Obama Takes Swipe at the Media on MSNBC: Actively Trying to 'Divide and Splinter' Us
Mediaite ^ | 12/5/13 | Josh Feldman

Posted on 12/05/2013 5:42:03 PM PST by Nachum

As President Obama wrapped up his conversation with Chris Matthews at American University, he took a swipe at the partisan media for dividing the country and making compromise more difficult. Obama said being the Commander-in-Chief for so long “makes you humbler, as opposed to cockier,” and compared himself to Sisyphus, rolling the boulder up the hill for eternity with little success. He spoke of how enthusiastic young people encourage him and give him confidence, only for the media to take that enthusiasm and use it to divide people. “The American people are good and they are decent, and yes, sometimes

The greatest divider of people in the history of the American Presidency projects yet again. Amazing, but not surprising.

The fact that Soetoro showed up on the cable freak channel, MSNBC, demonstrates just how seriously the boy takes the “news”. He wants propaganda, not the truth.

So when Obama never fails to bash Bush and the right and says, "if they bring a knife to the fight, we'll bring a gun" and Reid calls the Tea Party "anarchists" and Biden calls them "terrorists" that is the media dividing?

Don't think so.

I really hated the divisiveness it created in this country when one of those awful media hosts on FOX said someone should sh#t in Hillarys mouth.

Oh........ my bad

COMMUNISM

IN THE U. S. A.

The first of a series on the Communist conspiracy and its influence in this country as a whole, on religion, on education, on labor and on our government

^^No Communist, no matter how many votes he should secure in a national election, could, even if he would, become President of the present government. When a Communist heads the govern- ment of the United States — and that day will come just as surely as the sun rises— the government will not he a capitalist government hut a Soviet government, and hehind this government will stand the Red army to enforce the dictatorship of the proletariat, ‘’

Sworn statement of WILLIAM Z. FOSTER

Head of the Communist Party in the United States

If you ever find yourself in open debate with a Communist the facts here given can be used to destroy his arguments completely and expose him as he is for all to see.

Every citizen owes himself and his family the truth about Com- munism because the world today is faced with a single choice: To go Communist or not to go Communist. Here are the facts.

1 . What is Com-munism? A system by which one small group seeks to rule the world.

2. Has any nation ever gone Communist in a free election?

No. 3. Then how do the Communists try to get control?

Legally or illegally, any way they can. Communism’s first big victory was through bloody revolution. Every one since has been by military conquest, or internal corruption, or the threat of these.

CONSPIRACY is the basic method of Communism in countries it is trying to capture.

IRON FORCE is the basic method of Communism in countries it has already captured.

1 2. What would happen to my insurance? The Communists would take it over.

34. Where are their headquarters in the United States, and who is in charge?

Headquarters are at 35 East Twelfth Street, New York City. Wil- liam Z. Foster, of 1040 Melton Avenue, New York City, has the title of “Chairman of the Communist Party of the United States,” but Foster is actually just a figurehead under control of foreign operatives unseen by and unknown to rank and file Communists.

55. What is the emblem of the Communist Party in the United States? The hammer and sickle.

36. What is the emblem of the Communist Party in the Soviet Union? The hammer and sickle.

57. What is the flag of the Communist Party in the United States? The red flag, the same as that of all Communist Parties of the world.

49. What kind of people become Communists?

The real center of power in Communism is within the professional classes.

Of course, a few poor people respond to the Communist claim that it is a “working class movement.”

But taken as a whole the Party depends for its strength on the sup- port it gets from teachers, preachers, actors, writers, union officials, doctors, lawyers, editors, businessmen, and even from millionaires.

Obama’s never at a loss for a way to get his “messages” out. Even though it’s nothing more than a stage for his propaganda campaign, the media accommodates him.

Media Actively Trying to 'Divide and Splinter' Us

Hussein, you slimy totalitarian: America has not and hopefully never will restrict free speech. No matter how much you and your Bolshevik bosses want to.

“The American people are good and they are decent, and yes, sometimes we get very divided, partly because our politics and our media specifically tries to divide them and splinter them.”

By "politics" I assume he's talking about himself. He's done more to divide Americans than politics and the media ever could have.

I remember hearing about presidential fireside chats where the president would speak and families would gather to listen to what the president had to say. When the president made a point to address the American public people knew there was something important that they likely needed to hear.

Now, however, you can’t get Obama to shut up! Ever since he’s been in office almost no day goes buy without him on TV yammering about something — nothing really — but always yammering and people generally don’t pay any attention to him. Just one more voice in the cacophony of Washington DC white noise.

Obama speaks of divisive media and does it the media network that advocated defacting on Sarah Palin because she had an opposing point of view!

FNC interviewed Jesse Jackson this evening concerning the death of Nelson Mandela(I guess because Jesse and Nelson both had a love of democracy?).

At any rate, Jesse referred to Nelson and MLK as being transformative leaders of their time. The tie to Obamalopolis has been made. By the time 2016 comes around, anyone voicing the opinion that Odumbo should leave office will be cause to label the owner of said opinion a racist in an attempt to marginalize that individual.

I think that an attempt will be made to extend the boy King’s time in office without an election. Jesse has warned us.

You're right... He chose Chris Matthews... that tells us what we need to know. Even a New York Times reporter would have asked more probing questions.

He is paranoid, psycotic, sociopathic and narcisistic all rolled into one basket case of insanity.
