Old Obama Video Isn’t One Bad Thing, But It Certainly Is Another
Just because a splice-job of a 2014 Barack Obama speech mis-contextualizes his argument does not mean the speech itself was a message from heaven and the angels.
In fact, the entirety of the speech is much worse than the splice.
The clip, albeit an unfair one, provides one of the most perplexing and troubling statements perhaps ever made by a President of the United States. I post it at the very end of this article. It makes its rounds on the internet and all too often American patriots fall for the bait.
We have to be more careful.
Obama was actually attacking Russia that day (big surprise), but now that millions of Americans are waking up to the Russia Russia Russia hoax perpetuated on the American people, thanks to Donald Trump and his ability to take the hits, Americans now can see through the propagandistic lies of a man who did everything he could to bring this country to its knees.
That is why the whole speech is worse than the splice. It is proof of the massive deceptions those with nefarious intentions have perpetrated for far too long on the people they promised to serve.
It was classic projection that day, the same thing the Left does now. Everything they do, they blame on their opponent. Russia has been created as the bogeyman all these years largely to get Americans to side with Ukraine when the time came–and indiscriminately so.
As we all know, that worked all too well starting in February 2022 with the “I Stand With Ukraine” chicanery.
Everything RVIVR publisher Scott McKay argues in his forthcoming book Racism, Revenge and Ruin: It’s All Obama is worth consideration when it comes out in a month. A part of the book’s summary follows.
“How is it that overnight the America we grew up in has become all but unrecognizable? How did the greatest nation on earth turn into a snake pit of bitterness and acrimony? How did our government come to make war on the very liberties – of speech, thought, religion – it was created to defend: Why has our justice system become a blatant instrument of partisan injustice? Why are entire generations so ignorant of the ideals that made this country a beacon for all humankind they reflexively denounce America as a hellscape of indecency and oppression?
The answer: Barack Obama.”
Obama, the Narcissist, and Projection
Of course, the Mockingbird media has always run cover for its darling poster-boy. Needless to say for those who know, the insidious truths coming out about Ukraine in the last year-plus (its nefarious underbelly including not-so-secret-anymore biolabs, the billions of dollars we American tax payers are funneling to it, etc) are all damning truths that prove good and well that this Husseinian statement about Russia back in 2014 was actually spot on about the Deep State and the infiltrated American government.
Projection is the work of the narcissist. And the narcissistic spirit is alive and well in that speech.
Here is a piece from a Reuters fact-check on the issue, just so you the reader can see a little more context surrounding both it and the decade-long aftermath. Revivalists must be careful not to splice things out of context and thus become the media monster we are fighting against:
The full transcript of the speech, visible on C-SPAN here , shows that Obama said, “Leaders and dignitaries of the European Union, representatives of our NATO alliance, distinguished guests, we meet here at a moment of testing for Europe and the United States and for the international order that we have worked for generations to build.”
Later in his remarks, he contrasted “the belief that through conscience and free will, each of us has the right to live as we choose, the belief that power is derived from the consent of the governed and that laws and institutions should be established to protect that understanding” with what he described as “the alternative vision” propagated by countries like Russia. This alternative vision,” he said, “argues that ordinary men and women are too small-minded to govern their own affairs, that order and progress can only come when individuals surrender their rights to an all-powerful sovereign.”
That out of the way, here is a more substantive part of Obama’s speech, which–as we have come to know about Ukraine and the United States’ history over the last decade–is all a flat lie. It was simply a foreshadowing, eight years in advance, of the 2022 attempt (and still ongoing) to curry sympathy for a nation that is actually a dangerous proxy nation the infiltrated American government-NATO-the globalists use to push their war against national sovereignty, which of course Russia defends. Sure, the splice makes Obama look bad, but to me, the speech and what we know now make him look even worse:
To be honest, if we defined our interests narrowly, if we applied a cold-hearted calculus, we might decide to look the other way. Our economy is not deeply integrated with Ukraine’s. Our people and our homeland face no direct threat from the invasion of Crimea. Our own borders are not threatened by Russia’s annexation. But that kind of casual indifference would ignore the lessons that are written in the cemeteries of this continent. It would allow the old way of doing things to regain a foothold in this young century. And that message would be heard not just in Europe, but in Asia and the Americas, in Africa and the Middle East.
And the consequences that would arise from complacency are not abstractions. The impact that they have on the lives of real people — men and women just like us — have to enter into our imaginations. Just look at the young people of Ukraine who were determined to take back their future from a government rotted by corruption — the portraits of the fallen shot by snipers, the visitors who pay their respects at the Maidan. There was the university student, wrapped in the Ukrainian flag, expressing her hope that “every country should live by the law.” A postgraduate student, speaking of her fellow protestors, saying, “I want these people who are here to have dignity.” Imagine that you are the young woman who said, “there are some things that fear, police sticks and tear gas cannot destroy.”
We’ve never met these people, but we know them. Their voices echo calls for human dignity that rang out in European streets and squares for generations. Their voices echo those around the world who at this very moment fight for their dignity. These Ukrainians rejected a government that was stealing from the people instead of serving them, and are reaching for the same ideals that allow us to be here today.
May everyone named directly or referenced indirectly ask forgiveness and do penance for their sins against America and God. I fight this information war in the spirit of justice and love for the innocent, but I have been reminded of the need for mercy and prayers for our enemies. I am a sinner in need of redemption as well after all, for my sins are many. In the words of Jesus Christ himself, Lord forgive us all, for we know not what we do.
