Obama to lay Memorial Day wreath at Confederate marker
Sunday, May 24, 2009
Curses! Obama is too smart to have made a PR blunder like this:
President Barack Obama will send a wreath to the Confederate Memorial at Arlington Cemetery on Memorial Day, rebuffing a petition from academics urging him to cease the decades-old tradition.
The petition, organized by Dallas-based historian Edward Sebesta, says signers want to end glorification of the Civil War and recognize the Confederacy’s links to slavery.
Wait a minute — did the reporter just call Sebesta an "historian"? Whoa …
Pity — Obama’s refusal to lay a wreath at the Confederate Memorial would’ve made more people realize how alien and hostile his agenda is, and ignited a real opposition movement. Instead, Obama did what he’s best at, posing as the fair-minded, impartial, and always rational leader, while orchestrating a radical plan to impose an all-powerful, socialistic system. The man understands the importance of the role of symbolism in political theatre, unlike his leftist core.
As I said — what a pity.
