Why Not?

Reader comment on item: Muhammad Ali v. George W. Bush

Submitted by Yehoshua Zeller (United States), Nov 29, 2005 at 11:55

Dear Dr. Pipes,

In this day of Political Correctness,why not honor those who oppose what the United States of America stands for in the world?

Jane Fonda was elected as one of the top women of America for her contributions to this country (Top 100 Women of the Century). The Bible tells us that at the End of Times, Right will be wrong,good will be bad,and evil will be honored over holiness.

Our Media honors mostly anti-American icons of Hollywood and Hollywood in turn distorts history showing our people ,institutions and soldiers as the bad guys while the enemies of the USA were really the heroes. Lincoln now is a racist ... , plus Washington did his thing for the money and power he could achieve from the new nation also.Visit the Presidents' Hall of Fame in Disney World and realise that the whole history of the nation was to promote black servitude and all leaders were racists as well. History has been re-written and revised as in the Novel 1984 and Darkness at Noon. So why not honor an African Muslim ?

No wonder Ali thinks Mr. Bush is crazy. Would Israel honor Arafat? The world did ...and he won the Nobel Peace award too!
Submitting....
