John Ashcroft, former Attorney General, is a man to be admired for many reasons. One of them was his recent answer to an obvious ambush question:
The first question came from a woman who asked if Ashcroft would be willing to be subjected to waterboarding.
“The things that I can survive, if it were necessary to do them to me, I would do,” he said.
I’ll bet the moonbat was taken aback by that one! And Ashcroft also reiterated a simple truth:
Ashcroft said that the Patriot Act “makes perfect sense.”
But the unhinged nutcases were out in force, not showing the former Governor, Senator and Attorney General the proper respect he was due. They all but spit on the honorable man. Atrocious!
Members of Students for Peace and Justice staged a silent protest at Ashcroft’s speech, and a number of people heckled Ashcroft, sometimes snorting in derision, at other times shouting challenges. In many cases, the heckler was escorted out of the auditorium by student ushers.
But still, the truth did get out over boos and undeserved mockery and rampant America hatred.
Ashcroft talked about the events that led to the Patriot Act. The day after 9/11, “the president said, ‘Do not let this happen again,’ ” Ashcroft said.
“Let’s look at the law and see what we can do that would help us. We need to think differently, think outside the box . . . never think outside the Constitution.”
When that comment was met with boos, Ashcroft responded: “Whooping and hollering in an auditorium will not get that done.”
The left can’t help it, they think they’re descended from apes, and they sure do act like it. All in a day’s work for America’s fifth column. Happy, wackjobs?
