Original Article

Posted By:Oblio, 12/8/2012 6:56:19 AM

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 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?

Friday, however, he managed to upset conservatives at the annual conference known as CPAC, where thousands of bewildered Republicans gathered to figure out the way forward after their party’s 2012 electoral defeat. 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.

With a Speech, Cardinal

VATICAN CITY—It took Jorge Mario Bergoglio four minutes to convince fellow cardinals he was their leader. Speaking in the Paul VI grand hall of the Vatican, the Argentine cardinal warned the Catholic Church against focusing too much on matters close to home—advice that came against the backdrop of a papacy that had been consumed by infighting among Vatican officials, a dwindling flock in Europe and secular trends in the West. The 76-year-old Father Jorge, as he is known back home, said Roman Catholicism needed to shift its focus outward, to the world beyond Rome—rather than being "self-referential," he said.

When President Obama gets to Jerusalem next week, one of the signals to listen for is an indication of what country he thinks he’s in. Normally this is clear when the President — any president — goes to the capital of a foreign country. He’s in whatever country the capital is capital of. But Mr. Obama has been refusing to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Not only that, but he has been refusing to admit that Jerusalem is even in Israel.

Approaching his first presidential trip to Israel, President Obama offered a fresh and foolish — if not feckless — assessment of the Iranian nuclear threat. "Right now, we think it would take over a year or so for Iran to actually deliver a nuclear weapon, but obviously we don’t want to cut it too close,” the President told an Israeli television interviewer, in the process cutting Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu off at the knees and giving the mullahs breathing room to keep enriching uranium.

I hope I´m not too late to the fight.Last week, freshman Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) held an old-fashioned filibuster against the nomination of John Brennan to head the CIA. Paul´s stated reason for taking to the floor and talking for 13 hours was that the Obama administration wouldn´t give him a straight answer on the question of whether the president can unilaterally order the killing of American citizens on American soil with "lethal force, such as a drone strike … and without trial."

An unfortunate story on CBS New York Thursday carried this headline: "Officials: 80 Percent Of Recent NYC High School Graduates Cannot Read." It´s a shocker, but it´s also untrue. And to make things worse, the story that followed was riddled with typos. According to the New York Post, which reported the same story earlier on Thursday, "79.3 percent of city public-school grads who went to CUNY’s six two-year colleges arrived without having mastered the basics" of reading, writing, and math, and had to take non-credit remedial classes to catch up.

PHOENIX — Ending a day that cast a glaring national spotlight on Arizona, Gov. Jan Brewer, a Republican, vetoed a bill on Wednesday that would have given business owners the right to refuse service to gay men, lesbians and other people on religious grounds. Her action came amid mounting pressure from Arizona business leaders, who said the bill would be a financial disaster for the state and would harm its reputation. Prominent members of the Republican establishment, including Mitt Romney and Gov. Rick Scott of Florida, also sided with the bill’s opponents, who argued that the measure would have allowed people

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is being hammered by Republican lawmakers after he claimed on the Senate floor that all the ObamaCare "horror stories" being circulated are untrue. Reid tried to clarify his remarks late Wednesday by saying he was only referring to the “vast majority” of stories featured in ads funded by Americans for Prosperity, a conservative group, and not the complaints of everyday Americans. However, he added fuel to the fire by continuing to slam the group’s backers, the Koch brothers, calling them “un-American.” Americans for Prosperity President Tim Phillips, in response, said Reid had effectively

If you listen to the chattering class in Washington, D.C., Hillary Clinton is a virtual certainty for the 2016 Democratic nomination, and the front runner in the next presidential race. But in private, rumors persist that the former Secretary of State may not even be capable of making it to Iowa and New Hampshire. Clinton, these skeptics often say, will not run for president again because of health concerns. These ubiquitous rumors of her health have been fueled in part by the supermarket tabloids. The National Enquirer wrote in 2012 that Clinton had brain cancer, something a spokesman dismissed then as “absolute

PHOENIX -- Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer vetoed Wednesday a controversial bill that would have allowed businesses to deny services to gays and others based on religious beliefs.

The Arizona Chamber of Commerce said Monday the bill could hurt tourism, make it hard to recruit new businesses and open the door to lawsuits against businesses. Three Republican state senators also joined thee call for Brewer to veto the bill. On Wednesday, it was reported that

Vice President Joe Biden has revealed that the President assigned him ‘every s*** job in the world’ but he still wasn’t able to win Obama’s full support and began being effectively frozen out after one of his infamous gaffes. The 71-year-old argued that he was happy to do the less glamorous tasks- like handling the at-times petty Senate fights and calming the fears of the infamously paranoid President of Afghanistan Hamid Karzai- but only at a price. ‘When the president asked me what portfolio did I want, I said, “Base it on what you want of me to help you

Secretary of State John Kerry today warned Russian President Vladimir Putin to stay clear of the political turmoil in Ukraine, adding that the U.S. doesn´t view the international tussle over the democratic movement in Kiev as a continuation of the Cold War. “We do not believe this should be an East-West, Russia-United States. This is not ‘Rocky IV´, believe me. We don´t see it that way,” Kerry said in a reference to the popular film in which Sylvester Stallone’s character is pitted against a Soviet bully. Appearing on MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports,” Kerry urged Putin to be “very careful” as he plots

The attorney for Lois Lerner blasted the House GOP for recalling the former IRS official to testify next week, saying it would only serve to embarrass her and could increase threats against Lerner and her family. Bill Taylor, Lerner’s attorney, told House Oversight Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) that he told committee staff in January that Lerner would continue to invoke her Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination if recalled, and that she would "happily testify" if given immunity. Taylor, of Zuckerman Spaeder, said he heard nothing further from the committee until Issa wrote to him on Tuesday, saying he was hauling Lerner

On Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden blamed “hatred” as the motivating force behind voter identification laws in states such as North Carolina, Alabama, and Texas. Biden wants new laws to block “former slave holding states in the south” from discrimination against blacks and other minorities. Biden, speaking at a reception at the Naval Observatory in Washington, D.C., in celebration of African-American History Month, said that, "These guys never go away. Hatred never, never goes away. The zealotry of those who wish to limit the franchise cannot be smothered by reason." Rhode Island Governor Lincoln Chafee (I) would take issue with

President Barack Obama has launched a new program to help African American boys and drew on the low points in his youth during a speech this afternoon. ´I made bad choices. I got high, not always thinking about the harm it could do. I didn´t always take school as seriously as I should have. I made excuses. Sometimes I sold myself short,´ Obama said in the East Room of the White House on Thursday. His comments about his teenage years came as he launched the program called ´My Brother´s Keeper´ which plans to strengthen efforts in creating more opportunities for young black

A chilling video of Maryland police silencing an innocent student who was recording the arrests of two other people has civil libertarians outraged. The arrests were made at night on the streets of Towson, Maryland. A University of Maryland-Baltimore County student who witnessed the arrests decided to record them using his cell phone. The student, 21-year-old Sergio Gutierrez, was soon approached by officers who objected — wrongly — to his actions. Gutierrez repeatedly told the officers that he knew he had the right to film them, but the cops were prepared to use any excuse to shut him down. First they told
