PSY, born Park Jae-sang, performed at a White House charity event on Sunday, despite a deeply controversial performance in 2004 that has shocked and outraged American fans.

The rapper showed off his signature dance moves while performing 'Gangnam Style,' which has the most watched YouTube video in history.

Always remember the song "We Are the World".....this is globalist Obama's theme song (after "Happy Days are Here Again")

He couldn't find an American rapper who may need the job and the resultant exposure to perform at the White House, could he.

Obama is on an arrogant, self-satisfied high from his win....and watch, everything will be 'in your face' from now, just wait and see. He will be playing with us...as he did by engaging this foreign anti-American entertainer.

This president is a bundle of psychopathy and therefore loony and dangerous in everything he does.

I forgot to add that not only was Obama loath to hire an American citizen to perform in the people's White House, OUR White House, but he had to find a foreign, foul-mouthed, anti-American military low-life to perform.

American troops saved South Korea's a$$ in that war....yet if the president HAD to book a foreigner was there not ONE entertainer inside the borders of our ally South Korea that was pro-America, pro American troops......NOT ONE???

I guess Obama just happened to come up with a person that in the good old days would be considered an undesirable and not fit to enter the United States.

I thought he already PUBLICLY apologized for what he sang (if you can call rapping, singing )?

If his public apology isn’t enough, what should he do before his apology will be acceptable? COMMIT HARA KIRI?

It was a phoney leftist/liberal type apology which didn't really express sorrow, it was just done to make him seem contrite. A big lie.

The libs all accepted it as sincere, as did you.

Many American and NATO troops died to permit South Korea to remain free from North Korean control and invasion, and to get this asshat the right to spew his precious thoughts.

The least he could do is refrain from wishing ill on the very military that kept him from being killed by the North Korean regime, and which continues to do so even today.

However, this is the theme for today. There is no recognition of history, of economics, of morality, of religious practices, or basic human decency and human kindness. We may as well get used to it. It is now Mad Max all the time. It is now all right to wish death and hardship on anyone with whom you disagree.

Where will be the centers of learning and ethics that will preserve the pillars of civilization for a time when the world is once again ready to be civilized? Certainly I will be dead before mankind is ready for it once again.

Well certainly nothing makes this S. Korean pig any different than Obama’s other associate, the un-Rev. Wright and his GD American rants. Just another ungrateful scum from a country which should be deeply appreciative that the USA and its allies wasted their lives so pigs like Psy can spout their hatred of us.

Wright, Van Jones, Anita Dunn, Psy, Bill Ayers, Bernardine Dohrn, his wookie American hating wife,.... all earn Obama the title of public enemy #1. You do not associate with these type of vermin unless you want to destroy the country from within and there is no doubt, this POS wants to destroy us.

There are no words in the English language to describe my hatred for this POS in the White House but maybe another language has something useful and more descriptive.

Regretably, what PSI did back in 2002 is not that much different from what thousands of American pop singers and Hollywood idols have done from the days of Vietnam on down.

After this news came out, Obama should have backed down. But he knew that none of his leftist supporters would be offended anyway. It makes them think Obama’s more of a peacenik like them, even though he uses drones to kill children from time to time.

I’m also curious as to why anyone would choose PSI as the start of a CHRISTMAS show? What does he have to do with Christmas. There are good Christians in Korea—I know a couple of them—but it doesn’t appear that PSI is one of them. Might as well choose Madonna as your Christmas star.

Face it. Obama isn’t really a Christmas fan. All he wanted was a publicity op that would draw a lot of attention to—Obama.

RE: The libs all accepted it as sincere, as did you.

_________________________

The liberals also believe that the sun rises in the east and sets in the west as I do ( and presume you do too ).

That is a more complete apology than you’ll get from any politician and we all say things in the heat of emotion that we later regret.

He did not just say “I’m sorry If I offended anyone” this part stuck out..

“I understand the sacrifices American servicemen and women have made to protect freedom and democracy in my country and around the world”

He not only said his words were wrong he gave an understandable reason (the death of innocent Koreans in Iraq) and made sure to point out that freedom in his nation is owed to Americans.

What more can he say?

I still think he did it for monetary/politial reasons.

He blamed what he was complaining about on the wrong people.

Anybody that talks about killing American women and children needs a better apology than his political one.

He's a good one to be a buddy of Obama.

OK, so what do you suggest he do short of committing hara kiri?

what he said was barbaric in words and context. He sounded like a mooslim lunatic. His so called apology was even worse. I call it a plastic surgery ‘apology’ at best.

I think you mean well, but you sound naive to believe that he sincerely apologized.

PS: He is ugly on the outside as well as inside, but must have a heckuva marketing agent.

IF he felt really bad about what he said, he should have retracted his statement and sincerely apologized way back then, after he “cooled down.”

The timing and the wording of it all is suspicious enough. He did not apologize for what he said, just the words he used to express his sentiments. Some apology.

RE: IF he felt really bad about what he said, he should have retracted his statement and sincerely apologized way back then, after he “cooled down.”

______________________________

That performance was done 10 years ago.

The performance was in response to the 2002 death of two Korean school girls, who were killed in an accident with an American military vehicle outside of Seoul, according to Korean Web site BusanHaps. The soldiers driving the tank were acquitted by a US military court.

See here:

http://www.nypost.com/p/pagesix/psy_rapped_about_killing_yankees_KZkk3VuBS7If4k0RtI778L

According to the Korea Herald, anti-American sentiment ignited after their deaths, and one of the most outspoken critics in the local entertainment industry was Psy.

Mediaite reports a second incident in 2004 after a South Korean missionary was executed in Iraq – an act of revenge for the country’s support of the U.S. war in Iraq – Psy performed an anti-America song with another popular Korean rock band.

Now, in light of what happened in his country, I can understand the anger he felt in the heat of the moment. If you can’t, then try putting yourself in his shoes for once.

Had Psy still insisted that he felt that way and his lyrics are still justified, then, yes, the man is our enemy.

But if his apology today, wherein he actually showed appreciation for America’s sacrifice for his country, means nothing to you, then there is absolutely no redemption for anyone in your mind.

We part ways in our reaction to his apology.

RE: He did not apologize for what he said, just the words he used to express his sentiments.

These are the words, maybe you can amend the words to see how it will become more satisfactory :

“As a proud South Korean who was educated in the United States and lived there for a very significant part of my life, I understand the sacrifices American servicemen and women have made to protect freedom and democracy in my country and around the world. The song I featured on in question from eight years ago – was part of a deeply emotional reaction to the war in Iraq and the killing of two Korean schoolgirls that was part of the overall antiwar sentiment shared by others around the world at that time. While I’m grateful for the freedom to express one’s self, I’ve learned there are limits to what language is appropriate and I’m deeply sorry for how these lyrics could be interpreted. I will forever be sorry for any pain I have caused by those words.

“I have been honored to perform in front of American soldiers in recent months – including an appearance on the Jay Leno show specifically for them- and I hope they and all Americans can accept my apology. While it’s important that we express our opinions, I deeply regret the inflammatory and inappropriate language I used to do so. In my music, I try to give people a release, a reason to smile. I have learned that thru music, our universal language we can all come together as a culture of humanity and I hope that you will accept my apology.”

Us “f***ing Yankees” are typically all that stands between decent folks and the savages of the world.

Maybe we ought to just bring our people home and liberate our own country...Hmm?

Let the North finally come rolling in with their lists and hit squads, just like Hue during Tet, and PSY and all the useful idiots who think like him can have their little Utopia...until the hardcore Northerners get around to them too.

Hmmm, I was looking for your sense of humor, asking for a link.

The onus should be on the person who insists that liberals believe that the Sun sets in the east and rises in the West.

Well if you find anyone saying that, ask them.

PSYco still blames the US troops for the death of Koreans in the war zone. (they were acquitted)

And he said he is "deeply sorry for how these lyrics could be interpreted." As if saying that Americans should be killed slowly and painfully can actually mean something else.

So he should give a few million to Military families where someone was killed or severely wounded.

Especailly for anyong that was killed "slowly and painfully."

The issue isn't that the idiot "sang" what he did, or that he apologized for it, which he did, the sincerity of which he could prove in song if he were sincere, by thanking the US military and S Korea's military that he's not undernourished and doing all his singing from inside a North Korean concentration camp.

The issue is that the President of the United States shouldn't bestow the honor of a White House visit on such as this.

Hey, it was by one South Korean guy in 2004 — one “rapper”. I don’t think it is in any way indicative of how most South Koreans feel now or even felt then.

I can understand the anger Koreans would have over the 2002 incident with the deaths of the two girls, but I also remember that the communist party over there is what agitated the youth over the incident and likely filled their heads with conspiracy theories of all sorts to the point that the mobs weren't at all interested in investigators finding out what really happened and why and would accept no other outcome than guilt, followed by revenge.

His reaction to that case I can understand. You don't have to be a communist to be outraged over it.

What is wacky and not understandable, is his reaction to the 2004 case, where islamic terrorists killed Koreans they held hostage in Iraq. Did he sing songs of rage against Islamic terrorism, OBL, AQ, or against Saddam Hussein? Did he rage against the killers and want to kill them, their families and so on? Or is that language something he only reserves for South Korea's ally, the United States?.

There was some twisted thinking in that fellow's head that has nothing whatsoever to do with sympathy or concern for dead school girls or Korean hostages and it's probably because the thinking is that of a red. If he is, then it's possible he's probably more concerned about doing accidental PR damage to Obama and acted accordingly with a well-crafted apology to soften the blow. I just wonder if Obama were not the prez, would he have apologized or "honored" the troops? They are "Obama's troops" now, after all.

Ask a Viet Nam vet if they have accepted Hanoi Jane Fonda's apology yet.

Trying to sell more videos, CD's etc... by making a public apology is not acceptable.

You’re probably correct, and I was in a really lousy mood when I read/responded. South Korea has been a stellar ally for many years.

But if the young of the South Korea have been subjected to the same amount/type/aggressive political indoctrination from THEIR “liberals” as ours have, it’s probably a fair assessment of how that generation views us - like we are the source of THEIR problems.

You don't have to preach to me about what went on in Corea. There is NO justification for what he said. Besides, we supposedly "misinterpreted" what he said, per that phyco.

Try putting myself in his shoes? I OWN that ungrateful young punk's "shoes." He knows virtually nothing about what went on in Corea during the war.

Me neither. I trained in Tae Kwon Do for a number of years under a South Korean kwanjangnim, and strangely enough he’s a VERY liberal Dem - go figure. He’s here, earning a good living, safe from any threat of invasion, and he’s supporting a regime in DC that’s not all that different ideologically from his Northern relatives in his own country.

I guess with people who think like you, there will always be enmity between individuals and countries and peace will never be possible.

I most certainly DISAGREE with your feelings.

I can accept his apology and move on. If you can’t, then we part ways.
