Former President Barack Obama evidently has one strategy for ignoring the unadulterated failure of his administration: ignore the consequences of his actions, and label any criticism of his holiness as race-based “fear and resentment,” thereby fueling the cycle of racial divisiveness which characterized his time in office.
Ignore, blame. Ignore, blame. Ignore, blame. And so the cycle goes on.
This tactic was on display yet again as the former president appeared on a Monday evening CNN special titled, “Barack Obama on Fatherhood, Leadership and Legacy,” hosted by Anderson Cooper.
Mimicking the Ibram X. Kendi logic of “denial of racism is evidence of racism, so who cares about evidence,” Obama claimed that it was “hard for the majority” of white Americans “to recognize you can be proud of this country and its traditions and its history and our forefathers and yet, it is also true that this terrible stuff happened.”
“The vestiges of that linger and continue,” Obama added.
Of course, no sensible person disagrees
