MSNBC reached a new shameful low yesterday when Chris Matthews referred to West Point as an “enemy camp.” He was showing his surprise that Barack Obama would go to such a place. It is becoming clearer by the day just how much the radical liberals and leftists in this country despise our military.
These observations from the American Thinker provide some additional insights:
Chris Matthews found Mr. Obama’s speech at West Point “a strange venue” and equating it to “the enemy camp.” Of course Matthews gave the obligatory off-handed compliment to the cadets:
“I watched the cadets, they were young kids – men and women who were committed to serving their country professionally it must be said, as officers.”
It must be said Chris? Do you find that a chore, somewhat burdensome for you?
Of course these beautiful Americans are “committed to serving their country professionally.” From the day they enter the hallowed grounds of The Long Gray Line they “do solemnly swear that I will support the Constitution of the United States, and bear true allegiance to the National Government; that I will maintain and defend the sovereignty of the United States.”
To whom have you sworn your allegiance Mr. Matthews? Chris was upset because he “didn’t see much excitement…didn’t see a lot of warmth in that crowd out there.” Perhaps tomorrow the Commandant of Cadets Brigadier General William E. Rapp can release a public apology for the lack of pep rally atmosphere during the President’s speech to get them out of “the enemy camp” and back in “good guy land.”
The vitriol from the Left has been on a collision course with Main Street America for sometime now. In the past, particularly with the military, the statists used the back alleys of innuendo and insinuation but now they are on hater’s highway fearing not the backlash of military-loving Americans.
This is the silver-lining in the media’s loathing of America. Whether it is CNN’s embarrassing fact checking of an Obama skit performed by Saturday Night Live or MSNBC’s unbridled disdain for our military, the scales are coming off America’s eyes.
