I don’t hate Barack Obama, I was never one of those people who would scapegoat him. I was closer to one of his supporters who had a few disagreements with him. This post is not to judge him.
But this is a serious time, and someone has to speak the truth. It is not one I delight in speaking, but I speak it because I believe it to be true.
Barack Obama seems to me more like a modern day Neville Chamberlain.
What was Obama doing when he knew Russia was attacking our democracy? He remained quiet. What was he doing when Trump threatened our democracy? He was careful with his words. What did he do when Putin was bombing children’s hospitals in Syria?
He backed down. No public warning for Putin. No threatening him with our vastly superior cyber capabilities, nothing.
As America was threatened by a madman running for President, Barack Obama refused to call him a madman. He refused to say explicitly how dangerous Trump was.
What do you say after a great tragedy like Trump’s election occurs and someone who could have stopped it, didn’t.
You know what I say? He looks more like Neville Chamberlain to me.
Serious times call for serious action and strong speech.
Doesn’t his actions look like cowardice in the face of one of the most important moments in world history?
Or is it Barack Obama’s own idol?
Or it a faith in reason that failed us?
“It is that spirit, born of the Enlightenment, that made us an economic powerhouse… it’s that spirit — a faith in reason, and enterprise, and the primacy of right over might…”
– Barack Obama (source)
I disagree that is true.
It is that spirit that failed to stop Putin.
Is it that spirit that failed to stop Trump.
