Mr. Obama has once again shown his utter disdain for Conservatives. Before getting into office he said in a speech that we weren’t a red country, we weren’t a blue country, we were a purple country. However, he seems to have become color blind to all but his own Party’s color.
Leading up to First Lady Nancy Reagan’s funeral, I recently made a comment on Facebook that President Obama only seemed to want to go to “thugs’” funerals. He has blown off some of the most beloved people in society and some of the most important figures in history. Why? Because they don’t fit his narrative, they don’t give him a Chris Matthews “tingle.”
In response to my comment, the question placed to me was… what other president has attended a First Lady’s funeral? Is that really the test? What other president has “honored” thugs with representation at their funerals? NONE!
Let’s break it down a bit.
Obama has attended the funerals of: Clementa Pinckney – State Senator, Beau Biden, Nelson Mandela, Tom Foley – former Speaker, Daniel Inouye – Senator, Robert Byrd – Senator / KKK club founder, Dorothy Height – Civil rights icon, Walter Cronkite – broadcaster, and Ted Kennedy – Senator/Murderer.
He sent Mr. Biden to attend these funerals: Antonin Scalia, Louis Stokes – member of the House, Clementa Pinckney – State Senator (with Mr. Obama), Rafael Ramos – NYC police officer, Ariel Sharon – Prime Minister of Israel, Daniel Inouye – Senator (also with Mr. Obama), Sargent Shriver – first director of the Peace Corps, and Robert Byrd – Senator / KKK club founder (also with Mr. Obama).
President Obama sent a “representative” to these funerals: Kim Young-sam – President of South Korea, Freddie Grey – died in police custody, Lee Kuan Yew – Prime Minister in Singapore, Richard von Weizsacker – President of Germany, Michael Chilufya Sata – President of Zambia, Michael Brown – killed while committing a crime, Eduard Shevardnadze – President of Georgia, Maya Angelou – poet and author, Maj. Gen. Harold Greene, Adolfo Suarez Gonzalez – President of Spain, Margaret Thatcher – Former Prime Minister England, John Evans Atta Mills – President of Ghana, and Nancy Reagan – first lady.
And, no love (or representation) for Chris Kyle, Special Forces sniper and American Hero…
Does this not speak volumes for this President’s character? Golfing after the Foley beheading. He couldn’t even wait a few hours. Really? Restart of the Iraq War. Out golfing after the announcement. It seems like its golf, golf, golf, family, golf, golf, country, and golf… in that order and frequency.
But let’s stay on topic… the President’s character!
Our President has simply sent “representatives” to Presidents and Prime Ministers of countries who are supposedly our allies. And he has seen fit to send “representatives” to criminals’ funerals. Pause here and let that sink in… presidential representation at the funerals of thugs and criminals! Doesn’t sending “representatives” to Nancy Reagan and Justice Scalia’s funeral put them on the same footing as the thugs and criminals? And why did he miss those two very recent and historic funerals? Was he busy going to a weapons summit? A green energy summit? Nope. A golf game and a music/film/new media festival/conference. Sure, he cares!
Pay close attention to the funerals he did attend. Almost all shared the same ideology as him. So much for a “purple” country!
The one that stands out the most is Robert Byrd’s funeral. What a peach of a guy! The KING of pork-barrel spending, who created a new chapter for the KKK by recruiting 150 men. He filibustered against the 1964 Civil Rights Act and made this gem of a statement earlier in his career, quote:
“I shall never fight in the armed forces with a negro by my side … Rather I should die a thousand times, and see Old Glory trampled in the dirt never to rise again, than to see this beloved land of ours become degraded by race mongrels, a throwback to the blackest specimen from the wilds.”
— Robert C. Byrd, in a letter to Sen. Theodore Bilbo (D-MS), 1944
Like I said, a peach of a guy! This is who he holds in high esteem?
Then there’s Ted Kennedy, who left a woman to die after his car plunged into a river in Massachusetts, and didn’t bother to call police until the next day after the alcohol was out of his system. Yup! Another one to hold in high esteem.
Mr. Obama sat with illegal aliens and discussed their issues during the sequester fight a few years back while gating the Veterans Memorial, knowing full-well that vets had flown in from all across the country to be there. He said there was no money, but there was plenty of money to protect him while in the tent with Washington, Capital, and Secret Service in attendance.
I used to give him the benefit of the doubt. I’m done with that. Actions speak louder than words. The actions of this man show his disdain and hatred, not just for Conservative, but for the basic foundations of this wonderful country.
It’s too bad that the first African American president will be remembered in such a negative way… at least, that is, until The Left rewrites history as time goes on.
Stay vigilant America, wake up!
