Obama Obliterates Civil Rights Icon Aung San Suu Kyi’s Name Several Times During Brief Speech (Video)

In Burma today, Barack Obama repeatedly butchered democracy icon Aung San Suu Kyi’s name during his remarks to the press as she was standing right next to him.

Here’s the video:

Of course, the Obama-media will give him a complete pass on this.

    Siding with Burma illustrates Obama’s lack of respect for freedom and humanity.

    This president may be black and thus suggestive of civil rights, but that is a deception (as should more and more suspected and assumed). In truth he is establishing himself as an opponent of real human rights.

    Obama was however careful to call the Country “Burma” rather than “Myanmar”. There is a meaningful international dispute which underlies this.

    “[Wikipedia] In 1989 the military government officially changed the English translations of many colonial-era names; among these changes was the alteration of the name of the country to “Myanmar”. The renaming remains a contested issue. Many political and ethnic opposition groups and countries continue to use “Burma” because they do not recognise the legitimacy of the ruling military government or its authority to rename the country.”

    Obama got the name of the country right and for the right reasons – but big fail on the name of the patriot Burmese standing right next to him.

    Just one more brick on the load. Obama demonstrates regularly that he only cares about things he thinks are “big f’n deals.” He also regularly shows disregard for individuals whose deaths he can casually shrug off as “bumps in the road” and whose identities he can blithely belittle by not bothering to pay attention to their names.

    In Asia, outside appearance is extremely important. No self-respecting representative (business, government, even social friend) not one, would speak public words without getting the pronunciation of their subject’s name right. If even a low-level diplomat did something like this, it would be almost an international incident, an embarrassment to both countries, and could end their career.

    Unless this is intentional (and Obama is well-known for committing insulting gestures), it’s simply another sign of incompetence, insincerity, and perhaps inner distractions. Aung Suu Kyi is probably humiliated, and as an American I’m embarrassed and apologetic. May this man be rewarded for all that he does and does not do.

    Best regards, Peter Warner.

    With all the hugging and kissing, one would have thought Bill Clinton was president again.

    I expect Michelle to have obama’s testicles in a jar when he gets back.

    Before the election, WND had a couple of articles about a house being built for Obama in Hawaii. They concluded he expected to lose the election and retire there…


    I think they drew the wrong conclusion. I think the ‘retirement plan’ was just a cover story. I think he is preparing a major shift for his second term. He’s going to remove himself from the problems in DC with its gritty politics and run the country from Hawaii like an emperor, making it the de facto capital.

    I think Obama is going to set up a ‘western White House’ in Hawaii and run the country from there. He will send down high-handed dictates and orders to Washington, and let the Congress and the Supreme Court fight it out. He will not get his hands dirty with the political mix which he despises, he will not be blamed for anything, and his fingerprints will not be on anything.

    Obama prepared the ground for this with one of his campaign themes: you cannot change Washington from Washington.

    This move would fit neatly into the renewal of interest in the Pacific region that has been signaled in a recent spate of articles announcing a strategic pivot from the Middle East to the Pacific. Hillary’s been making a lot of Asia trips. A mid-Pacific White House would be regarded as visionary by the press. Wile Europe is in deep economic trouble, some Asian countries are rising strongly, and not just China but Australia and India.

    Additionally, members of the elite media will LOVE being stationed in Hawaii. They will love him for this. Access to Obama himself, which is already nearly nonexistent will become even more tightly controlled on the island. Everything in Hawaii will seem sunny and happy — the optics will be opposite what is going on on the mainland.

    And when he deigns to visit the mainland where will he go? Not to the crumbling heartland, or to the bickering DC political structures. He will go to Los Angeles and Las Vegas where he is already a king.

    Of course he mispronounced the name. He doesn’t even bother to practice his pre-written speeches. And he was so hot to get out of the country, he just grabbed TOTUS and ran!

    The kind of people you should just love doing business with. So SCREW the socialistic a-holes that voted obama AND the ignorant a-holes who didn’t vote because Romney wasn’t who they wanted as their candidate.

    remember the grief bush got for putting his hands on merkel’s shoulders ? now we have barry all but slipping the tongue to a world leader and we’re supposed to find it charming. it’s disgusting and an embarrassment.

    Re #15 was I ever wrong. Here’s the Puffington Host later today:


    “President Barack Obama used that name during his historic visit Monday, but he also called Burma what its government and many other people have been calling it for years: Myanmar . . . The issue is so sensitive that Obama’s aides had said earlier Monday he would likely avoid mentioning either politically charged name. But he used both during his six-hour trip – “Myanmar” during morning talks with Thein Sein, “Burma” afterward while visiting with opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi.”

    So we observe this president as ego-unable to pay attention to aides who are more informed than he (and who must now explain why Obama’s actual statements “don’t change anything”).

    And, sadly, once again we see this president is spinally-unable to speak truth to power.

  • but he’s the greatest orator in the history of the world!

  • mcashc

    Remember when the Lame Screed Media howled when GW Bush used a malappropism?

    I guess this is different. He only has the entire State Department to advise on protocol and name pronunciation.

    When Law and Order Break Down: “People Are Afraid Right Now. You Can See It In Their Faces.”

    Cities from coast-to-coast are facing unprecedented budget deficits that have left government officials with no choice but to strip police forces to a bare minimum. We now regularly hear about new ‘records’ being broken in the resulting crime waves that follow.

    Law enforcement officials in Chicago, for example, have said that their city has deteriorated into a domestic war zone with gang violence leaving scores of people dead on a regular basis. Murder, rape, robbery and assault have skyrocketed in bankrupt Stockton, California, suggesting that local governments are quickly losing control.

    In New Jersey, the city of Camden may soon be granted the dubious distinction of being the poorest and most violent city in America.

    On a walkway 20 feet away, a middle-aged man lies dead, shot in the throat and head, sprawled on his back beside a battered 10-speed bicycle. His face is masked in blood that gleams bright red in the crime scene photographer’s flash.

    Johnson watches tight-lipped as investigators comb the grass for shell casings. “Kids play out here. Average people live here,” he says. “I’m shaking. It’s getting too close.”

    Gunfire rings out often in the neighborhood, he says, a regular reminder of the crime wave that has this city of 77,000 on pace to double its homicides in just three years, and has already shattered a nearly 20-year record for killings.

    With 59 homicides so far this year, the murder rate is on par with levels seen in Haiti in the chaotic aftermath of the 2010 earthquake.

    “A bullet has no name. If somebody shoots and I’m walking, I could be hit,” Johnson says. “People are afraid right now. You can see it in their faces.”

    The crime surge coincides with new census data identifying Camden, long battered by vanishing industry, as the most impoverished city in the U.S., with 42 percent of residents under the poverty line, and an average family income of $21,191. If trends persist, Camden may soon hold the grim title of both the country’s poorest and most dangerous city.

    As local, state and federal officials in the United States realize the reality of our fiscal and economic situations, they will be forced to make serious cuts in areas that have become essential to the American way of life.

    Personal safety, food security, health care and critical public services will inevitably be sacrificed as across-the-board austerity measures become the norm, not the exception.

    Impoverishment will lead to desperation and anger, which in turn leads to “nothing left to lose” attitudes and a rise in violence and criminal activity.

    The system is broke. The mathematics are simple. There is not enough money to go around. What we are seeing in Chicago, Detroit, Stockton and Camden is going to spread.
