Obama: There are too many leaders who claim solidarity with Madiba’s struggle for freedom, but do not tolerate dissent from their own people—

That’s a wonderful sentiment, of course. Was President Obama aiming the remark at Castro?
But wait a tic: Um, did he forget that whole “dissent is no longer patriotic” thing? Because, racist.
Who knew Obama had such a sense of humor? … Leaders must tolerate dissent… Good one, Chief… ㅠㅠ—

Heh. Was it a joke or just a staggering lack of self-awareness once again?

By allowing dissent, does Obama mean he forgot about the IRS investigating conservatives?—
