Did you hear Obama cancelled 4th of July firework displays for the whole military because he’s a Secret Kenyan Mooslum who hates America? Did you also hear that OBUMMER cancelled the fireworks displays for the troops so he and his family could funnel that money into his $100 million dollar trip to Africa?
If you have heard of Obama War on the Fourth of July, then it’s probably because you’ve found yourself on THIS article Fox News’ website. This story, originally circulating on right wing blogs, really took off once Fox covered it. Hundreds of tweets are pouring in from the blissfully ignorant American masses every hour to push rhetoric that is 100% BULLSHIT.
First off, yes, certain military bases have decided to cancel July 4th firework displays. Yes, they are citing budget cuts. No, Obama did not say “I NEED MORE CASH MONEY FOR MY BOMB ASS TRIP TO AFRICA, GIMME THE GODDAMN MILITARY FIREWORKS BUDGET." What happened, if you’ll all recall all the way back to MARCH 2013, is that the SEQUESTER went into effect. Those responsible for the tweets I’ll be posting might need a little bit more. The SEQUESTER was a Republican plan to enact automatic spending cuts to the federal budget. Obama urged Congress to come to an agreement over lowering the debt, so sequestration would NOT GO INTO EFFECT. And, as you can guess by the outrage over fireworks, the cuts went into effect.
Secondly, Obama’s trip to Africa has absolutely nothing to do with the cuts. In fact, if you read that stupid Fox News article, the TITLE is literally the ONLY PLACE THEY EVEN TRY TO MAKE THE CONNECTION to the Africa trip. Why? BECAUSE THEY CAN’T ACTUALLY MAKE THE CONNECTION BECAUSE THERE ISN’T ONE.
So, congrats Fox News! You were able to conflate two separate things and effectively kill two American bald eagles with one really dumb stone.
Anyway, without further ado, here are just a few more of the people who are more concerned with the lack of things exploding in the air for the soldiers to enjoy then they’ve probably ever been with the things exploding over their heads that can kill them…
I FOUGHT FOR MY FIREWORKS AND MY RACISM AND MY RIGHT TO TYPE IN ALL CAPS LEAVING OUT ANY PUNCTUATION I DAMN WELL PLEASE, DAMMIT TO HELL! YOU WONT WIN OBAMA
That’s right! Obama is KING OF AMERICA who can just spend and cut whatever and whenever he pleases. There’s like, no one else involved with these things!
Arrogant, selfish…AND MUSLIM!
lmao. NO AFRICA FOR YOU, OBAMA. NO AFRICA FOR YOU.
Quick question, Megan. Were you also “pretty fucking pissed” when the GOP blocked a jobs bill for veterans? Or how about when Republicans’ attempts to cut benefits for vets?
#unamerican #fucker #HAHAHAHAHAHA
I like how this person likely literally imagines Obama packing boxes and sending them out to military bases across the country.
Come on, Emily! You can’t even read the right wing talking points your reading correctly! It’s not a $100,000 trip! It’s $100,000,000 trip! GAWD.
I love how these tweets come across like these folks think there’s like this ONE REALLY FUCKING BIG fireworks show that all the American troops in the world just look forward to, sit back and enjoy every year.
How? By not?
Your mom is mad dumb.
Neither can I!
OK there, tough guy. Calm down. Take a deep breathe. Open up a book. Read up on how “government” works. Then kick your own ass.
You tell ‘em, Blake. We we all know, no American President has ever stepped foot in Africa because white U.S. Presidents never go to Africa!
