Sixty-five years ago today, my uncle (my father's brother) jumped off a landing craft and waded ashore at Normandy Beach to begin the D Day invasion of France. He was in his 20s and must have been filled with so much fear and terror. I cannot imagine how he felt; his emotions; his feelings
Growing up the son of a veteran of World War 2, Korea, and Vietnam, I was schooled from a young age the importance of honoring those who picked up a weapon and fought to defend our country.
Today, Barack HUSSEIN Obama (aka Little Barry Soetoro, Oprah's Love Child, The Boy Wonder, BO, The Big ZERO, P Bo. The Cult Leader, The Current Temporary Resident of the White House) will visit the Normandy area of France to commemorate the Invasion.
I cannot express my disgust for his audacity to visit an honored place in our history with his visible hatred of the military. I have poised the question before. "How can he give orders to a military person when he never wore a uniform and stood a post in defense of the United States?"
I understand as the POTUS, he is expected by tradition to honor those who served our country. It is the right thing to do. It is the proper thing to do.
What I cannot accept is the fact that he says one thing and believes another. He will very eloquently deliver the words and phrases that make people believe he cares. He spoke during the election about his great uncle liberated concentration camps during World War 2.
It was later learned that the facts he gave as to his relative's involvement were inaccurate. In fact, his great-uncle states recently that Little Barry Soetoro was never interested in the his involvement until the election.
He further stated that The Boy Wonder's visit to Buchenwald was a political move. I could not agree more.
The lenghts to which BO will go to further his rock star status is unparallelled in modern history. The Big Zero is only interested in his own agenda. He is only interested in the revision of America in the model of his mother's socialist-Marxist beliefs.
So today, as true red-blooded Americans honor the efforts and sacrifices of those who landed at Normandy Beach, I will reflect on the veterans; their stories and exploits.
The actions of The Big Zero today will be seen by some as moral, truthful, and heartfelt. Others will view P Bo's performance as self serving. The readers of this forum know how I view it.
As in everything The Cult Leader does; it is for HIS benefit. It is not for the benefit of those he is sworn to serve or those who served long ago.
To cheapen the memory of my uncle and those who stormed the beaches of France and faced heavy Nazi gunfire on that day sixty-five years ago by giving The Current Temporary Resident of the White House any mileage from the exploits his wrong.
"The men of Normandy had faith that what they were doing was right, faith that they fought for all humanity, faith that a just God would grant them mercy on this beachhead or the next. It was the deep knowledge -- and pray to God we have not lost it -- that there is a profound moral difference between the use of force for liberation and the use of force for conquest." - Ronald Reagan
