Never before has a major party candidate for president of the United States had a more contemptuous opinion of his own country....And who can forget Obama's mentor, William Ayers, an unrepentant terrorist and communist? On Aug. 27, 1968, he was booked by the Chicago Police Department, presumably for shenanigans related to the Democratic National Convention. Here's the mugshot:
...we have reached a watershed moment in American history: the number of Americans who no longer believe we are Ronald Reagan’s “shining city upon a hill” may have reached critical mass. For such enlightened “citizens of the world,” totalitarian, dissent-suppressing, child labor-exploiting China is a great place to set up corporate shop, and Russia’s historical track record of oppression and occupation is the same as America’s record of liberation and restoration.
This bankrupt philosophy of moral equivalency has long been a part of the political landscape. Yet for years, the Blame America crowd has wandered in a well-deserved wilderness of irrelevancy, with most Americans as contemptuous of them as they are of America itself.
No doubt some will see this assessment of Barack Obama as a critique of his patriotism. You bet your life it is. This is one American who takes serious exception to the far-left’s tiresome notion that China, Russia and the United States are “birds of a feather.” That such odious thinking finds a home in the warped enclaves of academia, an “unbiased” mainstream media, or the fevered swamps of “truther” conspiracy theorists, race hustling reparationists, open-borderists, and other assorted moonbats is bad enough.
