Obama made the remarks in a commencement speech at City College of New York, in Harlem, praising the school for having a diverse student body, which she said “some folks” fail to value.
"They seem to view our diversity as a threat to be contained rather than as a resource to be tapped," she said. "They tell us to be afraid of those who are different, to be suspicious of those with whom we disagree.”
She also said Americans “don't build up walls to keep people out because we know that our greatness has always depended on contributions from people who were born elsewhere but sought out this country and made it their home."
False statement. Our greatness depends on Americans being Americans, no matter where they came from, and on the government staying the heck out of the way. Liberals will never, ever get that, because they think they know best. Diversity is just a trumped up term designed to divide us. It doesn't matter, or it shouldn't. A person's worth is not determined by his or her ethnicity, but by his or her character, determination, and work ethic. Yet another thing liberals will never get.
***Here's how liberals do things: Vox editor suspended for encouraging riots at Trump rallies.
You can rest assured that this coward would never been seen anywhere near the violence, he just encourages it from the safety of his office. I'm glad they suspended him.
Imagine the outcry from the Left if a conservative encouraged rioting at a Clinton rally.
***This is what happens when a Republican goes squishy. Republican governor Nathan Deal of Georgia has recently vetoed gun rights on college campuses and a religious liberty bill which would have protected people who don't support same sex marriages. As a result, his poll numbers are plummeting. Good. He needs to be voted out.
When you’re busted by your kids, you realize that some damage has been done. Your credibility is shot, at least for now. Your ability to buy family peace with a promise is gone—they don’t believe you anymore. “Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a longing fulfilled is a tree of life” (Proverbs 13:12).
How’s your heart doing right now? Have you been severely disappointed? lied to? let down? One of the most beautiful aspects of our relationship with God is that he never overpromises. He means everything he says. He delivers on time, every time.
Think back to the blessings that only God could have sent—the financial relief, the love of friends, the joy of family—and pause to remember and enjoy the fulfillments of your longings. God is good!
