As I’ve previously noted on this site, U.S. Embassies apparently exist solely to help the interests of America-haters and give them an opportunity for visas to the U.S. Now, President Obama’s hand-picked U.S. Ambassador to Costa Rica, “Dumbassador” Anne Andrew, has enlisted her U.S. Embassy employees in this ridiculous music video (a parody of PSY’s “Gangnam Style”) to encourage Costa Rican’s and others to get more visas to go to the U.S., as if we have a shortage and need to “advertise” to get more people to seek visas (and engage in visa fraud). As if we don’t have enough visa violators in our midst already (40% of all the illegal aliens in the U.S. are visa overstays and other sorts of visa violators). Ladies and gentleman, your tax dollars at work. Watch it and BARF . . . .
Hmmmm . . . I wonder why Dumbassador Andrew and her U.S. Embassy staff in San Jose, Costa Rica disabled comments on the YouTube page where they posted this. Could it be that I’m not the only one who thinks this ridiculous waste of time and money is cause for firing them all and just shutting down the embassy? Just how much time and money went into making this bad “Saturday Night Live” skit? Also, looks like they rounded up all the Asian employees in the Embassy and said, “You! You! And You! You’re playing PSY and his sidekicks in our dumb video. You’re Chinese? Well, you all look alike to us and the Costa Ricans.”
So glad they take their job seriously.
Yup, their job of selling America down the river from a foreign perch courtesy of you, the American taxpayer.
Costa Rica has long been an important, strategically-located American ally, which was important, for example, in the fight against the Communist Nicaraguan Sandinistas. But this is just a joke and does no service for America there.
Costa Ricans–the few that saw this video–are probably thinking: “Hey, more dumb American gringos.” And laughing their asses off at us.
By the way, read what the U.S. Embassy in San Jose, Costa Rica says are Dumbassador Andrew’s and Obama’s aims there:
Anne Slaughter Andrew is the first woman to serve as U.S. Ambassador to Costa Rica. To implement President Obama’s vision for the Americas, the Ambassador’s main goals in Costa Rica include: expanding shared prosperity; enhancing citizen security; and advancing environmental security particularly by promoting clean energy, conservation, and sustainable development. Additional priority programs for the Ambassador include the President’s National Export Initiative; Economic Empowerment of Women; and English language skills for youth. The Ambassador promotes the Embassy’s commitment to outstanding service and to the use of cutting edge technologies and social media.
WTF?! Since when do any of these things have ANYTHING to do with U.S. interests there? Doesn’t mention U.S. interests or helping America even once.
And this is the problem with all U.S. Embassies (except the fake one in Tel Aviv, Israel). They represent the foreign host country’s interests and those interests only, not America’s. They are the host country’s embassy to America, not the other way around.
This video is just more evidence of that crap.
But it begs the question: are we making videos like this in other countries . . . such as Muslim countries whose citizens hate us and come here to do us harm and spread Islam? Bet on it.
Al-Visa Style videos coming soon to a shariah-complaint U.S. Embassy near you. (Haven’t seen one in Hebrew, though.)
