Hillary Clinton and Obama are well known by the conservative media for their backpedaling and lies.
The latest in the interesting web they weave is their stance on the confederate flag.
Almost everyone knows that Obama is claiming some ‘bold’ (read: faux) ‘ethical’ (read: opportunistic) stance on the flag’s ‘impact’ on black Americans.Interesting, judging from his campaign materials just a few short years ago….
In the wake of the Charleston shooting, and subsequent pictures of the shooter posing with a Confederate flag, Barack Obama this week said that the flag belongs in a museum.
It seems he has changed his tune in the last three years somewhere, however, given that he was using the symbol during his 2012 re-election campaign.
Indeed, Obama had his own Confederate flag campaign badge, which states “Where the confederate flag still flies, we have built a powerful coalition of African Americans and white Americans.”
The quote was taken from Obama’s racially heated speech in 2008, during which he also praised his mentor and former pastor – the controversial Reverend Wright.
Obama was not alone in using the symbol of the Confederate flag, synonymous with the South, to solicit political support.
What a greedy, opportunistic jerks both of them are. I cannot believe, even after all the lies that we have been forced to endure, that anyone would be so duplicitous. It sickens me to think that after Obama we might be stuck with another lying cheat like Hillary. All that aside, it’s a flag. Can we just stop already? Thanks.
