Loomis uncorks a letter to the editor in Tuesday's News-Leader that's full of heel clicking masquerading as patriotism. Check this out:
As Americans, we have our own culture, our own society, our own language and our own lifestyle. We speak English, not Spanish, Portuguese, Russian or any other language. Therefore, if you wish to become a part of our society, learn the language.
"In God We Trust" is our national motto. This is not some Christian, right-wing, political slogan. We adopted this motto because Christian men and women, on Christian principles, founded this nation, and this is clearly documented. If God offends you, then I suggest you consider another part of the world as your new home, because God is part of our culture.
If Stars and Stripes offend you, or you don't like Uncle Sam, then you should seriously consider a move to another part of this planet. We are happy with our culture and have no desire to change, and we really don't care how you did things where you came from. This is our country, our land and our lifestyle. Our First Amendment gives every citizen the right to express his opinion and we will allow you every opportunity to do so! If you don't like it, I highly encourage you to take advantage of one other great American freedom. The right to leave!
•Christian God only.
•Our flag rocks.
•Our culture rules.
•If you don't like it, you can lick it.
