From the offices of Concerned Veterans For America:
In honor of Wednesday’s July 4th holiday marking the anniversary of our nation’s independence, Concerned Veterans for America has prepared the following web video that celebrates freedom and asks the question what does freedom mean to you?
This video should be reminder to all of us that Independence Day is much more than fireworks, cookouts and a day off from work. It’s a commemoration of the things that make our nation great, and the values we hold in common.
The video below, courtesy of United West, is stunning…
It appears as though a group of Christians staged a protest outside the 2012 Dearborn Arab Festival, and that protest turned ugly. Those holding signs are seen being physically assaulted with bottles, eggs, stones, crates and several other objects. The police, rather than diffusing the situation, turned the other way as things escalated.
The video is over 22 minutes long, and a majority of the swearing and violence seems to come from younger American Muslims. While the video is shorter, the editors claim the assault took roughly 30 minutes before the police stepped in – to exchange words with the Christian group. After the exchange, the hostile group continued their assault.
After the second barrage, the police instruct the Christian group to leave despite their assertion that they have a right to be there.
First Amendment anyone? What is the police and media reaction if this were a group of Occupiers being assaulted?
If this extremely disturbing video does not result in a Federal investigation into the human rights violations of those Christians physically attacked at the 2012 Dearborn Arab Festival then we are watching the beginning of a new America, a MUSLIM AMERICA.
In this new America, a MUSLIM AMERICA, shariah-compliant Muslims have succeeded in striking fear into the hearts of the infidels. In the case of the Dearborn Arab Festival, you will see that the infidels are NOT the few, brave Christians who withstood the physical attacks by the blood-thirsty Muslims, but the fearful are those who have taken an oath to protect Americans. The fearful, are the Dearborn Sheriff and Police. Sadly, you will see the Police fearful of confronting the criminals and enforcing the law as they stand by watching “Muslims Gone Wild,” attack the helpless Christians.
The United West predicts that success of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt combined with the mounting fury of the “Arab Spring,” coupled with the support of President Obama will result in an expansive, “strong-horse” onslaught of Muslim physical aggression, similar to this Dearborn disaster, all across the new, MUSLIM AMERICA.
We’ve come a long way since last month’s poll in which Mental Recession readers felt the economy would be in better hands if it were run by circus monkeys. Of course, we had to eliminate that option from this most recent poll, or the monkeys likely would have won again.
We asked – Which candidate is better equipped to handle the U.S. economy?
You said –
Barack Obama – 11%
Mitt Romney – 88%
New question – Who the hell are the 11%, and what alcoholic beverage are you overly consuming?
What does that immigration reform entail?
Building a fence on the border? No.
Enforcing proper identification to weed out those who have entered the country illegally? No.
Allowing states to enact laws which reinforce already existing federal immigration laws? Hell no.
Making the U.S. economy so crappy that more people want to leave the country than enter it?
We have a winner…
Via the Washington Post:
A four-decade tidal wave of Mexican immigration to the United States has receded, causing a historic shift in migration patterns as more Mexicans now leave the United States for Mexico than the other way around, according to a report from the Pew Hispanic Center.It is the first reversal in the trend since the Depression, and experts say that a declining Mexican birthrate and other factors may make it permanent.…Nearly 1.4 million Mexicans moved from the United States to Mexico between 2005 and 2010, double the number who came a decade earlier. The number of Mexicans who moved to the United States during that period fell to less than half of the 3 million who came between 1995 and 2000.…The reversal appears to be a result of tightened border controls, a weak U.S. job and housing construction market, a rise in deportations and a decline in Mexican birthrates, said the study…The drop comes at a time when overall immigration to the United States continues to grow, and reflects several factors specific to Mexico, including a relatively strong economy and a sharply diminished birthrate.…Gustavo Velasquez, 38, who came from Oaxaca, Mexico, 12 years ago and serves as the director of the D.C. Office on Human Rights, said that the scarcity of U.S. jobs is causing more Mexicans to think twice about moving.
Only Obamanomics would make the Mexican economy seem more enticing than the U.S. economy…
A flag flying outside Democrat headquarters in Lake County, Florida, featured something amiss. There seemed to be a subtle change that was difficult to spot at first glance. Wait, there it is!
There, in the place where we’re used to seeing a blue field adorned with 50 stars that represent the 50 states in the United States of America, was a lone star. A rock star. A Democrat rock star.
50 stars had been replaced with President Obama’s face:
A group of Veterans in Lake County, Florida have shown their disgust for the county Democrats who have desecrated the American flag by putting up a mock flag that has President Obama’s face where the 50 stars belong…
In a story from WFTV.com, the veterans went to the offices and demanded the flag be taken down. At first, Lake County Democrat Party Chairwoman Nancy Hulbert declined to take it down, letting the veterans know that if they touch the flag she’ll call the police. 10 minutes later, she came out with a pair of scissors, and took the flag down, noting that she had looked online to figure out if the flag was against the US Flag Code:
Just went online. Just went online and looked up the flag code. There is no higher-up in Lake County. I’m responsible. I take responsibility.
Warner Todd Huston at Right Pundits adds:
The Party hack at the office fought against the veteran that went to demand they take down the altered U.S. flag (because it violates the flag code, he said) saying it was private property and she could do whatever she wanted.
NOW Democrats are worried about private property?
Anyway, the fact that these Democrat hacks didn’t understand immediately that putting Obama’s face on a U.S. flag was not only a violation of the flag codes (an honor system rule, not a law) but was actually offensive to most people, well it’s telling, indeed.
While it is upsetting to veterans for obvious reasons, this is nothing new for Obama fans.
Inside Charm City reported on another example in 2009, citing a photograph that appeared in the Baltimore Sun.
…a ticket design for the Democratic National Convention has been accompanied by a bit of controversy.
The credential appears to show an upside-down American flag on both sides. What’s worse, the front makes it appear as if Obama is cloaked in the flag, as the stars are almost visually equivalent to his shirt. In fact, Matt Chandler speaking on behalf of the Obama campaign states:
“…it is a stylized flag designed to blend the stars on Senator Obama’s shirt with the flag blowing in the wind.”
The first question that arises is why would a man who once refused to wear the American flag on his lapel, be interested in sporting a patriotic shirt, overflowing with stars?
Second question, despite the following denial from the Democratic National Convention Committee…
“The DNCC community credentials incorporate patriotic design elements. They do not depict an actual American flag.”
… How did the designer of the credentials not realize that perception might lead people to believe this is indeed a representation of an upside-down flag?
USNews reports a new Harvard study confirms Republicans are more patriotic than Democrats.
A new Harvard University study finds that July 4th parades energize only Republicans, turn kids into Republicans, and help to boost the GOP turnout of adults on Election Day.
“Fourth of July celebrations in the United States shape the nation’s political landscape by forming beliefs and increasing participation, primarily in favor of the Republican Party,” said the report from Harvard.
“The political right has been more successful in appropriating American patriotism and its symbols during the 20th century. Survey evidence also confirms that Republicans consider themselves more patriotic than Democrats. According to this interpretation, there is a political congruence between the patriotism promoted on Fourth of July and the values associated with the Republican party. Fourth of July celebrations in Republican dominated counties may thus be more politically biased events that socialize children into Republicans,” write Harvard Kennedy School Assistant Professor David Yanagizawa-Drott and Bocconi University Assistant Professor Andreas Madestam.
Perhaps if liberals spent less time burning the flag, and more time learning about it’s history and symbolism, these mistakes would be less frequent.
Hey, when people say that President Obama doesn’t act presidential, it’s not because of the color of his skin. It’s because he does not act with the same sense of respect towards others as is worthy of the highest office in the United States.
Watch the video below from Granny Jan Jihad Kitty…
Gateway Pundit adds another instance of rude behavior – when the Dalai Llama was escorted out the White House back door amidst the trash:
And now, President Obama’s other rudest moments…
Don’t worry, he’s not illegal in his own mind. He’s simply undocumented.
Okay, when the question you dread most is ‘hey, why are you currently breaking the law?’ then you shouldn’t be running for anything. Ever.
Actually, it’s not like that at all. And there’s one simple reason for that. Being gay or being an atheist is not illegal.
What does it take to be seen as a regular Aggie? How about becoming a legal Aggie?
