Whose Rights?

If we have a right to self defence
then so do niggers and wops
and we'll keep on fighting forever
'till one of us loses or stops.

If you have a right to religion
then so do towellheads and jews.
Rights must be right for everyone,
not just those with the power to choose.

If you have a right to break the law
then everyone has the same.
If you have the right to go to war
don't do it in my name.
