This is. Absolutely. Astonishing
From The Daily Caller:
President Barack Obama accused Republicans Friday of engaging in violence similar to that employed by anti-Trump rioters in San Jose, California, Thursday night.
President Obama, talking to individuals at a Democratic National Committee fundraising event in Miami, said, “It is very important for us to remind ourselves of who we are and what is best about American democracy and not slip into some of the bad habits that currently manifest themselves in the other party.”
He explained, “We saw in San Jose these protesters starting to pelt stuff on Trump supporters. That’s not what our democracy is about. That’s not what you do. There’s no room for violence. There’s no place for shouting. There’s no room for a politics that fails to at least listen to the other side – even if you vehemently disagree. Because I believe if you’ve got the better argument, then you don’t need to do that. Just go out there and organize and persuade.”
Obama, never mentioning Donald Trump, then said, “I want our democracy to work in such a way that eventually — and I’ve been waiting a while now – and eventually the Republican fever breaks and they become once again a sensible center-right party that can have a coherent policy debate with us and we can actually get some stuff done. But that doesn’t happen if we start digging into absolutist positions and aren’t willing to compromise and are resorting to some of the same kinds of tactics they’ve been engaging in for quite some time.”
With no due respect to the POS who is presiding over America on borrowed time….What the F**K is he talking about?!?
When…WHEN…has there EVER been a comparable example of Hillary supporters, Bernie supporters, or his supporters being cornered and egged, tomatoed, and spit upon like this woman. Or hit in the head with a bag of something that causes bleeding from the ear only to have the s**thead coward slink back into the crowd in order to remain undetected by this guy’s assailant.
Given conservatives are the ones with the guns and military backgrounds if we were as violent as Obama says we are there wouldn’t be a liberal problem in America anymore.
This rat bastard SOB (remember, I said no due respect) isn’t misperceiving what is happening out there in campaign land. He is LYING. Conservatives aren’t the violent ones. Leftist, like Barack Obama, have literally called for violent revolution for decades. Leftist are the ones blockading and shutting down conservatives from being heard at college campuses, burning their conservative opposition in effigy, creating artwork that depicts conservatives killing themselves, issuing death threats to conservatives for admitting their politics on social media (like Stacy Dash, for example), staging violent protests (masked thugs with molotov cocktails at any economic summit) and movements where arrests are commonplace, people have been shot and killed, and women are raped (like the Occupy movement).
There is no similar action or rhetoric on the right, it doesn’t exist. None.
What is being done to Trump supporters is happening precisely because the left doesn’t have “the better argument” Obama crows about. When it comes to arguing illegal immigration one side wants accountability (conservatives, and Trump supporters) and the other side wants more illegal immigration (Obama, Democrats, and illegal immigrants)…that’s why “the better argument” in Obama’s eyes literally beats the crap out of people who want accountability, because no rational and sane person thinks more of an illegal anything is “better.” So the beatings by leftist thugs will commence until the actual better argument is intimidated into silence.
It’s so galling because Democrats hear Obama’s words and they believe it’s true even as we are seeing how demonstrably dishonest they are. This goes beyond diverging perspectives on politics and philosophy. When a woman is cornered by a bunch of men and spit upon for her political beliefs and leftist leaders say “yeah, that sucks, but Republicans do it too,” when they NEVER do it ever, Democrats aren’t just confused, they’re liars and worse, because they’re enabling and encouraging. They are a cancer not on democracy, but on civilized society as a whole.
