"If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest for freedom, go home and leave us in peace. We seek not your council nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." - Samuel Adams

Hating America in the name of 'art'.

Plans to stage an anti-American play featuring Osama bin Laden dressed up as Santa Claus in a city church on the anniversary of September 11 have sparked a furious row. A Conservative front bench MSP today branded the production "intentionally provocative".

The controversial play by acclaimed playwright Andrew Dallmeyer, called Wanted: Dead or Alive, will be performed in the Augustine Church on George IV Bridge tomorrow night. It tells the story of a man who works as Santa Claus in a shopping mall in Florida. As the play progresses it emerges that the man is actually Osama bin Laden in disguise. The play contains strongly anti-American sentiments and condemns United States foreign policy.

When someone with less 'liberal' points of view try to start a debate, based strictly on facts, it is conedemned as racism, hate-speechor something of that nature. Hating America and mocking it and its people is just a means of sparking a 'debate' about how to further condemn and hate America. Self-righteous fools.
