That’s some legacy, Mr. President.
The Media (D) ignored these things when they happened, but when they’re all put together, it’s a compelling case that shatters Obama’s image of ‘unifier’.
He was actually the Divider In Chief.
Here are 10 reasons that support the claim.
1. He said ‘Americans are racist’.
Barry wasn’t the one to bring in a ‘post-racial era’ — he fanned the flames of racism.
He was quick to blame the police and systemic racism for the shooting of black suspects, even before all of the details were in.
Any criticism of his policies was deemed ‘racist’.
Don’t like the government forcing you to buy a product (ObamaCare) that you don’t want?
Don’t want higher taxes?
You don’t want to multiply regulations exponentially?
Oh, and you want to make sure that the Presidential candidate is actually American?
2. Unnecessarily inserting himself into racially sensitive issues
His famous, ‘If I had a son he’d look like Trayvon‘ statement made non-black Americans uncomfortable and stoked the flames of racism. George Zimmerman was cast as the ‘bad guy’ cop wannabe that gunned down an innocent black teen. This inserted more bias into the case. Zimmerman had taken a pretty heavy-duty beating from Trayvon before the gun was fired. Prosecutors didn’t even want to push the case until there was national outrage stoked by Barry’s ‘If I had a son…’ statement.
3. He urged Latino voters to ‘Punish their enemies’
In 2010, Barry pushed the identity politics by suggesting that Latino voters ‘punish their enemies and reward the friends that stand by them’ in the voting booth.
So what happens if you’re Latino and don’t like Democrat policies?
You’re not truly Latino, then.
This is just one example of the way Democrats, including Obama, lump people into identity groups instead of seeing them as individuals.
4. He used the White House Easter Prayer Breakfast to attack Christians
“On Easter, I do reflect on the fact that, as a Christian, I am supposed to love. And I have to say that sometimes, when I listen to less than loving expressions by Christians, I get concerned. But that’s a topic for another day.”
5. His ‘Bitter Clinger’ comment
In 2008, Barry blamed midwest voter frustration with their economic reality to racism, and said, ‘They get bitter, cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.’
6. He made up a white girlfriend that he broke up with over ‘race issues’
In his 1995 memoir, ‘Dreams From My Father‘ that was published when Barry was the ripe old age of 34, Obama recounts how he broke up with his white ‘New York girlfriend’ due to disagreements over race-related issues.
Later, Barry walked that back, saying that some of the characters were ‘compressions’ of several people that he knew. He recounted a story of taking his ‘New York girlfriend’ to see a play by a black playwright, and the fallout. Genevieve Cook had been identified as his ‘New York girlfriend’, but she denies having gone to the play.
But Obama has now told biographer David Maraniss that the ‘New York girlfriend’ was actually a composite character, based off of multiple girlfriends he had both in New York City and in Chicago….
…Obama acknowledged that the scene did not happen with Genevieve. “It is an incident that happened,” he said. But not with her. He would not be more specific, but the likelihood is that it happened later, when he lived in Chicago. “That was not her,” he said. “That was an example of compression I was very sensitive in my book not to write about my girlfriends, partly out of respect for them. So that was a consideration. I thought that [the anecdote involving the reaction of a white girlfriend to the angry black play] was a useful theme to make about sort of the interactions that I had in the relationships with white girlfriends.
7. He called his grandmother a ‘typical white person’
‘The point I was making was not that my grandmother harbors any racial animosity. She doesn’t. But she is a typical white person, who, if she sees somebody on the street that she doesn’t know there’s a reaction that’s been bred into our experiences that don’t go away and that sometimes come out in the wrong way and that’s just the nature of race in our society.‘

8. He was unconcerned about the Black Lives Matter protests
Barry had BLM activists visit the White House.
White House press secretary Josh Earnest said the Black Lives Matter protests — as long as they are peaceful — could help bring reforms in police departments.
“I would not describe the White House as concerned about these protests,” Mr. Earnest said. “They’re exercising their freedom of speech, they’re exercising their freedom of assembly. That’s a good thing. That’s a good start.”

9. He downplayed Black-on-White violence
His most notable instance was when a Black nationalist murdered 5 Dallas police officers, Barry said, ‘I think it’s very hard to untangle the motives of this shooter.‘
The motive was crystal clear. The cops were there protecting demonstrators protesting the alleged ‘systemic racism’ of police officers that caused the deaths of Philando Castile and Alton Sterling.
Later, the shooter, Micah Xavier Johnson, stated that he wanted to ‘kill white people, especially white officers’.
10. He refused to acknowledge ‘Radical Islamic Terrorism’
However, Barry was quick to cite ‘racism’ as the reason that Michael Brown, Trayvon Martin, Freddie Gray and others were killed by police — even when he was completely wrong.
Barry’s legacy is one of division, identity politics, and despising those that disagree with him.
Aren’t you glad that he can never be president again?
Thank God for term limits!
