Barack Obama and his Democrat allies think their time is now.
That’s why Obama made a renewed push to attack President Trump.
But that all backfired when Barack Obama just destroyed himself with one careless on-camera confession.
Barack Obama’s preferred method of communication, for the time being, is delivering commencement addresses.
Obama delivered yet another political sermon dressed up as a speech to the graduating class of 2020.
Democrats know Joe Biden has an enthusiasm problem with young voters.
Other than Bernie Sanders, Barack Obama is the best pitchman the Democrats have to sell young voters on turning out.
In his speech, Obama implored the class of 2020 to remain active and engaged.
“You don’t always need hope when everything’s fine,” Obama told the graduates. “It’s when things seem darkest, that’s when you need it the most.”
President Obama begged young voters to take action, claiming now is a national emergency.
“Hope is not a lottery ticket,” the former President added. “It’s a hammer for us to use in a national emergency, to break the glass, sound the alarm, and sprint into action. That’s what hope is.”
Obama then praised the riots that sprung up as a justified reaction because Obama outrageously claimed America was a systemically racist nation.
“[T]he protests in response to the killing of George Floyd, and Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery, and Nina Pop aren’t simply a reaction to those particular tragedies, as heartbreaking as they are,” Obama added. “They speak to decades’ worth of anguish and frustration over unequal treatment and a failure to reform police practices and the broader criminal justice system.”
Obama stated the coronavirus was no longer the defining challenge facing Americans and instead Obama argued citizens needed to work toward undoing the racist bias embedded in American institutions.
“The challenges we face go beyond a virus,” Obama declared. “The old normal wasn’t good enough. It wasn’t working that well.”
Obama doubled down on the idea that the anti-police mobs out in the streets had no other choice because they suffered “decades’ worth of anguish and frustration.”
But this is where Obama lost the plot.
Obama served as President from 2009 to 2017.
And in those eight years, Obama did nothing to bridge the country’s racial divide.
Obama attacked police from his earliest days in office, claiming officers “acted stupidly” when police responded to a call and arrested Harvard Professor Henry Gates at his house.
At a funeral service for five Dallas police officers murdered by a black nationalist, Obama did not condemn the racism that fueled the killer’s murderous rage.
Instead, Obama attacked the police.
Obama also tried to stoke racial tensions when he embraced the controversial Black Lives Matter movement following riots in Ferguson and Baltimore.
Obama tried to take the heat off himself not addressing any of these issues by claiming it was really the fault of the graduates for not taking the initiative to tear down America on their own and not wait for someone like Obama to give them the order.
“America changed, has always changed because young people dared to hope,” Obama concluded. “Democracy isn’t about relying on some charismatic leader to make changes from on high.”
Far from trying to tamp down the tensions in America right now, Barack Obama wants to inflame them.
That’s because Democrats think chaos in the streets and the public feeling as if minority groups are under siege in America are the key to turning out voters to defeat Donald Trump.
