Sometimes I come across something so patriotic, so red, white, and blue-blooded American, that I feel compelled to stop everything, stand up, and recite the Pledge of Allegiance. This is one of those instances.
Dakota Meyer, a 26-year old Marine vet from Kentucky who was awarded the Medal of Honor back in 2011, is really sick of the FBI telling him and the rest of the military to “lay low” and rid their social media accounts of anything that could warrant unwanted attention from “violent extremists” or, essentially, let ISIS know who they are. In fact, Meyer is so sick of it, he let the ballsiest bald eagle in this, our great nation, located approximately between his ring and index fingers, fly and did the exact opposite: he threatened the terrorists. As a matter of fact, he asked them to show up at his doorstep.

“When I start having to change my life because I’m worried about something that could happen to me, that means terrorism is winning,” said Meyer in an interview with WHAS 11. “That means terrorism is working. I refuse to let these idealistic, radical bullies change the way that I live.”
Brings a tear to your eye, doesn’t it? If you need anything else to give you a giant America boner, he was hailed as a hero for entering a kill zone in Afghanistan to search for missing troops in 2009. He managed to carry the bodies of four of his friends out during the ambush.
On top of inviting ISIS over to his place, he would also like to know if they are interested in joining his book club, which looks like they will primarily be reading and discussing the finer points of the Handbook for Marine NCOs. Maybe catch up on some American history too, learn how things are done around here…
“I’m not saying I want ISIS to go attack the military. I’m speaking on behalf of myself. I just want us, as Americans, to stop living in fear and stop worrying about what they’re going to do. I want us to stand up against these people.”
America: Land of the Free, Home of the BAMFs..
