What Not “Oppressing” Hath Wrought

REFUGEES:

Obama’s “leading from behind,” i.e., not “oppressing” other countries with our nasty-ass, white, colonial imperialism has had profound consequences – but not in a good way. The misery told in this chart is unimaginable.

Total 34.46M “persons of concern” were “displaced” at the end of 2008 (You can click the little tabs in the graphic). Refugees, basically. People who had to leave home, against their will, because staying meant death, either fast or slow.

By the end of 2015*? (Nearly) DOUBLED. 63.91M.

Perspective? 34.46M is roughly the total population of America’s top 20 biggest cities. (Via the U.S. Census, accurate as of 2015.)

CHANT IT WITH ME: “This is what colonialism looks like!”

 
Thank GOD they’re not “oppressed” anymore.

Heckuva job, Barry.

The Obama Doctrine’s Perfect Analogy

“As far as it’s possible to make out, the Obama Doctrine for the Mideast consisted of an abandonment of our traditional allies in favor of the Muslim Brotherhood, the ur-terror organization that gave birth to al-Qaeda and eventually ISIS. Allowed to take over in Egypt and encouraged in several other states, the Brotherhood was treated as a government-in-waiting — as if the Mafia was being encouraged to take over Italy.”

Heartily recommend this piece in its entirety, Recovering from Obama: Foreign Policy, at American Thinker. It’s brilliant.
