Obama Shakes Raul Castro’s Hand in South Africa- PROVES HE’S A COMMUNIST

FILED TO: Politics

Finally, the proof the right has always been looking for back up their claim that President Obama is a practicing Communist: A handshake with Raul Castro, leader of the mighty military threat, Cuba. No matter that it was at the funeral of Nelson Mandela and attended by leaders from over 91 countries – the customary human greeting between the two men obviously means more than meets the eye (think secret plans for global Marxist utopia).

The delightful Mona Charen of National Review sums it up correctly:

    This story is such outrage porn and link-bait, it should highlighted with a minnow on a stripper pole.

    Between POTUS being polite to another foreign leader to taking a picture with other foreign leaders (again, being cordial and polite), the media is desperate to find some way to turn the memorial of one our last great secular leaders into another example of ‘Obama Fucks It Up for Everyone!!”.

    This is beyond absurd.

      “Outrage Porn” – I’ll be using that, if you don’t mind.

    People are now referring to this incident as ‘Self-Ghazi’.

    I finally watched the footage. That’s it?

    Frankly, the only thing that struck me was Rousseff air kissing the President.

  • Victor_the_Crab

    What this proves is that right wing commentators, like Mona Charen, are bratty children.

  • Craig Moffitt

    You do realize that this dovetails nicely with the thing that the Republicans hate most about the President representing the nation on the international stage. The fact that he’s the President, representing the international stage.

    Boy, if they react so badly to seeing President Obama shake hands with Raul Castro, it would have been amusing to see the Fox News crowd’s reaction to Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau’s funeral; Fidel Castro was one of the honorary pallbearers present.

    Then again, they’re all convinced Canadians are communists anyway. Well, when they’re not trying to buy access to our sweet, sweet petrochemicals, that is.


    I knew it!!!

    John McCain shakes hand with socialist, marxist, traitor:

    And immediately after shaking hands with Castro, he kisses a woman who is not his wife (twice!) and then hugs a man.

    He’s not just a communist, but also am adulterer and homo!

      But it was perfectly okay–not the least bit gay–when Dubya kissed and held hands with a Saudi prince.

    Very aggravating that this will be a thing for the coming news cycle. But since conservative politicians are still required to bash Cuba on the national campaign trail and pretend the island is still a threat to U.S. or lose a large percentage of their base, the coming overreaction to Obama behaving like an adult at a state funeral it is totally not surprising.

    • Christopher Foxx

      Very aggravating that this will be a thing for the coming news cycle,/i>

      Without a single “journalist” reporting it in “and the latest ridiculous comment on Obama is…” terms.

  • Premie

    He kind of bowed too! What an embarrassment!
