Bathhouse Barry along with this Moose Slime brothers along with the leftist in America are they only intolerant people. 

They are hateful in words and deeds.

Putting America and Americans first is never a bad thing inspite of what the left says.

“The world is at a crossroads.”

Former President Barack Obama delivered a speech overseas Saturday, warning that some nations are becoming too nationalistic.

Speaking to a crowd in Jakarta, Indonesia, Obama argued some countries had adopted “an aggressive kind of nationalism,” adding that there has been an “increased resentment of minority groups.”

Though he largely stayed away from discussing President Donald Trump, Obama spoke out against the isolationism and increased nationalism that he sees as a global problem.

“We start seeing a rise in sectarian politics, we start seeing a rise in an aggressive kind of nationalism, we start seeing both in developed and developing countries an increased resentment about minority groups and the bad treatment of people who don’t look like us or practice the same faith as us,” he said.

Obama also emphasized the importance eliminating intolerance around the world.

“If we don’t stand up for tolerance and moderation and respect for others, if we begin to doubt ourselves and all that we have accomplished, then much of the progress that we have made will not continue,” Obama said.

“What we will see is more and more people arguing against democracy, we will see more and more people who are looking to restrict freedom of the press, and we’ll see more intolerance, more tribal divisions, more ethnic divisions, and religious divisions and more violence,” he added.

The former president said that during his presidency, he “wasn’t worried about what was in the newspapers” on a daily basis but was more concerned with his legacy 20 years down the road.

Obama praised the Paris Climate Accord, calling it “the most ambitious agreement in history to fight climate change,” but denounced the temporary absence of American leadership,” referring to Trump’s decision in June to remove the United States from the agreement.

Speaking in the Muslim-majority country, Obama argued people must respect those of all faiths.

“My stepfather … was raised a Muslim but he respected Hindus and he respected Buddhists and he respected Christians,” he said.

“If you are strong in your own faith then you should not be worried about someone else’s faith,” Obama added.

Joseph Curl of the Daily Wire criticized Obama’s claim that “the world is at a crossroads,” writing, “But not America. That ‘crossroads’ came and went in Election 2016. Americans chose America First.”
