The owner of the New England Patriots football team thinks Donald Trump was divisive for his scornful words related to the NFL players “taking a knee’ during the playing of the National Anthem? I see that issue rather differently.
When President Trump stated that multi-millionaire football players were disrespecting our flag and the National Anthem by “taking a knee” he was simply expressing the attitude of most Americans. He was just responding to the disruption caused by the NFL players as they took up the leftist cause of America being rotten and insisting that the nation needs “fundamental” change, as was Obama‘s opinion. If you want to see what divisive looks like just consider the outrage and uproar that resulted from these acts of Barack Obama:
Barack Obama was divisive when he invited the Black Lives Matter group to the White House while they were celebrating the assassination of police officers nationally.
Barack Obama was divisive when he opened our borders to all who would illegally enter in contradiction to the laws passed by Congress.
Barack Obama was divisive when he defended the leftist sanctuary city bad idea and allowed not only illegals but criminal illegals to live in the United States with full immunity from the laws of our nation.
Barack Obama was divisive when he promised to “fundamentally transform America” as soon as he was elected to the Oval Office and then set about doing it.
Barack Obama was divisive when he ignored the obvious breaking of federal tax law by the IRS when they discriminated against Republicans prior to the 2012 election.
Barack Obama was divisive when he identified the Ferguson police force as being racist and nationalized it under his Department of Justice.
Barack Obama was divisive when he declared that Hillary Clinton had committed no crime as Secretary of State when she used her own personal email server to send and receive classified messages.
Barack Obama was divisive when he took up the banner of allowing men, who could at the drop of a hat self-identify as women, freely enter women’s restrooms across the nation.
Barack Obama was divisive when he stated that the American Constitution was a “negative” document instead of its being the revolutionary and liberating document that America’s founders put in place to protect average citizens from an intrusive government like the one Obama was putting in place.
Trump was just defending the interests and attitudes of his base, and no negative impact will stick to him for his bold, plain-spoken words. On the other hand, Barack Obama was certain that America was seriously flawed and needed large infusions of his radical medicine in order to get it thinking right again. Oddly enough, Obama’s opinion of America is the same opinion held by Adolf Hitler, Chairman Mao, and Joseph Stalin, just to put his ideas in proper perspective.
