Equal Time with Bob Boudelang
"
Who Can Deny Strom Thurmond and Lester Maddox Were Not Tragedies For America?"
July 4, 2003
By Bob Boudelang, Angry American Patriot

The Silver Book of Golden Memories in the sky burns just a little bit brighter this week with the death of two great Americans who stood for keeping the tyranny of diversity and equal rights out of our every day life. Lester Maddox and Strom Thurmond are both dead, and a grateful nation is happy. Now they are where Richard Nixon and Joe McCarthy have gone, where they are all getting what they deserved.

Fortunately, there are many others to take up the good work they spent many recent years pretending they were not doing. But those of us who felt the same was not fooled, and now you cannot prove they are bigots as if they were still saying what they felt.

Strom Thurmond was in the Senate longer than anybody else in history, and spent more time arguing against letting Negroes vote than anybody else too. He also once knocked down a Senator to keep him from voting for civil rights. If only we had Senators like him in recent years, which we had him but he was not what he once was.

And what a career of accomplishment it was, too. Unlike those disgraceful do-something Senators who will go nameless, like Shrillary or Osama Bin Daschle, Strom Thurmond did not waste time producing legislation or coming up with wasteful programs.

Meanwhile Lester Maddox was a hero to many of us who wish we could chase blacko-Americans with guns. Later he became governor of Georgia even though he got less votes than the other guy, showing that he and Our Great President are cut from the same white cloth.

How ironic that they both died the same week that the Supreme Court decided that the tyranny of affirmative action and homosexualityism not being illegal would stand to oppress Americans like me.

This is an outrage, especially the one which means gayo-Americans can continue to have rights like normal Americans. As Justice Scalia (who is not a dangerous crazy so stop saying that) says, "State laws against bigamy, same-sex marriage, adult incest, prostitution, masturbation, adultery, fornication, bestiality and obscenity are likewise sustainable only in light of Bowers validation of laws based on moral choices." Who does not share Judge Scalia's worry about people who masturbate not being sent to prison? Now we face the danger of magazines being sold on every newsstand that people could take home and jack off to.

Meanwhile, who is not proud of Our Great President, who said about the Iraqi attacks, "Bring them on!" And the very next day there were ten Americans wounded in new attacks in Iraq. It goes to show that when George Bush speaks, people listen! And not everyone laughs, either! So there.

In conclusion, let me wish everyone a happy July fourth. Let us pause to remember our foundering fathers, who shot their fires around the world so that one day in the future the son of a former President could take office without being elected because God wanted him to, and build the kind of country where suspects are held without trials and lawyers, Congress could be ignored, the rich and powerful could get the special favors they want, and people would have to watch what they say out loud. If George Washington and Thomas Jefferson were alive today, they would be even older than Strom Thurmond and probably dead. But if they were alive today and the same age as they were in 1776, then who can doubt what they would say and do? Not me. Amen.


Bob Boudelang is a Republican team leader who is not going to spend the Fourth of July drunk so stop saying that. He can be reached at bobboudelang@yahoo.com
