He’s right, of course, that too many politicians will do anything to hang on to their power, but he’s not including himself in that assessment. Apparently, he doesn’t view himself as that type of politician. He’s one with “principles.”
In the same speech before the State Department’s Young Southeast Asian Leaders Initiative, he said that one of his “core principles” was to never use politics to divide people. He said, in part:
“I know one of my core principles has always been treating everyone fairly. Whether that’s women or people of different races, or different religious faiths, or different sexual orientations.
“One of my core principles is that I will never engage in a politics in which I’m trying to divide people or make them less than me because they look different or have a different religion. That’s a core principle — that’s not something I’d violate.
“So if you have a clear view of what you stand for, then as you move forward, you’ll have setbacks, there will be times when you didn’t succeed, there will be times when you’re frustrated, you might even lose an election sometimes. But at least you’ll know every morning when you wake and you look at yourself in the mirror, ‘I know who I am and why I’m doing what I’m doing.’”
He actually very clearly described himself, who exhibits the same exact characteristics as those he condemned in others. He’s never engaged in politics to divide people? He’d never violate that “core principle?” That’s been his theme all along from the beginning.
Race relations are worse, religious relations are worse, political relations are worse…pretty much everything is worse now than before Obama took office, and he, his administration and media buddies seem to enjoy taking every opportunity possible to pit certain groups of people against each other for political gain.
He completely ignores certain cases and focuses intently on others, purely for political purposes, and it has the express purpose of dividing people.
There are serious and numerous cases of police brutality that don’t involve a white cop and a black victim. But he won’t mention those.
There are myriad cases of black-on-black and black-on-white violence that he won’t dare mention. He’ll only mention the distorted, biased versions of cases where a black guy was beat up or killed by a white guy and blame it all on white privilege and racism.
He uses children homicide victims as the emotional justification for more gun control but totally ignores all the cases where a law-abiding citizen used his gun to protect others and prevent a mass shooting. After all, they’re just Southerners who cling to their guns and religion.
He wants to give homosexuals and other members of the LGBTTQQFAGPBDSM community victim status, while forcing businesses to give these people special rights and privileges at the threat of being forced to shut down as a result of fines and lawsuits. After all, those business owners “didn’t build that.” The government helped them.
And he can’t bring himself to condemn radical Islamic terrorism and their jihad against Christians whom they behead everyday.
All these have the effect of dividing people, and everyone knows it’s for his own political gain. He’ll do and say anything to hold on to his power. He is his own worst enemy.
