Rebuttal to a Hate-letter (entitled: RE: Don’t Buy !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) concerning a Muslim Stamp

Got this chain letter in my Inbox today…. got a bit furious and wrote a couple drafts before I finally hit ‘Reply All’ and sent it back to the People (and then some) who sent it to me.

Part One is the actual mail … Part Two is my Rebuttal.

Thought I would share it with y’all.

New Stamp – the second one!!!

PART ONE

IF I GET ANY MAIL WITH ONE OF THESE STAMPS ON IT I WILL SEND IT BACK WITH A NOTE TO USE PROPER POSTAGE.

Apparently they think that putting hearts and butterflies on the new stamp will  make most people not realize that the rest is Arabic and probably not something we want to support.

USPS New 44-Cent Stamp Celebrates a Muslim holiday.
If there is only ONE thing you forward today… let it be this!
President Obama has directed the United States Postal Service to REMEMBER and HONOR the EID MUSLIM holiday season with a new commemorative 44-Cent First Class Holiday Postage Stamp.

REMEMBER to adamantly & vocally BOYCOTT this stamp, when you are purchasing your stamps at the post office.

All you have to say is “No thank you, I do not want that Muslim Stamp on my letters!

To use this stamp would be a slap in the face to all those AMERICANS who died at the hands of those whom this stamp honors.
REMEMBER the MUSLIM bombing of Pan Am Flight 103!

REMEMBER the MUSLIM bombing of the World Trade Center in 1993!

REMEMBER the MUSLIM bombing of the Marine Barracks in Lebanon !

REMEMBER the MUSLIM bombing of the Military Barracks in Saudi Arabia !

REMEMBER the MUSLIM bombing of the American Embassies in Africa !

REMEMBER the MUSLIM bombing of the USS COLE!

REMEMBER the MUSLIM attack on 9/11/2001 !

REMEMBER all the AMERICAN lives that were lost in those vicious MUSLIM attacks!

Pass this along to every Patriotic American that you know and get the word out!

Honor the United States of America!

PART TWO

MILITANT HIPPI REBUTTAL

Greetings,This is one the most ridiculous f*cking things I’ve seen… and I have seen lots of ridiculousness.

Boycotting a Muslim stamp?

Should I make a list of all the sh*t (you know – raping, pillaging, killing, robbing, plundering, etc.) Christians have done over roughly the last 2000 years?

This chain-mail is a racist, bigoted, ignorant slice of propaganda and I am astounded people I know even consider the ludicrousness in it.

What is this ‘us’ and ‘them’ thing?

We are Earthlings first.

If we changed ‘Muslim’ to ‘Polish’ the Nazis could have written  something very similar to this Racist Chain mail before they invaded Poland in 1939.

After-all, we need to hate a People before we can attack and kill them, eh?

What happened to Freedom of Religion?

Freedom of Speech?

Equality of the Human Species?

Note: Amerika is not a Christian Nation. Let’s not forget this.

Also Note: there is no official language either… that’s right. English is the de-facto language of the good ol’ USA – NOT the official.

Don’t believe me though, I could be as full of sh*t as this chain mail, check it for yourself.

Many of you are Christians.

What happened to ‘love thy neighbor’ and ‘treat others the way you want to be treated?’

Do you only spout that rhetoric in church and with other Christians?

Try living it.

I can see Jesus whipping the crap out of you like he did in the Temple if you showed him this BS.

You’re going against God after all… isn’t God Love?

Perpetuating that hate letter is anything but Love.

Now for those out there that forwarded this… did you check your facts before jumping on the band wagon?

George F#^#%ng Bush issued a ‘Muslim’ stamp  to reach out to the (very large) Muslim Community.

Obama had nothing to do with it.

I took the liberty, and the time out of my busy day, to do a little fact finding for y’all, since it seems no one here cared to.

Here’s a  tidbit for you…

Origins: The stamp exists, although it is not new, it is not a “Christmas stamp,” and it has nothing to do with Barack Obama: The EID stamp is a nine-year-old USPS Holiday Series stamp commemorating two Islamic holidays that have no connection to Christmas.The EID postage stamp was introduced by the United States Postal Service (at the then-current 34-cent rate) as part of its Holiday Celebrations Series on 1 September 2001, just ten days before the September 11 terrorist attacks on New York and Washington. The EID stamp has since been reissued at updated first-class postage rates in 2002, 2006, 2007, 2008, and most recently in September 2009.

(That’s right People –  BUSH was the Big Cheese then – OUCH!)

You fell for a Fake Internet Hoax chain letter! Does anyone feel silly for believing this BULLSHIT, yet?

God I’m glad I don’t have that ‘I’m a schmuck feeling’ like many of you do (or should) have right now.

This chain letter perpetuates hate… we all want a peaceful world, no? Peace doesn’t start with asinine hate letters that do not even have the facts straight and that include the list of Muslim ‘crimes’ (some I can refute as well) at the bottom of E-Diatribe.

You all should be smarter than this… and ashamed of yourselves.

Paul

PS: Scrutinize CNN, FOXnews, Glen Beck and all the other inept bone-heads that perpetuate this Madness.

Knowledge is Power.

PPS

One exclamation point… perhaps two and at the most three (!!!) will suffice…  over 10 should have been an early warning that some knucklehead wrote this right after fantasizing about G. Bush’s picture.

(RE: Don’t Buy !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

Feel free to drop me a line with your rebuttal, sentiment or just to say hello.

Peace and Love
