Obama exhibits abysmal lack of historical awareness

Leftist ideology permeates Obama’s moral equivalency speech on apology tour

On his ill-timed Japanese apology tour —- just days before Memorial Day, honoring Americans who made the ultimate sacrifice to insure freedom —- Barack Obama stated, “our visit to Hiroshima will honor all those who were lost in World War II.”

All those”?

Would that also include the Japanese who engaged in the sneak attack of Pearl Harbor that resulted in 2,335 military personnel killed, including 2,008 Navy personnel, 109 Marines, and 218 Army. Added to this were 68 civilians, making the total 2403 people dead. 1,177 were from the USS Arizona. Wounded numbered 1,143 with 710 Navy, 69 Marines, and 364 Army, as well as 103 civilians. Japanese personnel losses numbered 55.

Is Obama counting the Nazi butchers who engaged in atrocities resulting in the systematic genocide of millions?

“We have known the agony of war. Let us now find the courage, together, to spread peace, and pursue a world without nuclear weapons,” says the same Obama who capitulated on allowing the corrupt madmen of Iran to proceed with nuclear enrichment in the deal worked out by his Secretary of State John Kerry, further destabilizing the volatile Middle East and ultimately our own national security as well as that of Europe. Additionally, the Mullahs have long threatened to wipe Israel off the face of the map. They are now ever closer to their doomsday goals.

Take time to read Ambassador John Bolton’s masterful commentary in the New York Post on this latest leg of Obama’s shameful apology tour.

    He hates America. He should never have been elected. Pox on teachers and liberals. He should have been impeached for several illegal offences but the Republicrats are part of the problem. He should not have been re-elected. A pox on Republican establishment.

    seven months, three weeks and two days that stain will be out of the whitehouse, Trump will need to tent the place and fumigate it just to get the stench of the America hater out.

    The Japanese had plans to execute every POW if the Americans landed on the Japanese mainland. Those plans disappeared after Nagasaki.

    “Today Barack Obama equated all the players in World War II – and ignored the atrocities of the Japanese military.

    The Imperial Japanese Military committed thousands of war crimes in World War II resulting in the death of millions of civilians and prisoners of war.

    This doesnt even take into account how many AMERICAN servicemen would have died had we had to continue the fight with conventional arms.

    Have the radio on and painfully listening to clips of BHO telling how terrible the bomb was. Guess that is why he gave it to Iran.

    republicans are every bit as responsible with the exception of Tom Cotton, the ONLY voice against it.

    Here is a brilliant website regarding the complete history of the USS Arizona (Battleship Number 39), complete with photographs and newspaper articles regarding the “largest ship in the Navy”. Constructed at the New York Navy Yard, the USS Arizona was launched in June of 1915.

    You can scroll down to the section that has to do with December 7. 1941 at Pearl Harbor/Hickam Field.

    Please note that onboard the USS Arizona on the date of her death were 36 sets of brothers; 29 sets of twins, and 4 sets of triplets.

    A visit to Pearl Harbor and the ferry ride out to the site of the USS Arizona Memorial cannot be adequately described in words.
    To this day, there are still droplets of crude oil rising to the surface of the water with regularity.

    After the attack on Pearl Harbor, Japan’s Navy Ministry released a photograph of the devastation, along with this inscription (translated into English):
    “Alas, the spectacle of the American battleship fleet in its Dying Gasp. The attack of our assault was extremely accurate and achieved direct hits with all bombs. The leading ship of the Oklahoma Class is already half sunk. The Maryland type and the Pennsylvania type are blown up from several direct hits. The ships crumble and their hulls are twisted and keeling over. Crude oil gushes forth fearfully. This view of the wretched enemy’s capital ships which were converted into a sea hell was photographed from directly overhead by the heroes of or calm, valorous force.”

    Never Forget that we continue to be the Land of the Free because of our brave US military members.

    As part of their religious observances in conjunction with the Islamic holy/holiday of Ramadan the Iranian Muslims who belong to this so-called “Religion of Peace” chant “Death to America” and “Death to Israel” while burning effigies of both nation’s leaders and flags. The Iranians refer to America and Americans as the “Great Satan,” yet Obama arms them with nukes. How do liberals square this lunacy with their own adherence to the Dimocrat Party and support for Obama? Don’t they care about the future of their own children and grandchildren? Does their bonding to liberalism take precedence over their own families?

    Ask that question of any liberals you know. When I’ve done so, I get blank stares and or smirks, as if it’s a trick question.

    From Breitbart:

    If You Don’t Want To Get Nuked Don’t Bomb Pearl Harbor

    President Obama has kowtowed to the Japanese and Western liberals by promising at the site of the Hiroshima nuclear bomb “we shall not repeat the evil.”
    People who agree with this sentiment ought to do two things.

    First they should read the essay – Thank God for the Atom Bomb –
    https://www.uio.no/studier/emner/hf/iakh/HIS1300MET/v12/undervisningsmateriale/Fussel%20-%20thank%20god%20for%20the%20atom%20bomb.pdf
    war historian Paul Fussell wrote on how he felt when, as a 21-year-old second lieutenant in the US army, he and his comrades heard the news that Japan had been nuclear bombed into surrender.

    “When we learned to our astonishment that we would not be obliged in a few months to rush up the beaches near Tokyo assault-firing while being machine-gunned, mortared, and shelled, for all the practiced phlegm of our tough facades we broke down and cried with relief and joy. We were going to live.”
