Obama’s attack on Hispanic Voters and defense of Reverend Jeremiah Wright and Rev Raphael Warnock reflects on his own bad character
“Former President Barack Obama accused Hispanic voters of being bigots, claiming that they ignored the current administration’s “racist” immigration policies to vote for Donald Trump because “he supports their views on gay marriage.”
‘People were surprised about a lot of Hispanic folks who voted for Trump,’ Obama said on The Breakfast Club podcast Wednesday. ‘But there’s a lot of evangelical Hispanics who, you know, the fact that Trump says racist things about Mexicans, or puts detainees [and] undocumented workers in cages [The cages were built during the Obama Administration], they think that’s less important than the fact that he supports their views on gay marriage or abortion,’” the federalist reports.
The Federalist continues, “Gay marriage was also not a topic highlighted or heavily paraded by the president in campaign advertisements or speech, reinforcing the idea that LGBTQ+ issues were not a top priority or focused for his campaign or his voters. Unlike Obama, Trump was actually the first president who openly supported gay marriage.
Instead, Hispanic voters showed concern for things like the economy, COVID-19, and violent crime, all of which Trump heavily focused on in his re-election campaign, promising more jobs, faster vaccine development, and calling for law and order.”
“Pres. Obama is right. It is wrong for a President to use divisive language, such as 1. Call all opponents of same-sex marriage bigots 2. Call the Pro-Life movement a “War on Women” 3. Call all immigration enforcement advocates racists 4. Call the GOP the enemy of Hispanics.”
Obama’s divisive perspective on racism, in general, reflects on his own viable racism. He is an advocate for the “Reverend Jeremiah Wright, the man who infamously said that “America’s chickens are coming home to roost” in response to the 9/11 massacre, is a “supremely gifted preacher” according to former President Barack Obama, the Daily Wire reported.
Obama continued, “In national politics if you can take out a bunch of sound bites that say ‘God damn America,’ even if the context of it is prophetic and biblical and he’s trying to describe you know how somebody might feel – he wasn’t promoting the notion that God was damning America,” Obama said.
“He was making a point that if you looked at slavery and discrimination, you could see the conclusion of people feeling that there was not an alignment with Christian values and America. But if you see a two-minute sound bite, trying to explain that is too complicated.”
Obama’s seemingly unfettered espousal and frustrating support of Wright’s obviously prejudicial platform draws into question his own racial perspectives. Senator Rubio’s comments are not only spot-on, but they also guide any analysis of Obama’s true feelings about racism; how can Obama attack racism when he supports Wright’s comments and those made by Raphael Warnock, a candidate for the Georgia Senate?
“Rev. Raphael Warnock, the Democratic Senate candidate who on Tuesday advanced to a January runoff in Georgia’s hotly contested special election, last year signed his name to a statement likening Israeli control of the West Bank to ‘previous oppressive regimes” such as ‘apartheid South Africa” and suggesting that “ever-present physical walls that wall in Palestinians” is “reminiscent of the Berlin Wall.’” Jewish Insider reported.
The Jewish Insider followed up with another story saying that Warnock blasted Israel” in a 2018 sermon. On Monday, Nov. 9, Loeffler amplified that sermon on Twitter, accusing Warnock of having “a long history of anti-Israel extremism.
We noted in a previous post that “In 2011, Democratic Senate candidate Rev. Raphael Warnock gave a sermon where he said it’s impossible to “serve God and the military.”
How can Obama defend these comments and not call his integrity and conceivably bad character into question? He cannot.
