Obama Calls His Critics "Enemies"
Written by Raven Clabough

In a last-ditch effort to salvage the Democratic majority, President Obama is encouraging Hispanic voters to remain inspired by stalled immigration "reform" to vote against Republicans on Election Day. More importantly, President Obama is inspiring his constituents to "punish our enemies and reward our friends," encouraging a similar kind of "thugocracy" we have seen with labor unions.

In a radio interview that aired on Univision yesterday, Obama assured Hispanics that immigration overhaul was next on the agenda, despite the lack of Republican support:

If Latinos sit out the election instead of saying, "Were going to punish our enemies and were gonna reward our friends who stand with us on issues that are important to us," if they dont see that kind of upsurge in voting in this election, then I think its going to be harder, and thats why I think its so important that people focus on voting on November 2.

News organizations such as the National Review and Fox News view Obama's remarks during his Univision interview as polarizing, creating an us vs. them atmosphere.

Worse, Americans see the comments as threatening. According to Prison Planet, the statements were astounding new levels of rhetoric from the Great Uniter. Weasel Zippers calls it Leftist demagoguery at its finest. Death By 1000 Papercuts asked: Why does this presidents rhetoric sound increasingly like its coming from a dictator of some two-bit Marxist hellhole? Maybe its some sort of wish fulfillment.

Perhaps, however, when President Obama elected to label his opponents as enemies, he forgot that old proverb, The enemy of my enemy is my friend that may work against him in the upcoming elections.


HEY!! more stuff about enemies!! lol

Since when are opposing political parties in the US considered enemies in the sense you are discussing? He’s so brainwashed with Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals that he can’t do the job he was elected to do. The President of the United States is supposed to be above this petty partisanship.

As far as real enemies go, that is why there is the Secret Service.

“...we’re gonna punish our enemies...”

Obama is starting to get scary.

Straight out of Alinsky. Political opponents are enemies to be demonized, discredited and destroyed.

” Freepers call Americans the enemy every day...if they’re democrats or liberals or someone they don’t like. What’s the big deal? “

The difference is that none of us FReepers - that I know of - has been elected to the one position that represents, and leads, *all* of the people...

(A historical note - Richard Nixon was pilloried for his ‘enemies list’... Why should Obama get a pass??)

Not now. Under Obama, illegal immigration has become a political if not a racially charged issue. Supporters of blanket amnesty saw an evolving demographic process of fundamentally transforming the electorate of the American Southwest, resonating with Obama’s own unfortunate lead, as in his advice to Latinos to “punish our enemies.”
