Rutgers University Speech

An honorary degree recipient stupefies Rutgers
By Jeannie DeAngelis

Barack Obama recently “accepted” an invitation to be the “keynote” speaker at Rutgers University’s commencement.

After gracing the podium with the usual perfunctory niceties, rather than exhibit “sensitivity” toward Muslim graduates, Barack Hussein exercised his “comedic chops” by joking about whether New Jersey breakfast meat should be called pork roll or Taylor ham.”

Then, after sharing that he has  “soft spot” for typical white and 99-year-old grandmas in need of pacemakers, America’s “classless” president spent a great deal of time “rebuking” the Republican presumptive nominee.

In addition to “admonishing” Trump, President Obama used the commencement speech as a platform to lift up “progressive” ideology, put down “political “adversaries, and “defend” the last eight years.

His remarks started with lauding the diversity of a graduating class that included a South Asian philosophy student and a “first-generation Latina student from Jersey City” who probably wouldn’t need a translator to understand Target’s new all “Spanish ad campaign.”

As an entrée to “challenging” the class to pursue “social justice,” Obama told them, “I’m fond of quoting Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., who he believes once said, “The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends towards justice.”

One small problem, “MLK didn’t say it,” the 19th-century Unitarian minister/abolitionist Theodore Parker did.

After Obama “expunged” Winston Churchill from the “redecorated” Oval Office, the president, who exploited the Rutgers discourse to “ridicule” his political adversaries for “lack of brainpower,” had the misquote emblazoned on the rug.

At Rutgers, the guy who just said he has a “soft spot” for grandmas also injected “divisiveness” by suggesting that the “older” Americans are full of  “fear… division and paralysis.”

Then he commended “#feelthebern” moochers for their “cooperation … innovation and hope.”

The president told the soon to be alumni, “So you’ve got the tools to lead us…you’ll look at things with fresher eyes, unencumbered by the biases and blind spots and inertia and general crankiness of your parents and grandparents and old heads like me.”

In other words, anyone who doesn’t “worship” Barack Obama is biased, blind, inert, cranky and “longing for the ‘good old days’.”

That’s why, the president informed the graduates, “the ‘good old days’ weren’t that great.”

He warned that all talk about the past should be taken “with a grain of salt,” because it comes from a generation that flourished when “America pretty much did whatever it wanted around the world.”

After “belittling” the elders, Obama praised himself when he said, “In fact, by almost every measure, America is better, and the world is better, than it was 50 years ago, or 30 years ago, or even eight years ago” – a comment that thrilled the “clapping seals” in mortarboards.

For good measure, the president also brought up “slavery, Jim Crow, and the suppression of women’s rights.”  Then he claimed that since 1983, the year his “college transcripts” went missing, “crime, teenage pregnancy, and poverty rates have declined.”

Obama chose “not to quote” statistics regarding “illegal felons” roaming our streets and threatening our children, 50+ million, mainly black “aborted” American babies, and millions of “unemployed” people receiving government subsidies.

Nor did the “equal pay advocate” mention that in his “own” administration women still earn less than men.

Instead, Obama “bedazzled” spectators with bluster about “jobs, ObamaCare, clean energy, and marriage equality.”  He even mentioned “eliminating” polio, and “cutting” infant mortality, but didn’t reference “importing” Third World diseases like MDR-TB, or Planned Parenthood “peddling” baby body parts.

Barack Obama is so “clueless,” that in an attempt to “inspire” his audience, the pro-choice president mentioned Alice Paul, who, besides being a “daughter of New Jersey” and a suffragette, was ardently “pro-life.”

After hearing the Rutgers University keynote “commencement speech” delivered by Barack Obama, it’s clear that the 44th president thinks he is the “Bill Cosby” of politics.

The difference is that unlike Cosby, who was accused of “drugging” women with Quaaludes, to “stupefy” his audience, Obama infuses his “delusional” rhetoric with “Cosby-style” humor.

Thanks to Obama, Rutgers graduates have much to “fear;” yet the president “encouraged” them not to fear the future.  That led him to a second point where he stressed globalism, which he defined as an “interconnected…world.”

Then, Obama “hinted” that he believes responsible “border security” is solving a problem “in isolation.”

This is Obama’s rationale:

“When overseas states start falling apart, they become breeding grounds for terrorists …that ultimately can reach our shores.  When developing countries don’t have functioning health systems, epidemics like Zika or Ebola can spread and threaten Americans, too.”

True, a wall won’t stop “terrorism or disease.” But, enforcing “immigration laws” and refusing to “import and resettle refugees” that ISIS has vowed to “infiltrate” might help.

After “hamstringing” the U.S. military Obama then added:

“But I worry if we think that the entire burden of our engagement with the world is up to the 1 percent who serve in our military, and the rest of us can just sit back and do nothing.  They can’t shoulder the entire burden.”

Then, further along in the speech Obama “contradicted” that logic when he said, “We can close tax loopholes on hedge fund managers and take that money and give tax breaks to help families with child care or retirement.”

Put simply, when it comes to “leveling the playing field,” the excuse Obama uses to “demilitarize” the armed forces, he then uses to justify forcing a “small percentage of earners” to support those who  “just sit back and do nothing.”

Lacking any quality “input” of his own, and without “uttering” his name, Obama spent a “lot of time” taking Donald Trump to task.

After mocking Trump “building an endless wall,” Barack pulled out the “isolating and disparaging Muslims” card, the “betrayal of our values” card and the “important partners in the fight against violent extremism” card.

Oh, and right before some “egghead” in the audience yelled “Four more years!”, Obama insinuated Trump “blames America’s challenges on immigrants.”

From there, in an attempt to portray anyone who disagrees with his politics as “uneducated, illogical, anti-intellectual and troglodyte in nature,” Obama implied that those who “contradict” his views, namely Trump, lack “facts, evidence, reason, logic, and an understanding of science.”

This from a guy who doesn’t believe partially born “newborns” are human and that “greenhouse gasses” are a bigger threat than ISIS teaching French boys how to kill.

With that in mind, maybe Obama should refrain from highlighting his “own” shortcomings by saying things like, “In politics and in life, ignorance is not a virtue.  It’s not cool to not know what you’re talking about. ”

After emphasizing that the “good old days” should be taken with a “grain of salt,” Obama painted a certain Republican presidential candidate as unenlightened by calling upon our  “enlightened” limited government Founding Fathers, many of whom owned the “slaves” he alluded to when talking about “disregarding” our nation’s past.

Obama, who “scorns” rugged individualism and who once called our Constitution deeply flawed told his audience “rational thought and experimentation and the capacity of informed citizens to master our own fates…is embedded in our constitutional design.”

That was right before the man who thinks he’s “the smartest guy in the room” cited modern technology making us “more confident in our ignorance.”

And, quite frankly, who better than Barack Obama to recognize that “a whole lot of folks who are book smart…have no common sense?”

Barack alluded to Donald when he mentioned leaders who have “a disdain for facts, when they’re not held accountable for repeating falsehoods.” Maybe, instead of expelling “CO2” when talking climate change, Obama should take some time to “self-reflect.”

In a call to the citizenry that sounded more like a quote from Karl Marx’s Communist Manifesto than a college commencement speech by an American president, Obama mentioned “collective decisions on behalf of a common good.”

Then, after “implying” that Donald Trump is a complete “idiot,” Obama, who clearly forgets what he’s “reading” off the Teleprompter, said progressive goals are reached through “advocacy… organizing… alliance-building, and deal-making, and …changing of public opinion.”

Obama claimed all this “happened because ordinary Americans who cared participated in the political process.”

A legend in his “own” mind, what’s clear is that Obama doesn’t “realize” that those are the very things that propelled the Art of the Deal-maker to the front of the pack.

In the end, Obama “offered” the Rutgers graduating Class of 2016 “insights” he’s never taken to “heart” himself.

That’s why, when the president uttered the words, “your generation will feel the brunt of this catastrophe,” it sounded more like he was referring to “his presidency” than an issuing “indictment” on climate change denial or Donald Trump.

The “final “word was left to Trump who didn’t take the “attack” lying down.

Summing up what many “think” of Obama, Trump offered this “tweet” as his official response:
