I don’t care if this asswipe had the largest YouTube download ever – the fact that he sang Anti-America lyrics should have precluded his appearance in Washington. Of course, other anti-America liberals such as President Obama probably welcomed him with open arms.
A penitent Psy brings ‘Gangnam Style’ to Washington
Psy, the 34-year-old global pop tsunami from South Korea, is here to sing at “Christmas in Washington,” Sunday’s annual televised charity concert at the National Building Museum. The first family has attended the gig for the past 30 Decembers. The president sits front and center. This requires the artists to carol with their hearts thrumming in their throats.
Psy’s heart might pound a little faster. He’s performing for President Obama just 50-odd hours after news spread across the Internet that he sang graphic, anti-American lyrics at a 2004 protest concert.
But backstage, Psy seems supremely calm. In warm, measured tones, he describes his first visit to Washington as “an honor.” He deeply regrets those words he sang all those years ago. And if this weekend’s media spasm ends up crashing his stateside stardom even faster than it was built? “I deserve it,” he says.
In 2002, Psy punctuated a performance by smashing a model of a U.S. Bradley Fighting Vehicle. The gesture was a response to an accident in which a U.S. military vehicle struck and killed two teenage girls outside of Seoul. In 2004, he performed “Dear American,” a song by South Korean metal band N.E.X.T. that called for the killing of U.S. soldiers and their families.
Bottom line …
The asswipe called for the killing of American soldiers. And I do not forgive him for that anymore than I forgive traitor Jane Fonda for sitting on a Vietnamese anti-aircraft weapon and suggesting American soldiers should surrender.
There should be no honoring or supporting anyone who promotes the killing of American soldiers under any conditions. The fact that this asswipe was honored because he has a catchy tune is disgusting.
