Obama Should Apologize To America Before Afghanistan
In 2008 Obama famously (albeit foolishly), said that he would (and I paraphrase) have those in the Middle East like us again. I guess he had visions of them shouting in unison “We accept [him] – one of us, one of us,” ala the 1932 movie “Freaks.” Well, he may be one of some of them, but Afghan students made an effigy of him complete with a rusty iron bar securely inserted in that part of the body most people sit on, with a sign attached to his back, that read “black dog Obama.” Which after the requisite time of shouting anti-U.S. epithets and protesting as only they can, the effigy was set afire. It would seem that his “home boyz” aren’t particularly pleased with him these days.
They were peeved because as they saw it, the Koran had been dissed when it was burned at a US-run military base in Jalalabad. Feeling their pain, Obama sent a personal of apology to Afghan President Hamid Karzai, stating: “I wish to express my deep regret for the reported incident, I extend to you and the Afghan people my sincere apologies.” The letter continued, “The error was inadvertent – I assure you that we will take the appropriate steps to avoid any recurrence, to include holding accountable those responsible.” Saying that the burning was done “out of ignorance.”
Ok, I’ll concede for the sake of argument that it was appropriate, albeit, I’m still waiting for Muslims to not just apologize for murdering Christians, but to renounce it and put an end to it. But I digress.
Obama made it a priority to show charity to Muslims, but my grandmom always said: “charity begins at home and then spreads abroad.” Specific to that point, I’m still waiting for Obama to apologize for not instructing Eric Holder to leave no stone unturned to hold accountable the New Black Panthers, who engaged in an act of voter intimidation so blatant, that even liberal lawyers decried their actions. I sent Obama letters in my official capacity as Chairman of Project 21, asking him to appoint a Special Prosecutor to investigate Holder’s office for the improper handling of the matter. Obama ignored my official requests, he ignored official requests from others, and as we know Holder with Obama’s approval gave the New Black Panthers carte blanche to continue their hateful behavior.
Obama saw nothing wrong with the aggressive acts of racial belligerence by jack-booted black thugs, but he could hardly contain his contempt for the Cambridge Police Department, as they acted in accordance for concern and safety of the a citizen.
Where is Obama’s apology to the people of Arizona and Alabama for forcing them to suffer under the escalating financial burden brought on by increasing numbers of illegal aliens? Doesn’t he view the increased financial burden, the increased violence, human trafficking and drugs as harmful to those residents? Why doesn’t he apologize to them for suing their states?
Where is Obama’s apology to Border Agent Brian Terry’s family and the America people for his murder as a result of Fast and Furious, the federal government’s illegal gunrunning scheme? How can Obama promise to hold accountable military personnel responsible for burning a book, but show no concern or compassion whatsoever for the murdered border agent or for the hundreds of Mexicans murdered due to the illegal scheme?
Where is Obama’s apology for ignoring our Constitutional rights, specifically by forcing us to participate in his socialist health scheme? Where is his apology to the Catholic Church for making them defend the tenets of their faith vis-a-vis abortion and birth control?
Where is Obama’s apology to the taxpayers who are footing the bill for him, and specifically for Michelle Obama who spends tens of millions of taxpayer dollars on lavish trips, extravagant vacations, $50,000 underwear shopping trips, and using the Presidential aircraft as her private jet at a cost of nearly $200,000 an hour? Doesn’t he think, it would be nice to apologize to us for her behavior since he is always attacking the rich? Or does he think her behaving like an empress is not synonymous with his calls for fairness? Of course another way to look at it is that she isn’t spending her money – she’s spending ours – I guess that comes under a different heading pursuant to redistribution?
Obama has a lot to apologize for including the lies and blaming of others in today’s energy speech. But he finds it more important to apologize to Muslims than the people who are responsible for his and his wife’s lifestyle, and to whom he pledged an oath to uphold their Constitution. Maybe he has other reasons for ignoring the citizens of the Untied States and bowing to the Muslims – who knows, since he takes extraordinary measures to keep his past secret.
