Have You Forgotten?

This song came out in January of 2003.

In December 2002, Darryl played for the troops in Afghanistan and Kuwait. When he came home in the last week of December, he and Wynn Varble wrote the song. Darryl debuted Have You Forgotten at the Grand Ole Opry on January 10, 2003. Source

It is amazing how quickly attitudes can change. We went from a nation at odds over a close election to a nation united after the attacks on 9-11-01.

After the initial unity we were once again a nation divided as politicians revised history to oppose actions they overwhelmingly and willingly voted for. We became a nation divided over protracted wars. We became a nation divided.

And so we are nine years after the most horrific attacks on our soil, divided.

That we would even allow discussion about the erection of a mosque anywhere near the site where the attacks occurred shows how we are marching further toward dhimmitude.

Have you forgotten?

Let us take time today to remember those innocent people who were murdered in an act of war nine years ago today. Please keep the memories of those in the buildings, those who went to rescue them and those who forced a plane into the ground alive in your hearts and minds.

Let us at least come together as a nation to do that.

And fly your American Flag.

Have you forgotten?

Cave Canem!
Never surrender, never submit.

    It IS amazing how quickly some people become blase about the day and what it truly represents-
    I have to say one thing here- while the RIGHT to build a mosque may be there, it does not make it right, and IF Islam was a religion of love and tolerence, it would take into account the feelings of others harmed by this flagrant disregard of other people’s feelings- instead, Islam reveals itself to be a religion of conquest only, and as such, should be compelled to find another site.

    Can a Muslim be a good American???????*

    This question was forwarded to an official who worked in Saudi Arabia
    for over 20 years. Being on the scene first hand the following is his reply:

    *Theologically – no*. . . . Because his allegiance is to Allah, The moon
    god of Arabia .
    *Religiously – no*. . . Because no other religion is accepted by His Allah
    except Islam (Quran, 2:256)(Koran)
    *Scripturally – no*. . . Because his allegiance is to the five Pillars of
    Islam and the Quran
    *Geographically – no* . Because his allegiance is to Mecca , to which
    he turns in prayer five times a day.
    *Socially – no*. . . Because his allegiance to Islam forbids him to
    make friends with Christians or Jews.
    *Politically – no*. . Because they *must submit* to the mullahs
    (spiritual Leaders), who teach annihilation of Israel and destruction of
    America , the great Satan.
    *Domestically – no*. .. . Because he is instructed to marry four Women
    and beat and scourge his wife when she disobeys him (Quran 4:34 )
    *Intellectually – no*. . Because he cannot accept the American
    Constitution since it is based on Biblical principles and he believes
    the Bible to be corrupt.
    *Philosophically – no*. . . . Because Islam, Muhammad, and the Quran
    does not allow freedom of religion and expression. Democracy and Islam
    cannot co-exist. Every Muslim government is either dictatorial or autocratic.
    *Spiritually – no.* . . Because when we declare ‘one nation under GOD,’
    The Christian’s GOD is loving and kind, while Allah is *NEVER* referred
    to as heavenly father, nor is he ever called love in the Quran’s 99 excellent

    Sorry I wasn’t on the scene that is a quote within an email.

    Good to see that on 9/11 you folks can still find time to be hateful bigots and islamophobes. Good work, losers.

    Should the Park51 community center be built, Blake and Big Dog? Hell yes it should. The only people Park51 offends are idiots who think that being a Muslim was the reason the hijackers boarded those planes that day and not the fact that they were part of a fanatical Islamic death cult.

    Park51 probably won’t end up built at all but the truth is it should be moved from 4 blocks away to smack dab in the middle of ground-zero. We not only have a lot to learn about Islam, but Muslim Americans have a lot to learn of their history as well, good and bad. That includes studying the roots of Islamic fanaticism and learning how to counter that in every Islamic community both here and abroad.

    Can Muslims be good Americans, Victoria? Yes. They can and they are. There are millions of them and they want the same basic things out of life as you and I. You could make that same list about Christians and it would be equally stupid. Stop copying and pasting from moronic chain e-mails.

    • Big Dog says:

      Smack dab in the middle of Ground Zero. Right, when pigs fly. I would like to actually see that tried.

      I bet if the KKK wanted to build a house of worship next to the Holocaust museum that would be OK as well…

      I guess 70% of Americans are the idiots that Adam talks about. Typical lib, insult those with whom you disagree and then tell us where we went wrong.

      As long as we don’t offend anyone it matters not if we are offended.

      And to answer the question, yes it should be build but not where they want to build it.

      • Adam says:

        “I bet if the KKK wanted to build a house of worship next to the Holocaust museum that would be OK as well…”

        You’re still such a islamophobe that you actually believe the KKK is an appropriate comparison? Stop it. The Muslims that seek to build this community center have no ties to or support for terrorism.

        “I guess 70% of Americans are the idiots that Adam talks about.”

        On the subject of Islam and terrorism, yes. Americans are uninformed and ignorant.

        • Big Dog says:

          Well you might be right about uninformed and ignorant. They voted for Obama. Fell right into that moron.

          You should educate yourself about ties to terror before you type.

          Plenty of it there including the Imam (not Obama the other Imam)

        • Adam says:

          “Plenty of it there including the Imam…”

          There are no ties to terrorism there. Don’t talk to me about educating myself while you’re busy regurgitating flat out lies put out by the hateful morons leading your movement. Boy how the right loves to lie and smear Islam this season for political gain. It’s pathetic.

    • Schatzee says:

      You have a lot of nerve calling people here names for their feelings and beliefs and in the same freaking breath justifying and defending the very people that are breeding this type of hate and destruction in our society and around the world. I don’t like to banter back and forth with you all because it is pointless, like trying to teach logic and sense to a wall. But putting aside intelligence (or the lack thereof) the people here and across this country have every right to hate the people who terrorized our country and killed our people (as well as others). You have a right to hate, period. You don’t have a right to act on that hate without suffering the consequences. But your feelings are yours and no one can make them wrong.

      Feelings are not right or wrong – they just are and everyone, especially sensitive politically correct libs should learn to respect them and honor them regardless of whether or not you agree with them. Doesn’t mean you act on them; doesn’t mean you go around killing those you hate or starting riots because you don’t get your way or any of those things. But feel what you feel and let it go.

      People suffered tremendously on 9-11 and continue to suffer in this country and elsewhere because of the actions of Islamic Muslim MORONS who live to raise another generation of the same morons and then to kill themselves in the name of Allah. (I am more than happy to let them die for Allah – as long as they don’t take anyone but other radicals with them.)

      Your lack of disrespect for the American people and their rights while protecting others (not just muslims but illegals and homosexuals and anyone other small group of people whining for one reason or another) is astounding.

      I hope they build that “community center” right at ground zero – and the fricking ground is unstable and swallows the building and everyone in it and sends them straight to hell. Or a plane could fall on it…

      • Adam says:

        “…the people here and across this country have every right to hate the people who terrorized our country and killed our people (as well as others).”

        When terrorists try and build a mosque near ground zero let me know and I’ll be one of the first to join you in opposition to that.

        It’s past time for you and your fellow bigots to wise up and learn to differentiate between our enemy which is radical Islamic terrorism and our allies in this fight which are the 1.5 billion regular Muslims in the world that live peacefully and raise their families both here and abroad.

        You obviously feel good about yourself but the truth is there is nothing patriotic or redeeming about your ignorant attitude.

  5. victoria says:

    Typical Dem–gonna tell me what I can and cannot do here even though it is not his web site. And you cannot make that same list about Christians–that is another thing Dems try to do and that is paint Christians as violent. Sorry–not true.

    • Adam says:

      Alright fine then Victoria. You’re free to quote from moronic chain e-mails. Don’t let me tell you what to not do…

      Oh, I forgot how it works with people like Victoria. When tiny factions of Christians engage in violence that’s not true Christianity. When the very vast majority Muslims live normal, peaceful lives that’s not true Islam.

      I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. There are 1.5 billion Muslims in the world. Thank God they aren’t the violent barbarians the islamophobes make them out to be or we really would be in trouble.

      • Darrel says:

        It really just boils down to this Adam.

        Saw the pic on bartcop.com.

        “what I’d like to know from… the people who, keep talking about this Islamic community center, is what is it that this multifaith, multistoried community center being led by an American imam that two presidents, Republican and Democrat, have used as a–as an ambassador to the Muslim world, cultural ambassador to the Muslim world, what does that have to do with al-Qaeda?

        The answer is kind of simple, actually: Islam. But let’s call a spade a spade for a moment. If you are painting 1.5 billion people with the same brush of violence and, and, and extremism, you’re a bigot. And I think what’s, disturbing is the way that that’s become part of the natural discourse now.”

        • Big Dog says:

          I was not aware that 1.5 billion Muslims were trying to build the center. And if it is a multifaith center then there is no first amendment issue about religion. In other words, it has nothing to do with Islam as a religion because it is not a mosque, just a community center.

          Let’s see how multifaith it is when the Jews want in.

          And why not worry about the millions of Muslims who deny the right to worship to those of other faiths?

          The Imam wrote a book and in it he lets his radical side show.

          I know Darrel likes simplistic and his headstone is what he says it boils down to but what it boils down to is this.

        • Adam says:

          If every single Muslim in Indonesia was in full support of beheading Christians that would only be 14% of the world population of Muslims.

          At some point you have to step back and see that no matter how many brutal things you point out you still are not proving Islam as a whole is as brutal as the actions of Islamic extremists. The numbers just aren’t on your side.

          • Big Dog says:

            That would be significant if This were the only country where it takes place.

          • Big Dog says:

            And to carry it further, the link was in reponse to Darrel’s inane picture of a Muslim Soldier’s headstone indicating it all boiled down to that. Assuming that a quarter of Indonesians (and that is generous) support it, that would be ahigher percentage than the percentage of Muslims serving in our military. In 2008 there were fewer than 4000. If this minute percentage can be what it boils down to in the headstone picture then I think the numbers ARE on my side. I amke a better case than the headstone pic.

            And if we want to expand further, the headstone is what it boils down to because a Muslim soldier died so I could counter that what it boils down to is the Fort Hood killer who was Mulsim or the muslim soldier who threw the grenade in the tent of his fellow soldiers.

            Darrel should be careful when he boils something down and you should be careful when you defend it.

        • Darrel says:

          I didn’t expect Bigd to understand the boiling down process here. Too bad he can’t meet this widow in person and explain to her personally why she is a second class citizen and shouldn’t be allowed to practice her faith as freely as the other religions even though her husband died to protect that freedom.

          The conservatives used to do this to the Jews, or the catholics, or the blacks or gays or any other minority they used to hate because they are different. This is just the group this week. They’ll get over it someday as they are dragged kicking and screaming into the future where their white, ignorant behinds will be a minority.

          Either you think Americans who are of the same religion as this widow mourning her husband should be allowed to practice their religion freely in America, or you don’t.

          Bigd asks: “Let’s see how multifaith it is when the Jews want in.”>>

          Apparently Bigd wasn’t aware that they are doing this with assistance from the Jewish multicultural center. It is open to all.

          What a wonderful message this could have been to the world. America, one place in the world where Muslims and Jews can work together to put up a multicultural center together. Instead, because of our own noisy constituency of American Taliban we come off looking like a bunch of bigots. Pitiful.


  6. Big Dog says:

    Once again Darrel misleads. I have never, ever said that anyone could not or should not worship in any way they want.

    My opposition is not to the building but where they want to put it.

    All other arguments or accusations to the contrary are pointless.

    Move it somewhere else. A few blocks away.

    How multicultural can it be if 70% of people oppose it (a number that includes Muslims)?
