When did freedom of speech become an option? When did freedom itself become something so taboo, it was no longer worth fighting for? Is it because we’ve allowed a politically correct culture to run rampant without question? When did America become the “Land of the Free” – only if we bow to a politically correct ideology?
Our freedom is dwindling before our eyes, yet far too many people are more concerned with the possibility of offending what they consider to be a “protected class” of people. Allow me to enlighten those who believe Muslims to be this fragile, protected class of people, who dare not be offended.
The 14th Amendment of the US Constitution forbids states from denying any person “life, liberty or property, without due process of law” or to “deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.” Equal protection does not protect US citizens or people living in other countries from being offended.
It will probably shock the media and hypersensitive crybabies that our First Amendment trumps hurt feelings. It especially protects incendiary and provocative speech – Oh no! Someone alert the press! If we believed everything the media tried to cram down our throat, we’d be under the impression offensive speech was no longer allowed in America. It’s as if they’ve decided for the American people that it’s better to live in a country where free speech is limited as to not offend a group of people; many of whom hate us anyway.
Let me ask you America, would you rather live in a country where it’s illegal to question your government? Would you be comfortable living in a culture where standing up for your religious beliefs is considered a hate crime? What if all free speech was limited as to not offend a minority of a “religious” people who would like to see you killed on site for said offense? That’s where we’re headed if we don’t start speaking out and speaking loud! We can’t allow our liberty and freedom to be stifled by a small minority or a media kowtowing to a ridiculous ideology.
It’s been open season for attacks against Christians, Jews and non-religious groups alike. If we dare speak out against Muslim atrocities committed in the name of Jihad, we’re labeled Islamophobic, bigots, hate-mongers, etc. Why should we be censored? Has anyone taken a look at what’s going on in the Middle East? It’s not just ISIS killing innocents! Iran is just as barbaric, but they’re under the guise of religious leaders ruling by the hand of Sharia Law. Lest we forget the monstrosity of a nuclear deal currently under negotiation with the P+5 group, essentially legitimizing Iran, a terrorist state, leading them on a direct path to a nuclear weapon.
Even with all of the unspeakable, heart wrenching atrocities committed by Muslim extremists, far too many Americans are near the point of desensitizing themselves. The barbaric acts of these terrorists should be reported on every cable news channel to awaken this sleeping faction of Americans.
Why should we get involved, you ask? Listen to the words of one of America’s greatest leaders; the 40th President of the United States of America, Ronald Reagan. This speech is even more relevant today.
“We Must Fight!”
Now ask yourself: should I speak out against atrocities committed by barbarians who murder, torture and rape women, children and gays? Or should I let them fend for themselves? After all it’s not happening in America. If that’s your thought process, you’re living in a fantasy land. Those barbarians have proven they will in fact attack Americans on US Soil. ISIS is calling for lone wolf attacks; recruiting thousands of Americans as I write this article. Not to mention the fact they’re less than ten miles from our southern border. Iran continuously calls for death to America and even went as far as to say they welcome war with the US. Are you willing to laugh it off as our President does or will you speak out against it?
Now is not the time to remain silent! Who cares what the media or anyone else has to say about provocative speech?! President Reagan was provocative and he sure as hell didn’t sit idly by while America’s sovereignty was threatened! He fought back! He made clear to the Soviet Union and any other nation who threatened us – We were ready and willing to fight for our freedom!
Have we become so complacent over the past forty-years that we’ve forgotten what peace through strength looks like? Diplomacy does NOT consist of appeasing terrorist nations! It’s not making deals with murderous barbarians nor is it ignoring threats made by said terrorists who plan our demise when our back is turned! This isn’t diplomacy or sound foreign policy, it’s appeasement of our enemies!
If speaking the truth about Muslim extremists is considered “hate”? So be it! They can take their little hurt feelings and grab a tissue! If they want to take up arms and plan an even greater attack on America? I say bring it! I will not be scared into silence by a bunch of 14th century COWARDS who kill anyone they consider the infidel. ALL of these extremists can kiss my infidel ___! I fear no one but God almighty. I will NOT be intimidated into silence and I will not be forced to shut up by an elitist media who wants to limit free speech! Stop coddling extremists you blow-hard wind bags! Speak out against the evil cult who wants to kill us, instead of crucifying those of us trying to spread awareness. Enough is enough! If watching hundreds of Christians marched down a beach just before they were brutally slaughtered isn’t enough to tear your heart into a million pieces; I’m left with little hope for humanity.
The loss of freedom of speech isn’t a Democrat or Republican issue. It’s an American issue! We have to unite as one body to fight against the erosion of our rights. Too many men and women have died to preserve our freedom. Did they die in vain? Was it all for nothing? Are we willing to give up our freedom to appease the minority? Are we willing to trade our freedom for a so-called security? I’m not! I love this country and what it stands for! I won’t sit quietly while our freedom is under attack and neither should you. The future of our children is at stake! We must fight back!
I’ll leave you with this:
“You and I are told increasingly we have to choose between a left or right. Well I’d like to suggest there is no such thing as a left or right. There’s only an up or down—[up] man’s old—old-aged dream, the ultimate in individual freedom consistent with law and order, or down to the ant heap of totalitarianism. And regardless of their sincerity, their humanitarian motives, those who would trade our freedom for security have embarked on this downward course.” Ronald Reagan
WAKE UP AMERICA!!!!!
