A boy named Harold
Harold was a bright child. He grew up in America. He went to school
and had a bright future ahead of him.
Harold was full of life but was cut short in a violent moment. While
few people had ever heard of Harold before his death, many did
afterward. And in death, something very shocking happened. What was so
shocking, especially when it is compared to the death of someone else
recently in the news?
Harold was Harold Greene, Major General, United States Army.
On Aug. 5, 2014, Major General Greene was killed by a Taliban
terrorist. He was returned to America with full military honors.
It has been a tradition that the president attends the funeral of
general and flag officers killed in the line of duty.
Richard Nixon attended the funeral of a major general killed in
Vietnam and George W. Bush attended the funeral of Lieutenant General
Timothy Maude, who was killed in the 9/11 attacks.
While Major General Greene was buried, Barack Obama was golfing. The
vice president wasn't there either. Neither was the secretary of
defense. Flags were not even lowered half mast. Four days after
Harold Greene gave his life for America, Michael Brown was killed in
Ferguson, Missouri. Brown was at best a thug. In the minutes before
his death, he committed a robbery at a local convenience store.
According to other reports, Brown struck Officer Darren Wilson and
shattered his orbital bone.
Obama sent a three-person delegation to Brown's funeral! Obama would
not attend the funeral of the highest ranking military officer
killed in the line of duty since 9/11, yet he sent a delegation to
the funeral of a thug.
When Margaret Thatcher, one of America's staunchest allies and
Ronald Reagan's partner in bringing down Soviet communism, died,
Obama sent only a small low-level delegation to her funeral.
The snub was not missed by then British.
When Chris Kyle, the most lethal American sniper in history was
murdered, there was no expression of sympathy from the White House.
But when Whitney Houston died from drug overdose, Obama ordered all
flags be flown at half mast.
There was no White House delegation at the funeral of an American
hero. American heroes die and Obama goes to the golf course. A thug
dies and he gets a WhiteHouse delegation.
No wonder most "REAL" Americans hold
Obama in such contempt, especially members of our Military.
And the only difference between Obama and
Hillary is that she doesn't play golf.
