Boycott BO By HJS

HJS Comments: If you believe this usually pro-American editor is out of line, then perhaps we should request that he get in line—with all the other decent people who, unlike the president, believe in America, American Exceptionalism, and in the great American Constitution that was here before he arrived, and will be here when he leaves, Insh’allah.

Barack Obama has made me want to boycott America

Obama has refused to support British sovereignty in the Falklands
The special relationship is over. We gave America years of unwavering support after September 11. And now we see how Barack Obama’s administration repays us.
 First, Obama declared that America was “neutral” over the sovereignty of the Falklands, ignoring the clear wishes of the islands’ population. And, second, his Assistant Secretary of State, Philip Crowley, snubbed Britain by failing to use their proper name and instead calling them the “Malvinas”.
I don’t know where Obama learned about diplomacy, but his stinks. I’m normally pro-American, but Mr Obama’s seeming support for Argentinian aggressors, who have no legitimate claim over the Falklands, is gratuitously offensive. So from today, I’m boycotting America as a tourist destination. This summer, I’ll be going to France, not California.
Let me be clear: I’m not normally in favour of boycotts, and I love the American people. I holiday in their country regularly, and hate the tedious snobby sneers against the United States.
But the American people chose to elect an idiot who seems hell bent on insulting their allies, and something must be done to stop Obama’s reckless foreign policy, before he does the dirty on his allies on every issue.
If our American friends want to stop Obama shredding the respect the rest of the planet has towards America, they need to stop Obama’s destructive policies – and fast.
