Obama used Ferguson in his UN speech as a foil to bash America:
I realize that America’s critics will be quick to point out that at times we too have failed to live up to our ideals; that America has plenty of problems within our own borders. This is true. In a summer marked by instability in the Middle East and Eastern Europe, I know the world also took notice of the small American city of Ferguson, Missouri – where a young man was killed, and a community was divided. So yes, we have our own racial and ethnic tensions. And like every country, we continually wrestle with how to reconcile the vast changes wrought by globalization and greater diversity with the traditions that we hold dear.
America is the greatest nation on the earth and that’s what Obama should be proclaiming. Instead he uses this Ferguson crap to suggest that America isn’t really any better than any other place in the world, you know, because we have our own problems.
It’s just part of Obama’s bash America campaign.
