Barack Hussein Obama says immigrants should assimilate and learn the English language, yea you heard that right




Barack Hussein Obama the former (thank GOD) President of the United States recently spoke to a group of young European leaders in Berlin. He said that immigrants should assimilate and learn the English language.

Yes you heard that right. It is a good thing Obama isn’t running in the 2020 field of Democrats that are running to the left  trying to out sprint Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez off the Socialist cliff.

Obama made the remarks speaking at an event for his foundation. He referred to himself 392 times at the event solidifying his position as former (thank God) narcissist in Chief.  He said immigrants should move ‘toward assimilation’ and learn English has found a welcome audience among conservatives, who are using it to defend President Trump’s immigration policy.  

‘I worry sometimes when, as we think about how to deal with the immigration issue, we think that any moves towards assimilation of the existing newcomers to the existing culture is somehow a betrayal,’ the former president said.

‘Should we want to encourage newcomers to learn the language of the country they’re moving to? Of course,’ continued Obama, whose immigration policies earned him critics from both parties. Some Democrats mocked him as ‘deporter in chief’ for high levels of deportations. But Obama also set up the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program to extend status for immigrants who came here illegally as their children. Republicans blasted the move as extralegal.

In the same speech that Obama said immigrants should assimilate he said the 2020 Democrat presidential candidates should moderate and realize you don’t always get everything you want.

“One of the things I do worry about sometimes among progressives in the United States is a certain kind of rigidity where we say, ‘Uh, I’m sorry, this is how it’s going to be,’” Obama said, according to the Hill. “And then we start sometimes creating what’s called a ‘circular firing squad,’ where you start shooting at your allies because one of them has strayed from purity on the issues. And when that happens, typically the overall effort and movement weakens.”

“So I think whether you are speaking as a citizen or as a political leader or as an organizer,” Obama continued, “you have to recognize that the way we structure democracy requires you to take into account people who don’t agree with you, and that by definition means you’re not going to get 100 percent of what you want.”

It is a good thing that the former community organizer isn’t running with today’s group of radicals. He would not fit in.
