This will surely be the last straw.
Ken Burns only asked the president to recite the Gettysburg Address so that it could be recorded for an anniversary project. But while reading the text to the camera, what did he do? He edited out “under God.” Might as well improve the damn thing while you’ve got a chance, right? It’s not every day you get the opportunity to insinuate your pal Satan into the minds of millions of unsuspecting Americans.
WASHINGTON — One nation under God? Under President Obama, maybe not so much . . the Commander-in-Chief joined a cast of 61 other noted lawmakers, politicians, news anchors and celebrities, including every living President, in reciting the Gettysburg Address, which President Abraham Lincoln delivered on November 19, 1863.
The dignitaries all delivered the address as Lincoln had written it, including the phrase, “that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom” . . Curiously, however, in his version of the address, President Obama omitted the words “under God.”
Breitbart.com was properly alerted to this flawless act of jeebus-stomping communism.
Washington DC talk show host Chris Plante reported today that Barack Obama omitted the words “under God” from the Gettysburg Address when reciting the great speech for a Ken Burns documentary . .
Plante broke the story on Washington DC talk radio station WMAL on his mid-morning program, “The Chris Plante Show.”
To say the readers there went out of their minds would be an understatement. More than six-thousand comments so far:
tru…. Satan is cumin back 6666… g0d help us plz….. Obammer === Nazi Muzzler atheist agnostic christian Facist commie socialist Libtard…. We are all ded… thx obammer….
But. It isn’t quite as it appears. The real reason God will soon barbecue us all like hairy hamburgers traces back, past this president, to the speech’s author, Abraham Lincoln. He gave the very first written version of the address to one of his secretaries, John Nicolay. In it, there was no “under God.” The second version, too, omitted the phrase that today prevents us from collapsing into Luciferian madness and perversion. Three subsequent versions written after the address did include the two words. But Burns – who’s also a historian, oddly – asked the president to read the original version. Lincoln is believed to have inserted the nod to Him at Gettysburg, but no one’s really sure because it was a long time ago. Before the Sony Walkman PRO.
ADD: Even the Weekly Standard.
Somebody give John McCormack a raise. Or a drink.
Whether intentional or not, President Obama’s omission of these words from the most important speech in American history is quite embarrassing. Can you imagine the ridicule that President Bush would have rightfully faced if he added the words “under God” to a famous historical text (say, the preamble of the Constitution) in which they weren’t included?
I mean golly – say what? It was Ken Burns? McCormack’s post has since been deleted.
ADD Number Two: Even the National Review.
The NR did eventually get hip to the sinning of Burns/Lincoln but they didn’t delete the post, Weekly-Standard style. They merely updated it. Which leaves us to contemplate these comments, for all time presumably:

so why do we care, Lincoln destroyed the constitution to ruin the country with free roaming africans As for the blood ransom of the lash, every year blacks shed more white blood than slaveowners did in 500 years. Not that what slaveowners did has ANYTHING AT ALL to do with America or living American Whites

White southern slave owners were the founders of the Progressive party and latter in the early 1900s enabled Sanger’s abortion scheme to kill “empty eaters” aka blacks and mongoloids (Mexicans).
Obama choose to use the version Lincoln did not use, because he was not going to say the word God, just like in the three debates with Romney he did not use the words God, Creator, and Jesus.
The new birth of freedom will be under Satan, the stenographer delivered that message from the House floor directly from God.
And what better way to honor the Great Emancipator’s legacy?
