Love This Comeback !!!!!

One of my sons serves
in the military. He is still stateside, here in California .. He called me yesterday to let me know how warm and welcoming people were to him and his troops everywhere he goes, telling me how people shake their hands and thank them for being willing to serve and fight for not only our own freedoms, but so that others may have them also.
But he also told me about an incident in the grocery store he stopped at yesterday on his way home from the base. He said that ahead of several people in front of him stood a woman dressed in a burkha.

He said when she got to the cashier she loudly remarked about the
U.S. flag lapel pin the cashier wore on her smock. The cashier reached up and touched the pin, and said proudly, 'Yes, I always wear it and probably always will..'

The woman in the burkha then asked the cashier when she was going to stop bombing her countrymen, explaining that she was Iraqi.

A gentleman standing behind my son stepped
forward. Putting his arm around my son's shoulders and nodding towards my son, he said in a calm and gentle voice to the Iraqi woman: 'Lady, hundreds of thousands of men and women like this young man have fought and died so that YOU could stand here, in MY country and accuse a check-out cashier of bombing YOUR countrymen. It is my belief that had you been this outspoken in YOUR own country, we wouldn't need to be there today. But, hey, if you have now learned how to speak out so loudly and clearly, I'll gladly buy you a ticket and pay your way back to Iraq so you can straighten out the mess in YOUR country that you are obviously here in MY country to avoid. Everyone within hearing distance cheered!

IF YOU AGREE____ Pass this on to all your proud American friends.

I just did.......HELL YEAH

Comic Sans! Colors! Old, stupid anecdotes! Berating a woman for having the gall to be upset that Americans have killed thousands of innocents in her nation! Huzzah!

First of all: I'm sure this is made up, but let's pick on all women who dress in burkhas just because they are an easily identifiable target.

Second of all: W/Cheney/Rumsfeld et al launched an unprovoked attack on Eye-Rack with the sole intention of stealing their oil, plus making megabucks for themselves (via sole source contracts with Halliburton, etc). They sold this criminal action to gullible sheep in the USA by LYING to us and saying: a) Saddam Houssein had weapons of mass destruction, which he NEVER DID, and b) by saying that Saddam funded al Quaeda, etc, which he NEVER DID (in fact, Saddam was very much against al Quaeda and kept them out of Iraq. It's our "friends," the wealthy Saudis, who fund & protect al Quaeda).

So, in this purely made up fantasy story, the lady actually had every right to complain about her nation being unfairly attacked for no reason other than uberrich Americans could make quick bucks off of their suffering. I don't blame this fictional lady one bit!

That said: kudos to those serving in the armed forces and for having the guts and courage to put their lives on the line. Too bad they are doing so only so that W & Cheney can rich; that part is disgusting.

My usual rant: brought to you by rightwing thinktanks in order to rile up the gullible masses into hating on Muslims for no real reason.

Iraqi women don't wear burkas; Afghan women wear burkas. Iraqi women might wear abayas, but they're more likely to wear blue jeans.

Written by someone in a cubicle at the Heritage Foundation after lunch, a little drowsy, recycled outrage toward easy targets, bingo. Job done, time to listen to Rush again.

Also, Iraqis have rose up against Saddam Hussein after the first Gulf War. They were killed. The US did nothing to stop it, and allowed Iraqi attack helicopters to violate the no-fly zone even though GHWB had publicly encouraged the rebellion.

In other words, blaming ordinary Iraqis for their country's problems is the move of an utter, utter ignorant slimeball.

How dare the Iraqi people allow us to invade their country! Now look what they've done!

The way that was written, his
voice didn't sound calm and
gentle at all.

But these are reactionaries,
by golly; and there is nothing
calm and gentle about them...as
they prove to the rest of the
world on a daily basis.

I guess Rwingers just WISH someone would come up to them and harrass them for wearing a flag pin. But of course, no one ever does because that would be silly. So they have to make up this "incident in a grocery store" with clearly defined enemies and heroes. Maybe Hollywood should go back to making good old fashioned westerns so these people can stop inventing their own (stoopid) stories of good and evil. PATHETIC!

None of the friends I have from the Middle East would act out like this in an unprovoked fashion simply because a clerk was wearing a flag pin. Most Middle Eastern folks in this country are grateful to be here, but also realize that the rightwing is targeting them in ways like this.

Junk like this is sent out to make rightwingers angry at and have hatred for Muslims. For shame!

Yes, because the Stalinist regime under Hussien encouraged women to wear burkas. Right.

Oh, of course they did. I dare say they carried him out on their shoulders and made him their king too.

Also, the odds are that the writer of this drivel cannot tell the difference between a burqa and the more common (in Western countries, anyway) headscarf that doesn't cover the face (Wiki says that is called either a khimar or shaylah). One must always remember to do one's research before telling stupid lies.
