The banned petition:

we petition the obama administration to:

rescind invite to Gangnam Style rapper PSY to perform for Pres. Obama at Christmas party over troop killing song lyrics

We request President Obama rescind his invitation to the Gangnam Style rapper PSY to perform for him at the Christmas in Washington celebration this month because of the rapper's vicious anti-American song lyrics. In 2004, PSY reportedly performed a song entitled, Dear America, that contained the following lyrics (profanity edited): "Kill those f***ing Yankees who have been torturing Iraqi captives Kill those f***ing Yankees who ordered them to torture Kill their daughters, mothers, daughters-in-law, and fathers Kill them all slowly and painfully " As commander-in-chief, how can Pres. Obama honor someone who calls for killing our troops and their families?

Hussein is itching to have a photo-op of him doing the ganham dance.

It will happen. You will see it.

Prepare your barf bags in advance.

So another-words, speaking out against a rapper whose song champions killing our troops, is against White House policy.

What more do I need to know?

look at all of Obama’s friends & associates. They, and he, all hate America and everything about it. Capitalism, Christianity, Western Civilization in general.

This Psy fool would fit perfectly in the Obama Administration..hate America piece of garbage. I never got into the whole craze of seeing an idiot hop around like a horse..Obama will welcome him in with open arms and high five him for hating America so much but having NO issue making American dollars

Probably because none of the ambassadors looked like one of Obama’s sons or Holder’s people.

Gangnam Style sounds like the Democrat Party style. He should feel very welcome at Obama’s ball.

He should give the Democrat Party’s Key Note address.

So once again Zero is violating our rights.

He should be charged with violating his oath of office over this.

I agree ,,, But our system is very corrupt today . He has Holder and the Justice Dept. in his back pocket . Boehner and the rest of the spineless wimps in congress are afraid of 0bama and the Media and being labeled racist . The pot is getting very warm and the frog remains very still . Next to come is the count down to some type of civil unrest I suppose . 0 seems to have prepared for this already with his many executive orders etc . Seems we sure as hell can’t depend on congress to pull our fannies from the fire so every American today is basically left to fend for themselves . Rome is burning and the Fire Dept. is on a doughnut run . Greece is the future picture I see . Good luck America ,, because luck is all that’s left at this point .

Not really. The Butcher of Benghazi reacted just as fast.

You nailed it. The ONLY reason this guy got invited is because he happens to be anti-American. Talent and popularity were not even considered.

Agreed. It’s much more important to Obama to look cool than be presidential.

As I get tired of saying, “he’s a nine year old boy” trapped in a gender neutral metro-sexual’s body.

Let him bow to him,What he is doing is alienating the military even more. I’d say 90% of the military hates him already. We are going to need some support from our sons and daughters in uniform soon,IMHO, and dumb actions like this just help us.We just need to be sure the word is spread.

Please. We petitioned the government. He pissed on the petition. Nobody's rights are violated by his action. Our first amendment right to petition the government does not guarantee that every petition will be acknowledged, let alone acquiesced.
