Disgraceful NYT Praise for Obama

Disgraceful NYT Praise for Obama

by Stephen Lendman

Just societies would have held him accountable long ago for high crimes too egregious to ignore. 

The NYT offered high praise for a war criminal multiple times over, a front man for monied interests over popular ones, a serial liar, a moral coward, a disgrace to his race and high office he’s held.

The Times: "The atmosphere at his self-styled farewell address reflected “calm in the midst of the storm, a rock of familiarity and stability and strength,” the handpicked audience “forlorn…realizing the magnitude of the moment, realizing the profundity of its loss.”

Fact: What utter rubbish, a disgusting perversion of truth. His tenure turned America into more of a pariah state than before he entered office. His war on humanity at home and abroad speaks for itself.

The Times: “You don’t know what you’ve got till it’s gone.”

Fact: It’s far from gone. Obama’s legacy includes raping and destroying one country after another, loyally serving Wall Street at the expense of Main Street, thirdworldizing America, transforming poverty into a growth industry, creating mass unemployment, underemployment and human misery, the latter at home and abroad.

The Times: “(I)t is impossible to argue that Obama was not a man of principle…that he did not conduct himself with dignity and respect and that he did not lead the country with those values as a guiding light.”

Fact: Obama betrayed the public trust from day one in office, breaking every major promise made, saying one thing, his deplorable agenda entirely different.

Fact: His agenda showed contempt for democratic values and rule of law principles, governing under a police state apparatus, hardened throughout his tenure, consistently supporting might over right. Millions of casualties attest to his barbarity.

The Times: Obama is “a gentleman soldier…literate in the grand tradition of the great men of letters…scholarly, erudite, well read…an adroit writer…an orator for the ages…(T)he decency…solemnity…splendor…loftiness and literacy…Obama brought to the office was extraordinary…”

Fact: He’s a world class thug, a rogue head of a pariah state, contemptuous of fundamental human and civil rights, arguably the most pure evil president in US history. His high crimes have been well documented.

The Times: …”Obama was a good man and a good president. Some would argue that he was great on both counts.”

Only media scoundrels and damn fools would make such outlandish comments about Obama. His ruthless record speaks for itself. A special place in hell awaits him.
