In a podcast with his former senior advisor David Axelrod, President Obama took aim at white Southern voters for contributing to Donald Trump’s landslide victory, claiming racism is to blame.
“So part of the challenge for Democrats and progressives generally is that if we cannot compete in rural areas, in rural states,” said Obama, “if we can’t find some way to break through what is a complicated history in the South and start winning races there and winning back Southern white voters without betraying our commitment to civil rights and diversity — if we can do those things, then we can win elections.”
According to the Conservative Tribune, this rhetoric did not sit well with Fox News fill-in host Ed Henry, who asked, “In explaining why Donald Trump won, why does he have to inject race?”
Barack Obama is well known for his feelings about American Exceptionalism. He wanted to “change” America because he has deep running feelings that white America has been unfair to women and minorities, as well as the rest of the world.
He sat in church for 2 decades listening to Jeremiah Wright defame the evils of white America.
It would be interesting to hear what he really thinks. I would imagine it would be rather foul as what we have heard is insane.
Obama has benefited better than most from the blessings of living in this great nation. He is wealthy and famous. He has been the leader of the free world for almost a decade. The Obamas have lived a lifestyle of the rich and famous most can only dream about.
Yet, his mantra remains the same: If you are black in America, you will never have a chance.
He hasn’t been a President of hope. He has been a president of dispair. He has continued to tell the black community that without government intervention they will never make it.
On top of everything, in order to redistribute the wealth, he has slowed the economy to a crawl. He has persecuted the black community to record highs in joblessness and record lows of home ownership.
