[DP:] They’re coming. They’re getting you. They have a lot of apparatuses on the scene.

[Kevin Cosgrove:] It doesn’t feel like it, lady. You get them in from all over. You get ’em in from Jersey. I don’t give a shit. Ohio.

Amazing post Chris. Truly awesome

Re: Kevin Cosgrove 911 Call From Twin Towers

The trauma of that is real to this day and Muslim people, for whatever reason think they can tell us what to do. They have the nerve to tell us to back off. Never going to happen. Let's fight to the death because one or the other of us is going to the grave and it won't be the Americans. I thought they learned their lesson when Saddam was hiding in the bushes and his son's had been blown to pieces but oh God no. They knew then that trying to take on the USA was a losing game.

Me too. In some ways, the good times ended that day permanently, but I will never stop fighting for my people or my country. I don't trust them or want them in my country. Believe me, they feel the same way and hate our guts as much as we hate them and no liberal bullshit is gonna change that.
