We've had eight years of putative "conservatives" extolling the glories of war and Empire. Now the avatar of Change(TM) arrives, incessantly invoking Abraham Lincoln while his idolaters summon forth the memory of St. FDR.
Stalin accurately noted that the death of one person is a tragedy, the death of a million is a statistic. Remember, then, the names of these men murdered by Obama's role models:
- Sgt. William Walker (1864). Sgt. Walker was a member of the 3rd South Carolina Volunteers, a "colored" regiment. He was court-martialed and executed at Hilton Head, SC, for leading a mutiny of Black soldiers who refused to fight unless they were given equal pay to White soldiers. Walker was shot in front of the entire company, as an example to others.
- Pvt. Edward Donald "Eddie" Slovik (1945). Eddie Slovik was murdered by the US Government for being a runaway slave. FDR lied and manipulated the US into the Second World War, then conscripted vast numbers of men, including Slovik, to kill and be killed, maim and be maimed, in the service of those lies. Slovik didn't want to kill (he asked for hazardous non-combatant duty, such as medic) so he had to die, as an example to others.
