I don't hate America. In fact, think it's one of the best countries anyone ever stole.

Paul Robeson once said "My father was a slave and my people died to build this country, and I'm going to stay right here and have a part of it, just like you. And no fascist-minded people like you will drive me from it. Is that clear?"

William Blumonce said "I'm committed to fighting U.S. foreign policy, the greatest threat to peace and happiness in the world, and being in the United States I the best place for carrying out the battle. This is the belly of the beast, and I try to be an ulcer inside of it."

It seems what offends flag-wavers most is when someone like me makes use of the freedom they claim to adore. According to their twisted logic, I am ungrateful for my liberty if I have the audacity to exercise it. If I make the choice to not salute the flag at a high school basketball game, somehow I'm not worthy of having the freedom to make the choice to not salute the flag. These so-called patriots not only claim to celebrate freedom while refusing my right to exploit it, they also ignore the social movements that fought for and won such freedoms. They can call us Socailist, whatever. What is happening is we are moving towards ONE WORLD. America, it's not 1950 anymore. Wake the fuck up and smell that shitty coffee you are brewing...
