Obama warns Americans about too much patriotism - on July 4th weekend!

While most Americans are gathering with family and community this weekend to celebrate the most exceptional country in the history of the world, Mr. Hope and Change is halfway around the world talking doom and gloom — and criticizing his successor.

Barack Obama visited Indonesia this weekend, and in a series of appearances, attacked love of country and the policies of Donald Trump.

The Guardian reports:

The former US president said some countries had adopted “an aggressive kind of nationalism” and “increased resentment of minority groups”, in a speech in Indonesia on Saturday that could be seen as a commentary on the US as well as Indonesia.

“It’s been clear for a while that the world is at a crossroads. At an inflection point,” Obama said, telling a Jakarta crowd stories of how much the capital had improved since he lived there as a child.

But he said that increased prosperity had been accompanied by new global problems, adding that as the world confronts issues ranging from inequality to terrorism, some countries – both developed and less developed – had adopted a more aggressive and isolationist stance.

“If we don’t stand up for tolerance and moderation and respect for others, if we begin to doubt ourselves and all that we have accomplished, then much of the progress that we have made will not continue,” he said.

“What we will see is more and more people arguing against democracy, we will see more and more people who are looking to restrict freedom of the press, and we’ll see more intolerance, more tribal divisions, more ethnic divisions, and religious divisions and more violence,” Obama asserted.

While former presidents rarely criticize their successors at home, Obama took the unusual step of going to a foreign country to do it.

Piece of crap Muslim. He's always wanted to see the downfall of America.

He must mean the racial tensions and degeneration that he incited when he was "President", not what Mr. "I Love You!" is spreading. Thanks to a POTUS who loves America and all its Citizens and those who are legally applying for the same, Trump is blowing away "racial tensions" with pro- American legislation and love of Country and our Citizenry.

So, yeah, bash him for that! We'll stand and watch you fail doing that proudly!

The P.O.S. egomaniac does not have the guts to say that crap at home. He did this throughout his so-called "presidency" bashing americanism while abroad. He is a disgrace to this country and the suck-up press has been colluding with him since day one. Go away! Your party lost and your vision of the future has failed.

Please past failure leave our country and go home, if you even have a clue where that would be. Doesn't matter, "you don't have to go home, but you can't stay here"

For God's sake Obama, patriotism is a two way street. Patriots are not intolerant of minorities. We are intolerant of the folks who choose not to help themselves, desecrate the flag, or riot, burn, and loot. We are not tolerant of the people who would come here illegally to subvert and take advantage of our kindness. Our founding fathers lost everything and in some cases their lives; but then I doubt you would or could understand that. You were made a wealthy man for your charade and you should be ashamed of your self for making such statements. I for one will always remember you as a charlatan and one day history will prove it so.

Where is the CIA when you really need them?

Barry is CIA for crying out loud.
Where do you think he came from?

He and Little Timmy Geithner grew up in Indonesia while both parents worked for intelligence (Chase Bank).
Barry's mother and grandma' were CIA.
