Senegalese president shoots
down Obama’s push for gay
rights in Africa

Daily Caller, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:PageTurner, 6/27/2013 10:04:51 PM

During his first visit to Africa as president, Barack Obama took the opportunity to champion same-sex marriage, despite the fact that he was speaking in a country where homosexuality is forbidden and a punishable crime. Senegalese President Macky Sall rebuffed Obama’s urging by saying that although his country is “very tolerant,” it is not ready to decriminalize homosexuality. Obama’s advocacy for gay rights in Africa came within twenty-four hours of arriving in Senegal.

Comments:
Now he´s got Senegal kicking him around, joining Ecuador. Ain´t being an ´ordinary country´ grand, Bamster?

He says he stands with muslims but he just can´t resist any opportunity to try to shove lifestyle choices in their faces that are against their cultural beliefs, be it a gay ambassador to female diplomats and ambassadors.

One thing I will side with muslims on and that is neither of us approves of the homosexual lifestyle. I just don´t agree with how they solve the problem.

Most of Africa is awash in AIDS infected men and women. And in some of the tribal cultures, it is believed that a man who has AIDS will be cured if he has sexual intercourse with a virgin. That´s one of them African traditions that is not so good.
So going to Africa and pushing homosexual rights is not a good idea.
But Barack considers himself to be some sort of prophet, above the puny logic the rest of us use.

Have we ever seen a piece of work LIKE this arrogant man with the messiah complex? He thinks he can go to Ireland and lecture them on Catholic education which was NONE of his beeswax. Now, he thinks he can preach what many Africans see as perversion to the Senegalese? What is his problem...

Obama is living in a cloud. This country has huge problems of all sorts and there is Obama off in Africa telling the Africans they must accept gay rights. Before that he was in Ireland shooting down Catholic education, and before that he was telling the Russians that he intended to draw down the supply of US nuclear weapons, to which the Russians have replied that they are developing a new super weapon with which to wipe out America.

Yet polls are showing that half the country still supports Obama, and Massachusetts just elected a 40 year career liberal Democrat Congressman as their new US Senator with the promise that he will support Obama´s progressive agenda!

It seems to me that too many people are taken in by the fallacious "no discrimination" reasoning Obama used in the video clip attached to this story. All of us discriminate every day. To make a decision is to discriminate. The pious sounding reasoning is that it is always wrong to discriminate (make a decision). We do it all the time. Discrimination is often acceptable if it conforms to a difference in reality. Obamacare for example allows children to stay on their parents policy until they are 36. That is discrimination on the basis of age. Why stop at 36 or why allow very young children to be on their parents policy? We recognize that this is acceptable because children need the support of their parents. They are different in a real way which makes the discrimination acceptable and even good. Likewise a man should discriminate against other men and find a woman as a marriage partner. This discrimination is based on a reality - Men and women are different and so there are many valid ways they should treat each other different. There is no universal principle of non discrimination as the court implied. There is only some arbitrary line such as age 36 where we justify the discrimination as valid. It is certainly not a matter of hatred and bigotry to come to a different conclusion as to what is a valid form of discrimination.

You see, #16, liberals DO discriminate, but they comfort themselves by saying they are discriminating FOR someone or something. But, they fail to realize that when you discriminate FOR you also discriminate AGAINST others. As long as they emphasize that they are helping some group, they are quite comfortable discriminating.

talk about his visit to Africa, does any one else find it interesting that the picture of Obama standing in the doorway of no return - the very door way where people were boarded in a boat to be delivered to another country, that this country actually sold their people!

If parents sold a child, it is considered a terrible deed. But here is a nation that actually sold their own citizens, but it´s the buyers dishonor as represented by historians. The world is crazy.

#1 Muslims give lip service to banning homosexuality but regularly use Bacha boys, the sex slaves that service men. the reason that is not considered homosexuality is that they are not in a love relationship. Those in a love/long term homosexual relationship are the ones that are often beheaded. But men are allowed their bacha boys (Yasser Arafat notorious for this). a friend who married in Middle East told me this is a commom practice. Very sad, this child abuse..PBS even did a special on it. http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/dancingboys/

Even with carriers off the coast and fighter jets in the air, I´m hoping that some irate group over there decides to send obama a strong message that his presence in that part of the world is not welcome. It might be the wakeup call that he sorely needs.

The audience for Stinky´s remarks on gay rights is the American gay left, the tiny, yet loud and obnoxious, minority within a minority and one of his core support groups.

On foreign soil particularly, Stinky shows no sense of protocol, no sense of when to keep his mouth shut, and not even the common sense to consult with those who DO know protocol about how to conduct himself.

His knowledge and experience have not progressed beyond those of a community organizer, i.e. political thug, in Chicago.

#20, these are the same people who strap bombs on children to use as WMDs.

They do not care about "the individual" as an individual, a Person. Having "rights" is an alien concept.

This is one key area in which the West and the Judeo-Christian Weltanschauung differ from the rest of the world, especially one which has a blood-lust at the core.

But back to BO´s increasingly horrible, miserable, bumbling escapades in the homeland...

ALEXANDRIA, VIRGINIA — Jose Calderon, 42, of Sterling, Virginia, was sentenced today to 30 months in prison, followed by three years of supervised release, for engaging in a bribery scheme that resulted in the issuance of driver’s licenses to illegal aliens. Dana J.

President Barack Obama is out of gas. Pooped out. Gone fishing. Or rather, golfing. He’s just not that into it anymore. The republic is safe from any further vast left-wing legislative prescriptions for our ills. But Obama’s increasing job fatigue is, paradoxically, cause for serious concern. While he sits back, aides in the White House and in the agencies are busy enacting a stealth agenda of rules and regulations. And on the world stage, Washington’s withdrawal threatens national security. The president on display at Tuesday’s State of the Union is one who has shrunk from the pretension of becoming a president on

Argentina´s Luck Is Finally Running Out

Argentina’s luck is finally starting to run out. It devalued its currency by 15 percent last week, marking the beginning of a possible economic crisis of the kind Argentina has become known for. Argentina’s problem is that it has followed the logic of populism for more than a decade and President Cristina Kirchner is showing no interest in changing course. In the 1990s Argentina combined far-reaching but sometimes flawed market-reforms with irresponsible fiscal policies, culminating in its 2002 default on $81 billion in debt—the largest sovereign default in history. The country delinked its currency from the dollar, experienced a severe economic

The story from the embattled school administrators is that a "child nutrition manager" sought to correct the arrears of parents´ payments to their subsidized lunch program ($2.50 a day) and, after giving a day´s notice, had food service workers yank the trays of served food right out of the children´s little

The action was taken due to the “federal government’s poor response” in ensuring the security of the state’s inhabitants, Gonzalo Torres, a coordinator of the Citizen Safety and Justice System, or SSyJC, organization, said Friday. The vigilantes said they seized control of the towns, all part of the municipality of Chilpancingo, because their residents are the victims of criminal gangs that extort and kidnap

Socialism: The huge currency devaluations that hit Venezuela and Argentina last week could be seen coming a mile away. This is a warning to the U.S. about big-government spending policies financed by printing money. The markets have given a resounding vote of no confidence to many emerging-market currencies, triggering sell-offs as far flung as Turkey, Russia and South Africa. But nowhere were the losses as catastrophic as those in two socialist Latin American countries that have thumbed their noses at fiscal discipline, ruthlessly used printed cash to expand their states and treated their citizens as cash cows, gleefully chasing out thousands of

President Barack Obama again denied any wrongdoing by the IRS over their targeting of conservative tea party groups, telling Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly there was “not even a smidgen of corruption” in the way the tax enforcer processed tea partiers’ 501(c)4 paperwork. (Snip) “So you’re saying there was no corruption there at all?” O’Reilly asked. “Absolutely not,” the president replied. “There were some bone-headed decisions out of a local office.” “But no mass corruption?” O’Reilly persisted. “Not even mass corruption,” a visibly-annoyed Obama replied. “Not even a smidgen of corruption.” It’s a far cry from Obama’s May 2013 statement called the targeting “outrageous.”
