FLASHBACK: Obama called this African nation a “sh*t show”

January 12, 2018

by Stephen Dietrich, Associate Publisher

President Donald Trump allegedly referred to some poor African nations as “sh*tholes” on Thursday — and in response, the mainstream media has whipped itself into a frenzy.

“Unpresidential!” cable news hosts have cried. “Racist,” “bigoted,” “impeachable!” liberal journalists have screamed.

So, where was this hysterical outrage when former President Barack Obama referred to one third-world African nation as a “sh*t show”?

Talking to The Atlantic in 2016, Obama talked about the degrading situation in Libya and blamed U.S. allies for sad state of affairs.

Obama called Libya a “mess” — and later explained that he specifically meant it had become a “sh*t show” that was too caught up in African tribalism for their own good.

“Mess is the president’s diplomatic term; privately, he calls Libya a ‘$#@% show,’ in part because it’s subsequently become an ISIS haven — one that he has already targeted with air strikes,” Jeffrey Goldberg reported in the Apr. 2016 edition of Atlantic Magazine. “It became a $#@% show, Obama believes, for reasons that had less to do with American incompetence than with the passivity of America’s allies and with the obdurate power of tribalism.”

This wasn’t some obscure statement that we’ve cherry-picked, either.

This was The Atlantic’s cover story for the month, and was widely covered in the British press and some American outlets because Obama placed the blame squarely at the feet of the United Kingdom’s former Prime Minister David Cameron. That very same month, The Horn News reported that Obama’s actions in Libya had led to the rebirth of the African slave trade.

So… where was the outrage? Where was the angry accusations of racism because Obama had turned a blind eye to the enslavement of thousands of Africans? Where was the media’s fury that he’d dismissed a country where the African slave trade was flourishing as nothing but a “sh*t show” and that he blamed both American allies and African “tribalism” for the problem?

I’ll give you a hint: There was no outrage. Zero. None.

The silence from the left on Obama’s comments was deafening — and the media’s uneven response is undeniable proof that they’ve lost all credibility.

Imagine if Trump did the same? For just a moment, envision the response if Trump publicly blamed our allies and African tribalism for the rebirth of the black slave trade in a “sh*t show” of a country?

There’d be riots in the streets!

Democrats have stoked the flames of anger against Trump, too.

For example, Rep. Elijah Cummings tweeted —

So lets be fair. How did Cummings react to Obama calling a third-world country a “sh*t show” on Twitter?

He never once mentioned it.

How convenient.

The difference between "$#@% show", meaning the temporary situation in Libya, and "$#@% hole", meaning the permanent status of the entire country, escapes Cons.

So does the difference between "privately" and "in a meeting". Too complicated for 'em, I guess.

And, of course, the difference between tRump's actual quoted words, and Goldberg's paraphrasing of Obama's, is far too subtle for Rightie knuckle draggers determined at all costs to defend the Orange Boor.

Even as a deflection, this was a feeble attempt, and a complete flop.

It is different. He didn't call the country a "$#@% hole." He called the conditions in the country after the fall of Gaddafi a "mess." One guy, Goldberg, claims he used "$#@% show." Even if he did, at least he has the sense to use it in private.

“So we actually executed this plan as well as I could have expected: We got a UN mandate, we built a coalition, it cost us $1 billion—which, when it comes to military operations, is very cheap. We averted large-scale civilian casualties, we prevented what almost surely would have been a prolonged and bloody civil conflict. And despite all that, Libya is a mess.”

Mess is the president’s diplomatic term; privately, he calls Libya a “$#@% show,” in part because it’s subsequently become an isis haven—one that he has already targeted with air strikes. It became a $#@% show, Obama believes, for reasons that had less to do with American incompetence than with the passivity of America’s allies and with the obdurate power of tribalism.

Kind of like Haiti after the hurricane. Obama's apologists hard at work.
