President Barack Obama will attend a charity concert where PSY is scheduled to perform after it emerged the South Korean rapper participated in anti-American protests several years ago.A spokesman said Friday that the Obama family will attend the December 21 Christmas in Washington concert, as is custom. News reports cite two instances of the 34-year-old "Gangnam Style" rapper participating in concerts protesting the US military presence in South Korea during the early stages of the war in Iraq.

We must just accept the fact that Obama is one of them and work diligently to thwart his polices and get him out of there in 2016 . . . hopefully they´ll be something left of this once great Republic. Remember, you´re only beaten if you say you are.

Exactly #4..... just what I was thinking too.

I know the Pro-Regressive Left uses language to twist and deceive about their intentions, but I wasn´t aware until now that ´´despite´´ equals ´´because of´´.

I can go back to Honey Boo Boo now.

Obama is like a rebellious teenager. He enjoys stirring controversy. Of course, he will attend and the left will hail him as a hero for doing it. The irony is that it appears that Obama is more anti-American than this SK "rapper." It is interesting that performers and that includes the home grown variety love to hate this country and yet still make millions here. Yeah, America is just a terrible, vile place.

Another really irritating thing about this is that the US Naval Academy Glee Club is also performing in this show. They will have to share the stage with this guy.

BTW the concert is this Sunday. It will just be broadcast on December 21.

Patriotic Americans and loyal media need to openly refer to him as a Dictator, and traitor. In public and on air: where he and his "supporters" can see it and hear it. And report it.

An evil person (won´t refer to him as a man).

This is just another stunt --one of many, designed by the Mulatto Marxist to rub it in our faces.

He hates this nation. He´s now been elected by the Takers, the blood suckers, the leeches, and given four more years to bring us to ruin. If you thought the first four were bad, buckle your seatbelts, because the next four are going to rougher than anyone could ever imagine.

If We, The People survive this and America --fifty years from now, is still a free country, We will be known as the Greatest Generation to have survived eight years of tyranny. ob@$tard´s reign of terror will be compared to that of Hitler.

I know a Korean man--now a retired academic who has been in the US for fifty years but makes regular trips back to Korea to teach in the summer. He esitmates two or three thousand north Korean agents are in the South. These agents have taken over education and teachers in Korea at all levels are very left. As leftists, they teach that there is nothing good about the US. Psy should reflect upon this: had the US not defeated Japan in 1945, he´d be speaking Japanese, not Korean. Had the US not stepped in in 1950, his second language would be Russian. Had the US not stayed the course in the Korean war, all of Korea would be a subsidiary of communist China. I know and love Korea and the people--I served there nineteen months in the army and three years as a Peace Corps volunteer. We can add that there is an element of race in anti-American (anti-anyone-not Korean, really) and nationalism in the anti-American sentiment that is so prevalent in Korea. But Psy and Obama would agree on the basic leftist premises behind the anti-American thought.

Really! You don´t expect Obama to attend a program actually celebrating Christ´s birth, with carols and religious music, do you? This is the sort of hip mockery that trendy Christophobes everywhere delight in. The America-hatred exhibited by the Yellow Peril or whatever his name is makes it that much more special.

Why would anyone expect our unamerican dear leader to forego an opportunity to enjoy the lyrics of a man who rejoiced in the death of our soldiers.
Obama will probably go there after he gets his 90 minutes of camera time at the Army -Navy game. It would never occur to him that the two acts are disingenuos and insulting to "his" military.

Barry is going to sue him for plagiarism and a share of the royalties.
The Choomander in Chief will doing that bizarre grin
imagining his buddy singing about killing US troops
and their families.
This is especially revolting since Obama has presided
over a record number of dead American troops
in Afghanistan -
over 1500 since he was inaugurated.
," Kill those f--ing Yankees who have been torturing Iraqi captives and those who ordered them to torture,"
"Kill them all slowly and painfully,"
as well as "daughters, mothers, daughters-in-law and fathers."
You cannot apologize for lyrics like this.
Imagine the media outrage if George W Bush attended a concert where a rapper sang about killing black people and their families.

From Time:

Before he was elevated to international superstardom this year thanks to the magic of his invisible horse dance, Psy was a rapper and music producer in his native South Korea with a bad-boy reputation. In the late ’90s he dropped out of Boston University and the Berklee School of Music without earning degrees, was fined for his first album in 2001 for using “inappropriate lyrics,” and in 2007 he came under investigation for shirking mandatory military duty in South Korea. Now there’s another indiscretion to add to the “Gangnam Style” star’s rap sheet: Psy is coming under fire for a pair of shocking anti-American performances he gave a decade ago.

According to Korean media reports, during a 2002 performance Psy hoisted a toy model of a U.S. tank and proceeded to smash it on the stage with a microphone stand, later joining the crowd in anti-American chants. Busan Haps reports that there was video of this incident posted on YouTube until recently, when it was removed by an entertainment company citing copyright claims. Psy’s on-stage protest was spurred by the killing of two 14-year-old Korean girls when they were run over by an American military vehicle on a South Korean road just north of Seoul. Anti-American sentiment was high, though the two soldiers driving the vehicle were found not guilty of negligent homicide during a court martial.

I tried to use just first letters like S.O.B. but they finally saw through my finer work. I´d offer a prize of some sort but Zippy´s foolin´ with the markets wiped me out. But if anyone deserved a real, honest to goodness cussing contest it is this so-call clown who tries to destroy our country.

I believe you have it exactly backwards about Nancy Reagan and the Beach Boys. That was why they headlined at the celebration for the Statue of Liberty. Because they represent what has always been great about this country. Their music always makes people feel good. Which is more than we can say about this Korean rapper.

After lengthy investigations, the Pentagon has determined that three Army generals committed misconduct in separate incidents, adding to an unusually long list of senior military commanders who have been censured over the past year.On Friday, defense officials confirmed that Army Maj. Gen. Ralph O. Baker, the commander of a strategic counterterrorism force on the Horn of Africa, was fired March 28 on charges of sexual misconduct. Two officials familiar with the case said Baker was investigated for allegedly groping a female civilian employee after he had been drinking.

President Obama´s biggest gaffe yesterday when speaking of California Attorney General Kamala Harris was not in flirtatiously complimenting her as "the best-looking attorney general," but in introducing an observation from the system of beauty into a forum that was about the system of power.What´s that, you say?

Murray ditched his prepared remarks on “America Coming Apart” in favor of an impromptu admonition to fellow conservatives to accept the legalization of both gay marriage and abortion.

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you
