Obama still plans to attend concert featuring anti-American 'Gangnam Style' singer PSY

No hope, no change of plans.

As Twitchy reported earlier, in 2004 K-pop sensation PSY performed a song that advocated “slowly and painfully” killing U.S. soldiers. PSY is scheduled to perform at the “Christmas in Washington” concert on Sunday with President Obama in attendance.

Apparently, PSY’s show must go on, and President Obama and family aren’t willing to cancel their plans to attend the event.

BuzzFeed’s Rosie Gray reports:

White House spokesman Josh Earnest confirmed that the Obamas will attend Christmas in Washington, a concert hosted by TNT and from which the proceeds benefit the Children’s National Medical Center. The First Family traditionally attends each year.

A Twitchy reader has launched a petition asking President Obama to rescind the invitation to PSY.

While the “Christmas in Washington” concert is actually a TNT production that takes place at the National Building Museum, not the White House, the very least the leader of the free world should do is reject PSY’s vile brand of anti-American filth by skipping the show.

But surprise! It looks like he won’t.

Update:

The petition has been removed from the White House Petition site.

    Obama will probably get up on stage with him and dance Gangnam Style.

          I wish he would do the ‘Hokey Pokey’ turn himself around and take a flying leap off a Fiscal Cliff.

    Of course he is going to watch Psy, birds of a feather stick together.
    But then again maybe Psy’s opinion of Americans is EVOLVING. The more money he makes here means the more he likes us, quite similar again to barack, the more power and money he gets from us the more he likes us also.

    • Vennoye

      NOT!!! The 44th does not like us.

    I had no idea this singer was so disgusting! I think word needs to get out about him and what he said about our troops. I’m sure most don’t even know about it like me and most would be inflamed after hearing it!

  • Ten31

    I wonder if all those YouTube videos of our soldiers performing to Gangnam Style will disappear from YouTube. Pretty sure they wouldn’t have made those videos if they’d known Psy’s disdain for them.

  • Grumpa Grumpus

    Why the surprise that Der Fuhrer will attend?
    He’ll be right at home.

  • Streetiebird

    Psy attended an anti Iraq war rally in 2004 where this song was sung by him and many other celebrities in Korea. Here are the lyrics that Twitchy is hyping:

    Kill those ——- Yankees who have been torturing Iraqi captives
    Kill those ——- Yankees who ordered them to torture
    Kill their daughters, mothers, daughters-in-law and fathers
    Kill them all slowly and painfully

    The Anti-Americanism in Korea at the time was driven by regional politics, among other things.

    Thanks Twitchy for being so thorough with your investigation into this serious matter. Now back to your regularly scheduled Obama-bashing.

    • effinayright

      “driven by regional politics”? “among other things”?

      Well, all right then! The man deserves a pass!!

      (Man, you are one dull tool)

        Sorry for doing the research Twitchy refuses to do, and providing some context for the faux-outrage, I know you find it icky.

        • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

          Lol. Did you get hired for that research position, or did you take it upon yourself?

          What are those ‘among other things’ you decided to leave out? I mean, if you’re going to DO the research, you can at least do a better job of it.

          Anyhow, you’re just an absolute moron. Twitchy finds tweets, and builds the article around those tweets. It’s not as if they are publishing their own news articles… and if you think this is a news site, then you’re more stupid than I originally thought. Don’t blame Twitchy, idiot… why don’t you take it out on those that tweeted, instead?

      Behold the kind of stupid you need to be to support Obama.

      Streetiebird — a proud member of the most aggressively ignorant generation in human history — demonstrates this for us daily so we don’t have to associate with these sociopaths IRL.

      Tell us something we don’t know… moocher.

    President, Fearless Leader, Obama, proves that he has no class and he doesn’t give a c rap about our troops. Just tell PSY, sorry, the President doesn’t approve of your disgraceful views of our troops and so either cancel out or the President and First Family won’t be in attendance.

  • Puravida

    I doubt the President has the proper understanding of how this offends the military population which is amazing since he is CIC!

  • alostjunkie

    he probably will do a sing-along

  • golftilidrop

    Think we should have a few Rangers and Seals greet him at the airport and escort him to the show.

    Blecch. Can’t stand hearing that such an anti-American soldier-hating piece of worthless crap gets to use Christmas as an opportunity to showcase his own ego yet again. As if seeing this moron all over Youtube wasn’t bad enough.

    Oh, and that South Korean rapper guy sounds like a jerk too.

    How many times have Americans written about killing either other Americans, or people from other countries, and nobody thinks twice about it. But, an Asian guy makes lyrics about killing and suddenly it’s a huge deal. Gotta love hypocrites. Words are just words, I highly doubt Psy plans to get people together to kill anybody.

    I just did a search for Barack Obama on Twitter, and among the “related searches” were Lady Gaga, Rihana, and Jason Mraz. That pretty much says it all about Obama.

    Surely one shouldn’t expect the Commander in Chief to refuse to attend a “Christmas” in Washington event just because a performer has been singing about killing American military and their families. Where is your progressive liberal anti war, anti military, anti gun, anti Christmas holiday spirit?

    • Leroy Delphi

      Yeah Obama’s so antiwar, he increased the number of people killed by drones by a factor of four, and doubled the number of dead American troops in Afghanistan.

  • Linda (Lou) Norris

    Isn’t PSY South Korean? Isn’t the only reason he has the freedom to do what he does because of American soldiers? I’m pretty sure he owes my Korean war veteran dad an apology…

  • pairadimes

    I heard that Obama and Psy will be joined on stage by Reverend Wright, Bill Ayers and Common for the Christmas version of F*** Tha Police.

    • Hello Jerry (D)

      And special appearances by Jamie Foxx, Ashley Judd, Katy Perry and the two dolts, Gay-Z and his “bitch” Beyonce.

  • HARP2

    Someone should remind this chubby little freak, how many Americans died so he could be free enough to make a complete fool of himself.

  • Jd1367

    People are surprised that Obama wouldn’t cancel seeing this guy because of anti-American views? I’m surprised Obama hasn’t offerend him a cabinet position …

  • Jack Levitt

    Why did the most ‘transparent’ administration in history delete the petition…? Was it on the same server where they keep the hidden EPA email accounts and was just routinely purged because it is Friday…?

  • KateNE

    Of course he is. Hearing that Psy sang anti-American military lyrics makes Obama want to go to this concert even more.

    • http://limemediahawaii.com/ AniMatsuri

      That was my thought too. I’ll be happy if Obama just restrains himself from giving this guy the medal of freedom or something.

  • Atlasshruggedmyass

    You all sound like a bunch of idiots .Zit was our Troops who requested PSY the most this year Morons

    • K.A. W

      Before they knew about what he said.

  • Atlasshruggedmyass

    he Military men ABSOLUTLEY love PSY and have done several parady videos of “Gangnem Style” and the troops don’t seem the least bit offended to me.

  • Seewetoldu

    Behold the fearless leader of the US. Not POTUS…should be POSOTUS

  • Kariann Hart

    It sounded like PSY was to be the last performer and close the show. It isn’t his concert. I beleive the rapper should willingly cancel his performance. It was a silly song with some quirky dance steps. The fad will soon be ending.

  • bo1921

    What’s the big deal? PSY’s Christmas host hates America, too. I’m sure they’ll have lots in common to talk about.

  • YaBoyNYP

    Haters gone hate….
