Former President Barack Obama gives a ‘lecture’ in South Africa and it’s stunning in its lack of self-awareness. Check it out…
Obama was in South Africa speaking at Nelson Mandela’s centenary, and he spoke for almost 90 minutes about a variety of subjects, not just the life and legacy of Mandela. Unsurprisingly he spoke about racial tension, but he also discussed political divisions in a way that made many assume that it was a direct criticism of President Trump.
Barry starts out stating that we live in ‘strange and uncertain times’ and it’s time to bring some ‘perspective’ after reading the ‘head-spinning and disturbing headlines’.
He spoke positively about democracy and the rule of law in the way that we would want a President to speak. (He did add in a caveat about capitalism, but it is Obama, after all. In the last election, a ‘Democratic Socialist’ nearly won the primary to run for President.)
He also seemingly spoke negatively about identity politics. If he sticks to it, it’s a step in the right direction.
Pres. Obama: Democracy demands getting inside "the reality of people who are different than us."
"You can't do it if you insist that those who aren't like you because they're white, or because they're male…that somehow they lack standing to speak on certain matters." pic.twitter.com/NHPR9cQmpQ

Did Barry just say that?!?
Because I totally agree with him.
Don’t worry, he gets right back to his obnoxious, lecturing self when he starts talking about ‘fake news’.
Barack Obama: "Too much of politics today seems to reject the very concept of objective truth"

Fact: A fetus is a genetically separate being from the mother. Incidentally, the word ‘fetus’ is Latin for ‘baby’.
Fact: Biological gender cannot be changed because it’s determined by DNA. Cosmetics won’t change it. Surgery won’t change it.
Whatcha gonna do about that, Mr. Science?
He’s not quite finished talking about truth, though.
He then goes on to discuss how some politicians lie.

‘We see the utter loss of shame among political leaders, where they’re caught in a lie and they just double down and lie some more.’
Too bad Barry’s been guilty of this repeatedly.
‘If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor. If you like your healthcare plan, you can keep your healthcare plan.’
‘I believe that marriage is between a man and a woman.’
‘There is no spying on Americans.’
‘It is easier for a teenager to buy a Glock than get his hands on a computer or even a book.’
When asked about when he knew about Hillary’s private server, he said he learned about it when it was reported on the news. That was a lie. He was using a pseudonym and there was a massive cover-up to protect him.
Barry’s just speaking from authority, amirite?
Here’s Barry talking about ‘Strongman politics’ that is on the rise and threatening democracies.

‘Some pretense of democracy are maintained — the form of it — but those in power seek to undermine every institution or norm that gives democracy meaning.’
Oh, you mean like weaponizing government against your political enemies?
I mean, the American people would be livid if someone used the following agencies to push their own political agenda and protect their political allies:
Not even a smidgen of corruption.
Yes, this certainly was a lecture.

“I love how Trump looks confident. He’s not weepy or angry. He’s winning and doing exactly what he promised, namely, Making America Great Again. I also really enjoyed painting Comey, Obama, Hillary, Pelosi, Debbie and Anderson Cooper getting sucked down the drain. This is one of the funniest paintings I have ever painted. I couldn’t be happier and I hope these prints adorn the walls of every Trump supporter. I’m so glad Brandon Vallorani commissioned me to paint this epic, hilarious, and patriotic masterpiece.” — Doug Giles
Where can you see this fine — and hilarious — portrait?
No, you don’t have to wait until this beauty is hung in the Smithsonian. You can get your own copy of Drain the Swamp right here.
There’s one thing that increasingly unites men and women these days. We can both agree that Liberals are losing their ever-loving minds. Now there’s a shirt that says just that.
Conveniently available in Both Ladies…
AND Men’s versions.
Either Liberals just don’t get it, or they are sick in the head. Probably both. Think about it: They want to have all of the blessings that come with living in a capitalist society such as modern medicine and technology. But they believe in socialism, which stifles innovation and progress.
They want to be protected by the police and the military, but they attack and criticize the men and women who protect us. They call conservatives “racists,” but it’s their own identity politics that have created race problems in the first place. After all, Democrats were the party of slavery!
They attack hunters, but have no problem wearing leather shoes or owning cars with leather upholstery! And of course, they believe guns kill people. Not the people that pull the trigger.
Well, here’s a shirt that sums it perfectly. Liberalism is a… MENTAL DISORDER.
And the best part? This shirt is made in the USA, printed in the USA, on an American-Made t-shirt press!
