Skip to comments.Obama Criticizes ‘Aggressive Kind Of Nationalism’ In Indonesia Speech
Posted on 07/05/2017 12:22:04 PM PDT by Cheerio
Former President Barack Obama delivered a speech overseas Saturday, warning that some nations are becoming too nationalistic.
Speaking to a crowd in Jakarta, Indonesia, Obama argued some countries had adopted an aggressive kind of nationalism, adding that there has been an increased resentment of minority groups.
Though he largely stayed away from discussing President Donald Trump, Obama spoke out against the isolationism and increased nationalism that he sees as a global problem.
We start seeing a rise in sectarian politics, we start seeing a rise in an aggressive kind of nationalism, we start seeing both in developed and developing countries an increased resentment about minority groups and the bad treatment of people who dont look like us or practice the same faith as us, he said.

He truly IS working on his appointment as UN Prez! Frankly, I’m shocked because I always thought the POS was too LAZY for any of that.
That, or Dictator of some foreign berg in the future.
This guy is going to prove to be more dangerous OUT of office, than in, I fear.
This Kenyan from Indonesia was never eligible to be President of the United States of America.
It should be plainly evident to everyone by now why the founders insisted on a natural born citizen.
Certainly he didn’t waste time in customs or passport office, since he is a citizen.
He said this on the 4th of July.
These UN worshippers are hoping that it will soon be the global governing body.
...and if you’re top dog there, you’re king of da whole world. Barry is all about dat. It’s about being king... You can make others do the heavy work...
Obama is not happy Americans will, have and are prepared to die for the United States of America.
I’m “agin” globalism, whether aggressive or not.
May karma one day strike you.
How about gun grabbing bad because Hitler.
FUBO, you POS quota boy.
Unless it’s in the name of ummah, of course!
Partial defense of Obama - yes, weird -
The Indonesian context is that they tossed an ethnic Chinese (non-Muslim) politician as Governor of Jakarta, and jailed him for blasphemy, because he made controversial statements about the Koran.
So there’s that. It could be veiled criticism of his hosts too.
I loathe these idiot fool internationalists globalists....
Just because we want borders doesn’t mean we are isolationists...
Here is the Positions I consider very healthy Nationalist positions.
1. No Unchecked unbridled immigration to/from our country. We don’t want people coming here who want to turn OUR country into a slightly less crappy version of their own home country. The larger the number of people from an out group the less likely the out group will integrate successfully integrate into the in group.
2. Limited Immigration to our country so that only people willing to sacrifice their time and money are coming here because they WANT to join WITH US, not because they WANT OUR FREE SHIT.
3. Tourism is a GOOD THING! Tourism is a good thing, it helps people SAMPLE other cultures and decide if they want to incorporate aspects of other cultures (the positive ones ) into their own WITHOUT FORCING THEM DOWN OUR THROATS.
When are obama’s secrets going to be leaked?

Did he forget he is in INDONESIA? Ask the people of E. Timor and Irian Jaya about actual aggressive nationalism from Jakarta.
