Former President Barack Obama blasted the founding fathers’ vision of a Constitutional Republic as racist, sexist and anti-poor during a discussion to manipulate voting maps earlier this month, ripping off his thinly-veiled mask of patriotism.
In the video produced by Obama for America, which has been re-named All On The Line (AOTL), Obama lambasted Senator Mike Lee for stating correctly that America is not a democracy. AOTL has been reinvented to “mobilize activists across the country to end gerrymandering,” or the redrawing of maps to favor a political party.
Barack Obama and his “wingman” Eric Holder’s organization AOTL is “supported” by the National Democratic Redistricting Committee, which, according to their tax form 8871, (see form embedded) was designed to “favorably position Democrats for the redistricting process through 2022”.
Obama outrageously claimed that Senator Mike Lee’s motivation for his support of America as a “Constitutional Republic” and not a “Democracy” is racism, misogyny and hatred of poor people:
“He [Mike Lee] rationalized it,” Obama said, “‘Technically we are a ‘Republic, this and that and the other’ but what he was indicating was a spirit we’ve been seeing in -um- one of our political parties. And it’s not new. It’s one that has been with us since our founding that essentially says ‘Democracy is for some people and not for everyone – that actively restricts voting…very explicitly to white males with property. If you’re a woman, if you’re a person of color, if you’re not wealthy, then democracy didn’t necessarily apply to you’.”
Obama’s rhetoric has gotten increasingly hysterical since he left office in 2017. As reported at RAIR Foundation in August, the former president referred to the filibuster, also known as the “nuclear option,” as a “Jim Crow relic.” As leftists often do, Obama evidently changed his position from one he held in 2005 which strongly advocated for the filibuster as a tool for the minority to have a voice through their elected representatives.
