Barack Bamboozles Berlin
American Thinker ^ | June 21, 2013 | Jeannie DeAngelis

Posted on 06/21/2013 8:25:07 AM PDT by jazusamo

Barack Obama showed up again in Berlin. Sadly, 194,000 of the fawning devotees that cheered him like a rock star in 2008 chose to skip the 2013 encore.

Nonetheless, directly out of the Brandenburg gate, the president commenced with injecting race and gender into the conversationwhen he said "Angela and I don't exactly look like previous German and American leaders." Obama then informed the audience, consigned by invitation to stand in the blistering heat listening to his blather, that Michelle, Malia, and Sasha, rather than endure his grueling speech, chose instead to experience the "beauty and the history of Berlin" (at American taxpayers' expense).

But probably the most amazing aspect of Obama's Berlin speech was his typical lack of self-awareness when making assertions that conflict with everything he does. For instance, although President Obama is actively persecuting the "unoriginated birthright of man," he quoted German philosopher Immanuel Kant, who said "freedom is the 'unoriginated birthright of man, and it belongs to him by force of his humanity.'"

Obama even posed questions Americans ask about him:

Will we live free or in chains? Under governments that uphold our universal rights, or regimes that suppress them? In open societies that respect the sanctity of the individual and our free will, or in closed societies that suffocate the soul?

In Berlin, Obama attempted to one-up Ronald Reagan's "Peace through Strength" strategy by stealing John F. Kennedy's "Peace with Justice" mantra and scheduled the revision to take place at Brandenburg Gate, where his social justice spiel paled in comparison to authentic Reagan strength.

The sun got in his eyes, so he didn’t deliver his speech as well as he normally does. At least that’s Chris Mathews’ excuse for Obama.

As I recall, according to the FReeper Lexicon “maroon” and “moran” are approved alternate spellings of “moron”, although they have not reached the status of beeber, stune, and cheese. /smile

his comment right there shows why he has such an arrogant social justice mind and attitude.

To him and the corrupt Holder they begrudge the founding fathers because they were white, they hate how the country was founded by whites and Christianity.

In essence they think that whites should be put at the back and be made to pay for him, and his family because in his view they deserve it after all the history has gone by.

Course forgetting how blacks sold blacks, killed black by blacks, black slave owners had black slaves etc.
