Rudy Giuliani has a history of speaking his mind, and his latest insight that President Obama does not love America, has certainly “hit a nerve,” as Giuliani himself observed. Amid the uproar from the media that anyone would dare question a liberal’s patriotism, the former New York City mayor isn’t backing away from his candid comment. He told the New York Times “I said exactly what I wanted to say. I conveyed exactly the message that I wanted to convey.” Giuliani observed that Obama criticizes our country “much more often than other American presidents,” both Republican and Democrat. He added that Obama “was educated by people who were critics of the U.S. And he has not been able to overcome those influences. From the time he was 9 years old, he was influenced by Frank Marshall Davis, who was a communist.” As a young “community organizer,” Obama was influenced by the radical socialist Saul Alinsky.
While running for president in 2008, Obama criticized Americans in rural Pennsylvania and in small towns in the Midwest by saying that “they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy toward people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.” Obama frequently refers to our Nation as “this” country, as though it is some other country and not “our” country, as when he said, “There’s a long history in this country of African-Americans and Latinos being stopped disproportionately by the police.” When Obama has expressed admiration for our country, it’s often in a backhanded manner.
Giuliani verbalized what I think all of us feel, in saying, “I want a president who is not embarrassed to say America is the strongest power on earth. And I want our enemies to be afraid of our president.”
