Hillary Clinton promises us she’ll continue the legacy of Barack Obama’s presidency (which should be reason enough never to vote for her), and to Obama, being the first black president somehow fits into that. Hillary has been blasting Donald Trump for months now as “racist” to solidify her minority voting base, and now Obama is considering blacks voting Democrat as “protecting his legacy.”
“I will consider it a personal insult, an insult to my legacy if this community lets down its guard and fails to activate itself in this election,” Obama said with a stern look and booming passion. “You want to give me a good send-off, go vote.”
Surprising Obama didn’t come out and say it would be racist to vote for Trump.
How fitting Obama wants to you continue his legacy by refusing to think for yourself?
As BizPacReview reports, many in the black community are thinking for themselves – and voting Trump anyway.
Leslie Wimes, a community activist in Florida, penned an intensely personal op-ed taking it to President Barack Obama for suggesting it would be “a personal insult” if black Americans fail to turn out in support of Hillary Clinton.
Wimes she didn’t mince her words in responding to the president in an op-ed, “No, President Obama, Black America Doesn’t Owe You a Vote for Hillary!”
I recently wrote that Black America really didn’t want to see you go, but if you keep talking like this, we’ll hold the door open for you.
As I get older, I like to use phrases my grandmother used, and Mr. President, you were smelling yourself that night when you said you would take it as a personal insult if we didn’t vote for Hillary Clinton.
Whether you know it or not, the smell was pure garbage.
Should we take it personally that she called us “super predators”? Clearly, even though she has since apologized, that hasn’t been forgotten. Should we take it personally that the 1994 Crime Bill signed into law by her husband, and championed by Hillary Clinton, wreaked havoc on our community?
Hillary Clinton hasn’t always been a friend to our community, so should we take it as a personal insult that you are now trying to tie our respect for you with a vote for her?
That’s almost like a domestic violence abuser. “If you love me, then you’ll do this! If you don’t do it, then that means you don’t love me.”
President Obama stop it!
Exactly what has Hillary Clinton done to appeal to young black voters, except call them names years ago, disrespect them as Black Lives Matter movement protesters, and then rely on certain black surrogates such as yourself to do her leg work for her?
No, President Obama, I don’t think we owe you anything. Our debt to you, if we ever had one, is more than paid in full. We stood in line for hours during two elections to ensure that you became, and stayed, a resident of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.
Here’s a question Obama doesn’t want to answer – if his legacy is worth preserving. What has be done for the black community that would make them want a third term of Obama? Record poverty? Worsened race relations? Worsened relations between police and people?
If Obama tells you to vote a certain way to further his legacy – vote the opposite way.
