The moment Obama shook hands with
the rapper who sang ´kill those f******
Yankees´: Outrage as Gangnam sensation Psy
performs for President at charity concert

Daily Mail [UK], by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 12/10/2012 3:27:25 AM

President Barack Obama has been pictured shaking hands with a South Korean rapper who sang about wanting to kill American soldiers. PSY, born Park Jae-sang, performed at a White House charity event on Sunday, despite a deeply controversial performance in 2004 that has shocked and outraged American fans. The rapper showed off his signature dance moves while performing ´Gangnam Style,´ which has the most watched YouTube video in history. PSY owes his popularity to his Korean pop hit taking hold among tens of millions of American fans. However, countless fans were offended by the lyrics from an anti-American protest

Comments:
Dunno about you but I´m out of words for describing Obama´s actions.

If Obama thinks that Americans serving in the military, particularly in war zones, don´t know about this, he needs to have another think. In turbulent times such as these, a Commander in Chief doesn´t need to be relying on service members who could turn against him. With each passing day Obama proves himself to be dumber and dumber.

I have stopped getting my blood pressure up over the actions (and inaction´s) of this president, his administration and the Good Old Boy politicians. I am but one person and I can´t fight the hordes of minions that have nothing in common with me. I will live my life the best I can and hope my children have a country that they can love is still around when I am gone.

Obama´s more interested in being a celebrity cult president than standing up for American ideals.He agrees with anti-Americanism so of course he was glad to shake this guys hand.

The only behavior that offends Obama is stubborn republicans not rolling over for him.

Psy asked repeatedly that his apology be accepted, spoke of his remorse for words spoken years ago, and stated that he would regret those words the rest of his life.

Give it a rest. When they asked to be forgiven in a plausible fashion...we are supposed to forgive. It´s in the Book.

I´m with 5 on this one. I hate what he said, and i know first hand what Americans have done for S Korea, but if we have become so cynical that a repeated apology for the actions of stupid young person who buys into stupid media lies does nothing for us, we are the ones who have lost.

I´ll accept his apology. But I wonder if the chattering classes would accept and defend him if he made a song with the lyrics ´kill those f****** f*gs´?

I think not.

Anyway, Psy is a passing fad, I don´t think he will last past the new year. Anyway, Monty Python did the riding the invisible horse moves long before Psy did.

#13 is right.

PSY said something incredibly stupid and he has apologized. Fine

Psy still needs to be held accountable for his words! Come on.

This society allows for anyone to do/say anything then apologize and it´s all forgotten.
No accountability, no responsibility left in our world. I should check to see if those 2 words are still in the dictionary.

Bingo #13. Spot on.

Time to let these foreign countries do without American defense and dollars. The government believes it is entitled to more of our hard earned money so it can GIVE it away to nations that hate us. Look at the Middle East. We are the biggest enabler of terrorism on the planet. The United States needs an intervention. We are clearly suicidal.

A little off topic.

Anybody watch the Army/Navy game Saturday? The VP shows up for the game and sits on one side of the field. Then at halftime tradition has him walking across the field to side with the other team. When this happend the boos from the crowd would have embarresed a normal man, but Joe just painted on that stupid grin of his.

It´s because I can´t take much more. My mind is on overload, and circuits are in danger.

I´m just glad I never downloaded and/or watched his stupid YouTube - only what I see on Fox News clips. And that´s where I´ll leave it now.

Nothing this president does should surprise US. He´s out for REVENGE every chance he gets. This "in you face" to Korean conflict soldiers and sailors who risked their lives for Psy´s posterior is just the latest example of his comtempt for Americans....

Can you imagine his life and his family´s life if North Korea had taken over South Korea? He´d be a lot thinnnnner...

i have no doubt psy regrets saying it, but i am 100% certain he still thinks that way. has he sacrified to atone for it? and if he made a sacrifice now, it would only be a belated attempt to appear contrite.

obama hocked up and spat square in the face all who have ever served the nation, living and dead. i would call him traitor, but he is a hostile alien to this nation.

tens of millions of people, at least, are suffering the curse of this scum.

I´m with you #24. Sixty years ago a dear friend of mine and my brothers, was killed in Korea. I was 17. I remember his sister and her husband coming to our house to tell my mother and father. Both my parents reacted like he was one of their own children. Our house went into mourning for him. (His parents were passed).
For this guy Obama to shake the hand of a korean rapper who sang ´kill those f****** Yankees´, shows that BHO has no discretion nor sense of patriotism for this country or out soldiers who died giving south korea its freedom. Shame on him and all who were there with him.

- It could have been worse. It´s not like he sat on an anti-aircraft gun or anything...

- Like Obama, Psy will be forgotten soon enough. Let´s worry about the big picture.

Those who think this man offered a sincere apology and that it is churlish not to forgive him should read the exact words of the statement released by his publicist.

What, exactly, did he apologize for? Did he disavow the violent, hateful lyrics and their anti-Americanism? Did he clarify them? Did he say that such beliefs and assertions were false? That torturing and murdering the families, including the in-laws of American personnel is a monstrous, misguided, evil fantasy?

No. The so-called apology contained none of the above. It was an apology for saying something that could have hurt somebody´s feelings or offended them, that´s all.

"While I´m grateful for the freedom to express one´s self, I´ve learned there are limits to what language is appropriate and I´m deeply sorry for how these lyrics could be interpreted. I will forever be sorry for any pain I have caused by those words.

"While it´s important that we express our opinions, I deeply regret the inflammatory and inappropriate language I used to do so."

Note the qualification: "I´m deeply sorry for how those lyrics could be interpreted." This is tantamount to saying he is sorry if people took his words the wrong way and were offended by their misunderstanding of what he actually meant.

From an intellectual point of view, and possibly also a moral one, this so-called "apology" could be considered a more egregious offense than the ignorant, violent, vile and vulgar "lyrics" themselves.

I agree with those who think like #3, #13, etc.

Nothing like having over another America hater. If you hate America, you´re in the club. Most former patriotic presidents would not even consider associating with an America hater, let alone having one over for a shin dig/shake hands. Apology NOT accepted. Hey let´s just pull our American troops in S. Korea and see if psy & co mock us then.

I chuckle inside whenever some media reporter refers to Obama as "The President". They should call him piggy because such a title of "T.P." is like lipstick on a pig. Obama is nothing more than an agent saboteur. Seems like he´s prepping the U.S. for an ambush attack by another country.

My parish priest, the associate rector, went to Korea as Chaplain. and there he was just with a driver and his Communion ensemble and some robes and formal cap. They were driving the front-lines, ministering to the wounded and to the dead.
for almost 3 yrs.
To me an american and an american hero. And his commanding officer thought so too. And wanted to put him in for a commendation.
In a war-zone, front lines, no side-arm even.But he said no, thre were many more deserving than he was.
Enough said. But will Obama do after say 20 yrs as President(if he gets the 22nd amendment cancelled) Where will the go, Who will have him has Prime Minister or Head-of-State?

BTW, if it wasn´t for OUR Military, this little over-fed-obnoxious-creep would be subsisting and starving in North Korea. Which, come to think of it, is where he belongs.

0bamm is ridiculous and derogatory to all of us.

If you want to apologize and be believed, you have to do certain things.
1. Say you were wrong.
2. Say specifically how you were wrong.
3. Say that you were obviously stupid or under the influence.
4. Say that you would NEVER do it again as you have grown up or gone to AA.
5. Offer to make retribution of some kind.
6. Repeat as often as necessary until believable.

There is nothing cynical about refusing an unrepentant, convenience-only apology. Zero is the cynical one, to allow such scum into the White House. This is simply another bold betrayal of America. Mr. Gang-man still harbors hatred for everything American except the dollar.

It would be one thing for this jerk to apologize .
Although, asking people to kill US soldiers and their wives and children and parents is not something
that can be excused. IMHO.
But, when the Commander in Chief ,
when we are still at war , legitimizes the guy -that´s an insult and an affront to all Americans.
Well ...maybe not all Americans , but , it is an affront and an insult to 60 million of us , for sure.
It obviously wasn´t an affront to the Commander in Chief.
We are still having flag draped coffins returning to Dover AFB on almost a daily basis.
We lost another SEAL yesterday rescuing the doctor from the Taliban in Afghanistan.
This is disgusting and insulting and typical behavior from Obama.
Imagine if George Bush attended a concert
and then shook hands with someone who asked that blacks and their family members be killed.

The article says Charity Concert. Was this not supposed to be the Christmas program? If so, I wonder if Christ was even mentioned. Obama claims to be a Christian, yet he disavows everything Jesus proclaimed to be, also denies others the opportunities to stand up for their faith in the only true God, Jesus Christ, our Lord/Savior.

One time we as Americans celebrated Him and taught our children to follow in our footsteps. Today we malign anyone who professes faith in Jesus. The anti-Christ spirit is visible in the lives of those in power today. Pray for America! God will again shine down upon US when we confess our sinfulness, align ourselves with His Son, born into this world to save US, one day to be with Him forever in His everlasting Kingdom where there will be no more war for the Prince of Peace will rule/reign and we will know the Joy of the Lord forevermore.

Pray for Obama, that he sees the Light of the world and comes to know in Whom all power comes from. He will be judged one day, as will all of US, pray for the Lord of the Harvest, bringing US together, united in Him. Amen

This rapper is a moron, as historical fact establishes that if it were not for the 28,000 American servicemen who died fighting the Chinese and the North Koreans during the largely forgotten Korean War (1950-53), that the only dances and songs that he would be performing would be Communist anthems and the like, if he was not spending his life in some gulag.

You can bet that if you met Obama and off the cuff asked him about all that, he would not have a clue as to what you were talking about, and neither would most of the millions of Americans who voted for Obama last month.

He did not apologize for WHAT he said but HOW and WHERE he said it. He said he was sorry if some people were offended by a possible "interpretation" of the lyrics. He said it is important to express one´s opinions -though just why the opinion of a low-life like him is important to express is unclear- but that he used the wrong language.

I do not agree, not at all, with those who say that this pseudo-apology should end the matter, and I am sorry to find that for some people it apparently does. It is certainly questionable whether a genuine apology, one that explicitly renounced the barbaric homicidal sentiments he sang(?) would be adequate, given the extremely grave nature of such language - but he did not even offer a real apology. And of course that such an individual such be received as an honored guest and allowed to perform at the White House is a disgrace.

Rap "music" is antisocial trash whose rhythms provoke aggression and sex. The viral video everyone is talking about is just a collage of clips containing nothing but the usual egocentric boasting, sexual images and gyrations, and sex talk. It is admittedly mild enough compared to the obscene and pornographic antisocial rubbish pushed on American teenagers by domestic rap producers. There is nothing elevating, edifying, or healthy about such sewage, the majority of which is purchased by white teenagers. All art, wrote John Ruskin, is either instruction or infection. Rap is not instruction. No rapper belongs at a White House ceremony; this rapper belongs there less than most. This is not a small thing. It is a big thing. Accepting such behavior defines deviance down another step on the slippery slope.

Once upon a time, entertainers, even comedians, invited to The White House, whether to perform or be honored in some manner, knew enough to maintain a certain level of standards and decorum above and beyond reproach. Sadly, during our current and soon to be extended nightmare of an administration, such is no longer the case.

Here is the full apology, copied from MTV News:
"As a proud South Korean who was educated in the United States and lived there for a very significant part of my life, I understand the sacrifices American servicemen and women have made to protect freedom and democracy in my country and around the world. The song I was featured in -- from eight years ago -- was part of a deeply emotional reaction to the war in Iraq and the killing of two innocent Korean civilians that was part of the overall antiwar sentiment shared by others around the world at that time," the statement read. "While I´m grateful for the freedom to express one´s self I´ve learned there are limits to what language is appropriate and I´m deeply sorry for how these lyrics could be interpreted. I will forever be sorry for any pain I have caused anyone by those words."

"I have been honored to perform in front of American soldiers in recent months — including an appearance on the Jay Leno show specifically for them — and I hope they and all Americans can accept my apology," the statement concluded. "While it´s important we express our opinions, I deeply regret the inflammatory and inappropriate language I used to do so. In my music I try to give people a release, a reason to smile. I have learned that though music, our universal language we can all come together as a culture of humanity and I hope that you will accept my apology."

Agree with all who say his apology was one of convenience, as are most apologies like this. He´s not sorry he said it, he´s sorry he got caught. No American, president or ordinary citizen, should attend one of this joker´s performances. South Korea would not be what it is today if not for Americans who fought, froze, and died there.

#29, I like your idea. It would be nice if Obama went with him.

President Obama is a disgrace and a coward. Genghazi he gave the order to stand down , no one else has the authority to give such a command . This gave the death sentence to the 4 Heroes defending the consulate compound. Even Panetta incorrectly stated that we did not have the troops and time to deploy aid to the Ambassador and his 3 colleagues.Obama shaking hands with this sick Rapper shows what is in Obama´s brain. God help us if there is a conflagation with any near or far east country particularly Iran.There is a sizeable US force still in South Korea estimates ROK-US agreed level 28,500.Particularly distasteful and out of touch with reality is the Presidents greeting this foul mouthed rapper and it´s a swipe in the face to our Army ,Navy and Marines stationed in South Korea.Better that Obama remind this rapper the troops are there to prevent South Korea being obliterated from a North Korean Nuclear tipped Test Missile.

Yikes...

Again...forgiveness is commanded by Christ especially when its requested humbly.

When did you ever do something in your twenties you regretted in your thirties?

When did you ever apologize for something...when it came to light?

Finally, the definition of forgiveness is treating the wrongdoer as if he didn´t do it. The other versions of forgiveness are not something you would give to a friend.

I´ll sign off now.

I left the service in 2011 after 5 years and two combat deployments. I began my service under a Commander-in-Chief who, while not perfect by any means, always displayed the utmost of genuine love and warmth for we who wore the uniform. I finished my service feeling discarded and disrespected. Those feelings make their ways from the Pentagon down through the senior officer ranks and the NCO support channels. Class tells to those of us who served. Obama is a Commander in Chief with NO class.

The DVD,"Dreams from my REAL Father" helps to explain Obama/Soetoro´s hate for America. Obama/Soetoro was indoctrinated by Frank Marshall Davis, known Communist, and 0/S clearly is a Socialist.

One has to ask, why are taxpayers being forced to pay for the cradle to grave support, for a breeding program, for "minorities" who hate them? Is that not slavery AND suicide?

Over the last couple of days, the internet security community has been rocked by a truly gargantuan bug, which has been named "Heartbleed" by the researchers who have discovered it.

The widow of Apple Computer founder Steve Jobs is ´ready´ for Hillary Clinton, and she´s written a hefty check to prove it. Laurene Powell Jobs has given $25,000 to the ´Ready for Hillary´ super PAC, a political campaign organization that has raised more than $4 million to lay the groundwork needed for former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton´s expected White House run. Sharon Elghanayan Corzine, the wife of former New Jersey Gov. Jon Corzine, also put $25,000 on the table. So did gay-rights philanthropist Tim Gill, who created the one-time desktop publishing software powerhouse Quark Xpress.

A grinning, chuckling Kathleen Sebelius stood alongside President Barack Obama on Friday morning, accepting praise that has eluded her throughout Obamacare´s troubled early months. Only 10 days ago, the president ignored her as he took a victory lap when the Affordable Care Act´s signup numbers crested above 7 million. But he had kind words for the health insurance warrior in her final public appearance as a federal government employee.

It is not known if the author had completed a first draft, and it will now be up to her family to decide what, if anything, of the project will be published. The working title raises the wonderful prospect that Townsend planned for her hero to be romantically reunited with Pandora, object of his affection since

WASHINGTON--Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius is resigning from the Obama administration after the rocky rollout of President Barack Obama´s signature health care law, a White House official said Thursday. Her resignation comes just one week after the end of the first enrollment period for the Obamacare law. While the opening weeks of the rollout were marred by website woes, the administration rebounded strongly by enrolling more than 7 million people in the new insurance marketplaces. Sebelius´ resignation following her five-year tenure in Obama´s Cabinet comes as the White House seeks to rebound from the politically damaging launch of the health

Solar power has won the global argument. Photovoltaic energy is already so cheap that it competes with oil, diesel and liquefied natural gas in much of Asia without subsidies. Roughly 29pc of electricity capacity added in America last year came from solar, rising to 100pc even in Massachusetts and Vermont.[Snip] The technology is improving so fast--helped by the US military--that it has achieved a virtous circle.

The question is an important one: Republicans claim that most of those who signed up are Americans who lost their existing policies in 2013 because they didn´t meet the Affordable Care Act´s strict and sometimes bewildering minimum standards.

One week ago, President Obama was celebrating. 7.1 million Americans had signed up to his landmark law. Today however, it’s the same old story. Once again, Obamacare is critical. The latest crisis? For Americans who don’t yet possess health insurance, the US health care market is now effectively on lockdown until the year’s end. Yes, you heard that right. [Snip] The flowing narrative is all too clear--didn’t sign up by the President’s shifting deadlines? Take a hike. This latest incident speaks volumes about Obamacare--a law that was born in arrogant partisanship and is now defined by utter absurdity.

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water.

The son of the Nevada rancher locked in an increasingly tense land dispute with the federal government, says their cowboys managed to break a blockade and retrieve around 30 head of cattle. Federal agents swooped on Tuesday after Cliven Bundy, dubbed the last remaining rancher in southern Nevada, refused to remove his herd of 900 cows from land he claims has been in his family since 1870. The heavily-armed federal agents, equipped with eight helicopters and backed-up by snipers, surrounded the Bundy ranch after the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) attained a federal court order to confiscate the family´s herd.

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators.

Terry McAuliffe is warning that global warming could raise sea levels high enough to flood the Hampton Roads region, home to the world´s largest naval base, without immediate and “smart decisions.” Addressing an environmental summit this week at the Virginia Military Institute in Lexington, Va., McAuliffe embraced climate change, blamed humans for causing it, and said action is needed now to protect Virginia´s coast from rising ocean levels that will result from global warming. “The first big decision of course is to accept that climate change is real,” he told the group. “I happen to believe in

President Obama stood Friday with the Rev. Al Sharpton and accused Republicans of trying to keep millions of Americans from voting, in a fiery speech days after new revelations about Sharpton’s past as an FBI informant. “The right to vote is threatened today in a way that it has not been since the Voting Rights Act became law nearly five decades ago,” Obama told the annual convention of Sharpton’s National Action Network in Manhattan. Obama’s appearance represented a presidential seal of approval of Sharpton’s role as a civil rights activist, amid the new revelations about how Sharpton used a wire to record

Nearly a year into the IRS scandal, we still don´t know exactly what happened—though we are finally getting an inkling. That´s thanks to the letter House Ways and Means Chairman Dave Camp sent this week to the Justice Department recommending a criminal probe of Lois Lerner. The average citizen might be dizzied by the torrent of confusing terms—BOLO lists, Tigta, 501(c)(4)—and the array of accusations that have made up this IRS investigation. Mr. Camp´s letter takes a step back to remind us why this matters, even as it provides compelling new information that goes to motive and method—and clarifies some of

Solar power has won the global argument. Photovoltaic energy is already so cheap that it competes with oil, diesel and liquefied natural gas in much of Asia without subsidies. Roughly 29pc of electricity capacity added in America last year came from solar, rising to 100pc even in Massachusetts and Vermont.[Snip] The technology is improving so fast--helped by the US military--that it has achieved a virtous circle. Michael Parker and Flora Chang, at Sanford Bernstein, say we entering a new order of "global energy deflation" that must ineluctably erode the viability of oil, gas and the fossil fuel nexus over time.

STAMFORD, Conn. — Jeb Bush defended his controversial comments about immigration reform, insisting they were nothing new for him and urging “sensitivity to the immigrant experience.” At a Connecticut Republican party dinner Thursday night, the former Republican governor of Florida did not repeat his remarks from last weekend at his father’s presidential library, when he said that people who come to the United States illegally in search of a better life for their children “broke the law, but it’s not a felony. It’s an act of love.” This time the potential 2016 candidate put it differently. “To be young and

Under the administration of President Obama, as never before in my lifetime, there is reason to be a bit afraid of the federal government. I have written two books documenting Obama´s abuses of power, his assaults on the Constitution, his wars against business and energy, his abominably reckless spending, his divisiveness, his renegade Justice Department, his regulatory expansion, his executive orders, his overall lawlessness, and more. Obama´s conduct concerning Obamacare alone would be enough to get the impeachment wheels rolling for any other president. His flagrant, deliberate lies regarding almost every aspect of that

Coming clearly through the throbbing of helicopters and the roar of the SUVS of the feds harassing the Cliven Bundy Ranch, patriots there for Bundy should “tell it to the judge”. There is mainstream media-suppressed case history in Nevada the feds are desperately trying to keep under wraps. Chief Judge Robert C. Jones of the Federal District Court of Nevada smacked down high-handed, abusive feds, sending the pretend cowboys riding roughshod over Western ranchers and property owners back to their cobweb-laced offices in 2013. In spite of their 200 armed snipers with boy toys in tow, those Stetson-wearing feds hunkering down on Cliven
