Hypocrisy on Steroids: Obama Blames 'Right-Wing' Media for Making Americans 'Fearful of Each Other'

There’s a strong case to be made that Barack Obama was the most arrogant, self-centered president in modern history. The “smartest guy in the room” said “me, me, me” more times in one speech than an opera tenor warming up for an aria. Four and a half years after leaving office, Cocky Dude hasn’t lost a step.

Obama’s other most-recognizable “quality” is the height of his hypocrisy.

While blatant hypocrisy is the coin of the left-wing realm, nobody does it with more aplomb than the de facto head of the Democrat Party. (Sorry, Joe, you’re not that guy— not even close.)

In a CNN special titled “Obama & Amanpour,” O delivered a veritable masterclass on all of the above.

In typical Obama arrogance, the former president not only declared that democratic institutions in America and around the world have become “creaky,” he laid the blame at the feet of Fox News and other “right-wing” media outlets, telling Amanpour:

I do believe that democracy will win if we fight for it. Our existing democratic institutions are creaky, and we’re going to have to reform them.

Uh-huh. When Democrats say “We,” “commonsense solution,” “fair share,” “equity,” and other such left-wing jargon, you are not part of that selective “we,” and neither am I.

On the contrary, when O talks about “We,” he means “We leftists,” because as a conservative, you’re not only too heartless, selfish, and incapable of understanding the plight of disenfranchised people who have no voice [sarc]; you’re also nowhere near the intellectual level of Barack Hussein Obama, the greatest and most insightful intellectualist in the history of great insightful intellectualists. [Heavy sarc.]

O continued to pile it higher and deeper:

It wasn’t that long ago that I got a lot of Republican votes. It wasn’t that long ago when John McCain was the Republican nominee, and actively shutdown a person at a town hall was saying that I was an illegal alien, and bent on imposing Sharia law.

There is still a bunch of folks that are more politically conservative than I am on social issues on economic issues and who I consider good people and thoughtful people, I enjoy conversations with. So the polarizations that we have seen in international politics is not identical to what is happening on the ground here.

Uh-huh.

And it wasn’t that long ago when even Bill Clinton stood head and shoulders above the addled marionette in the Oval Office whose strings are pulled by radical left-wing handlers hellbent on destroying the America we grew up in, O. Moreover, how dare you talk about polarization in this country? Between you — Barack “If I Had a Child He’d Look Like Trayvon” Obama — and Eric “My People” Holder, your administration worked its ass off to divide the U.S. along racial lines from the nanosecond you entered office.

Au Contraire, thinks Obama. The trouble lies with bogeyman Fox News and right-wing radio hosts.

What is true is that partly because of where people are getting their information these days, the silo wing of information, if you’re watching Fox News, or following some right-wing radio host, or getting Facebook feeds within the bubble, the reality is different than if you read the New York times or watch your program.

And such fundamentally different facts, or what they think to be facts and the worldviews are so skewed, one direction or another it’s very hard for democracy to work, and the foundation, and other work, and this kind of misinformation, not the kind that we see him engaging in, and not just during election time, but the constant demonization of the other side and making people fearful of each other.

Again, laughable — and O couldn’t be more hypocritical.

Here’s more, via CNN —AKA: The Most Trusted Name in News™:

The former president offered a wide-ranging view of global democratic and political issues – including Trump’s indictment earlier this month, which he acknowledged sends a suboptimal message to the rest of the world.

“It’s less than ideal,” he said. “But the fact that we have a former president who is having to answer to charges brought by prosecutors does uphold the basic notion that nobody’s above the law and the allegations will now be sorted out through a court process.”

He said more concerning than Trump’s actions themselves is a broader effort to “silence critics through changes in the legislative process” or “intimidate the press.” He said those efforts are “right now most prominent in the Republican Party, but I don’t think it’s something that is unique to one party.”

“Having been president of the United States, you need a president who takes the oath of office seriously,” he said. “You need a president who believes not just in the letter but in the spirit of democracy.”

Finally, did you catch the chyron on the feature image? “Obama: No, GOP won’t rally around message of not painting the other policy side ‘evil.'”

Cojones. Brass ones. Apparently, CNN and Barack Obama “forgot” about Biden labeling Donald Trump and “extreme MAGA philosophy” “semi-fascism” — and worse.

And “evil”? The late Charles Krauthammer nailed it:

Conservatives think liberals are stupid, and liberals think conservatives are evil.

Nuff said; that’s a perfect place to end this one.
