In his United Nations “ISIL Speech,” Obama said on 24 September, “In a summer marked by instability in the Middle East and Eastern Europe, I know the world also took notice of the small American city of Ferguson, Missouri -- where a young man was killed, and a community was divided. … So yes, we have our own racial and ethnic tensions. And like every country, we continually wrestle with how to reconcile the vast changes wrought by globalization and greater diversity with the traditions that we hold dear.”
At least he didn't compare the U.S. to Nazi Germany and the republicans to the SS troopers or the Gestapo, Hitler's secret police. After six years he's still apologizing to the world for the evil United States but to mention Ferguson in the same breath as ISIL, where beheading people is an afternoon's entertainment, pushes the envelope too far and displays an attitude of hate for his own country that's palpable.
The jury is out on Ferguson. In fact, the grand jury involved in the Michael Brown death may not even bring the matter to trial. Brown, a black two-bit thief and pot-head who had just committed some petty thievery was gunned down as he apparently tried to finish off a white police officer he had already attacked in the policeman's patrol-car. The president and the attorney general played the race-card right after that happened, with neither of them knowing the facts. They had appointed themselves jury and judge and made it plain that Brown was murdered (another policeman acting stupidly?).
They fueled tension in Ferguson, and neither should have said anything, at least until the judicial system had done its work. Obama didn't mention this at the UN. Instead, he blamed the “problem” on vast global changes and the “greater diversity with the traditions that we hold dear.” What global change caused Brown's death in Missouri? Maybe it was Putin's rape of Crimea. The goons in Ferguson might have been traumatized by that and made looting and burning buildings a sort of therapy.
Should comparing Ferguson with the butchers of ISIL or any recent global “event” make one wonder if the president needs to see a shrink? Or...is he just mean-spirited? Could he possibly just be stupid or have stupid speechwriters? His racism is especially toxic because it's so transparent, and the knowledgeable folks at the UN must be wondering how someone so disdainful of his own country could ever be elected president.
In the Middle East, Muslims are killing Muslims by the thousands. If the president wanted to draw a “global” perspective he would have used his hometown—Chicago—where 1,224 murders have occurred in 2012 plus 2013 plus through 24 September of this year, nearly all of them as blacks killing blacks (well over one per day). Instead, he picked on Ferguson because of the difference in races of the main players. That's racism in action, and “greater diversity with the traditions” has not been an issue for the obvious reason.
In Dreams from My Father, Obama mentioned Marxist professors, structural feminists (whoever they were), and punk-rock performance poets as friends he chose carefully (pg. 100). On pg. 101, he wrote regarding campus life, “No, it remained necessary to prove which side you were on, to show your loyalty to the black masses, to strike out and name names.” Is that “hate-speech?”
In his UN speech, Obama said: “Islam teaches peace. Muslims the world over aspire to live with dignity and a sense of justice. ... No God condones this [Muslim-activated] terror. … it is time for the world – especially Muslim communities – to explicitly, forcefully, and consistently reject the ideology of al Qaeda and ISIL.” Islam is Obama's blind spot. Reared as Muslim in his childhood, he in those brief statements contradicted his own insistence that Islam means good for the world, knowing that a main premise of the Koran/Haditha (Muslim “holy” books) is that the infidel must be killed or enslaved.
As he did in completely destroying Libya without even consulting Congress, much less debating, Obama has begun another war, this time in Syria. But, of course, it's all the fault of George Bush.
And so it goes.
