    Do you think Obama is really encouraging people to riot?

    There is talk he is encouraging the riots.  If he is this is terrible and unacceptable of a president.  He is supposed to be uniting the country not splitting it apart.

    Old Poolmanposted 17 months ago

    Yes, I believe he is.  He is still our President and some well chosen words from him could go far toward making this a peaceful transition.

    His silence on this issue speaks volumes regarding his personal feelings about the protests.  It seems he thinks this will be a great chapter in his Legacy and wants it to continue for a long time to come.

    If he doesn't want to lead this country until inauguration day he should just go play golf and let Trump take over.

    Well if he doesn't want riots why isn't he and Hillary out there telling them to stop?

    I'll tell you why, because they are both hypocrites to the bone.for example he is now over seas warning against “Ethnic Identity” Politics! He practically is the inventor of it.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PE4z4ltRrfw

    And Hillary who in her concession speech said

    "Donald Trump is going to be our president. We owe him an open mind and the chance to lead. Our constitutional democracy enshrines the peaceful transfer of power."

    "I count my blessings every single day that I am an American, and I still believe, as deeply as I ever have, that if we stand together and work together with respect for our differences, strengthen our convictions, and love for this nation, our best days are still ahead of us.

    Because, you know, I believe we are stronger together and we will go forward together. "

    Where is she and Obama now that their party operatives are paying people to riot, people who don't even vote, and encouraging teenagers who can't even vote to reject the results of our legitimate and constitutional election?

    Hypocrites all....or could it be Hillary is just too ill to comment?

    Obummer isn't saying anything to quell the rioting, and he surely could.  But wow, he's jumped in before when there was a situation involving a conflict between a white and a black man, or between a police officer and a black man; he should have let local law enforcement handle the situation.  So at the least, in this case, Obummer is an accomplice by failure to speak.

    The little snowflakes, being the obedient little puppets they are (and paid by the demoncraps) certainly are being encouraged by obmama and hillary killary.
    Watch hillary killary start siphoning off money from the money laundering Clinton Foundation to start a new movement with the color purple as it's choice. "Against" the supposed hate of the quiet and peaceful voters who put Trump in office.
    The left certainly hasn't shown any "love trumps hate" since Americans elected Trump.
    The demonstrators are a spiteful, hateful and bigoted group of people. It wouldn't surprise me if they started burning books at their next demonstration. Got to wipe out everything that shows their ideology to be wrong.
    As bad as McCarthyism in the 50's.
    Lest we forget obamama and hillary killary have most of the media behind them, spewing out the ideology over the airwaves. Google and twitter censoring those that oppose the lefts agenda.
    I'm sure many dictators are joyously singing their praises to the demagogues in America that go be names obama and hillary killary.

    Obama has done more 'uniting' than should have been expected under the circumstances; while Trump continues to do nothing but shoot his mouth off in offensive ways. Unless he can manage to get a handle on that one big/little thing, don't expect him to last long.

    Republicans have been trying to convince citizens for years that government is bad bcuz of Dems (liberals, leftists, elitists); WHILE forgetting that THEY are the power-hungry, rich white men we were intentionally-replacing with Obama.

    For 8 years, GOP refused to work across partisan divides as people got angrier; WHILE blaming Obama and the majority of We the People who voted for him – both in the electorial college & popular vote. GOP have CLEARLY demonstrated that THEY don’t have to respect the vote of the PEOPLE nor our President – so WHY should we now?!

    Nasty women were calling Trump and his supporters racist & misogynistic LONG before the election for obvious hate-rhetoric reasons. Protests are here to stay until Trump has something ELSE to say to us beyond the SAME hate speech he used to get into that office.

    MORE than that, many men have had misogynistic attitudes toward Hillary for DECADES: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DrcQeFl76cg Even though, most women were able to separate her from Bill’s scandals; and could see that the ones she DID seem to participate in weren’t NEARLY as ugly or incriminating as any other male politician before her. Really. HOW is her email scandal or any other one so much WORSE than any other male political candidate’s INCLUDING Trump’s?!!

    Hillary has had to fight in a male-dominated culture WHILE 'being a lady' – and obviously failed miserably up against Trump, a ‘good ‘ol locker room pal’ with a hot-headed, cocaine-mentality with practically NO experience in politics aside from knocking elbows with the rich & famous. Plus, he obviously knows how to use his big businesses to both rip people off & evade heavy taxes.

    Misogyny is also why many Bernie voters were against her. Go ahead, DENY it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DEoWSaM61NI ‘Nough said.

    Our divisions are profitable as any war; and are very possibly perpetuated intentionally. It is always the SAME government - just varying shades of who cares about people who live here. The chasm that exists between us is a lot simpler than most people realize. Christians & ex-Christians have proven God exists by debunking salvation. Look it up.

    Of course Obama is encouraging people to riot. By not doing anything to stop the rioting, he's encouraging it. By not saying anything, he's quietly sending the message that it's okay. As President, he's been responsible for all kinds of things he hasn't explicitly opposed. It's his way of giving tacit approval. It's all outlined on the Daily Stormer (www.dailystormer.com).

    Mr. Obama has stated “the majority” has responded.

    It appears that until there is a time with hard evidence in hand and no speculation or theories. His hands are tied.

    The President campaign his heart out for the democratic nominee, made these statements,

    “If you can bait someone with a tweet, do you want them to have the launch codes”.
