Liberals are no longer even hiding the fact that they hate America. The elitist Lincoln Center is honoring Yuri Kochiyama on what would have been her 100th birthday this week.
Kochiyama was a huge fan of Osama bin Laden, Malcolm X, Che Guevara, Patrice Lumumba and Fidel Castro. She said she loved bin Laden because of his “severe dislike for the US government and those who held power in the US.”
“I’m glad that you are curious why I consider Usama bin Laden as one of the people that I admire. To me, he is in the category of Malcolm X, Che Guevara, Patrice Lumumba, Fidel Castro, all leaders that I admire. They had much in common. Besides being strong leaders who brought consciousness to their people, they all had severe dislike for the U.S. government and those who held power in the U.S.”
The Japanese-American was held in an internment camp during World War II. She became an activist and she helped get reparations for Japanese-Americans who were kept in the internment camps during the Second World War.
And through it all, she never lost her deep hatred for the country that allowed her to succeed in life. A life she never would have had if she lived in one of the countries ruled by those she said she admired.
In a statement to Fox News, the Lincoln Center said the event was meant to highlight Kochiyama’s life of civil rights activism amid a nationwide spike in hate crimes targeting Asian Americans.

“Yuri Kochiyama dedicated her life to activism for Asian Americans and all communities of color, and she inspires activists to this day.
In the wake of the recent violence perpetrated against Asians and Asian Americans, the Pop-Up performance was designed to be an artistic reflection on decades of activism within the AAPI community. It is not a condoning of one individual perspective—rather, an acknowledgment and exploration of the ongoing clarion calls for systemic change.”
Why not honor someone like George M Cohan? He loved this country and he wrote the war songs that got us through two world wars.
He was born on the Fourth of July and was named for George Washington.
