Former President Barack Hussein Obama is coming out with a new book titled “A Promised Land,” in which he claims his presidency inadvertently spawned a rebirth of racism in America. He wrote: "It was as if my very presence in the White House had triggered a deep-seated panic, a sense that the natural order had been disrupted.”
Strangely, Obama averred: “Which is exactly what Donald Trump understood when he started pedaling assertions that I had not been born in the United States and was thus an illegitimate president.” Baseless or not, that claim has nothing per se to do with racism.
Obama then added, “For millions of Americans spooked by a Black man in the White House, he promised an elixir for their racial anxiety."
Really? Widespread racism you say? Systemic, probably? Countless millions “spooked by a Black man in the White House?” Is that why Obama was easily elected to a second term? I bet Americans were spooked by a handicapped man in the White House, too. Bigots! Serial marginalizers! That must be why they elected Franklin Delano Roosevelt to four consecutive terms in office.
Imagine, then, how much these backward, intolerant Americans must fear and disdain a Black woman! I guess that’s why Oprah Winfrey has been one of the most influential, wealthy, and admired people in the country for many years running now.
No one ever says, “The only reason you didn’t vote for Donald Trump is because you hate white men!” If anyone did, no one would take that person seriously. But progressives continue their deranged and incessant assault on America and more traditional Americans. If they continue to be successful in instilling fear and self-loathing in a significant percentage of Americans, especially young people, it will soon lead to a dramatically less confident, safe, stable, happy and prosperous nation…and one that eventually will lose the will to defend itself. “A Promised Land” no longer.
