Obama to Visit Hiroshima as New Gen. Douglas MacArthur Book Lands on Bestseller List

by Christopher N. Malagisi

Douglas MacArthur

Bestseller List is for week of May 12-18, 2016

WASHINGTON, DC – While President Obama announces his plans to visit Hiroshima, Japan – the site of the first dropped atomic bomb that helped end WWII, a new biography of Gen. Douglas MacArthur lands on the Conservative Bestseller List.  MacArthur was the general responsible for American WWII military operations in the Pacific theater.  Book: MacArthur at War: WWII in the Pacific, by Walter Borneman.

President Obama has claimed his visit to Hiroshima is fulfilling a promise he made early on in his presidency and would be a vehicle in which to discuss the dangers of nuclear warfare.  Critics though say this is really an extension of the president’s never-ending “international tour of apology” for perceived American transgressions.  This would be the first time a US president has visited Hiroshima since WWII.

“In light of the infamous Iran nuclear deal, it seems President Obama is visiting Hiroshima to cement a legacy of nuclear disarmament,” said Christopher N. Malagisi, Editor in Chief of the Conservative Book Club.  “It’s important to remember though the sacrifice of the brave service men and women who died in the WWII Pacific theater by not dishonoring their legacy with a perceived apology for ending a war that was not started by the US, and potentially saved tens of thousands of American soldiers’ lives.”

    The voters who put this America hater in office need to apologize to the American veterans who fought with honor and dignity to protect American freedom. These creatures from Japan bombed us first. Obama went to a church for many years with a pastor who preached nothing but hatred towards America. His grandparents were members of the communist party until the day they died. He also started his campaign with a fundraiser by the name of Bill Ayers, who by the way is a known terrorist. Ayers bombed the basement of the World Trade Center the first time. The media by the way chose back then to cover up these facts. INFURIATING!!!! This is the person the voters chose to put in office. In seven years, this rodent has managed to destroy everything that American blood and treasure has fought so hard to protect. For this thing to apologize to the world for the Americans ending Hitler’s reign of terror and all the other wonderful things that these men and women have done makes Obama a terrorist. He is a traitor. You know what they did to traitors back in the day! The media is at it again this time with a corrupt, worthless hag named Hillary Clinton. The country is gone is Trump does not get elected in November. I cannot wait until January when Obama is booted out of the White House. His legacy of being the worst president of all time will speak for itself!

    If president POS apologises to Japan for the use of Fat Man and the Little Boy to end WWII, he needs to immediately be arrested, removed from office and executed by firing squad. No excuses, no ifs, ands or buts PERIOD.

    STOP THE APOLOGY TOUR ALREADY….IT IS THE PHONIEST GIMMICK EVER TRIED BY A PRESIDENT, AND DOES NOTHING TO CREATE A STRONG IMAGE AS A LEADER OF THE FREE WORLD, WHICH THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA ALWAYS PORTRAYED. MOREOVER, YOU CAN SEE WHAT EFFECT IT HAS HAD ON OUR RELATIONS WITH OTHER COUNTRIES AND THERE LEADERS, ENOUGH ALREADY…..
