To Whom It May Concern:

I am an angry American. I have watched the repeated images of the World Trade Center crashing to the ground; I have sat watching the news every night as some Islamic extremist spouts off about the evils of America. I have watched as our troops deploy overseas to protect those rights we hold dear. 

Yesterday, I watched the news as I have every night I can remember and I was disgusted with what I saw. No it wasn’t a terrorist chanting against America, it wasn’t another story on corporations taking advantage of employees, it was even more disturbing to me.

It seems as though ABC has taken the Constitution of the United States on. Incredibly Peter Jennings (CANADIAN Drop-out) and ABC appear to believe that while the freedom of the press is non -negotiable, freedom of speech for honest Americans is. ABC decided to pull Toby Keith from the 4th of July (AMERICAN Holiday) special due to “controversial” lyrics in the song “Courtesy of the Red, White and Blue”. I have news for you, the lyrics are no more controversial than the daily dialog of General Hospital, an ABC soap opera. 

Toby Keith is singing from the heart, he is letting the world know what he and other Americans think. I for one believe he hit the nail on the head with this song. Who are we afraid of offending? The terrorists, some hypersensitive overly politically correct pansy that thinks that the terrorists have learned their lesson so lets just leave them alone. The freedom of speech is a right that I for one hold above all. 

I cannot believe the narrow-minded attitude of ABC and Peter Jennings. If Peter Jennings doesn’t like the attitude or controversy surrounding the patriotism, he has the freedom to return to Canada and become the leading Canadian Broadcaster. 

I have to ask myself, is ABC merely trying to cause some controversy of its own. Is ABC trying to appeal to that minority that thinks the United States is wrong to be so angry? 

So yes, you could say I am an angry American.
