It only took some rain and a Turkish flag backdrop for Obama to finally start to make the visual transition to evil supervillain, as earlier today he defended his escalating attacks on freedom of the press.
Yeah, probably not a good idea to say the words “No Apologies” when Obama is in the middle of kissing the ass of Turkey, an unapologetic genocidal state currently partnering with the CIA to destroy Syria - presumably because Turkey is so good at getting away with genocides?
Furthermore, “No Apologies” is an offensive choice of words considering Obama’s cowardly and very public flip-flop on the recognition of the 1915 genocide committed by Turks against Armenian, Greek, Assyrian and other Christian peoples. In case you didn’t hear - where would you have? - Obama supported the recognition of the Armenian Genocide right up until he took office as president, when he then backed Turkey’s refusal to apologize for their crimes against humanity.
The Turkish-American alliance should be a sign to everyone who the villains are as we enter a very interesting period of world history. Suggestion: Obama should keep the Turkish flag around for whenever he officially announces the domestic suspension of civil liberties that he’s already undertaken. It will be a very clear image at a time when words won’t really work.
