PHOENIX (CBS5) -
Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio is threatening water and bread for unpatriotic inmates who deface or vandalize the American flag.
“Ten inmates are currently on bread and water for this infraction,” Arpaio said.
Arpaio said he has implemented an American flag campaign in his jails.
Each cell is getting a sticker of an American flag. Any inmate who vandalizes the flag will be punished with the restricted diet.
In keeping with the patriotic theme, Arpaio has ordered that the playing of God Bless America and the National Anthem be done daily in every jail facility over the public address system and for all the inmates, regardless of national origin, to hear and sing-a-long.
And yes. He made good on his threats.
Now, THAT’S a patriot!
(Tip of the hat to the ZIPster)
For at least 20 years there was a debilitating fog of moral relativism in the air, a miasma of guilty self-loathing, to the point when some natives persuaded themselves that although all other cultures were equal, ours alone was less equal than others, or might at least be offensive, and should be suppressed. Even the phrase “host culture” was considered unacceptable…
Fear of giving offence is killing our culture
The Sunday Times reported that some Mus-lim workers ..are refusing to check out purchases of alcohol on the debatable ground that it’s against their religion.
Whenever the sinful stuff is presented by a customer at the till, the Mus-lim expects an infidel colleague to hurry over and sully his or her hands with the transaction instead.
This is preposterous and a depressing sign of the times. But the painful truth is it would be just as preposterous to blame the.. Mus-lims. For years now ethnic minorities have been encouraged to insist on their cultural differences and on their human right to have these differences respected and actively promoted.
It is hardly surprising that they have responded by doing so. It is those who have encouraged them who are to blame.
Think of the headmistress in Yorkshire who removed stories about pigs, including the Three Little Pigs, from her school in case they might offend her tiny Mus–lim pupils.
Think of the councils that have banned Christmas, or hot cross buns, or the council worker who banned a flyer about a Christmas service from a council notice board but held a party to celebrate E-id.
But sometimes it is necessary to risk giving offence, to defend what matters. It may not cause offence; it might even command respect.
Muzlims making demands in their “host countries”: What a display of breath taking arrogance.
Yes. I said “host country.”
Our country fought in countless battles, (including two World Wars) to maintain its identity and freedom. Incalculable numbers made the ultimate sacrifice to protect OUR values, our way of life.
The Barbarians are at the Gate.. and we are told to respect them and call them “guests”….Well………
The free loading guests have officially taken over the hotel my friends.
Not only has it become considered racist, sexist, xenophobic and absurd to suggest that Western culture, particularly such inventions as democracy, human rights, and ahem..”women’s rights” , are superior to other schools of thought, especially institutionalized Izlam….It is downright dangerous.
Azzamatter of fact…….Anyone disagreeing with Muzlim dogma or practice is in fear of their very life. Decapitator anyone?
What does that say about Izlam and its adherents?
We have our kumbaya buddies to thank, the good ole liberal intelligentsia, for forcing any perverted ideology they can get their hands on, onto the rest of the free world.
Look ma..no geni-tals.
They have equated a nation that indulges in medieval and barbaric practices , such as female gen-ital mutilation with civilized democracy.
Need I say more?
In Afghanistan, a Fiancee Aged 3
KABUL, Afghanistan – When asked about her engagement party this summer, little Su-nam glanced blankly at her family, then fiddled with her gold-sequined engagement outfit _ a speechless response not out of shyness, but because she does not yet talk much. Su-nam is 3.
The toddler was engaged to her 7-year-old cousin Nie-em in June, in a match made by their parents.
What is most suicidal is our decadent loss of belief in ourselves and our Culture.
We must tolerate those who don’t tolerate us?..Um…I don’t think so.
Try visiting a Muzlim country..on second thought: Don’t.
You are either not allowed period. (if your’e Jewish or Israeli)
or you will have to surrender your Christian bible at the airport.
When you do visit a muzlim country, you will be
expected..ahem..demanded to respect their culture, dress appropriately, covering your head, arms and legs (if you are a woman) so as not to cause offence.
But when Muzlims come here..the kool aid guzzling Lefties make no demands that they return the
Our Lib politicians are the very first to don all the symbolic clothes, headdresses, paraphernalia, and turn out to the all the different “cultural” parades. They gape and marvel at how “multicultural” and “diverse” we all are and what a paradise we all live in so harmoniously.
Of course they wouldn’t be caught dead in a Santa Claus outfit at a school play nor would they wish ‘Merry Christmas” to anyone, just in case they might be..ahem..”offended”.
The harsh truth is that a nation is based upon a common culture and language. The whole notion of a multicultural nation, wherein each “culture” demands to be front and center, is a contradiction in terms and doomed to failure.
NOT ALL CULTURES ARE EQUAL.
Not all “beliefs” are respectable.
Lighting up the Empire State Building in Ham-ASS green?
Our government has already thrown us off the cliff and then demand that we tell them how much we enjoy “the view.”
Perhaps it’s time to stop worryin bout bein “politically correct” and being more “patriotically correct.”
The good ole multiculturalist Emperor has no clothes…we all know this.
But hey, nudity never did “offend” Lefties, did it?
Good on you County Sheriff Joe Arpaio: Punishing prisoners who deface our precious flag.
