GOE sent out an email headed just as the title of this post.

May 15th, 2007 at 4:53 pm I was in the Black Bloc, and I have to say that your GOE showing was not impressive at all, in fact it hardened the resolve of the leftists to end this war and all of you with it. All you succeeded in doing was making us feel bad for you. But that won’t stop us or our mission. When we got back from the rally, we had a good laugh about the whole thing and which one of you was the most ridiculous. I’d also like to thank all of you for the wonderful pictures you took of us, though it’s a shame you didn’t post any of our little flag display. That really pissed you off, didn’t it? We could see it in your eyes how much that burned. And you know what we did? We laughed. We laughed because we know all your rage against us won’t ever stop the flames from engulfing flag after flag, and we know that it won’t stop our ultimate victory either. So congratulate yourselves now, but when you can’t avoid it anymore, the flames will still be there. Then all that will be left is the pitiful, dead ashes of the flag and this sick system, and a new one will rise. We are in your city, your suburbs, we may even be right next door. We have time, yet we waste none. Today it might be a brick through a recruitment station window, but there is so much more ahead. We are growing, training, and learning. You are simply getting old. Your time is limited, ours is just beginning. So keep your red white and blue flying high, because soon the Red and Black banners will be at your doorstep. What will you do then?
Now, I ain’t the brightest bulb on the tree, but I’m pretty sure threatening to terminate veterans and vandalize buildings are quite against the law. But before any of us jump to conclusions, I invite concerned citizens to contact our friend directly at email@example.com.
The implied threat here is unmistakable and the writer, a disgusting piece of crap, but remember folks, this IS your far left anti-American mindset that is alive in this country.
Then we get to the burning of the flag issue, don't feed me any crap about "constitutional rights" to burn our nations flag, it shouldn't even be an issue of whether people have that right or not, it falls under the Right or Wrong category.
What kind of worthless piece of garbage thinks that burning the symbol of our great country makes any other statement than to tell those watching what an anti-American peice of shit the burner is?
Anyone remember this picture?
Raising the Flag on Iwo Jima is a historic photograph taken on February 23, 1945, by Joe Rosenthal. It depicts five United States Marines and a U.S. Navy corpsman raising the flag of the United States atop Mount Suribachi during the Battle of Iwo Jima in World War II.
The photograph was extremely popular, being reprinted in thousands of publications. Later, it became the only photograph to win the Pulitzer Prize for Photography in the same year as its publication, and ultimately came to be regarded as one of the most significant and recognizable images of the war, and possibly the most reproduced photograph of all time.
Of the six men depicted in the picture, three (Franklin Sousley, Harlon Block, and Michael Strank) did not survive the battle; the three survivors (John Bradley, Rene Gagnon, and Ira Hayes) became celebrities upon the publication of the photo. The picture was later used by Felix de Weldon to sculpt the USMC War Memorial, located adjacent to Arlington National Cemetery just outside Washington, D.C.
Anyone remember our star spangled banner?
Oh, say, can you see, by the dawn's early light,
What so proudly we hail'd at the twilight's last gleaming?
Whose broad stripes and bright stars, thro' the perilous fight,
O'er the ramparts we watch'd, were so gallantly streaming?
And the rockets' red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof thro' the night that our flag was still there.
O say, does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?
On the shore dimly seen thro' the mists of the deep,
Where the foe's haughty host in dread silence reposes,
What is that which the breeze, o'er the towering steep,
As it fitfully blows, half conceals, half discloses?
Now it catches the gleam of the morning's first beam,
In full glory reflected, now shines on the stream:
'Tis the star-spangled banner: O, long may it wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!
And where is that band who so vauntingly swore
That the havoc of war and the battle's confusion
A home and a country should leave us no more?
Their blood has wash'd out their foul footsteps' pollution.
No refuge could save the hireling and slave
From the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave:
And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave.
O, thus be it ever when freemen shall stand,
Between their lov'd homes and the war's desolation;
Blest with vict'ry and peace, may the heav'n-rescued land
Praise the Pow'r that hath made and preserv'd us as a nation!
Then conquer we must, when our cause is just,
And this be our motto: "In God is our trust"
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!
On Sept. 13, 1814, Francis Scott Key visited the British fleet in Chesapeake Bay to secure the release of Dr. William Beanes, who had been captured after the burning of Washington, DC. The release was secured, but Key was detained on ship overnight during the shelling of Fort McHenry, one of the forts defending Baltimore. In the morning, he was so delighted to see the American flag still flying over the fort that he began a poem to commemorate the occasion. First published under the title “Defense of Fort M'Henry,” the poem soon attained wide popularity as sung to the tune “To Anacreon in Heaven.” The origin of this tune is obscure, but it may have been written by John Stafford Smith, a British composer born in 1750. “The Star-Spangled Banner” was officially made the national anthem by Congress in 1931, although it already had been adopted as such by the army and the navy.
Our flag is our symbol, it is our pride, songs, pictures and memorials are set up with the America Flag and you are damn straight I will call anyone that chooses to burn our flag, unpatriotic and un-American.
If you do not love our country, why are you still here?
Get the fuck out and don't let the door hit you on the ass on your way out.
