Once again, Barack Obama PROVES he was and still is the most divisive president in the history of the United States.
The last shred of respect conservatives might have had for him—which wasn’t much to begin with—just went out the window with his attempt to politicize the weekend shootings in El Paso and Dayton.
His public response to the shooting was nothing more than a poorly-veiled attack on our president…
And it may be the most divisive thing he’s ever written.
As a former president, he SHOULD have expressed his condolences…
It would be heartless and irresponsible for any former president to NOT acknowledge a national tragedy of this magnitude…
However, what his response SHOULD do is help unite the country. He should have used his position to call for solidarity and peace – but he didn’t. He just offered more pain and more division.
The entire letter is a political tool… except for the VERY first sentence.
The Most Divisive Letter From The Most Divisive President EVER
The very first sentence is the ONLY thing that could be considered NON-political. He expresses his and Michelle’s grief for the families of the two cities affected by the mass shootings – but that is the end of his compassion. Everything after that is absolute divisive DRIVEL.
The first section of his letter is his political attack on the Second Amendment…
“Every time this happens, we’re told that tougher gun laws won’t stop all murders; that they won’t stop every deranged individual from getting a weapon and shooting innocent people in public areas. But the evidence shows that they can stop some killings.”
Oh, there’s evidence, Barry? Where? Where is this evidence? Australia? Where gun crime SOARED after the ban? Sure, there were fewer mass shootings but MORE gun crimes. Is that the tradeoff you’re willing to go for? Because things could turn deadlier with stricter gun laws – as criminals and the criminally insane alike care NOTHING about gun laws.
The second section is a representation of his own brand of divisiveness where he attacks white America.
“Second, the motivations behind these shootings may not yet be fully known, there are indications that the El Paso shooting follows a dangerous trend: troubled individuals who embrace racist ideologies and see themselves obligated to act violently to preserve white supremacy.”
Ok, you’re right, Barry, the El Paso shooter was a radicalized white supremacist…
But the Dayton shooter was a leftist who supported socialism, Bernie, Fauxcahontas, and ANTIFA – what’s your answer to that one? Was he radicalized by ANTIFA? Is that what you’re saying? Because if it’s good for the goose, it’s good for the gander…
But way to ignore that fact, Barry.
“Dear Donald… F**K YOU. Signed, Barack Obama”
And finally, the entire last part (and the biggest section) is nothing more than Obama’s “f**k you” to Donald Trump.
“We should soundly reject language coming out of the mouths of our leaders that feeds the climate of fear and hatred or normalizes racist sentiments; leaders who demonize those who don’t look like us, or suggest that other people, including immigrants, threaten our way of life, or refer to other people as sub-human, or imply that America belongs to just one certain type of people.”
That was just TERRIBLE. We all know what “leader” he’s talking about – his language is not only an attack – it’s deceitful, disgusting, and disrespectful.
He just revealed an inner hatred towards Trump that we knew he had but he was always careful of hiding.
He goes on to name all these racial cleansing events such as the Balkans, Rwanda, and the Holocaust in a feeble attempt to get Americans to believe that is where Trump is headed.
Again, the entire letter is an attack. An attack on the Constitution, an attack on white Americans, and an attack on President Trump.
It’s so divisive it seems like there needs to be another term for it.
While we should be able to expect better from a former president…
Divisiveness like this has become the norm.
