Posted on 10/05/2010 9:09:57 AM PDT by Kaslin
Why would folks rallying round the One Nation under Obama flag be expected to show respect, when their president has set the example for them to follow?
This past Saturday the One-Nation-under-Obama folks held a unifying rally on the national mall. Their paltry numbers told only a portion of the real story.
If one wanted a single sentence that described the whole miserable affair, it would be this:
One Nation under Obama Aint Got No Respect.
The lack of respect from the One-Nation folks was ubiquitous — from the minute they got bussed in to the minute they left. No respect for the goodness of the country which has succored them from birth and given them more opportunities than any other in the world. No respect for the sacrifices of those gone before them in battle to secure their liberties. No respect for the businesses and taxpayers who support them. No respect for the ground upon which they cast their mountain of litter. And certainly no respect for the rights of other Americans to disagree with them on the goodness of socialism.
From their manufactured signs to their drinking cups, these no-accounts dumped on America. From their stale, give-us-this and give-us-that demands, these people reminded me of a bunch of spoiled rotten teenagers, living in their fathers house, demanding a higher limit on their AmEx cards. It was enough to make any mature person wretch from the gut.
But, really, why would folks rallying round the One Nation under Obama flag be expected to show respect, when their president has set the example for them to follow?
President Obama himself is the quintessential disrespecter of all things American.
Democrats, once proud defenders of the First Amendments free-speech guarantee, have now become, under Obama, its fiercest critics. Barack Obama has used the presidency to single out, mock, and threaten with cut-offs to access, any and all media outlets who dare to hold his policies to even a modicum of honest scrutiny. Starting off his administration by telling Republicans they couldnt just listen to Rush Limbaugh and expect to get things done, Obama has stridently picked fights with conservative talk radio and Fox News as though the First Amendment did not apply to them. Last weekend, a One Nation under Obama protester copied the president by hoisting a sign, declaring Fox News is unconstitutional. Such a glaring disrespect for the rights of other Americans is purely revolting to any real lover of freedom.
In his State of the Union address before Congress, Obama became the first president to ever publicly deride sitting Supreme Court justices for their recent decision upholding the free-speech rights of American corporations. Such a mockery of Constitutional separation of powers is unprecedented and smacked of third-world dictators threatening to jail resistant judges.
Like an aging hippie, besotted with the fallacious notion that love makes the world go round, Obama has trashed our former presidents on foreign shores and extended his hand like a royal on self-indulgent steroids. Obama seems utterly oblivious to the fact that when he uses our presidency to mock and disdain former presidents, he demonstrates profound disrespect for the millions of American voters who elected those men and supported their policies. Worshiping at the trinity of me, myself and I, Obama shows no respect for anyone save himself and evidently sees nothing wrong with using the presidency as a pulpit for preaching the good news about his own marvelous deeds.
President Obama used American taxpayer money to write and send to the United Nations Human Rights Council a listing of our national sins, that he is working to make good. While he himself is a shining example of educational and electoral opportunities available only in America, he trashes our human rights record to literal oppressive regimes that openly terrorize their own populations.
Barack Obama so disrespects our U.S. Constitution that he apparently never even considered whether his health care mandate might run squarely afoul of it. As a consequence of the Obama, Pelosi, and Reid anti-constitutional arrogance, 22 states are now suing the federal government arguing against ObamaCare. The economy is worse off now than before Obamas stimulus. Yet the president thinks nothing of the millions of dollars that now must be put into lawsuits by 44% of the states, when it all could have been avoided if Obama, Pelosi, and Reid had shown a little respect for the U.S. Constitution and the voters known resistance before bribing and arm-twisting their way to the minimum vote. Such unbridled irreverence for the will of the American people is truly unprecedented.
On the matter of illegal immigration, Barack Obama has demonstrated the most ardent mockery of justice and disrespect for the rule of law. The Obama administration is now suing the state of Arizona for its desperate passage of a law intended to authorize local officials in the enforcement of federal immigration laws. Why was this action absolutely necessary for the citizens of Arizona? Because President Obama so disrespects the rule of law that he refuses to enforce those laws on the books with which he personally disagrees.
As the southern border with Mexico remains a porous piece of shoddy cloth, Arizona has become the ground zero of criminal violence perpetrated by those illegal aliens Obama wishes to protect. So Arizonans are left to fend for themselves. Obamas answer was to hold a joint press conference with the president of Mexico, in which both men denounced the racist Arizona law.
What a sham. The president might just as well have gone down to Arizona and spit in the faces of the American citizens whose lives and property are daily threatened by the unfettered breakers of federal law. Now the feds under Obama are suing Arizona on the premise that immigration law is a purely federal affair, even as the same feds refuse to go after sanctuary cities that declare themselves welcome mats for law-breakers. To most Americans, this is disrespect bordering on out-and-out hate.
On and on this list could go. From long before the election, one of the most evident aspects of the Barack Obama persona was his utter lack of respect for all things American. Whether it was refusing to put his hand over his heart during the national anthem on the campaign trail or his shunning of the flag lapel pin, Obama has made clear his disdain for our country. His whole European apology tour, which included bowing and scraping to foreign dictators and despots of every variety, is now the stuff of ignominious legend.
But his domestic governing shows more than anything else how much real goodness he finds in the rotten fruits of socialism and how sorry and ill-begotten he thinks the American dream of individual liberty really is.
So when One Nation under Obamas scanty numbers show up to bash America and trash the very ground upon which they walk, it should be no surprise whatsoever. They are merely following the example of their other-worldly leader.
What a disgusting lot of ingrates.

Dear President Obama,
My name is Harold Estes, approaching 95 on December 13 of this year. People meeting me for the first time don’t believe my age because I remain wrinkle free and pretty much mentally alert.
I enlisted in the U.S. Navy in 1934 and served proudly before, during and after WW II retiring as a Master Chief Bos’n Mate. Now I live in a “rest home” located on the western end of Pearl Harbor allowing me to keep alive the memories of 23 years of service to my country.
One of the benefits of my age, perhaps the only one, is to speak my mind, blunt and direct even to the head man.
So here goes.
I am amazed, angry and determined not to see my country die before I do but you seem hell bent not to grant me that wish.
I can’t figure out what country you are the president of. You fly around the world telling our friends and enemies despicable lies like:
“We’re no longer a Christian nation.”
“America is arrogant” - (Your wife even announced to the world,” America is mean-spirited.” Please tell her to try preaching that nonsense to 23 generations of our war dead buried all over the globe who died for no other reason than to free a whole lot of strangers from tyranny and hopelessness.)
I’d say shame on the both of you but I don’t think you like America nor do I see an ounce of gratefulness in anything you do for the obvious gifts this country has given you. To be without shame or gratefulness is a dangerous thing for a man sitting in the White House.
After 9/11 you said,” America hasn’t lived up to her ideals.”
Which ones did you mean? Was it the notion of personal liberty that 11,000 farmers and shopkeepers died for to win independence from the British ? Or maybe the ideal that no man should be a slave to another man that 500,000 men died for in the Civil War ? I hope you didn’t mean the ideal 470,000 fathers, brothers, husbands, and a lot of fellas I knew personally died for in WWII, because we felt real strongly about not letting any nation push us around because we stand for freedom.
I don’t think you mean the ideal that says equality is better than discrimination. You know the one that a whole lot of white people understood when they helped to get you elected.
Take a little advice from a very old geezer, young man. Shape up and start acting like an American. If you don’t, I’ll do what I can to see you get shipped out of that fancy rental on Pennsylvania Avenue .You were elected to lead not to bow, apologize and kiss the hands of murderers and corrupt leaders who still treat their people like slaves.
And just who do you think you are telling the American people not to jump to conclusions and condemn that Muslim major who killed 13 of his fellow soldiers and wounded dozens more. You mean you don’t want us to do what you did when that white cop used force to subdue that black college professor in Massachusetts who was putting up a fight? You don’t mind offending the police calling them stupid but you don’t want us to offend Muslim fanatics by calling them what they are, terrorists.
One more thing. I realize you never served in the military and never had to defend your country with your life but you’re the Commander-in-Chief now, son. Do your job. When your battle-hardened field General asks you for 40,000 more troops to complete the mission, give them to him. But if you’re not in this fight to win, then get out. The life of one American soldier is not worth the best political strategy you’re thinking of.
You could be our greatest president because you face the greatest challenge ever presented to any president. You’re not going to restore American greatness by bringing back our bloated economy. That’s not our greatest threat. Losing the heart and soul of who we are as Americans is our big fight now. And I sure as hell don’t want to think my president is the enemy in this final battle.

Excellent letter, thanks for posting
“As long as we have at least 40% of Americans that believe in socialism, communism we will never escape One-Nation-under-Obama.”
It’s only 30% http://www.arthurbrooks.net/
Nevertheless, this minority now controls the levers of power, so it is imperative that voters change that reality this November and in 2012.
One Nation is simply ACORN II.
The Master Chief "Boats" gives our Seaman Deuce President a major keelhauling.
It is a crying shame the the Whitehouse has so little understanding of the greatness that is "America".
It really hurts me to see so many people actually wanting communism. I mean, an actual physical pain in my head and in my heart. What these people don’t understand is under communism, the very thing they were doing that day (having a rally, questioning the government) is frowned upon. And what will these people do when that is made known to them? ‘I have rights!’ The very rights they seek to destroy. Go figure.
Undocumented persons have no respect for anything,see Obama.
Frowned upon? It is a sentence of death in Communist countries!
That’s what I meant. :)
What makes communism so appealing to these people, I’ll never know. What boggles my mind is how there has been, like the book you suggested, which is now on my to read list, actual first hand accounts of how this system does not work, and how we have not learned from these accounts.
I, too, fear for this Nation. While all former presidents have had their foibles, disgraces, controversy, and mistakes, I never felt as uneasy as I do right now. I feel we are about to be derailed at any moment. The communism thing is just one spoke in the big wheel of the undoing of everything that makes America the last free stand on Earth.
Obamanation will not try for a second term....he knows he can’t win and he is too much of a personal coward to accept a personal defeat. When he talks about America in negative words and defeatist sentences, he is not including himself... living in America doesn’t make one an American... Being an American is something within which cannot be countfeited, although he and others like him try... lies and evil intentions come through louder than any of his teleprompter written words..
60/40 odds? What on earth are you scared of? That's a show of under-confidence, if I ever saw one.
Buck up. You're on the winning side.
The rats are set to take an historic beating next month, due entirely to their leaders Hussein, Stretch and Reid. If things do not change, he will be unelectable in 2012. Unelectability is the one, the single unforgivable rat crime.
