RUSH: What would come to your mind first or second if I asked you the question, “What have I said consistently about Obama in trying to get people to understand who he is?” Answer: “He’s got a chip on his shoulder about this entire country from the founding forward because he thinks it’s unjust and illegitimate, was a slave state (and still is) and therefore is heavily balanced and abused against African-Americans.” I’ve said that I can’t tell you how many times.
I’ve had people say, “You know what, Rush? It’s too pat. It’s too simple. It’s not… Obama’s not that simple. It’s gotta be much more complicated.” No, no, no! It is that simple because Obama’s a liberal. He’s a liberal radical. As such, that’s who he is. He’s not the only one who looks at America that way. I mean, he’s presiding over a country that in his eyes deserves to be in decline. He’s presiding over a country for which he needs to apologize. Well, Obama gave an interview. He was on Comedy Central on Monday night. He was on The Daily Show.
It’s hosted by Noah Trevor, or Trevor Noah, I forgot which. It doesn’t matter. And on this program Obama said that America has “by no means overcome the legacies of slavery and Jim Crow and colonialism and racism.” America has by no means overcome any of that. Here’s what he actually said. Grab audio sound bite number three. It was last night, Comedy Central, The Daily Show with Trevor Noah. And the question from the Comedy Central host: “If you’re a white person speaking about race, then you’re just a person who’s interested in race.
“If you’re a person of color speaking about race, it’s like, ‘Oh, the black thing started again.’ So the question I’ve always wanted to know is, how did you navigate that, because we watched you do it. But I also wanted to know how you navigated that through your two terms.” Now, does anybody know what he’s asking here? Is he asking Obama, “How did you navigate the fact that this is a racist country that doesn’t want you in this office?” Is that what he’s asking? What was he asking? (interruption) You don’t know? Anyway, it doesn’t matter. Here’s what Obama said…
OBAMA: Race continues to be this powerful factor in so many elements of our lives. We have by no means overcome the legacies of slavery and Jim Crow and colonialism and racism, but that the progress we’ve made has been real and extraordinary. If I’m communicating my genuine belief that those who are not subject to racism can sometimes have blind spots or lack appreciation of what it feels to be on the receiving end of that. But that doesn’t mean that they’re not open to learning and caring about equality and justice.
RUSH: Well, it’s leftist gobbledygook there. But you heard the answer. No, no, no. “You know, my general theory is that, if I was clear in my own mind about who I was, comfortable in my own skin and had clarity about the way in which race continues to be this powerful factor in so many elements of our lives.” So his legacy, he’s setting it up here. His legacy’s all about race. And I want to go on record. He’s the guy, folks — he is and the Democrat Party are the ones — who made his Regime all about race. His race defined his presidency. It would…
