President Obama ....Enough of GOP Silliness and Coded Language

Well, the GOP conservative America and The new GOP leader Trump asked for it......

GOP leader, Donald Trump, again on yesterday speak about President Obama's reticence in labelling terrorist groups "radical Islamicists."  

Trump and Fox News Wants "Radical Islamic Terrorists" as strategy

For me, it is impossible to avoid the quest for such phraseology as a form of racial code.  As a minimum, the desire for such language is a manifestation of bigotry well beyond any form of logic.  

Yesterday, Trump spent customary parts of his day sitting and playing on Twitter.  The Intercept published a piece which includes Trump's insinuation of Obama complicity in terrorism.

“Look, we’re led by a man that either is not tough, not smart, or he’s got something else in mind,” Trump told Fox News early Monday. “There’s something going on. It’s inconceivable. There’s something going on. … He doesn’t get it or he gets it better than anybody understands — it’s one or the other and either one is unacceptable.”
It’s an extraordinary insinuation. But it’s also the logical extension of the particularly virulent anti-Muslim rhetoric Trump has employed throughout the campaign. Trump’s rhetoric is not simply anti-Muslim; it has its roots in far-right conspiracy theories that hold that Islam itself is an enemy of the United States — and has tentacles at every level of our government.
Trump has elevated those views to the forefront of his campaign to the White House, but he has been a megaphone for them for years.
As far back as 2011, Trump took to Twitter to complain directly to Obama that he had “abandoned Israel” and “engaged the Muslim Brotherhood,” the Islamist Egyptian political party.

@BarackObama You have abandoned Israel and engaged the Muslim Brotherhood, and even the Arab world does not like it

He then blamed Obama for promoting the Arab Spring and began to refer to the Muslim Brotherhood as the president’s “allies”:
The Muslim Brotherhood, @BarackObama's allies in Egypt, will cancel the Camp David Agreement. 

 What a disaster!

Following the mass shooting in Fort Hood, Texas, Trump deemed Obama’s classification of the killings as “workplace violence” as a defense of “radical Islam”:
Why does @BarackObama continue to defend radical Islam? He is calling the Ft. Hood massacre "workplace violence."
By February 2012, this had morphed into Trump outright claiming that Obama “loves radical Islam”:
@BarackObama's budget funds the "Arab Spring" with $800B and the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt $1.3B in military aid. He loves radical Islam.
Two months later, Trump responded to Obama meeting with the Muslim Brotherhood-led Egyptian government by proclaiming that the president’s “friends are enemies of the US and @Israel.”
The WH should not have hosted the Muslim Brotherhood.@BarackObama's friends are enemies of the US and @Israel. The Islamist winter is here.

In the spring of that year, Trump began a crusade to seek Obama’s birth certificate, with the clear implication that the president wasn’t born in the United States (and presumably isn’t Christian, either).

President Obama apparently heard enough. Trump is the nascent leader of a major US political party. He leads a party that seems all consumed with bigotry and in many cases outright racism all bundled in the familiar cloak of white nationalism. What should the rest of the world think of the US as an international leader?

President Obama has had enough!

Trump's current and future leadership of the GOP will be the death knell of a party so consumed with regressive ideology and bigotry, it cannot help but explode into seething hate-filled fragments.
