So Rudy Giuliani is catching flack for questioning Obama's love of his country? Let us not merely pose the question, let us also answer it.
Barack America hates America.
His hatred for America is surpassed only by his hatred for Americans. America can be "fundamentally transformed" like Silly Putty in the hands of a child but he knows the bitter clingers will remain resolute in their thoughts and deeds. They need constant monitoring from NSA, IRS, DHS, FBI and DOJ.
I don't care how many years Barack Obama spent in a nominally Christian church, he despises all things Christian.
Barack Obama is not wild about Western Civilization except when it leads to has-been super powers as in Western Europe. Yes, he loves countries who promote economic underachievement and who provide a Welcome mat for terrorists. But the Western Civilization that feeds the world and who dominates technological innovation and who has the capacity and know how to energize the world and who stands up for what is right? Not so much.
Barack Obama has surrounded himself with America-bashers including his own wife. In the six years this blog has been active, we have rarely mentioned the first lady except for her lavish vacations and expensive tastes. Rest assured her "For the first time in my adult life, I am proud of my country" will live on just as long as Marie Antoinette's "Let them eat cake." Maybe longer because the latter quote is disputed but the former will live on as long as there is Youtube.
Are we also going to hear that Valerie Jarrett loves America or Jeremiah Wright or Eric Holder or Bill Ayers or Bernadine Dohrn? You make the case. I can't do so.
I am certain there are elements of America this president loves. He likes basketball and hip hop artists, if not hip hop. He likes corporate donors and mindless celebrities and brain dead apologists and fawning journalists and Youtubers who sing their praises to "The One" and he loves anyone who can be used a political pawn. But does he love the larger America, the larger America we regard as Exceptional?
