A look at current events from the point of a view of a Conservative Evangelical Christian who stands firmly on the Word of God (that's the Bible for those of you at Berkley) and stands behind the Constitution of the United States of America. So grab yourself a big cup of java, kick back in your chair and enjoy another member of the "vast right wing conspiracy" making his voice heard.

Sadly, i must admit, that i hate to even have to mention this taking place, but thanks to our friends at the NEA and the DNC, it has. US Army Pfc Rob Jacobs recently received a packet of letters from a 6th grade class at Brooklyn's Junior High School 51; something that should make any military man or woman serving abroad smile...or at least it should. Rather than get encouraged and uplifted by students back home, instead he was sprayed with the venom that is being forced into the minds of many of our students in the US public school system.
Apparently the students of Alex Kunhardt took his anti-war, blame the US, extremist liberal propaganda to heart and let Pfc Jacobs know how he...i mean "they" felt about the US military action in the Middle East. One muslim student, who gets a double dipping of hate in his local mosque told Pfc Jacobs, "Even thoe [sic] you are risking your life for our country, have you seen how many civilians you or some other soldier killed?" and "I know your [sic] trying to save our country and kill the terrorists but you are also destroying holy places like Mosques", according to The Conservative Voice. Long gone are the days of honoring our troops and celebrating our great country in public schools.
Gary Bauer adds that one student told Pfc Jabobs that he was "being forced to kill innocent people" and then threw more salt on the wound by challenging him to name one Iraqi terrorist because she knew that she couldn't. Another young lady with a mind filled with this mush said, "I strongly feel this war is pointless", which i am sure is the exact same words she heard her instructor say as he gave his opinion on the war on terrorism. But not to be undone, another student told Pfc Jacobs that "only 50 or 100 [soldiers] will survive" due to the re-election of President George W. Bush, i'm just not sure if this was verbatim from what he heard his instructor say or not.
Pfc Jacob's response to this was, "It's hard enough for soldiers to deal with being away from their families, they don't need to be getting letters like this," in a phone interview from his base at Camp Casey with The New York Post. He went on to add, "If they don't have anything nice to say, they might as well not say anything at all." Now it is also important to note that Camp Casey is not even in Iraq, in fact Camp Casey is located in Tongduchon, Korea approximately forty miles North of Seoul. That's right, a US soldier who is stationed in Korea is being accused of killing innocent people in Iraq while he destroys mosques...because of the hatred of one instructor for the US military, our President, and our country.
This sickens me. My heart goes out to Pfc Jacobs as well as the thousands of other brave US military men and women who are putting their lives on the line to not only protect our country...the greatest country on God's green earth, as well as trying to provide democracy to those who have been oppressed for so long. I'm not sure if Pfc Jacobs or any other soldier fighting for the US will ever read this blog or not, but no matter what, i just want to say a very heart felt "Thank You!" to all of you for all that you do. God bless you, your families and the USA.
Sadly, this doesn't end with this single atrocity taking place...should you do a search on an internet search engine, such as Yahoo or Google, to find news on this; very little will be found. The mainstream media would not dare take on a public school official who basically has the same skewed point of view that they have. Needless to say, thank God for Fox News, conservative talk radio and pajama clad bloggers around the world who are willing to fight for truth, justice and the American way!
