Burn A Flag, Save The Constitution


Recently I've been inundated with comments suggesting that I endorse flag burning. The flag is a piece of cloth these days made in China used to represent our country and all it's freedoms which are guaranteed to all under the constitution. Some of those rights is the freedom of expression and the right of freedom of speech. And if you are an inarticulate war protestor whose brain is foggy from too much pot inhalation, perhaps burning a flag is the only way to express your dissatisfaction that is increasingly unresponsive to the demands of it's citizens. If you bought the flag, you should have every right to do with as you wish, as long as you do it on your property.
In the Clinton administration there was much ballyhoo about hate crime legislation following the murder of a gay man by homophobic gomers. Which, as far as I remember, murder is still a crime, how many life sentences can a person serve for the same crime? This led to a number of other acts to be classified as hate crimes, including cross burning. Once again, if a bunch of sheet wearing inbred yahoos want to meet on private property and burn a cross as part of some bizarre racist ritual, that's there right. It's only when you burn a cross on someone else's lawn that it becomes a crime. And, too, if burning a cross is a hate crime, then perhaps burning a flag should be as well.
Recently the Bush released it's "Report on Global Anti-Semitism". It made the recommendation that critism of Israel and it's leaders be a hate crime. Huh? Wha? Let me see, you can criticize France, you can criticize Venezuela, you can even criticize the good old U.S. of A, but criticize Israel? To me, this sets up a dictatorship by proxy where Israel can do as damn well it pleases, even attack the US and the American people can't say a word about it. It will even be a crime to suggest that Israel owns the US Congress!
Another recommendation is that criticism of Zionism also be made a hate crime. I've read lots of people criticize lots of other different religions, from Catholicism to Islam, but only Zionism is protected from criticism under these recommendations. Also, Holocaust denial is a hate crime, but perhaps even loonier are the people who would deny that it took place. Also, Mel Gibson's "The Passion Of The Christ" would become illegal because accusing Jews of being Christ-killers would be deemed a hate crime.All this is sure to pass as AIPAC does in fact own our congress. They have a nifty little scam going where Israel recieves $3 billion in aid annually from the US, then uses it to buy congressmen willing to send more aid, or defeat congressmen critical of Israel. Then, the congress, knowing who their masters are (and it's not the American people, just look at the percentage of people who support the war in Iraq vs. Bush's steadfast refusal that such a colossal blunder was a mistake) vote to send more aid to Israel. At the last AIPAC Congress, US politicians from both parties sucked up to them in order to get support for their next office bid. Bill Clinton even said at one point"I'd die for Israel". This from a guy who declined to serve his country in VietNam.
So my recommendation is you do two things. One: burn a flag, just make sure it's an Israeli flag. Two: do quickly because this is what Israel wants, and like the war in Iraq they desired, they are sure to get their way, after all, they paid a lot of our money to buy our congress.

WHAT HAVE THE JEW'S EVER DONE TO YOU LEW, WHY THE HATE. I READ YOU LINK AND IT WAS A WELL WRITTEN PILE OF CRAP BY AN ANONOMOYS AUTHOR. THESE ARE THE FACTS. YOU HAVE A SERIOUS PROBLEM WITH HATING THE JEWS. THE REASON PEOPLE THINK IT IS WRONG TO HATE THE JEWS IS BECAUSE OF THE HORRORS THEY SUFFERED IN WWII WHEN OVER 9 MILLION INNOCENT JEWS WERE ASLAUGHTERED. OR DID THE HOLOCAUST NOT REALLY HAPPEN THE WAY HISTORY TOLD IT. YOU MY FRIEND ARE A CONSPIRACY NUT. ANYTHING THAT IS TRUE OR REAL YOU MUST QUESTION BECAUSE THERE MUST BE SOME BIG POWERFUL GOVERNMENT WITH SOME KIND OF ALTERIOR MOTIVE. THERE ALL OUT TO GET YOU LEW, ESPECIALLY YOUR NUMBER ONE ENEMY'S THE JEWS.

Where did I ever said I hated the Jews? I merely hate the fact that our government is more responsive to them than they are to the American taxpayer who not only funds our government, but the Israeli government as well. As for an anonymous author, I clicked on yuor name and found a very vulgar surprise.
I'm sure you didn't follow any of the links in the article, they are all legitimate news stories, from the five dancing Israelis to the attempt to blow up the Mexican Senate. As well as the unprovoked attack on a US ship, the Liberty, in 1967, where hundreds of our troops that you claim to support so much were killed.
If you would have read the whole thing, you would have also read the story of former ADL leader Irv Rubin, who was arrested for attempting to blow up a US congressmen's office, which if he was an Arab, would still be in the news today. He also was planning to blow up a house of worship, which is the same kind of persecution that the Jews suffered at the hands of the Nazis.
I am not opposed to Judaism, I am opposed to Zionism, as well are a number of Jews as well. they view Zionism as a corruption of their peaceful religion, much the way that Islamic fundamentalists have corrupted the word of Mohammed.
You sir, are a hypocrite. While you whine about the suffering of the Jewish people under Hitler, you gleefully are willing to commit the same type of genocide against the Islamic people. I never stated that the Holocaust never happened. I'm just sick of the Zionists invoking it everytime they slaughter Palestinians.
And finally, you come across in previous posts as a patriot, but the true definition of a patriot is someone who puts his country first, before all other. Sacrificing our freedom to dissent against a foreign government, or even our own (or did you love Bill Clinton too) is a fundamental right guaranteed by my constitution. It's what our soldiers in all the wars were fighting for, America's freedom and now you have no problem taking them away.
Once again, you have shown to this true American that you are nothing more than a traitor, as exemplified by your name. If Israel is so great, move your wrinkled old ass there and leave America to Americans. America first!

IT IS OK TO HATE ME, BUT NOT OK TO HATE THE JEWS. YOU HIDE WHENEVER I CALL YOU A ANTI-SEMITE, CHARGING ME ON MY CHOOSEN NAME(LAST DOGS NAME)OR MY WEB SITE LINK(FOR THOSE WHO I DISAGREE VHEMENTLY WITH). YOU NEVER ANSWER MY POINTS.
WHY DO YOU HATE THE JEWS SO MUCH. I KNOW WHY BECAUSE I READ THE LINK YOU POSTED TO THE ANTI-JEW WEBSITE WHICH HOSTED THE LIES ABOUT 9/11. SO THERE WERE THREE KNUCKLEHEADS DANCING, DOES THAT CONVICT A NATION...NO. YOU ARE THE WORST KIND OF PERSON. YOU HATING THE JEWS LIKE THIS WOULD BE LIKE ME STARTING A BLOG (WHICH IO DON'T HAVE TIME FOR) AND CALLING ON THE BLACKS BECAUSE MOST PEOPLE IN PRISON ARE BLACK, SO THEY ARE OUT TO GET US. YOU ARE A DISGUSTING RACIST OF THE WORSDT KIND. YOU CAN FIND SITES ON THE INTERNET THAT TELL OF HOW THE HOLOCAUST DIDN'T HAPPEN, AND THEY ARE JUST AS CONVINCING SOUNDING AS YOUR 9/11 LINK. OH, BY THE WAY, WE NEVER LANDED ON THE MOON WITHER. DO YOURSELF AND THIS WORLD A FAVOR AND GET A REAL OPINION.

Once again, I never said I hated the Jewish people, no where I did I ever state that. The web site, once again, dealt with real news stories that never get much attention in the US media because they're too bust running stories about runaway brides and such nonesense. The US Liberty incident is another example of a real news story. In April 1967, the USS Liberty, a radio ship flying the American flag was attacked by Israeli fighter jets. The attempt to blow up the Mexican senate is real as well.
Once again the term "semite" refers to jews and arabs and reading some of your statements regarding arabs makes you an anti-semite as well. Yes, you can find all kinds of wacky conspiracy theories on the internet, from ones blaming everything on the Catholics to blaming everything on the Liberals, even websites devoted to an International Communist Conspiracy. None of them are based on real news strories, they are based on paranoid delusions by people who have been brainwashed by non-factual screeds published by nut jobs with an agenda.
And once again, I point out that since you can not dispute the facts, you have once again reverted to twisted logic and name calling, with just a touch of the obvious racist (you hate the blacks, you hate Arabs, face it, you are a racist)you are.
And once again, I must point out that you who are so willing to gut the constitution, the same Constitution that American soldiers have been fighting and yes sometimes dying to uphold. Because my beliefs are not widely accepted by those who think McDonald's serves good food and American Idol is a good tv show does not negate them, it's just that the truth makes people uncomfortable and is inconvenient (i'LL BET YOU DIDN'T EVEN READ TWO PARAGRAPHS OF THE WEBSITE, NOR CHECK OTU ANY OF THE LINKS. jUST TOO DARN INCONVENIENT)and makes them actually have to think, so they'd much rather give up their freedoms because they're to unintelligent to figure out what they're really losing. Think about that(oh, wait a minute, I forgot, you're brainwashed and unable to think for yourself)

YOU KNOW LEW, THE JEWS YOU HATE SO MUCH FOUGHT IN WWI ON THE GERMAN SIDE, YOU DISCUST ME.

I'm tired of you as well, old man. I'll leave you with the words of a fellow Republican (I am a registered Republican), great staesman, great soldier, and great American, Colin Powell-"It is not anti-semitic to criticize the policies of the state of Israel"
