It’s been too long and I have to admit I miss Obama. I really do. His speeches are so predictable.
X + Racism = Racism Y
Take any radical policy, accuse Americans of racism, and demand that we perfect this wonderful utopia by giving him and his cronies unlimited power. Back at the Rep. John Lewis campaign event (the peasants bury their loved ones via Zoom, Democrat elites get an entire week of campaign events in packed churches that would otherwise be illegal if mere Americans attended them.)
In his touching tribute to that guy whose coffin he and Speaker Pelosi were using as props, Obama called for abolishing the filibuster because… you’ll never guess… really you won’t… just try and guess… it’s racist.
If politicians want to honor John, and I’m so grateful for the legacy of work of all the Congressional leaders who are here, but there’s a better way than a statement calling him a hero. You want to honor John?
What are we doing in John Lewis’ name? Restructuring the political system so it only elects Democrats. Obviously.
By guaranteeing that every American citizen has equal representation in our government, including the American citizens who live in Washington, D.C. and in Puerto Rico
Pretty sure residents of Washington D.C., including a guy named Barry, have representation.
Obama wants the handful of people living in D.C. to get their own two Democrat senators. And he wants the same thing for Puerto Rico. And, if they were going to vote Republican, he’d be calling for them to be nuked and the earth to be salted… for John Lewis.
But if you disagree, you’re a racist.
And if all this takes eliminating the filibuster — another Jim Crow relic…
Obama must really be confident of the Democrats taking the White House and the Senate. And then making sure that Republicans never take them again.
Senator Bernie Sanders had previously opposed eliminating the filibuster, pointing out, rationally, that Republicans would then be able to suppress Democrats if they’re in the majority. But Obama is more radical than Bernie. His vision is based on eliminating the opposition.
This is what the Lincoln Project, the Bulwark, and every so-called conservative pretending that a Biden win and a bunch of Democrat legislative victories won’t fundamentally change the country. It will not only change the country, but do so catastrophically and irreversibly.
Don’t take it from me. Take it from Obama.
