Barack Obama was–how pleasing to speak of him in the past tense–fond of lecturing Americans—actually, the world—on a variety of topics, but he was seldom as disgusting and foolish as when he hectored us about what he imagined to be American “values.” Coincidentally, those “values invariably turned out to be progressive values, which coincidentally turned out to be communist/socialist/Islamist values. “That’s not who we are,”
Mr. Obama would solemnly intone about actual American values like the rule of law and liberty. So, exactly who are we, in the estimation of the Left? Fox News explains:
A massive group of violent demonstrators spat on, assaulted and screamed obscenities at a Gold Star widow and sister Friday outside an inaugural ball honoring the military, one of the women told “Fox & Friends” on Tuesday.
Amy Looney, who lost her husband Navy SEAL Lt. Brendan Looney in 2010, and Ryan Manion, whose brother Marine First Lt. Travis Manion died in 2007, said they were attacked as they tried to enter the American Legion’s tribute to Medal of Honor recipients at the Veterans Inaugural Ball.
‘Unfortunately, as we got there we found ourselves separated from the rest of the group walking to the galas that night and were caught in between the entrance to the event and about 75 protesters that got very angry with us and really converged on us,” Manion said on “Fox & Friends.’
That’s when events quickly escalated.
‘We were pushed by a man in a mask hiding his face,’ Manion wrote in The Philadelphia Inquirer. ‘Our clothes were drawn on with permanent marker by other ‘protesters.’ And we were called the most vile names I have ever heard as we entered and exited the venue.
Well, that’s certainly who the Left are. Andy Swan correctly identifies who Americans are, and what America is. Americans run into hostile fire to save lives and liberty. Leftists set fires, worship those working to destroy America and Americans, and when confronted by the police, when they face the consequences of their actions, bravely run away.
