Apparently President Obama loathes our country so much, he can’t even admit that we won the Cold War against the Soviets.
In an interview with Fox News’ Major Garret, President Obama couldn’t bring himself to acknowledge that it was the strength and resolve of the United States that eventually led to the collapse of that evil empire.
Garret: In your speech this morning you said, “The Cold War reached its conclusion because of the actions of many nations over many years.” Mr. President, are the Russian sensitivities so fragile that you can’t say that the Cold War was won? The West won it? And it was led by a combination of Democratic and Republican American Presidents?
Obama: There are a whole bunch of people throughout Eastern Europe with enormous courage and I think that it is very important in this part of the world to acknowledge the degree to which people struggled for their own freedom. We don’t have to diminish other people in order to recognize our role in that history.
We also don’t have to diminish our role in defeating Soviet communism in order to acknowledge the contributions to that effort from people in other countries.
Efforts against this evil system were being made in several countries. Pope John Paul was doing what he could to fight the Soviets, as was Lech Walesa in Poland. But without the strength of the American economy and military might, there was nothing to give real teeth or momentum to their efforts.
It’s hard to truly grasp this anti-American attitude of our president. We have an American president who is so ashamed of his own country, he can’t even acknowledge one of our greatest achievements, in defeating one of the worst evils in human history.
As Sean Hannity pointed out in the video below, Lech Walesa, the leader of the Polish Solidarity movement said,
We in Poland took him [Ronald Reagan] so personally. Why? Because we owe him our liberty. This can’t be said often enough by people who lived under oppression for half a century.
I was in Europe when the Berlin Wall fell, living in England. I celebrated New Years Eve 1989-1990 mostly with British friends, and as we partied in the streets, I had an uncountable number of British people (most of whom had never met me) come up, ask me if I was an American, and when I confirmed that I was, they wanted to shake my hand or hug me (some of the women kissed me), thanking me profusely as an American for being in Europe, for helping bring down the wall, for bringing freedom to places like Romania and other countries that had suffered under the Soviet boot for so long.
These Europeans apparently had absolutely no doubt that the American presence in Europe and American resolve had led to the crumbling of the Soviet Union.
What have we come to?
