#BringBackOurBalls
Steyn Online ^ | 5/11/14 | Merk Steyn

Posted on 05/11/2014 10:56:24 PM PDT by Impala64ssa

t is hard not to have total contempt for a political culture that thinks the picture at right is a useful contribution to rescuing 276 schoolgirls kidnapped by jihadist savages in Nigeria. Yet some pajama boy at the White House evidently felt getting the First Lady to pose with this week's Hashtag of Western Impotence would reflect well upon the Administration. The horrible thing is they may be right: Michelle showed she cared - on social media! - and that's all that matters, isn't it?

Just as the last floppo hashtag, #WeStandWithUkraine, didn't actually involve standing with Ukraine, so #BringBackOurGirls doesn't require bringing back our girls. There are only a half-dozen special forces around the planet capable of doing that without getting most or all of the hostages killed: the British, the French, the Americans, Israelis, Germans, Aussies, maybe a couple of others. So, unless something of that nature is being lined up, those schoolgirls are headed into slavery, and the wretched pleading passivity of Mrs Obama's hashtag is just a form of moral preening.

But then what isn't? The blogger Daniel Payne wrote this week that "modern liberalism, at its core, is an ideology of talking, not doing". He was musing on a press release for some or other "Day of Action" that is, as usual, a day of inaction:

Diverse grassroots groups are organizing and participating in events such as walks, rallies and concerts and calling on government to reduce climate pollution, transition off fossil fuels and commit to a clean energy future.

It's that easy! You go to a concert and someone "calls on government" to do something, and the world gets fixed.

Until recently, Nigeria was associated with those silly cash advance scams. Now they've been invaded by muzzies doing what they do best. And this is the best this balless administration can come up with:

it is so stupid for the First Moose to be playing the hashtag board game. No class. Could we exchange The Moose for the girls?

Just curious. Are those girls American citizens? I’m just wondering why they are considered “OUR” girls. If they aren’t, then, wouldn’t we be kidnapping kidnapped girls?

Shouldn’t the hashtag be “return the girls to their parents”?

It’s the Duck Face that is so hilarious. When I first saw that picture, I honestly thought it was photoshopped. Because who would do that in seriousness? The Obamas would, apparently.

How many photo shoots did it take to get the perfect “frown?”

Furthermore, they aren’t “our girls” they are Nigeria’s girls.

“There’s no point winning an Oxford debate if the other side win everything else.”

That’s what we’re doing. Trying to show how hypocritical the left is, while they continue to actually do things to strip us of freedom. “What does it matter if we’re hypocrites? We own your future.”

BRING BACK OUR COUNTRY

Ain't going to happen until Americans realize this is not incompetence, it's not America's first black moron playing POTUS, it is much more serious than that.

Decades ago, the US government openly lied to Americans to hide the dirty truth. But what they really found out from that dark tragedy in history is that it is easy to lie, cheat and steal. It is only necessary to fool the press, who cares what ordinary Americans think? It is because the public will be beaten into shape and will accept the lies if the presstitutes repeat them often enough. Of course Hussein is a Muslim, of course he gave US weapons to Muslim terrorists who killed Americans in Benghazi. Of course Hussein-O-care is an open attack on Americans that is meant to cause economic and social havoc. Of course Hussein's EPA is shutting down power plants under the cover of global warming when actually it is meant to seriously hurt America economically.

FOOLING AMERICANS IS EASY, YOU ONLY HAVE TO FOOL THE PRESS

Ann Coulter doesn't have a clue, do YOU?

“...They’s OUR people... Just ask Holder... “

If that’s the case, then it’s “his” people that kidnapped them in the first place.

From a visual point of view, the older girl has the ugly mouth/over-bite of her mother, and perhaps from the nose up she looks somewhat like obozo. The younger girl doesn't look like either of them, though I haven't seen any photos of either kid recently. Haven't really seen any photos of relatives of either obozo or the mooch, so I can't say if these kids remotely resemble any of these relatives.

If obozo was really driven with a blinding desire to be the first black socialist/communist/marxist pResident, he would have thrown a bag over the mooch’s head, and done “the deed.” And then he would have run back to Reggie's arms...a “cleansing” of sorts for this homosexual.

Don't care if you're homosexual, or whatever your sexual orientation, which is determined at conception. I DO care that this POS lying commie/socialist/marxist/muzzie supporter is in control of our govt., and is working toward the destruction of all that this country was founded on.

The lives of these two and their “children”, prop kids as I like to refer to them, is built upon nothing but lies. Despicable people, and they and their ilk must be removed from OUR White House one way or the other.

The Obama Administration and Hillary Clinton’s State Department have sent special forces to Uganda, Congo and elsewhere to pursue every rebel group that is NOT muslim.

If socialism or muslim tyranny is at risk, special force are sent. If Christians are at real risk, they’ll muster tweet.

Bring Back Our Balls is a slogan trying to make Big Band music popular again. Or maybe it’s the name of a rock band.
