That would just be “fundamentally unserious”, “uncivil” and “not helpful.”
Looks like Der Fubar, the Beloved Ear SCoaMF Leader, didn’t much like the thought of rubbing shoulders with a man known best for fighting communism to the point where it collapsed altogether.
According to the Wall Street Journal, Polish officials requested that Walesa accept the Medal of Freedom on behalf of Jan Karski, a member of the Polish Underground during World War II who was being honored posthumously this week. The request makes sense. Walesa and Karski shared a burning desire to rid Poland of tyrannical subjugation. But President Obama said no.
Administration officials told the Journal that Walesa is too “political.” A man who was arrested by Soviet officials for dissenting against the government for being “political” is being shunned by the United States of America for the same reason 30 years later.
We really hate it when our sources steal perfectly good lines out of our mouth, but way to go nonetheless, National Review.
Yes, we’re fairly sure that both Jaruzelski and Brezhnev would have thought of Walesa as “too political”, just like their ideological successor, Barack Hussein Ogabe.
Meanwhile, one of the recipients of the Medal was Dolores Huerta, the honorary chair of the Democratic Socialists of America. So socialist politics are acceptable, but not the politics of a man who stood up and fought socialism.
Yet we’re constantly told that we’re a fundamentally unserious Visigoth when we refer to the Democrats as “Democrat Socialists?” And here we have the very figurehead, the Messiah of the DNC, handing out our nation’s highest civilian honor to the honorary chair of, could you run that by us again, the Democrat Socialists???
Unless it’s some sort of a copyright infringement issue, we surely can’t see the logic in the hysteria.
And this right after Der Fubar referred to Nazi Extermination Camps in Poland as “Polish Death Camps.” Which, again, came after Der Fubar abolishing the missile defense umbrella over Poland in return for Russia’s promises to… concessions that… OK, so it was in return for nothing at all.
Heckuva job, Barry Hussein, heckuva job!
By the way, why do you hate the Polish people so much?
