In the United States, we have the privilege of being incredibly safe. There are no routine bombings or insurgents forcing their religious beliefs upon us. However, we do face a very dangerous enemy in America. That enemy is named: Tolerance.
Why do we not profile individuals at the airport? We have established a general profile for likely terrorist, yet we would rather enforce random screenings than profile individuals who would be most likely to conduct a violent act. However, it is not politically correct. So therefore, in order to not hurt anyone’s feelings, we must just say “fuck it” when it comes to our National Security. Then, when something does happen, people point the finger and say “how the hell did that happen?!”.
Why are drone assassinations wrong? If we have the known location of a individual who is an enemy combatant and is guilty of committing acts of violence against the United States, what is wrong with sending a flying robot to blow them into pink mist? Again, America thinks that terrorist deserve due process and that we should send a fighting force on the ground to apprehend them and hold them accountable. Remember, this is the same America that wanted everyone out of Iraq and Afghanistan regardless of the consequences. But, they would readily send our troops into harms way as long as it was “trendy” on social media (Kony, Syria, back to Iraq, etc.). Guess what America, if you want all of our troops home, we are going to use drones to take care of business. You can’t have it both ways!
Why is it okay to protest military funerals? Freedom of speech is one of the greatest freedoms we have, I am utilizing it right now as I type this article (I also fought for it and earned it as a U.S. Marine). However, what gives someone the right to use their freedom to disrupt the freedoms of others? Speech that involves incitement, false statements of fact, obscenity, child pornography, threats, and speech owned by others are all completely exempt from First Amendment protections. INCITEMENT: The action of provoking unlawful behavior or urging someone to behave unlawfully. Yet, we tolerate offensive speech and protest because the general public believes that ALL speech is protected. We allow the minority to dictate what is wrong and right when it comes to the First Amendment. The use of the “N” word is fine if you are black, but it is wrong if you are white. Protesting military funerals is fine, blocking highways because of a thug named Trayvon is fine, gay pride parades completely nude are fine; but God forbid those fucking veterans go to D.C. and ask to be treated fairly!
Lets move onto Ferguson a.k.a. “New Mogadishu”. The incident that occurred has “sparked debate about law enforcement’s relationship with African Americans and police use of force doctrine”. Roger that. The problem is racist white cops and overall racism in America. Am I right? Well, if that is true, how do you explain this: “An analysis of ‘single offender victimization figures’ from the FBI for 2007 finds blacks committed 433,934 crimes against whites, eight times the 55,685 whites committed against blacks.” So where does the racism really reside? Forget that question, where does the problem reside? The problem is not racism, it “is primarily cultural — self-destructive behaviors and attitudes all too common among the black underclass. The problem is black criminal behavior, which is one manifestation of a black pathology that ultimately stems from the breakdown of the black family. Liberals want to talk about what others should do for blacks instead of what blacks should do for themselves. But if we don’t acknowledge the cultural barriers to black progress, how can we address them? How can you even begin to fix something that almost no one wants to talk about honestly?”
The individuals of Ferguson, MO have successfully recreated scenes from “Black Hawk Down”. Not sure if that was their intention, but they sure are lucky no one is calling “Irene”. They are not expressing their freedoms, they are breaking the law. But, we will tolerate it, again and again and again. The truth is, because of our tolerance, all these individuals throughout America, are the greatest threat to our nation. They want to dictate our freedoms, they believe that their freedom is greater than anyone else’s. Well, I fought for my freedom and I definitely earned it. It is time for America to fight against those who we are suppose to “tolerate”.
