When I did my baconalicious koran burning five years ago, in an interview a few days afterward I was asked the following question:
IOTW – In your video you pretty much dare Muslims to come and get you. Are you being a martyr, or do you pretty much have confidence that you can handle yourself?
Ann – Were the guys who volunteered to fight in all previous wars “martyrs”? Did the boys who enlisted in ’41 have a death wish? No. There just comes a point where any person of integrity knows that they have to fight. I love G.K. Chesterton’s quote, “A true soldier fights not because he hates what is in front of him, but because he loves what is behind him.” I love my country and my fellow man enough to be willing to lay down my life to defend them against evil. And, yeah. I can damn sure handle not only myself, but also an assault rifle, a big ass tactical shotgun, a sniper rifle, and a nine for those “intimate” encounters.
I no longer love what is behind me.
The third “nudge” in two days that any allegiance to the United States’ federal government is aiding and abetting evil.
