BREAKING: On Human Rights, Obama Says Malaysia’s ‘Got Some Work To Do, JUST LIKE THE UNITED STATES’
CNN and RedState on The Right Scoop ^ | 4/27/14 | Caleb Howe

Posted on 04/27/2014 1:01:09 AM PDT by absentee

At a joint press conference in Malaysia today, Major Garrett asked President Obama about human rights concerns in Malaysia, saying the issues were “up for grabs” in the country. He asked the President why he hadn’t discussed human rights while in Malaysia, and why he hadn’t met with jailed opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim.

(video here)

President Obama said that not meeting with Mr. Anwar was “not indicative of a lack of concern,” and said that “there are a lot of people I don’t meet with.”

“I think the Prime Minister is the first to acknowledge that Malaysia’s still got some work to do, just like the United States, by the way, has some work to do on these issues. Human Rights Watch probably has a list of things they think we should be doing as a government,” said the President.

For the commie Left, there is no end to fixing the fantasy land on the Unicorn Farm, when Utopia is the ultimate end. They will be fixing the impossible and they know it. That guarantees they will always have a job to do; even if it means human rights abuse. That is a guarantee.

He has a point, but not the one he thinks he has-black “youths” are becoming a menace to whites anyplace, anytime. Even 90yo women asleep im their own beds in their own homes aren’t safe.

Whenever he has to say something critical of anyone, particularly about anything that might be related somehow to the ROP, he has to conclude with a dig at the USA.
His administration is a toilet bowl and he’s the biggest POS.

He’s right; the United States has serious and growing human rights problems.

In the past five years, FedGov has greatly restricted the free exercise of religion, going so far as to require devout Christians to pay for abortion. In the past five years, FedGov, state governments, and other government entities have expanded speech codes and “free speech zones”, greatly restricting another section of the First Amendment. In the past five years, FedGov and state governments have repeatedly attempted to restrict the right to keep and bear arms. In the past five years, FedGov has vastly expanded warrantless searches, particularly of electronic communications. This year, FedGov has gone as far as sending 200 armed thugs to collect delinquent grazing fees in order to enrich a Democrat leader and his family.

Yep, we have human rights problems too, and the communist responsible for creating most of those problems is fully qualified to talk about how bad things are getting in what used to be our country.

Must be how we treat the elderly - no, that can’t be it. Obama said instead of surgery they should take a pill.

Once again, words to describe my hate for this man fail me.

I hope all those idiots who saw the election of a foreign mulatto Muslim as some turning point in our history have had time to re-consider their thoughts on the matter.

And we pay out the nose for this anti-American bozo to go on these apology tours. Is there a more feckless nation than ours that has ever worn the mantle of “leader of the free world”? All those worthy leaders of our past history would be stunned and ashamed that we have sunk this low.

In deference to Obama, he has led a massive assault against American civil rights and fair treatment under the law.

The US now ranks 12th for economic freedom according to Heritage, and has fallen to 46th in press freedom, according to Reporters Without Borders.

He is in fact correct. Although most (but not all) of the fall that needs to be improved has taken place during his regime.

So, does the queer-in-charge think he is going to be taken for real, speaking to a Muslim nation?

Or, is he masking the words, so that the U.S., moves more towards a standard that Malaysia uses?

"Malaysia's still has got some work (human rights) to do, just like the United States."

Moral Equivalencies and False Analogies....two of the highly effective tools utilized throughout history by leftist, fascist, socialist and communist trained propagadists.

I took a valuable, detailed course in "propaganda and its practioners" years ago and, believe me, Obama is highly trained in the art...and he employs this deceitful skill all the time. To the untrained ear, he comes off as earnest and caring.

Never underestimate him.....he's very good at a number of evil arts.
