The mainstream narrative on Trump’s immigration ban is intentionally avoiding the core issue.
Former President Barack Obama criticized President Donald Trump’s executive order curbing immigration in a statement Monday, backing protesters who have taken to the nation’s airports to express their displeasure with Trump’s action last Friday.
CNN reported that former President Obama fundamentally disagrees with the notion of discriminating against individuals because of their faith or religion,” said Kevin Lewis, spokesman for the former president, in a statement.
This is the first time Obama, who ceded power to Trump less than 2 weeks ago, has weighed in on a policy matter since leaving office and it breaks with an unwritten rule that former presidents refrain from criticizing the current White House occupant. But there’s more. Obama was the first one to implement legislation that went into law last year that scrutinizes anyone who is from or has traveled to the countries since 2011 that the U.S. has bombed in the Middle East and Northern Africa. Now is that the pan calling the kettle black or what?
This recent outrage on President Trump’s ban on Muslims entering America really proves that folks in America and the West are lost and totally disconnected with reality when the same people protesting kept silent about these phony political wars for profit that cause mass murder on innocent Muslims but go into a rage about Trump temporarily banning Muslims from the same countries whose people we have been bombing and killing since 15 years ago.
That catch 22 is not what I call being morally consistent and taking personal responsibility for your actions or reactions. If we didn’t have these fake Middle Eastern wars and government overthrows in the Middle East and elsewhere that Bush and Obama supported, we would not have to worry about all this new hate, immigration and these fear based perceived retaliations to begin with.
I among so many are sick of these wars, all the death and destruction, the hate they breed and the chaos caused in Europe where I live from this mad immigration causing havoc over here. I didn’t vote for Trump but he is on the right track about vetting all immigrants because he sees the light at the end of the tunnel. Now he needs to get to the root of the problem and get America out of these fake wars for profit! Then Europe might follow suit. We shall see.
