Singer and actress Barbra Streisand and filmmaker Steven Spielberg were among 17 Americans who received the honor at a ceremony at the White House.
President Barack Obama awarded the nation's highest civilian honor, the Presidential Medal of Freedom, to a star-studded list of Americans at the White House on Tuesday in honor of their accomplishments in public service, entertainment and sports.
Singer and actress Barbra Streisand and filmmaker Steven Spielberg were among 17 Americans who received the honor a ceremony at the White House.
"Off the stage, [Streisand has] been a passionate advocate for issues like heart disease and women's equality," Obama said in his opening statement. "I'm getting all verklempt just thinking about it," the president quipped in Yiddish.
Hollywood legendary Jewish director Steven Spielberg was the next recipient of the prestigious award, recognized for his contributions to American cinema.
"His story has shaped America's stories, and his values have shaped our world," said Obama of the famous Hollywood director. "Steven's films are marked, most importantly, by a faith in our common humanity. The same faith in humanity that led him to create the Shoah foundation, and lend a voice to survivors of genocide around the world." (cont.)
In addition to Babs and Steven, accompanied by strategically placed, silly "Jewish" humor and the compulsory mention of the Holocaust, recipients included:
He had to fit in quick picks for all of the other minority groups somehow, too, didn't he? Just pick some dead Americans, any dead Americans.
Cuban-American singer Gloria Estefan. Cuban-Americans mostly vote Republican, and Hispanic-Americans, in general, have been moving to the right.
Stephen Sondheim, not only Jewish, but gay, too, in other words extra-PC.
James TaylorBonnie CarrollSen. Barbara Mikulski (D-MD), for what, you ask? Being the longest serving female senator, I suppose.
Former Rep. Lee Hamilton (D-IN)
NASA mathematician Katherine G. Johnson
Former EPA head William Ruckelshaus.
Posthumous honors went to:
Rep. Shirley Chisholm (D-NY), who also served as the U. S. Ambassador to Jamaica
Indian treaty rights advocate Billy Frank, Jr.Japanese-American civil rights activist Minoru Yasui.
That makes 4 out of the 15 recipients Jews. Hmm... I wonder if we will see any reports of the overreaching "Jewish influence" on the U. S. Government because of this. I also wonder if anyone will notice that 4 out of the 15 recipients are, or were, U. S. Government officials.
Now, I am not saying that these Jews did not deserve the recognition for their achievements. I am only saying that it is awfully convenient to take the opportunity to wave the "I Love Jews!" flag.
The ordeal of Jonathan Pollard, and Obama's (and Bush's and Clinton's) failure to grant him clemency, even after serving six times as much time as others, convicted of the same "crimes."
The shameful responses to the killing of Jewish Americans at the hands of Arab terrorists, such as Ezra Schwartz hy"d and Naftali Frankel hy"d. and Koby Mandell hy"d.
American Jews are not just blind to Obama's pandering for their favor. They are blind to the fact that, not to mention the exceedingly unhealthy co-dependence they have on the receiving of love and existential validation from the goyim.
Don't blame U. S. President Obama. He is just doing his job. Being half Yishma'el and half Esau, he has no choice but to want to destroy us, either by allowing us to be killed off by Arabs, or assimilating us completely into Western culture. I don't think that it really matters to him which way.
