Obama is a one-trick pony and all you need is one guess to spot the trick.
After lefties tried to make the missing sub story the Muslim migrants who may have perished while trying to invade Europe, Obama decided to pick it up and go all in on it in a CNN interview.
Speaking from Athens with CNN’s Christiane Amanpour, Obama said that one of the most pressing threats to democracy is “obscene inequality.”
“Right now we have 24 hour coverage — and I understand it — of this submarine, the submersible that tragically is right now lost at the bottom of the sea,” Obama said in an interview conducted hours before the U.S. Coast Guard confirmed the deaths of the five passengers. “At the same time, right here, just off the coast of Greece we had 700 people dead, 700 migrants who were apparently being smuggled.”
“It’s made news, but it’s not dominating in the same way. In some ways, it’s indicative of the degree to which people’s life chances have grown so disparate,” he added. “It’s very hard to sustain a democracy when you have such massive concentrations of wealth.”
A private sub with some wealthy people going missing while trying to reach the Titanic is a unique story. It’s why it got more attention.
The Muslim invaders have gotten plenty of coverage over an invasion that really took off due to Obama’s Arab Spring. Everyone has already done this and there’s nothing new here. Muslim migrants invade Europe in shoddy boats intended to sink so that the local authorities will be forced to rescue them and bring them in. Occasionally it backfires.
The issue here isn’t the concentration of wealth. Pakistan, where some of the invaders originated, is far more concentrated when it comes to wealth. And indeed two of the passengers on the sub were Pakistanis.
There’s a contrast to be made there that the media won’t touch and neither will Obama.
