(National Sentinel) Alt-Left: Tens of millions of Americans never believed that Barack Hussein Obama much cared for the country that elected him twice because, as president, he was also so quick to find fault in America.
Now that he’s a private citizen again, Obama is continuing his tradition of denigrating his country at the most inopportune (or most opportune, depending on your point of view) times.
The Guardian reports:
The former US president said some countries had adopted “an aggressive kind of nationalism” and “increased resentment of minority groups”, in a speech in Indonesia on Saturday that could be seen as a commentary on the US as well as Indonesia.
“It’s been clear for a while that the world is at a crossroads. At an inflection point,” Obama said, telling a Jakarta crowd stories of how much the capital had improved since he lived there as a child.
But he said that increased prosperity had been accompanied by new global problems, adding that as the world confronts issues ranging from inequality to terrorism, some countries – both developed and less developed – had adopted a more aggressive and isolationist stance.
“If we don’t stand up for tolerance and moderation and respect for others, if we begin to doubt ourselves and all that we have accomplished, then much of the progress that we have made will not continue,” he said.
“What we will see is more and more people arguing against democracy, we will see more and more people who are looking to restrict freedom of the press, and we’ll see more intolerance, more tribal divisions, more ethnic divisions, and religious divisions and more violence,” Obama asserted.
What the hell is Obama talking about? We already see that in America, and it’s all coming from members and supporters of his Democratic Party.
The only times there are ‘arguments against democracy,’ more people wanting to ‘restrict freedom of the press’ and speech, and “more intolerance” and “religious divisions” are when Alt-Left Marxist supporters of the Democratic Party show up to shut down conservative speakers on college campuses and rallies in support of President Donald J. Trump.
Without question Trump has managed to stir up new pride in America – that is what his “Make American Great Again” mantra is all about. But what’s wrong with that?
There is a huge difference between the dangerous kind of “nationalism” that Adolph Hitler preached versus a feeling of pride — patriotism — in one’s country, like most Americans feel. Obama is suggesting that Americans cannot be patriotic without also being nationalistic racists and bigots, which is absurd. The two concepts are not at all alike.
And all on the nation’s most patriotic holiday, which of course is no accident.
We have a suggestion for you, Mr. President, that we think might help ease your mind and truly enjoy your retirement: Find someplace to live other than the “racist, nationalist, bigoted” United States.
We wager you’ll be much happier. We know we will be.
