When the ceremony was over, I made my way through the arrays of marble crosses to the stage and to the man in the blue hat who had taken Obama’s hand.

His name, it turns out, is Irving Smolens, and he was only 19 when he took part in the Normandy landing. Afterward he spent much of his life as a buyer of women’s and children’s clothing in Massachusetts, leading a quiet, peaceful life with his family.

“What did you say to Obama?” I asked him.

“I thanked him for keeping us out of war,” said Smolens.

Texas GOP convention’s ‘Davy Crockett’ calls for war against ‘dictator’ Obama

The 2014 Texas Republican Convention takes place this weekend and things were off to an interesting start with this speaker, a Davy Crockett impersonator who called for the VIOLENT OVERTHROW of President Barack Obama and his administration.

Dressed in buckskins and carrying a raccoon skin he called “Buster,” the Crockett impersonator took the stage, calling out, “Good morning Texans! Are you proud? Are you blessed to live in the state of Texas?”

“Crockett” went on to dispense such pearls of down-home wisdom as “Never be a member of a party whose name ends with the word ‘rat.’”

“We must protect the rule of law in this nation,” he said. “In the early 1800s at the Alamo, it ran red with the blood of the freedom fighters. In November of 2014, I want Texas to run red with the greatest candidates that has [sic] ever been seen by any state anywhere as we come and make Texas red again.”“Now, I’m a little disappointed,” he continued. “I came down from Tennessee to fight with the great republic of Texas against a narcisstic [sic], tyrannical dictator and here a hundred and seventy-six years later I have to come back and fight against a narcisstic [sic], tyrannical dictator again?”The crowd bellowed and applauded as he asked, “Who’s gonna help me do that?”
