Obama: Master of Irony

Posted by penuruloki on June 29, 2009

There’s another great article up on Powerline that shouldn’t be missed. The greatest irony though, comes from our own current President:

“”I am deeply concerned by reports coming out of Honduras regarding the detention and expulsion of President Mel Zelaya. As the Organization of American States did on Friday, I call on all political and social actors in Honduras to respect democratic norms, the rule of law and the tenets of the Inter-American Democratic Charter. Any existing tensions and disputes must be resolved peacefully through dialogue free from any outside interference.”

Of course, what you’re not supposed to understand when you read that quote, is that the Honduran military expelled President Zelaya by order of the Honduran Supreme court, as he sought to circumvent the law, and hold an illegal election to stay in power, with assistance from Venezuela.

Lets look at that quote again, with a little more ink:

“”I am deeply concerned by reports coming out of Honduras regarding the detention and expulsion of President Mel Zelaya.”

No surprised that Obama lines up to support the same people as Chavez, Castro and the other Latin American dictators.

“As the Organization of American States did on Friday, I call on all political and social actors in Honduras to respect democratic norms, the rule of law and the tenets of the Inter-American Democratic Charter. Any existing tensions and disputes must be resolved peacefully through dialogue free from any outside interference.”

Obama doesn’t need to call on Honduran patriots or their political actors to do any of this. They’re already doing it by removing Zelaya before he consolidates power and becomes a true tyrant. The Honduran military is taking their cues straight from their Supreme Court and elected legislature. It’s the exact reverse of the old military dictarships. This time they’re defending the people and their rights.

Someone’s defending the people’s right to free government? And it’s the military no less? There’s two reasons why Obama is pissed off. The rest of us should be cheering them on, and disgusted by our own government.
