I know many of the people who went to the Chick-Fil-A Appreciation Day/Kiss-In were not filled with hate or anger, but there were a great many who were. That display of hate and the Hate-Murders/Domestic Terror Act at the Sikh Gurdwara really bums me out. I read the article titled “Today, We Are All American Sikhs” on CNN. I agree with the sentiment. I have read about the many the hate crimes commited against the Sikhs since 911 where the shooter thinks he is targeting Muslims. This pisses me off, too. I am dismayed by the conservative claims that the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan are religious wars between Islam and Christianity. Their arguments are weak and based on ignorance and hate.
As a veteran of the US Army, I apologize to anyone who thinks they need it, though it is not my role to do so. The US Army does not teach hate, nor does it tolerate hate once it is uncovered. While I was stationed at Cp. Humphreys South Korea, a soldier in my company and a couple others on post were dishonorably discharged for membership in the KKK and for making racist statements to fellow soldiers.
