On the heels of an utterly vulgar display of violence and mob insanity by leftist thugs opposed to the candidacy of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump in San Jose, California on Thursday, President Obama used his ‘bully pulpit’ to condemn the violence, which he characterized as ‘bad habits’ normally found among those calling themselves Republicans.
President Barack Obama on Friday chastised opponents of Donald Trump for engaging in violence at a rally for the presumptive GOP nominee the previous night.
“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,” Obama said at a Democratic National Committee private event in Miami, according to a pool report. “We saw in San Jose these protesters starting to pelt stuff at 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,” he continued. “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.”
Protesters and supporters of Trump clashed in the streets of San Jose, California, Thursday night after the billionaire held a rally. As Trump supporters exited the rally, protesters shouted insults at them and accused them of being racists.
As usual, Obama failed to take any responsibility for his role in the bitter confrontation between citizen Trump and supporters and the violent protesters comprised of mostly Hispanic racists, many in the US illegally.
In fact, as President, Barack Obama has done every thing in his power to circumvent the rule of law with regard to US immigration law and the invasion of our sovereign nation from south of our border.
Obama’s most egregious act involves Executive Orders issued to contravene existing law in order to shield illegal aliens, mostly Hispanics, from deportation called for by the law.
Those Executive Orders have been challenged before the US Supreme Court, with a decision expected this month.
Although SCOTUS may invalidate Obama’s Executive Orders later this month, either directly or by default in the event of a 4-4 deadlock, the fact remains that the President of the US actively encouraged a large segment of the population to believe that they are, by reason of race or ethnicity, above the law.
Facilitating that sort of un-American thinking inevitably leads to the violence and chaos that caused protesters to believe that denying Trump supporters their free speech rights was acceptable behavior.
After all, they reason, Obama abused his presidential powers in defense of those Hispanics here illegally, why not a smidgen of violence for the cause on behalf of “The Race”?
Sadly, the issue is all about partisan politics and Obama’s lust for expanding Democrat Party numbers, regardless of the effect on the rest of the nation and our constitutional rights!
