When Pat Boone called Obama a “Marxist,” a “socialist,” and “a brilliant guy” during a Fox Business News interview on Wednesday night with Neil Cavuto, one felt almost sorry for the legendary singer whose “expert opinion” on the deficit fight and sequestration were often interrupted by Neil Cavuto. In the March 14, 2013, The Hollywood Reporter wrote that,
“Instead of fiscal wonkery, though, Boone reached back into the past several years of Tea Party rhetoric to accuse Obama of being a socialist, bent on destroying economic progress through policies advocated by Saul Alinsky.”
During the interview with Fox Business News, Pat Boone did not only get interrupted by Neil Cavuto but also by a display of Pat Boone’s lifetime accomplishments as a legendary singer.
Now why would any news station have the viewer focus on a legendary singer’s past instead of his words in the present? No matter what Pat Boone said about President Obama, the American singer, actor, and writer should have the right to be heard without visual or rude interruptions by anyone.
Pat Boone was born on June 1, 1934, and being a 78-year-old American legend, he should have the right to say about President Obama whatever he pleases. After all, it is his “right to free speech.”
And if Pat Boone wants to promote Saul Alinsky's book “Rules for Radicals” during his interview, he should also have the right to do that and not be cut short by a “I don’t want to go down that road” comment by Neil Cavuto.
Pat Boone called Saul Alinsky’s book President Obama’s “playbook” which he is following and says that "This is the guy that trained him to be a community organizer, a Marxist, a socialist, a progressive, who wrote the rules for doing what Mr. Obama is doing."
And in addition to President Obama following a “playbook” and someone else’s rules, Pat Boone calls most of the media "oblivious."
Well, the media is not oblivious to Pat Boone frequently being interrupted in an interview and no matter what names Pat Boone has for President Obama, Pat Boone, has the right to speak without being rudely interrupted (or even getting shot).
After all, even though Pat Boone might say that President Obama is a “Marxist,” this is a non-Marxist country.
