I can’t take it any more…
To my friends back home who are promoting the “don’t poke the bear philosophy,” you are instead choosing to give up your freedom of speech. You are choosing fear over freedom. I understand your fear. I have children and grandchildren I love and want to protect, too, but do you want them to live in America where they have the freedom to express their opinions and exercise their religion? Or do you prefer they live in a country where they are told what to believe and what they can say under fear of death?
By cowering to these thugs and terrorists, BECAUSE WE ARE AFRAID OF OFFENDING THEM, we would be handing them our 1st Amendment rights on a silver platter.
I know this has now hit close to home, and that’s why you are so passionately voicing your opposition. When it was Columbine, it was a tragedy, and I’m sure you voiced opinions, but it was removed from you. I lived there, and I kept my kids home on the anniversary of the massacre, due to renewed threats.
And the lunatic who shot up the theater in Aurora? Yeah, my kids frequented that theater, and when I couldn’t make contact the next morning, I was a basket case. So yeah, I get your fear. But if you think lying down and allowing your fear to placate these people will keep them from coming to your neighborhoods, you’re wrong. THEY’RE ALREADY THERE. And they are just biding their time and waiting to take over.
EVERY SINGLE COUNTRY THESE PEOPLE HAVE COME INTO, THEY HAVE FORCEFULLY TAKEN THOSE NATIONS BY FEAR AND THEY’VE DONE IT BY INFILTRATING THEM SLOWLY AND QUIETLY.
They are here, people. They aren’t going away, and if you’re just going to live in fear with blinders on and pretend it’s ok, while they go about their business, you’ll wake up one day and find yourself in a country run by them. Take your fingers out of your ears and stop saying “LALALALALALA.” They WANT you to pretend everything is ok. They WANT you to let them have their events and not have oppositional ones. How do you think they’ll gain control????
Let me get a few things straight here.
America has welcomed this foreign religious group into our country.
In return, they demand we change our laws or they will kill us.
And might I also point out to those who wish to deprive us of our 2nd Amendment rights by disarming law-abiding citizens, that is exactly what the terrorist thugs would love to see. A nation of sheeple, scared shitless, who they can come in and terrorize and take over.
When we start letting our rights be chiseled away, little by little, one by one, no matter who takes them, we lose. It’s just like losing hair – little by little, day by day, it falls out, and you don’t really notice until one day, you look in the mirror and it’s all gone and you wonder where it went. And there’s absolutely nothing you can do about it.
You go ahead and live in fear. I’m not willing to back down and give up my rights as a citizen. I don’t plan to wear a hijab or be oppressed by men or told who I have to worship. America was built by FEARLESS men and women, who believed in the right to worship a God of their choosing, the right to speak their minds without fear of retribution, and the right of free citizens to bear arms.
