Skip to comments.Obama: 'If Catholics Have Their Schools and Buildings and Protestants Have Theirs ..
Posted on 06/19/2013 3:20:54 PM PDT by Nachum
Likening religious schools to segregation--a racist system that forced blacks to attend different schools and use different facilities than whites in the American South--President Barack Obama told a town hall meeting for youth in Belfast, Northern Ireland on Monday that there should not be Catholic and Protestant schools because such schools cause division. "Because issues like segregated schools and housing, lack of jobs and opportunity--symbols of history that are a source of pride for some and pain for others--these are not tangential to peace; theyre essential to it,"

You Irelandian peoples are racist!
He is so, so ignorant!
Which begs the question of why O considers Mosques so sacred?
Did he just forget to include the muslims by accident?
Wow...Is he trying to start a riot??
I can’t stand it.
But we should have many madrasas, right?
No doubt Georgetown will extend him an immediate invitation to be their next commencement speaker.
Whatever happened to diversity? It’s divisive now?
This guy should not be allowed outside the US for the rest of his term. I am so embarrassed by this and the German folly.
If liberals have their schools and conservatives have theirs...
If secular humanist hedonists have their schools and religious believers have theirs...
Now, now...cut the obongo some slack. He speaks from experience. He was educated in a madrassa and nobody hates Christians as much as he does. The scuzzlims taught him to hate, and to polish the nobs of other men.
Right. Worship the State.
in other words.. no one is to be allowed a decent education! everyone must be brought down to the lowest common denominator of his children and the ones like Trayvon that look like him.
Be rooted in Christ!
Isn’t the Sidwell Friends School a Quaker institution? Indeed, Malia and Sasha are segregated.
I’m sure our allies love being lectured by this tool.
Not just Ireland. He just said US Catholics who send their kids to Catholic schools are bigots. I guess I am too. I’m Protestant but some of my kids went to Catholic schools. They give a great education at about half the expenditure per pupil as the public schools.
And what about islamic schools, mister president?
You are right. 0bama is ignorant of the racial divide in Northern Ireland. The difference is more than Catholic versus Protestant. They have different languages, different sports, different customs. It goes back to the days of Cromwell. To 0bama those white people all look alike.
Our allies make jokes among themselves about O’Sambo’s African cannibal ancestors.
My rainbo’d done all run together and now i’se...sepia.
Breeding does tell. He was hired to handle the masses, by some seriously nasty NWO types. Problem— he’s not up to it w/out TOTUS and even with TOTUS because his mental upgrade did not come with it. An agitator, provocateur, and o how they love to be dissed. Easy to do with a sniper team in tow in a country w/out a 2nd Amendment or a Bill of Rights.
Anti-colonial indeed. A mau-mau.
B0 must have learned about this while attending schools in Indonesia. He certainly does not seem to know much about America.
He shows he knows nothing about history. Absolutely nothing. He is an idiot and only an idiot would think he’s intelligent.
Just typical Barky “Community Organizing...”
Trying to stir things up between the Protestants and Catholics in Ireland!
What a theory! This man’s intent on breaking down organized religion is becoming more obvious by the day. His intent is not to make things equal for all. His intent is to create a society where there are no rules, no structure, a place where anything goes. Anarchy is his goal.
That may be. But he doesn't write these speeches.
Then we can get rid of public schools that traumatize our kids.
He is an anti-dentite.
Only because it causes CHAOS. That is his goal. Achieve CHAOS. Then the Socialist Caliphate can takeover without a fight because we will be begging 'them' (they are the government right now) to FIX it. That stage is called NORMALCY, and it will be VERY DIFFERENT from the 'rules' in the CHAOS stage.
They get a 'waiver'.
Obama should take measures to end the kind of school discrimination he thinks he sees in the USA.
(Of course it is only visible to racist liberals)
He can start by taking his own children out of the elite and private "Sidwell Friends School" in Washington, D.C. and enrolling them in the low grade government schools that children of the common folk (who pay the bills) have to attend.
Mooslims will always get to have theirs, though.
CNS News has been around a while now. Even Rush Limbaugh quotes them
...everyone must be brought down to the lowest common denominator of his children....
Oh, no, his children attend a private school, which is actually affiliated with the Quakers, IIRC.
What an idiot.
Forced segregation is not the same as voluntary. In fact, most such schools here don’t actually require membership in that religion. Besides, ultimately religion is a choice, not born.
2nd, what is this “segregation is a source of pride” BS? Who thinks that?
BTW, what does he think of the United Negro College Fund?
And that’s the point. My son is likewise going to a Catholic school soon. I’m Lutheran. I can choose and they don’t keep me out.
Can someone please remind me WHY:
1. Catholics strongly supported Obama?
2. Jews strongly supported Obama?
Enquiring minds puzzle.
He’s sure no JFK!
He is abominably ignant ~ stupidest person to ever be president.
We will not send our child to public schools.
And I have seen the same reaction that Obama stated in the article. One person told me the State has a duty to educate the child according to its purposes, and that if I didn’t like the schools in my area I should save up and move.
She was a young, liberal, crazy cat lady.
My reaction to this article was that he does not see children as the responsibility of the parents, but rather tools of the State, and that parents should really have no say in how they choose to educate their children. They are part of the collective. While he sends his own daughters to an elite private school, did he not advocate the end of the school choice program in DC? If you pay attention to him, he shows who he really is. The scary thing is, like the person you mentioned, some think this is a good idea. A woman from my church who is from Germany talked about how the State gradually weened children from the influence of their parents. This is what he is doing here.
I still quote a very wise person: “We should have picked our own cotton”.
The democRATs should have picked their own cotton.
Now the blacks self-segregate.
Isn't that just another non-Christian whack-job cult?
