In the last century, the
impassioned words and actions of patriots like Winston Churchill –
along with America’s heroic help and sacrifice – saved Europe. The
eloquence and actions of “I’ve been to the mountaintop” Martin Luther
King Jr. brought America to an unprecedented level of social justice.
The peerless oratory and tireless diplomacy of the man who would become
Israel’s Foreign Minister, Abba Eban convinced the entire world that
after the wanton murder of six-million Jews in the Holocaust its
straggling survivors deserved their own state of Israel. The inspiring
words and decisive actions of President Ronald Reagan ended the Cold
War, tore down the Berlin Wall, and restored economic prosperity to
America. The efforts of these towering figures resulted in a more
highly-evolved world. We have also seen the opposite in totalitarian
leaders like Hitler, Mussolini, Fidel Castro, Pol Pot, Mao, and Saddam
Hussein, among others, who exploited their masses, destroyed their
economies, brought havoc, turbulence, grief and massive death within
and outside of their countries, and made the world a more dangerous and
threatening place.

The one thing all of these virtuous and evil men had
in common was love for their respective countries, in fact a burning
passion that superseded all else. The virtuous believed in freedom and
democracy. The evil believed in subjugation of their peoples and
lifetime tenures for themselves in order to actualize their goals of
conquering their eternal enemies – Americans and Jews. Today, we have a
new crop of inveterate America- and Jew-haters, among them the Marxist
leader of Venezuela Hugo Chavez, Nicaragua’s president Daniel Ortega,
Iran’s “death-to-America-and-Israel” study-in-abnormal-psychology
Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, and the ever-sabotage-America and anti-Semitic
“leaders” of the 22-Arab states that surround Israel.

 I have either
read about or observed firsthand all of these people. Yet in my decades
of commenting on the political scene, I cannot recall a single leader
of any country or regime who has ever spoken negatively of his country
or tolerated others speaking ill of the land or the people he
represented– Until now– Bizarre and, yes, repugnant as it is to our
essentially centrist country, America now has a president who has
broken that time-honored tradition. Barack Obama, on the campaign trail
and as the leader of the free world is the first U.S. president to
proclaim to anyone within earshot that he, like his wife, is not proud
of his country, and is all-too-willing to offer serial apologies – for
America! – to Americans and foreigners alike.

 As Ed Lasky writes: “We
know that during the campaign [Obama] warned that criticism of his wife
was `off-limits’. But criticism of America – well, that is fine.” We
also know that during his run for the presidency, Obama expressed
sneering condescension towards all those bible-clasping, gun-owning
yahoos who “cling” to those silly things, and that in Europe he
consistently gave voice to America’s supposed “sins.” But all that
pales in comparison to the clear contempt – looks more like hatred to
me – that Obama feels for the United States of America and for its most
revered founding document, the U.S. Constitution. In just the first
100-days of his tenure, Obama’s words and actions have demonstrated
that he is no friend of the country he leads. This is only a smattering
of what happened on his recent three-continent trip abroad and to

•In France, Obama told his audience that America “has
shown arrogance and been dismissive, even derisive” toward Europe.
•In Prague, Obama – in true utopian-kindergarten fashion – pledged
“with conviction” that America will “seek the peace and security of a
world without nuclear weapons.” In other words, destroy big bad
America’s ability to defend itself!
•In London, Obama made clear that the world’s financial wealth was no
longer made by those inferior leaders Roosevelt and Churchill,
effectively ceding America’s leading role in creating and sharing
wealth to nations that have never measured up to our country’s
bountiful generosity or spirit of free-market entrepreneurship.
•In Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago, Obama again sat passively while
the Marxist Ortega blamed the United States for a century of what he
called terroristic U.S. aggression in Central America, again emitting
not a whisper of defense on our country’s behalf.
•In Turkey, Obama said – incredibly and inaccurately – that America was not a Christian nation.
•And in his recent trip to Mexico, Obama said that the escalating border violence was essentially America’s fault.

Scan you memory. Can you think of any other leader in world history who
so consistently badmouths his own country, or fails to defend it? I
can’t. …  The President Who Hates His Country
