Obama’s Anti-American Pattern by Wendell

First there was Obama’s refusal to wear an American flag pin. Then we found out that he failed to salute the flag during at least one ceremony. There were the Che Guevara posters in his Houston campaign office. Later we find out that his wife had not been proud of America until her husband had a shot at the presidency. We’ve heard his former pastor proclaiming, “God d***n America!” along with Obama’s insistence that he had never heard such things from Wright in 20 years of attending his church. He has insulted the heartland and backbone of America by claiming that we are bitter and cling to our guns and religion because of that bitterness.

We who oppose Obama have long decried his comments and actions as being anti-American and we have been accused of being jingoistic and racist. While we see a pattern of socialist/communist leanings, the left, comes up with convenient, albeit weak excuses for him. Now it comes out that his recent Portland rally of over 75,000 people featured a local band called The Decemberists, who begin many of their concerts with the national anthem of the former Soviet Union.

Here are the lyrics of the anthem:
Unbreakable Union of freeborn republics
Great Russia has welded forever to stand.
Created in struggle by will of the people,
United and mighty, our Soviet land!

CHORUS : Sing to the Fatherland home of the free, Bulwark of peoples in brotherhood strong. O Party of Lenin, the strength of the people, To communism’s triumph lead us on!

Through tempests the sunrays of freedom have cheered us,
Along the new path where great Lenin did lead.
To a righteous cause he raised up the peoples,
Inspired them to labour and valourous deed.


In the victory of Communism's deathless ideal,
We see the future of our dear land.
And to her fluttering scarlet banner,
Selflessly true we always shall stand!

If the hiring of this band was the only incident, I would be willing to chalk it up to a lack of proper vetting; however, when you look at all of these, a worrisome pattern of hatred and disgust for our country emerges. Does Obama really think so highly of socialism and communism that he would allow such a band to perform at his rally, or is he too naïve to consider the actions and views of those who hires? Does he really care?

How can any reasonable person look at the evidence and come to any other conclusion? There is no explanation and no excuse for him.
