The American voter is not at all interested in someone arrogantly and condescendingly taking upon themselves the responsibility to apologize to the world – as a citizen of the world (whatever that is) – for the perceived mistakes and slights he believes America has made.
The European voter – not the European media; for they are as biased and ignorant as our media – knows that the freedom of Europe is due to Americans, period.
Obama can’t even acknowledge – in a speech about German-American relations, in which he mentions the Berlin Airlift that kept Berliners free – that it was an American project, run by Americans to keep Germans free, and that Americans died in that successful quest for freedom. Not only that, but we Americans did so only a very few years after defeating Germany at the cost of several hundred thousand American lives, as Germany tried to exterminate a people and conquer two continents.
So who, exactly, has something for which to apologize? And who most certainly does NOT?
Americans don’t believe they have anything to apologize for. That the liberal media do is one thing – but this is a Center-Right country, whether the liberal / socialist / Leftist media and activist judiciary like it or not. And history is not on the side of the socialists any more than it was when Khrushchev told JFK “we will bury you,” just before landing on the ash heap of history.
Nor does Obama’s fake Euro-citizen nonsense take even European reality into account. Berlin is dying even as Obama tells the world to “Look at Berlin!”
So concerned has Obama become with the opinions of “the world,” and the “global test” on which the radical wing of his party has come to rely (said radical wing seemingly including all but Joe Lieberman, the one remaining Democrat with any links to FDR, Truman and JFK), that Obama, his ignorant, spoiled wife and their media enablers all are blissfully unaware that people from all over the world love America and want to come here; as polls have shown, it is only the media around the world that dislikes America.
Earth to Journalists: Nobody cares about your opinions. Write the facts and let people who understand both history and how the world works write opinions.
Empirical proof of the global love for America is at our borders and in visa applications. No country in history has had so many giving so much to leave their homes to journey to another country. Never has happened; never will happen anywhere else.
This isn’t rocket science. If we were as bad as the Obamas and their media enablers think, this wouldn’t be the case now, would it? Heck, if it were as bad as Michelle keeps whining, she wouldn’t live here or raise her kids here, now, would she?
And, no, they are not coming here for the weather. They are coming here for the uniquely American experience – the opportunities provided by our culture, our melting pot – NOT multiculturalism. If immigrants to America thought their culture was better, they’d have stayed home. (Why Boomer Lefties can’t figure this out is one of those imponderables of history.)
Immigrants come to get away from the socialist cultures, stagnating socialist economies provided by their Leftist cultures, under-serving socialist healthcare, and power-hungry socialist governments gaining ground in Europe. And which Democrats want to implement in America.
If you are paying attention to the way in which the EU is being run, you will note that taking into account the will of the People is not even on the agenda. Like Democrats, the socialists in Europe do not care about the people; they only care about power. This is an old story in Europe.
If you look at the way Democrats handle lost elections – override the will of the people by finding one judge to invalidate millions of voters – you will begin to recognize that Democrats are not about democracy. As in Europe – Democrats are about socialist policies implemented from the top down. That is called TYRANNY.
That failed demi-continent has given the world Communism, Socialism, Fascism, Luddism, all failures of enormous magnitude. Europe’s insistence on tyranny – except in Britain, which once provided the liberties now so taken for granted across the West, but now is dying – has resulted in the two most destructive wars in history, and certainly is NOT something worthy of emulation here.
Obama spoke of the Wall in Berlin this week, praising the fact that it had come down. Here’s a thought for you:
The Berlin Wall separated a socialist world from a capitalist world. On which side is Obama? On which side is his party?
Obama and the Democrats are dyed-in-the-wool socialists. Rather than trying to convince Europeans that they are right, and Americans that we need to apologize for something, perhaps the Democrats could spend some time reading up on history, learning economics, reviewing the immigrations statistics of America and other countries.
Perhaps then they could stop convincing themselves that their worldview is correct when it is just plain wrong, that the implementation of their socialist worldview resulted in the killing of well over 100M people last Century by their own socialist governments. China: 80M executed in the Cultural Revolution. Germany: 12M executedin the Holocaust run by the National Socialist Workers Party, and another 30M killed in WW2. Russia: 30M executed by socialist Stalin in the Purges and the starving of Ukraine. Cambodia, 2M killed by Pol Pot’s socialist agenda.
And that perhaps, just perhaps, Democrats ought to stop trying to force down our throats policies that have failed everywhere they have been tried.
Obama has so immersed himself in the 60s counterculture of radical minorities, radical liberation theology, radical SDS-and Weathermen Underground falsehoods and misrepresentations of reality that he is completely ignorant not only of the history of America and the world, but of how it is perceived by people the world over who do not happened to be whiny American Baby Boomer Leftists.
And that is fine. It’s a free country.
But the rest of the world – not only Americans, but as he now is discovering, Europeans – don’t buy this ahistorical nonsense.
One hopes, of course, that Americans will be smart enough not to elect this historical illiterate to the Presidency at a time of change in the world. But with teacher unions and the media mis-educating the voter franchise, one can’t be sure.
