Yes, he told us in advance what he planned to
do. Few were listening.
The following is a narrative taken from a 2008
Sunday morning televised "Meet The Press'.
From Sunday's 07 Sept.. 2008 11:48:04 EST,
Televised "Meet the Press" THE THEN Senator
Obamawas asked about his stance on the American
General Bill Ginn' USAF (ret.) asked Obama to explain
WHY he doesn't follow protocol when the National
Anthem is played.
The General stated to Obama that according to
the United States Code, Title 36, Chapter 10, Sec. 171...
During rendition of the national anthem, when the flag
is displayed, all present (except those in
uniform) are expected to stand at attention
facing the flag with the right hand over the
heart. Or, at the very least, "Stand and Face
NOW GET THIS !!
'Senator' Obama replied:
"As I've said about the flag pin, I don't want to be
perceived as taking sides". "There are a lot of
people in the world to whom the
American flag is a symbol of oppression.."
"The anthem itself conveys a
war-like message. You know, the bombs
bursting in air and all that sort of
(ARE YOU READY FOR THIS???)
Obama continued: "The National Anthem should be
'swapped' for something less parochial and less
bellicose. I like the song 'I'd Like To Teach
the World To Sing'. If that were our
anthem, then, I might saluteit.
In my opinion, we should consider reinventing
our National Anthemas well
as 'redesign' our Flag to better offer our
enemies hope and love.It's my intention,
if elected, to disarm America to the
level of acceptanceto our Middle East Brethren.
If we, as a Nation of waring people, conduct ourselves
like the nations of Islam, where peace prevails
- - - perhaps astate or period of mutual accord
could exist between our governments...."
When I become President, I will seek a pact of
agreement to end hostilities between those who
have been at war or in a state of enmity, and a
freedom from disquieting oppressive
thoughts. We as a Nation, have
placed upon the nations of Islam, an unfair
injustice which is WHY my wife
disrespects the Flag and she and I have
attended several flag burning ceremonies in the
"Of course now, I have found myself about to become the
President of the United States and I have put my hatred
aside. I willuse my power to bring CHANGE to this Nation, andoffer the people a new path..My wife and I look
forward to becoming our Country's First black
Family. Indeed, CHANGE is about to
overwhelm the United States of America "
WHAAAAAAAT, the Hell is that???
Yes, you read it right.
I, for one, am speechless!!!
