Bombs and threats against political figures

No, his given name was Barack. Barry was simply a nickname he went by when he was younger. We should not be swallowing wingnut conspiracy theories based on nothing better than the dropping of a nickname.

Thank you, I stand corrected. I'm claiming to be a victim of fake news. I'm so embarrassed. :blush:

Da faq?

 

What is with people going to extremes against political figures they don't like. It's like calling Trump a Nazi or something. I don't like the man, but I don't think he's a Nazi.

 

Barack has stated he's a Christian, goes to Christian churches... but noooo... To the tin foil people if it smells like a duck and quacks like a duck... its a fucking unicorn! It's like saying Michelle is a man. Da faq is wrong with people?

 

And Barack is certainly not Marxist. Not even close. Even Bernie's version of socialism is more like capital socialism.

According to Wikipedia  Obama's middle  name is  Arabic. Barack is African but it also has Arabic connections. I could not find anything that connected Obama with the Muslim Faith directly though.

You'll find many of our names have origins in different languages. Examples would be Jewish names but that doesn't make the person Jewish any more than having the name Matthew, Luke or Paul makes you a Christian. I'm not sure what connection you can draw between a persons name given at birth and any belief later on, unless they do a Sinead O Connor and convert and intentionally change their name that is clearly related to that conversion. Also Muhammad Ali springs to mind.

 

Interesting to note that genetically he is half 'white', but we refer to him as African American, or black or whatever when those labels don't reflect the genetic reality. We pick what 'race' a person belongs to based on one very small part of their overall being - skin colour. Aren't we humans funny?

 

And according to Wikipedia:

Religious views

Obama is a Protestant Christian whose religious views developed in his adult life.[82] He wrote in The Audacity of Hope that he "was not raised in a religious household". He described his mother, raised by non-religious parents, as being detached from religion, yet "in many ways the most spiritually awakened person that I have ever known." He described his father as a "confirmed atheist" by the time his parents met, and his stepfather as "a man who saw religion as not particularly useful." Obama explained how, through working with black churches as a community organizer while in his twenties, he came to understand "the power of the African-American religious tradition to spur social change."[83]

In January 2008, Obama told Christianity Today: "I am a Christian, and I am a devout Christian. I believe in the redemptive death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. I believe that faith gives me a path to be cleansed of sin and have eternal life."[84] On September 27, 2010, Obama released a statement commenting on his religious views saying, "I'm a Christian by choice. My family didn't – frankly, they weren't folks who went to church every week. And my mother was one of the most spiritual people I knew, but she didn't raise me in the church. So I came to my Christian faith later in life, and it was because the precepts of Jesus Christ spoke to me in terms of the kind of life that I would want to lead – being my brothers' and sisters' keeper, treating others as they would treat me."[85][86]

Quote

The economy of the United States has grown faster than the other original NATO members by a wider margin under President Obama than it has anytime since the end of World War II.[271] The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development credits the much faster growth in the United States to the stimulus plan of the US and the austerity measures in the European Union.

 

So his Marxist stuff seems to work.... we should adopt it whole hog! :D

I think it's what happens when you have an obsessive compulsive political disorder and listen to too much talk radio or watch too much one sided tv.
