Of Course: Obama Blames the Media for Stoking ISIS Fears

Posted by on Dec 21, 2015 at 7:47 am

Just a reminder: The media created this guy and has propped him up during his sever disastrous years in office. Every time he opens his mouth and says everything’s hunky-dory another, terrorists attack happens. So maybe we should blame his incompetence and cowardice in not taking the fight to these terrorist scumbags.

President Obama said in an interview broadcast early Monday that he understands why Americans are worried about the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS), adding that it is important “to keep things in perspective.”

“This is not an organization that can destroy the United States,” he told NPR. “This is not a huge industrial power that can pose great risks to us institutionally or in a systematic way. But they can hurt us, and they can hurt our people and our families.”

Obama blamed the media in part, for fears, saying that in the past month, “all you have been seeing, all you have been hearing about is these guys with masks or black flags who are potentially coming to get you.”

“The media is pursuing ratings, this is a legitimate news story. I think it’s up to the media how they want to cover this. There is no doubt the actions of ISIL are designed to amplify their power and the threat that they pose,” he added, using the administration’s preferred acronym for the terror group.

So we guess while he’s on his lavish Hawaiian vacation we’re still subject to him nonstop?  Meanwhile, the guy who told his brain-dead supporters to get in people’s faces now wants to be Mr. Conciliation.

On the recent college protests about race, meanwhile, Obama said students are free to disagree with speakers invited to campus, but should not try to “shut them up.”

Yeah, a little late for that.

    The Zero treats the media like Ike treated Tina.

    Except that Tina eventually had enough.

    Figures the only ones who hate this are the racists and bigots of the
    ignorant right. Still can’t take having a black man as President. Obama
    calls the racist racist and the racist get upset.

    rhetoric is like a dog whistle for racists, separatists and
    isolationists everywhere. They’ve been scared for a long time of not
    being the majority anymore and will fight tooth and nail against it
    happening. hey righties..doesn’t this just about prove Trump and the GOP
    is racist?
    i mean all the racists like cliven bundy..ted nugent.. the KKK are endorsing Republicans..

    The same people who are wailing about ISIS now are the same people who were petrified about the imminent Ebola epidemic. And look how that was resolved. Not by fear, but by rational, measured judgment.

    The media plays to your fear people. ISIS is not an existential threat to America. How many people have actually been killed from terrorist attacks on US soil since 9/11? Compare that to how many deaths caused by Americans shooting up schools and movie theaters and other acts of violence in inner city neighborhoods. Thousands. And how many deaths caused by heart disease and cancer? Millions. Look at those numbers and should you really be worried about ISIS?

    He’s certainly not a practicing Muslim.

    Has he made the econmy worse….No
    Has he made healthcare worse….NO
    Has he made climate change worse by ignoring it….NO
    Has he made race relations work because bigots like you can’t deal with the fact that a Black man is in the white house….NO

    Can Barack Obama be impeached for the damages he has done?
    Assuming there was damage, which you cannot seem to name, no.

    Why does Obama hate America?
    He does not.

    What did we as a country ever do to him?
    We, as a Country, did nothing special to him that we did not do to every other man of color.

    Why is Barack Obama an evil man?
    No, this is not really true. He is a man who makes mistakes but does more good for the Country than most men.

    Why Is Barack Obama destroying America?
    assuming since you have make no attempt to pick out anything he is
    personally responsible for that may be hurting the County, it would be
    from simple, human error.

    Is Barack Obama a Muslim?

    Why does Barack Obama hate America?

    Is Barack Obama an Traitor?

    Is Barack Obama a Communist?

    Why is Barack Obama a terrorist?
    America, even though we have the largest military might in history and
    send robots to kill individual people based on the political decisions
    made thousands of miles away, we do not call ourselves terrorists. He is
    the commander in chief and was legally elected to office in a
    democracy. Any terror he causes comes from the will of the people.

    “Overall, do you think the U.S. military response to ISIS has been too aggressive, not aggressive enough, or about right?”

    Too aggressive Not aggressive enough About right Unsure
