Oba­mas con­tinue to di­vide US so­ci­ety

The left’s anti-Trump fake news me­dia blitz, de­signed to usurp a demo­crat­i­cally elected gov­ern­ment is un­re­pen­tant.

The Sunday Guardian - - & Comment Analysis -

Nei­ther Michelle Obama, Barack Hus­sein Obama nor Hil­lary Clin­ton will go away. Why does the me­dia keep giv­ing them a plat­form and al­low them to con­tinue to en­cour­age and en­able divi­sion in Amer­ica?

The for­mer First Lady’s lat­est at­ten­tion-grab­bing stunt was to dis­miss the en­tire GOP as en­tirely male and white. Need­less to say, the Repub­li­can Party is not tak­ing kindly to Mrs Obama’s reck­less race-bait­ing.

“It’s un­for­tu­nate Michelle Obama would dis­re­gard the con­tri­bu­tions of con­ser­va­tive women and peo­ple of all back­grounds with one sweep­ing, false ac­cu­sa­tion,” RNC Chair­woman Ronna McDaniel told Fox News on Thurs­day.

Obama’s com­ments came on Tues­day, as she was de­scrib­ing the feel­ing she got walk­ing into the Con­gres­sional cham­ber for State of the Union ad­dresses. “Phys­i­cally, there’s a dif­fer­ence in colour, in the tone. …Be­cause one side—all men, all white. On the other side— some women, some peo­ple of colour,” she said.

The race-bait­ing Oba­mas just can’t help them­selves. The racial di­vide has not widened this much since the 1960s. Thanks, Obama! Are we try­ing to frac­ture and splin­ter Amer­ica? Cre­ate race wars? If so, Amer­ica is headed in the right di­rec­tion, given the di­vi­sive­ness of Obama and Clin­ton’s “re­sis­tance” rhetoric and the cur­rent pro­gres­sive mantra of “if I dis­agree with you—you are a Nazi, racist, misog­y­nist, sex­ist, ho­mo­phobe, Is­lam­o­phobe, etc. etc.”

Add to this lib­eral-left and me­dia’s fail­ure to de­nounce An­tifa, along with their nor­mal­i­sa­tion of vi­o­lence against Don­ald Trump and his fam­ily. From Kathy Grif­fin’s bloody photo op with a sev­ered Trump head, to Johnny Depp’s ter­ri­ble, taste­less as­sas­si­na­tion “joke”, to Snoop Dogg’s in­fa­mous mu­sic video for the song “Laven­der”—in which the rap­per is shown shoot­ing a clown ver­sion of Don­ald Trump—and it’s clear that pur­vey­ors of pro­gres­sive pop cul­ture have fu­elled a hos­tile en­vi­ron­ment to­wards Trump and the Repub­li­can Party.

We can only spec­u­late just how much dam­age this poi­son has done to so­ci­ety at large. Did it lead di­rectly to the shoot­ing of Repub­li­cans at a base­ball game? Some have even spec­u­lated that the ter­ri­ble mass-shoot­ing in Las Ve­gas was in­flu­enced by this di­vi­sive po­lit­i­cal cli­mate.

The left’s un­prece­dented anti-Trump fake news me­dia blitz, de­signed to in­doc­tri- nate and usurp a demo­crat­i­cally elected gov­ern­ment is un­re­pen­tant. Will some­body please ad­vise the Oba­mas, the Clin­tons, and our very fake news or­gan­i­sa­tions that Obama is no longer President—and that Hil­lary ran a ter­ri­ble elec­tion in 2016 and lost?

Alert the very fake news me­dia that— by virtue of his vic­tory (you know, that whole demo­cratic process thing) in the pres­i­den­tial elec­tions of 2016—Don­ald J. Trump is the President of the United States of Amer­ica.

They don’t need to cover Michelle Obama any­more. They cer­tainly don’t need to give Obama a plat­form to cause even more divi­sion in our so­ci­ety. Amer­i­can Mitchell Feier­stein is a New York and London based fund man­ager and au­thor of the book Planet Ponzi.

Will some­body please ad­vise the Oba­mas, the Clin­tons, and our very fake news or­gan­i­sa­tions that Obama is no longer President and Hil­lary lost the 2016 elec­tion?
