    That darn freedom of speech, expression, and the press. Boo freaking hoo, it's getting in Obama's way.

    When liberals start whining about too much democracy what they are whining about is, they can't lie to us without someone cutting in and blurting out the truth. Oh boo freaking hoo, why can't liberals have a closed society like Stalin had.

    This is why they are always admiring dictators like Castro. Dictators like Castro get to jail their detractors.

    See it here: Hot Air Obama: All this darned media is putting “pressure” on our democracy

    Oh boo freaking hoo, those darn Ipods, Xboxes and Ipads.

    Yeah, that pesky Freedom of Speech and the media 'run amok' that keeps informing the people, I guess it threatens those who desire to be authoritarian dictators.

    Well....he's showing his hand again.

    Everyone who defends this guy wants to ignore it but it's getting hard to defend this.

    Speaking at Hampton Univ. the president started making fun of technology and even said they are a distraction from what should be their real goal..he said emancipation should be their goal. He even said that the Ipod and other forms of media puts pressure on Democracy.



    I guess he's speaking of his form of Democracy..not the kind that you and I grew up with.

    You know...the freedom to voice your opinions and to share your views outside the MSM that he currently controls.


    Then he threw out the race card.

    Sounds like it came right out of a sermon from Rev. Wright. with shades of ACORN splashed all over it. [Look up Camp Obama]

    By the way...no report that I saw even mentions that Hampton is a historically Black University, so of course he mentions racial-prejudice continuing to fan the flames of hatred and bigotry in the minds of our youth.

    So black students, according to the president, shouldn't listen to music, [I can't believe he's serious] shouldn't pay attention to any media sources outside the ones he wants them to pay attention to, [I know he's serious] and should remember that they are still in a civil rights struggle...even thought those days are long gone.

    Well, the President is still living in the 60s and he wants our kids to live there with him. All of this inflammatory rhetoric sounds so harmless but I believe it inspires not only greatness in kids but a belief that they are superior to their contemporaries. Black kids eat this shit up with a spoon. He's reminding them of how things used to be but he forgets to tell them that things are better. Probably because he doesn't think it is.

    Perhaps he wants the pendulum to swing the other way and he wants to be the oppressor rather then the oppressed. Perhaps he feels that with an acceptable kind of education...the one that he feels is proper....and controlled....finally blacks will gain their freedom and justice.

    Somebody tell me, what, in his mind, is keeping these college kids from getting both?

    "What good fortune for those in power that people do not think". - Adolf Hitler

    "...information becomes a distraction, a diversion, a form of entertainment — rather than a tool of empowerment, rather than the means of emancipation. It is putting new pressures on our country and on our democracy." - Barack Obama

    He'll do the thinking for you, don't worry so much.

    This message board is proof enough that he's right.

    People come running with faked stories from WND, MM, etc. and come spread them as Gospel, and of course the more misinformed people are, the more strained the Democracy(Republic?) is. It's not rocket science.

    Funny how the smartest president of all time now calls information a "distraction". Could it be he actually believes the only information we should be allowed to access be government approved?

    Only because so many people, like his own Grandmother, keep saying he was born in Kenya

    The one who doesn't speak english? And you believe her over his American family because???

    Oh yea, I already know. You hate him so "of course! he's Kenyan. SEE! His Grammy said it!"

    Whatever passes for logic for you is fine by me, but it does prove his statement y'all are whining about. Your idiocy-spreading puts a strain on the Democracy, it's exactly as he said. Look at..........................yourself, for an example. Obama's Hitler, don't forget. You probably can't wait until he opens Concentration Camps and kills Millions to prove your point. You're a sick fuck, guy. Seek help.
