Barack Obama Fuels BLM, Antifa – The GOP Establishment Is SHOCKED!

Barack Obama shocks Americans with his recent remarks

The former President had an interview with Bruce Springsteen and discussed several major topics, including reparations. According to Obama, the “politics of white resistance” bars him from giving African Americans in US reparations. Well, he sat down to talk about “unity,” and these comments are really confusing.

The Daily Wire reports: “Obama and Springsteen recently launched a podcast together where the pair discuss how to pursue “unity” among Americans and forge friendships across party, class, and racial lines. The podcast is billed as two friends from polar opposite backgrounds coming together — Springsteen from a working-class New Jersey upbringing and Obama from a childhood spent in Hawaii and later, in Chicago — but both Springsteen and Obama are now wealthy Democrats.”

What about reparations?

“Obama said he believes reparations are ‘justified’ and that ‘there’s not much question that the wealth… the power of this country was built in significant part — not exclusively, maybe not even the majority of it, but a large portion of it — was built on the backs of slaves,’” Fox News reports.

“The former president claimed that a reparations proposal didn’t make its way through the lawmaking process during his presidency due to ‘the politics of White resistance and resentment,’” the outlet added.

“And what I saw during my presidency was the politics of White resistance and resentment. The talk of ‘welfare queens’ and the talk of the ‘undeserving’ poor. And the backlash against affirmative action,” Obama said during the podcast. “All that made the prospect of actually proposing any kind of coherent, meaningful reparations program struck me as, politically, not only a nonstarter but potentially counterproductive.”

Of course, Obama realized his comments were a bit ugly, so he tried to play nice.

He said it is “perfectly understandable why working-class White folks, middle-class White folks, folks who are having trouble paying the bills or dealing with student loans, wouldn’t be too thrilled” about “a massive program that is designed to deal with the past but isn’t speaking to their future.”

Here’s a report from the Daily Wire:

Congress has considered the issue of reparations repeatedly over the course of the last half-century, but generally, the idea of reparations does not get further than a study committee. Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) introduced a bill to commission yet another committee to study the possibility of issuing reparations recently and President Joe Biden reportedly backs the effort, though it’s not clear on whether the president would support actual reparations.

Several black leaders questioned Lee’s proposal in Congressional hearings last week, criticizing reparations as “wealth redistribution” and questioning the practicality and fairness of issuing reparations checks, given that the program would necessarily involve recipients demonstrating some genetic proof of a connection to slavery in the United States.
