PC Police Wag Fingers at Patriotic Displays

Celebrate, wave an American flag and, God forbid, chant ďUSAĒ if you want. Let loose a few expletives on live TV. And revel in the fact that our law enforcement officers showed bravery that would have made our Minutemen forefathers proud.
The predictable PC police and political partisans are already moaning about the raw display of patriotic pride in the aftermath of the killing and capture of the two thugs who allegedly killed innocent kids and terrorized our city.
The usual liberal media are out in force to lecture us about cheering too loudly, or mocking people for singing ďWe are the Champions.Ē The American Civil Liberties Union, of course, wants to make sure the surviving terrorist gets his legal rights. Others are upset that David Ortiz uttered a swear word.
Too bad. These terrorists not only attacked Boston, they attacked our country. We wanted swift justice and vengeance, and thereís nothing wrong with celebrating the fact that our present day Minutemen ó police and federal law enforcement ó gave it to us.
Hours after a tense manhunt that paralyzed much of the Boston area had ended, I drove by swarms of students and others who took to the streets in a spontaneous show of support for the heroes who tracked down the suspects. Some were chanting ďLetís Go Boston,Ē while others appeared to be holding cups of beer. What an outrage.
After what the Boston area went through the past five days, thereís no shame in venting off some steam. No one will ever forget the victims of this horrible crime, and the crowds who gathered at the marathon finish line Friday night are testament to that. But itís not disrespectful of the victims to want to celebrate the end of this ordeal.
When I interviewed former New York City Mayor Rudy
Giuliani a few days ago, he said it was important for the people of Boston to know itís all right to get angry and want revenge. The quickest way for our city to heal, Giuliani said, was to catch or kill the terrorists.
He was right.
My 9-year-old daughter has not been sleeping the past few days and has had trouble understanding how someone could have wanted to hurt and maim children. She, like the rest of us, has been unable to escape the graphic details of this horrific
So excuse me if Iím not too upset about her and other kids hearing Big Papi say a bad word.
We have a right in Boston to celebrate what our city and nation is all about. And if Gov.
Deval Patrick wants to sit in the Red Sox dugout and take part in the celebration, thatís fine, too.
This is no time for partisan rants or finger-wagging about flag-waving. We should feel pride in our country, and especially, our city and state. And if you have a problem with that, then to quote Big Papi Ö.
