President Obama is visiting Kenya his ancestral home. It was here that his father grew up, was sent to college in Hawaii where he met Obama’s mother, became a minor government official, a man who was an alcoholic and who died in an alcohol related car accident.
President Obama was not there to visit his estranged family, he was there to push his LGBTQ agenda. Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta was not-on-board with his nations most well known “citizen”, as Obama joked.
The Conservative Post reports:
During a conference with Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta, Obama spoke about supporting gay marriage “right.”
Kenya’s penal code states that sexual activity between same-sex partners is punishable by up to 14 years in jail.
Here are Obama’s remarks…
From IJReview via CNN:
“When you start treating people differently not because of any harm they are doing to anybody, but because they are different, that’s the path whereby freedoms begin to erode, and bad things happen. And when a government gets in a habit of people treating people differently, those habits can spread.”
“As an African-American, I am painfully aware of what happens when people are treated differently under the law.”
“The fact of the matter is Kenya and the U.S. share so many values: common love for democracy, entrepreneurship, value for families — these are some things that we share. But there are some things that we must admit we don’t share. Our culture, our societies don’t accept.”
“It is very difficult for us to be able to impose on people that which they themselves do not accept.. This is why I repeatedly say for Kenyans today the [gay rights issue] is generally a non-issue. We want to focus on other areas.”
Wow. Take this Obama!
President Obama making this his main issue has also drawn the ire of the Iran’s Supreme leader, who posted a picture of Obama committing suicide on Twitter. Iran doesn’t have a gay problem, they hang them.
Obama has commit political suicide both in Kenya and in Iran with his nuclear deal.
