Barack Obama's 'Broad Brush' U.N. Speech
Again, Barack Obama graced the United Nations podium with his presence. In a speech long on rhetoric and short on reality, the president shared with the General Assembly his view of the world. The only thing missing was Yusuf Islam, aka Cat Stevens, softly accompanying Obama with an updated version of “Peace Train.”
Frankly, when Obama cites “the prospect of war between major powers reduced … Hundreds of millions of human beings … freed from the prison of poverty, and the world economy strengthening,” it’s hard to tell what planet he came from.
Apparently Barry hasn’t noticed, but World War III is geared up, and pasting a smiley face on severed heads isn’t going to change that. Then there’s China. Obama conveniently forgot to mention that if China is taken out of the equation, his rosy economic picture changes markedly.
Nevertheless, thanks to Common Core, ObamaCare, and “Hope and Change,” the president said he reminds American youth that, for those who manage to make it out of the womb alive, this is the “best time in history to be born.”
“And yet,” the president said, “there is a pervasive unease in our world.”
For Obama, that “pervasive unease” probably emanates from Ebola, Russians arming Ukrainians instead of the Syrian separatists, and ISIL ruining everyone’s appetite with kitchen-knife decapitations.
Obama’s favorite Saul Alinsky reference to “the world [as] it should be” even reared its ugly head. This time it was “we choose to work for the world as it should be, as our children deserve it to be.”
It sounded as though Barack blamed the atrocity of well-to-do jihadists butchering live human beings on the civilized world not “confront[ing] forcefully enough the intolerance, sectarianism, and hopelessness that feeds violent extremism in too many parts of the globe.”
Then Obama segued into a lecture on the benefits of “cooperation” over “conquest,” the deprecation of modern weaponry, and how the “cause of empire leads to the graveyard.”
From there it was on to chastising Russia for pouring “arms into Eastern Ukraine [and] fueling violent separatists,” which is what Obama does in Muslim countries every chance he gets.
The president criticizing a “world in which one nation’s borders can be redrawn by another” sounded like he mixed up Mexico with Russia. Either way, throughout the speech, he made it clear that if Putin does what Obama demands, America will gladly work with Russia.
Mentioning the futility of the belief that “might makes right,” Obama said that he believes that “right makes might,” which is a catchy slogan sure to electrify both Vladimir Putin and ISIL.
Moving right along, and notwithstanding his approval of the IRS bullying the little guy, Obama went on to mention that “bigger nations should not be able to bully smaller ones.” And unless freedom entails owning a gun or choosing one’s own doctor, the president said he supports nations and peoples being free to make their own decisions.
What followed was "we are the world" globalist crazy talk. Obama spoke of solving “problems together … mutual interests and … respect.” One small problem: ISIS has no mutual interests with the U.S. And while he’s disconnecting heads from shoulders, the last thing on Jihadi John’s mind is respect.
Then, despite 200,000 people from Ebola-stricken nations holding visas to travel to the U.S., the president, while still refusing to close the southern border, swore that America would help curtail the spread of Ebola.
Next it was Iran and how America “is pursuing a diplomatic resolution” – to a nuclear buildup by a genocidal nation unwavering in its desire to wipe Israel off the map.
After promising to eradicate extreme poverty by 2030 and save the planet for generations to come, Muslim apologist Barack Hussein Obama set out to once again remediate Islam in the eyes of a wary world.
It started with a “Terror is not a new weapon,” quote from John F. Kennedy. Then, alluding to ISIL, the president said that a “lethal and ideological brand of terrorists … have perverted one of the world’s great religions.” To give credibility to that view, Obama tied Islam to other religions, saying “Christianity endured centuries of vicious sectarian conflict.”
With words he uttered in front of the Turkish Parliament in 2009, Obama rejected “a clash of civilizations,” and assured the Muslim world, a large portion of which is at war or supports the war with America, that the “United States is not and never will be at war with Islam.”
That statement makes one wonder why Barack Obama continues to lump all gun owners together and neglected to distinguish the difference between the NRA and Jared Loughner at the Tucson Memorial.
First Obama promised that America wouldn’t “occupy lands” and vowed that “our entire foreign policy will not be based on ‘reacting to terrorism’.” Then he shared that “America has plenty of problems within its own borders,” most of which have ironically been exacerbated by the guy doing the apologizing.
Subsequently, the first African-American president brought up Ferguson, Missouri, and America’s racial and ethnic tensions. Dissing the founding fathers, Barack admitted that “America is a country that has steadily worked … to bridge the divides that existed at the founding of this nation. America is not the same as it was 100 … 50 years … or even a decade ago.”
Not to mention six years ago.
Lawless, non-transparent, unaccountable Barack Obama, whose administration censors the White House press pool, later said that in America “we hold our leaders accountable … insist on a free press and independent judiciary … we address our differences in the open space of democracy – with respect for the rule of law.”
Missing an opportunity to mention Muslim oppression of women or to coerce Ebola-stricken West Africa, in return for help with Ebola, to rethink its harsh stance on homosexuality, Obama ended the speech with his politically correct “no matter who you are, or who you love” line.
Besides taunting Russia, tackling Ebola, and offering his usual platitudes, by and large what stood out in this U.N. speech was Barack Obama, who reportedly just warned against “painting Islam with a broad brush,” making intricate distinctions within Islam while painting everything else with a broad brush.
