Dear CNN: Obama Gives Hypocritical Speech In South Africa — Are You Going To Call Him On It?

Written by K. Walker on July 18, 2018

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’.

Perspective… okay.

Like how the ‘caged children’ photo that caused massive protests and a backlash against our border control agency occurred on your watch?

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.

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’.

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.’

Don’t you just hate that?

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.’

There are neighborhoods where it’s easier for you to buy a handgun and clips than it is for you to buy a fresh vegetable.’

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.

The Obama administration’s repeated lies to the family of murdered U.S. Border Patrol agent, Brian Terry. The DOJ tried to conceal the link to his death and Fast and Furious.

The Benghazi attack was the result of a YouTube video.

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:

IRS
FBI
DOJ
NSA

But don’t forget — Barry’s administration was ‘scandal-free’.

Not even a smidgen of corruption.

It’s easy to be ‘scandal-free’ when the press buries your scandals.

Yes, this certainly was a lecture.

If you’re feeling particularly masochistic, you can watch the whole speech here:
