Freedom - So Long As You Agree With Me

Monday, May 24, 2004
On my way to work today I heard an argument going on about Fahrenheit 9/11 It was on a sports talk radio show and one of the guest labeled Michael Moore "Anti-American".

Is it me or is it anytime someone speaks out agasint something the far right supports they are instantly labeled Anti-American. I couldn't believe my ears as I listened to this guy. I mean what can be more American than speaking your mind and exercising your right to free speach? Its the first friggin amendment for heaven's sake. Could you imagine if in 1776 someone labeled the founding fathers as "Anti-England" After all, they were planning on overthrowing the entire government.

How come to be an American I have to believe that killing people 10,0000 miles away from me that I have never met is a good thing? How come I have to be "anti-troop" if I don't believe in the war? Just because I don't think we should be in the regime-toppling business does not mean I want to see a U.S. soldier shot and killed.

If you don't like it than don't watch it. Simple as that. I don't like listening to politics when I'm trying to listen to sports so guess what, I changed the channel.

Couldn't agree with you more - or moore. I am so tried of people saying that disagreement with the administration or the president is un-american.
