While in Lagos, Nigeria, President Barack Obama spoke at a town hall meeting. In this clip, he’s asked two questions by a female audience member. The first has to do with maximizing human capital in the country. The second has to do with the rise of Boko Haram, an Islamic terrorist group in Nigeria. To avoid falling asleep during his answer to the first question so you don’t miss his answer to the second question, just fast forward to the 6:05 mark, when Obama addresses the question about terrorism.
Note that he says, “Now, with respect to the ‘so called’ War on Terror…” while flashing his patented, subtle, middle finger salute. One would think that, even if this is a tick / bad habit, his handlers would have coached him out of it a long time ago.
After he displays that middle finger, Obama blames Boko Haram’s success in slaughtering people, on the government of Nigeria.
Got Islamophobia, Mr. President?
Incidentally, the subtle use of the middle finger when angry with the subject matter was also used by Obama’s ideological hero, Saul Alinsky. Here is a screen shot from a 1967 documentary, during which, Alinsky became agitated during a debate and waved his middle finger at the guy with whom he disagreed:
**UPDATE on August 9, 2013**
The middle finger strikes again. At today’s press conference, NBC’s Chuck Todd made a quip to Obama about how the president didn’t answer a previous question. Barack responded with his patented Alinsky-esque middle finger technique.
Can it be anymore obvious? It’s truly amazing how the liberal media continues to suck up to a guy so willing to flip them off.
