Obama bashes US, tells Asian leaders to avoid the ‘pitfalls’ of America

obama-avoidIt’s quite clear President Obama really hates America, and he has no problem bashing the country that elected him twice every chance he gets.  This time, Obama was speaking at a town-hall event in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, when he told young Asian leaders to avoid the “pitfalls” of America.

What, exactly, are those “pitfalls?”  According to a report at the Washington Times, “income inequality, a political system controlled by the wealthy and political parties divided along racial lines.”  Translation: America sucks because of racism, Republicans and rich people.

The Times added:

“It is very important to avoid any political system where money overwhelms ideas,” said Mr. Obama, who raised a record $1.1 billion for his reelection campaign in 2012. “And the United States politics process has become so expensive and it lasts so long, and even though I was successful at it, we spend hundreds of millions of dollars in television advertising and in all the things that go into a U.S. presidential campaign.”

He added, “When politicians have to raise so much money all the time, then they start listening a little bit more to the people who have money, as opposed to ordinary people.”

In response to a question from the audience, Mr. Obama also said politics in the U.S. “increasingly is defined by personal attacks and saying very sensational things in the media.” He urged young Asian leaders to try “to debate people you disagree with, without saying that they’re a terrible person.”

Odd, coming from a man who frequently engages in outlandish rhetoric, even telling Hispanics to “punish their enemies,” meaning Republicans.  His allies in the so-called “mainstream media” have even suggested he use the military to take out conservative Republicans and members of the Tea Party.

“I really hope that all of you are fighting against the kinds of attitudes where you organize political parties or you organize interest groups just around ethnic or racial or tribal lines,” Obama said. “Because when you start doing that, it’s very easy for people to start thinking that whoever is not part of my group is somehow less than me. And once that mindset comes in, that’s how violence happens. That’s how discrimination happens. And societies that are divided ethnically and racially are almost never successful over the long term.”

Exit question: Wonder if he was thinking of La Raza or the DNC-approved Black Lives Matter movement when he said that?
