Why Obama won't be going to Berlin next week
After listening to the last few minutes of Ronald Reagan's "tear down this wall" speech to the people of West Berlin, I realized why Barack Hussein Obama will not be in Germany next Monday to mark the 20th anniversary of the Fall of the Berlin Wall.
Marxists build walls, they don't tear them down.
Marxists build walls between rich and poor. Marxists build walls between right and left. Marxists build walls between doctor and patient. Marxists build walls between race, creed, color, gender, generation, and even against life itself.
Marxism is not about the love of freedom . . . it is the opposite. In three days, Berlin will be glowing with the light of love that Reagan so eloquently spoke about in his Berlin speech. Obama will be somewhere in the shadows, designing more ways to build walls and more ways to destroy our nation.
Listen to Reagan and see if you agree:
"Perhaps this gets to the root of the matter, to the most fundamental distinction of all between East and West. The totalitarian world produces backwardness because it does such violence to the spirit, thwarting the human impulse to create, to enjoy, to worship. The totalitarian world finds even symbols of love and of worship an affront. Years ago, before the East Germans began rebuilding their churches, they erected a secular structure: the television tower at Alexander Platz. Virtually ever since, the authorities have been working to correct what they view as the tower's one major flaw, treating the glass sphere at the top with paints and chemicals of every kind. Yet even today when the sun strikes that sphere--that sphere that towers over all Berlin--the light makes the sign of the cross. There in Berlin, like the city itself, symbols of love, symbols of worship, cannot be suppressed."
