    <<If the kids use these memes for that purpose, then, yes you hae to worry
    about them. But the memes themselves can be used for other purposes, such
    as defending the faith in other ways. The teachers are using the memes to
    attack Americans. The Taliban used basically the same memes to attack other
    Afghans. The memes themselves are not anti-American.>>

    an attack on Americans" is not anti-American.
