The Peace of God to all that belong to the Light,
"We watched him grow from the brash self-confidence of youth"...., Really? I am wondering where H.Clinton and B.Clinton watched M.Ali From?
The TV Set of their house on Saturdays at night?
H.Clinton used Death of Muhammed Ali to attack Donald
B.Clinton & H.Clinton: "We watched him grow from the brash self-confidence of youth and success into a manhood full of religious and political
convictions that led him to make tough choices and live with the consequences," Bill and Hillary Clinton said in a joint statement on Ali's
The country is not yet fully recovered of the scandal triggered by the opportunistic tweeting of Donald Trump using the death of Muhammed Ali to gain
attention, and now we see how in the other side of the political spectrum two politicians that really have nothing to do with the Greatest American
Boxer and Athlete of the 1970s are trying to steal show in his funeral at any cost.
Why in the name of God B. Clinton must pronounce the eulogy to this great African American?
when M. Ali best moments , his great glories were
achieved primarily in the 1960s and 1970s and the only President alive of that time is James E. Carter?
If there is a President that must be honored to give the eulogy might be one under which those unforgettable sport achievements were
reached, and not a politician that was absolutely unknown at that time.
It should be understandable if any descendent of President Eisenhower who was in power when M.Ali won the Olympic Gold would be chosen to give such
eulogy, but a former President that ruled the country when Ali was already in retirement?
Muhammed Ali most challenging fight was not when he became first time world champion, or when he recovered the title, even not against Parkinson
disease, it was against a strongly segregated America, in which he was born. At his return of the 1960 Olympia, where he was gold medal, there were
still events in which he was not yet invited to eat together with white people.
Born Cassius Marcellus Clay, he changed his name the day after he won the world championship to Muhammed Ali, when he joined the Nation of Islam, a
movement that in 1960s protested against the existence of racial discrimination in a nation that claimed to have Christian Values. He was a model of
protest and also of excellence and elegance for his own People.
He inspired the character of Apollo Creed in the so famous film Rocky, as Sylvester Stallone remarked in the Oscar awards ceremony of 1977
Now, What few people remember is that Muhammad Ali had his own gift of prophecy. He predicted in 1971 that America was going to have in a times of
trouble, uncertainty and confusion, living moments of terrible national crisis, an African American suddenly elected President. He pointed that he
wouldn't like to be in the shoes of him.
Are you also disgusted with the political opportunism of the Clintons , transforming what must be a genuine act of respect to a great man
in to another show of campaign?
Possibly Muhammed ali would appreciate his eulogy given by a person that fought for civil rights and even was arrested for that cause and to oppose
Vietnam war, as he also did, in the time he was the great Glory of the sport, as Senator Bernie Sanders, or by the first African American President
Barack Obama or the still alive leader of the civil rights movement former Presidential candidate Jesse Jackson, even by the actor Sylvester
Stallone who brought to the movie industry all the drama and passion of the Box, that also offered to Ali an homage still in life, with so important
role of the character of Apollo Creed in the story of Rocky, or any of his still alive fellow Box colleagues, like Mike Tyson, but by a President
that never gave him any honor in the white house while he was in office?
Mike Tyson remembers and honors Muhammed Ali
The only time that Muhammad Ali met closely former President Bill Clinton was at the grand opening celebration for the Muhammad Ali Center in
Louisville, Ky., on Nov. 19, 2005.
Did He charged the usual so high fees he always receive from his speeches for the few words he pronounced in that occasion? possible No, but
certainly he got enough free attention from the media.
In Atlanta 1996 Olympic games inauguration ceremony M. Ali lightened the Flame, but he was chosen for that honor by the International Olympic
Committee, for his outstanding sport records, not by Bill Clinton, who saw him during the act distantly as all the other public present in the
( Muhammad Ali was invited and honored by the white house only on G.Ford, J.Carter, R.Reagan and G.W.Bush administrations)
M.Ali received at last the Liberty medal for his great contributions to the national and international sport and his commitment with
social causes only until 2012, during Obama administration, he was never acknowledged at all , for nothing , by the Clinton Administration, so what
kind of hypocrisy is this one that we are seeing in his death?
The only time in Which M. Ali expressed interests in politics was in 1984 R.Reagan Reelection campaign. In 1984, Ali announced his support for the
re-election of United States President Ronald Reagan. When asked to elaborate on his endorsement of Reagan, Ali told reporters, "He's keeping God in
schools and that's enough."
