One more thing…

…about that “Polish death camp” remark of Obama’s. According to Powerline’s Scott Johnson, the citation for the medal read that Karski had “worked as a courier, entering the Warsaw ghetto and the Nazi Izbica transit camp, where he saw first-hand the atrocities occurring under Nazi occupation.”

So Obama’s speechwriters, and Obama himself, must have ignored the information present in their own citation when writing Obama’s remarks. Not only was the death camp not “Polish” (although it was in Poland), it was a transit camp and not a death camp, and that information was already known to them.

Maybe Obama should fire his speechwriter and hire the citation-writer to fact-check his speeches.

    Obama new book

    How to make enemies and negatively influence people

    The Hegelian answer to:
    How to make friends and influence people

    rewrites a la hegel are as easy as changing DON’T to ALWAYS…

    Fundamental Techniques in Handling People:
    Don’t criticize, condemn, or complain.
    Give honest and sincere appreciation.
    Arouse in the other person an eager want.
    Never show others that you are not interested in what they have to say.

    under hegel becomes:

    Always, criticize, condemn without the facts, and complain
    Never give honest and sincere appreciation
    destroy all desire in others
    show others that nothing interests you but you, slouch, yawn, not be there, return gifts

    Marxism feminism, etc… are Adobo ideas. you add them to everything and everything just seems better (but isnt really)

    however, what one CAN get from this is that they are so ideology bound that they cant deviate from the propaganda as truth. ie. so steeped in the angles, the deconstructions, the false positions and such, they have no way to actually even speak correctly!!!!

    ie. they were never supposed to actually rise up and obtain a place being a low down believer and not know better.

    so used to the rhetoric to stir up people that they cant separate it… the americans dont care about themselves enough to call them out on such minor things (To them)

    but unlike the US under cultural assault, OTHERS find details, and facts important… they did not grow up steeped in the worst of the ideological reformations of reality, and so they just dont have the CONDITIONING to listen and not get upset when attacked the way the self loathing fearful westerners are

    dont you get it?
    this is NEW WORLD MAN

    RUSH sang about him..

    He’s got to make his own mistakes
    And learn to mend the mess he makes

    He’s old enough to know what’s right
    But young enough not to choose it

    He’s noble enough to win the world
    But weak enough to lose it —

    He’s a New World man…


    He’s not concerned with yesterday
    He knows constant change is here today

    He’s noble enough to know what’s right
    But weak enough not to choose it

    He’s wise enough to win the world
    But fool enough to lose it —
    He’s a New World man…

    Ten most likely Obama responses:

    10. I was actually just filling in for Bush.
    9. Michelle says they’re just dumb Pollacks.
    8. I was very tired after a full round of golf.
    7. The Polish acted stupidly.
    6. Some people are just bitter clingers.
    5. It was in Poland; it was Polish. So there.
    4. Have you ever smelled their cooking?
    3. I killed bin Laden.
    2. The IRS can audit Polish-Americans you know.
    1. You’d think they be grateful.

  3. Sam L. Says:

    I keep hearing the “He’s so SMART!” And there’s the “we’re not worthy of Obama” trope.

    “Cult of personality” comes to mind. Claque comes to mind, too.

  4. Francesca Says:

    The teleprompter acted stupidly. Doesn’t Obama have any people who know how to spot these cultural/historic minefields? Why doesn’t Obama himself know this stuff? Did he really ever go to college? Hmmm.

  5. Gar Taylor Says:

    No adults in the room to watch over the kids

  6. Curtis Says:

    A boxer, he, by trade
    Exonian trained. Made
    for not pulling punches-
    he gave retributions.

    He was although required
    to be a man retired
    from using his craft
    to hurt the unqualified.

    Thus there now will not be
    attacks from Mr. V,
    which I say good for thee
    and better yet for me.

  7. ConceptJunkie Says:

    @Artfldgr: I always enjoy your long rambling missives, because no matter what direction they may veer, it’s always interesting. Quoting Rush is something I never expected, but it’s full of win.

    @Curtis: This is excellent!

About Me

Previously a lifelong Democrat, born in New York and living in New England, surrounded by liberals on all sides, I've found myself slowly but surely leaving the fold and becoming that dread thing: a neocon.
