It is difficult to outdo Congressman Lt. Col. Allen West when he is in expression-of-totally-appropriate-outrage mode. This is especially the case for the ever more frequent situations of U.S. officials — particularly Barack Obama — shamelessly genuflecting regarding whatever the latest situation is that perpetually-outraged Muslims have decided they’re outraged about.
A recent statement by Congressman West responded to Obama’s groveling related to an accidental burning by U.S. troops of Korans (which were being defaced by Muslim prisoners writing in them in order to communicate incendiary messages). The statement includes, among other things, the following: “Instead here we go again, offering apology after apology and promising to ‘hold those responsible accountable.’ Responsible for what? When tolerance becomes a one-way street it leads to cultural suicide.”
(Presidential candidate and former U.S. Senator Rick Santorum has also offered criticism of the apology by Obama, a Muslim-sired-and-raised former community organizer and long-time member of the “church” presided over by anti-Semitic and anti-white “reverend” Jeremiah Wright.)
In any case, Congressman West actually appears to have been done one better, by an individual named Kira Davis, who has created something of a YouTube viral sensation with a homemade four-minute video called “My Apology to President Karzai on Behalf of Americans.” Released just five days ago, the video already has over 589,000 views.
Davis describes herself on her website as “an actress, writer, blogger and talker. I am also a mother, wife, proud American and black conservative who is concerned about the nation’s shift away from traditional American values and Constitutional principles.”
In the “apology” video, Davis is unabashedly sarcastic and disgusted, not only with Obama’s groveling, but in general with the level of chutzpah that Americans would have anything to apologize for to a country as ungrateful and as generally culturally despicable as Afghanistan is.
Early in the video, for example, Davis (in part sarcastically) says “… I was outraged too, and I’d like to express my sincere apologies. I’m sorry, President Karzai. I am sorry that your penchant for raising and harboring terrorist enemies of the United States has made it necessary for us to be in your crappy, corrupt, backwards country for as long as we’ve been there.”
After that, she adds: “I am sorry that the politically correct, ‘Blame America First’ crowd has so infected our military operations that the rules of engagement make it impossible for us to just quickly level the bad guys there and get out.”
Shortly thereafter, she adds: “I’m sorry that you run a nation of men who would kill and have killed over the printed words on a page, but have no problem whatsoever with sewing a 12-year-old girl’s vagina shut so she can’t ‘sin,’ and beheading homosexuals.”
Davis concludes by saying: “Mostly, President Karzai, I’m sorry that we don’t have a leader with enough balls to tell you to take your fake moral outrage and your terrorist sensibility and shove them both where the sun don’t shine … and I’m not talking about those caves you house the Taliban in. I’m sorry. I’m so, so sorry.”
There is much, much more. Really, the video (only four minutes long) must be watched. And probably re-watched. And probably forwarded.
