Before we get started, how many more memoirs is this narcissist going to write?
Rising Republican star, South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem on Thursday skewered former president and current condescending-know-it-all Barack Obama over a passage from O’s soon-to-be-released memoir, titled “A Promised Land.”
GO KRISTI GO!!! YEAH!!!https://t.co/WHxYTrskbP

As reported by The Blaze, the memoir, to be released November 17, is scheduled to be the first of a two-part series released by Penguin Random House, which paid a $65 million advance to Barack and Michelle Obama for the rights to publish both their memoirs. [Rolling-eyes emoji]
Hmm. I wonder how much of that $65 million Mr. and Mrs. Martha’s Vineyard plan to donate to Chicago’s Southside, their old haunt, where streets run red with the blood of black men shot to death by other black men every weekend — but I digress.
In one of several excerpts from the book released to the Washington Examiner, Obama suggested that Donald Trump’s 2016 election was in part because Americans “were spooked (of course he intended the pun) by a black man in the White House” — which he partially blamed on former Alaska governor and John McCain’s vice-presidential running mate Sarah Palin for creating racial tension and “wild conspiracy theories.”
“Through Palin, it seemed as if the dark spirits that had long been lurking on the edges of the modern Republican Party — xenophobia, anti-intellectualism, paranoid conspiracy theories, and antipathy toward Black and brown folks — were finding their way to center stage.”
Takes brass ones, doesn’t it?
But Noem took exception with O’s suggestion that the “promise of America” has not been fulfilled. (Michelle Obama was seen nodding furiously in the background. [sarc])
“Across the nation, people from all walks of life have poured into the streets to protest the deaths of unarmed Black men and women at the hands of the police. Perhaps most troubling of all, our democracy seems to be teetering on the brink of crisis—a crisis rooted in a fundamental contest between two opposing visions of what America is and what it should be; a crisis that has left the body politic divided, angry, and mistrustful, and has allowed for an ongoing breach of institutional norms, procedural safeguards, and the adherence to basic facts that both Republicans and Democrats once took for granted.”
Spare us the faux intellectualism, O. Besides being elected president of the United States — twice, and primarily by white Americans — you were handed a $65 million advance to tell us how “racist” and “imperfect” we are. Does that strike you at all as hypocritical as hell?
“What a ridiculous message,” Noem tweeted.
“What a ridiculous message. Obama had 8 years, including 2 with full control of Congress. He sent our jobs to China, left our healthcare system in disarray, our foreign policy in shambles & our people divided. Instead of blaming Trump, Obama should consider what led to 2016.”
Memo to Biden supporters: Congrats for bringing that back to America. Well done. [sarc]

Someone else disgusted by Obama’s book is conservative author, commentator, and activist Candace Owens, who on Friday night called the former president “despicable” during an appearance on Fox News with host Sean Hannity. As reported by Fox News, Owens said Obama was “the first president who left the White House hating America.”
“It felt like we finally had arrived at a place in this country where we could put the past in the past. Barack Obama became the president of the United States because White Americans supported him.
“And rather than show some unity, rather than show some respect for this country that gave him literally everything he has, he turns his back … and says, ‘Look at this despicable country. It’s broken.’ “He is the first president that has ever sat in the White House and come out … hating America.
“President Trump has spent the last four years making efforts to strengthen the Black community, doubling his support among Black women and “garnered 18% of the Black male vote.”
Daily Mail observed: “Candace Owens accuses Obama of hating America.”

Guess what, Daily Mail? Candace Owens was right. She was also right in going after the Democrat Party for continuing to play the race card, as contrasted by Trump.
“Do you think that [Democrats] could have the humility to pause for a second and say, ‘You know what, maybe it’s not because every single person in America is a racist.’
“People are standing behind Donald J. Trump because he is an effective and good leader who tells the truth and doesn’t … run on identity politics.”
Amen. Democrats have long been the party of identity politics. Purposely. Maliciously. Deceitfully. Democrats long ago learned that the only way they win the presidency is by turning Americans against one another; by class, race, sexual preference (yes, Mazie Hirono and Merriam-Webster, sexual preference), and whatever else it takes to “win.”
Incidentally, those of us who read Obama’s 2004 memoir titled “Dreams from My Father” learned everything we needed to know about the globalist; everything we needed to know about a man who believes that America is not only no more “exceptional” than any other country; but is, in many ways, in his eyes, far worse than most.
As was the case with how his globalist father before him, growing up in colonial Africa, viewed the then-British Empire, Obama views America as a country that only achieved what it achieved at the expense of the rest of the world; only achieved what it achieved through slave labor; only achieved what it achieved by ripping success away from others. How “odd” that today’s Democrat Party believes exactly as does Barack Hussein Obama and his long-departed anti-colonialist pops. Truth? Not odd in the least.
