Robin­son off-base in com­par­i­son

Cecil Whig - - FRONT PAGE -


It is no sur­prise that one of the most out­ra­geous and dumb­est state­ments ever printed came from Eu­gene Robin­son’s Nov. 11 an­tiTrump col­umn.

In his usual bab­bling mind­less drib­ble, Robin­son claimed that Don­ald Trump’s pres­i­den­tial cam­paign was as painful as the Bataan Death March. This death march was or­ga­nized by the Ja­panese Army in April 1942 af­ter the sur­ren­der of ap­prox­i­mately 75,000 Amer­i­can and Filipino soldiers dur­ing World War II. Dur­ing the 65-mile march, around 12,000 of these soldiers never made it. These 12,000 died from star­va­tion, be­ing beaten and those too weak to talk were bay­o­neted. Many who sur­vived the death march died later in Ja­panese prison camps.

Who in their right ming would com­pare thou­sands of Amer­i­can and Filipino soldiers who were tor­tured and slaugh­tered to a pres­i­den­tial cam­paign where only feel­ings got hurt. Robin­son is so full of hate that he can­not be taken se­ri­ously as a colum­nist and should apol­o­gize for be­ing so stupid.

Why didn’t Robin­son di­rect this same hate to­ward Obama and Hil­lary when Chris Stevens, Sean Smith, Glen Do­herty and Ty­rone Woods were sac­ri­ficed in the Benghazi at­tack to save Obama’s re-elec­tion? Where was Robin­son’s blind out­rage when Brian Terry, a bor­der guard, was killed by a weapon sold to Mex­i­can drug deal­ers by the Obama ad­min­is­tra­tion’s Fast and Fu­ri­ous gun-run­ning scheme?

Any­body who would write such non­sense needs ma­jor ther­apy of some sort. Mark Levin, an Amer­i­can au­thor, lawyer and host of a syn­di­cated ra­dio show said this, and Robin­son is a re­li­able idiot.
