The Medal of Freedom is presented to people who have made meritorious contributions to the national interests of the United States, inspired others with their actions; enriching and changing others lives for the better. Barack Obama’s list is filled with liberals, union organizers and those who will appeal to, and bring out the votes of, specific segments of the country.
Bob Dylan, a man who used music and protests to deride our Vietnam veterans and the war in which they valiantly fought was one of Barack Obama’s choices today for the nation’s top civilian honor. Obama called him a “cultural icon.” This honor comes within four days of the issuance of this Presidential Proclamation commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Vietnam War.
Calling Bob Dylan a “hero” the day after Memorial Day is an affront. Awarding him the nation’s top civilian honor is a disgrace. And if you needed any reminder, these actions reveal Barack Obama as a blatant phony.
