Recently, a protest was held in the Punjab province of Pakistan where among chants of “Death to America,” and whatever else they like to whine about, American flags were set ablaze to protest the overdubbed low budget movie nobody ever saw outside of Youtube that painted the so-called prophet Mohammed in a negative light. Okay, I get it, you don’t like someone on the far side of the planet talking bad about your religion. But somehow, I get the feeling there is more to this. But it just seems to me that there is so much more going on in my daily life to worry about what someone thousands of miles away thinks about my religious beliefs.
You see, it is about much more than just offending someone’s beliefs. This is about a deep set hatred these folks have for us because of their jealousy of our civilization that we have worked so hard to build notwithstanding how much they enjoy the technological advances and economic prosperity form the West that they have benefited form so much.
Nothing better symbolizes Western Civilization to these folks than the Stars and Stripes so they buy themselves a handful of Chinese made poisonous American flags (tongue-in-cheek), set them on fire, inhale the noxious fumes, and bam! — one protester identified as Abdullah Ismail kicks the bucket.
What do I say to all the Abdullahs out there? “Have another!”
