Farewell to Decade of Media Drooling Over Obama

(Newsbusters) From the moment then-state senator Barack Obama showed up on the national stage to address the Democratic convention in 2004, the news media were in love. “Obama is a rock star,” NBC’s Andrea Mitchell exclaimed during MSNBC’s live convention coverage back on July 27, 2004. The next morning, ABC’s George Stephanopoulos echoed Mitchell’s enthusiasm: “He’s the Tiger Woods of the Democratic Party right now.”

When Obama ran for President four years later, news reporters led the cheers. “It’s almost hard to remain objective because it’s infectious, the energy, I think,” then-NBC reporter Lee Cowan confessed in an MSNBC.com video posted January 7, 2008. On CNN a few days later, Politico editor John Harris admitted: “A couple years ago, you would send a reporter out with Obama, and it was like they needed to go through detox when they came back — ‘Oh, he’s so impressive, he’s so charismatic,’ and we’re kind of like, ‘Down, boy.’”

As a candidate, the Associated Press celebrated Obama as “something special,” while as President-elect, the Washington Post drooled over his “chiseled pectorals,” on display during a vacation in Hawaii. As President, reporters touted his “prodigious talents,” his “amazing legislative agenda,” and his “huge achievements.” And as an individual, journalists fawned over Obama, calling him “one of our brightest presidents,” a “huge visionary,” “the perfect American,” “our national poet,” and “the most noble man who has ever lived in the White House.”

With the Democratic Party defeated, ObamaCare set for repeal, and incoming President Donald Trump poised to revoke a host of his executive orders, Obama’s actual legacy will likely fall far short of what his media fan club once imagined. But one aspect of his place in history seems secure: Barack Obama has been the lucky recipient of more biased, positive “news” media coverage than any other President in history….

    He really let us down, the middle class. He allowed our jobs to be shipped overseas. What good did he do? I like his brother in Kenya, he calls him out on his lies and calls a spade a spade. Obama is no patriot, he was a good little worker for the globalists agenda, lied very well, good actor, now he retires to his 9 bedroom mansion, sure tax paid for plus big fat pensions, his girls will acquire zero college debt. He will have healthcare for the rest of his life and it won’t be 800$/month crappy Obamacare. Wow, he sure is set. He will NEVER have to turn the heat down or eat soup. And then there are the rest of us who can only dream of a fraction of having any of that! But we are paying for all of his goodies.

    The Democratic party and Obama saved this country from the debacle of the depression we were in in 2008-2009 and we almost went belly-up. The Republicans are mostly a bunch of mean bullies who deserve a lousy leader like Trump, who has never held any elective office in his life. I will continue to speak out against this Trump-fool, and praise leaders like Obama when they come along(all too rarely unfortunately)!

    The Obama legacy

    Thank god, the Obamas are gone. I am referring to this time of despair as the regime of the “New liberal fascists of the 21st century.” Fascism is no longer a definition of a far right-wing nationalist party. The Obama’s are the most physically vicious, arrogant, racist, bigoted and corrupt people in almost 100 years. They almost destroyed America and are responsible for hundreds of thousands of deaths worldwide. This guy and the minions that still follow him are a disease to civilization and freedom.

    Almost everything in the world is more violent and less stable since this terrorist took office, along with his followers in the media and entertainment industry (whom I will now call his “protection squadron”, and “media propaganda guard” ). They worked feverously to hide their corruption and crime against the American people. (Yes yes, they are duplicitous at hiding their terrorist enablement against the world too, but I’m concerned about America). The democrats, led by their messiah Obama along with these groups (the protection squadron and the media propaganda guard units – ps/mpg) embarked on a legacy of fear, surveillance, riots, and terror within America.

    As the DNC and Obama spread their racism, bigotry, and hate, the ps/mpg set out enforcing the racial policies and divisions that led to violence, riots, fake news, increased murder rates, and a hatred for law enforcement. The ps/mpg used Gestapo tactics to detect potential enemies of the state, and the neutralization of any opposition through lies, threats, fear, shame, and personal destruction.

    My hope is that there is such a thing as karma, and they ALL reap the evil they have sown

    And one more thing:

    Let’s review some of the crimes to the “office” perpetrated by Obama and the DNC. Many of these are acknowledged unwritten rules the DNC.

    Complete obedience to the DNC ideology no matter how criminal and corrupt it becomes.

    Inducements and monetary gains to all participants in the New liberal fascist party of the 21st century.

    Stealing wealth from American workers to provide members and activists of the movement with wealth and incentives.

    The acceptance and memorializing of black criminals as a repudiation of white privilege in America.

    Commitment to radical ideology was emphasized throughout the recruitment, membership process, and indoctrination of the ps/mph were racial policies were prioritized of the national interest.

    Americans were taught that it was necessary to blame white privilege for all the ills of the black Americans, and that as a country, American people be deemed by that policy as inferior to the rest of the world, and it became legal for any citizen to destroy property, riot, and commit crimes in the name of Black Lives Matters.

    Caucasian members were expected to renounce their white race and replace it with hatred and divisive thoughts for white privilege.

    The “New liberal fascist party of the 21st century” includes the application of hatred, brutality and racism against Republicans as a solution to economic and political problems. This tactic became so successful, that the ps/mph “hesitates not for a single instant, but executes unquestioningly, regardless of the means as long as the participating ps/mph member achieves success…”

    As part of its race-centric functions, Obama oversaw the isolation and displacement of republicans from all discussion within his despotic rule, and were deemed inferior or enemies of the state.

    The “New liberal fascist party of the 21st century” implemented these isolation tactics by attempting to create victim groups and as much socio-political enslavement through the use of class warfare with a number racial, ethnic, and/or ideological groups including the mentally or physically handicapped, homosexuals, political dissidents, African Americans, Mexican Americans, unions, and otherwise susceptible to their message.

    The conclusion:
    These leftists support thugs, terrorists, tyrannical rioters and criminals who attempt to silence free speech, disagreement, and discussion. These leftists are the new Fascists, and they are worldwide terrorist, each using different techniques to eliminate or silence those they disagree with.
    As these leftist radicals continue to plan violence and rioting, they are flirting with a civil war. They have no idea what the revolution will look like when the American patriot finally has had enough, and decides to step up to the fight. They will take their place in history next to other totalitarian terrorist dictators and despots.
