British PM Brown and Obama Make the Ultimate Insult To Real Americans

Obama and Europe's elitist socialists had the audacity to publicly mark the anniversary of the 'D' Day invasion.

First of all it's an insult to have a modern socialist liberal attending the celebration of American citizen-solider glory and sacrifice, but for that socialist liberal to be an impostor posing as President of the country these heroes died defending is completely unacceptable.

To make matters excruciating, sphincter muscle British PM Brown referred to Omaha Beach as Obama Beach.

One bit of appropriate irony, is that the invasion was code named 'Overlord', and there was a socialist overlord in attendance. The other point of irony is that here is a fascist honoring men who fought and died to defeat another fascist.

NORMANDY, France – President Barack Obama marked the 65th anniversary of the early-morning D-Day landings by saluting 9,000 Americans, many of them teenagers, who fell in a chaotic, terrifying sneak assault that would "change the course of an entire century."

The ceremony – a solemn tribute, but also a celebration of American grit – was held in the serenity of the seaside Normandy American Cemetery and Memorial. Row on row of white gravestones – mostly crosses, with a few Stars of David – were each marked by little U.S. and French flags.

One of the president's honored guests – Jim Norene, a member of the 502nd Parachute Infantry Regiment of the 101st Airborne – didn't make it.

"Last night, after visiting this cemetery for one last time, he passed away in his sleep," Obama told a solemn crowd of vets stretching farther than most eyes can see. "Jim was gravely ill when he left his home, and he knew that he might not return. But just as he did sixty-five years ago, he came anyway. May he now rest in peace with the boys he once bled with, and may his family always find solace in the heroism he showed here."

The president was accompanied by Michelle Obama. Also onstage were French President Nicolas Sarkozy, Britain's Prince Charles and Prime Minister Gordon Brown, and Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper.

In Brown's remarks, he referred to "Obama Beach," then corrected himself to "Omaha Beach" a few words later, after a stir in the crowd.

Brown may have been confused by the French tabloid Liberation, which marked the president's visit by splashing an "Obama Beach" on the cover of its weekend edition.

The ceremony began with the national anthems of France, Canada, the United Kingdom and the United States.

While the crowd waited, a program over the loudspeakers included last letters home from those who fell at D-Day, including one young man who began "Hey, folks," and another who wrote: "Tell dad I'm giving 'em hell for him. . I wrote Betty a letter ... Keep her cheered up."

Behind the presidential podium was a row of World War II veterans who had struggled to the ceremony in wheelchairs and on walkers, many for the last time. But the vets were hardy enough to sit for several hours in bright sunshine, shielded with navy-blue golf umbrellas while they waited for the president to arrive.

"In the face of a merciless assault from these cliffs, you could have idled the boats offshore," Obama said. "Amid a barrage of tracer bullets that lit the night sky, you could have stayed in those planes. You could have hid in the hedgerows or waited behind the sea wall. .

"At an hour of maximum danger, amid the bleakest of circumstances, men who thought themselves ordinary found it within themselves to do the extraordinary. They fought for their moms and sweethearts back home, for the fellow warriors they came to know as brothers. And they fought out of a simple sense of duty – a duty sustained by the same ideals for which their countrymen had fought and bled for over two centuries."

Obama spoke of "the memories that have been passed on to so many of us about the service or sacrifice of a friend or relative."

"For me, it is my grandfather, Stanley Dunham, who arrived on this beach six weeks after D-Day and marched across Europe in Patton's Army," he said. "And it is my great uncle, who was part of the first American division to reach and liberate a Nazi concentration camp. His name is Charles Payne, and I am so proud that he is here with us today."

Payne had flown in from his Chicago home as part of a congressional delegation.

As the seats filled up, a couple of young boys went around with an autograph book, collecting the signatures of aged warriors.

One veteran jokingly barked commands for one last time, trying to readjust a crowded section: "Slide down! Ready, front!"

The code name for the D-Day landings was "Operation Overlord." But because of a popular book and movie, history's largest amphibious assault is widely known as "The Longest Day."
