Obama has lost it! Says Iranians chanting ‘death to America’ share ‘common cause’ with GOP

obamairan0805Comparing American politicians to Muslim mobs screaming “death to America” is an insult like no other in American politics – and President Obama hurled it Wednesday right at Republicans opposed to his nuclear deal with Iran.

Before a crowd of cheering sycophants at American University in Washington, Obama was patronizing before he became insulting. But the insult came.

“I recognize that resorting to force may be tempting in the face of the rhetoric and behavior that emanates from parts of Iran. It is offensive. It is incendiary. We do take it seriously,” he said, as though he was talking to third-graders.

“But superpowers should not act impulsively in response to taunts, or even provocations that can be addressed short of war. Just because Iranian hard-liners chant ‘death to America’ does not mean that that’s what all Iranians believe.”

And that’s when the hammer fell.

“In fact, it’s those hard-liners who are most comfortable with the status quo. It’s those hard-liners chanting ‘death to America’ who have been most opposed to the deal. They’re making common cause with the Republican caucus.”

You have to see it to believe it.

Social media was disgusted by the outburst.
