Vladimir Putin is nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize.
The guy who’s been oppressing his own citizens based on their sexuality and who’s been manipulating the rest to silence, attack, and kill the LGBT in Russia is in the running to receive the Nobel Peace Prize.
At least when Obama won the prize he didn’t violate anyone’s basic human rights.
He was killing people with drones. More so innocent people, with bombing strikes on funerals and using double-strikes.(aka after first strike when people go to collect the bodies, another strike happens)\

Bumping up the drone program, and having more strikes put in than Bush ever did.
He was still having Guantanamo bay operating, a place meant to oppress others on claims without due trial, a place where you can be simply sent. It is not a place you are sent to after trial.
As well as maintaining the operation of two oppressive regimes, Iraq and Afghanistan, circumventing the Democratic process, supporting a military-operated government in Honduras and maintaining the oppressive embargo on several states that need not be there.
Does this excuse or “justify” what Putin has done? No, not at all. But now you’re just basically lying about what Obama has done as president, he was daily violating people’s rights and will continue to do so as Bush did, as Clinton did, as anyone other President who will come or has came into office. It is an inevitable reality that it will happen.
In all irony of this statement - Putin did more to try and guarantee peace in Syria while Obama for war and intervention on faulty evidence that was not even given at all.
