To show that CHT is not a knee-jerk anti-Obama website but a more intelligent and reasoned anti-Obama website, I would like to offer our President a probably rare, but deserved note of praise for his decision to have a memorial wreath laid at the Confederate Soldiers Memorial at Arlington National Cemetery on Memorial Day.
Now, Obama did this just as he received a letter from 60 academics (including Bill Ayres of all people who, unlike Davis and the Confederate government, really did want to overthrow the U.S. government and replace it with a Maoist state) who asked him not do this, not to “honor” the Confederacy. Indeed such there are such persons in academia and no doubt at the SPLC who have long wished to equate the Confederacy with Nazi Germany and treat Southern soldiers as though they were members of the Waffen SS and Jefferson Davis as Adolph Hitler.
So in having the wreath laid at the Memorial as is tradition, Obama ignored such hateful people and their divisive anti-Southern drivel. It would not have surpised me if he done the opposite. In fact, I would have expected it from him. That he didn’t does deserve a modicum of praise, even if it’s the blind-pig-hitting-the-acorn kind.
