Barack Obama has insulted 38 million Poles with his crass and ignorant 'Polish death camp' remark
Telegraph ^ | Nile Gardiner

Posted on 05/30/2012 4:18:46 AM PDT by nuconvert

President Obama has a long track record of insulting the Poles. In 2010 he chose to play golf on the day of the funeral of the Polish President Lech Kaczynski, the Polish First Lady, and 94 senior officials who perished in the Smolensk air disaster.

Eight months earlier he humiliated Warsaw by pulling out of the agreement over Third Site missile defence installations in Poland and the Czech Republic.

And last night Barack Obama caused huge offence in Poland by referring to a Nazi death camp in Poland as “a Polish death camp” while awarding the Presidential Medal of Freedom to a Polish resistance fighter. As ABC’s Jake Tapper reported:

Poles and Polish-Americans expressed outrage today at President Obama’s reference earlier to “a Polish death camp” — as opposed to a Nazi death camp in German-occupied Poland.

“The White House will apologize for this outrageous error,” Foreign Minister Radek Sikorski tweeted. Sikorski said that Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk “will make a statement in the morning. It’s a pity that this important ceremony was upstaged by ignorance and incompetence.”

The Poles had a long history of standing up to the communists and then they played a key role in killing it.

I don't think Obama’s derision is an accident.

Even people of average intelligence must know that zero is muy stupido. What a horse’s ass. Blaming 20 something year old inexperienced and ignorant teleprompter stuffers/staffers is a sorry excuse.
I still say FUBO. And, now I say PORK.
Bring it on.

Poland is a good friend of America.

Obamao hates America, therefore, he hates America's friends, therefore, he hates Poland. Poland is also a Christian country. Obama hates Christianity ... etc.

If only the Poles were Muslims instead of Catholics, he'd be bowing and scraping all over the place.

Of course Obama disrespects the Poles. They are stridently anti-communist, and Obama is stridently communist.

“O” did not mis-speak.

I am certain that he has NO clear understanding of the world or of history (even modern history).

These kinds of gaffs pare a perpetual and very embarrassing reminder that he basically ‘mouths’ stuff when he speaks and his speech writers and handlers are as incredibly uninformed and poorly educated as he is himself.

Sorry to say, this is typical of whole generations of younger people who leave school with out the least concept of history or America's involvement in world events from the moment of our beginning as a nation to the present!

My first thoughts were that this gaffe was the fault of the person who wrote the information up for the teleprompter. But my thought was sarcasm. Now, I see the president's spokesmen really don't think it's odd that Obama was unclear as to who was in charge of the death camps, the victims (Poles and Jews predominately in Poland) or the Nazis. In Obama's mind, who is to say what's right and what's wrong, after all.

It's sad and pathetic when you're as ignorant as Obama is. Apparently, he didn't get much US and Western history taught to him in his formative years. Then, when he hit Hawaii after living much of his youth in Indonesia, he was on dope most of the time with his so-called choom (pot head) gang of buddies. He went to college, we are told, but we cannot see his grades. We know that most Universities are less interested in a coherent, organized, truthful view of history than in making sure the student accept the Manichean worldview that pits the haves against the have nots and with the illiberal Liberal academics to play the role of the vanguard of the poor. Knowledge plays no real role in the type of education Obama had; it was the duty of the writer of the teleprompter to keep Obama from saying something egregiously wrong. That writer failed. Being the smartest man ever elected president, as Liberal Presidential historian Michael Beschloss assured the world, means it cannot be that Obama is too stupid to know who inflicted the injustices in Poland, how many states the US has, how to pronounce the word "corp" for corp man, or that the US doesn't owe the whole world an apology. It's not his fault he's stupid.

At the same ceremony:

Obama awards Medal of Freedom to avowed socialist

President Obama awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom on Tuesday to Dolores Huerta, an 82-year-old labor activist and co-founder of the United Farm Workers union.

Huerta is also an honorary chair of the Democratic Socialists of America.

DSA describes itself as “the largest socialist organization in the United States, and the principal U.S. affiliate of the Socialist International.”

Huerta has claimed, “Republicans hate Latinos,” and has spoken fondly of Hugo Chavez’s despotic regime in Venezuela.

Reagan freed Poland. They have a stature in Poland to honor him.

And Zero insults Poland. There will be no stature in Poland for Zero.

Everything nobama does is intentional. nobama insults Poland on the same day he gives the Medal of Freedom to the head of the democratic socialists of America. Everything nobama does is intentional.

You’re correct, it was no accident. 0 did this on purpose because the Poles are a strong, courageous people who have a history of opposing 0’s type of ideology, and 0 hates anything contrary to what he stands for/believes. May 0 eventually suffer like the occupants of the death camps suffered.

Obama's gaffe is surprising. After all, he once said that he had an uncle who took part in the liberation of Auschwitz.

Of course Obama disrespects the Poles. They are stridently anti-communist, and Obama is stridently communist.

Don't forget the Poles are predominantly white and non-Muslim. (Although this set of qualifications for disprespect would include his pals Putin and Medvedev, he considers the Russians to be at least useful tools until his buddies in Iran can get that nuke thing finished.)

Yes, the Poles are the “conservatives” among europe.

The ones who remember being mugged by fascism and then communism and strive to escape collectivism, not embrace it.

No wonder obama has little time, use, or respect for them

Look, IMHO, Obama runs in the same crowd as Hitler, Mussolini, Stalin, Castro, Chavez, so.....his remarks about Poland Death Camps should not be unexpected!!! But....even worse, Obama knows virtually nothing about American history. What a guy, Americans have elected as their leader. Sad!!! Sad....for America!!!

Obama's lucky - the American press will give him a pass.

Then again, if Obama was spitting on small young children for fun and sport they would give him a pass...

Maybe Zero hates the Poles because they destroyed the Ottoman muslim army outside the gates of Vienna and stopped Lenin’s Red Army from spreading their revolution to the rest of Europe.

“The White House will apologize for this outrageous error,” Foreign Minister Radek Sikorski tweeted.

That's just what it was, an "outrageous error". It was not an intentional slander upon Poland or its people. We have plenty of things to call him on; this one is minor. Unless you're a Pole, of course!

(Obama Nazi death camp gaffe...) Once again Obama regrets as his real self slips through the cracks.....it is very hard for this anti-American, anti-capitalist, bitter half negro to find his footing...he does not like the Hebrew race for starters....but the MSM etc. will let him off the hook to slip and fall again another day....

America is not a good friend to Poland, we betrayed her at Yalta, and our State Department is trying to force Poland to cater to the Sodomites.
