Sorry if I offended anybody by spelling qua ran wrong. My spelling is bad so excused the typos. Also, did not see a topic on this, searched, found nothing and started a new topic.
So, this topic is about national burn the qua ran day, and the whole redneck agenda against mu slims.
This is fucked up. I am a proud member of the military, and I joined not just to get a career field and education, I joined to protect our constitution, which says, FREEDOM OF RELIGION.
I was in boot camp with many Muslims who would have fought side by side me, and many did. I was fortunate to be in the navy during Iraqi freedom/Enduring Freedom. Protest it if you want, but I served, side by side, with Muslims.
I joined to protect and guarantee our constitution. While it may have its faults, as does our country, after living in many countries, trust me, theres no place better. We are privileged, yet we don't understand it.
Burn the Quran day is a racist move. All the mosque site burnings, racist moves. There is no such thing as an African American, Asian American, Mexican American, WE ARE ALL AMERICANS. And these protests/acts of violence are hate crimes. Nothing more. It may be insensitive to build a mosque near ground zero, but god dammit, I joined to protect their rights.
Islam is not our problem. The problem is the extremists. Guest what, ever religion has them. The crusades anybody?
All national burn the qua ran day does is endanger our troops. Whether you agree or protest the war, you must support the troops. They took a job to defend you whenever japan invades during WW2. the point is, they joined for an education, benefits, support the constitution, and guess what, if shit hits the fan, their asses are protecting you. Many of them do not believe what they are fighting for. But they do it. And if shit hit the fan and WW3 started, they'd be the ones protection your asses. Are you a christian/catholic/Jehovah's witness? They allow you to practice that religion.
So whats wrong with Muslims? A few bad apples seriously makes them all bad? This shit makes me sick, and sad to be an american who served in the armed forces to protect their rights as AMERICANS! There is only American, African American is an outdated term IMO, just like anybody else who isn't white. There are people of all colors out there supporting you're right to be free.
And a few ignorant fucks want to go and ruin it for the rest of us. Just like the reason I was scared for obama to be in office, I figured one red neck fuck ( I'm white, and white trash as can be) would assassinate him because he was black and set our country back 60 years.
Isn't that what we're doing with our hate towards Muslims? I'm all for tea parties and what have you, but the worse of the worse is what the rest of the world sees.
And national burn a Quran day makes us look bad. And who will pay? Our troops.
