Obama is fine with attending concert featuring “kill those Yankees” rapper

It looks like President Obama will attend the “Christmas in Washington” concert where South Korean rapper “Psy” will perform. Obama was not moved to skip the event even after it became publicized that Mr. Psy had the following to say in 2004, following the beheading of a South Korean by Islamic extremists in Iraq:

Kill those f****** Yankees who have been torturing Iraqi captives;
Kill those f****** Yankees who ordered them to torture;
Kill their daughters, mothers, daughters-in-law and fathers;
Kill them all slowly and painfully.

We shouldn’t be surprised. Psy’s rant isn’t that much worse than those of Rev. Wright, who thought that, with 9/11, America’s chickens had come home to roost. Obama also associated, and indeed worked with, Bill Ayers. And Ayers didn’t just wish for the slow and painful death of innocent Americans; he committed himself to bringing it about. With Psy, it was “only words.”

Moreover, Psy apologized, sort of, for his viciousness. Ayers never has.

Barack Obama, himself a left-wing radical in my opinion, seems not to have a problem with those whose left-radicalism has caused them to advocate, or even commit, violence against Americans. And now that he has been reelected, Obama apparently sees no reason to pretend otherwise.
