Sad, Sad Boston
The crowd rose to its feet and howled its approval when Boston City Councilman Chuck Turner took the stage categorizing America as "an obscenity". Said Turner, "The reality is, we have to cleanse the soul of America. Our soul is covered in militarism, economic exploitation and racism. We need to cleanse ourselves. We need to acknowledge the obscenity that America is. We need to acknowledge that people around the world acknowledge that America the beautiful is America the obscene...we are obscene, we are a joke to the rest of the world." Turner then went on to claim that local, state and federal officials plotted and carried out the murder of Dr. Martin Luther King. When he said this, many people in the crowd nodded in agreement. Turner left the stage to a thunderous ovation. He was followed by long-time leftist activist, avowed Socialist and Brown University Professor of English Literature William Keach.(Emphasis mine)Boston, Boston....Oh where has your rich heritage gone? Clearly, no one is manning the shop.
While residing in Rhode Island I would take my family to Boston and was always amazed with the rich American History; it truly is the place where this great nation got its proper footing. To see how far this once brave city has fallen is sad. I'd stay away from the water there if I were you. Geez people - a little sanity would be appreciated.
Here's Rocco's description of Galloway's screed:
Galloway is best known for his support of terrorists whom he refers to as "the Iraqi resistance," his admiration for Saddam Hussein, his allegedly substantial involvement in the "Oil-for-Food" scandal, and his seething hatred of the West. "It’s not the Muslims who are the terrorist," says Galloway. "The biggest terrorists are Bush, and Blair, and Berlusconi, and Aznar, but it is definitely not a clash of civilizations. George Bush doesn’t have any civilization, he doesn’t represent any civilization." During Tuesday's speech, Galloway reinforced many of these points. He lambasted Israel and U.S. support for it and lamented that though Israel has the biggest cache of WMDs in the Middle East, it has never been brought before the U.N. to face sanctions. (Galloway conveniently ignored the fact that Israel has never used its WMDs, even though it has been under assault by homicidal Palestinians intent on its destruction for more than forty years). Galloway praised Cindy Sheehan and urged the crowd to attend nation-wide antiwar rallies planned for September 24 and 25. He laid blame for the Katrina disaster on George Bush. He blamed the cause of the 9/11 attacks on U.S. foreign policy, which he deemed as being responsible for having "created the swamp of radical Islam" from which the 9/11 attackers arose. He blamed the creation of "hundreds of thousands" of "new terrorists" on Bush's War on Terror. He finished the speech with a rhetorical declaration of war against the U.S. by saying, "You are either with your country going around the world occupying countries and stealing their things or you're against it."See here for a live-blog post from the debate last night between Galloway and Hitchens.
The night in Boston turned Rocco's stomach as his brilliant description of the events turned mine. These people are insane and our MSM has made them their 'Darlings'. Cut from the same cloth maybe?
It is stories such as these that keep me blogging. If my little site informs just a few people, who would never otherwise hear of the insanity taking place in our cities, then all the effort and time is worth it.
Also, head over to Rocco's blog "The Autonomist" for many pictures of the event. Notice Galloway's "Security Detail" and the choice of books from the evening is an eye-opener as well.
Our American fore-fathers are spinning in their graves. Thanks Boston.
