As a soldier stood in line at a California grocery store, a Muslim woman wearing a burka confronted the store’s cashier about their American flag lapel pin, and everyone in the store heard it. But a man standing behind the soldier wasn’t having any of it, and by the time he finished, the entire store was cheering.
A man named Hunter Green recounted the outstanding story on his Facebook wall, telling about how his son had gone to California and encountered many different people, most of whom thanked him for his service and fighting to protect not only our freedoms, but the freedom of others as well. But one incident at a grocery store, as he headed back to base, stuck in his mind. That’s when a Muslim woman dressed in a burka had some not nice things to say about our country and the flag that represents it. (H/T Sean Brown at Mad World News)
One of my sons serves in the military. He is still
stateside, here in California. He called me yesterday to let me know how
warm and welcoming people were to him and his troops everywhere he goes,
telling me how people
shake their hands and thank them for being willing to
serve and fight for not only our own freedoms, but so that others may
have them also.
But he also told me about an incident in the grocery store
he stopped at yesterday on his way home from the base. He said that ahead
of several people in front of him stood a woman dressed in a burkha.
He said when she got to the cashier she loudly remarked
about the U.S. flag lapel pin the cashier wore on her smock. The
cashier reached up and touched the pin, and said proudly, “Yes, I always
wear it and probably always will.”
A gentleman standing behind my son stepped forward.
Putting his arm around my son’s shoulders and nodding
towards my son, he said in a calm and gentle voice to the Iraqi woman:
“Lady, hundreds of thousands of men and women like this young man have
fought and died so that YOU could stand here, in MY country and accuse a
check-out cashier of bombing YOUR countrymen. It is my belief that had you
been this outspoken in YOUR own country, we wouldn’t need to be there today.
But, hey, if you have now learned how to speak out so loudly and clearly,
I’ll gladly buy you a ticket and pay your way back to Iraq so you can
straighten out the mess in YOUR country that you are obviously here in MY
country to avoid.”
Now that was awesome! Unfortunately, these people come to our country and they don’t even like it here. They want to change our country into the hellhole they came here from. It makes no sense.
