President Obama Called Out The Folks That Want To "Pop Off" About How He's Handled The Crisis In Paris
Source- President Barack Obama is sending a message to critics he says "pop off" with their opinions about the U.S. campaign against the Islamic State.
He says they should present a specific plan. And if his critics think their advisers are smarter than Obama's, the president says, "I want to meet them."
Terrorism is no laughing matter. I think we can all agree there. However, can we just agree to look past what this press conference is regarding and embrace the fact that President Obama just used "Folks that want to pop off..." in a completely genuine tone in a completely serious setting. If that doesn't make you smile during this tragic time then you are probably one of the lunatics on my always rational FaceBook feed. You know, the people that believe that Barack Obama was somehow responsible for a terrorist attack that took the lives of 150 innocent victims overseas.
Either way, this comment from the POTUS did those agenda pushing whack jobs a favor too. It reminded them that not only is Barack Obama just another democratic President that they blindly hate, but he's a black democratic President that they blindly hate. How's that dose of reality taste?. Does it hurt to be reminded of your subtly racist ways? Scapegoat the President if you want, but always remember that he's the first of his kind. It's easier for some of us, that don't have confederate flags hanging from our porch, to forget that. Sometimes you just need a black person of power to say "pop off" and emphasize how far race relations have come. It seems like every week we have a new story revolving around the racial unrest in this country. Well, guess what everybody, we still have a black president and that has to count for something. Sure, there are people that make him the whipping boy (because they likely supported slavery at one point) for anything and everything simply because they don't like the amount of melanin in his skin, but hey, haters gonna hate. I appreciate my black President and his rare use of urban culture to call attention to exactly how much he has revolutionized the position he currently holds. For better or worse, Barack has cracked open the doors that Hillary is asking Bill to hold open for her now. That's what America is about, and with all the senseless violence, based on ridiculously outdated ideals, going on around the world we should never forget that. If I had one request it's that next time he comes out in all black and a Los Angeles Kings snapback, because he's the ultimate...ehhh...never mind.
