Posted on 12/07/2011 10:02:54 AM PST by Sopater
The elite Washington, D.C., school where President Barack Obama's daughters are students is offering a surprising lunch menu on Pearl Harbor Day.
The Washington Post revealed the lunch menu at the Sidwell Friends private school for Dec. 7 -- the date Japan attacked US forces at Pearl Harbor in 1941 -- includes teriyaki chicken and edamame alongside tofu and "oriental noodle salad."
The menu is printed on a school calendar, which notes that Wednesday is Pearl Harbor Day.

Are you effing serious?
effing anti America, celebrating the sneak attack.
Words fail me.
Do they take all the kids out to one of those Hibachi grills where they typically set the food on fire at the table on the anniversary of when we dropped the bomb on Nagasaki?
So this is what counts as an education when you’re spending $40K/year per kid.
a metaphorical, Obama-style ‘bow’ to the Japanese
I’m sure the kids enjoyed the shish-kebab, hummus and baba ghanoush that was served on September 11th.
Perhaps the Sidwell Friends private school will have their Christmas meal served with only halal food.
To be charitable, we could look at it another way -
We conquered them and ate their lunch!
Somebody check the class history book...to make sure they’re not teaching that the Japanese won.
Sorry but this type of story makes conservatives look like crack pots. I can’t believe Fox News even posted this as news.
Not a day goes by that the 0bama administration isn’t involved in something that irritates me.
Think like a liberal. They’re on a mission. It’s about reconciliation and reaching out to one’s enemies. I’m sure today’s menu is no problem at all for the school administrators, or for the family at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. Good taste and appropriate presidential behavior really don’t enter in. The memories, the loss, and the feelings of the folks at home aren’t a factor.
Each of those dishes are Chinese as well. The Chinese weren’t really happy with the Japanese in WWII either. My daughter eats Teriaki Chicken at our local take out. Tofu and edamame are standard Oriental foods. Watch Kimchi Chronicles or Simply Ming on PBS. Those foods are not simply Japanese.
If they had served Sushi and Yakisoba it would have been Japanese.
That being said, bad PR move. Most people don’t know the difference in Oriental food.
Caterer says it was just coincidence that that menu fell on that day.
They should just serve this on Hitler's Birthday, then.
Sounds like it was Barry’s idea. Another “in-your-face America” moment. I also got to thinking, barry is going to Hawaii in a few days. Why couldn’t he have gone a little early to recognize the 70th anniversary of Pearl Harbor by laying a wreath at the U.S.S. Arizona or something. It’s a rhetorical question, of course.
The chef said something like the menu schedule was prepared days in advance and had no idea the meals crossed the 7 December date.
And the NEWS stations are supposed to report the TRUTH.
Now my question on how he raises his girls is answered for me.
Not even surprised. In my travels I have bumped into people that hate everything American. And it’s more and more people. It’s just sad, pathetic, and destructive.
These people have no concept of the “Self Fulfilling Prophecy”.
At the beginning of the century far more than half of Americans had to deal with poverty, hunger, devastating illness and hard work. And at every moment of their lives they loved America and the dream that it encompassed.
Now .. Oh hell, You all know what I’m talking about.
That menu has already been slated for the September 11 meal.
Really, people getting bent out of shape over what some 4th graders are having for lunch? Do you think Obama called the school and requested Japanese food (there’s also Chinese being served btw) for December 7th?
Very well said.
Allie Allie OckBama!
LOL. You just filed it!
One more”ub tyour face” from the Marxists!
I suppose they would think nothing of serving raw fish but they are against the Amish for using raw milk for 400 years.
Wow, we are being governed by one sick b@$t@rd.
The America-haters at work...day & night!
Frankly, it has entirely too much highly dangerous wheat gluten ~ and I bet they cooked the fish part ~ which simply ruins things.
I kicked a Toyota today in a parking lot.
Did not leave a mark, but I did it for my Uncle.
I have forgiven, but the japs owe my family, one full uncle, the leg of another uncle, the eye of a third uncle, and the mental state of a couple more.
When I get that package in the mail, I will forget.
Holy [ epithet of choice]!
There may be children of Japanese diplomats at that school. What must they think? This is like singing “for he’s a jolly good fellow” for Mohammed atta on 9/11.
And we are surprised at this?
The only issue not confirmed (but most likely) is that the anti-American FLATUS (sic), code-name BigFoot, conferred with her imams, “Rev” Wright and BillyGoatLover Ayers, and then ORDERED THE JAPANESE MEALS FOR THIS DAY.
It should be clear by now, we’re surrounded by betrayers, and traitors in the U.S. The government has been subverted and undermined by globalist, open borders Communist.
Press 2 for English.
Divide the once united.
They’ve done a great job!
There, made the name more accurate...
Read it and weep:
They should have sauteed jelly fish, herring roe, whale sashimi and squid jerkey on the menu if they want authentic Japanese food.
This reminds me of Bush, celebrating Cinco De Mayo up in the White House, while the country was being over run with millions who routinely disrespect our rules, laws and our borders.
The Obama family serving up Japanese lunches on December 7th?
No, I doubt the Obamas called the school. I do think the school administrators are probably the same scum sucking, America hating, bottom feeding, socialist/communist POS as the Kenyan and his Wookie.
Imagine if they'd been serving dorayaki ~ now that'd been something (d'oro = gold piece, and yaki = cooked in skillet on stove or fried ~ not baked) ~ a regular transcultural phenom of ancient etiology.
Rice ~ that'd be the ticket ~ if they'd had Kokuho Rose from Koda Farms ~ flop some fresh minnows on top ~ pour on some sriracha sauce, you'd get something real close to what the hardier Marines at Camp Pendleton eat when they get cut loose to check out Vista.
Teriyaki is just chicken roasted/broiled/boiled/baked part way and finished up with a soyu/brown sugar concoction ~ some dissolved ginger, and maybe a hot spice or two ~ you take that and braise it on a grill for a few minutes until it flames.
Now that's some eats. I don't think the Japanese invented the chicken or soyu or brown sugar though.
Something almost peculiar to the Japanese when it comes to food is the very round little fish that are dried and tossed into the package with the rice senbei (crackers) ~ Otherwise that's all pretty common Asian fare, but the Japanese mix that fish in like a crackerjack prize!
Dec 7 American Lunch:
A Coke (or milkshake)
Slice of apple or cherry pie
