Both Obama and Hillary have now advised “resistance and persistence” to their Democrat constituents. Now that might not read “GET THAT JERK TRUMP” to you, but it does me. What kind of an ex-president and ex-Sec of State, Senator, First Lady, etc., would promote RESISTANCE when you know that has involved injuries, fires, blocking free speech, etc.? Do they even think twice about how far that could go? Do they care that it could do such damage to our collective psyches, our communities and to our country? Do they even care? HERE is what Hillary’s saying…here is a clip from the link: “The challenges we face as a party and a country are real,” a smiling Clinton said. “So now more than ever, we need to stay engaged in the field and online, reaching out to new voters, young people and everyone who wants a better, stronger, fairer America.””
HERE is Obama telling people in Germany: “I suspect that there’s not a president in our history that hasn’t been subject to these protests,” he answered. “So, I would not advise people who feel strongly or who are concerned about some of the issues that have been raised during the course of the campaign, I wouldn’t advise them to be silent.” Oh, he feels so big and important as an ex president mouthing off in European against our elected president, doesn’t he?
His nastiness continues:
“If we are not serious about facts and what is true and what is not. Particularly in an age of social media when people are getting their information in soundbites and snippets … if we cannot discriminate between serious arguments and propaganda, then we have problems,” he said.
I think some presidents have had protesters…I think Trump’s have been over the top. I admire Obama’s rhetoric; makes him almost sound fair and even-handed……I wish Trump had a tiny bit of that way of speaking, just a tiny bit; saying things that really slam the other side but make it sound like you’re complimenting them…typical Obama.
I can understand Obama and Hillary, staunch Leftwingers, hating Trump and Conservatism; I can’t understand their knowing that Trump was legally elected and at least deserves a chance to win over all Americans. Or, maybe they do?
When I think of the dignity Bush showed even as Obama blamed most everything on him……
