They say its some terrorist,

A Rab, in
It wasn't our American terrorists
It wasn't the Klan or the Skin heads
Or the them that blows up nigger
Churches, or reincarnates us on Death Row
It wasn't Trent Lott

Terrorized reason and sanity

Who set the Reichstag Fire

Who knew the World Trade Center was gonna get bombed
Who told 4000 Israeli workers at the Twin Towers
To stay home that day
Why did Sharon stay away?

 Who? Who? Who?

Explosion of Owl the newspaper say
The devil face cd be seen

Who make money from war
Who make dough from fear and lies
Who want the world like it is
Who want the world to be ruled by imperialism and national
 oppression and terror violence, and hunger and poverty.

Who is the ruler of Hell?
Who is the most powerful

Who you know ever
Seen God?

But everybody seen
The Devil

Like an Owl exploding
In your life in your brain in your self
Like an Owl who know the devil
All night, all day if you listen, Like an Owl
Exploding in fire. We hear the questions rise
In terrible flame like the whistle of a crazy dog

Like the acid vomit of the fire of Hell
Who and Who and WHO who who
Whoooo and Whoooooo! ooooooooooooooo!

Subject: Barry is upset...
  Date:   Fri, 19 Oct 2001 14:17:09 EDT From:    To:
  I will be taking another break from my email soon, we
seem to be going around and around and coming back
 to the same place.  It's is getting back to the point where
 there is no gray area, "he who is not with me is against me."   

Subj:  Patriotic  
Date:  10/19/2001 7:52:00 AM Pacific Daylight Time From:  ATEETONE
To:  CC: There is some truth here.Makes you wonder doesn't it !!

Broken Arrow, Oklahoma School officials remove "God   Bless America"
signs from schools in fear that someone   might be offended.

Channel 12 News in Long Island, New York, orders flags removed from the newsroom and red, white, and blue ribbons
removed from the lapels of reporters. Why? Management did not want to appear biased and felt that our nations flag might
 give the appearance that "they lean one way or another". Berkeley, California bans U.S. Flags from being displayed on city fire
trucks because they didn't want to offend  anyone in the community.
In an "act of tolerance" the head of the public library at Florida Gulf Coast University ordered all "Proud to be an American"
signs removed so as to not offend international students.

I, for one, am quite disturbed by these actions of so-called American citizens; and I am tired of this nation worrying about
 whether or not we are offending some individual or   their culture. Since the terrorist attacks on September 11, we have
experienced a surge in patriotism by the majority of   Americans. However, the dust from the attacks had barely  settled in
 New York and Washington D.C. when the "politically   correct" crowd began complaining about the possibility
that our patriotism was offending others.

I am not against immigration, nor do I hold a grudge against anyone who is seeking a better life by coming to America.  
In fact, our country's population is almost entirely comprised of   descendants of immigrants; however, there are a few
 things that  those who have recently come to our country, and apparently some native Americans, need to understand.

First of all, it is not our responsibility to continually try not to offend you in any way. This idea of America being a  multi-
cultural community has served only to dilute our sovereignty and our national identity. As Americans, we have  our own
culture, our own society, our own language, and our own lifestyle. This culture, called the "American Way" has been
developed over centuries of struggles, trials, and victories by millions of men and women who have sought freedom.
Our forefathers fought, bled, and died at places such as Bunker Hill, Antietam, San Juan, Iwo Jima, Normandy, Korea,
Vietnam, We speak English, not Spanish, Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Russian, or any other language. Therefore,
if you wish to become part of our society - learn our language!  "In God We Trust" is our national motto.  This is not
some off-the-wall, Christian, Right Wing, political slogan it is our national motto. It is engraved in stone in the House
 of Representatives in our Capitol and it is printed on our   currency. We adopted this motto because Christian men and
 women, on Christian principles, founded this nation; and  this is clearly documented throughout our history.  If it is
 appropriate for our motto to be inscribed in the halls of our highest level of Government, then it is certainly appropriate
  to display it on the walls of our schools.

God is in our pledge, our National Anthem, nearly every patriotic song, and in our founding documents. We honor His
birth, death, and resurrection as holidays, and we turn to  Him in prayer  in times of crisis. 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 and we are
proud to have Him.

We are proud of our heritage and those who have so honorably defended our freedoms. We celebrate Independence
 Day, Memorial Day, Veterans Day, and Flag Day. We have parades, picnics, and barbecues where we proudly wave
our flag. As  an American, I have the right to wave my flag, sing my national anthem, quote my national motto, and
cite my pledge whenever and wherever I choose. If the Stars and Stripes offend you, or you don't like Uncle Sam,
 then you should seriously consider a move to another part of this planet.

The American culture is our way of life, our heritage, and we are proud of it. We are happy with our culture and have
 no desire to change, and we really don't care how you did things where you came from. We are Americans, like it
or not, this  is our country, our land, and our lifestyle.

Our First Amendment gives every citizen the right to express his opinion about our government, culture, or society,
and we will allow you every opportunity to do so. But once you are   done complaining, whining, and griping about
our flag, our  pledge, our national motto, or our way of life, I highly encourage you take advantage of one other great
 American  freedom, the right to leave.

Barry Loudermilk
If you agree, pass this onto other Americans!  It is time to take a stand!

Even if you disagree share this  myopic xenophobia it's heart felt and arrogant and ignorant classic
 whining pseudo patriot sentamental arme chair knee jeyky fuzzy American an easy sell to the
memebers of the population that know only that they were borne, so that's all they need to know .

Kind of reminds me of the Irish Italian Greek KKK meeting that wanted to ban there Japanese
sponcer even if he was bringing the beer and sushi .
