When former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani said he did not think that “the president loves America,” was he right? Of course he was. The record is strewn with President Barack Obama’s statements of contempt for America. In a quieter setting I would think that Professor Obama would agree. He would then go on to brag about his love for higher things: for humankind, for the world community, for the planet, the green planet.
Recall in 2009 when Obama told a European audience that “There have been times when America has shown arrogance and been dismissive, even derisive toward” Europe. I cannot remember exactly when “America” or even an American president expressed these sentiments, but I guess Obama and his speechwriters can. He has also expressed his contempt for the American system of commerce. In a speech abundant with contempt for capitalism he said—and I shall only pick out one passage—“if you’ve got a business, you didn’t build that.”
