I’m with you. I think what always made conservatives better than liberals was that we wouldn’t lower ourselves to the depths of depravity that liberals will. We’re better than they are and that comes with the ability to forgive even where it isn’t to be expected. That’s what makes us better people.
Goodbye to the Father of Gotcha Journalism. I do of course have sympathies for the family. No one ever wants to lose their Dad, etc.
I remember they used to say
You know it’s going to be a bad day when...
You go to work and see Mike Wallace sitting in your office.
All this “playing nicey nice” proved that we were thoroughly decent. Playing the hate game has resulted in us losing the high ground and has not benefited us in any way.
Let me begin with my deepest condolences to Mike Wallace’s family and friends. It is always difficult to say good-bye to the ones you love and cherish.
I pray that God will forgive Mike Wallace for all his digressions in life and reward him all the good he did. Every man will be judged in the end.
I pray that one day I will one day forgive Mike Wallace and CBS for that particular 60 Minutes segment. To date I have not. That is my sin that I am willing to live with.
Ayn Rand beat him up pretty good in that one.
Buh-bye atheist :
I do not think people become good simply because they die. I did express my condolences for his family, but he believed the socialist worldview and spread it into the minds of millions. EVERYONE EVERYONE EVERYONE watched 60 Minutes back in the day. He was far more influential than any president.
He did great harm to this country. The enemy today of conservative Constitutional principles is our liberal media. Who got us started? Wallace et al.
It’s ok to be truthful about the bad things he did. Very few on this thread are like DU. And since Wallace said he would let troops die to get great footage, if any of the military Freepers feel the need to sound off on that evil, I understand them.
If a guy dies who once said he’d rape and rob your daughter if he could, you’d not be praising him upon his demise.
I think I’ll leave it to God to judge the man’s life, and offer my sympathy to his family during this trying time.
Correction- it was one of those PBS round tables that I loved to watch when I was in school. It was not 60 minutes. My bad.
Thank you for your posts.
Um... There is evil in this world and it is ok to hate evil. No, I’m not talking about Wallace here, but you say it’s not appropriate to spit on ANYONE’S grave. If hitler had a grave, there isn’t anything disgusting enough in my body to lay upon it. He killed a lot of my family, tortured them for months first. Some things trump etiquette.
That makes two 60 minutes commentators past 90 who died in last 6 months.
Oldest guy still on the show now is Morley Safer - age 80.
RIP Mike Wallace
What does that even mean?
Good riddance, Comrade Wallace. Piss on his grave and all of those like him. TOO DAMN MANY LEFT.
As a Catholic, it would be my sincere wish that everybody, no matter how evil they were throughout their lives, repented sometime before they took their last breath.
Even a "Lord Have Mercy" between squeezing the trigger and the bullet hitting the brain.
Realistically, I don't believe that most do. But the knowledge of who does and who doesn't is between them and God, not me and God.
Therefore, I cannot say, with certainty, exactly who is in hell and who isn't. That there are people in hell is a certainty. The names and (former) addresses of the residents are not a matter of public knowledge, though.
If I knew, for a certainty, that a specific person was in hell, I would have no problem spitting on his grave. But since I can't say for 100% certainty that a person is, in fact, in hell, I'll hold off on the spit until I get to heaven and have that 100% knowledge.
Where Judas is headfirst up to his waist in Lucifer's mouth, being chewed on; a lively interpretation of Matthew 26:24.
But Happy Easter.
I used to watch Biography when I was a little boy way back in the 60’s. I remember really enjoying Mike Wallace’s narration and was fascinated learning about the lives of historic people who lived before I was born.I loved the show, it was more respectful and admiring of great achievers. Now, Biography is mostly a celebration of Hollywood garbage.
