President Obama’s “let’s see who I can piss off” tour through Cuba and Latin America continues. It’s provided us with gems, little glimmers into Obama’s studious, intrepid mind. Yesterday, these little insights showed us Obama’s thought process on Israel and Palestine. He concluded the real crux of the issue was Israel having too much money. Today? There’s not a lot of difference between capitalism and communism…
He said in the past there was a sharp division between communists, socialists and capitalists but that is merely an intellectual argument and it’s not so today.
“So often in the past there has been a division between left and right, between capitalists and communists or socialists, and especially in the Americas, that’s been a big debate,” Obama said at the Buenos Aires town hall.
“Those are interesting intellectual arguments, but I think for your generation, you should be practical and just choose from what works. You don’t have to worry about whether it really fits into socialist theory or capitalist theory. You should just decide what works.”
The worst thing? The video was officially released from the White House. Reminder, the United States is a republic, not a democracy. We’re not communists either, despite how badly Obama and his comrades like Bernie Sanders would like us to be. We’re also a capitalistic economy. Is it perfect? No. In fact it’s far from it, thanks to too many regulations from the government. Also, “crony capitalism” which isn’t capitalism at all. It’s socialism.
Look, I could spend hours schooling Obama in the ways he’s wrong. Fact is I don’t have the time today. Or ever. It would be a full time gig. Maybe one of you layabouts without employment should pick that as a career. Obama’s BS-Ometer.
But the macro issue of this is clear. Obama wants to blur the lines between capitalism and communism. This is a dog-whistle like signal to his supporter who want to eliminate the stigma that communism is bad. You know, because it’s hell on earth. They have a long haul ahead of them to eliminate that little truth.
Another macro issue? The president of our representative republic of the United States of America, told people, young people, they should go with whatever system “works” for them, while glossing over what’s morally right, wrong and what actually works for people. He’s the same guy who thinks opposing gay marriage and abortion is hateful.
Is it November yet? I want this guy in my rearview mirror… Speaking of Obama, here’s another time he was so wrong I had to rebut him.
