The Dis-Uniter In Chief Or How To Destroy Race Relations In 8 Short Years
President Barack Obama marketed himself to the American people as penicillin to
the nation’s racial woes. A vote for Obama was a vote for unity! How could you
vote against that?
And so, a self-serving slice of the electorate indulged their virtuous exigencies,
casting their ballot for what they perceived to be “something bigger.” Obama’s
gleeful cry for “hope and change.”
Prior to the Obama presidency, President George W. Bush united Americans as…
Americans through 9/11. He kept us safe, and unapologetically defended our
common values of freedom and self-governance. But according to our national
media, race relations prior to Obama’s presidency were like our healthcare
system. Worse than Zimbabwe’s.
How successful was President Obama in mending these supposedly broken
bonds? Here’s a comprehensive timeline of all the racial healing in the past
President Obama’s first headline hobnob with race-in-America dates back to
the early days of his presidency. In 2009, Harvard professor Henry Louis Gates arrived home to find his front door lock jammed. He opted to force his
way in through the back door. Worried neighbors weren’t sure what was
happening, and in good faith alerted the police.
Upon arrival, the officers – one of whom was black – asked Gates for ID, to
which Gates then infuriatingly exploded, accusing the officers of racial profiling.
“This is what it means to be black in America! ... Do you even know how many
graduate degrees I have! Do you know who you’re dealing with here!? ... I’m
a professor at Harvard. CAN YOU EVEN SPELL HARVARD?”
The befuddled, browbeaten officer arrested Gates on charges of disorderly
conduct for his shrieking tirade.
The newly elected President disregarded the facts, kicking off what would be
a long 8 years of poisonous rhetoric aimed at law enforcement. Joining the
Cambridge coterie in haranguing the white working-class officer, Obama said: “he acted stupidly.”
Fast forward three years, and the glare of the national spotlight is on Sanford,
Florida. In February of 2012, Hispanic-American George Zimmerman – leader
of his community’s neighborhood watch – saw a young black man, Trayvon Martin, lurking around his community. Zimmerman called the police, reporting
that the man appeared to be on drugs (autopsy confirmed this) and was urinating
in front of a house.
After being instructed not to pursue the suspect, Zimmerman hung up. The
initial confrontation between the two remains a mystery. However, all the
available evidence aligned with Zimmerman's claim that Martin attacked him,
knocking him to the ground. Jumping on top of him, Martin allegedly bega
beating Zimmerman, pounding his head into the pavement. Zimmerman
subsequently reached for his gun, and shot Martin, killing him.
America’s racial-healer-in-chief Barack Obama responded to the incident,
saying “if I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon.” Busy acting as the pillars
for Obama’s skewed racial narrative, the media failed to ask why exactly the
President’s son would be high, lurking around neighborhoods and beating
heads onto pavements.
When Zimmerman was acquitted of all charges, riots broke out across the
country. Police cars were smashed and stomped on; windows were broken.
A random white guy was robbed, the assailants yelling “this is for Trayvon!”
In November 2013, police officers shot and killed 16-year-old black teenager Kimani Gray in Brooklyn, New York. After observing suspicious behavior,
the officers approached Gray, and he responded by drawing a firearm,
pointing it squarely at the officers. (Not a good idea).
Despite the damning evidence that the officers were fully justified in shooting
the suspect, riots ensued. Between 60 and 100 people took to the street
s looting shops and smashing windows, allegedly chanting “NYPD, KKK,
how many kids did you kill today”. Really all the hallmarks of a post-racial
The next big moment for Obama’s post-racial era came in July of 2014. In
a truly unfortunate incident, 43-year-old Eric Garner died after being placed
under arrest by police officers. At a whopping 400 hundred pounds, Garner
had a bevy of preexisting health conditions. After Garner resisted arrest, the
officer – following standard protocol – administered a submission hold. This
lead to Garner famously saying “I can’t breathe” – this line was like caviar to
the fervid imaginations of liberal pundits. The autopsy showed however that
Garner didn’t die of suffocation. The submission likely triggered Garner’s
preexisting health conditions, killing him.
What should have led to a bipartisan effort to strike down useless laws
prohibiting the sales of untaxed cigarettes, instead lead to violent race riots
fueled by Obama’s mythical racist conspiracy against black Americans. He
said, "And right now, unfortunately, we are seeing too many instances where people just do not have confidence that folks are being treated fairly. And in some cases, those may be misperceptions; but in some cases, that’s a reality.”
Next up is Ferguson, Missouri. August 2014. A name now synonymous
with “black lives matter”. Eighteen-year-old black man Michael Brown robbed
a convenience store. When pulled over by officer Darren Wilson, Brown
tried to grab the officer’s gun. After it went off, Brown retreated until the officer
exited his vehicle. At that point, Brown sprinted towards the officer, ignoring
repeated pleas to stop. Officer Wilson shot Michael Brown, killing him. This
was fully justified by all accounts, and Darren Wilson was fully acquitted
by a grand jury. Nonetheless, this didn’t stop our divider-in-chief from
coming out and exclaiming that the shooting “exposed the racial divide
in the American justice system that stains the heart of black children.” Piling
on, the national media took the contradicting reports of witnesses, with
CNN hosts reporting that Brown had his hands up, exclaiming “don’t
shoot”. This was a lie.
This led to protests lasting weeks, with looting and riots galore. A state
of emergency was declared in Missouri. Had enough racial healing yet?
Obama’s reverse Midas-touch continued working its magic through 2015
when the national spotlight turned to Baltimore. After he was arrested for
carrying an illegal switchblade,Freddie Graydied in the back of a police
van as a result of spinal cord injuries. Despite the lack of evidence, liberals
claimed Gray’s death to be a result of racism in policing. Adding fuel to the
fire, racial-healing-monk Barack Obama stated, “This has been going on for a long time, this is not new, and we shouldn’t pretend that it’s new.”
Riots exploded across Baltimore, engulfing cars, businesses, and shops.
A CVS Pharmacy was burned down, while the arsonists attacked firefighters
trying to put the fire out.
Meanwhile, Baltimore’s Democrat mayor dumped a gallon of gasoline on the
racial tensions, saying that she wanted to give space to those “who wished
In July of 2016, Philando Castile was driving with his girlfriend. Castile was
pulled over by Jeronimo Yanez (A Chinese police officer). The vagaries
of the traffic stop are unclear, but video shot after the altercation shows
the officer shot and killed Castile.
Great-racial-healing-master Barack Obama was in Warsaw for a NATO summit
at the time. Refusing to pass up an opportunity to chide America in a foreign
nation, he addressed the shooting, “When incidents like this occur, there’s a big chunk of our citizenry that feels as if, because of the color of their skin, they are not being treated the same, and that hurts, and that should trouble all of us.”
Obama’s warm embrace of this fictional reality has demonstrably given
leeway to radical race-baiters looking to riot and wreak havoc. Protests –
albeit initially non-violent – quickly escalated into cinder blocks and fireworks
tossed at police officers.
Despite Obama’s claims of unjust "systemic racism," the criminal justice
system did its job. The officer responsible for the shooting was charged
with second-degree manslaughter. The damage, however, was already
done. Private property had been destroyed, businesses driven out, and
tribal divisions intensified.
In Milwaukee August 2016, 23-year-old black male Sylville Smith
was shot and killed by a black police officer. Exact details of the situation
were still unclear at the time the event was reported. The suspect may have been threatening the officer with a firearm. Nonetheless, this
was held up by the liberal Obama coalition as another example of
Racial agitators took to the streets, rioting for two nights. They set private
property, businesses, and cars aflame. Police cars were destroyed and
vandalized as the demonstrators tossed bricks through windshields.
In December of the same year, the officer who shot Smith was charged
with homicide. It wasn’t because the riots and unrest had pressured the
criminal justice system to abnegate their usual racist selves. The justice
So, here we are. Eight years of racial healing under Barrack Obama’s leftist
ideology and the country is far more divided than ever.
Racial riots and hostile tribal divisions weren’t nearly as common-occurring
under past presidential administrations in recent history. What happened?
Police activity or the criminal justice system didn’t suddenly begin to
wantonly target black people as Obama was sworn into office.
At every opportunity to quash racial division, Obama's rhetoric instead
amplified it. For eight years he continuously peddled the notion that
America is a deeply racist, unjust vessel of oppression. While he would
at times admit that some progress had been made in race relations,
he consistently returned to his rhetoric about a country plagued by
"systemic racism." And so, race relations in America changed to
reflect the vision Obama promulgated for 8 years. The media beloved
acial unifier, Barack Obama presided over the deterioration of race
relations in America. If you like your race relations, you’ll get to keep
your race relations.
