Sorry if I got lost here. I could swear that Barack Hussein Obama has been the elected leader of the United States of America for nearly seven full years now. Did he not have every possible privilege life has to offer its wealthiest citizens – private schooling, the best colleges and universities, election to the highest offices in the world? Or did I miss something? As he spoke to Kenyans, perhaps Mr. Obama was grossly misunderstood by The Telegraph reporter, Aislinn Laing. Yes. She must have entirely misunderstood his allusion to being treated poorly in his own country – because he’s an African American. There can be no other explanation – can there be?
Here’s a little of Laing’s report from Nairobi, Kenya, where Barack Obama is telling the president of that sovereign nation how it should deal with the issue of gay rights:
Barack Obama, the US president, has directly challenged his host Uhuru Kenyatta, the Kenyan president, on the issue of gay rights, suggesting that “bad things happen” when countries don’t accept their citizens’ right to be homosexual…
Indeed. Bad things happen. Especially in Muslim states. Mr. O didn’t mention that little factoid. And a lot worse things happen when a President of The United States refuses to enforce his country’s immigration laws. But that’s a story for a different day.
…Mr Obama said that as an African-American, he was “painfully aware” of what it was like to be treated as a lesser citizen in law in his own country and that such discriminatory policies ended up on the wrong side of history.
“When you start treating people differently, not because of any harm they’re doing anybody but because they’re doing different, that’s the path whereby freedoms begin to erode, and bad things happen,” Mr Obama told reporters at State House in Nairobi…
Eroding freedoms. What a quaint idea from a man who has done more to suppress freedom in this nation than any other I can recall. Really. If Mr. Obama was truly treated as a lesser citizen, how is it he won two elections to the office of President of the United States? How could that happen in a country that is rampant with anti-black racism? Please tell me. How could he begin his first term with a 70% national approval rating? Did no white people vote for him? Were no white people polled for their approval/non-approval opinions? Did he win the presidency with only the black and minority votes? Is that possible?
Statements like these are absolute brain busters in their bold mendacity. They are a veritable slap in the face to the people who trusted and voted for him. But, then again, Mr. Obama has given white, heterosexual Judeo/Christian America nothing but the back of his hand for the past seven years.
…”When you start treating people differently, not because of any harm they’re doing anybody but because they’re doing different, that’s the path whereby freedoms begin to erode, and bad things happen,” Mr Obama told reporters at State House in Nairobi.
“And when government gets in the habit of treating people differently, those habits start to spread. I am unequivocal on this. The idea they are going to be treated differently or abused because of who they love is wrong, full stop.”…
I wonder if he would tell the Iranians the same words about gay rights. You know. The same Iranians who publicly hang homosexuals. How about the Saudis? The Afghanis? How about any Muslim state which deals out the death penalty for homosexuality?
Ah, but we in the United States have treated Mr. Obama poorly. We’ve made his life difficult. I wonder – what else we could have done for him that would have made him feel more affection for us, the Americans who made him our President. Shame on all of us.
What a terrible, awful, mean-spirited place is white heterosexual America.
There’s some gratitude for you. I didn’t vote for the man. But a whole lot of other Americans did vote for him
