Happy Independence Day, America! What a grateful nation we should be, especially on a day like today. Megyn Kelly had a group of 14 wounded warriors on her show to inspire us all. And to remind us why we are so grateful for the freedoms we have. It is because of men like this that we can celebrate being an American on this beautiful day.
It seems some rookies were on the scene of the apprehension, and they thought Agent Diaz might have roughed up the perp a bit too much. So now, Agent Diaz is sitting in prison, in solitary confinment for two years. I will not say much more about this case, except to speculate that there might be some rookie agents who don’t make it out of their training phase. P.C., indeed. This is inexcusable and just follows along in the footsteps of Agents Ramos and Campeon, to name only a few.
Hey, Mr. Perry…are you listening to this? You better get on this if you want to be on the right side of this situation.
Today on such a solemn occasion, Megyn Kelly was on the air for an extended weekend version of America Live to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the terrorist attacks of 9/11/01. This has to be one of the most poignant and moving segments of any of the shows today, and of course it had to be on the best daytime cable show, Megyn Kelly’s America Live.
Megyn’s guest was Alice Hoagland, who is the mother of Mark Bingham (although the chyron, I believe, incorrectly indicated his name as Matt Bingham), one of the heroes of United flight 93, and she has been one of the most vocal proponents of the heroes of flight 93.
Bingham, along with Jeremy Glick and Todd Beamer, were just 3 of the stalwart patriots who decided to take charge and be the deciders of their own fates. They all knew they were probably going to die, but refused to let it happen on the terrorists’ terms. They recruited as many willing passengers aboard United 93 as they could to gather with them, collect make-shift weapons, and summon the courage and will to rush the terrorists, reclaim the cockpit and control of the airplane, and most likely save the lives of hundreds on the ground in D.C. They did so selflessly, probably knowing all too well their fates were sealed.
Recently Megyn Kelly had Todd Beamer’s father, David, on her show to talk about the heroism that Todd and his fellow passengers showed aboard flight United 93 by refusing to succumb to a fate they did not determine. What they did do was to decide to make their own fate by denying the terrorists their want, which was to hit, most likely, the U.S. Capitol, by banding together to fight them and commandeer the plane. They knew regardless of their decisions, they were all going to die, but thanks to folks like Todd Beamer, Mark Bingham, Jeremy Glick and others, they did what needed to be done – they made sure to deny the Islamofascists their intended target, knowing they would all die in the process, as the plane descended at over 500 MPH into that field in Shanksville, PA. They were truly the first American fighers to engage in the battle in the global war on terror against Islamo-fascists and will always be remembered as such.
Note: You hear David Beamer talk about saying the Pledge of Allegiance and it sounds a bit disconnected, but his appearance on America Live came directly after Megyn’s previous segment on the Brookline MA controvery over elementary school children saying the Pledge of Allegiance.
Megyn Kelly featured this story of PC crap spewed by the group calling themselves the Brookline Political Action for Peace, led by some footstool named Marty Rosenthal. Apparently sissy Rosenthal is so outraged at the Pledge of Allegiance that it makes his “skin crawl.”
Mr. Rosenthal, might I suggest a liberal application of Calamine lotion instead of tormenting the good citizens of this country who WANT to enjoy their First Amendment rights in expressing their pride in being an American citizen, and expressing so by pledging allegiance to her?
What a tool.
P.S. Is it just me, or does it bother anyone else that in this piece it’s revealed that junior high and high school students generally choose to opt out of the pledge? We are truly losing the very fabric of this nation if young people are so flippant about patriotism.
