“I Am a Doughnut Hole”

Obama is scheduled for yet another speech at Berlin’s Brandenburg Gate.  He’s scheduled it close to the 50th Anniversary of JFK’s speech, which took place in front of Schoenberg Town Hall on June 26, 1963.

“Ich Bin Ein Berliner,” Kennedy told the throngs.  Not quite grammatically correct, according to German linguists, but close enough to win over the adoring crowds.  At the time, in Berlin, there was a popular pastry called “The Berliner.”  He was basically telling the crowds, “I am a donut.”  But they knew what he meant.

“If you are a U.S. person,” Obama told Charlie Rose’s audience, “the NSA cannot listen to your telephone calls and the NSA cannot target your e-mails.”

“And have not,” Charlie interjected.  Was there a slight, mischievous expression in Obama’s eyes as he said those words?  Were the words “Yet” hanging back there, intentionally misleading Americans?  And what the heck did he mean by “U.S. persons?”

John F. Kennedy, in his famous speech, did not say to the people of Berlin, “I am a Berlin person.”  His quote was “I am a Berliner.”  ‘I am with you in your quest for freedom.’  In his last address at the Brandenburg Gate, where Hitler once addressed the throngs, Obama said that he was “a citizen of the world.”  Not quite the same thing.

If Kennedy, in a mistranslation and ignorance of Berlin’s metropolitan culture (how would he knew what a Berliner was besides a resident of Berlin?), told the crowd he was a doughnut, Obama told the world that he’s a doughnut hole:  full of empty promises, vacuous, and ex parte.  Pres. Ronald Reagan would return to Germany and bid Mikhail Gorbachev to “tear down this wall” that separated West (westernized) Berlin from East (Communist) Berlin.

The wall was intended to prevent East Berlin’s citizens from escaping to the free West during the Cold War.  The wall did nothing to contain Communism.  Obama is the doughnut hole, that portal through which Communism, which had been somewhat contained even during Kennedy’s administration, can now freely flow.

His immigration bill will not only make all Americans “citizens of the world” but will make all “citizens of the world” instant Americans, whether they deserve to be or not.
