After Ignoring It for 5 Years, Obama Suddenly Remembered D-Day

By Eowyn @DrEowyn

I woke up this morning to the alphabet TV news bleating on about the POS at a D-Day ceremony in Normandy Beach.

What his accomplices in the media won’t tell you is that THIS IS THE FIRST TIME Obama has commemorated D-Day.

This is from my post of June 6 a year ago, “Obama Forgot D-Day, Again“:

UPDATE (6.7.2013): I’m recycling this post from 2012 because nothing’s changed. Once again, Obama failed to mark the 69th anniversary of D-Day with either a speech or a written proclamation. Instead, he flew to the San Francisco Bay Area, where he held two fundraisers with fat-cat donors in Palo Alto and Portola Valley.

UPDATE (6.6.12): I’m recycling this post from 2010 because nothing’s changed. Today, once again, Obama failed to mark the 68th anniversary of D-Day with either a speech or a written proclamation. Instead, he’s on his way to San Francisco, where he will hold two fundraisers before moving on to Beverly Hills to stage two more.

UPDATE (6.6.11): I’m recycling this post from last year because nothing’s changed. Once again, Obama had forgotten that today is the anniversary of D-Day!

And here’s the original post from June 7, 2010, which I had recycled three times:

After ignoring it for 5 years, Obama suddenly remembered D-Day

Landing at Omaha Beach, Normandy, June 6, 1944

Yesterday was June 6.

Sixty-six years ago, June 6, 1944, was D-Day – the day of the beginning of the Normandy landings when US and Allied soldiers stormed the beaches of Normandy, France, to free Europe from the grip of Hitler and the Nazis.

The operation was the largest amphibious invasion of all time, with over 160,000 troops landing along a 50-mile stretch of the Normandy coast divided into five sectors: Utah, Omaha, Gold, Juno and Sword.

The Allied casualties figures for D-Day have generally been estimated at 10,000, including 2,500 dead. Broken down by nationality, the usual D-Day casualty figures are approximately 2700 British, 946 Canadians, and 6603 Americans. However recent painstaking research by the US National D-Day Memorial Foundation has achieved a more accurate – and much higher – figure for the Allied personnel who were killed on D-Day. They have recorded the names of individual Allied personnel killed on 6 June 1944 in Operation Overlord, and so far they have verified 2499 American D-Day fatalities and 1915 from the other Allied nations, a total of 4414 dead (much higher than the traditional figure of 2500 dead). Further research may mean that these numbers will increase slightly in future. [Source]

The Normandy invasion began on June 4 and ended in mid-July, 1944, with a decisive Allied victory. It marked the beginning of the end of Nazi Germany and the European theater of WWII. Were it not for all those brave men, so many of whom sacrificed their very lives, we’d all be living under the yoke of the Third Reich.

But our so-called president could not be bothered to even mention, even less to honor, our fallen heroes. Instead, he was busy partying it up at the Annual Gala of the Ford’s Theater Society in Washington, D.C., his second party of the week:

This year, 2014 — Obama’s 6th year as President and Commander In Chief — is different.

Suddenly, the POS discovered that June 6 is the anniversary of D-Day.

Instead of going to a gala or winging his way on Air Force One to a fund-raiser, the POS actually was in Normandy Beach to remember D-Day.

As USA Today reports, Obama told the story of D-Day at the cemetery above Omaha Beach, calling it “this sacred place of rest for 9,387 Americans,” and  honored the D-Day veterans who “gave so much for the survival of liberty at its maximum peril” during World War II. America’s claim to liberty “is written in the blood on these beaches. It will endure for centuries. Omaha — Normandy — this was democracy’s beachhead.”

Blah. Blah. Blah.

Wanna know why all of a sudden, AFTER 5 YEARS OF IGNORING D-DAY, Obama suddenly discovered D-Day?

Answer:

V. A. Hospital Scandal

This is how serious VA-gate is.

See:

  • Veterans die while waiting for MONTHS to see a doctor at VA hospitals
  • Veterans’ bodies left to rot in L.A. morgue
