After Thursday’s funeral for Rep. John Lewis, it’s clear that President Obama can’t resist playing the role of the Democrats’ Divider-In-Chief. Anyone accusing President Trump of being the most divisive president in US history hasn’t paid attention to the nasty things President Obama has said.

Yesterday, President Obama literally used the pulpit to say “George Wallace may be gone. But we can witness our federal government sending agents to use tear gas and batons against peaceful demonstrators.” Jeffrey Lord noted in his commentary of President Obama’s eulogy that “Fifty-seven years ago, the newly sworn-in Democrat governor of Alabama, George Wallace, delivered those words [“And I say … segregation today … segregation tomorrow … segregation forever.”] in his inaugural address. In other words: George Wallace, who was a product of a political party that built its political power by supporting every imaginable policy that divided Americans by race, was at it again. Using the momentary pulpit that was a governor’s inaugural to play the race card — again.”

Here’s what President Obama said:

George Wallace may be gone. But we can witness our federal government sending agents to use tear gas and batons against peaceful demonstrators. We may no longer have to guess the number of jellybeans in a jar in order to cast a ballot, but even as we sit here, there are those in power, who are doing their darndest to discourage people from voting by closing polling locations and targeting minorities and students with restrictive ID laws and attacking our voting rights with surgical precision, even undermining the postal service in the run-up to an election that’s going to be dependent on mail-in ballots so people don’t get sick.

Democrats should be punished for President Obama’s racist eulogy:

In another part of his eulogy, Obama advocated for “ending some of the partisan gerrymandering so that all voters have the right to choose their politicians, not the other way around. And if all this takes eliminating the filibuster, another Jim Crow relic, in order to secure the God-given rights of every American, then that’s what we should do.” What President Obama omitted is the fact that the Jim Crow laws were written by Democrats. George Wallace was a Democrat, too. This shouldn’t be ignored:

What is particularly despicable here is that the race card was played at a funeral for a man whose famous moment of heroism was protesting … racism. Not to be forgotten here is that the state troopers involved that day in Selma when John Lewis had his skull cracked were in the employ of Democrat Gov. George Wallace.

Democrat President Clinton signed the 1994 Crime Bill into law that started mass incarceration. Republican President Trump signed the First Step Act into law to fix the damage done by the Democrats’ 1994 Crime Bill.

President Obama’s appearance was part eulogy, part political speech. All of President Obama’s post-presidential political speeches have been intentionally divisive. They’re usually dishonest, filled with strawman arguments and outright lies. For instance, he said that “our federal government” sent in “agents to tear gas” peaceful protesters. That’s BS and he knows it. Just reading Andy Ngo’s or Julio Rosas’s twitter feeds proves President Obama full of BS.

While Democrat leftists caterwaul about “Gestapo activities” in Portland, these Democrat leftists ignore the fact that businesses are permanently closing their doors. Apparently, Democrats don’t care about the guys who run places like Old Town Pizza & Brewing. Old Town Pizza & Brewing recently finished the day “with just $18.75 in sales.”

It’s just another sad story in a series of sad stories radiating out from Democrat-run cities. Adam Milne, the owner of Old Town Pizza & Brewing, recently said “I think all restaurants are really hurting and struggling, but I’m not sure if the city and state officials realize that to be a restaurant and to be in downtown Portland right now is a double blow. Not only are we suffering from the pandemic, but we have an area of the state that everyone is avoiding eating and drinking.”

Thanks to Antifa’s and BLM’s nightly riots, only an idiot would venture into downtown Portland. Meanwhile, Democrat House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn said this on CNN:


Rep. Clyburn should be thrown out of the House for uttering that type of BS. Instead of challenging him on making such an incendiary statement, CNN just let it go. This isn’t some back-bench bomb-thrower. This is the third-ranking Democrat in the House. Further, he’s the guy that helped Joe Biden win the Democrats’ presidential nomination. Without Clyburn’s nomination right before the South Carolina Primary, Bernie would be the Democrats’ nominee.

Speaking of Mr. Biden, here’s what he said in an ad about uniting the country:

First, Biden hasn’t criticized Portland’s violence with the exception of him criticizing federal law enforcement:

Former Vice President Joe Biden said Tuesday that the Trump administration was deploying Department of Homeland Security officers in Portland without clearly defined goals, even as department officials defended their efforts to eliminate violent protests. “We have a president who is determined to sow chaos and division,” said Biden, the presumptive Democratic nominee to challenge President Donald Trump on Nov. 3. “To make matters worse instead of better.”

I guess that’s Biden’s way of uniting the nation. Criticizing law enforcement officers who are protecting a federal courthouse isn’t uniting people. It’s being a loud-mouthed jerk, then pretending to be a uniter.

The question is whether Americans will admit that they see what’s happening. Joe Biden isn’t pro-law enforcement. He’s for whatever keeps Democrats together. In his minute-long ad, Biden talked about representing all Americans, whether they voted for him or not. What we’ve heard from, though, are the words of a divider, the words of a hate-filled man.

Joe Biden won’t challenge Ted Wheeler, Portland’s mayor. He won’t stop the rioting, either. Frankly, Joe Biden doesn’t know how to challenge Democrats. Whatever they want to do is fine with him. Portland is proof of that.

FOOTNOTE: When Barack Obama was president and Biden was his vice president, they were openly hostile to the police. Read about what they did in Ferguson. Remember that they didn’t lift a finger to stop Chicago’s violence, either. If you want more of the same, vote Biden. If you want safe streets, vote Trump. It’s that simple.

Since Nancy Pelosi insists on getting rid of statues of former members of the Confederacy, Louie Gohmert is insisting on taking it a step further. Gohmert, along with fellow House Republicans, “introduced a resolution Thursday” that would force Democrats to change their Party’s name.

Specifically, the resolution would “remove any items that names, symbolizes or mentions any political organization or party that has ever held a public position that supported slavery or the Confederacy.” To stick it to the Democrats further, Gohmert issued a statement. Here’s what it said (in part):

As outlined in the resolution, a great portion of the history of the Democratic Party is filled with racism and hatred. Since people are demanding we rid ourselves of the entities, symbols, and reminders of the repugnant aspects of our past, then the time has come for Democrats to acknowledge their party’s loathsome and bigoted past, and consider changing their party name to something that isn’t so blatantly and offensively tied to slavery, Jim Crow, discrimination, and the Ku Klux Klan.

To avoid triggering innocent bystanders by the racist past of the Democratic Party, I would suggest they change their name. That is the standard to which they are holding everyone else, so the name change needs to occur.

Rep. Gohmert was just getting started. He delivered this speech on the House floor:

Rep. Gohmert read this into the record, too:

Whereas, The 14th Amendment, giving full citizenship to freed slaves, passed in 1868 with 94% Republican support and 0% Democrat support in Congress; the 15th Amendment, giving freed slaves the right to vote, passed in 1870 with 100% Republican support and 0% Democrat support in Congress.

Just for good measure, Rep. Gohmert included this information:

Whereas, The 1924 Democratic National Convention convened in New York City at Madison Square Garden; the convention is commonly known as the “Klan Bake” due to the overwhelming influence of the Ku Klux Klan in the Democratic Party. 

Whereas, In 1964 the Democratic Party led a 75-calendar-day filibuster against the 1964 Civil Rights Act.

Just like Joe Biden, the Democrat Party is racist to its roots. Here are some of Biden’s greatest hits:

  1. You can’t walk into a 7/11 or Dunkin’ Donuts without hearing a slight Indian accent.
  2. I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American (Obama) who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy.
  3. Unless we do something about this, my children are going to grow up in a jungle, the jungle being a racial jungle.
  4. That people would come to him and talk about what was happening to them at home in terms of foreclosures, in terms of bad loans that were being … I mean these Shylocks who took advantage of, um, these women and men while overseas.

Then there’s this:

Biden has also had many friendships with infamous bigots and racists, including:

  1. George Wallace, a Democrat politician who served as Alabama’s governor and is remembered for declaring, “segregation now, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever!” Biden said the Democrats needed another candidate just like George Wallace.
  2. Biden also effusively praised Sen. John Stennis of Mississippi, another Democrat segregationist, calling him “a man of character.”
  3. Biden also cultivated a fawning friendship with James Eastland, yet another racist, segregationist Democrat senator. Eastland called segregation “God’s Law” and repeatedly referred to blacks as an “inferior race.”

There’s more than ample proof that Democrats are the Party of Bigots and Racists. Finally, what have Democrats done in the last 25 years to improve the lives of African-Americans? Did they push for the passage of the First Step Act? Nope. That was the GOP. Did Democrats push for permanent funding of HBCUs? Nope. That was President Trump.

According to this resolution, racism is a health crisis. That isn’t my implication. That’s from HR1 from the House Second Special Session. The resolution starts by saying “A House resolution declaring racism a public health crisis. WHEREAS, race is a social construct with no biological basis; and WHEREAS, racism is embedded in the foundation of America, beginning with chattel slavery in 1619; and WHEREAS, much of the Black experience in America has been endured under slavery and Jim Crow, which created preferential opportunities for white people while subjecting people of color to hardships and disadvantages in every area of life;”

First, let’s dispose of the myth that the United States started in 1619. In 1619, the colonies were still under British rule. The Boston Tea Party, which was one of the first rebellious acts by the colonies against British governance, didn’t happen until Dec. 16, 1773. This is proof that timelines matter. The British indeed loved a two-tiered system of government. Royalty and commoners weren’t supposed to mix. The US didn’t want that system so they did something revolutionary.

The US said that our rights came from “Nature’s God” and that “all men are created equal.” The 56 men who signed the Declaration believed that each person was created in the image of Nature’s God. That’s why the US fought a civil war to end slavery. The US is the only nation that’s fought a war to abolish slavery. That isn’t something that a nation committed to systematic slavery would do.

Even after the Civil War, the Confederacy, the home of the Democrat Party, still insisted on building impediments to full-fledged liberty. That’s what Jim Crow was about. It’s a biological fact. Next, most of the embedded pockets of racism, especially slavery and Jim Crow, were mostly found in the South when Democrats reigned supreme:

Black codes were strict local and state laws that detailed when, where and how formerly enslaved people could work, and for how much compensation. The codes appeared throughout the South as a legal way to put Black citizens into indentured servitude, to take voting rights away, to control where they lived and how they traveled and to seize children for labor purposes.

If the DFL wants to admit that the GOP was created to end slavery and that Democrats were the party of the KKK, Jim Crow and the Confederacy, that’s fine. The things that Democrats have stood for have been evil. Recently, Democrats haven’t protected minorities, letting Antifa and BLM rioters destroy minority-owned businesses and minority-owned neighborhoods. Democrats called for the dismantling of the police departments that protect minority neighborhoods.

WHEREAS, public health disparities have persisted for over 400 years and there are long-standing, unaddressed disparities as well as systemic racism and other socioeconomic inequities;

That’s a lie. The problems within the black community first appeared after LBJ’s signing of the Great Society legislation. Since then, poverty in minority neighborhoods has tripled.

WHEREAS, more than 100 studies have linked racism to worse health outcomes; and WHEREAS, in Minnesota the highest excess death rates exist for Black and Indigenous communities, at every age demographic; and WHEREAS, Minnesota must address persistent disparities in health outcomes and the social, economic, educational, and environmental inequities that contribute to them;

Linking worse health outcomes to racism is BS. How many of these ‘studies’ are peer-reviewed and questioned? Might outcomes improve if schools taught the value of proper nutrition?

John James’ op-ed highlights how upset James is with Joe Biden’s disrespectful statement that “If you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, you ain’t black.” Biden’s statement was thoroughly disrespectful but that didn’t prevent Democrats from spinning the incident.

Sheila Jackson-Lee told Bret Baier that Joe Biden had said this offensive line in jest but that it didn’t turn out as funny as they’d hoped. There’s just one problem with that statement. Biden issued a statement an hour earlier that essentially apologized to black voters. As for Biden’s record vs. President Trump’s record towards African-Americans, Biden should tread lightly. Biden authored the 1994 crime bill, which led to the mass incarceration of African-Americans. Another part of that bill was the 3 strikes law, which also disproportionately hurt African-Americans. Finally, income inequality between communities of color and whites increased. That isn’t a record to be proud of.

By comparison, President Trump’s economic policies reduced the gap in incomes between African-Americans and whites. Trump’s policies also led to the lowest minority unemployment rates in our nation’s history. While those are significant accomplishments that’ve improved the lives of African-Americans, they aren’t the pinnacle of Trump accomplishments towards the African-American community.

This ad, featuring Alice Johnson, blows away all of Biden’s accomplishments:

To Vice President Biden, if you think that your record of mass incarcerations of African-Americans is a positive, especially compared with President Trump’s reversal of those evils, then your moral compass is worthless. Here’s something worth considering from John James’ op-ed:

Do leaders of the Democratic Party really think they “own” the black vote? Will anyone from the Democratic Party call out Joe Biden? Will my opponent in Michigan’s U.S. Senate race, Sen. Gary Peters? After 30 years of rank-and-file partisanship as a career politician, I suspect he won’t.

This isn’t just a Joe Biden problem. It’s a white Democrat problem. This is important, too:

Biden’s views have been exposed and stand in stark contrast to President Trump, who visited Michigan Thursday and actually listened to the needs of black people from black people.

On his visit the president asked black community leaders what we need to deal with COVID-19, a disease that has unmasked long-standing inequities in black communities. I was there, joining in advocating for jobs and training to build up our black communities and the entire state of Michigan.

The biggest difference between President Trump and Joe Biden is that President Trump listens to people. Joe Biden doesn’t. Biden is an arrogant bastard. Shame on him.

Before he jumped into the race, Joe Biden’s Democrat presidential challengers brought up his history of his inappropriate (and creepy) touching of women of all ages. As quickly as it started, though, it died down. That’s unfortunate. Joe Biden is a creepy old white man.

As sad as Biden’s creepy touchy habits are, that isn’t his worst character defect. This article highlights Joe Biden’s worst character defect.

Never willing to let a good race-baiting opportunity go to was, “former Vice President Joe Biden rang the alarm that ‘Jim Crow is sneaking back’ at a campaign rally in South Carolina, the south’s first primary state that is seen as key to clinching the Democratic nomination.” This isn’t surprising, just disgusting and repetitive. Joe Biden has been doing this for years. Here’s another instance of Biden playing the race-baiting card:

Simply put, Biden is both a race-baiter and a pervert. It’s time that sensible Democrats rejected this type of campaigning. That’s if sensible Democrats still exist. Then there’s this:

On systemic racism, Biden gave the example that if two men named “Jamal” and “John” applied for the same job, “John” would easily get the gig.

I’m tired of hearing this crap. That sounds like something another old white Democrat (Mark Dayton) said.

Biden held a campaign rally Saturday in Columbia, the Palmetto State’s capital and home to the University of South Carolina. Bidden added to his usual fighting-for-the-middle-class stump speech by calling for protecting voting rights and ending “systemic racism.” Biden cited numerous states’ voting laws which he said are “mostly directed at people of color.”

Andrew Gillum and Stacey Abrams tried playing that race card, too. They almost won. Neither race should’ve been close. Apparently, Democrats can’t help themselves when it comes to race-baiting:

It’s sickening to see Democrats pandering to Al Sharpton, aka Tawana Brawley’s co-conspirator. While it’s sickening, it isn’t surprising.

According to this article, the Missouri state senator who advocated for President Trump’s assassination “has been stripped of her committee assignments” even after apologizing.

Sen. Chappelle-Nadal’s apology said “President Trump, I apologize to you and your family. I also apologize to all the people in Missouri. And I also apologize to my colleagues in the Missouri legislature for the mistake that I made.” Sen. Chappelle-Nadal made her apology while in “at the Wellspring Church in Ferguson, Missouri.”

Democrats have insisted since President Trump was inaugurated that he’s a racist. Democrats have also insisted that they’re the protectors of the First Amendment. Neither statement is true. Further, Sen. Chappelle-Nadal has shown herself to represent the worst in politics.

For years, Democrats have portrayed Republicans as racists. The more we highlight Democrats like Sen. Chappelle-Nadal, the more it’s painfully obvious that there’s lots of racists in the Democratic Party.

The tide might be turning, albeit grudgingly. After last weekend’s Antifa’s Berkeley riot, Nancy Pelosi criticized Antifa last night, saying “Our democracy has no room for inciting violence or endangering the public, no matter the ideology of those who commit such acts. The violent actions of people calling themselves antifa [sic] in Berkeley this weekend deserve unequivocal condemnation, and the perpetrators should be arrested and prosecuted.”

After the Charlottesville riot two weeks ago, Democrats, not to mention the MSM, were apoplectic because President Trump didn’t respond forcefully and quickly enough for their liking. It was a 5-day story. Ms. Pelosi sat silent on the Berkeley riots for several days. We didn’t see articles from pundits like Charles Blow or Eugene Robinson criticizing Ms. Pelosi’s silence.


Pelosi’s words ring hollow when viewed historically:

The House’s top Democrat had repeatedly slammed the National Park Service as “misguided” for allowing the rally, saying she had “grave concerns” about the “public safety hazard” NPS would create by “permitting a white supremacist rally” in the middle of Crissy Field in San Francisco.

Simply put, Ms. Pelosi criticized Antifa after the political pressure got high. I’d argue that her ‘apology’ is as phony as a $3 bill.

The evidence is mounting that the Democratic Party is returning to its racist roots. It’s important to remind people that the Democratic Party was the party that wrote the Jim Crow laws and filibustered the Civil Rights Act.
