He never misses an opportunity to slander America, especially while on the soil of a authoritarian cesspool.
Lest you thought Obama spent all of his time abroad this week acting like a tourist — sightseeing, taking in a ballgame, tangoing with Argentine beauties — be reassured, he still found plenty of time to point out the many flaws he sees in America.
Between his stays in Havana and Buenos Aires, we counted at least 15 times Obama talked down his employer, The United States of America.
Specifically, he said …
America must have the “courage to acknowledge” its role in Argentina’s human-rights abuses
America can’t be slow talking about human-rights violations, as we’ve done in Argentina
The Constitution’s separation of powers makes it hard for America to adapt to the changing times
America must do more to promote equality
America needs to reduce discrimination
America suffers from “political polarization”
America was built by slaves
America has too much money in politics
America has a problem with racially-biased criminal justice system, a racially-biased society, and a legacy of slavery & segregation
Many American states would have forbidden his biracial parents to marry — had they tried
Many American schools in the south were segregated when he was young
American democracy is imperfect
America’s political process is not pretty, as evidenced by the current 2016 race
Cuba’s Castro’s more readily sharing his thoughts on where America is “falling short” will help us improve
He “doesn’t disagree” with Castro’s view that America should provide “free” health care, education, and social security to all
UPDATE: It appears we’ve montaged too early. Here are three more criticisms he leveled on his homeland:
At a townhall in Buenos Aires, said one area Americans need to improve is developing “a greater awareness of the world outside of the United States.”
At the same townhall, Obama said the Republican Party is no longer a “mainstream” political party, and that it’s become far more right-wing as a result of its opposition to him.
Finally, he critiqued the tendency in American politics to focus so much on “sound bites,” which he attributed to skepticism of global warming.
To sum it up:
America is bad.
Constitutional safeguards like Checks and Balances make it hard for him to become the total dictator he envisioned.
Endless lectures on the antiquated practice of slavery and segregation are a convenient whipping post for America’s transgressions, both real and imagined.
Fling the “racial bias” invective, ignoring the culpability of the black community for its own condition.
The political process is not ‘pretty’, especially considering the vulgarity, race-baiting, voter fraud, intimidation, jackbooted oppression, union thuggery, unhinged nutbags, and violence so prevalent in the Dem party.
He takes advice from a Communist dictator who kept his impoverished country in the dark ages for over 50 years, on how to “improve America” and fix the “shortfalls”.
Taxpayers, especially the evil wealthy white establishment, should be bled dry to pay for all the “free” education, failed ObamaCare, and social security.
The rampage and carnage by muzzie cutthroats apparently isn’t enough to make us aware of the world outside the U.S.
Lastly, America is bad.
Shut the fuck up, Barky. As of 20 January 2017, your embarrassing, worthless ass will be gone from the White House and relegated to history’s dumpster of epic fails.
