Skip to comments.Obama's Walesa Moment - A Snub Heard Round the World
Posted on 06/04/2012 4:48:59 AM PDT by Cincinatus' Wife
Last week, President Barack Obama rejected the world's most powerful living symbol of anti-communism, anti-Sovietism, and victory in the Cold War. The White House declined to have Lech Walesa stand in for the late Jan Karski, who posthumously received the Presidential Medal of Freedom. Our president spurned Walesa, first president of free Poland, who had once risked everything to courageously join Ronald Reagan and Pope John Paul II in keeping Solidarity alive in Poland. Like Reagan and John Paul II, Walesa knew that Solidarity could be the wedge to split the Communist Bloc from top to bottom, as it indeed did, thereby making possible elections in Poland in June 1989, the fall of the Berlin Wall in November 1989, the execution of Ceausescu on Christmas Day 1989, the liberation of Eastern Europe en masse, and peaceful victory in the Cold War.
Obama's snubbing of Walesa follows several peculiar actions that upset the people of Poland. On September 17, 2009, he canceled plans for a joint missile defense system between the United States and Poland, one of our most dependable post-Cold War NATO allies. Obama did so for pro-Russian reasons. His action on that particular date was stunning: It was precisely 70 years to the day, September 17, 1939, when Russia invaded Poland, in compliance with the sinister Hitler-Stalin Pact. Poles certainly noticed the irony.
Obama's snubbing of Walesa also follows his recent private assurance to Dmitri Medvedev and Vladimir Putin...

Our Kenyan is such a cretin. He has no place in decent human society....he should stick to the golf course, at least that is something he can do without bothering us.
The Kenyan excels at snubbing.
And by the way, my British friends, we’d consider it a favor if you guys could return the bust of Winston Churchill when the Kenyan gets booted from office in November.
Obozo isn’t worthy to pick up Lech Walesa’s dirty socks.
The guy hates everybody.
Pray for America
I hope that the Poles will judge America by the American people, not the intellectually challenged parasites who voted for Obama, but the rest of us, the productive ones who admire Poland and its great leaders such as Lech Walesa, and especially not based on some who is at the very least culturally a foreigner. Obama does not in any way speak for decent Americans, only for those who hate Israel, Poland, England, and other free countries, while missing the good old days with Mao, Stalin, Fidel Castro, and Ayatollah Khomeini.
He had to choose between Walesa and being “flexible” with the Russians.
It was an easy choice for the Marxist.
Any one who doesn’t want this hunk of crap out of the White House ASAP is one un-patriotic a-hole
0's mother was white.
i call 0 by what he is - a Moslem leftist.
And the Chinese leader was honored with a gala State dinner.
Lech Walesa was instrumental in the Polish rejection of Communism. Is it any wonder that Obama doesn’t want to meet with him? Also, Poland has been resisting Muslim immigration.
I literally pray that Romney, if elected, will undertake an apology tour of his own on behalf of America. That would up my view of him considerably, but everything aside, we as a country need to. Obama has done more damage to our friends than we will likely ever know about. And what we do know about is bad enough.
Central comity member shuns anti-communist.
Wouldn’t this literally be Hussein’s Sputnik moment?
Since Sputnik was the “In Yo’ FACE” moment of Communism/Socialism....
This sounds like someone we deal with every day..
WHO AM I
I was born in one country, raised in another. My father was born in another country. I was not his only child. He fathered several children with numerous women.
I became very close to my mother, as my father showed no interest in me.
Although my father deserted me and my mother raised me, I later wrote a book idolizing my father——not my mother.
Later in life, questions arose over my real name.
My birth records were sketchy.
No one was able to produce a legitimate, reliable birth certificate.
I grew up practicing one faith but converted to Christianity, as it was widely accepted in my new country, but I practiced non-traditional beliefs and didn’t follow Christianity, except in the public eye under scrutiny.
I worked and lived among lower-class people as a young adult, disguising myself as someone who really cared about them.
That was before I decided it was time to get serious about my life and embarked on a new career.
I wrote a book about my struggles growing up.
It was clear to those who read my memoirs, that I had difficulties accepting that my father abandoned me as a child.
I became active in local politics in my 30’s then, with help behind the scenes, I literally burst onto the scene as a candidate for national office in my 40’s.
They said I had a golden tongue and could talk anyone into anything.
I had a virtually non-existent resume, little work history, and no
experience in leading a single organization.
Yet I was a powerful speaker and citizens were drawn to me, as though I were a magnet and they were small roofing tacks.
I drew incredibly large crowds during my public appearances.
This bolstered my ego.
At first, my political campaign focused on my country’s foreign policy...
I was very critical of my country in the last war, and seized every
opportunity to bash my country.
But what launched my rise to national prominence were my views on the
I pretended to have a really good plan on how we could do better, and every poor person would be fed and housed for free.
I knew which group was responsible for getting us into this mess.
It was the free market, banks and corporations.
I decided to start making citizens hate them and, if they became envious of others who did well, the plan was clinched tight.
I called mine “A People’s Campaign.”
That sounded good to all people.
I was the surprise candidate because I emerged from outside the traditional path of politics and was able to gain widespread popular support.
I knew that, if I merely offered the people ‘hope’, together we could change our country and the world..
So, I started to make my speeches sound like they were on behalf of the downtrodden, poor, ignorant to include “persecuted minorities”.
My true views were not widely known and I kept them unknown, until> after I became my nation’s leader.
I had to carefully guard reality, as anybody could have easily found out what I really believed, if they had simply read my writings and examined those people I associated with. I’m glad they didn’t.
Then I became the most powerful man in the world.
And then the world learned the truth.
Who am I?
Funny deal here.
Chicago has the largest population of Polish in the U.S.,
You’d think he’d know better than to insult them as a block.
Not only that, but one little thing everybody forgets- he was interviewed by the NAACP Legal Department, and they didn’t want him. Here he is, Head of the Harvard Law Review, and the biggest poverty pimp, errr, “Civil Rights” organization in America, turned him down for employment. They must’ve saw something that nobody else did in 2008.
I hate the fact I wake up every morning knowing this P0S is our President...
Not knowing what embarassing or toxic thing he will do to grind our country down
I stopped watching to news because just seeing Obama is bad for my health...
That was my same thought. First, "Polish death camps" and now this. Does Obama want to lose Illinois?
Look on the bright side. Barky unintentionally spared Walesa the embarassment of having to spurn Barky to keep his own hands clean (like the Russians three years ago).
That candidate eval sheet would be a fascinating piece of paper, if it made its way into the hands of Julian Assange, don't you think?
Of course, he has troubles of his own and doesn't need to wake up sleeping with the fishes in Lake Huron.
Even more - we’d consider it an HONOR to have a bust of Winston Churchill once again remind us that Britain stands with us in the face of maniacal foes who seek to destroy the freedom we have.
In 2008 America was taken hostage to the lawless thuggery of a communist-Islamist alliance and ended up putting a foreign enemy combatant in our own White House - a maniacal foe who seeks to destroy the freedom we have, in keeping with his communist and Islamist puppet-masters who put him in power.
It was a mistake we will not repeat.
A lot of us have been praying for a Winston Churchill, Lech Walesa, or Ronald Reagan who could lead us out of the damage caused by Obama and all the corruption, crime, and lies that helped to put him in power.
What Obama snubbed is dearly precious to us and if Britain would be kind enough to give it back we would consider it a huge favor and be deeply honored to once again take our place with the leaders of the free world against the enemies of freedom.
Nationalist Socialist Workers Party BUMP
“You sure you wanna tell that joke in here?”
“Nope, I wouldn’t want to have to explain it 5 times.”
You are behind the times, Comrade. Patriotism is so passe. We are living in a one-world Utopia now, generously provided by our social engineering citizen-of-the-world expert leaders who suffer and sacrifice so much on our worthless behalf.
Democrats have no use for American Conservatives, our values or American traditions.
Zer0’s apology tour was to tell the world just that.
Poland has been resisting Muslim immigration.
....................................... From what I experienced there, looks like they resisted more than Muslims. The only foreigners I saw were Vietnamese at the flea market and Chinese restaurants. I guess after being free then occupied and boundaries relocated a couple of times, they only wish to be all Polish? Lots of churches in Poland, and they are active.
Gee, I guess we can't have that now, can we....an actual nation with one culture....the globalists won't stand for it.
Poland is also overwhelmingly Catholic—and we all know what Obama thinks of Catholics.
Do you think Barry hates Poland because of all the Poles in Chicago area? We know he hates the English because of his Kenya daddies views of the imperialist. Obama is a little man who holds long seeded resentments. He is the last person on earth who should be president.
Of course he spurned Walesa. Obooboo is a communist. Walesa fought to free Poland of communism.
What Obama snubbed is dearly precious to us and if Britain would be kind enough to give it back we would consider it a huge favor and be deeply honored to once again take our place with the leaders of the free world against the enemies of freedom.”””””
I would like the following ceremony:
Prince William and Kate come to official visit to Romney in the White House & they make the presentation of Churchill’s bust in a televised ceremony. Maybe Rush could be the Master of ceremonies???
I predict a very high audience for such an occasion and I predict we will hear strangling sounds from the Liberal media.
were I you,
I’d not say you have the same thought as me,
Folks will know you’ve lost it.
Not gonna happen. The Brits know we're always one election away from another bitter snub. They won't give us another chance.
