Another Pat speaks out

Speaking on WorldNetDaily's radio broadcast Farah Live, legendary singer Pat Boone pulled no punches as he weighed in on the protests in Crawford, Texas:

"This lady and the groups that have been demonstrating in front of the president's ranch in Crawford and following him around are the very same people that were the dropout, turn-on, anti-war peace activists back [in the Vietnam War era]," Boone said. "They still have this crazy notion that by just being peaceful and maybe toking up or something like that it's like an ostrich with its head in the sand maybe the danger and the bad guys will go away and leave you alone, which is not gonna happen."

He's exactly right. These are nothing more than displaced hippies trying to re-capture the "magic" of the Vietnam era. The irony is that while they are holding hands and swaying side to side with their pyramid hats, men in helmets 6000 miles away are giving their blood and their lives to protect their freedom to act like utter fools.

Pat's reality check continues:

"But, look," he said, "when [terrorists] destroy the World Trade Center right in front of your eyes in Manhattan and you know they're going to do the same and worse things, to just sit back and say 'Oh, let's try not to make 'em mad at us, let's don't rock the boat, let's just say peace is the answer, we love you, we love you' ... we're just sitting ducks. More World Trade Centers, more 9-11s are gonna happen unless we try to take the battle to them on their turf instead of letting 'em bring it to us on ours."

That's pretty much it, folks. Like it or not, we have to take the fight to the enemy if we are to prevent them from coming here again. We also need to give our troops real support. This means standing strong and letting them know we are proud of them. Not blubbering in front of television cameras about bringing our "babies" home. What do you think it does to a soldier's morale when they witness that kind of behavior?
