I’m aware that the most shocking part of this is the fact that Pat Boone is still alive. Regardless, I decided to post the story here, though I refuse to link to the hate den World Net Daily, so you’ll have to Google that for yourself.
I’m a Crazy, Delusional Asshole The mosque at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue
By Pat Boone
This isn’t easy to write. It’s not fun to say. It’s virtually unthinkable to realize and acknowledge.
While the controversy still rises and rages on, around the proposed “Cordoba House” mosque and Muslim cultural center right on the edge of Ground Zero, where the World Trade Center stood till Sept. 11, 2001 – there is a world-famous building, dedicated by its current residents to similar purposes, in the middle of Washington, D.C.
We call it the White House.
Some liberal, “change happy” Obamaphiles will instantly call me names for even thinking what I’ve just said, but I want you and any objective reader to look at the following facts. Then see if you can come to a different conclusion.
I enjoy the term “Obamaphiles” because it makes me think of “pedophiles,” and also reinforces my previously held belief that all liberals fuck children. Go on.
We are all, to a great or lesser degree, the inevitable product of how we were raised, what we were taught and experienced as children. Barack Hussein Obama was born to an 18-year-old Caucasian woman and a Kenyan father. Virtually all his early influences, including his biological father and his Indonesian stepfather, his mother and grandparents – were socialists, atheists, and/or Muslims.
Okay, so why am I posting the rantings of an elderly crooner who made a living stealing black people’s music?
Because I feel this serves as a nice companion to the piece I wrote earlier today about how the wingnuts are using xenophobia as a cover for their preexisting bigotry. That’s not to say they’re consciously doing this, but everyone should keep it in mind as the right rants and raves about “Barack Hussein Obama,” (emphasis on the Hussein – that dirty, foreigny name,) and Kenyans, socialists, atheists, Muslim, and all the rest of the baddies – conveniently lumped together in the shape of a black man, who is president.
Pat Boone has never avoided twisting Obama’s words to portray him as an other. In fact, he has outright lied on more than one occasion – all in the spirit of painting Obama as a dirty, Muslim-loving foreigner. Despite lying repeatedly, Boone is given a national platform on WND and that other jewel of journalism, Newsbusters, because he is a iconic vintage figure. When people (read: elderly white people) think of Pat Boone, they remember “the good ol’ days” when those people (blacks, women, gays, Muslims, etc.) knew their place.
The idea that Boone represents anything besides his own bigotry is absolutely laughable. He isn’t taking a stand for America, or Americans, but rather for his own intolerance. When GM CEO Roger Smith closed several auto plants in Flint, Michigan, ultimately costing 80,000 people their jobs and economically devastating the city, Americans really needed help. Instead of defending the autoworkers, Boone rushed to the aid of his wealthy, elderly, white male friend, Roger Smith, calling him a “can-do” kind of guy.
Boone has always been, and continues to be, the champion of a very small sect in society: wealthy, white elites, who worship the Christian God. That’s why he’s been recruited by fringe right websites to scribble his musings for their frantic readership. Even poor white people are so desperate to be included in the exclusive VIP club of the rulers that they’re willing to cheer on assholes like Boone, the champion of mass layoffs, simply so they feel like they’re part of the winning team.
