ohrdruf.jpgOn Monday presidential candidate Barack Obama misspoke when citing Auschwitz rather than Ohrdruf (pictured right), a sub-camp of Buchenwald, as one of the Nazi concentration camps his uncle helped liberate. According to the Associated Press:

The Barack Obama campaign said Tuesday the candidate mistakenly referred to the wrong Nazi death camp when relating the story of a great-uncle who helped liberate the camps in World War II….

The Democratic presidential candidate said the story is accurate except that the camp was Buchenwald, not Auschwitz….

Aides said Tuesday that his grandmother’s brother, Charlie Payne, helped liberate a Buchenwald sub-camp in April 1945 as part of the 89th Infantry Division.
In a meeting Monday with veterans, Obama discussed the importance of improving treatment for soldiers suffering post-traumatic stress. To illustrate his point, he talked about his own family.

“I had an uncle who was part of the first American troops to go into Auschwitz and liberate the concentration camps. The story in our family was that when he came home, he just went up into the attic and he didn’t leave the house for six months,” Obama said. “Now, obviously something had really affected him, but at that time there just weren’t the kinds of facilities to help somebody work through that kind of pain.”

I don’t consider Obama’s gaffe a big deal. Who hasn’t mixed up names?
But I am disgusted that Obama would decry the Holocaust on one hand while promoting the most atrocious of abortions on the other. He understands the concept of humans committing atrocities against other humans. He just cherry-picks applications.
Merely viewing carnage at a concentration camp was apparently so traumatic it caused Obama’s uncle to go catatonic. Meanwhile Obama supports drawing-and-quartering D&E abortions, partial birth abortions, and even live birth abortions.
I’ll tell you something. The first year I testified before Obama in an IL Senate committee that at least one IL hospital five miles from his church was letting preemie babies die by slow suffocation, some naked and cold and alone, I didn’t think he understood.
So the next year I brought photos from my neonatal resuscitation guidebook, published by the American Heart Association and American Academy of Pediatrics, showing a very premature infant being resuscitated at the same age as some were being left to die at Christ Hospital. I submitted the photos and watched the page distribute them to members of the committee. I watched Obama glance at the photos, set them aside, and go on to argue against IL’s Born Alive Infant Protection Act.
The man, as are all pro-aborts, is schizophrenic and lacks conscience. Here are the photos I submitted to Obama. Click to enlarge:
I was reading history on the Ohrdruf camp this morning and came on this, a recollection from a liberating soldier:

I wrote a letter to my parents describing the experience, which was read at a local gathering of businessmen. It was widely disbelieved.

And another soldier’s account:

When we took Ohrdruf. I spoke to some people in the town of Ohrdruf; they did not know a thing. The Mayor of Ohrdruf claimed he didn’t know about it. He committed suicide. With all of them it was always somebody else. It was always: “It was not me.”

And I recalled what Obama said to me in committee after I testified that 2nd time, after I showed him those pictures:

My concern is what appears to be the doctors really don’t care about children who are born with a reasonable prospect of life because they’re so locked in to their pro-abortion views that they would watch an infant that is viable die. That may be your assessment and I don’t see evidence of that.

Someday Obama will see evidence, whether in this world or the next. And like his uncle, he’ll certainly go catatonic when he grasps the full horror of abortion. The difference is, of course, Obama is not one of the liberators, he’s one of the oppressors.
