When dems fund and promote a populist uprising in muslim countries (arab spring) they think it is wonderful and democratic.

When a genuine grass-roots uprising of Americans defeat the establishment, the dem hypocrites say the sky is falling.

Nationalism is not loving your country- it's using your national identity as an excuse to attack other countries or people in your own country that you don't agree with.

Obama is absolutely correct and I will believe him over a bunch of fanatics who lie about everything he ever did or said.

How is that different than the Obama administration using drones for air strikes in Pakistan denounced by the UN?

I couldn't even get through the first responses.

The fact that so many think that what he is saying is false, is almost proof of the crude nature of this current growing mentality.

Read up on human history- see what this sort of tribal uprising has always given birth to in the past.
This is not "Obama's original view", for chrissakes.

What he says isn't even noteworthy to most of the educated world- it is citing an evidence that is beyond question. We know this is happening, all over the globe. We see it is dangerous- it is giving forth terrorism, wars, violence of all sorts. It always has.

It is the people themselves, trying to take a moment to think and care about humanity as a whole that is the only hope... but look at the first page of this thread- good luck with that. Much of humanity is devolving and there is no stopping it.

after 8 years of Obama a little nationalism will be a good thing for the U.S.
when did nationalism become a 4 letter word anyhow?


When it became an excuse to go against our founding principals of welcoming immigrants.

As far as national pride goes, pride is one of the seven deadly sins for a reason. It's not a virtue.

I love how you can clearly see Obama's 'sociopathy' but fail to see Donald's OBVIOUS sociopathic and narcissistic tendencies. It truly astounds me. If Obama is a sociopath, then Donald is the alpha of Sociopaths... and what makes it scary with Donald is that he has NO shame in it. Obama's narcissism seems to be tempered by something, a mild fear of something. Not full blown fear as sociopaths do not feel fear as strongly as we do. But his disregard is held in check by his messiah complex.


But donald? He had NO Boundaries.He was raised in a household that allowed him free reign. You think he is going to change that mentality after 70 years of living without boundaries? Because of some constitution? If you are a supporter of Donald and you think he will; You, are... out....... of... your.........mind.

Actually Trump is a Misogynistic Narcissist. Which is typical of an aggressive A type personality.

But I haven't seen anything that makes me believe that he has no value for human life if they don't agree with him.

Obama supports Asad gone dead or alive. That is the characteristic of a Sociopath. His God complex justifies anything he does in his mind. To him it is ok to kill Asad not because Asad wants to hurt Obama but because they have a different opinion on how the world should be ran.

Who is Trump trying to kill?

Trump is talking peace, while Obama would prefer a no fly zone that would start WW3.

And he only sees it now? it has been on the rise since 2010, but roughly began in 2008 after the economic crisis. The refugee crisis just intensified it.

No, that's jingoism.

So you are both wrong
