And you wonder why racial tension are at an all time high. He is more interested in people who are flooding into the United States than the ones who's forefathers built America...

Aren't liberal values what leftist college professors teach? Isn't that what sjw are fighting for?

Unbelievable!


Obama calls on supporters to renew fight for liberal values in farewell address

In his farewell address to the nation Tuesday night, a tearful President Obama called on Americans to keep working toward income equality, racial healing and bipartisan cooperation — the same goals he was unable to achieve over the past eight years.

With 10 days remaining in his presidency, Mr. Obama traveled to Chicago to deliver his valedictory speech to about 20,000 supporters and urge them to renew the fight for liberal values in the administration of Republican Donald Trump.

“We must forge a new social compact,” Mr. Obama said. “If we don’t create opportunity for all people, the disaffection and division that has stalled our progress will only sharpen in years to come.”

The president warned of threats facing democracy, saying race “remains a potent and often divisive force in our society.”

“If every economic issue is framed as a struggle between a hardworking white middle class and undeserving minorities, then workers of all shades will be left fighting for scraps while the wealthy withdraw further into their private enclaves,” the president said. “If we decline to invest in the children of immigrants, just because they don’t look just because they don’t look like us, we diminish the prospects of our own children — because those brown kids will represent a larger share of America’s workforce.”

Here we have an example of the media right reporting on Obama and just like the media left is accused of "fake" news, the media right likes to spin a good yarn.

Example the quote above is
“We must forge a new social compact,” Mr. Obama said. “If we don’t create opportunity for all people, the disaffection and division that has stalled our progress will only sharpen in years to come.”


Did Obama say that, sort of, but in their reporting they shorten one sentence and added another sentence making it look like Obama made one sentence. What did Obama say
And so we're going to have to forge a new social compact to guarantee all our kids the education they need.


and (I included the whole paragraph for the last part of the quote)

We can argue about how to best achieve these goals. But we can't be complacent about the goals themselves. For if we don't create opportunity for all people, the disaffection and division that has stalled our progress will only sharpen in years to come.


Totally different meaning when sentences are complete and separated.

Suggest before using someone else's report on this speech or any speech one should read the whole speech.

:135: Oh no, every fiber of being says <stay out, stay out, stay out, stay out , stay out>

I managed to stay out of the Feminism is out of control debacle.
Managed to stay out of the abortion debacle.

But this one? This one I may not make it.
It must be nice to live in an Ivory Tower, where everyone else makes mistakes. I have no idea what an ivory tower looks like.

Hmm.... now is God a right or left winger, or just not into politics at all. So many questions
When you have to start compromising yourself and your morals for the people around you, it’s probably time to change the people around you.

Open borders/Nope. Sane borders.
Open drug use/Nope. I used to be very anti-Mj, but have come full circle on medical value though But not open.
Emptying prisons/Nope. Build more, in remote places. Capital Punishment needs to be re-instated.
Slap on the wrist for criminals/Many of my posts say that the judges need to get their limpwristed, pantywaist judgements thrown out.
Sanctuary cities/ :135: What the heck are these?
Taking Christianity out of the school system and replacing it satanism and Islam/This is sheer garbage.
Giving away free stuff/I do all the time. Donate/give/...oh wait...not the part where the house was broken into by a crackhead.
Free education (borrow money for it from the banksters)/Most would agree this isn't feasible, how about "affordable" and be done with it.
Free healthcare (borrow money for it from the banksters)/From what my clients tell me, claw backs are happening as we speak. What they are charged is "hidden" because they have no central place to discuss ever increasing costs to their healthcare needs. I believe most us agree the house should not be lost over healthcare costs, but costs have risen.
feminism at it's worse/Who decides what engenders "at it's worse"?
BLM supporters/Black Lives Matters started when one too many black people were shot and killed, why is this an issue that an organization has started over it?
Cop haters/garbage, sheer and pure.
Starbucks/Tim Hortons, Come on!

Add to the list....


Later.

Just a pet peeve but so often views and positions are talked in terms of ' liberal', 'left', 'conservative', or 'right' with those expressing a position on any one subject often thrown in one of those categories.

While those labels may be convenient in some contexts, hard fast definitions and stereotypical images of the ’left’ or ‘right are not always so clear cut in today’s complicated world (and certainly when it comes to political parties and voters as we have seen south of the border ).

To hastily box people in one camp or another has its downside. Different points of views can be too hastily dismissed, more thoughtful discussions squashed , and emerging trends missed that later catch us by surprise.

Liberal Values = Moral Relativism.
PLEASE use spellcheck. If that is too hard, consider installing the Grammarly (free!) app that will not only spellcheck for you (AND offer corrections!) but also make sure that your sentences are grammatically correct.

You're welcome.
