Obama in Spain: ‘We’re seeing a global rise in nationalism’

Thanks to the Internet, many voters have escaped the controlled media globalist narrative. They are no longer being informed by the voices of mainstream media darlings such as Barack Obama.

    Former US President Obama complained on Friday of “a rise in nationalism” and warned that new media would accelerate social divisions. “We see a rise in nationalism” Obama told his audience in Madrid, Spain.

    “Today because of the internet, and because of the multiplicity of media what we see more and more is that we don’t agree on the same reality.”

    The former Democrat president highlighted in particular the US Fox News network. “If you watch Fox News you see a different reality than if you read the New York Times, he said.

    The world needs to carefully consider how to use the new technology to ensure that it “does not accelerate division”, he added, hinting at open borders and unchallenged immigration.

    “We’re in a difficult time, politically, socially … people feel very anxious,” Obama said.

    “Change is happening very quickly. People are wondering can I adapt to these changes? People are fearful,” the former president told an audience of 2 000 people at a conference in Madrid on technology.

    Difference “has been “exploited by some forces internationally”, which “feed their biases” he said.

    The solution, according to Obama, is to train young people “to think differently” essentially suggesting brainwashing people into following a globalist agenda.

    Spain’s new Socialist government has meanwhile agreed to offer free reproductive treatment to lesbians and single women, something the former conservative administration stopped for those groups in 2014. “Today the misogyny is over,” state secretary for equality Soledad Murillo tweeted.

    The announcement coincided with LGBTI pride celebrations in Madrid, the measure will come into effect in January 2019, the new Socialist government spokeswoman Isabel Celaa said.

    So far, the new Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez has allowed two migrant rescue boats that were refused port by neighbouring countries and named a female-dominated cabinet.

    Sanchez has also pledged to train judges in gender issues.
