White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said during a press conference Monday it was natural for World War II veterans to be “embittered” about Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s visit to Pearl Harbor, but they should get over it for the sake of America.
It was announced Monday that Abe will be the first Japanese leader to visit Pearl Harbor since it was hit by a surprise attack that killed 2,403 Americans and brought the U.S. into World War II. The visit reciprocates President Barack Obama’s visit to Hiroshima earlier this year for the anniversary of the atomic bomb attack on the city.
Abe said in a short statement he would pray for those who died in the war, but gave no indication he would express regret for Japan’s surprise attack.
During a White House press briefing Monday, Earnest was asked whether veterans may be offended by Abe’s visit if he expressed no regret over the attack.
……Yes, there may be some who feel personally embittered,” he said. “But I’m confident that many will set aside their own personal bitterness, not because they’re personally satisfied by the words of the Prime Minister, but because they recognize how important this moment is for the United States.”
This is another example of the dismissive arrogance of the Obama regime. Barky’s sentiment toward the military was on full display during Benghazi, the VA scandals, and his response to the attacks on military personnel at Ft. Hood and in Chattanooga.
A real leader would never allow an official visit by a Prime Minister whose country dragged us into WWII by bombing a U.S. military installation and killing almost 3000 people. It’s like the perpetrator returning to the scene of the crime.
Secondly, a real president would never permit a representative to trivialize and insult the survivors of Pearl Harbor by essentially telling them that putting their justified bitterness aside is “important for the U.S.”.
Yeah, let’s not put a damper on Obama’s disgusting habit of ingratiating himself.
Fuck him. Come January 2017, we won’t be saddled with this sorry sack of shit anymore. Hopefully, once he’s out of D.C. he’ll either die in an accident, or someone will do America a favor and kill the miserable son of a bitch.
