Democrats love using the race card. In fact, President Barack Obama has used it every day of his 8 years in the White House.
With the election over, Obama has now decided to break his silence and he just went after white people living in the South.
The 44th President of America just called millions of Americans bigoted and racists… This is shameful!
As Ben Shapiro explains:
One of the reasons Democrats lost the 2016 election is their leadership’s obvious scorn for working class white people. That scorn was clear all the way back in 2008 when then-Senator Barack Obama spoke in San Francisco and sneered, “You go into these small towns in Pennsylvania and, like a lot of small towns in the Midwest, the jobs have been gone now for 25 years and nothing’s replaced them…And it’s not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy toward people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.”
Those are all the voters Hillary Clinton lost by focusing instead on wooing the glitterati in Hollywood.
Now, Obama’s doubling down. It turns out he doesn’t merely look down on white people in Rust Belt states – he doesn’t think they’re any great shakes in the South, either. “Attitudes about my presidency among whites in northern states are very different from whites in southern states,” Barack Obama said to CNN’s Fareed Zakaria. “So are there folks whose primary concern about me is that I seem foreign, the other, are those who champion the feeding off of bias? Absolutely.”
That’s not accurate. The gap is actually between urban voters (59 percent for Clinton) and rural voters (62 percent for Trump), and along educational lines (voters in the 50 counties with the highest percentage of college degrees voted for Clinton by a margin of 26 percent, voters in the 50 lowest voted for Trump by 31 percent). But Obama’s using the old, hackneyed myth that says that southern white people became Republicans because they’re racist, and that’s why they didn’t vote for him. In fact, after the Civil Rights Act, racist politicians stayed Democrats, and the voting shift toward Republicans in the south began in the 1950s thanks to the economic boom and the Cold War, as Mona Charen points out.
Trump has won the election because of this type of nonsense. And his swearing in on January 20, 2017 can’t come soon enough. It’s time to get rid of Democratic bigotry and make the country great again.
