"Dragnet" Team Lectures President Obama - "Don't Try to Build a New Nation" - Video

Here is a great piece of video work in which the old "Dragnet" star Jack Webb, and his partner lecture - President Barack Obama - about the virtues of America. This video is built off of an original "Dragnet" episode.

It's a perfect parallel to the same kook philosophy of the 1960's that wanted to throw everything out about America as bad and "remake" the nation. Their advice to 1960's radicals then, is totally applicable today.

NOTE: At the end, Webb says, "Don't try to build a new country; make the old one work - it has for over 400 years."

Obviously the United States has not been around for 400 years, but I'm assuming he is going back to Columbus (over 400 years) or the Pilgrims coming to America (just under 400 years). Anyhow, this was great!

This video is shameful. An abuse of the First Amendment. This is no way to treat an American head of state.
