Fox Nation Readers React To Death Of Nelson Mandela With Racism, Death Wishes For Obama

Some might ask why bother to publish this stuff.  To that, I reply, why not?  Why protect the SOBs by not publicizing their inanity?

Newshounds

Fox Nation posted a respectful article about Nelson Mandela’s death – and many of their readers responded in kind. But many erupted in such shocking racism and/or death-wishing hatred for President Obama that words fail us. You really need to see them for yourself. (H/T Andrew S.) UPDATED

This is what passes for “tolerance” and “civil discourse” on Fox Nation:

Obama Speaks On Health Care Law Rollout Problems

President Barack Obama is acknowledging his health care law’s rollout “hasn’t worked as smoothly as it’s supposed to work.”

Obama is encouraging Americans who want to sign up for insurance under new government exchanges to keep trying. He spoke from the White House’s Rose Garden.

The remarks came at Obama’s first health care event since widespread problems with sign-ups online became apparent.

He blamed problems in part to an overwhelming response. He says the program doesn’t depend on website and there are other ways to sign up.

 

OBAMA DECLARES NATIONAL DAY OF GLOATING – (Satire)

The New Yorker -The Borowitz Report

Residents of the District of Columbia were roused from their sleep by a massive fireworks display over the White House just after midnight, as President Obama declared what he called “a national day of gloating.”

“It would not be productive for this nation, going forward, to crow about our victory over political adversaries,” he said in a nationally televised address. “So let’s get it all out of our systems today.”

Immediately after the President’s speech, loudspeakers outside the White House blasted “We Are the Champions,” and the national day of gloating began.

In addition to a ticker-tape parade, the day’s events will include a screening on the Mall of a clip reel of Texas Senator Ted Cruz’s marathon Senate speech, punctuated by sad trombone sounds.

“Starting tomorrow, my message to the Republicans is, ‘Let’s work together for the American people,’ ” said Obama, wearing what appeared to be a beer hat. “But today my message is, ‘We won, bitchaz.’ ”

Inarguably, Hopelessly Black

Sadly, point well taken.

Every time I hear someone claim that their deep hatred for Barack Obama has nothing to do with his skin color, I have to smile – something I’m prone to do when confronted with a blatant lie. Naturally, there would be all kinds of nastiness and dirty politics by Republicans and conservatives no matter what color of skin a Democratic president had – that’s the way the game is played. But the fact that this president is black adds a level of viciousness to it all previously unseen in American politics.

Obama: We won’t “be terrorized” — addressing for the first time a potential terrorist plot, he advises “caution” in travel

President Barack Obama talks with host Jay Leno during a taping of “The Tonight Show.”

NBC News – First Read

President Barack Obama urged Americans to continue to “live our lives” on Tuesday amid a suspected al Qaeda threat that has closed more than a dozen U.S. embassies.

In his first public comments about the potential plot, Obama told “The Tonight Show” host Jay Leno that the threat was significant.

However, the president pointed out that the odds of dying in a terrorist attack were less than dying in a car accident.

“Terrorists depend on the idea that we’re going to be terrorized,” Obama added. “We’re going to live our lives.”

Asked if the message was for Americans to delay travel plans, Obama said no, but Americans should exercise “some common sense and some caution.” He encouraged people to check with the State Department or embassies before trips to any potentially dangerous areas.

Obama praised American resilience after tragedies like the Boston Marathon bombing, saying it is important not to let terrorists “shut us down” over fears of violence.

He added: “It’s a reminder that for all the progress we’ve made, getting [Osama] bin Laden, putting al Qaeda in between Afghanistan and Pakistan back on its heels, that this radical, you know, violent extremism is still out there, and we’ve got to stay on top of it.”

Obama’s sixth appearance on the NBC show came days after the State Department shuttered more than a dozen U.S. embassies and consulates across the Middle East and North Africa for the remainder of the week. That action sprung from intercepted messages between top al Qaeda leaders who appeared to be plotting a major attack in or around Yemen.Almost 100 U.S. personnel were evacuated from the country early Tuesday.

Addressing concerns about an NSA information collection program that stores phone record metadata in the effort to prevent terrorist attacks, Obama acknowledged that some are skeptical of the program’s impact on privacy but defended some government surveillance as a “critical component to counterterrorism.”

“We don’t have a domestic spying program,” Obama said. “What we do have are some mechanisms that can track a phone number or an email address that is connected to a terrorist attack,” he said. “That information is useful.”

The president also addressed the ongoing diplomatic fracas with Russia, which offered temporary asylum to alleged NSA leaker Edward Snowden and has cracked down with policies targeting gays and lesbians as the 2014 Sochi Olympics approach.

He confirmed that he will attend the G-20 summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin but warned that his forward-looking message will be clear.

“There are times when they slip back into Cold War thinking and Cold War mentality,” he said of the Russian government. “What I continually say to them and  to President Putin, that’s the past.”

Domestic issues also came up – including Obama’s emotional impromptu speech in the wake of the verdict in the Trayvon Martin case.

He described his remarks then as an effort to aspire to “fairness” in the justice system while acknowledging the realities that face young African American men.

“What we also believe in is that people – everybody – should be treated fairly and the system should work for everyone,” he said to applause.

Not all of the conversation revolved around the most weighty issues faced by the commander-in-chief: Obama joked about his love of broccoli and his recent birthday, and he quipped that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had “that post-administration glow” when they lunched privately last month.

Asked if his onetime presidential rival was “measuring the drapes” during the visit, Obama reminded Leno that Clinton knows her way around the White House from her tenure as first lady.

“Keep in mind she’s been there,” he said. “She doesn’t have to measure them.”
