One hundred fifty years ago today, President Lincoln marked the commemoration of the death of 50,000 soldiers from both the Confederates and the Union in the Battle of Gettysburg with his famous speech that set the tone for the freedom of the slaves and the long path to equality for black people. Lincoln, a Republican (contrary to an attempt by a University to identify him as Democrat), was the reformer who re-shaped our country and put it on a path to being a more just and righteous nation. The current president, as a bi-racial person, should owe at least some respect to the man who ultimately gave his life so that black people may enjoy the same freedoms as the rest of us now do.
Lincoln paved the way for a black man to eventually become president of the United States. Yet, President Obama is a “no show” at this landmark anniversary, which is a peculiar way of “honoring” your self-adopted mentor.
As the President’s wife Michele said in her victory speech after the election in 2008:
“Barack knows that we are going to have to make sacrifices; we are going to have to change our conversation; we’re going to have to change our traditions, our history; we’re going to have to move into a different place as a nation.”
It seems she and Barack are very serious about this.
The President’s “no show” at Gettysburg today would just bring too much attention to this battle and may inspire some patriotism for America and its founding principals, which are inherent in the very speech that President Lincoln made on that solemn day. Yet, based on what Michelle Obama stated, this is not something that the Bamster wishes to promote. We just cannot have any American pride in our historical achievements as that just does not fit in with the socialist agenda of this President. While America perpetrated injustices of great magnitude on the black slaves, it must also be noted that over 400,000 Union soldiers (most being white) gave their lives to free black men from slavery and our first black president spits in the face of these martyrs, insulting our nation by refusing to attend the memorial ceremony.
Some in the media suggest that Obama may be afraid of having his oratory compared to that of Lincoln. If he is afraid of that, he could at least attend and say just two words to the memory of Lincoln – “thank you”. He could have chosen to simply stand down and allow Lincoln’s speech to remain the one we remember.
We all know that Obama has no humility, no class and to be frank, perhaps his refusal to attend may be a blessing. At least we did not have to endure anymore of his sanctimonious drivel.
What does Obama stand for? Simple – serfs to the state. Obama wishes to enslave us under Government control with the biggest victims being those who make up his loyal African American base. These are at the top of his list for renewed serfdom. The final straw is Obama’s unwillingness to repeat the words “under G-d” in the Gettysburg speech when reciting the speech for the film being made by the venerable Ken Burns. Either Obama thinks he is God or he is a slave to different deity called Allah.
Many will criticize this piece as disrespectful to the office of the president. Many will also be thinking but are afraid to say, what I write. Samuel Adams said it how it was, so I shall too.
Respect is something that is earned and when our top elected leader disrespects the nation by lying, cheating and even snubbing our richest history, our traditions and our founding principals, then he does not deserve the respect of this nation. While I and many other conservatives have known that this man has deceived us from the very beginning, the average uninformed voters are finally waking up five years down the road. The Gettysburg snub reveals just how fully an ungrateful, arrogant scumbag this man really is!
There are just no other words to describe him.
