[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]During his speech to announce his candidacy for president, Donald Trump made a comment about illegal immigrants, the foreign invaders who cross the border with complete disregard for the law, that had many people furious. Trump spoke of the criminal element that is taking advantage of our far too porous southern border. He added that he’s sure there are good people that also come across in search of opportunity. However, those who seek to divide and conquer chose to highlight only his criticism of the criminals crossing the border which led to Univision, NBC, and Macy’s, so far, severing their business relationship with Trump. Similar comments from Barack Obama, however, have drawn silence.
[/vc_column_text][banner300 banner=”5517620b381df”][vc_column_text]At a townhall in Tennessee on Wednesday, Obama spoke about illegal immigration he referred to a certain criminal element as gang-bangers.
“I mean, look, we should not be encouraging illegal immigration,” Obama said. “What we should be doing is setting up a smart, legal immigration system that doesn’t separate families, but does focus on making sure that people who are dangerous, people who are gang-bangers or criminals — that we’re deporting them as quickly as possible, that we’re focusing our resources there — that we’re focusing on a strong border. We’ve made improvements on all those fronts, but we could be doing even more if we had immigration reform.”
Hold the phone!
Obama said what about illegals? He dared say that some are dangerous people who are gang-bangers or criminals? Sounds an awful lot like what Donald Trump said, right?
Is there a progressive push to oust Obama from office over his comments?
Is there a call to all the networks to sever any relationships or plans they have with Obama?
Is there a cry out to the publisher of Obama’s books to cease publishing?
Is there a demand that all bookstores pull all of Obama’s books?
Is there a move to impeach Obama for his “racist” words?
The answer to each of those questions is a resounding NO.
Obama, as usual, gets a pass. But, while his progressive, Marxist base and pals in the media are remaining silent, there is one person who has called Obama, and those looking the other way, out on what was said.
That person is Donald Trump.
In his statement, which was posted on Facebook, Trump said, “There are few occasions on which I agree with statements made by President Obama, however, his statement today reflects the serious problems associated with illegal immigration and the inability of politicians to secure our borders. We must continue to vigorously fight ot protect the United States and Make America Great Again!”

The media and others have attempted to distort Mr. Trump’s remarks and protray him as a racist, when his remarks are far less controversial than President Obama’s. It is our expectation that the media responds to President Obama with the same vitriolic manner for his statement made earlier today. Where is the outcry from the mainstream media demanding an apology from the president?
The fact of the matter is, there will be no outcry because doing so does not further the progressive agenda to fundamentally transform America and rid it of anyone who would dissent or go against their ideas and plans.
As always, Obama will get a pass and we will be told that he either misspoke or we misunderstood what he was really saying.
