Barack Obama: Giving Our Military the Finger Since ’08

Written by Pete Parker on October 28, 2013

In my estimation, there has never been a Commander in Chief  in all of American history who has demonstrated such utter and blatant disdain for our military as Barack Hussein Obama. His hyper-condescension and gross disregard for our nation’s fighting forces (and their rich and time honored traditions) is beyond appalling.

Putting aside the fact that Obama has never used the word “victory” when discussing any US military operation –he has squandered the hard fought victory in Iraq by failing to negotiate an extension of the SOFA agreement with that nation’s government.

And, as a result – Iraq is now in abject chaos and may not survive.

This failure to act by our Commander in Chief dishonors those who made the ultimate sacrifice on the battlefields of Mesopotamia.

And who can forget Obama’s election year bravado when he endlessly and very publicly spiked the ball by using bin Laden’s death as a political prop. And, by doing so – he jeopardized the lives of every member of SEAL Team Six.

By publicly discussing the clandestine operation (in an attempt to bolster his foreign policy credentials) – Obama encouraged our enemy to place a bounty on the head of each team member.


Sadly,  Obama’s disregard for our on our military doesn’t end with the aforementioned facts. He has gleefully used our armed forces as a social experiment in order to assuage his radical and mentally convoluted base.

By lifting the ban on gays serving openly and women being assigned to frontline combat units, Obama has profoundly weakened the structural integrity of our fighting forces. He has eviscerated combat readiness while gutting troop morale.

According to recent surveys – at least 25 to 30 percent of our current troops say they will not reenlist due to these bans being lifted. And the numbers are even higher among frontline combat units (75%). 

Manifestly, Obama takes great joy in flouting military rules and regulations (such as “homosexuality is not conducive to military lifestyle”) which has helped construct the most disciplined and moral military in world history.

(I won’t even mention the closing of the World War II Memorial, the illegal crackdown on Christians sharing their faith while in uniform and the new gender neutral Marine Corps cover.)

Allow me to end with this: In 2009 President Obama appointed deputy mayor of Los Angeles Afrik Alikhan to the position of Assistant Secretary of Policy at DHS. Just prior to his appointment, Alikhan praised Hezbollah as a “liberation movement.”

So, the Secretary of Policy for DHS believes an organization that slaughtered 241 US Marines in Beirut 30 years ago is a liberation movement?

Just Barack Obama giving our military the finger.
