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.

    Let’s hope his rousing and dishonest speech has the same effect the as the Wellstone memorial. Obama had 8 years to do something about so called racism and yet he did nothing but fan the flames with his stupidity.
