Celebrating terrorism on America's birthday

He claimed to be doing the work of his god by hacking to death innocent people. That's bad enough, but when some loony Liberal decided he was “misunderstood” and published a song proclaiming him a hero and on God's side, you'd think people would have shook their heads in disgust and simply ignored her. But no, this weekend thousands of meetings in churches, assembly halls, political meetings, etc. claiming to be for the cause of patriotism will sing this loony Liberals song praising the gory deed of a terrorist, either oblivious or uncaring that they are siding with the enemies of America -- those who kill the innocent.

The terrorists was eventually caught, tried and executed. His defender, though, is still treated as a “noteworthy” person and her endorsement of the slaughter of the innocent, ignored.

The terrorist? John Brown. The loony Liberal? Harriet Beacher Stowe. The song? Battle Hymn of the Republic.

Listen to the words next time you hear it, and remember it is praising John Brown's efforts in terrorizing innocent people.

On the night of May 24th, 1856, Brown banged on the door of James Doyle and ordered the men to come outside. Brown’s men attacked them with broadswords. They executed three of the Doyles, splitting open heads and cutting off arms. Brown watched as if in a trance. When they were done, he put a bullet into the head of James Doyle. Brown’s party visited two more cabins, dragged out and killed two more men -- five in all.

Is the cowardly act of murdering innocent men in front of their family something we want to celebrate? It's time we removed this shameful song from our nation, and admitted the evil that it endorses.

http://www.cyberhymnal.org/htm/b/h/bhymnotr.htm attributes The Battle Hymn of the Republic to Ju­lia W. Howe

It was written to the Tune of "John Brown’s Body" but the words have nothing to do with John Brown

I was writing fast and got the names mixed up. You're right about it being Julia Ward Howe instead of Harriet Beacher Stowe. I had the name in front of me, but somehow my mind swapped another famous three name female from that era.

The words are about John Brown the abolitionist. That was her intent. Howe was a very vocal defender of Brown, and wanted the song to express her the pride she thought everyone should have in his "work".
