Barack Hussein Obama would make the whole world love us, moonbats promised. Now our rivals openly despise us, and our friends are getting sick of the insults.
Poland’s foreign minister has demanded Barack Obama apologise after referring to “Polish death camps” during the Second World War.
The US President made the slip while honouring Jan Karski, a Polish resistance fighter who was among the first to raise the alarm over the Nazi concentration camps, during a ceremony at the White House.
Diplomatically, this could be compared to raising doubts about whether the Holocaust really happened at a ceremony to honor its victims.
Poland has long been sensitive to any implication that it was involved in the Holocaust, accurately pointing out that the camps on Polish soil were run by occupying German forces.
Foreign Minister Radek Sikorsi took to Twitter to insist that the White House apologise for the “outrageous error” and said that Prime Minister Donald Tusk would make a statement on Wednesday morning.
“It’s a pity that this important ceremony was upstaged by ignorance and incompetence,” he wrote.
At least there’s a silver lining; many Americans have come to understand that President of the USA is not an entry-level position that should be assigned on an Affirmative Action basis.
