PLACE: STERLING HIGH SCHOOL, 1608 4th AVENUE IN STERLING
SIGN THE PETITION: http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/illinoisgitmo/
Prisons attract one thing – friends and family. In the case of President Obama’s planned transfer of Gitmo detainees to Thomson Illinois – we are talking about Al-Qaeda friends and family. You don’t have to be a national security expert to know that this is the wrong move for Illinois. The last thing we need is to have Al-Qaeda landing at O’Hare and taking a Greyhound Bus across Illinois to their new home. Illinois doesn’t want it and Illinois doesn’t need it.
Now if someone had told me a year ago that we’d be bringing Al-Qaeda to Illinois – I would not have believed them. I thought the reason we fought the war in Iraq was to keep Al-Qaeda in Iraq and in their caves and not on our soil. This move by President Obama represents one of the greatest threats to homeland security in the history of the United States of America.
I believe that if we bring Al-Qaeda to Illinois-Chicago, we will be hit within the year. Before 9/11, no one thought an attack on a major American city was possible. Whether you are in New York or Chicago, we cannot forget how real that threat is for all of us. It is imperative largest that we go down to Sterling on Tuesday with the largest numbers possible. We must make our voices heard. We are calling on concerned citizens from veterans and police to construction workers and mothers to come to Sterling and help us push Al-Qaeda out of Illinois.
They say this is about jobs. This is not about jobs. The State of Illinois is better off cutting taxes so that businesses can actually stay in Illinois and create real jobs. Only Illinois’ bankrupt corrupt tax and spend liberal politicians would view Al-Qaeda as a jobs program.
Please join me and all the dedicated, amazing groups behind this protest of the Thomas Prison plan and all the other plans to give enemy combatants in the war on terror the same rights as American citizens – our Tea Party groups, Band of Mothers, and so many others. See you on Tuesday in Sterling at 1pm sharp! As a wise man once said, “If not now, when?!” JOIN US NOW!!!
Thank you and God Bless,
