Persons Of Interest, a documentary

Jesus’ General is a must read today! He talks about some of those in the documentary, “Persons of Interest” who, because they were Middle Eastern and/or Muslim, were arrested, detained, disappeared, deported, etc. shortly after 9/11. It’s especially saddening and infuriating when read in context with the lyrics of Lee Greenwood’s song “God Bless the USA”.

“If tomorrow all the things were gone I’d worked for all my life,
And I had to start again with just my children and my wife,
I’d thank my lucky stars to be living here today,
‘Cause the flag still stands for freedom and they can’t take that away. ”

Now, tell me again….it’s the terrorists who want to take away our freedoms, who want to destroy the things that “make America great”?!

These days, I guess the flag only stands for freedom if you’re white, Christian, and Republican.
