Muhammad Ali, ‘The Greatest,’ dies at 74

(CNN) – Muhammad Ali, the legendary boxer who proclaimed himself “The Greatest” and was among the most famous and beloved athletes on the planet, died Friday in Arizona, a family spokesman said. SOURCE

Muhammad Ali

The Greatest? Really?

Sing his praises if you must, if you feel him worthy of praise, as for myself I remember him as a DRAFT DODGER and a Muslim. I hated draft dodgers and I still hate Muslims.

My hatred of Ali has nothing to do with him being Black, and yes indeed, he was one hell of a boxer, but he became a Muslim and he refused to serve the United States, for those egregious acts, MANY in MY age group offer NO forgiveness. 

Maybe Muhammad Ali was a conscientious objector, maybe he was totally against the war in Vietnam, so was damned near everyone that went there, but Ali would have NEVER seen any kind of combat, he would have been a *show piece*, he would have put on an exhibition of his skills all over the world, the only thing is, he’d be getting Army pay for doing it.

Give yourself over to Islam if you so desire, that’s your choice, deny serving the United States the way Ali did and draw the ire of many Americans and Veterans.

    I agree! My Dad still refers to him as Casius Clay–refusing to “honor or acknowledge” the goat-f2$&er$! “Religion”!

    This is a pretty interesting interview. I wonder what he though of Obama?

    I was in high school when Ali came on the scene. We all thought he was over tho top then. You have to give him credit for promoting himself. He brought attention to the sport, that’s for sure. I loved watching him and Howard Cosel get into it. He got away with it. What else is there to say?

    Completely Agree Fred. He will always be Cassius Clay, a draft dodger, who wanted all the benefits of being an American but believes he owed nothing to the service of our country. I have never been able to support or care about him – very much as I feel about Hanoi Jane Fonda.
