Senator Tim Scott (R-SC) has refused to accept the Democratic Party’s narrative of victimhood that blames the serious problems experienced by black people in America on alleged systemic racism and the myth of white oppression, basing his White House campaign on an uplifting message of optimism and hope and using his own inspirational life story as an example.
So it should come as no big surprise that Barack Obama, a man who many feel used his presidency to crack open Pandora’s Box to unleash the forces of racial enmity upon America, was understandably not happy with Scott’s hopeful message for young blacks.
Obama scoffed at the South Carolina Republican’s vision of a country where racial recriminations could be relegated to the past, suggesting that Scott was full of hot air and that the focus needs to remain on historical abuses of blacks stemming from the original sin of slavery, an unconstructive idea that only really benefits cynical Democrat politicians and their fellow race-baiters who seek to mold the narrative.
The nation’s 44th president, a figure who holds messianic status with many on the left, especially within the black community, appeared on former adviser David Axelrod’s podcast where he threw shade at the conservative of color.

“And so, if a Republican who may even be sincere in saying ‘I want us all to live together’ doesn’t have a plan for how do we address crippling generational poverty that is a consequence of hundreds of years of racism in this society and we need to do something about that …,” Obama said on Thursday’s edition of “The Axe Files” where he was contemptuous of Scott’s appeal to unity.
“If somebody is not proposing, both acknowledging and proposing elements that say, “No, we can’t just ignore all that and pretend as if everything’s equal and fair. We actually have to walk the walk and not just talk the talk,” Mr. Obama added. “If they’re not doing that, then I think people are rightly skeptical.”
Scott reacted without mentioning Obama by name, “Let us not forget we are a land of opportunity, not a land of oppression,” the senator wrote on Twitter.
“Democrats deny our progress to protect their power. The Left wants you to believe faith in America is a fraud and progress in our nation is a myth,” Scott said, dousing the racial arsonist with an ice-cold bucket of reality. “The truth of MY life disproves the lies of the radical Left.”

“We live in a country where little Black and Brown boys and girls can be President of the United States. The truth is – we’ve had one and the good news is – we will have another,” he added.
The prophet of false hope and chump change also took a shot at former South Carolina governor and U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley who is also running for the White House.
“Nikki Haley I think has a similar approach,” he said, telling Axelrod that “there’s a long history of African-American or other minority candidates within the Republican Party who will validate America and say, ‘Everything’s great, and we can make it.’”
“Barack Obama set minorities back by singling them out as victims instead of empowering them. In America, hard work and personal responsibility matter. My parents didn’t raise me to think that I would forever be a victim. They raised me to know that I was responsible for my success,” Haley shot back in a statement to the New York Post.
Despite his rock star status and universal worship by the media, Obama is a malevolent and divisive figure and as long as he remains an influential force in the culture, there will never truly be racial reconciliation in America.
