Ever since Donald Trump beat Hillary Clinton in the presidential election last month, Barack Obama has been undermining him every chance he gets. Obama took things to a new low on Thursday, however, when he urged soldiers to question Trump’s authority when he takes office.
CNS News reported that Obama appeared at MacDill Air Force Base, in Tampa, Florida to talk about “the foundation that we will leave for the next administration.” Even though he knows next to nothing about the military, Obama presumed to describe their mission as a fight against “violent extremism.” Obama then demanded the soldiers rise up against Trump if they feel he is pushing policies that are ill considered.
According to Breitbart, Obama told the soldiers, “each of us has…the universal right to speak your minds and to protest against authority; to live in a society that’s open and free; that can criticize our president without retribution.”
The president added that a proper U.S. policy against “violent extremism” is a “long term” policy.
“So rather than offer false promises that we can eliminate terrorism by dropping more bombs or deploying more and more troops or fencing ourselves off from the rest of the world,” Obama said, “we have to take a long view of the terrorist threat. And we have to pursue a smart strategy that can be sustained. In the time remaining, let me just suggest what I think should guide this approach.”
In addition, Obama blamed terrorism on the Second Amendment and global warming. He claimed global warming plays a major role in the conflict in the Middle East, saying, “a changing climate is increasing competition for food and water.”
He also blamed the Second Amendment for “violent extremism” in the United States.
“Somebody who is trying to kill and willing to be killed is dangerous, particularly when we live in a country where it’s very easy for that person to buy a very powerful weapon,” Obama insisted.
He then placed some blame on the First Amendment, suggesting that he thinks free speech is too freely indulged to prevent “impressionable minds” from being warped by “extremism” on the Internet.
On top of all that, Obama also found time to defend Islam:
“We are fighting terrorists who claim to fight on behalf of Islam. But they do not speak for over a billion Muslims around the world, and they do not speak for American Muslims including many who wear the uniform of the United States of America’s military. If we stigmatize good patriotic Muslims, that just feeds the terrorists’ narrative. It fuels the same false grievances they they use to motivate people to kill. If we act like this is a war between the United States and Islam, we’re not gonna lose more Americans to terrorist attacks, but we’ll also lose the sight of the very principles we claim to defend.”
It’s sickening that Obama is effectively encouraging members of the U.S. military to revolt against the president. SHARE this story if you think Obama should SHUT UP and ACCEPT Trump as his president!
