Obama’s New ‘Gay’ Foreign Policy Not Helping Anyone


obama_rides_bicycle

After promising Vladimir to be extra flexible before the election, Obama is pulling back and trying to retaliate against Russia for the Snowden espionage by amping up the gay rights angle.

Getting into a pissing contest with Putin over gay rights while Syria burns seems like an odd choice. It no doubt makes sense to Obama’s donors. There are quite a few billionaires, like Amazon CEO and new Washington Post owner, Jeff Bezos, who have spent millions on gay rights. But Obama is in theory supposed to be thinking of the big picture, instead of catering to the bedroom interests of his billionaires.

It also doesn’t help anyone.

Instead of meeting with Putin in Russia, Obama will make a point of meeting up with gay rights activists in Russia. This makes for good press in San Francisco, but just makes gays more hated in Russia.

The Russian authorities have found it easier to shut down gay rights groups by accusing them of being foreign agents. The accusations held some merit because these NGOs took Obama’s money. Now to make the case a real slam dunk, Obama will meet with them.

The sight of Obama meeting with the leaders of already unpopular and suspect organizations will make the charges that they are a foreign entity meant to undermine Russia that much easier to sell to the Russian public.

The gay rights groups may be counting on Obama as their only hope. If so, boy did they ever pick the wrong horse. Reagan was the only one to crack Russia to any extent. Not only is Obama not Reagan, but he isn’t even Carter. But some of those leaders may be counting on a lucrative flight out of the country and a career testifying about gay rights in Russia in front of various EU committees. So they care less about Russian gays and more about Eurocrats and Obamacrats.

Meanwhile, while the Middle East hangs in the balance, Obama fulfills every pathetic wimpy liberal stereotype you can think of. His antics are not impressing anyone. And they are making America look like it’s run by a bunch of sissies.

    Obama as a committed anti-America destroyer with no moral or ethical core, certainly finds it more important for sexual perverts to keep perverting sex than just about anything else (except confiscating the wealth of productive Americans to redistribute to the pro-slaves to the state population the liberals/Progressives have created.)

    “And they are making America look like it’s run by a bunch of sissies.”

    It is, isn’t it?

      I was going to say the same thing.

        takes one to spot one , sissy.

          That is SO true! And profound too! Wow…

          And to think, YOU spotted that!

    Bath House Barack has the Gay’s back. All is right with the world.

    America could sure use a more manly closeted bisexual in charge.

    The Maricopa County Cold Case Posse has indicated that obama’s Selective Service Registration card is a forgery. It is the only one in the known universe with a two digit date stamp. If it is a forgery, a felony has been committed. Is a brown president subject to the same laws as everyone else?

    What’s the politically correct way to suggest the U.S. Congress and the Department of Defense are fagging out on investigating the allegations of fraud regarding the pretensident’s Selective Service Registration Card?

    Completely ridiculous article. So should Obama pause all other matters in the wake of Syria or is it just the gay issue that bothers Mr Greenfield?

    • Biff Henderson

      With the world at the brink of war the answer is obvious unless you think that the sunset of a Nuclear winter would make a nice addition to a long overdue redesign of the rainbow coalition.

      Methinks it’s just the gay issue that bothers you, appropriately-named Anonymous.

    “…they are making America look like it’s run by a bunch of sissies.” Are you kidding? The London Telegraph called Obama “president pantywaist”. (Hopefully, everyone will be able to see the link)

    Wow, what a steaming pile of homophobia. You know what they say about the biggest homophobes. It’s just a matter of time until you’re coming out.

  • georgejochnowitz

    Rightists, Marxists, and Islamists are united in their opposition to homosexuality. Rightists are anti-gay because Leviticus 20:13 commands us to kill homosexuals. Marxists believe that homosexuality is caused by economic differences and will disappear once communism arrives and everybody will think alike, as Marx said. Islamists oppose homosexuality because they are filled with hate.
    Thise of us who oppose Marxism should make a point of reminding leftists that every single Marxist state has always persecuted homosexuals. It is a weakness of the left that nobody has taken advantage of–so far.

    There’s nothing right about gays. Yes, the U.S. is being run by a bunch of sissies.
