This is a repost from a while back, because the problem hasn’t gone away!
The above short film was produced by Unity Productions Foundation in association with Gardner Films, Inc. (www.gardnerfilms.com) and was directed by the Oscar-nominated, multiple Emmy Award winning documentary filmmaker, Robert Gardner.
Go to this website — My Fellow American — to get involved and help counter the hatred and gross stereotypes about Muslims that permeate our culture. All people in this country and the world deserve to be treated with the same respect and honor.
Here is a little bit about My Fellow American.
My Fellow American is an online film and social media project that calls upon concerned Americans to pledge and spread a message that Muslims are our fellow Americans. It asks people of other backgrounds to pledge, and share a real life story about a Muslim friend, neighbor, or colleague that they admire. Using the power of social media, My Fellow American seeks to change the narrative – from Muslims as the other, to Muslims as our fellow Americans.
Most Americans have never met an American Muslim. Many only know Muslims through the way they are portrayed in the media. American Muslims are so often vilified as “the other” that it is possible not to recognize that most were born in the U.S. Or that those who immigrated here came seeking the same freedoms and opportunities that have always attracted people to America.
Please share this post with your friends and family. If we all do a little, a lot will get done. If we all do a lot, the world will change!

One thought on “An America That Cares About All People!”
Ron Paul’s campaign manager in 2008, Kent Snyder, died of pneumonia at age 49 (was it because he didn’t have health insurance due to a pre-existing condition and therefore didn’t to a hospital quickly enough?). Even though Snyder raised tens of millions for the campaign, Paul never provided PRIVATE health insurance for staffers.
Snyder died two weeks after Paul dropped his bid for the presidency in 2008. Paul hailed Snyder for convincing him to run, and said right after his death, “Like so many in our movement, Kent sacrificed much for the cause of liberty,”
It appears former Florida Rep. Alan Grayson was correct when he famously framed Republican “healthcare” that, “The Republicans want you to die quickly if you get sick.”
