Ali - No Friend of the USA

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

Submitted by J Glueck (United States), Nov 29, 2005 at 17:36

Dear Mr. Pipes:

It is most appropriate at this time in the life of a pathetic figure like Muhammed Ali that you expose his true legacy. This man is a disgrace to the USA and should never be honored for anything other than his early boxing accomplishments. Because he has been demented for years, his past is whitewashed and he is held up as a role model of the black or Islamic community.

Mr. Bush and his allies are trolling for innocuous ways to be politically correct in some harmless, feel-good way. Mr. Ali is not the guy to honor. Thank you for telling it the way it truly is.
