    This lady says it well. Out of respect for the masses who have died that we may enjoy our freedoms, be silent if you haven't the courage to defend them.

    Stand Up for America Rally Speech

    By: Beth Chapman


    I'm here tonight because men and women of the United States military have given their lives for my freedom. I am not here tonight because Sheryl Crowe, Rosie O'Donnell, Martin Sheen, George Clooney, Jane Fonda or Phil Donahue, sacrificed their lives for me. If my memory serves me correctly, it was not movie stars or musicians, but the United States Military who fought on the shores of Iwo Jima, the jungles of Vietnam, and the beaches of Normandy. Tonight, I say we should support the President of the United States and the U.S. Military and tell the liberal, tree-hugging, Birkenstock-wearing, hippy, tie-dyed liberals to go make their movies and music and whine somewhere else. After all, if they lived in Iraq, they wouldn't be allowed the freedom of speech they're being given here today. Ironically, they would be put to death at the hands of Sadam Husssein or Osama Bin Laden. I want to know how the very people who are against war because of the loss of life, can possibly be the same people who are for abortion? They are the same people who are for animal rights but against the rights of the unborn. The movie stars say they want to go to Iraq and serve as "human shields" for the Iraqis. I say let them buy a one-way ticket and go. No one likes war. I hate war! But the one thing I hate more is the fact that this country has been forced into war-innocent people have lost their lives - - and there but for the grace of God, it could have been my brother, my husband, or even worse my own son.
    On December 7, 1941, there are no records of movie stars treading the blazing waters of Pearl Harbor. On September 11, 2001; there are no photos of movie stars standing as "human
    shields" against the debris and falling bodies ascending from the World Trade Center. There were only policemen and firemen - -underpaid civil servants who gave their all with nothing expected in return. When the USS Cole was bombed, there were no movie stars guarding the ship - - where were the human shields then?
    If America's movie stars want to be human shields, let them shield the gang-ridden streets of Los Angeles, or New York City, let them shield the lives of the children of North Birmingham whose mothers lay them down to sleep on the floor each night to shelter them from stray bullets. If they want to be human shields, I say let them shield the men and women of honesty and integrity who epitomize courage and embody the spirit of freedom by wearing the proud uniforms of the United States Military. Those are the people who have earned and deserve shielding! Throughout the course of history, this country has remained free, not because of movie stars and liberal activists, but because of brave men and women who hated war too. However, they lay down their lives so that we all may live in freedom. After all - "What greater love hath no man, that he
    lay down his life for his friend," or in this case a country. We should give our military honor and acknowledgement and not let their lives be in vain. If you want to see true human shields, walk through Arlington Cemetery. There lie human shields, heroes, and the BRAVE Americans who didn't get on television and talk about being a human shield - they were human shields. I thank God tonight for freedom - - those who bought and paid for it with
    their lives in the past - - those who will protect it in the present and defend it in the future. America has remained silent too long! God-fearing people have remained silent too long! We must lift our voices united in a humble prayer to God for guidance and
    the strength and courage to sustain us throughout whatever the future may hold. After the tragic events of Sept. 11th, my then eleven -year-old son said terrorism is a war against us and them and if you're not one of us, then you're one of them. So in closing tonight, let us be of one accord, let us stand proud, and let
    us be the human shields of prayer, encouragement and support for the President, our troops and their families and our country.
    May God bless America, the land of the free, the home of the brave and the greatest country on the face of this earth!




    I (jon) have something to say about the protesters as well.... instead of protesting against something that they ARENT going to change. why dont they do something contructive? like support the troops. they dont have to agree with the war, but damn, there are Americans and peoples loved ones over there fighting.. whether they agree with the cause or not.. they are still over there risking thier lives to get rid of an apparent American and World threat. I saw on the news of Americans burning American flags in protest to the war.. sounds to me that they just gave up thier right to be American and need to be dropped off in a not so nice foriegn country and let them open thier mouths then..


    GOD BLESS AMERICA...... MAY THE LORD KEEP OUR TROOPS SAFE AND BRING THEM HOME SAFELY.

    First let me say thank you for posting this. It's nice to hear a voice with a brain behind it. /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif Second, I think it would be great if we could get Bush to take just a little money from the defense budget to accomadate these clowns. I mean hey, if we just sent the 10,000 or so morons from San Francisco alone, booked them flights on United Air lines, and dropped them in Iraq to be human shields, we could do more for the local economy than Bushes tax cuts! /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif Think about it, we would bring lots of busines to the air lines , reduce the number of people on unemployment/welfare /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif, and help or fellow Americans exercise their freedoms. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif And let's not forget to invite the Dixie Twits for extra media appeal! /forums/images/graemlins/pimp1.gif And when it comes to burning the American flag, just dowse it in gas and there will be an F117 stealth along in a few minutes with a 2000 lb Bic to light their fire /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/usaflag.gif
