Ezra Klein is many things besides being a shameless leftist ideologue whore. But, a humor expert? Not in a million years on one of Jupiter’s moons. Because a Jovian year is really freaking long – almost 12 of our years. See how explaining that made it so much funnier? Yeah, me neither. But maybe that’s not Ezra’s motivation in explaining the odd nature of President Obama’s jokes at the poorly timed White House Correspondent’s Dinner on Sunday night. It could be that his motivation was just to provide a little verbal aid and comfort to the pathetic failure of the now openly subversive Presidency of Barack Obama, just like the last few hundred times Ezra put something in print. I, finally, may be getting the pattern here.
In this particular Vox explanation, Klein gets right to it:
The joke of President Obama’s performance on Saturday was that he wasn’t joking. Everyone just had to pretend he was…
The tip-off there is, “It’s the right thing to do.” That’s not a joke. That’s Obama’s actual justification for the aggressive executive actions of his second term — “fuck it, it’s the right thing to do.” But the norms of politics are such that he typically has to frame his actions as routine, dull, even necessary. He has to search for precedent and downplay the consequences.
Did you get that? Ezra, our genius boy voxsplainer expert has described for us the current reality: that Obama is not even trying to have a legal Presidency any more. What he’s describing is a total fucking apocalyptic rogue dictator who does what he “thinks is right,” and his only concern is getting away with it. You know, because everything he wants to do is FUCKING ILLEGAL.
Of course, Ezra’s moralization about this is just adorable. He’s so proud of his President being brave enough to do the “right thing.” But no, Ezra, you retarded weasel, none of what Barack has done could be construed as “the right thing.” Maybe you could voxsplain to us sometime about how it’s right to bypass all this nation’s immigration laws and the U.S. Congress in order to force the immigration of millions, granting them illegal benefits, with no rational explanation other than the goal of padding the voter rolls of your own party? How is it right to bypass due process in order to fast-track the economic destruction of the country because of a controversial theory about climate that cannot even be discussed openly for fear of the truth becoming obvious to everyone? How is it right to betray Israel and pander to Iran?
But now that you mention it, Ezra, you morally-damaged, brown-necking charlatan, you know what would be “the right thing” for Obama to do? He could start by canceling appearances at events like the WHCD, which was literally held in the flickering flame light of Baltimore as it burned from riot fires. Then he could GO THERE. Go there and do his fucking job. You know, Ezra, that thing we hired him to do. As our first black President, he’s uniquely qualified to help put out those flames. He could be there right now, pleading with the rioters to stand down.
He knows how to issue “stand down” orders, right? He did it repeatedly and effectively a few years ago in Libya, and God knows it was difficult for him to get the U.S. Marines guarding our assets in Yemen to drop their weapons and flee like little girls. But he succeeded.
So, why not offer to personally address the concerns about police action in Baltimore and elsewhere around the country? And then he could follow up by calling off some of his own federal storm troopers harassing innocent citizens in their quest for the imaginary “domestic terrorist.” Oh, and maybe he could bring himself to condemn a single one of the thousands of acts of Islamist genocide against Christians going on in the World right now? That would be a good start. It might interfere with a round or two of golf, but it would be the fucking right thing to do. Right, Ezra? Even a slimy, thermonuclear hypocrite cockroach like you should be able to see that.
