Why Is West Point The ‘Enemy Camp’ For Barack Obama?

MSNBC‘s Chris Matthews put it into crystal-clear perspective.  When Barack Obama gave his Afghanistan speech at West Point, he was entering “the enemy camp.”

That is a shocking admission, coming from the Obama-approved media.

You can understand it being “enemy territory” if Obama were to go to Afghanistan and address a Taliban training camp.  But West Point?  A U.S. military academy?  Just what kind of president is this man that his own military must be regarded as “the enemy”?

How is this not profoundly wrong?

Now, you might argue that Chris Matthews is just using a metaphor.  But it is simply a fact that Matthews is pretty clear that the West Point cadets did not positively respond to what Obama said to them.  They didn’t receive him well.  They don’t like his agenda.  And maybe they don’t even like him.

Liberals might regard that as a positive point about this president.  A liberal high school LATIN teacher asked a 17-year old future West Point cadet, “Why would you want to become a mindless killing machine?”

I have to share the young man’s answer to that despicable teacher, in the words of his proud father:

But our son looked at this guy in the eye and said, “Sir, there are people out there who want to kill us and I feel like I’m called to keep that from happening,” and I’d like to add that it only took them about two seconds to identify the mission, not three months, and he’s only 17.  You can imagine how much pride I feel in him for making such a statement and how outraged I was his teacher would even ask him that.

Like I said: liberals might regard it as a wonderful thing that the President of the United States would have a hostile relationship with the United States military.  I regard it as an damning indictment against a less-than-pathetic commander-in-chief that the guardians of our freedom who sacrifice themselves so that others might live free neither like him nor respect him.

Obama-approved mouthpiece Chris Matthews is correct in asserting that the United States military is like an enemy camp to Barack Obama.

Obama gave his speech at West Point in order to use the venue as a photo-op, and in fact to co-opt the cadets into appearing to support his policies.

It didn’t exactly work, as Der Speigel pointed out:

Just minutes before the president took the stage inside Eisenhower Hall, the gathered cadets were asked to respond “enthusiastically” to the speech. But it didn’t help: The soldiers’ reception was cool.

Let us put aside that this order, or “suggestion,” is yet another example of the same sort of “politically-correct” postmodernist multiculturalism that the Obama-warped military establishment accorded to a Muslim officer who was promoted even though he had been in contact with al-Qaeda some thirty times, and had an acronym for “soldier of Allah” emblazoned on his business cards.  (Not to mention the fact that the military has now so degenerated into political correctness that it is now treating terrorists like citizens, and Navy SEALs like terrorists).

What is wrong with this president that our future Army officers have to literally be told to be “enthusiastic” toward him?  And even then refuse to do so?

The following two paragraphs provide an answer why our future military officers feel as they do:

One didn’t have to be a cadet on Tuesday to feel a bit of nausea upon hearing Obama’s speech. It was the least truthful address that he has ever held. He spoke of responsibility, but almost every sentence smelled of party tactics. He demanded sacrifice, but he was unable to say what it was for exactly.

An additional 30,000 US soldiers are to march into Afghanistan — and then they will march right back out again. America is going to war — and from there it will continue ahead to peace. It was the speech of a Nobel War Prize laureate.

I would argue that what Chris Matthews statement about West Point being an “enemy camp” for Obama means is that Barack Obama is openly hostile to the United States military and everything it stands for.  Barack Obama has said he wants to “fundamentally transform America,” and has vowed to “remake America.”  You can understand why people who love our countries’ traditions wouldn’t appreciate a man who hates those very same traditions.  These young future officers did not sign up to fight and die for Obama’s “remade” America.  They love the America of their forefathers, rather than the America of Barack Hussein’s Marxist visions.

It’s not just the U.S. Army that has quiet contempt for Barack Obama.  The U.S. Marines don’t care much for him either, judging by the “polite” response they gave him versus the wild cheering for their last real commander-in-chief:

When the men and women who are willing to put their lives on the line to protect the rest of us are quietly disgusted by their commander-in-chief, you should seriously contemplate these valiant warriors’ judgment.

    Good post–I think Matthews comment says alot.

  2. Michael Eden Says:

    Nothing says better than when a liberal says what he/she REALLY thinks.

  3. Disciple Says:

    Chris Matthews actually said that? What an idiot. Even if he thinks that, and Obama thinks that, what an idiot to say it out loud. Of course, I’m glad he did. I like to know what the enemy is thinking. The real enemy: Obama. And his little dog too, er, I mean, Matthews. ;)

  4. Michael Eden Says:

    Matthews was widely attacked, and “apologized” for telling us what he really thought (he basically added in his “apology” that he was still right).

    Chris Matthews accurately represented the liberal attitude toward the military.

    It is pathetic that liberals believe in an ideology that prevents them from saying what they really think, lest they reveal themselves as the dangerous ideologues they truly are.

  5. Disciple Says:

    On that note, I am currently reading Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals and the ideology outlined there in vivid detail is dangerous and all of us need to read it to know what we’re up against. Our politicians who have schooled in the Alinsky method speak a language full of deceit, and we must learn to decipher it before they manage to re-write all of our laws and our Constitution and strip our freedoms from us. Really, this has been going on for so long but many of us (most of us?) are only just now waking up to it.

  6. Michael Eden Says:

    I agree. “Smart” liberals aren’t like conservatives, who can tell you what they really think. Because liberals want awful things and people would reject them if they found out what liberals really think and really want.

    Most of the time, they can’t even come out and call themselves “liberals.” They have to figure out some new label that disguises who and what they really are.

    In addition to the Rules for Radicals, we should learn about political correctness, and the agenda that is being played out.

    Being politically correct is not just an attempt to make people feel better. It’s a large, coordinated effort to change Western culture as we know it by redefinig it. Early Marxists designed their game plan long ago and continue to execute it today — and now liberals are picking up the same tactic: to control the argument by controlling the “acceptable” language. Those with radical agendas understand the game plan and are taking advantage of an oversensitive and frankly overly gullible public.
