This past Friday President Obama gave a speech in Palo Alto, California at the 2016 Global Entrepreneurship Summit. It was one of his first speeches after the controversial Brexit vote where British citizens decided by referendum they would leave the European Union.
Speaking to young entrepreneurs he said,
“When people can start their own businesses it helps people and families succeed… It offers a positive path for young people seeking to make something of themselves and can empower people who previously have been locked out of the existing social order, women, minorities, others who aren’t part of the old boys network.”
His comments were eerily similar to those during his 2012 presidential campaign when he told entrepreneurs and business people, “you didn’t build that.” Basically saying that business owners who were successful did not get there as a result of their own hard work. How ironic he now is speaking at an entrepreneurship summit. More like laughable.
What Obama pretty much told everyone at that summit is that only white men are in the so called “old boys club.” Women and minorities have no chance of penetrating that group in his eyes. His comments are rather racist if you think about it.
Insinuating only white men can gain success and membership into the so called “old boys club” from this magical white privilege because of their skin color and not their work ethic is in itself racist.
And this coming from a man who says he’s experienced racism in the past.
Despite his presence at the summit, Obama is not the business oriented mogul he likes to portray himself to be. The United States currently ranks 12th amongst developed nations in business. While it’s continued to decrease for thirty years, it was in 2008 when Obama took office that it took a major nose dive.
One heading for the article this graph was found in by Gallup puts into words exactly the harm that Obama has caused. Declining business startups means declining revenue which leads to decreased levels of spending on social goods spending. Which makes Obama’s comments even more ignorant.
He tried rationalizing his “you didn’t build that” comments by saying he meant businesses were in part successful because of government spending and public infrastructure, which in his distorted world view means they are required to finance public goods. But his policies have made it so they can’t even AFFORD public goods spending!
Once again Obama has taken a giant deuce all over America, men & women entrepreneurs, and displayed to the world his racist attitude towards whites. Disgusting.
PS: In case you’re wondering, “deuce” in slang means “sh-t.” Just so we have that clear.
