Obama Fans Racial Strife To Divide America Along Racial Lines

Poll Reveals Obama Has Turned Back Clock On Race Relations
Racial Politics: A new national
survey finds more than 1 in 3 Americans worry a “great deal” about the state of
race relations in America. Anxiety has reached new highs under President Obama.
That’s no coincidence. He’s rubbed racial sores raw.
Barack Obama was
supposed to be a biracial leader who could heal the nation’s racial wounds and
bring the country together. But since he took office, national
tensions over race have gotten worse than ever,with the share of Americans who worry a lot about
race relations soaring to 35% from a bottom of 13% just after Obama took
office, according to a shocking new Gallup poll.
In fact, racial
strife is the highest it’s been in the poll’s 15-year history.
“The rising concern
about race relations as the nation’s first black president completes his last
year in office is a retreat from the optimism that swept the country in the
immediate aftermath of President Obama’s first election win in 2008,” the
pollster said. “A Gallup poll one night after Obama won found that 7 in 10
Americans believed race relations would improve because of his victory.”
Of course, the
opposite occurred. Race relations have sunk, and Obama bears a large share of
In virtually every
policy and crisis, he has divided Americans by race, pitting groups against
each other and even egging on racial violence. He has left race attitudes in
tatters by relentlessly focusing on the problems of race in America.
Obama’s open praise
of Black Lives Matter — a militant cop-hating group whose leaders he invited to
the White House for more than one meeting — is just one of many examples in
which the president deliberately chose to fan the flames of racial anger. Black
Lives Matter has become the most divisive and destructive bully on the block,
now terrifying even schools.
He also sought the
counsel of racial opportunist Rev. Al Sharpton. And in case after case of
police shootings, he took the side of violent thugs over law enforcement.
Obama even lionized a young St. Louis black man who robbed a store and then
beat and tried to disarm a cop who had no choice but to fire in self defense.
Obama has viewed
virtually every event and issue through a racial lens, acting more like a
racial activist than a chief executive.
Obama has branded the
entire criminal justice system racist — cops, courts, municipal judges, even
jurors. He extends the same false accusation to landlords and employers, along
with home lenders, car lenders, payday lenders, credit reporting agencies, debt
collection agencies and on and on.
To hear Obama, even
the most liberal among us are racist. He claims teachers and principals, who
have eagerly embraced multiculturalism to a fault, suddenly are conspiring to
shove misbehaving black students into a “school-to-prison pipeline,” where they
have no choice but to lead a life of crime, thanks to suspensions and
If we didn’t know any
better, we’d think the president suffers from paranoia.
Our own polling
picked up on this trend back in 2014, when an IBD/TIPP survey found that a
stunning 46% of Americans thought race relations worsened under the man who was
supposed to usher in a racially harmonious era, while only 18% said they had
Even the left laments
that Obama’s “vision of post-racial America looks even further away.”
Only, he never really
had such a vision. His racist preacher gave that away long ago.
Obama poisoned race
relations to help sell his “social justice” nostrums, unforgivably doing damage
to trust in future presidential candidates of color.
