COMMENTARY OF THE DAY

ON THIS DAY 81 YEARS AGO AT 7:55 IN THE MORNING, THE FIRST DIVE BOMBERS FROM A JAPANESE AIRCRAFT CARRIER ARRIVED OVER Pearl Harbor. IN A LITTLE OVER AN HOUR THE JAPANESE COMPLETED THEIR MISSION AND OFFICIALLY BROUGHT THE UNITED STATES INTO WORLD WAR II.
PRESIDENT ROOSEVELT MADE THE STATEMENT THAT THIS WAS A DATE THAT WOULD LIVE IN INFAMY. HAS IT AND WILL IT? THE LIBERAL MEDIA AND THOSE OF THE POLITICAL CORRECTNESS PERSUASION HAVE BEEN PLAYING DOWN THIS DATE YEAR AFTER YEAR. IT IS NOW TALKED ABOUT AND MENTIONED IN AN APOLOGETIC WAY. TO DISCUSS IT MIGHT OFFEND THE JAPANESE. BUT WHAT CAN BE FOUND TO BE OFFENSIVE BY ANY AMERICAN IS JAPANESE TOURISTS VISITING AND TAKING PICTURES AT THE SUNKEN MONUMENT OF THE ARIZONA.
NO, WE SHOULD NOT HARBOR ILL FEELINGS TOWARDS THE JAPANESE OF TODAY. THERE ARE MANY GOOD LOYAL AMERICANS OF JAPANESE ANCESTRY. WE MUST LIVE IN PEACE AND HARMONY. HOWEVER, WE SHOULD NOT INSULT THE MEMORY OF ALL THOSE WHO FOUGHT AN DIED TO DEFEAT THAT EVIL EMPIRE.
MAN MUST LEARN FROM HIS MISTAKES SO THAT HE CAN AVOID REPEATING THEM. HOW CAN THAT HAPPEN IF THE PAST IS CAREFULLY SWEPT UNDER THE CARPET? MEMBERS OF THE MEDIA ARE WRONG NOT TO HEADLINE NEWS STORIES COMMEMORATING THE ANNIVERSARY OF Pearl Harbor TODAY. REGARDLESS, A FEW WILL REMEMBER AND KEEP THE WATCH.
A POINT OF IRONY IS THAT THE SAME LIBERAL MEDIA THAT WRITE AGAINST THE OFFENSIVE NATURE OF THE CONFEDERATE FLAG MAKE NO COMMENT REGARDING THE JAPANESE FLAG OF THE RISING SUN -- A SYMBOL THAT HAS COST THE LIVES OF MANY AMERICANS AND OTHERS -- A FLAG THAT REPRESENTS BARBARIC ACTS COMMITTED TO OPPOSING MILITARY FORCES AND CIVILIANS.
