Mr. Obama Tells Kenyan Prez How To Conduct Business – Then Trashes His Own Treatment In America

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

About John L. Work

John Lloyd Work has taken the detective thriller genre and woven an occasional political thread throughout his books, morphing what was once considered an arena reserved for pure fiction into believable, terrifying, futuristic, true-to-life “faction”. He traveled the uniformed patrolman’s path, answering brutal domestic violence calls, high speed chases, homicides, suicides, armed robberies, breaking up bar fights, and the accompanying sporadic unpredictable moments of terror - which eventually come to all police officers, sometimes when least expected. He gradually absorbed the hard fact that the greatest danger a cop faces comes in the form of day-to-day encounters with emotionally disturbed, highly intoxicated people. Those experiences can wear a cop down, grinding on his own emotions and psyche. Prolonged exposure to the worst of people and people at their worst can soon make him believe that the world is a sewer. That police officer’s reality is a common thread throughout Work’s crime fiction books. Following his graduation from high school, Work studied music and became a professional performer, conductor and teacher. Life made a sudden, unexpected turn when, one afternoon in 1976, his cousin, who eventually became the Chief of the Ontario, California, Police Department, talked him into riding along during a patrol shift. The musician was hooked into becoming a police officer. After working for two years as a reserve officer in Southern California and in Boulder, Colorado, he joined the Longmont, Colorado Police Department. Work served there for seven years, investigating crimes as a patrolman, detective and patrol sergeant. In 1989 he joined the Adams County, Colorado Sheriff’s Office, where he soon learned that locking a criminal up inside a jail or prison does not put him out of business. As a sheriff’s detective he investigated hundreds of crimes, including eleven contract murder conspiracies which originated “inside the walls”. While serving on the Adams County North Metro Gang Task Force and as a member of the Colorado Security Threat Intelligence Network Group (STING), Work designed a seminar on how a criminal’s mind formulates his victim selection strategy. Over a period of six years he taught that class in sheriff’s academies and colleges throughout Colorado. He saw the world of crime both inside the walls and out on the streets. His final experiences in the criminal law field were with the Colorado State Public Defender’s Office, where for nearly two years he investigated felonies from the defense side of the Courtroom. Twenty-two years of observing human nature at its worst, combined with watching some profound changes in America’s culture and political institutions, provided plenty of material for his first three books. A self-published author, he just finished writing his tenth thriller.
