Obama's Subservient Bow

In recent months I have been blogging about the American republic's failure. Republicanism requires an informed citizenry and a committed culture. America's citizenry is ill-educated and bamboozled by "progressive"-dominated cultural institutions. American schools graduate illiterates who cannot grasp basic political issues, such as the central bank, that 19th century Americans with elementary educations had no trouble grasping. American education emphasizes Marx and Keynes, but ignores Locke and Jefferson.

As a result, medieval patterns appropriate to the Renaissance and before have recrudesced, and Americans have become comfortable with increasingly socialist values. Aristocrats like the Kennedys, the Bushes and the Clintons increasingly dominate politics. The two political parties represent charity and privilege, the two medieval political forces (church or charity and king or privilege). There is no individualist, freedom-based alternative. Thus, the philosophy that guided once-free America is dead and gone. In the view of today's neo-medieval politicians and social theorists, regulaton is preferable to freedom. Group authority and suppression are desirable, freedom is not.

The latest demonstration of America's increasingly medieval mindset and its betrayal of American republicanism is seen in Barack Obama's willingness to literally kowtow and bow to a foreign king. Not surprisingly, the media, which kowtows to Obama just as Obama kowtows to a king, has not covered this story. Obama does not display the spirit of a free American. He does not know what an American is. And the American news media does not know what a free press is.

Take a look at the repugnant video below, courtesy of Newsmax.

Obama, the President of the United States and leader of the free world, bows to a Saudi King who represents a despotic regime noted for its’ human rights violations, a birthplace of terrorists, a symbol of everything that is an antithesis to our system of government, and it’s no big deal?

I consider myself fortunate to have been born in a republic. I appreciate that as a citizen of a republic, I need not bow to any man or woman. We are all created equal, and blood lines do not make one person superior. This gesture by Obama should rankle every citizen for when Obama bowed as President of the United States, we all bowed.

He did bow, see the video from the latest angle:
