During the last ten years, certain Tennessee volunteers formed Citizen Soldiers For The Atomic Bomb and faced off with our veterans' enemies at the plant entrance, joining faithful W.W. II veterans in Los Alamos and other nuclear installations who make a statement for our defenses. Part of our display includes a beautiful banner stating that the atomic bomb saved my life which is signed by hundreds of W.W. II soldiers, many of whom shed tears as they penned their names.
This year's counter-event to Y-12 peaceniks' "Hiroshima Remembrance Event" was a huge success despite the fact that the liberal press choose to ignore it. Misrepresenting news is what they tend to do best. Poor deceived viewers think CBS, ABC and the like are giving fair coverage. It's no wonder why we are in a political crisis in this county. Don't think that the passing motorist who honked and waved at our banners doesn't see the "smoke and mirrors" the press is pulling behind the scenes.
W.W.II veteran Kenneth Tilley was caring for his sick wife at home watching live news coverage which of course only carried the glory of the peacenik insult ceremony, as if they had the whole show to themselves.. Mr. Tilley knew of our resistance to these devils and drove over to see for himself. Not only is he a W.W. II veteran but was a Y12 Plant employee after the war. He said that he thought working at the plant was a very important job. Mr. Tilley, like most W.W.II veterans we have encountered, are outraged that this yearly event takes place in our country. In addition he had another outrage to endure during this "protest."
Part of the doings of the peacenik's religious ceremony is to tie amulets which they call "peace cranes" to the federal fence of the Y12 Plant. You can imagine paper-folding workshops where grown men and women gather to fold paper in the left-wing churches. There they can cluck to each other about the harm our country has done to loving peoples and how we should have been more tolerant instead of hateful and mean.
This year was no exception as dozens of pieces of paper once more decorated the federal fence. Part of citizen-soldiers ceremony was to remove these little darlings and put them into a sack where they can be operated on when we get home. When Veteran Tilley invited me to accompany him to clean up the fence, I said I was game and we proceeded. But no, here come the Oak Ridge City police and proceeded to stop the veteran! With that kind of stuff veterans are made of, he refused. The Oak Ridge City policeman made a move to arrest this good and patriotic veteran! Arrest him, I said! Would you arrest this man? What will become of the Oak Ridge City Police Department? Why were our enemies allowed to pin these amulets on the fence without incident, but when a United States citizen and veteran of World War II moved to take them down, he is the culprit! What would happen to us if we decided to pin gospel tracts or American flags on the fence and hold an old-fashioned tent revival there? Would we be arrested for trespassing on federal property? Would the Oak Ridge Police Department haul us to jail? What! This will not go away.
Dare we repeat what one W.W.II veteran said of the Y12 shenanigans - "I appreciate you patriots coming out to support the W.W.II veterans and the dropping of the atomic bomb. I'd be out here but I can't take it, what do you think I would have done to Jane Fonda?" We know what he and thousands of Vietnam veterans would do to Jane Fonda and all Communists' sympathizers if they could get their hands on them! That being said, it has been worth it all to comfort our patriots and veterans. It's been worth it all to bear a reproach for Christ's sake.
Our enemies have done a nice job trying to insult our veterans and in many instances have succeeded. Some just pour themselves another drink and hope for death. After all, they are the caliber of men who stood for something and carrying a sign is not their cup of tea. Real men don't carry signs. As for some ladies who can, compatriots Stacy Griffin and Ruth Ann Wilson have borne the heat of these long days and with the God of our Fathers, little other help, though greatly appreciated, is not really needed. "One will chase a thousand and two, ten thousand..." And with a little help from the prophet Ezekiel, who condemned those that make his people sad that he didn't make sad.
As for the other side, these sore losers can't face the fact that God gave us victory and rightly so. In other words, they can't combat our KJV Bible doctrine. Who could refuse the thousand of prayers of just retribution for Pearl Harbor, the Bataan Death March, and Iwo Jima just to name a few? Not our God, the God of the New and Old Testament who is the same yesterday, today, and forever. The God who gave victory to His people in times past still lives today!
