Apparently Xenophobia isn’t reserved for Paul Broun’s opinions on who should be subjected to TSA checks at the airport anymore. Now it’s for people that are offended that “America The Beautiful” isn’t reserved for people that speak English. Because, you know, the great melting pot of our country and what we stand for to others must only apply to those others that look and talk like us.
Because, you know, all these songs we learned to sing about our country were about ourselves. Somewhere, Woody Guthrie is spinning in his grave.
This land is your land This land is my land
From California to the New York island;
From the red wood forest to the Gulf Stream waters
This land was made for you and Me.
