Saw some of the new Muhammad Ali movie….and this is a direct quote from the script. I have no idea if Muhammad Ali ever said exactly this, but judging from what I’ve heard him say when confronted by reporters recently at the so-called Ground Zero of the former WTC, I wouldn’t be surprised. The man seems to have a way with words.
Check this out. This is obviously in relation to the Vietnam War, which he wanted nothing to do with.
“I ain’t burning no flag, and I ain’t running to Canada. I’m staying right here.
You wanna send me to jail? Fine, you go right ahead. I’ve been in jail for 400 years, I can be there for 4 or 5 more…but I ain’t going no 10,000 miles to help murder and kill other poor people! If I wanna die, I’ll die right here, right now…fighting you – if I wanna die. You my enemy, not no Chinese, no Viet-cong, no Japanese. You my opposer, when I want freedom. You my opposer when I want justice. You my opposer when I want equality. Want me to go somewhere and fight for you? You won’t even stand up for me, right here in America, for my rights and my religious beliefs. You won’t even stand up for me right here at home!”
In case you’re wondering what he said at the WTC, here it is; when asked how he felt about the terrorists belonging to his chosen (Islamic) Faith, he replied with “How do you feel about Hitler sharing your’s ?”
Yup. Whoever was aiming for this guy’s head seems to have totally missed 😉
