Obama Despises Winston Churchill

Updated March 7th, 2009

Churchill, Obama and Bush

by Diana West - March 5th, 2009 -

There were three busts in the Oval Office during the Bush Presidency, Abraham Lincoln, Winston Churchill and Dwight Eisenhower. Two of them are gone. Only lincoln is still there. Eisenhower is just gone and no one knows where. The last, the Churchill bust, was returned to England in a way to insult our British friends. Do you know why?

President Obama indicated he wanted the bust out of the Oval Office, indeed, out of the White House, he sent a much more significant message. Namely, he demonstrated how completely our world has turned.

The London Telegraph attempted an explanation: "Churchill has less happy connotations for Mr. Obama than those American politicians who celebrate his wartime leadership. It was during Churchill's second premiership that Britain suppressed Kenya's Mau Mau rebellion. Among Kenyans allegedly tortured by the colonial regime included one Hussein Onyango Obama, the President's grandfather."

In other words, such family lore is supposed to render the British titan who roused the Free World against Nazi Germany and warned the Free World against the Communist U.S.S.R. as popular with the new president as Guantanamo Bay. For the record, though, the Mau Mau story is a historic impossibility, at least according to the known timeline of events.

Did you know that Barack Obama despises Winston Churchill? Obama is so supportive of his grandmother's version of history, an impossible version, that he casually insulted our most important ally. Most important ally at least prior to the ascendancy of Barack Obama. The key point though is that Obama is wrong about the history on which he bases his hate.

There is another explanation for his despising Churchill.

Having achieved a Washington-like apotheosis in the American imagination, Churchill serves not only as the preeminent symbol of resolve, courage and faith against the enemies of Western civilization. He serves as a symbol of Western civilization, period. One of President Obama's first acts as president was to consign that symbol to a box and send it packing.

Barack Obama is filled with more hate than any President since Nixon. I wonder just how many Obama supporters really know this man? He despises Western Civilization. He does not see England as the nation of William "Wilbur" Wilberforce and the abolitionist movement which ended slavery throughout most of the world. Obama sees England, and Western Civilization, as the major force for evil in the world.

His overall views would surprise most of his supporters. He hates honkeys because he is a racist, but he doesn't let us know it. He hates America because he opposes free enterprise, but he doesn't let us know it. He hates Churchill because he believes lies about Western Civilization, but he doesn't let us know it.

Barack Hussein Obama is a stealth candidate of hate for most of what has made America and Western Civilization great. However he does not show his hate. He hides it behind a mild mannered smile. It is frightening how little his supporters really know about this man they have elevated to the most powerful position in the world.

Additional comments
As a footnote to Obama's hatred for Western civilization, there is no better irony than the incompetence Obama showed in his first diplomatic interaction with this most civilized nation. The article London aghast at President Obama over gifts given to Prime Minister Brown pretty much describes Obama's bumbling stupidity in handling a meeting with a man who is a supporter! This matches well with his bumbling asking for Russian support against Iran while abandoning our allies on the missles for Eastern Europe. Obama is not just a hard left ideologue. He is an amateur and arrogant ideologue.
