Just when you think Barky is fresh out of stupid, he pulls more out of his ass.
During his speech at the Coast Guard Commencement ceremonies, Obama warned that climate change was part of the reason behind increasing violence in countries around the world.
Obama pointed out that under his administration, the Pentagon had begun identifying climate change as a “threat multiplier” in world conflicts, although he was careful not to put all the blame on changing weather patterns.
“Understand, climate change did not cause the conflicts we see around the world, yet what we also know is that severe drought helped to create the instability in Nigeria that was exploited by the terrorist group Boko Haram,” he said.
He also claimed that climate change was partially responsible for the brutal civil war in Syria.
“It’s now believed that drought, crop failures, and high food prices helped fuel the early unrest in Syria, which descended into civil war in the heart of the Middle East,” he said.
Except for the fact that instability, terrorism, and drought have been part of Nigeria, Syria and every other Islamic-dominated country on the continent of Africa, for ages.
Barky aslo says that if you don’t take the “climate change” meme seriously, you’re derelict in your duties:
“Climate change is one of those most severe threats. This is not just a problem for countries on the coasts or for certain regions of the world. Climate change will impact every country on the planet. No nation is immune. So I am here today to say that climate change constitutes a serious threat to global security, an immediate risk to our national security.
“If you see storm clouds gathering or dangerous shoals ahead you don’t just sit back and do nothing,” Obama said Wednesday. “You take action to protect your ship, to keep your crew safe. Anything less is negligence. It is a dereliction of duty. So to with climate change.”
“Denying it or refusing to deal with it endangers our national security,” Obama also said. “It undermines the readiness of our forces.”
When the “global warming” schtick failed, they switched to “climate change” to cover all the political bases. It’s been attributed to everything from tsunamis to massive snowfalls, to Blackhawk Down, and cow flatulence.
Secondly, between his moral relativism toward Islam and the fact that he’s a craven douchebag who thinks we should play patty cake with an enemy who wants us all dead, Obama is the biggest threat to national security we’ve got.
His preferences are racists, gays, and illegals. The military is at the bottom of the list.
I feel so sorry for the military service members who have to serve under this worthless, imbecilic, insufferable shitbag. He is totally unfit and unworthy of the title of Commander-in-Chief.
