An Ol' Broad's Ramblings
The Council on American-Islamic Relations announced Monday night that it had successfully prevented retired Lieutenant General William G. “Jerry” Boykin from speaking at an upcoming prayer breakfast at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point.
“We welcome Mr. Boykin’s withdrawal from this event and hope that the speaker who replaces him will offer cadets a spiritual message that promotes tolerance and mutual understanding,” said CAIR National Executive Director Nihad Awad in a statement.
When are we going to stop bowing to this terrorist front group????
West Point initially balked at the calls to remove Boykin — a former military intelligence officer — from the event.
Lt. Col. Sherri Reed of West Point told The Associated Press that cadets are “purposefully exposed to different perspectives and cultures.”
I can well understand why our future military officers would be exposed to “different perspectives and cultures”. Wasn’t it Sun Tzu who said “Know your enemy and know yourself and you can fight a hundred battles without disaster.” Since we ARE fighting against Islam, who declared war on us a long time ago, our young men and women need to know all they can about the ‘enemy’.
“The National Prayer Breakfast Service will be pluralistic with Christians, Jewish, and Muslim cadets participating,” Reed said. “We are comfortable and confident that what retired Lt. Gen. Boykin will share about prayer, soldier care and selfless service, will be in keeping with the broad range of ideas normally considered by our cadets.”
I’d really like to know why there are Muslims at West Point, and in our military in the first place. Would FDR have allowed Nazis to sign up? Would West Point have accepted Brown Shirts? I see no difference in the two! Muslims were allies of the Nazis, and yet, here we are, trying to suck up to a group that would see our demise.
CAIR and the group VoteVets.org pushed hard for a retraction of Boykin’s invitation to the event due to his “Islamophobic” views.
CAIR and People For the American Way failed to stop a speech Boykin gave in Ocean City, Md., last week. This week it seems they have been successful.
I am completely disgusted that this Lt General would cave to the enemy since they evidently failed from intimidating him previously. Muslims and socialists working together to silence him, and many others, should give EVERYONE pause!
