Barack Obama

How Obama Divides America

You're either with him or one of the bad guys

|

At the funeral service for five slain Dallas cops, President Barack Obama delivered another one of his needlessly politicized lectures. As is customary these days, those who were critical of his rhetoric were branded racists and unthinking haters.

That's one theory.

Another one is that people may be put off by Obama's grating habit of turning every tragedy into a sermon about our supposed collective failings. I doubt the president is substantively more partisan than the average politician, but like most people on the left these days, he no longer bothers to make a distinction between a policy position and a moral struggle.

The issue of gun control, for example, is not a good-faith disagreement among people of different persuasions but—like civil rights or suffrage—a struggle waged by the righteous against the evil (and sometimes those poor souls tricked by the National Rifle Association).

Seemingly every political battle waged by the modern Democratic Party—gay rights, immigration, climate change, inequality—is imbued with a kind of spiritual certitude that justifies circumventing debate. If a person who opposes the Obama administration's transgender bathroom policy is just like a Klansman, why even discuss the matter? In this context, the histrionics of Democrats in Congress over guns or the media's melodramas make all the sense in the world.

In this context, why wouldn't the president lecture us about gun control in his eulogy? Why wouldn't Obama offer completely unsubstantiated claims about guns? "It is easier for a teenager to buy a Glock than get his hands on a computer or even a book," was a contention Obama made that no rational person could ever possibly believe. It's meant to convey the idea that half the nation cares more about the NRA than about children.

So maybe some conservatives are put off by Obama's awe-inspiring propensity to create straw men and offer false choices at every opportunity—all under the guise of thoughtful discourse. Maybe it's that he never offers a fair or reasonable assessment of his opposition's positions before pretending to debunk them. Or maybe it's that no matter what actually happens, he clings to a predetermined message before blaming the half of America that didn't vote for him.

Last week, the Dallas chief of police told us that the murderer of five cops, Micah Xavier Johnson, was "upset about the recent police shootings" and "wanted to kill white people, especially white officers." In the same way, the Orlando shooter, Omar Mateen, was a Muslim motivated by the Islamic State group to murder as many gay Americans as he could. Because neither of those storylines comports with the president's worldview, in each instance, he laid down collective responsibility and implored us to be more liberal and thus avoid more incidents like them.

We are better than this, he says.

We are. When speaking about Johnson, Obama claimed that "none of us is entirely innocent" when it comes to racial discrimination—"and that includes our police departments." Actually, most cops and most people are entirely innocent when it comes to racial discrimination. Yes, there are racists and bigots in all our institutions and communities, but most Americans don't need to "open our hearts" on the subject simply because liberals accuse them of harboring ugly thoughts. We need to fix police departments. We need to fix our inner-city schools. And we need to fix the economic prospects of minority populations. People have different ideas for how to go about it. Every day, though, the vast majority of citizens peacefully interact in families, in friendships and in commerce.

If you continually claim that every problem in America is driven by hate, people may start believing you. According to a new Pew Research Center poll, Americans' perception of race relations is more negative today than it has been in 20 years. About 48 percent of those polled claim that "race relations are generally bad." And 36 percent of adults say that "too much attention" is paid to race and racial issues today. Are things really worse today than they were 30 years ago? Fifty years?

When Obama calls for unity (you'll recall this was a big part of his first campaign), he's not talking about a nation that maximizes its freedom so that there is space for an array of cultural outlooks and ideas. He means a nation of diverse people who can all agree that progressivism is right for the nation.

Meanwhile, this administration has made a habit of using the power of the state to coerce and compel others to accept its cultural attitudes. For him, unity means little dissent. In his last State of the Union address, for example, Obama laid out a progressive agenda and then implored us to embrace "American ideals" as if they were the same. Obviously, the nation is divided because Americans have deep-seated, legitimate and meaningful disagreements about the future. One man can neither unify us nor break us apart on his own. But it's been a long time since we've had a president as divisive as Barack Obama.

  1. Obama grates on my nerves worse than Bush ever did, and that is saying something.

    1. When Bush idiotically talked about how if you’re not with us, you’re against us, he was talking about other countries and the international community. When Obama and the Dems today have similar notions and says similar things, they’re talking about half of America.

      1. Typically the half that would never vote for him, or his 3rd term heir.

      2. No, Bush was telling anyone, including Americans, that you’d better get with the program of invasion and occupation or you’re the enemy.

        1. He actually had a CIA agent outed when her diplomat husband questioned his “proof” that Iraq had WMAs.

    2. This^. He is the most partisan President in my lifetime. He made one non-partisan unifying speech in his life (the 2004 convention that made him national) and has simply ridden that ever since. My dad says Nixon was comparable – but his partisanship was more a paranoid character flaw and he hardly has a positive reputation.

      It’s almost like Obama has never understood that he actually won the 2008 election. But rather than become President of the entire country, he chose to keep on campaigning as Leader of the Democratic Party.

      1. He and his supporters absolutely don’t understand that they’ve been in charge for eight years

      2. Like any hustler, whether race, “class”, gender… they can never have the appearance of having won. They need to create the perpetual victimhood theme. Obama has done it constantly (far too many times to specify) and Bush did it with Iran/Iraq.

  2. Honestly he is a pretty sad individual. History will only remember him as being the first African American President who was given a Nobel peace Prize based solely upon the color of his skin.

    1. An acquaintance of mine is having a bumper sticker printed up:

      “Vote for Hillary because she is a woman
      just like you voted for Obama because he is…”

      The guy is almost as much of a troll as Trump. I warned him that his car/tires/paint probably wouldn’t last a week if he put that on his truck.

      1. He should take out the battery and leave it in his driveway. Then set up a hidden surveillance camera and sue the ever loving fuck out of whatever asshole democrat messes with the truck because of a bumper sticker.

    2. When he first ran, the support he got was proof of how racist the country still is. The argument boiled down to, we need a black president. Ability, accomplishments, wisdom, character ? Nah, people flat out said they were voting for the color of his skin.

      1. Actually people told me they voted for him because McCain promised to continue the Iraq War for another 50 years but your skin color theory is interesting. How come they didn’t just vote for Herman Cain?

    3. If only. He’ll be painted as the greatest president ever, who deftly steered us out of the Bush years and reigned over years of unprecedented prosperity. They rewrite history with the best of them

    4. I suspect history will remember him as being divisive because of the color of his skin.

      1. Divisive means hatred by the goober wing in the GOP. Where do I send your trophy?

  3. Yes he is bad but at least he gives lip service to free speech and religion – our most important rights. He is far better than Hitlary or Der Drumpf on the issue. And he’s kept us from becoming more like Europe: German police launch first nationwide hate speech raids. (Weimar blasphemy laws, anyone?) For that I’m grateful for the Obozo.

    1. Yes he is bad but at least he gives lip service to free speech and religion

      HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!! OMG, you just absolutely made me pee my pants laughing!

      Oh, did you ever pay up?

      1. Yeah, shreek must think this is opposite day, or something.

    2. “We need to rethink our position on free speech. The rest of the world doesnt see free speech the way we do.”

      That lip service?

      How about trying to prosecute oil companies and think tanks for being global warming deniers? More examples of his respect for free speech?

      Go fuck yerself shreek.

      1. That sounds like something Loretta would say. Not Obozo.

        Here’s something Obozo said:

        “Don’t feel like you got to shut your ears off because you’re too fragile and somebody might offend your sensibilities.”

        1. We must not leave the future to those who would defile the name of theprophet mohammed.

          Benghazi was the result of a youtube video and we need to arrest its creator.

          Pretty compelling support for the 1A.

        2. good point, but ironically he said both things.

      2. How about trying to prosecute oil companies and think tanks for being global warming deniers? More examples of his respect for free speech?

        Do you have a source for that?

      3. “We need to rethink our position on free speech. The rest of the world doesnt see free speech the way we do.”
        That lip service?

        Your comment is the only use of that phrase in the universe of Google. I’d never seen ONE listing. I kept thinking the others were delayed. Nope. What is meant by that phrase, which makes no sense on its own?

        1. I remember the comment, but I believe he has not gotten it exactly right. I might look for it later and see if I can run it down. Obama has been all over the place on free speech. A bit better lately I believe.

    3. I wonder how many police raids Germany launched in the late 1930’s.

      1. Do you know who else…damn…

  4. “to the two-thirds of voters who chose not to participate in the process yesterday, I hear you, too.”

    this is what obama said after the 2014 elections. in his mind, by not voting, those 2/3 were signaling that they agreed with him, so why would he care that democrats lost horribly….most people agreed with him, and he’s the only one who noticed. he’s special that way.

    1. “To everyone who voted, I want you to know that I hear you. To the two-thirds of voters who chose not to participate in the process yesterday, I hear you too,”l

      in his mind, by not voting, those 2/3 were signaling that they agreed with him, so why would he care that democrats lost horribly

      I corrected your dishonest quote to expose your shameful bias.

      Democrats were slaughtered in the 2014 election. Obama says he gets the message …. from all those who voted against hnm … and the much larger group of voters who could not vote for EITHER side. So YOU claim Obama said he NOTcare PLUS that refusing to vote means agreeing with Obama!!! And you said it in public!

      Now, one could plausibly argue. and support. that Obama did not get the message … but to lie so blatantly about what he did say is indeed shameless. But all too common in the tribal mentality (both sides).

      I’d crawl a mile on my hands and knees if it would get both him and Biden out of office. But I’d never dive head first into a gutter filled with human waste.

      Nobody ever went broke underestimating the intelligence of the American public
      H.L. Mencken

      1. *hands over towel to wipe drool off chin*

          1. Aggression, called out as lie … defended by two other bullies

            *CLOUDBUSTER: Were whites rioting all over the country before the Charleston shooting? I must have missed that.

            Chapman said or implied that? I must have missed it
            Why bother quoting him then lying about what you cited?

            *(aggression by WTF) WOOOOSH!!!

            Which words? Be specific.
            (snicker)

            *WTF bully/coward NEEDZ MORE CAPS AND BULLYING!!!!!

            *third aggressor, Swiss Servator MOAR GIGGLING!!!

            (smirk of triumph) One racist lie, three bullies = bullshit proven

            Like a free market, cyber-bullies and aggression — banned everywhere else — grow at the only political site refusing to moderate comments.

            Libertarians had been publicly humiliated to 100,000+ at Popehat.com (Even Cato linked this disgrace)

            Reason.com, a leading libertarian website whose clever writing is eclipsed only by the blowhard stupidity of its commenting peanut gallery.

            Followed by debate on feeding people into woodchippers, feet first or head first … which Reason editors defended as free speech, true but publicly disgracing our movement

            So Reason became a “safe zone” for militant racists. And a Cato survey found the libertarian brand rejected by 91% of libertarians. Gary Johnson is dead in the water.
            Anyone else ashamed?

            1. I don’t believe that Reason is a safe zone or any militant racists other than you, and I am not so sure about you. Blatantly racist comments tend to get put down pretty quickly here.

              There is truth in some of what you point out though. Most of those who claim to be libertarian, do not want to be associated with Libertarian. I am one of those who was a Libertarian, and decided that the party is pretty much self defeating and dominated by loony tunes folks without a strong link to reality.

              Now, you should be pleased that his site does not moderate comments, as most of yours would be moderated elsewhere. I wish you would kick it down a couple of notches, but I do appreciate that you are not moderated here and prefer that all comments be permitted.

              No, I am not ashamed. I am disappointed that we don’t have a viable 3rd party, but Libertarians do not have a reputation of being good at the nuts and bolts of politics. The truth is Libertarians do not have track record of being good at getting things accomplished on local levels and that is where it starts.

              The conversations involving Wood Chippers etc, are hyperbole. Intelligent people can easily identify the comments as such. The problem with moderation, is it leads to the shit that gets practiced at other sites, where I would have had to spell that word $H1T to avoid moderation delays or deletion.

      2. Heh. That is not a Mencken quote.

        1. Hmm…you’re right.

          But Mencken wrote a bestselling memoir, if memory serves.

          1. Beware. If you dare to correct a liar in their gang .. and link to proof of the lie … count how many aggressions. Attack, attack, attack. Like a pack of wild dogs,

            1. You’re the main aggressor here.

          2. The Fusionist|7.15.16 @ 10:09AM|#
            Hmm…you’re right.

            One source vs well over 100. (sigh)

        2. Suthenboy
          Heh. That is not a Mencken quote.

          If I said this is July, the aggressors would say August … and they’d all agree!

  5. If a person who opposes the Obama administration’s transgender bathroom policy is just like a Klansman, why even discuss the matter?

    Same reason we fought a revolution. Individual liberty. Deal with it.

    Obama’s exploitation of five dead cops is equally despicable as those on the right, both exploiting five dead cops to pursue a tribal agenda> And why does Reason not condemn conservatives and/or Republicans as a group? (Might it piss off the Paulista cult that Reason panders to?) Taking sides is fine, but not for purely tribal reasons.

    If you continually claim that every problem in America is driven by hate, people may start believing you.

    If you keep fomenting hysteria with the same excuses as the haters, people may start believing you. Ooops, too late.

    What if millions of Americans had seen absolute proof, on video, that one of David’s kids was pinned to the ground by two cops and shot to death (4 shots from maybe 2″ away), would he advise the rest of his family to keep a stiff upper lip and stop whining?

    (Before the onslaught of attacks by goobers here, provide evidence that anyone claims “every problem in America uis driven by hate” while misrepresenting the President’s words to those eager to believe anything.)

    1. Corpsefucking a thread is not very persuasive.

      1. Yeah, but he’s practically a corpse himself, so….

        1. Look, I can’t recall too many folks, and certainly few here, that do not think the cops need to be reformed and dialed back. That does not make them the Klan.

          The Klan comments are cheap shots when the real issue is that the cops often operate like a military unit with a “with us or against us” view. They begin to see themselves as “the brotherhood of cops” against everyone else. It is one of the (many) reasons that police departments should not be militarized.

          This mentality, leads to criminal behavior by cops, leads to organized crime (MAFIA) style behavior in fact. Complete with hits, street beatings, and all the rest of it. This is not usually race related so much as it is crime, or “respect” related.

          The cops do this to non-blacks as much as whites (although not proportionately). It is not primarily a race thing. This means you can’t fix it, with racial sensitivity training. It is a natural development of large police departments used to regulate a population where anything can be a crime. It is also a natural development of criminalizing “vice” where the police learn to put up a show of enforcement and look the other way at the right time, and for the right compensation.

          The single largest problem with identifying everything as racial bias, is that it makes real reform LESS likely.

      2. How stupid can Swiss Servator be? Well. … (laughjng)

        Corpsefucking a thread is not very persuasive.

        “Corpsefucking a thread” means posting to a dead thread. I posted at 3:44 am on the day this was published! … and five hours before Swiss Savator! (and all their gang) (smirk).

        Bullies attack. Aggressors aggress. Especially when their earlier bullying is jammed up their ass
        https://reason.com/archives/201…..nt_6264395

        And haters hate …..

        1. So why ARE you a bullying aggressive hater?

  6. You order the killing of a young teen and his friends eating breakfast and you are goddamn right I am not with you. How could any rational person, even a very left-wing one, excuse that behaviour? So his dad was a bad guy…okay why was John Gotti’s teenage son not imprisoned along with his dad? He MIGHT grow up to be a mobster, right?

    As for the arguments that books are hard to find in poor areas, how about Goodwill stores? They are not, and they sell used books – cheap. How about those failing schools in poor areas? I don’t think lack of any books is why they fail. And don’t get me started on computers. Is the man not aware that cell phones have computers built right into them? How many poor people don’t have a cell phone? Give me a break.

    1. Just curious, anyone ever heard of fucking AMAZON? Most kids, even in the inner city, actually have those phone gizmos from which, you know, you can order shit.

      1. Do not schools / municipalities have libraries? One does not have to buy a book to benefit from it.

        1. Of course they do. We have dozens of well-stocked libraries across the city. (A perfect place for the bums to stay warm in the winter, too!)

          What the dumb shit should say, is that in some neighborhoods, a Glock is more desirable than a book.

          1. Kind of like having a kind word and a gun, instead of just a kind word?

      2. Good point. They have smartphones. Those ARE computers. And they dont need books with the internet at their fingertips. Kindle app among others, and millions of free books, not to mention other educational materials. Besides, dont we fund free internet for the poor? Obamaphones? Etc.

        1. dont we fund free internet for the poor?

          No

          Obamaphones?

          The “Lifeline” program traces to the Reagan Administration. The rightwing Ministers of Propaganda said it was Obama’s program .. and it spread though the Internet like all the anonymous conspiracy emails. In Tribal America, a shrinking minority of Americans accept anything said in their tribe, on blind faith, especially if it attacks the other tribe..

          On the left they believe the rich don’t pay their share of taxes. In fact, the subsidy to the core middle class paid by the rich is so large that the core middle class would face a 60% tax INCREASE to pay their own share! (Core middle class is my own research term. I’ve tracked their share of taxes for over 20 years, currently using $40,000-100,000 AGI)

          So America has bullshit bouncing off every wall!

          1. Michael,

            The point made was that the smartphones of the poor exist. No one even said it was a bad thing that they had “Obama Phones”. It does not matter why, or how, they have them. They point is that they actually have them.

            The rest of your post is a WTF? and completely off topic.

    2. +1 Obamaphones

    3. As for the arguments that books are hard to find in poor areas, how about Goodwill stores? They are not, and they sell used books – cheap.

      If they have the title you want. But nobody said the books were unavailable, only that they were harder to get. I recently checked Goodwill locations in four major cities I’ve lived in, Found only one in what I recall to be a low-income neighborhood.

      Some of you folks need to get a life.

      1. Your lack of self awareness is truly breathtaking.

    4. Plenty of people put out books to give away. Seriously, books are (a substantial amount of) garbage.

  7. It’s what psychologists call “projection”. Mofo assumes that everyone is as much of a hateful, enraged SOB as he is.

    1. Projection is pretty much what the left does in general.

      1. Yes, those cops are murderers, and should be prosecuted and put in jail, as should any cop who does something like that.

        But in your mind, that justifies the president unleashing his dogs to engage in revenge killings? You sound like an Obama momma.

        1. But in your mind, that justifies the president unleashing his dogs to engage in revenge killings? You sound like an Obama momma

          Only a total asshat bigot would assume what’s in my mind ,,, and even fuckup what I was responding to.
          In was responding to the lame bullshit about projection … which was even stated stupidly.
          It’s even wackier to claim the President has encouraged revenge killings — a level of hysteria which puts you squarely with the very worst BLM activists. But that’s tribal politics these days.

          So your Obama momma comment has outed you as one hell of a partisan bigot. READY FIRE AIM
          Any more questions or totally irresponsible claims?

          1. Your response to my comment was a totally fucking retarded attempt at a diversion and had nothing whatsoever to do with the point of the article in the first place, which is that Obama intentionally divides the country for political gain.

            A real leader would respond to terrible incidents like these in a much more responsible and unifying way. But of course you think his divisive and hateful responses are fine, because you’re an Obama momma.

            1. Blowhards go rogue when exposed … even lying about comments in plain sight!! (lol)

              Asshat:

              But in your mind, that justifies the president unleashing his dogs to engage in revenge killings? You sound like an Obama momma.

              Victim:

              Psycho attempts shell game … says I was commenting on the article! Diversion … WHO?

              But of course you think his divisive and hateful responses are fine,

              Never mentioned, chump.

              because you’re an Obama momma.

              THIS is a psychopath. With an ego deficiency

              (Tone and Boldface responds to aggression by a thug)

              1. If you can’t assemble a compelling argument, it is always better to use boldface and caps.

                1. I don;t think i’ve overpaid this about anyone here before, even PB, Tony, or AmSoc, but can we get rid of this guy? He’s threadjacking and trolling to a point where the whole comment section is just sorting through his horseshit. Most of which he cuts and pastes repetitively.

                  Are his comments fair game for the spam button?

  8. We are better than this, he says.

    Uh, apparently *not*.

  9. Yes, there are racists and bigots in all our institutions and communities, but most Americans don’t need to “open our hearts” on the subject simply because liberals accuse them of harboring ugly thoughts.

    Nuh uh… I was told by a liberal that I can be a racist piece of shit without being a Klansman

    1. Check your privilege, racist. You don’t have to say, do, or even think anything, you are racist because you do not belong to a bona fide victim group.

      And somebody has to be the bad guy, capiche? Otherwise who would they blame for their own problems?

    2. Most Americans don’t need to “open our hearts” on the subject simply because liberals accuse them of harboring ugly thoughts.

      Nuh uh… I was told by a liberal that I can be a racist piece of shit without being a Klansman

      So don’t open your heart on the subject. duh

  10. Holy shit. The talking heads are going nuts this morning. Obumbles is getting the most blistering criticism I have heard to date…I mean they are finally taking the gloves off.

    My wife – “What the hell? Are they using your posts on Reason for the last 8 years as a script?”

    I guess reality eventually sinks in.

    Conversation with a friend –
    Me – “If you let savages in your country this is what you get. Savagery.”

    Friend – “Thats crazy. You cant say things like that. It’s racist.”

    Me – “It’s not crazy, it’s obvious. Living in a fantasy world is crazy.”

  11. Hmmm, you’re either with us or agin us, eh? I’ve heard that before actually said, and not implied, as Harsanyi does.

    Oh that’s right, GW Bush’s exhortation for the misbegotten Iraq adventure. One Harsanyi helped sell at the outset.

    Good try, Harsanyi. Check the mirror.

    1. Sept. 13, 2001, seven days before Bush’s use of the phrase, Senator Hillary Clinton said, “Every nation has to either be with us or against us. Those who harbor terrorists or who finance them are going to pay a price.” Maybe Bush borrowed that rhetoric from her?

      1. Bush is the biggest monster since Hitler and the fact that you tried to smear Her Excelency by tying his statement to her shows how much of a Team Red cheerleader you are. Also, you’re a misogynist.

        /sarc

        1. I’m self-flagellating right now. (Sad face, bowed head)

        2. I truly detest Bush, but “biggest monster since Hitler” So hard, there is SO much competition for that title.

      2. He may have. After all, she was a big supporter of the Iraq War. And Bush got his marching orders from many people I guess, maybe not just Cheney. Clinton too!

        And still…Harsanyi as well. He still needs to look in the mirror. But thanks.

      3. This link has the RESULTS of a Google search EVERY listing on the first two pages credits Hillary. None attribute it to Bush.Then I searched for just “Every nation has to either be with us or against us.” Looks like your source was lying.

        1. I am not disagreeing with you, I don’t know.

          I have gotten back in the habit of using Dogpile as a search aggregator though. Google is censoring responses pretty extensively it seems, so I like getting results from a variety of search engines in hopes of getting more complete results.

    2. GW Bush’s exhortation for the misbegotten Iraq adventure.

      It is comforting to see your memory is as weak as everything else in your intellect. What Bush said was And we will pursue nations that provide aid or safe haven to terrorism. Every nation, in every region, now has a decision to make. Either you are with us, or you are with the terrorists. And he was talking about the perpetrators of 9-11.

      1. Thanks.

        It’s still use of the same kind of argument mentioned above. One that Harsanyi has disdain for. Unless of course it supports something he believes in. He’s not big on principle.

        1. It’s still use of the same kind of argument mentioned above.

          I’m looking for a good set of portable goalposts, where did you find yours, at the Sports Authority liquidation sale?

        2. Of course the big difference is that Obama is saying that to the American people, not countries aiding and abetting terrorist.

          But you knew that, didn’t you?

          1. Of course the big difference is that Obama is saying that to the American people, not countries aiding and abetting terrorist. But you knew that, didn’t you?

            Of course Obama appears nowhere in his thread. But you knew that, didn’t you?

            1. good point, how DID Obama get to be part of quotes by Clinton and Bush?

  12. “a kind of spiritual certitude that justifies circumventing debate.”

    Pretty much explains it. I don’t care, if you disagree you are a racist, misogynist, hate children, are blind to your privilege, or just an all around retrograde troglodyte.

    I been called all of them. And yet “I’m as happy as a June bug.”

  13. We will put our boots to the neck of those who disagree with us, thats some uniting words form Obama right from the start, and they call republicans racist.

  14. We’re going to need a collective shower after this fool.

  15. If by racist he means smarter and better looking, then yeah..

  17. RE: How Obama Divides America
    You’re either with him or one of the bad guys

    One must realize that Dear Leader does not divide the untermenschen here in the USA. There are only doubters and racists who oppose him and his wise socialist policies. Such people are obviously either unenlightened in the judicious policies of socialist thought or counter-revolutionaries capitalist pigs that are working for the nefarious Koch brothers. We must all be grateful for Dear Leader’s wise policies of increasing our national debt, pushing socialized medicine, engaging in selective cronyism with British Petroleum, Solyandra, etc., and keeping our armed forces in Iraq and other places so they can continue to engage in realistic war games. I think I can speak for everyone here that it will be a sad day when Dear Leader will no longer leading us toward the conclusion of the Great People’s Revolution.

    1. On behalf of everyone here (almost), I want to express our gratitude for your fine efforts.
      We’re now more aware of the raging hatred faced by blacks in America. But I guess that’s better than hanging them and burning crosses. Progress in race relations!
      Ooops, I just puked on my keyboard

      1. Of course Comrade Michael.
        If you don’t follow every word of Dear Leader’s with baited breath, you must be racist.
        Just like if you don’t believe Heil Hitary’s words with baited breath, you must be a misogynist.
        Good thinking from a socialist totalitarian turd.

        1. Uncle Jay — another screwup

          If you don’t follow every word of Dear Leader’s with baited breath, you must be racist

          Strike One

          Just like if you don’t believe Heil Hitary’s words with baited breath, you must be a misogynist.

          Strike Two

          Good thinking from a socialist totalitarian turd.

          Says the partisan bigot for Strike Three.

          This is the web archive of my published writing Check anything on Taxes, Healthcare and Federalism. Ooops.

          (Partisan bigots, aka goobers,. assign negative stereotypes to entire groups, by definition. As we learned in high school. )

          1. I make no bones I’m a libertarian.
            BTW, your web archive won’t pop up, just like anything sane that will pop up in your empty socialist slaving mind.

  18. summary of leftist delusions: we’re all a bunch of racists and even if we’ve never done or said anything racist to anyone, we’re just a racist for not recognizing our own racism.

    1. ^THIS^

      You must realize that your failure to openly engage in racism against members those races that have in the past had members engaged in racist behavior is prima facia evidence of your racistm. The lack of appropriate racism is racist comrade.

      1. MJBinAL,

    2. I think it’s funny how most leftists love to mock religion, particularly Christianity, yet their philosophy pretty much boils down to “you have all sinned and you can only redeem yourselves by submitting to the will of the Democrat Party”.

  19. as did Bush…as do they all

  20. According to the Drug Policy Alliance:

    Although rates of drug use and selling are comparable across racial lines, people of color are far more likely to be stopped, searched, arrested, prosecuted, convicted and incarcerated for drug law violations than are whites.

    http://www.drugpolicy.org/race-and-drug-war

    Who supports the racist war on drugs?
    Obama.
    Therefore Obama is racist.

    1. Do you write for The Onion?

  21. Excellent article Mr. Harsanyi. Spot on.

  22. Maybe one day Obo will make a speech that isn’t about him. Maybe.

    1. Go read this one. See how totally you’ve been duped,
      Maybe one day you’ll care. Maybe.

  23. At the funeral service for five slain Dallas cops, President Barack Obama delivered another one of his needlessly politicized lectures. As is customary these days, those who were critical of his rhetoric were branded racists and unthinking haters

    That’s one theory.

    And one totally shameful and disgusting lie..
    When did Reason die?
    Did I miss the funeral? Or is this it?

  24. Let’s just say it, the “new” Democrats are the Nihilist zealots of old, with a 17th century Calvinist’s absolute assurance of the sanctity of their righteous agenda.

    1. Thanks. Watching the battle between them and the REAL Calvinists — today’s Christians Taliban — is literally a nightmare in stereophonic sound. Fascists fighting fascists,

  25. ,,it’s been a long time since we’ve had a president as divisive as Barack Obama.
    ‘A, so very true comment.

  26. Barak Obama in actuality is a very small man in mental capacity and depth. He has no real character or moral code. He simply doesn’t have the mental strength to analyze problems. His rhetoric is pretty much the same when he address every problem. He either blames conservative, the police or racism. I don’t think he is mentally equipped to solve the root cause of problems. His shallowness is evident by how he reacts to a tragedy. He goes on vacation or to the golf course and leaves his underlings to take care of them. If anyone thinks that Hillary Clinton is much different they will have a rude awakening.
