Are People Who Attack American
Written by JB Williams
In a word, yes! Living in
(legally or illegally) does not make one an American. Accepting, adopting,
understanding, believing in, living, promoting and defending real American
foundational principles, (the American dream), makes one an American. Nothing
less will do…
One who works to stop
others from smoking can’t be called anything short of anti-smoking. One
who works to stop others from owning guns would certainly and appropriately be
deemed anti-gun rights, or anti- 2nd Amendment. If you work to stop
abortions, you are certainly anti-abortion and if you work to undermine fundamental
American principles, you are obviously anti-American.
Does this mean that one
must believe in and support all administrations and their agendas or policies?
No! Does this mean that one can not openly dissent from federal policies? Hell No!
Does this mean that people can’t speak out against the things they do not
support? Of course not… Dissenting and speaking out is a very American tradition - as long as that dissent is consistent
with foundational American principles and values. But if that dissent is in
opposition to American principles or interests however, it is by its nature, anti-American.
Those who do it are therefore un-American.
Too often today, people
get so caught up in politically motivated rhetoric that they miss the real
message hidden beneath that rhetoric. They find themselves arguing over the two
sides of the same coin. They find themselves supporting power-hungry political
parties instead of principled political leaders on individual merits. They also
find themselves placing partisan bickering ahead of the nation’s best
interests. Then they wonder why their system of self-governance is failing
Our system of
self-governance only works as well as the people work it. If the people work
the system poorly, the system will fail them. The system was designed to never
fail the people. However, the potential for the people to fail that system is
very real and we seem to be reaching our potential in this regard today.
For starters, one can not
hate all foundational American principles and still be a useful American. You
can live in America,
but that alone won’t make you an American. Just as many American
expatriates live abroad today, still believing in and defending the American
principles of their roots, expatriates from abroad live in America
too, and many foreign visitors still believe in and support the anti-American
principles of their homeland. They are
not Americans. They are visitors. Unwelcome visitors in many cases.
Just being born in America
does not make one an American either. Many born in America
have fallen to international and homegrown anti-American rhetoric, themselves
believing in and pursuing un-American agendas today. No matter ones birth
place, those who hate American principles and support anti-American agendas are
in a word, un-American.
was founded on a very short list of broadly stated yet pretty specific
fundamental principles hard to misinterpret, though not so hard to undermine
via intentional misrepresentations. All of these principles combine to make up
the American way of life, in essence, what it means to be American.
the official American economic principle. It is also the polar opposite of Communism, between which lies Socialism.
Capitalism has other names, free enterprise, individual economic freedom, a
free market, economic self-determination, financial liberty, the right to
determine ones own station and destiny. People who oppose capitalism oppose a
fundamental American principle and promote un-American economic principles by
default. It is just that simple…
family unit is an official fundamental social value essential in America.
It is a foundational principle; the ideal standard intended to promote a
healthy society. This is not to say that anything less is unacceptable, only
that anything less is less than ideal and therefore, not promoted as something
equal. To attack the traditional family unit is to attack a foundational
Freedom of religion
and open religious expression is a foundational American principle. There is
and can be no official federal religion. All
peaceful religions are welcome and given equal free
status in America.
All are free to practice and express their individual beliefs with impunity in America,
including those who believe in nothing at all. People who work to silence
religious expression or denigrate religious beliefs in America
are working to undermine a fundamental American principle. No getting around
of Independence is our nation’s founding document, not the US
Constitution. It is the Declaration that established America as a free
sovereign nation of self-governed people, recognizing certain (almost
limitless) unalienable God given individual
rights, beginning with Life itself, personal Liberty and the right to define
and pursue ones own personal Happiness and economic condition.
Constitution was the (foundational) organizational
document that established the means and methods by which a free sovereign
people would govern themselves. It was not written to enumerate the many
individual rights of a free people. It was written to limit the duties and
rights of a federal government that would always pose the greatest threat to
The First Ten Amendments,
referred to today as our Bill of Rights,
was a poor attempt to limit government even further by enumerating several
specific individual unalienable rights. Too many misrepresent these and all
other Amendments as the complete list of individual right’s today, the
exact opposite of their well documented intent.
To use intentional misinterpretations
of the Constitution to undermine the broad freedoms established under the
Declaration of Independence, is to attack foundational American principles and
it is entirely un-American, especially when the judicial branch charged with
defending those written principles is the attacker.
is a foundational principle established in the Declaration of Independence. Those
who wish to relinquish our national sovereignty in exchange for some UN governed
EU sanctioned and monitored greater global good, are operating against America
and every thing our founders established. This too is an un-American endeavor.
is the primary purpose and function of the federal government. Diverting
precious resources to promote Socialism
through an endless stream of social services that erode personal freedom and
bankrupt our nation, is what our federal government was supposed to defend its
not a problem in the most diverse nation on earth. The idea that any nation can
about diversity is just plain nutty. What nation on earth is more diverse than America,
from any angle, religion, race, color or nationality perspective? The answer is
But today, we are being
sold divisive anti-American hogwash under the inappropriate guise of diversity.
That’s because if we call it what it really is, class warfare driven by
Marxist principles, most Americans wouldn’t buy into it.
The point is, while many
Americans burn the flag, march the streets, demonstrate in front of buildings
and file financially motivated protest law suits under the heading of
“honest patriotic dissent” – most of them are doing so at
odds with these and other fundamental American principles, and there is nothing
American or patriotic about it!
If you are against
capitalism, traditional family values, freedom of religious expression, life
– liberty and the pursuit of individual happiness through personal effort,
the Constitution as it is written, national sovereignty or security, then you
are in fact against every thing America
is, ever was, and was ever intended to be. And that my friends, is
If you walk into a voting
booth and cast a vote for any candidate who is against any or all of these
things, then you are casting a vote against America
and that too is an un-American act.
Now…You people who
have a long history of working against these and other American principles will
not be pleased to hear that this alone by definition, makes you un-American. I
can’t help that. It’s not my rules, not my personal opinion, just
the way it is. I didn’t write our nation’s principles; I just fight
to uphold them, as should you. If you don’t and the shoe fits –
kick yourself with it!
The rest of us who love,
support, defend and promote all true American ideals, must stop apologizing for
has enemies, both here and abroad, both outside aggressors and those from
within our own ranks. We are as obligated to defend this nation against the
enemy within as we are all foreign aggressors. Fortunately, we can usually do
that peacefully in the voting booth.
But if we don’t do
it there, we will one day fight the enemy within with the same tools of war
used to fight our enemies abroad today.
Our founders gave us the
tools to peacefully defeat America’s
internal aggressors at the voting booth. Un-American is as un-American does.
They can call it whatever they want and they will. But the rest of us must know
them by their real name on the basis of their anti-American actions.
Keep them at bay at election
time or face them on your doorstep one day. Much of Europe is learning this
lesson the hard way as we speak. Americans are supposed to know better!
The reason modern
Democrats keep losing elections is their entire party plank is built upon
anti-American principles and rhetoric. No matter what disguise or politically
correct (marketable) term they use to promote their so-called
“progressive” agenda, people who know and love real American
principles and values are not fooled.
However, according to today’s
Democrats, those who can not be fooled by anti-American socialist drivel are
greedy fascists, right-wing capitalist pigs conspiring to ruin America
by keeping it as free as possible.
Sticks and stones…
Call me what you want! Pro-America is all I am…
