Secret border control agent, Iowa congressman, and “man trying to forget what he buried in that cornfield” Steve King (R) says President Obama doesn’t appreciate the Star Spangled Banner the way you and I do because he may not be from around these parts.
“His vision of America isn’t like our vision of America. That we know,” King said about Obama at an immigration rally in Council Bluffs, Iowa, according to Buzzfeed.
“Now I don’t assert where he was born, I will just tell you that we are all certain that he was not raised with an American experience,” King continued. “So these things that beat in our hearts when we hear the National Anthem and when we say the Pledge of Allegiance doesn’t beat the same for him.”
It makes sense that someone who doesn’t appreciate the national anthem or pledge of alliance would volunteer to lead an ungrateful nation, doesn’t it? Maybe his apparent love for his country is actually part of a delicate ruse. Maybe his willingness to compromise and work to improve the lives of those who voted against him and hate him is only a stepping stone toward usurping all power.
Maybe his willingness to endure unprecedented obstruction, racism, unrelenting conspiracy theories, and a self-interested, bumbling press corps every single day is his own way of demonstrating that he doesn’t appreciate his position as commander in chief.
If he’s willing to suffer the likes of Steve King on his way toward destroying the nation he’s clearly more patient than I am. If I was an all-scheming tyrant I probably would have disappeared him by now or, at the very least, taped a kick-me sign to his back.
