    First Clinton saying Europe should get rid of immigrants to appease far right nationalists
    Now Obama saying we should be more open to discussion with the right. Obama’s so out of touch :snoop:

    Obama says Fox News viewers, New York Times readers live in 'entirely different' realities - CNNPolitics

    Literally saying the same shyt alt-right Nazis say about how they should be allowed to debate their opinions.
    “If you're somebody who only reads the editorial page of The New York Times, try glancing at the page of The Wall Street Journal once in a while. If you're a fan of Glenn Beck or Rush Limbaugh, try reading a few columns on The Huffington Post website. It may make your blood boil, your mind may not be changed. But the practice of listening to opposing views is essential for effective citizenship. It is essential for our democracy,”

    Giving the opps free publicity. :snoop:

    The democrats are really pushing that “we need to be moderate and talk to people from both sides” bullshyt.

    Literally exactly what the Nazis want, they’re trying to shift the Overton window to the far-right by opening up “dialogues” and making their fascist politics part of the mainstream, now Obama is endorsing that by suggesting democrats should be more open to communication with the fascist right wing “because that’s how democracy works.” First off, we don’t live in a democracy, or else Clinton would be president. Secondly, democracy doesn’t work by allowing anti-democratic fascists to have a voice, all it does is hurt democracy.

    Not to mention how out of touch he is with his comparisons, “NYT and Fox readers live in different realities.” As if he’s unaware that for the last three years, the NYT has done nothing but attempt to normalize alt-right Nazis and hire apologists to their editing staff.

    Dems got a disorder, they so much want to reach consensus with a$$holes. Obama you would think would know better after how he was treated during his presidency.
    I'm currently reading a book which really sheds light on why guys like Obama and Bill Clinton fall into the 'professionalism' trap. I'll make a thread about the book when I finish it.

    @Call Me James @Rhakim @hashmander

    Aight, y'all go have some political discussions with republicans and tell me if anything beneficial comes out of it.
    Nothing in his comments implied he was saying "read right-wing literature so you can be one step ahead of the opponents", everything pointed toward "read right-wing literature so maybe you can find some common ground."

    Let Milo Yiannopolis debate at Berkeley while we're at it

    That's how democracies work, right? :troll:

    Have to hear both sides out and then come to a moderate proposal that makes everyone happy, right? :troll:

    Gotta let those opposing views be heard, don't want a tyranny of the majority or anything...

    Saying the average person should be more open to far-right perspectives is literally shifting the overton window. I've been debating right-wing nutjobs who say the exact same shyt Obama said for at least five years now, as they try to get more people to listen to their views under the guise of "this is a democracy, you gotta hear the opposing side even if it makes you mad."

    Why not say they should read far-left socialist newspapers from western europe? No? They should read more right wing journals from American neo-cons? Meanwhile other mainstream corporate "democrats" insist the party shouldn't drift too far to the left, "remain moderate", and then Hillary said last week Europe should kick immigrants out to appease far-right nationalists.

    That's where the american neoliberal "left" is at these days: suggesting people read more right-wing literature, curtailing socialist policies in the name of "moderation", and implying maybe we've done enough for refugees that our imperialist crusades created.

    There's a coordinated shift to the right. Democrats are just playing their part. I wouldn't be surprised if Obama's extreme left wing antics weren't meant to cause this alt right overreaction.

    Obama’s extreme left wing antics:why:
    Like what? Obama was basically a moderate republican. The only thing extreme about Obama was that he was Black, with a Black wife, and had Black children. That was enough for the right to hate him.
