A 2009 letter from World War II veteran Harold B. Estes to President Barack Obama just resurfaced, and it’s as noteworthy today as it was seven years ago.
In the letter, Estes expressed his anger at President Obama — not only for the policies of the Obama administration but also for the way the first family represented the United States.
While the authenticity of the letter was questioned by the American left, Snopes deemed it completely authentic.
Estes began the letter by noting some lies he said were told by President Obama and first lady Michelle Obama.
“I am amazed, angry and determined not to see my country die before I do, but you seem hell-bent not to grant me that wish, Estes wrote. “I can’t figure out what country you are the president of. You fly around the world telling our friends and enemies despicable lies like: ‘We’re no longer a Christian nation,’ ‘America is arrogant.’”
Estes blasted the president, saying Obama clearly did not care for the U.S.
“I’d say shame on the both of you, but I don’t think you like America nor do I see an ounce of gratefulness in anything you do for the obvious gifts this country has given you,” Estes said. “To be without shame or gratefulness is a dangerous thing for a man sitting in the White House. “
“Take a little advice from a very old geezer, young man: Shape up and start acting like an American. If you don’t, I’ll do what I can to see you get shipped out of that fancy rental on Pennsylvania Avenue. You were elected to lead, not to bow, apologize and kiss the hands of murderers and corrupt leaders who still treat their people like slaves,” Estes warned.
The veteran ended his letter with some good advice.
“You’re not going to restore American greatness by bringing back our bloated economy. That’s not our greatest threat. Losing the heart and soul of who we are as Americans is our big fight now. And I sure as hell don’t want to think my president is the enemy in this final battle.”
A response from President Obama was never reported.
Sadly, Estes died in 2011 at 97 years old, according to the Hawaii Reporter.
