It turns out that the event ended up selling out after Levitt’s cowardly boycott, joined in by fellow Vancouver City Council Members, Larry J. Smith (Colonel, ret, US Army Ranger) and Anne McEnerny Ogle. Video of the General’s speech can be seen here.
General Boykin, ever the gentleman and appreciative of Leavitt’s avoiding the speech and possibly distracting him, thanked him and CAIR both very publicly on his facebook page this evening.
I couldn’t agree with the General more.
What he and Smith did was a direct slap in the face to a genuine War Hero and faithful servant of our country and God.
As for CAIR, when I see them offering up half as much as the General did over his adult life to oust or identify the extremists that continue hiding in their Mosques, I’ll consider giving a damn what they say.
And don’t bother telling me that the majority of Muslims are peaceful. I already know that and as Brigitte Gabriel said, “they’re irrelevant” until they decide to take a stand against those from within their religion.
