Share-the-Wealth’ Obama’s Charitable Christmas Message

Besides turning the White House into a tabernacle to a Portuguese Water Dog, this year, for the holidays, the president and his family attended the annual “Christmas in Washington” TNT special taped at the National Building Museum.  The Obamas graced the stage with host funnyman Conan O’Brien and Motown diva Diana Ross, who had a broken ankle and was dressed like a black-and-white Christmas tree-topper.

To add to the holiday spirit, a herd of elves, pop star Demi Lovato, The Voice‘s Chris Mann, American Idol‘s very own country crooner Scotty McCreery, Smash‘s Megan Hilty, and PSY, the South Korean “Gangnam Style” psycho with a history of protesting America by smashing replicas of U.S. military tanks, were all there.

The president reminded the audience that the charitable event was “[a] chance to make a real difference in the lives of some very brave former patients from Washington DC’s pediatric Children’s National Medical Center” and that “[m]any of these kids and their parents are going through tough times right now, and your support helps give them a reason to hope – not just during the holidays, but all year round.”

Despite the government’s splendid plans to oversee national health care, Barack “Big Government” Obama seemed to suggest that private charitable donations are still needed to lift the financial burden from sick children and their families.  After all, not every illegal alien has access to a free kidney.

Forgetting about his impending $4-million Christmas vacation, Obama heaped upon the audience guilt weightier than a satchel full of wet puppies.  Always careful to inject his usual Marxist message into everything he says, the president shared from the heart that he believes that Christmas “[b]lessings aren’t just meant to be enjoyed — they’re meant to be used and shared with those who have less.”

Translation: Americans have too much, and what we do have should be redistributed amongst those who have less.  Except if you’re Obama.  Then you’re allowed to delight yourself yearly with $1.4 billion‘s worth of exclusive presidential perks.

Cautious not to offend non-Christians on a Christian holiday, Obama shared that “[a]t the heart of many of the world’s great religions is the idea that we’re all better off when we treat our brothers and sisters with the same love and compassion that we want for ourselves.”

That belief is for only those who don’t have an impoverished half-brother named George who lives in Kenya, in which case “do unto others” doesn’t apply.

Barack Obama suggested we follow “Christ’s calling to love one another as He has loved all of us,” by praying for “Americans … spending this holiday in a hospital bed.”  What he forgot to mention was the dismal future awaiting a nation he shackled to a socialist-style health care system.

Then, when speaking about the down-and-out, Obama again failed to acknowledge his brother George.  He also chose to forego offering to house some of America’s homeless in that vacant $40-million mansion he allegedly purchased in Hawaii.

In closing, without mentioning proposed cuts in military funding that will impact everything from troop readiness to TRICARE and military retirement benefits, the president called to mind those men and women “protecting our freedom on a battlefield far from home.”

And so, the person who is currently decimating health care, the military, and the economy is obviously also blind to the fact that he is the reason the nation is in such urgent need of prayer.  Without even realizing it, at this year’s Christmas in Washington special, Barack Obama exhorted Americans to pray for the victims of a dire situation he created.

Barack Obama’s ‘Gangnam Style’

It’s become a habit for Americans to embrace charismatic individuals without knowing anything about them. The reason could be that our nation’s culture has devolved to the point where we’re shallow, uninformed and more apt to esteem celebrity above patriotism. As a result, there are America-haters among us who have become rich and famous thanks to the accepting nature of the American people.

Take Park Jae-sang, also known as PSY from the PSYcho World.  PSY is South Korea’s very own Pee Wee Herman/pop star whose “Gangnam Style” hit is all the rage right here in the country he apparently abhors.

What’s disturbing about PSY’s popularity is that it says more about the star-struck American public than it does about the K-pop star. In Park’s case, happily clueless, young and old alike are donning sunglasses, black and white loafers, and bow ties and dancing around “Gangnam Style” like undignified fools.

Think about it — the “King of You Tube” phenomenon PSY is enjoying is not a new one. The pop star’s meteoric rise to fame is similar to the one Barack Obama has been riding for the last five years.  That’s exactly how a non-vetted individual like Obama was propelled to political superstardom and ascended to the most powerful position in the world.  Most Americans didn’t know one blessed thing about the man when he was elected in 2008, still don’t know much about him, and worst of all, when disturbing facts are revealed they couldn’t care less.

Barack ‘Obama Style’ started just like “Gangnam Style.” In 2004, a relatively unknown Illinois senator showed up at the DNC convention singing his snappy collectivist tune, and within months became a national obsession.  Americans got so caught up in Obama’s style that they started boogying right along with a man whose low opinion of America was obscured by an adoring media.

Recently, it was made public that over the years PSY has participated in several “anti-American” protests.  In 2002, in opposition to the 37,000 U.S. troops stationed on the Korean Peninsula, PSY painted his face gold and, similar to comedian Gallagher smashing watermelons onstage, PSY, as part of his act demolished a model of a U.S. military tank.

Then, a few years later, after a South Korean missionary was executed, in a rap song entitled “Dear American” PSY expressed his feelings: “Kill those f***ing Yankees who have been torturing Iraqi captives/Kill those f***ing Yankees who ordered them to torture/Kill their daughters, mothers, daughters-in-law and fathers/Kill them all slowly and painfully.”

Now those same “f***ing Americans” are merrily dancing “Gangnam Style” all over the place. Again, either Americans don’t know about the Korean singer’s anti-American rants, or if they know, they don’t care. After all, we do have a President who was reelected four years after suggesting American soldiers “slowly and painfully” tortured Iraqi prisoners!

As it turns out, PSY has millions of dollars in American currency stuffed into the pockets of his tuxedo jacket.  Realizing that his true feelings about the capitalist nation making him rich had been found out and fearing a backlash that could cost him his lucrative status with ‘f***ing Yankees,” PSY released a statement apologizing for his song “Dear American,” saying in part:

As a proud South Korean who was educated in the United States and lived there for a very significant part of my life, I understand the sacrifices American servicemen and women have made to protect freedom and democracy in my country and around the world.

Isn’t it funny how America-haters attempt to disguise their true feelings by kissing up to the U.S. military? PSY sounds eerily like Michelle “For the First Time in My Adult Lifetime, I’m Really Proud of My Country” Obama expressing post-election admiration for service members and their families.

Meanwhile, pop culture junkies remain so entranced with superficial foolishness that we have two men who should be consigned to the Cartoon Network instead enjoying unprecedented recognition. One remains at the pinnacle of political celebrity, and the other has a goofy South Korean dance tune climbing the Billboard charts.

Ironically, “Gangnam” is the name of a wealthy neighborhood in the South Korean city of Seoul where young SK’s go to party. The “Gangnam Style” ‘horse-dance’ is PSY turning an activity typically associated with the rich into a worldwide dance craze.

Yet despite his international ode to the rich, PSY was one of the headliners at a White House Christmas special taped last night and scheduled to air on TNT. As part of the star-studded lineup, the K-pop star entertained President Obama, who has also expressed a fair share of his own anti-American opinions over the years. A group of concerned Americans actually posted a petition on the White House website requesting the controversial singer be uninvited from the President’s holiday event, but the White House removed the petition.

So, with the pop star’s admitted aversion to America, he was amongst likeminded friends who do know about his history of spewing human rights accusations against the United States of America and don’t seem to mind. Therefore, on the Christmas in Washington special, after PSY’s performance, when the camera pans to Barack Obama, no one will know absolutely sure whether or not the President’s applause is for something other than the holiday season being ushered in “Gangnam Style.”
