of life we have because they want to change it to conform to their beliefs. The following is a E-mail I received recently, and sums up my feelings on this issue.
From an email received on 12/2/07 comes this text:
Muslims who want to live under Islamic Sharia law were told on Wednesday to get out of Australia , as the government targeted radicals in a bid to head off potential terror attacks.
Separately, Howard angered some Australian Muslims on Wednesday by saying he supported spy agencies monitoring the nation’s mosques. Quote: ‘IMMIGRANTS, NOT AUSTRALIANS, MUST ADAPT. Take It Or Leave It. I am tired of this nation worrying about whether we are offending some individual or their culture. Since the terrorist attacks on Bali , we have experienced a surge in patriotism by the majority of Australians.’
‘This culture has been developed over two centuries of struggles, trials and victories by millions of men and women who have sought freedom’
‘We speak mainly ENGLISH, not Spanish, Lebanese, Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Russian, or any other language. Therefore, if you wish to become part of our society . Learn the language!’
‘Most Australians believe in God. This is not some Christian, right wing, political push, but a fact, because Christian men and women, on Christian principles, founded this nation, and this is clearly documented. It is certainly appropriate to display it on the walls of our schools. If God offends you, then I suggest you consider another part of the world as your new home, because God is part of our culture.’
‘We will accept your beliefs, and will not question why. All we ask is that you accept ours, and live in harmony and peaceful enjoyment with us.’
‘This is OUR COUNTRY, OUR LAND, and OUR LIFESTYLE, and we will allow you every opportunity to enjoy all this. But once you are done complaining, whining, and griping about Our Flag, Our Pledge, Our Christian beliefs, or Our Way of Life, I highly encourage you take advantage of one other great Australian freedom,
‘THE RIGHT TO LEAVE’.’
[Too bad he can’t run for President here,
oh hell I forgot he is a ainti-gunner,
let him stay where he is!]
‘If you aren’t happy here then LEAVE. We didn’t force you to come here. You asked to be here. So accept the country YOU accepted.’
Maybe if we circulate this amongst ourselves, American citizens will find the backbone to start speaking and voicing the same truths.
As far as I am concerned all the various groups who do not want to live as Americans and accept our way of life can pack their bags and get — and take the ACLU with them. Also the weak-kneed politicians who will not defend our values and laws can join them.
gonna quit before I get in too deep,
but do not apologize for my feelings!
