Former President Obama lashed out at the vision of American nationalism articulated by his successor, President Donald Trump, while speaking Tuesday at Rice University in Houston, Texas.
Obama expressed his distaste for nationalism– expressing his view that contemporary nationalist movements were based not upon “pride in country, but hatred for somebody on the other side of the border.” Obama tried to make an excuse for the inability of establishment liberal politics to respond to nationalist sentiment- alleging that the establishment had failed to “adapt quickly enough to the fact that there were people being left behind [by globalization].”
According to the former President, tens of millions of Americans are consumed with “hatred” towards Mexicans and Central Americans. Yet, the fact is that the United States has accepted more migrants from Latin America and across the world within recent history than any previous time in American history. It will never be enough for the former President, and Americans who express a desire for the most reasonable immigration restrictions will be defined by their “hatred.”
Obama would go on to bemoan the rise of alternative media, expressing a sense of nostalgia for a media environment akin to the 1980’s in which “your news cycle was still governed by the stories that were going to be filed by AP, the Washington Post, maybe the New York Times, and the three broadcast stations.”
How inconvenient for the former President that the legacy dinosaur mainstream media no longer possesses an exclusive chokehold on informing the people.
Joe Exotic’s Legal Team Traveling to DC To Request Presidential Pardon
They hope to get the attention of President Trump.
The legal team of exotic wildlife connoisseur and Netflix ‘Tiger King’ Joe Exotic is planning a tour-style trip to Washington D.C. in order to request a presidential pardon for Exotic from President Trump. Exotic is currently serving a 22-year sentence at a federal prison in Texas, after being convicted for a murder-for-hire plot against a Florida big cat sanctuary owner. Exotic maintains his innocence, claiming he was set up by nefarious elements within the exotic animal and zoo trade.
The Exotic advocates appear intent on publicizing the larger-than-life story surrounding the Tiger King’s downfall and arrest, documented in the hit Netflix series many quarantined Americans have become enamored with.
Big League Politics published a new letter from the controversial and colorful zookeeper, detailing his continued claims of innocence and his life within the Federal Medical Center at Fort Worth. Eric Love, a close Exotic associate, thanked the Tiger King’s new fans for their support of the now-incarcerated animal lover. Exotic’s lawyers are appealing the Oklahoma native’s murder-for-hire and animal abuse convictions in the federal court system, in addition to seeking an official pardon from the President.
President Donald Trump confirmed that he knew little to nothing about the peculiar Oklahoma zookeeper, having been largely preoccupied with the federal response to the coronavirus pandemic ever since the six-part documentary series covering Exotic’s downfall has come out. Donald Trump Jr. is known to be a fan of the series, and suggested that his father might be willing to commute Exotic’s hefty sentence if made familiar with the big cat lover’s case.
