Who remembers Kate Smith?
Kate of the booming voice..who sang "God Bless America" as nobody else did.
Well, the PC police are calling a vendetta against her... No matter that she helped to raise $107 million in war bonds during WW2 (probably billions today). Never mind that she travelled 520,000 miles to entertain troops in war zones.
They are even removing her recording from their audio collection.
What was her big crime? It seems she sang a racially insensitive song ..way back in 1931.
Too bad Kate is not totally perfect and free from any hint of sin...as surely her critics must be !
