Obama warns against too much Patriotism on Independence Day

Yeah, I know, Obama is not president anymore, so we really should not give a hoot about what he thinks, or what he says.  The problem is, he keeps inserting himself into politics, and there is still an audience willing to believe his stupidity, so it is important to report on it, and counter it.

The Democrats get nervous every year when Independence Day comes around.  The patriotism that is filling the air fills them with fear.  When people get patriotic, they start noticing how unpatriotic the Democrat Party truly is.  Communists like the ones in the Democrat Party hate love of country, and would rather you celebrate love of government.  Besides, all of those patriotic people on Independence Day like to go out and talk about how much they love America, appreciate the founding of this country, and then start lighting explosives to celebrate the winning of a war against the British Empire to earn that independence.

The horror of it all!

It's enough to anger Democrats to their core.

What's next?  Conservatives running around firing their guns?

Obama wants to make sure you understand that your patriotism is dangerous, and so while in his childhood home and Muslim-majority country, Indonesia, he warned a Muslim audience of the dangers of ‘aggressive nationalism’ (you know, like that of Donald J. Trump, and his supporters) while he praised Islamic Indonesia.

He apparently prefers Indonesia's Islamism where they publicly caned a woman for kissing her boyfriend and sentenced a Christian Governor to prison for ‘blaspheming the Quran’.

Barack Obama warned against patriotism, and instead claimed all we need is love.  Not God's love.  He meant the collective communist version of loving the collective good through government mandates, where government forces their definition of tolerance, moderation and respect for others.  Patriotism like that of Trump's supporters, according to Obama, could lead to chaos and violence.

Some countries have adopted “an aggressive kind of nationalism” and “increased resentment of minority groups”, Obama said in a speech in Indonesia.

“If we don’t stand up for tolerance and moderation and respect for others, if we begin to doubt ourselves and all that we have accomplished, then much of the progress that we have made will not continue,” he said.

Progress?  During his presidency?  Progress towards chaos, maybe.

“What we will see is more and more people arguing against democracy, we will see more and more people who are looking to restrict freedom of the press, and we’ll see more intolerance, more tribal divisions, more ethnic divisions, and religious divisions and more violence.”

First, I hope he wasn't saying America is a democracy, because we're not.  We are a republic.

Second, as he said this, did he consider Islam's intolerance, tribal divisions, ethnic divisions, religious divisions and violence?

Nope, instead, he bragged about having a Muslim step-father..

“My stepfather … was raised a Muslim but he respected Hindus and he respected Buddhists and he respected Christians,” he said.  Meanwhile, Obama has mocked Christianity.

Could it be Obama is still spouting madness because he is still angry Hillary Clinton didn't win last November?

Obama added, “If you are strong in your own faith then you should not be worried about someone else’s faith.”

The line earned raucous applause from a crowd that follows a religion that has been committing throughout history genocide against Jews and Christians.

ABC News touched on Obama praising the Islamic spirit and Constitution of Indonesia (as they allow Christians and women to be persecuted and abused):

"The spirit of this country has to be one of tolerance. It’s enshrined in Indonesia’s constitution, it’s symbolized by mosques and temples and churches beside each other,” Obama said. “That spirit is one of the defining things about Indonesia. It is one of the most important characteristics to set as an example for other Muslim countries around the world."

So, here's the message.  While on foreign shores, and in a Muslim-majority country no less, during the American celebration of Independence Day, the former President of the United States ripped into the United States, while praising Indonesia’s Muslim Constitution.

Success is the greatest counter to this.  Once Trump gets the economy pumping (and it's already on an upward curve), and the free market is thrusting the economy to growth that the Obama administration never achieved, nobody is going to care about what Barack Hussein Obama has to say. . . except for maybe the staunchest Muslims and communists in this country.
