Bow to nobody, Mr. President

Ben Shapiro at Breitbart reports that the super PAC Special Operations for America, led by former Navy SEALs, is set to release a video called “Bow to Nobody.” The ad depicts Navy SEALs in combat situations and states that they fight so that America will not have to bow to anybody.

But then, the ad shows President Obama bowing before the Saudi king.

Ryan Zinke, the former Navy SEAL who started the super PAC told Breitbart News:

The ad itself accurately portrays where this President is. It accurately portrays his core belief that America should not lead. This president is shaping America to be one of the followers, to relinquish our role as a world leader. I didn’t fight 23 years as a Navy SEAL to watch America bow to anybody.

It’s not just the king of Saudi Arabia. My friends from WWII that fought in the Pacific theater — when they see the president bow to the emperor of Japan, I’ve seen veterans cry. This is about the fundamental belief in American exceptionalism, the notion that America should reign supreme. We are a country of values, and we fought hard to be exceptional, and we are.

But lest anyone think that Barack Obama is a wimp, Breitbart News also reports that Obama has placed Special Operations for America on his so-called “enemies list.” As Obama likes to boast, he’s skinny but he’s tough.

It should surprise no one that foreign leaders, who generally support Obama’s signature “lead from behind” project are deemed “bow-worthy,” while American patriots such as the former Navy Seals, who insist on real American leadership reportedly find themselves on Obama’s “enemies list.”

UPDATE: Videotruffle has the commercial here.
