Obama Removes "Under God" From Lincoln's Gettysburg Address
Larry O'Conner writes at Breitbart.com:
Washington DC talk show host Chris Plante reported today that Barack Obama omitted the words "under God" from the Gettysburg Address when reciting the great speech for a Ken Burns documentary.
Burns had filmed all living presidents as well as various Hollywood personalities and luminaries to pay homage to the speech which was delivered by Abraham Lincoln 150 years ago, today.
Plante broke the story on Washington DC talk radio station WMAL on his mid-morning program, "The Chris Plante Show."
As WMAL reports:"Curiously, however, in his version of the address, President Obama omitted the words 'under God'."
This all-important language "under God" -- recognizing the reality that human freedom has its center of gravity in the Creator (see the Declaration of Independence) and not in the state, and thereby protecting "We, the People" from the dictators and tyrannies of human history -- occurs in the following sentence of the unmanipulated Gettysburg Address: "That this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom."
Here is a YouTube video of Obama's misreading of Lincoln's Gettysburg address. His omission occurs at the 1:34 mark).
If one's goal is to "fundamentally transform" America, one sure way to do so is to remove the foundation of America. A house of freedom lacking the foundation of freedom cannot stand.
Extremism can be packaged in many ways. Today's radicals may be hoping that a suit and tie amid the trusted trappings of the U.S. presidency will do the trick. Critical thinking on behalf of sales resistance, intelligence, and freedom -- "under God" -- revolts.
