President Barack Obama’s intense hatred for the United States was on display once again, this time in Japan when he elected to honor the dead of the enemy during a trip to Japan while ignoring the American soldiers who died fighting for freedom on the islands so close to where he was speaking.
Just in time to begin the process of transformation of Memorial Day from a day of remembering those who served and died to protect our freedom to a day of shame for Americans with the nerve to stand up for their freedom, Obama took the first step in condemning our willingness to drop a bomb on Hiroshima in order to stop World War II.
Speaking of a “silent cry” for the victims of the atomic bomb that dropped in August of 1945, effectively ending Japan’s engagement in the war, Obama seemed to blame the event on the country he represented.
“The flash of light and a wall of fire destroyed a city and demonstrated that mankind possessed the means to destroy itself,” said Obama. “Death fell from the sky and the world was changed.”
Capitalizing on a poor U.S. education system that fails to properly teach history, Obama’s remarks neglect to mention the unprovoked attack of Americans on Pearl Harbor by Japanese aggressors that pushed the United States into the war in the first place or the absolute hatred of the concept of surrender in Japanese culture at that time.
Obama appeared to be making a case for ‘leader of the world’ when he condemned the use of the atomic bomb, saying, “Among those nations like my own that hold nuclear stockpiles, we must have the courage to escape the logic of fear and pursue a world without them.”
No mention of the evils of the Japanese military during the war, including the 1942 slaughter of Australian Army Nurses, the sex slavery created by Japanese forces from 1937-1945, or the murder and cannibalism on the Kokoda Track.
Obama failed to acknowledge the 65-mile march of American and other prisoners during the Bataan Death March, where Japanese soldiers beat, beheaded and otherwise slaughtered those who weren’t strong enough to make the journey to their prisons at the end of the line — largely because of their cultural hatred for those who surrendered rather than take their own lives.
No silent cry for them.
