Greg Gutfeld, who is a regular contributor for the nutty far-right Big Hollywood Web site, has another crime against literature and common sense up on what amounts to an Internet rash. Gutfeld, as he is so apt to do, launches into another foolish attack on President Obama that ends with a childish line that is akin to his boilerplate message.
First, lets start with this chunk:
So President Obama says he’d like to visit Hiroshima and Nagasaki – something no sitting U.S. president has ever done. Of course, there’s a reason they haven’t: it could be seen as criticism of a painful decision that ended the bloodiest war in history.
Now, I don’t mind if Obama wants to go, and it’s probably presumptuous of me to criticize him for what he might say there, since he hasn’t gone yet.
But if I didn’t, then I wouldn’t have a Gregalogue, and that’s not fair to me, or to those delightful unicorn voices in my head.
And besides, I can pretty much go by what I’ve seen of Obama already. Fact is, whenever he’s overseas, he tends to translate American success into past arrogance. Plus, I don’t think he’ll go to Hiroshima and say, “We did it to save lives,” because that undermines his whole point about nuclear weapons being evil.
And look at the fall of the Berlin Wall – the most important positive event in our lifetimes – unleashing a march of countries toward freedom. Obama didn’t even go to that shindig. Instead, he offered a video – the kind of thing Britney Spears does when she can’t accept the trophy for best U.T.I. at the MTV awards.
Still, Obama’s speech wasn’t bad. He championed freedom and stuff.
He says of President Obama: “He championed freedom and stuff.” Is that to say that “freedom and stuff” are not that significant to Gutfeld? Gutfeld does not seem to worked up about “freedom and stuff” as much as he is about what he saw as an opening to again attack President Obama. But, it hardly seems like any piece written by Greg Gutfeld (and is about or includes President Obama) would be incomplete without some kind of irrational cheap shot.
But then, he couldn’t resist:
“Few would have foreseen … that a united Germany would be led by a woman from Brandenburg or that their American ally would be led by a man of African descent. But human destiny is what human beings make of it.”
So, President Obama praises the progress and greatness of the United States of America and of Germany and somehow Gutfeld decides to take a shot at him for it.
Then, Gutfeld wraps it up with this:
So, no mention of Reagan or Thatcher – yet he brings up himself?
Maybe staying home isn’t so bad.
And if you disagree with me, you’re probably a racist!
No, Greg, if a person disagrees with you it’s probably because they have a brain and/or because a person is not a far-right freak.
Look, we know that conservatives worship Ronald Reagan (I actually liked Reagan in one or two ways), but we don’t have to kiss his ass at every turn.
So, Gutfeld ends it by essentially saying maybe President Obama should have kept his black ass home since he didn’t suck up to Reagan like Uncle Ruckus from The Boondocks.
WARNING: If you like Ronald Reagan then stop the video after about 30 seconds.
