“A heck of a run undermining this great nation. I will never forgive this communist POS for stating in an open panel he would allow American soldiers to die to maintain his objectivity”
Well I imagine ole Mike’s trying to splain it to God today.
What religion do you “claim to be?”
Happy Easter, brother!
“and he was Hispanic”
Was he the good Hispanic or the White Hispanic...???
Otherwise, everyone here knows that the group known as “Hispanic” is a made up. Its origin can be traced historically all the way back to the 1960’s..???
:) Viva la Nixon!
He’s dead, Jim. Burn in hell Mike for what you did to our soldiers.
I doubt he’s splaining’ to God when he got detoured to the downtown area of the afterlife.
So? Big deal. Everyone dies. Some people contribute more to the world than others while here.
Until someone shows me evidence otherwise, Mike Wallace didn’t do much of the stuff for which I believe people should be remembered fondly.
My mother in law died Friday at 90. The list of people whose lives she touched in a genuinely positive way is almost endless. And she didn’t have to lie and destroy the lives of innocent people to do it.
AMF. Rot in hell.
Don’t care. Never watched his show. never watched him. Sorry for those that did love him, IE his son on Fox news, but, I personally... Don’t Care.
How ironic that a man of Jewish descent would make such a statement, as though "NEVER AGAIN," did not apply to the extermination of Serbs during World War II and therefore, their genocide was of no real significance. "
I thought he was Jewish.
He was. Scroll up. Father's name Wallik, Russian Jew.
He also did a great interview with Vladimir Horowitz.
Wallace was a scumbag.
“He’s dead, Jim!”
Don’t know why the other FReeper thought Wallace was Hispanic. He was born in Brookline, Massachusetts to Russian Jewish immigrant parents, Frank and Zina (Sharfman) Wallace. The family’s surname was originally Wallik.
