Obama to UN: America Should 'Give Up Freedom.' Yes, Really...
President Obama must really hate Hillary Clinton for him to endorse Donald Trump like this. It was one thing to sell out Israel in his last speech to the UN (as we wrote about yesterday), but in the most YOLO moment of his presidency, Obama showed his true colors and sold out this country to globalism too...
Obama TODAY: "In order to realize the promise of the UN, the US must give up freedoms" Unbelievable. #TrumpACandy https://t.co/y8H9mLXTnR— General Halley 🚁🌹 (@General Halley 🚁🌹)1474406430.0
We have to put our money where our mouths are. And we can only realize the promise of this institution's founding to replace the ravages of war with cooperation, if powerful nations - like my own - accept constraints. Sometimes I'm criticized in my own country for professing a belief in international norms and multilateral institutions. But I am convinced in the long run giving up some freedom of action - not giving up our ablity to protect purselves or pursue our core interests - but binding ourselves to international rules over the long term enhances our security.
A lot to unpack in that blurb of barf. But first, my reaction to the entire notion:
Obama hates America. I'm not even going to put an "ALLEGEDLY" in there. What would be the point? In one paragraph, Obama illustrated he despises America as founded. America is founded upon the entire idea of freedom. So "giving up freedom of action" as a nation? Goes against America, sir. Our ability to "protect ourselves" and "pursue our core interests" depends on being able to act freely. Without running our decisions through Mommy and Daddy International. Dummy. Why would we want to bind ourselves to international rules? Have you seen the rest of the world? It sucks. That's why everyone wants to come here!
I feel myself about to hit the all caps key and rage. Someone stop me.
Do you want to know why Donald Trump happens? He happens when the President of the United States - not a blogger or some college professor - tells the United Nations that THIS COUNTRY of AMERICA should give up freedoms for the good of the world order.
I'm not a single issue voter, but if I was? That single issue would be, "As a President, do you think our country should give up any freedoms: circle YES or NO."
Then I'd have to pack my bags, so I could move into the White House.
And make no mistake, Obama is simply parroting the sentiments of leftists, who hate the United States as founded. Like Obama, leftists hate sovereignty, greatness, and American exceptionalism. Ceding our security and our freedoms to a world body of unelected n00bs? It's the leftist's dream. If you think Hillary doesn't have similar aspirations, slap yourself. With a hammer.
Just another speech to go with the collection of ridiculous Obama speeches.
