I watched a bit of War Stories with Oliver North on Fox last night. It was a special focusing on professional baseball players who served in World War II. The attack at Pearl Harbour killed about 2,500 Americans but a little known fact is that of those 2,500 "only" 68
were civilians. Bob Feller
, the great pitcher from the Cleveland Indians was asked by Colonel North why he signed up and if anyone was angry at him for doing so. His answer was simple yet profound. After explaining that some were not exactly "happy" about him volunteering everyone understood that it was his obligation to fight for his country. Not once did he mention President Roosevelt, Mr. Feller didn't need the President to tell him why he had to fight. He saw the country he loved under attack and he knew what he had to do. Nor did Mr Feller mention the numerous blunders made by the Roosevelt administration during the war, he understood the need to take the fight to the enemy. I have no idea if the 8 time all star was a democrat or a Republican and at that time I'm sure it didn't matter. We were all Americans.
My how things have changed over the next few generations. On September 11th 2001 more than 2,900 civilians were slaughtered right here in the homeland by a vicious enemy. During World War II there were millions of "Bob Fellers" and in this war we had someone similar to Mr. Feller, his name was Pat Tillman. He left his million dollar football contract with the Arizona Cardinals and joined the army. As we all know Mr. Tillman was killed in Afghanistan. What I want to concentrate on is how the party of Franklin D. Roosevelt treated Pat Tillman who felt the need to defend the country he loved that was under attack. How about this
title from democrat Rene Gonzalez?Pat Tillman is not a hero: He got what was coming to him
Or how about this headline from democrat
The CIA Killed Pat Tillman
I wonder what kind of headlines there would have been if Bob Feller had been killed during World War II? What has happened to the democrat party? Even with the infiltration of communists in the party during the late 40's to the late 60's they weren't nearly as viciously anti-American as they are now. Are democrats so partisan that they will only fight if a fellow democrat is president? Would they even fight then? If Al Gore were President and he declared war on Iraq would the democrats have a different opinion on the war? Or is their anti -Americanism too entreched?
Could you imagine an entire party demanding the impeachment of Roosevelt because he invaded Algeria as he was chasing the Germans? Well, that's what democrats are doing now that Bush invaded Iraq chasing al Qaeda leader Zarqawi and his fellow terrorists. After listening to Bob Feller it's almost inconceivable that democrats would yell and scream about weapons of mass destruction when we are in fact chasing down and killing the enemy. What's more important, the fact that we were mistaken about the weapons of mass destruction or the fact that we're killing the enemy?
This country is infected with a cancer and it's called liberalism. This cancer has found a host in the democrat party. We'll never be cured until this cancer is eradicated. I just hope and pray that the democrat party implodes before they do anymore damage and more Americans are sacrificed at their alter of political correctness.
