president reflects 'the history of America'

Original Article

In a wide-ranging interview, former President Barack Obama reflected on right-wing backlash to the election of the nation’s first Black president that saw the emergence of Donald Trump and acceleration of a “shift” in the Republican Party. “That’s been the history of America, right?” he told Ezra Klein in The New York Times. “There is abolition, and the Civil War, and then there’s backlash, and the rise of the KKK, and then Reconstruction ends, and Jim Crow arises, and then you have a civil rights movement, a modern civil rights movement, and desegregation,” he said. Mr Obama added: “What I

It wasn't the color of your skin, Mr. Obama, it was the content of your ideology.

The so called "Backlash", was because he was not qualified and hates America. His administration showed it but nobody in the democrat party challenged him because he is a protected species..

President Trump accomplished a lot in office, but one of the best things he did was to show us that America could be a great country again. Obama hates this country. People's opinion of his presidency has nothing to do with the color of his skin (He was reelected for a SECOND TERM). People do not want a President who hates their country. Trump wants America to win; Obama wants America to lose. Nothing to do with race.

Yet not one word about the origins of those terrible qualities: the Dimokkkrap party. They killed 600,000 people in a misguided attempt to preserve slavery. They invented jim crow to torment black people and institutionalize racism. They founded the KKK to enforce it. And now they scream accusatorily at everyone else about it. And obama takes their money every single day and says what he’s told. And he could care less about any citizen’s well being, black or white.

Reflect on American History it may occur to you that a black man wouldn't be allowed to vote for a President, let alone be one, if it weren't for the GOP. Freedom for blacks in America is the reason the Republican Party was founded, (a little American History to reflect on).

The old ideologue racialist cannot help himself. Only a half black mutt, he is still Black becausse he sees that without that he is nothing. He is blind to the concept that no one liked him as a person nor did they like his policies. He did nothing positive for the country. But he’ll bear down on only the fact that he was “black”.

I’ve always wondered about Obama’s second electoral win. Despite the msm running cover for him, that administration was embroiled in several ghastly scandals, which just weren’t going anywhere, thank you msm. David axel rod or axelman, whatever his name was, wasn’t just confident in their win, he was downright concrete about it. I was always rather bemused at that attitude until I learned about Dominion voting machines and now I know. They had that system set up for Hillary’s win too, but were so contemptuous of Trump they never even considered activating it. And then he won and their horror and outrage went on a four year tailspin. And to think, if they’d just taken us and Trump more seriously, they could have won that election too.

America elected a gay, half black-half white Marxist Muslim...twice...yet Obama still believes the KKK was founded and supported by the GOP rather than the democrats. Yet we are not the ones who submitted such a poorly done obviously forged birth certificate. We are also not the ones who could not take the bar exam from law school because of all the all the aliases used.

Projection. Obama hates himself because he held the highest position on Earth for eight years and wasn't able to accomplish a dang thing of value. Trump accomplished more for the people of America in his first year than Obama did in eight. The skinny girly man from Kenya couldn't even play golf or ride a bicycle. His "wife" could press more weight with one arm than he could with two. No wonder he is full of hate.

Obama ran on two different party tickets when he was elected to the Illinois legislature: the Democrat ticket and the New Party ticket. The New Party is the nom de guerre of the Socialist Party. The MSM mocked conservatives who dared to say that Obama was a Socialist, but it was demonstrably true. His subsequent actions in the White House confirmed the fact that he is a creature of the far Left. But the Democrat Party and the MSM are obsessed with DNA and view their world through a lens of racialist ideology. Republicans follow the dictates of Martin Luther King and view people by their actions, not their DNA.

Ovomit was truly the first affirmative action president. Totally incompetent for the job. Hired solely because of the color of his skin. Totally over his head the entire time. “There is abolition, and the Civil War, and then there’s backlash, and the rise of the KKK, and then Reconstruction ends, and Jim Crow arises..." Gee, what did all of those things have in common -- that's right, they were done by the Demon-Rats to hurt black people.

Fake revisionist history doesn't count because it is all disinformation. Pres. Obama, the GOP did not, nor ever has, cared about irrelevant physical characteristics, like skin color. It was the Republican Party that was created to stop slavery that Democrats supported and to eventually bring equality to all. Obama, The GOP was against you for your radical leftist ideology and your constant manipulation of the masses with your inflammatory rhetoric. That was the ONLY reason we did not want you to be successful with your radical leftist agenda which went against our Constitution, free-market capitalism, and every good thing our country was founded on. You and the Democrats and leftist media destroyed race relations which were very good until you and your cronies started stirring up anger resentment and hatred. And when you refer to the history of our nation, you need to be honest and tell the truth that it was YOUR Democrat Party that started and comprised the vast majority of the KKK, created Jim Crow laws and poll taxes and have always been responsible for dividing people based on various forms of bigotry. Your Democrat Party fought against and blocked every attempt of the GOP to pass civil rights legislation in all the years since Reconstruction, and the Civil Rights Act only passed in 1963 because men like Sen. Everett Dirksen (R-IL) worked tirelessly with Sen. Hubert Humphrey (D-MN) to get as many Democrats as possible to change their votes and support the bill. But without overwhelming support of the Civil Rights Act by the GOP, the bill would not have passed again. The Democrats have always been the party of bigotry and racism. After the CRA passed, the Democrats strategically recruited, promoted and placed various "minorities" into political and other leadership positions to try to hide their bigoted past, but they chose people who they could control so they could not do any actual good for those minority communities they represented. They were mostly well-paid puppets put in to keep said communities suppressed. After LBJ's policies destoyed most of the once strong black nuclear families, you guys pushed your disinformation campaign projecting your own negative and racist character and deeds on others you consider your enemy (the Republicans) with the help of the radical leftist professors, activists and mainstream media. The biggest lie of the century was the claim that the parties "switched". That never happened. Even government records prove there were no large changes of party affiliation. The truth is out there for anyone to see but you count on the general public being either too lazy or too busy to look for the truth. Your ideological colleagues successfully infiltrated and took over all our major institutions, industries, and largest mega multinational businesses, as well as most other areas of influence so you can continue to control the narrative with your lies. That said, you can go pound sand. You were a terrible executive and a traitor to your country. I say that because of the content of your character and ideology--not because of any physical characteristics.

Jimenez was riding the park's carousel with her 8-year-old niece. That's when she noticed the horse in front of her. "My mouth dropped open when I realize it was a Native American head in a saddle bag," said Jimenez of the carousel. The carousel was made in the 1920s. It was purchased by the City of Thornton from a local store that went out of business. It was moved to Carpenter Park in 2013.

The Biden administration knew the key to a successful Covid vaccination campaign would be reaching the most vulnerable populations. But more than five months in, even a blueprint that’s worked with other ethnic and racial groups isn’t doing enough to win over Black Americans. Less than a quarter of Black Americans had received their first Covid-19 shot as of June 7 based on available federal data, amid a weekslong stagnation that has defied the government’s ramped-up effort to accelerate vaccinations and reach the nation’s most vulnerable communities. The slowdown has put Black Americans behind the pace set over the past

The condition is foundational, generating characteristic ways of being in one’s body, in one’s mind, and in one’s world.
