Obama rips Donald Trump-fueled ‘nationalism’

Barack Obama, never one to shy from ripping a Republican in the public eye, took occasion from his childhood hometown Jakarta to tear into President Donald Trump for — at root — having too much patriotism.

Call it Fourth of July celebrations, Obama style. America waves Ol’ Glory; Obama beats the global drum.

“The world is at a crossroads,” Obama said, to the Fourth Congress of the Indonesian Diaspora, The Hill reported.

The overall theme of his message?

Countries ought not pursue sovereign national interests at the risk of the rest of the world. He was speaking largely of the Paris climate accord, and the need for global powers to embrace it.

But he was focused on those who stood opposed to joining it.

Hmm, wonder of whom he spoke? Could it be Trump, who’s flatly refused to jump on the Paris accord train?

To Obama, failing to fight climate change is tantamount to racism — not to mention silly sovereign politicking.

“We start seeing a rise in sectarian politics, we start seeing a rise in an aggressive kind of nationalism, we start seeing both in developed and developing countries an increased resentment about minority groups and the bad treatment of people who don’t look like us or practice the same faith as us,” he said, The Hill reported.

Of course, Obama didn’t use Trump’s name.

But just in case you missed the subtle hint, Obama also noted “the temporary absence of American leadership” on combating climate change.

The change in leadership style, post-Obama, present Trump, couldn’t be more different. Trump’s “Make America Great Again.” Obama’s all about the world view. Trump’s “America First,” and all the other countries, second. Obama? Reverse that. Throw in some hefty taxes and spread the wealth — and then and only then, does America make the list.

Thankfully, it’s Trump who won last November — not the Obama-light candidate of Hillary Clinton. That alone, heading into July Fourth celebrations, is fireworks worthy. Patriotic Americans have at least four years of being considered important, in the eyes of the White House — not just tools to advance a global agenda.





The stupidity of liberals, ability to ignore their ignorance

Obarry isn't patriotic because he isn't American and he isn't
Christian, he tried his best to convert this country into another
European muslim breeding ground. He's a habitual liar or he
wouldn't have lied every time he spoke, give me reasons why the
world and our media for the most part has, over night, railed non
stop against Trump and all his policies when not one of those
are bad for America.
People should start listening to what he's saying, slowly and surly
the truth of the real reasons why he's here are becoming known. 

Obama, without doubt, at least in my opinion, was and is the first, and so far the only US President that was elected actually hating the Country as it is and has been.  It was no doubt on his agenda to change the Country, as referenced above, to a more socialist type nation where certain of the people would support others only he did not have the opportunity to do complete his agenda when the Republicans were handed House control in 2010.  White Americans were seen as inherently evil and deserving of retribution.  I've always felt that he was and is our greatest embarrassment yet I have no doubt that in all likelihood he would be reelected if that were possible, yet again regardless of whatever he has or had planned.

I kind of like Barry Goldwater's views on nationalism:

 "Extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice. And let me remind you also that moderation in the pursuit of justice is no virtue."

Also, he may have foreseen Barry Soetoro:

"Those who seek absolute power, even though they seek it to do what they regard as good, are simply demanding the right to enforce their own version of heaven on earth. And let me remind you, they are the very ones who always create the most hellish tyrannies. Absolute power does corrupt, and those who seek it must be suspect and must be opposed. Their mistaken course stems from false notions of equality, ladies and gentlemen. Equality, rightly understood, as our founding fathers understood it, leads to liberty and to the emancipation of creative differences. Wrongly understood, as it has been so tragically in our time, it leads first to conformity and then to despotism."
