Pat Boone Hits Obama or Who Wants to Call Boone a KKK Member?

In 1992, I had the pleasure of meeting Pat Boone on a golf course in Palm Desert, California. He is a very caring, spiritual, and insightful man.

Did you know he is also a Republican? Since there is a persistent urban legend that the Republican Party started, runs, or is the Ku Klux Klan, who out there has the guts to publicly accuse Pat Boone of being a member of the Klan? Who has the guts to even accuse him of being a "racist"? After all, he is a Republican.

And as a Republican, he has some choice things to say about Senator Barack Obama. Click the link above for the full article from

"Of course, the mesmerized young and the entranced older followers don't seem to grasp that 'big government' is us – the millions of beleaguered, overtaxed, desperately hard-working citizens who will admittedly be taxed even more heavily, all manipulated by politicians like Obama and Clinton, doling out our money to accomplish their ambitions, all the while making us think we're getting something for nothing. Talk about a magic spell!"

"Hopefully, more hard facts and some revelations will expose the inexperience and sleight of hand imagery of this pied piper from Illinois. I've just read a bone-chilling account by Jill Stanek in Citizen magazine of the time she and others lobbying for passage of the state Born Alive Infant Protection Act confronted then newly elected U.S. Sen. Obama about his longtime opposition to the act. It was simple legislation that would require hospitals to care for infants who survive abortion, the process implemented to kill them. Obama spoke against the legislation in 2001 and 2002, and single-handedly defeated it in committee in 2003.

"Stanek stood in Obama's path and told him, 'Senator, we are going to pass Born Alive here in Illinois this year.' He smiled smoothly and agreed, 'I think you will,' adding, 'I would have voted for the Born Alive Infant Protection Act in Illinois had it been worded the same as the federal bill. I think that's the position the Democrats should take.'

He didn't mention that he had personally stopped his committee from adding the federal wording. With him gone from the state Senate, the Born Alive legislation finally did pass in 2005.

And now, defending his staunch support for abortion for any woman or girl who wants it, he has uttered, 'I'm going to teach [my daughters] … about values and morals, but if they make a mistake, I don't want them punished with a baby!' His ideas of morality and right behavior don't include accepting responsibility for 'making mistakes,' apparently. No, let the innocent unborn pay the price, not his daughter."
