Obama and more hisotrical ignorance
A few days ago, Obama was giving a speech intending to honor Jan Karski, a Polish-born U.S. citizen, who died in 2000. Karski was a hero of the Polish resistance, the courier who brought to the outside world the irrefutable proof of the Nazi extermination campaign against the Jews of Eastern Europe.
But as he was giving his speech, he said the single most offensive thing he could possibly have said on this occasion:

"Before one trip across enemy lines, resistance fighters told him that Jews were being murdered on a massive scale, and smuggled him into the Warsaw Ghetto and a Polish death camp to see for himself."

The problem with this is many fold. On the surface, it is simply historically ignorant. But it goes much further than that. This is the leader of the free world. And he's in process of honoring a Polish Resistance Fighter. And he manages to tragically insult him in the same sentence.
At worst, it is a blatant insult and a tremendous sign of disrespect. Read this brief, but extremely comprehensive synopsis of Polish-german-jewish relations in WW2, and specifically why this is such a big deal to Poles.

Shouldn't the president of the United States know some basic history here? But i guess what can you expect? He's the first United States leader to bow before a foreign leader in, um, EVER. (Something George Washington specifically said he nor any leader of this great nation would never do).
Somehow i doubt an apology will be forthcoming from obama on this one...

I think we should rescept our leaders and pray for them no matter who they are or how evil they are. I do believe Obama is an evil man and has evil intentions for our country and many are blinded by these things. He wants unemployment to rise he does not want to fix this. The reason why is because if you have a job you will have healthcare, but the more people without jobs the more people who will not be able to pay for healthcare. Obama is a communist he wants the government to have total control and our healthcare system is a big part of it. He wants the government to decide who lives and who dies. Obama is not a man of integrity, he is not a man of righteousness. I do pray for him and ask for the Lord's guidance in his life and that he will make godly decisions for our country. The things he is trying to put into affect right now are very damaging to the freedoms we have and I pray that the scales in America's eyes will be lifted so we move against the breakdown of our country and move towards unity and freedom.
