In the face of the horrific, brutal murder of Nick Berg, I am here to say, Ive had enough! I will no longer let my somnambulant friends and acquaintances get away with their disregard and lack of concern for the war against radical Islam. I will no longer allow them to dismiss the lies, the mischaracterizations, the half-truths and the politically motivated distortions perpetrated daily by the left-leaning media and the Democratic Party. I will no longer sit by and be frustrated by the shrill, hollow shout-downs of those who would never be willing to stand for anything (unless, of course, it is to oppose core, traditional American values and beliefs). I will no longer let these things pass. From now on, every correspondence I send, every conversation I conclude, every checkout person I encounter, every waiter I tip, every friend I meet, in short, every human contact I have will conclude with a cry, with a prayer, with a unifying reminder of what our collective lives must be united against, what our actions and words must strive to live up to, what we must all always bear in mind as we work and play and live and love and laugh and cry. We must always:
Remember Nick Berg!
As in wars past, Americans came together under the rallying cries of Remember the Alamo! and Remember the Maine!, today you and I must, we must keep in mind the great threat that would seek to wrest from all of us our God-given rights of freedom and liberty. We are involved in a great conflict which many have refused to acknowledge, and which many Americans have forgotten. Think of how quickly the pictures of the attack on 9/11 disappeared from our public view. Think of how muffled the truth about our war has become (it is not a war on terror, but a war on radical Islamsee Andrew McCarthys piece at Nationalreviewonline.com). Well, we can no longer allow Americans the luxury of forgetfulness (or semi-consciousness). We can no longer allow the anti-American bias that permeates so many of our institutions (and, indeed, all of the information-generating, public opinion-shaping, education-offering mechanisms in our country) to saturate the American psyche with the self-loathing guilt without voicing with equal regularity a ready response. Not when innocent civilians such as Nick Berg are being sacrificed to the false god of radical Islam. People must not be allowed to get away with complacency any longer. The Left must not be allowed to get away with its hatred of America any longer. Stagnation today, could well mean Americas surrender tomorrow. America must be awakened, reminded that she is under attack. She must be reminded that the enemy is vile, inhumane, savage, hate-filled. America must be reminded that she is not the aggressor here; she is not filled with evil and corruption. She is not what is wrong with this world. And the phrase:
Remember Nick Berg!
Will serve to do just that. So, I encourage you to join me in reminding Americans everywhere at every moment throughout the day to Remember Nick Berg. Think how it could be if every day Americans everywhere heard or saw the phrase, Remember Nick Berg! dozens of times throughout the day. Maybe, just maybe, it would change the hearts and minds of a few (or a few thousand) to stir to wakefulness their slumbering patriotism. Maybe it would remind someone not to take Americas benefits for granted. Maybe it would dull in the mind of someone the impact of the incessant droning of the anti-American Left. Maybe it would be a reminder just to yourself about who and what your are, what you stand for, what you believe in, what America is all about.
Remember Nick Berg!
If I thought you were intelligent I'd reply to your comments. But instead I'm just going to laugh at you.
His tern paper has been restored, in all its majesty ;)
Skullfullamushius Idiota variety.
Of course, it may just be a run of the mill DUhma$$ium Trollia varmint in camoflage.
Why didn't the soldier that held the man on a leash nude not be punished?
Why didn't she not be punished? Why did she be punished? WTF?
The sad part is, I see the papers my wife brings home, and this is actually pretty typical of mainstream high school students these days.
Although there is more than meets the eye about Nick Berg and what he was doing in Iraq, we still cannot condone or forget what happened to him at the hands of this evil personified! Nothing and no one deserves this! There aren't even words to describe the type of thing that could do what they did to him.
I stand by what I said. If you don't like it, put a sock in it. Most "sane" people who have lost a loved one put the blame on the killers themselves.
No, I have a better opinion because I can use the shift key, spell "sentence", and know that questions end with a single question mark.
the "sad part" is this kid that worked up the guts to put his opinion on this demented website is being picked apart by you people.
If you can't stand the heat, etc. Either he's an adult who should be mentally and emotionally prepared for any criticism that comes his way, or he's a child - in which case, he should shut up and sit back down in front of the Playstation when his betters are speaking.
i am happy that someone that age is thinking
I see no evidence of thought in that post at all. I see unformed and half-formed pablum, regurgitated in a rather illiterate and pedestrian manner. I have some passing familiarity with the public schools, so I've little doubt that during his school career, such bowel movements are generally rewarded by happy smiles and gold stars from his teachers. But this is not Vero Beach High School - I am not one of his idiot teachers, nor am I his mother. If the little troll needs his ego stroked every time he publicly dribbles urine down the front of his pants, neither of you are going to be happy here.
You da man.
Pain is a harsh teacher, but there's no teacher quite so effective ;)
My this thread has taken an ugly "tern".
PS: Wasn't bubbles Michael Jackson's chimp? Thatwould explain a lot.
