Americans have received sad news about a young woman who was killed by ISIS after being captured while administering aide overseas. Let’s hope that this is finally the act that gets Obama motivated. Because obviously burning people alive isn’t doing it, nor is chopping off their heads.
This type of terrorism has gone on for way too long. Country singers Larry Gatlin and Billy Dean had it right months ago with their song aimed right at the terrorists. With no apology, they openly sing about the need to rid the planet of these gutless madmen once and for all. I vote that we make “An American With a Remington” the tea party anthem.
When you get angry, you act. And obviously the White House isn’t angry yet. But we are. We are angry that there are individuals in the world who think they can spit on the American dream by instilling fear in our hearts. While that’s not going to happen. They got us once on 9/11 but they won’t get us again, at least not if the tea party has their way.
As a nation we need to band together and force Obama to take action. Take online singing lessons if you must and then stand on the lawn of the White House and sing along Gatlin and Dean. Once you learn how to sing online you can also go ahead and teach his kids the “Star Spangled Banner” because apparently there is no longer any American pride in the first family.
Gatlin admits that the song is directly aimed at the terrorist group and was written out of anger. Anger is a good way to feel about this situation. Anger is an emotion that gets things done. He says he was not looking for a fight, but since it is obvious one is looking for Americans it is time that the truth was revealed. Law makers may not want us to know the truth, but you can’t hide the horror of a body being set ablaze to make a point.
So my proposal is that the political war waging in Washington take a respite for a moment, and intelligent heads start formulating an effective plan of action. NOW. Not tomorrow, and certainly not a few months down the road after more innocent people have lost their lives.
Start a letter writing campaign, inundate with emails. Create posts that raise eyebrows and learn to sing online so that our new anthem is one that makes the terrorists afraid of a little tea.
