What It MEANS To Be An American

Many blowhards attack those who criticize powerful people in America.

They treat any questioning of “authority” as being “anti-American” or “anti-government”.

Indeed, according to Department of Defense training manuals, protest is “low-level terrorism”. And see this, this and this.  Similarly, an FBI memo labels peace protesters as “terrorists”.

But – as shown by the following quotes – those are anti-American thoughts.

Indeed, as Americans, we are very pro-America.

But we’re anti-CORRUPTION, anti-FASCISM and anti-PILLAGING AND PLUNDERING.  If that makes us controversial, so be it … we’re in very good company:

Veteran Wraps Baby in American Flag, Photo Sparks Controversy

Free Republic

A photographer and Navy veteran is fighting back after a photo she posted to Facebook started an online backlash.

Vanessa Hicks said she had no idea her photo would be considered controversial. The photo, from a military family’s newborn photo shoot, showed a newborn infant wrapped in an American flag held by his father, who was in his military uniform.

Hicks, a Navy veteran herself and the wife of an active-duty Navy member, said her intention was to honor the flag as well as her clients, who wanted to incorporate their military service in the photo shoot.

Side Note:

So, a baby in an American Flag is considered controversial, offensive. Why? What I find offensive is this the following.   1 Dragon

Via Lancaster Online:

Conoy Township has a message for criminals who might be thinking about preying on its residents: This is not a gun-free zone.

And that’s exactly what visitors will see once all the signs are securely in place along every road leading into the township. …

Stephen Mohr, a Conoy Township supervisor and lifetime member of the National Rifle Association, said the signs cost about $500 for all 16.

Mohr said the feedback so far has been positive.

“You have to realize that to most people in this township God, guns, family and friends are the four most important things,” he said.

For their own safety, Pennsylvania criminals are encouraged to remain in the Democrat zones of Philadelphia and Pittsburgh.

Mississippi Legislation Declares All Federal Gun Control Unconstitutional

Tenth Amendment Center

Two bills filed in the Mississippi House and Senate would make it an express duty of the state government to protect the gun rights of Mississippians against federal gun control measures.

House Bill 1297 (HB1297) was filed by Rep. Staples last week. It declares “All federal acts, laws, orders, rules or regulations regarding firearms are a violation of the Second Amendment.”

In other words, as the Founders understood, the federal government has no authority over firearms, period.

The bill goes on to declare that all such federal acts are “invalid in this state, shall not be recognized by this state, are specifically rejected by this state, and shall be considered null and void and of no effect in this state.”

It continues with a requirement to stop federal gun control in the state:

NUMBER ONE WITH A BULLET

 

The USA has, by far, the highest per capita gun ownership in the world. Progressives will tell you that this is what makes America the Murder Capitol of Planet Earth. But we’re not, and in this devastatingly effective Firewall, Bill Whittle shows why the center of Gun Nut Nation is in fact one of the safest places in the world.

Islamists Encounter Resistance at Texas Convention

You can’t blame Muslims for thinking America is ripe for conquest, when you consider what we have in the White House. But Obama won’t be around forever. Despite moonbattery having reached epidemic proportions, American endures. When Muslims staged a “Stand With the Prophet” event in Garland, Texas over the weekend, they discovered that not all of us are Charlie Hebdo; some of us are ready to shoot back.

The event featured Imam Siraj Wahhaj, an unindicted co-conspirator in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing and no doubt a likely candidate for Obama’s next Director of Homeland Security. The purpose of the conference was to use political correctness to bludgeon the resistance to the spreading cancer of Islam. But the 2,000 or more anti-jihad protesters who turned up didn’t seem all that worried about being denounced as “Islamophobes.”

Enraged that the conference was essentially hosted by the Garland Independent School District, patriots converged from throughout the region in an encouraging show of resistance. Many arrived on two wheels, called to action by 2 Million Bikers to DC.

Compliments of Bunker, here’s what the jihad is up against when it ventures outside of friendly territory like NYC and Washington and into the Heartland:

Some advice for expansionist Muslims: when in Texas, remember the Alamo.

Update:

Islamists might also want to tread lightly in Louisiana, which sent a contingent to Garland:

How do you say ‘Second Amendment’ in French?

American Thinker

Paris and another mass murder in a gun-free zone.  Another incident where well-armed criminals shot at people who could only scream and watch their colleagues gunned down without mercy.

love-my-guns

Wonder if anyone in that Paris building wished he or she had a gun to shoot back.  I’m not saying that a couple of concealed weapons would have stopped well-armed terrorists, but it could have bought a little time before the police got there.

I know that many Europeans call this “a cowboy crossfire.”  Tell that to the families of the dead – all dead because guys with guns shot innocent unarmed people working in their office.

Like other countries, France has very restrictive gun laws, as David Crodea reported:
