In his weekly address today, Barack Obama lauded the Greatest Generation — the men and women who fought for freedom and won the Second World War.
In his address, Obama said this howler:
Let’s make sure that we keep striving to fulfill our founding ideals—that we’re a country where no matter who we are or where we’re from or what we look like or who we love, if we work hard and take responsibility, every American will have the opportunity to make of our lives what we will.
Note that again: “If we work hard and take responsibility, every American will have the opportunity to make of our lives what we will.”
If we work hard and take responsibility.
Work hard. Take responsibility.
This from a man who cannot put in a full day’s work if his life depended on it. This from a man who never had to work for a single thing that was handed to him. This from a man who has yet to take any responsibility for the mess he has made of our healthcare system, our economy, our job market, the implosion of our foreign policy, nothing.
This is the man who, when hardworking American men and women went to the polls in November and voted in Republicans to send a clear message to Washington that they wanted Obama stopped proclaimed that he speaks for all the people who didn’t bother voting.
This is the kind of duplicitous baloney we have come to expect from Barack Obama. He claims that we should all succeed if we are willing to work hard and take responsibility, but then, he rushes before the cameras to make excuses for the people who aren’t willing to work hard or take responsibility for their own lives while they burn their communities to the ground.
It is sad that so many of the Greatest Generation are leaving us while the ranks of the Dependence Generation continues to grow.
The Dependence Generation believe they are not responsible for their own lives but expect all of us to take care of them.
The Dependence Generation do not want to work hard, but want to have food, housing, cell phones, cigarettes, and every other little thing provided for them by the people who do work hard and take responsibility for themselves. And if they aren’t provided everything they want, why, they’ll just smash the windows of the corner convenience store and haul out as much as they can carry.
The Dependence Generation do not believe that you earn a living, rather, you deserve to have a job and deserve to be paid fifteen dollars an hour no matter what job it is.
The number of people in this country who believe that hard work and taking responsibility is the key to living a life of purpose is getting smaller and smaller.
And, key among that demographic is Barack Hussein Obama.
And the Greatest Generation — men who served in World War Two who had on average an eighth grade education — fought for freedom and defeated tyranny.
The Greatest Generation were the women who left home to build planes and bombs, planted Victory Gardens and rationed sugar, rubber and other precious materials (including silk stockings) all for the war effort.
They were the Greatest Generation because they believed in duty, honor, patriotism, freedom. And, rather than piss and moan and hold out their hands demanding to get things from Government, they rallied together as a people and did their part. Because that is what it means to be American.
The Dependence Generation believes they are owed. For what? Who knows? But they are owed. And if we do not provide for them while at the same time excusing their bad behavior, we are haters who are victimizing them.
Obama is the President solely and exclusively of the Dependence Generation.
This is a passage from Chapter Ten of my book Liberals Gone WILD!!! The Not-So-Silent Conquering of America called “The Story of Shorty Belton.”
Liberalism seeks to conquer this nation from within by utterly destroying the foundations, culture and traditions of the United States of America.
This has been going on for more than a hundred years, beginning under the Progressive Movement at the turn of the last century. It has targeted our schools and our churches. It has targeted the family.
It has created a growing subculture of dependence that it nurtures and strengthens by fomenting anger and resentment, dividing us by race, class, gender and sexual proclivity.
Liberalism has taken aim at the very heart of our once civil society.
It has trivialized what it means to be an American — to the point of claiming that the very act of being proud to be American is Offensive.
It has won many victories in its war against America. You would be hard pressed to differentiate between the destruction and violence in Egypt and the destruction and violence in cities like Chicago or Detroit.
We were once a nation that embraced faith and believed in right and wrong.
As John Adams said, “Our constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”
Is it any wonder we now live under a Federal Government that disregards our Constitution? We are no longer a moral and religious people.
Morality is now seen as some archaic throw-back. Morality is equated with “intolerance.”
Religion is slowly being stamped out of public life and those who live by faith are criticized as being “haters” who do not respect “diversity.” Their faith is seen as Offensive to those who have no faith.
The strength and moral guidance of the family has been all but destroyed, especially among blacks.
Our schools do not teach right and wrong because apparently, right and wrong are intolerant, not inclusive and Offensive. Better our children are taught how to use a condom, and how to plan their own jihad.
We have been unmoored.
You cannot strip from a people a sense of moral right and wrong without opening a Pandora’s box. And that box has been flung open wide, and all the horrors that it contained have been unleashed on what was once a civil society.
In late August, 2013, two violent thugs beat an 88-year-old World War II veteran to death.
There is no value in human life — not for these animals.
And Americans showed more outrage at the racists comments of some NBA Team owner or a rodeo clown wearing an Obama mask than they showed at the beating death of this man.
When you no longer have a solid moral foundation, when you no longer are taught right from wrong, targeting and killing a human being is as effortless as deciding between McDonald’s and Taco Bell.
I find it nearly impossible to write about Delbert “Shorty” Belton and at the same time contain my rage at what those animals did to him.
It bears noting that the Greatest Generation — those men who fought valiantly in the Second World War — was not filled with ivy league graduates. Many of them, the vast majority of them, didn’t have more than an eighth grade education. And yet it was these men who fought and won against the Axis. It was these women who took off their stockings and dresses, donned coveralls and welding helmets, and built ships and planes.
They were the very epitome of what it meant to be American.
Shorty Belton was one of the Greatest Generation. He was shot in the leg during the battle of Okinawa and, though wounded, still continued to fight.
And two thugs, two products of Liberalism’s war on America beat him to death like a dog.
I refuse to wring my hands and wail, “Oh, how could this happen? Why did they do this?!”
We know how.
We know why.
Destroy the family, weaken morality, unmoor a people from their faith and culture and this is what happens.
Permit me to speak frankly. For you conservatives who bitch that we need to stop talking about “social issues,” you idiots need to wake up.
We cannot have a strong, vibrant economy when we are unmoored from our moral foundations.
We cannot have a Constitutional Republic if we have no respect for life and our fellow man.
We cannot remain a shining city on a hill when we allow ourselves to sink into the darkness of violence and division.
It is all about the “social issues.” It is all about morality.
If you do not have a moral grounding, you think nothing of demanding that others pay for your home, your education, your food, your medical care.
If you do not have a moral grounding, how will you learn to respect the lives and work of others?
If you do not have a moral grounding, you can kill as easily as swatting a fly.
Shorty Belton fought to protect the American way of life. And while he was in the South Pacific, here in America, Liberalism was fighting against the very way of life Shorty swore an oath to protect and defend.
Yes, we have enemies outside of our borders who wish to destroy us.
But the greater enemy to the United States of America has been quietly, diligently fighting to destroy us from within for a century.
Shorty Belton survived the Japanese.
But he could not survive our greatest enemy.
There will be more Delbert “Shorty” Beltons. There will be more innocent casualties in Liberalism’s War on America.
And rather than ask how or why it happens, we should ask ourselves, what are we willing to do to stop it?
It is incumbent upon us to keep the light of the Greatest Generation burning. We patriots cannot let their sacrifice and their victory be forgotten.
They did not fight and sacrifice and in many cases die so that America could become a nation of takers, parasitic leeches who refuse to even acknowledge the greatness of this nation and the richness of our history. They did not fight and sacrifice and die so that future generations could be divided by race, gender, income and education. They fought for the American ideal. Freedom. Liberty. God and Country.
And if we let them pass from our midst without taking from them the torch of Liberty, they will have died in vain.
