Rashard Mendenhall Makes Some Controversial bin Laden Tweets
I found this on one of my favorites sites, profootballtalk.com ( http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/), where Pittsburgh Steelers running back Rashard Mendenhall made some sympathetic, and flat out inaccurate tweets, regarding the death of Osama bin Laden. View more, below.
Rashard Mendenhall #34 of the Pittsburgh Steelers celebrates after running for an eight yard touchdown against the Green Bay Packers in the third quarter during Super Bowl XLV at Cowboys Stadium on February 6, 2011 in Arlington, Texas.
If you view Mendenhall’s Twitter page (link is below) you’ll see where Mendenhall made such tweets as:
“What kind of person celebrates death?” Mendenhall says. “It’s amazing how people can HATE a man they have never even heard speak. We’ve only heard one side! ”
Ok, wait a second here. That’s not accurate.
Osama bin Laden has admitted to being the mastermind of the 9-11 attacks. He’s on record as bragging about it.
The man was at least partially responsible for the deaths of thousands of people, Rashard.
bin Laden is also on record saying it was ok to kill innocent American civilians;
“The ruling to kill the Americans and their allies—civilians and military—is an individual duty for every Muslim who can do it in any country in which it is possible to do it, in order to liberate the al-Aqsa Mosque and the holy mosque from their grip, and in order for their armies to move out of all the lands of Islam, defeated and unable to threaten any Muslim.’
Those were the words of a murderer, Rashard!
I may be sorry for the circumstances that led up to bin Laden’s killing, because lives were lost, and those lives were mommies, daddies, sons, daughters, brothers, sisters, and friends, that can never be replaced, and other lives will forever be affected because of it…but as for his death…I don’t need to have met him, Rashard. I’m glad he’s gone!
Yes, I’m celebrating!
How about another tweet from Mendenhall;
Do you practice being wrong, Rashard, or does it just come naturally to you?
I mean, what’s with the conspiracy theory?
This is a free country, and Rashard Mendenhall, and everybody else have the right to say what’s on their mind, thanks to the wonderful heroes that preserved that right for us, by fighting for the country. But, I also have the right to respond, and I say that Mendenhall is a fountain of misinformation!
