The word “hate” may only be four letters, but it’s not so simple as the former president would have us to believe.
Righteous hate and anger are healthy. Does anyone doubt that Jesus hated the moneychangers when he went after them in the temple. Everyone knows that story and approves. If Jesus did that today, the press would “crucify” him, so the Jews wouldn’t have to.
Hate can also be easily confused with disgust. The alt-right that I know intimately is not populated heavily with haters. The haters that I see tend to be on the left: Rosie O’Donnell, Michael Moore, Keith Olbermann, et. al.
People like David Duke and Richard Spencer (and many of us here on this site) simply want to be able to live a different life than the American federal government will allow. Our culture is filthy, our government, academicians, and press demonize us for wanting something that our forefathers took for granted. Which is the right to live as we see fit, within the boundaries of the rule of law, based on natural law, not liberal Jewish judges interpretations of man’s law.
Actually, the Mandela quote that Obama Tweeted is not one I would disagree with. I hope the antifa and the left are listening. They are the ones who need to learn to love.
Following a violent day of protest in Charlottesville, Virginia, former president Barack Obama offered a poignant message about racism on social media Saturday night.
Obama took to Twitter to offer a reflection on the nature of hatred and love, courtesy of Nelson Mandela.
“No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin or his background or his religion…,” the president tweeted in a series of messages. “People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love…”
“‘ …For love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.’- Nelson Mandela,” Obama concluded.
The message came following a day of violent unrest in Charlottesville, after white nationalists descended on the city to protest the planned removal of a statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee. Police evacuated crowds from Emancipation Park, where a rally was to be held at noon, after the white nationalists faced off with counter-protesters. Virginia governor Terry McAuliffe was prompted to declare a state of emergency.
Notice that the “counter-protesters” (antifa, many wearing masks) did not “descend” on Charlottesville. Look for loaded wording in articles written by the MSM. There’s too much of it for me to call out every time, but I see plenty of it.
The violence culminated in a multi-vehicle incident during which a car plowed into a crowd of counter-protesters. One person was reported dead, and dozens injured, over the course of the day. Two Virginia State Police troopers were also killed when a police helicopter assisting with the melee crashed outside of Charlottesville. The incident is under investigation but police say that foul play is not suspected.
One more thing. Is Obama even remotely aware of the white genocide taking place in post-Mandela South Africa? The old Communist sowed the seeds of a modern holocaust that Obama has never said a word about.
