We Got Your Back Maggie Gyllenhaal

Image Hosted by

So Maggie Gyllenhaal is taking heat for actually being critical of our foreign policy and suggesting we take a look in the mirror and see why we were attacked on 9/11. Maggie has issued an official statement in regards to her comments :

" 9/11 was a terrible tragedy and of course it goes without saying that I grieve along with every American for everyone who suffered and everyone who died in the catastrophe. But for those of us who were spared, it was also an occasion to be brave enough to ask some serious questions about America's role in the world. Because it is always useful, as individuals or nations to ask how we may have knowingly or unknowingly contributed to this conflict. Not to have the courage to ask these questions of ourselves is to betray the victims of 9/11."
So her web site was berated by a swarm of people. This is the kind of posts that ended up on her site:

"I'm one of myriad millions who disagrees with her, Angie. But the only reason I'm
posting here is because the range of my sniper rifle won't reach Hollywood or New York City." - James

So this is the discourse? Say something critical or different...have your life threatened.

So I am sending a simple message to "James" and others like him who post things like this and don't even have the balls to leave their home page or e-mail address on their post:

Dear James,
- Strider

Hope you find your way here 'James' (if that is even your real name) and claim your personalized post.

Now, could you imagine if she were a Dixie Chicks fan as well?!

Hey James, I am with Strider. "Fuck you!"

Sar, she is a Dixie Chicks fan. Why else would she talk such craziness?

Well, damn then I guess it's a good thing she lives in America, "Land of The Free".

Cool, I admire anyone who has the courage to point out that things happen for a reason. It's funny how the right constantly whines that they can't speak freely because of "political correctness", but if one of us tries to say something they don't like, they practically have a seizure.
