Another Day, another rant from the party of racists and bigots that hates having a Black Man as President. It’s a Racism/Bigotry thing that’s ALL it is. Case in point:
Obama Suggests Islamic Extremists Have “Legitimate Grievances”
He did not say ISIS has legitimate Grievance. He in essence said “Governments that deny human rights play into the hands of extremists who claim that violence is the only way to achieve change, To write a post, be literate.
He said, governments that themselves, engage in violence that violate Human rights, make the claim of extremist, in their use of Violence seem legitimate to them. It muddies the water. This was not support. This was a General statement, that the post writer then takes wherever they see fit as a red herring. “Efforts to counter violent extremism will only succeed if citizens can address legitimate grievances through the democratic process and express themselves through strong civil societies.”
Citizens, not ISIS. He is saying here, that when governments do not suppress the voice of the people through violence, they will not join these groups or need the groups like ISIS to handle their grievances. Meaning, lack of outlet and ability breeds extremism. Its right there. Read it again and tell me it says what the post writer interpreted it to Obama Speaks to an 8th grade level. Surely you folk can read these passages and draw from them the actual intent of the speaker. Now, the speaker is a part of that Government Violence, a main player, and therefore a hypocrite. Yes, indeed. But, when you report on what someone says, have integrity and do not rearrange their argument to meet your narrative.
“But Obama said he would stand with Muslims”!!
As usual, lying by omission. You can turn any quotation into a damning statement if you omit the context. Here’s the full context of the “I’ll stand with the Muslims” quotation:
“Of course, not all my conversations in immigrant communities follow this easy pattern. In the wake of 9/11, my meetings with Arab and Pakistani Americans, for example, have a more urgent quality, for the stories of detentions and FBI questioning and hard stares from neighbors have shaken their sense of security and belonging. They have been reminded that the history of immigration in this country has a dark underbelly; they need specific assurances that their citizenship really means something, that America has learned the right lessons from the Japanese internments during World War II, and that I will stand with them should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.”
Should American sentiments turn toward locking all Muslims in the country up in concentration camps, Mr. Obama would stand with them. Who can disagree with that? There were a lot of hate crimes against Muslims in the wake of 9/11, but as American citizens they have the same rights as all of us.
Don’t even get me started the Hateful American Stinker article published today:
Why does Barack Obama hate America that he is siding with the Terrorists? Refusing to call Muslims terrorists!? 1. He doesn’t. 2. It doesn’t matter what he calls them. He has killed several thousand of them so far. Why is Barack Obama an evil man? 3. He isn’t. Why is Barack Obama a Muslim posing as a Christian? 4. He’s not. You are lying. Why is Barack Obama a Communist? 5. He’s not. You have no idea what communism is or you wouldn’t even ask the question. Why is Barack Obama a traitor? 6. He’s not. Feel free to post your evidence that he has been providing aid to the enemy. Why is Barack Obama destroying America? 7. He’s not. Feel free to provide your evidence of the destruction.
Barack Obama is the First President in history that DOESN’T follow the greedy, rich, white, capitalist mantra of his presidential predecessors, and it angers Limbaugh and his racist listeners. They are angry that Barack Obama’s priorities involve giving and creating equal rights for people of All Color, all religions, all sexual orientation, and again it angers them they he doesn’t spend time prompting up the Whites and Christians of this Country.
It angers them that a President DOES NOT give priority to all things White and/or Christian. This Isn’t racist, it’s stating the obvious, and according the Racists and bigots on the Right, something is wrong with you if you prompt up ANY group NOT White and/or Christian
Calling the POTUS a POS and a fraud seems to the usual calling call for you right-wing racists and bigots like you!
