Former President Barack Obama is back to lecture Americans, particularly Republican voters, about everything they’re doing wrong.
Obama mocked Republicans for making a big deal about Critical Race Theory during an interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper.
Obama jokingly said, “who knew the biggest threat to our republic was Critical Race Theory.”

But see, it is a big deal, and the fact that Obama derides Republicans for denouncing a racist ideology is troubling.
Racism is not unique to white people. Racism is racism, regardless of what color the racist is. Being racist against white people is still racism.
Proponents of CRT single out white people as the root of all evil in the country and the world at large. They argue that America is systemically racist and that white people are inherently bigoted and privileged simply by being born into their specific race.
And Obama, a black man that was elected twice to the presidency, buys into Critical Race Theory.
A country that made it possible for him to live out his wildest dreams is racist, according to him.
If America is racist towards minorities, its not very good at the whole racism thing.
I am not sure if Obama realizes this, but there were tens of millions of white people who voted for him.
But America is still racist, gang. You can believe it because Obama says so.
Obama wasn’t done…because sadly he never is.
He went on to predictably take a shot at former President Trump, who he says played on the supposed racial fears of white Americans.
Obama claimed, “millions of Americans spooked by a Black man in the White House, he [Trump] promised an elixir for their racial anxiety.”
And then Obama went on to randomly accuse former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin of stoking racial tensions all the way back in 2008 when the late John McCain tapped the former Alaska governor to be his running mate.’
He wrote in his book that “Through Palin it seemed as if the dark spirits that had long been lurking on the edges of the modern Republican Party… were finding their way to center stage.”
Dark spirits? What is he even talking about? And how does this have anything to do with Sarah Palin? She is no longer involved in national politics. Maybe his feelings are still hurt be Palin having the gall to criticize him during the 2008 campaign.
If that is the case, Obama has an even more fragile ego than it appears.
But, hey, gang, Trump is the only president to have an ego…or so we have been told by the Left.
The obsession by Democrats to tie all of America’s supposed problems and “inequities” back to slavery and Jim Crow is built on a false premise.
There are no laws on the books that I am aware of that openly prohibit minorities from accomplishing their goals in life or bar them from participating in the democratic process.
This “through-line” narrative of American racism isn’t true. Slavery ended in 1865, and Jim Crow ended in the mid-1960s. We’ve improved by leaps and bounds since then, and things were only getting better until recently.
But that hasn’t stopped Democrats like Barack Obama from continuing to distort American history for their own ends.
Like always, Obama won’t let facts get in the way of his narrative, and he likely never will change his ways.
