As rioters, dammit, I meant ‘Peaceful Protesters‘ set fire to America, Barack Obama screamed ‘Orange Man Bad…Elect More Democrats’ while completely ignoring the fact that he was our country’s first African-American president.
So while spinning his revisionist history, while blaming President Donald Trump, and Republicans for the racial tensions plaguing America at the moment.
The Messiah had eight long years to do something about race relations, and now he claiming that the solution is to elect more Democrats? Where did Obama get this idiocy? From watching a Chick-fil-A Way commercial?
Barack Obama on Monday offered his thoughts on the current chaos, in a Medium post urging people not to excuse or rationalize the violence.
Of course, just like a ‘Do as I say, not as I do’ Democrat, Obama proceeds to do just that.
Obama started discussing how to make this moment a “turning point” to bring about “real change” going forward.
Taking his cues from the media, Obama proclaimed the protests across the country have been overwhelmingly peaceful. Except for all that looting, violence, and burning down of cities, other than that, it’s been a friggin 1960s love-feast.
Obama then went on to whine that the black community had a “genuine and legitimate frustration over a decades-long failure to reform police practices and the broader criminal justice system.”
Of course, he left out the part about his former Vice-President was the one that wrote the bill that targeted the black community and essentially created the whole street to prison pipeline.
He also urged Americans to fight for a president, Congress, Justice Department and federal judges that “actually recognize the ongoing, corrosive role that racism plays in our society and want to do something about it,” but noted that state and local offices matter most when it comes to police reform.
In short, Obama declared ‘From your local town council to the White House, vote Democrat for real change.
“If we want our criminal justice system, and American society at large, to operate on a higher ethical code, then we have to model that code ourselves,” the former president writes.
The problem with Obama’s message is that it brazenly ignores the fact that he was the president for eight years, with full control of those levers of power.
Yet somehow the greatest achievements of the Obama Era – Obamacare, Obergefell, DACA, or pushes for transgender rights and Title IX “campus rape culture” rules, In other words, Obama checked off every other identity box except the one marked “Blacks.”
Shortly after Joe Biden, and Congressional Democrats passed his 1994 Black incarceration bill, which was signed into law by, Color Me Shocked, Democrat Bill Clinton. Liberal leftists cried out for a criminal justice reform bill.
Surely after the pandering Democrats screamed (every 4-years) that we needed to pass a criminal justice reform bill, it was the Obama administration that passed one, right?
Nope. It was that racist Orange Man occupying the White House, Donald J. Trump who has signed The First Step Act into law.
Trump’s Criminal Justice Reform bill gave relief to federal inmates, the majority of whom were African-American, from harsh mandatory sentences imposed during the Clinton era.
Well, it was definitely Trump who presided over the killings of Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown, Freddie Gray, Tamir Rice, Laquan McDonald, Eric Garner… and fueled racial anger that set Ferguson, Baltimore, Cleveland, Chicago, and New York on fire in the aftermath? Erm, no, wrong again.
How can the Obama/Clinton decree that the solution to all of this is to VOTE! — and VOTE BLUE ? — be reconciled with the fact that many of the police forces engaging in brutality, starting with Minneapolis, are in places with Democratic Mayors, Governors, and City Councils?

Elect More Democrats? Based On Your Record, I Don’t Think So
In Minnesota, where George Floyd was horrifically murdered last Monday, State, City, and a majority of local leaders are all Democrats.
And lest we forget George Floyd was murdered in Minneapolis Minnesota’s 5th district, whose House of Representative is none other than Ilhan Omar.
The same can be said for the Democrats who’ve been in charge, in some cases for generations, in many of the major cities currently being set on fire and looted by angry mobs.
So it’s simply ludicrous for Obama to urged people to elect more Democrats since the cities with the most angered black communities because from New York City, to Philadelphia to Chicago to Los Angeles, the Delusional Dimwits are already in office.
And of course, the Coronavirus pandemic really showed the type of leadership the Democrats have become infamous for. Screwing it all up, and then blaming White Nationalist Republicans, more specifically, Donald John Trump.
The first thing Democrats did when the lockdown began was empty out the jails – while threatening to lock up otherwise law-abiding citizens who dared to disobey their draconian Covid-19 lockdowns.
Which is almost perfect hypocrite Democrat fashion, they’ve completely forgotten once the Joe Biden rally’s started taking place across America.
The next step in their COVID-19 response was to send infected elderly Americans back to their nursing homes. That little bit of dimwitted Democrat brilliance only resulted in thousands of our ‘Greatest Generation’ dying needlessly.
So the idea of electing Democrats is as moronic as all the times Obama learned of an emergency, or one of his many scandals was by reading the morning paper.
I used to quip the most important person in the Obama administration was ‘Johnny the paperboy,’ because without little Johnny Obama would be an even more clueless President than he already was.
What is most amazing is the fact that while Obama is regurgitating the same pandering talking points that got him elected President in 2008.
The city Chicago where Obama called home for years, and also got his start in politics, has been a shooting gallery for decades.
While black communities are looting, pillaging, and burning because they’re outraged that white America acts as if the death of an African-American is seemingly worthless.
In the midst of a pandemic, and protest against the horrific killing of a black man. On Monday, a Chicago Sun-Times headline screamed ‘82 shot, 19 fatally, over Chicago’s most violent weekend of 2020‘
Do these lives matter to Obama? Seems to me the only thing Obama’s been doing over the past 3+ years is house hunting for beachfront property.
So if Obama is as concerned about his people as he claims, and the supposed racism they live with…Then maybe he could have championed that cause.
Because as history has proven, Obama certainly didn’t do it when he was occupying the oval office, and the Democratic party had full control of both the House and Senate for nearly the first two-years Obama was POTUS.
As far as Obama suggesting America needs to elect more Democrats.
I say, thanks, Obama… But no thanks.
