CNN documentary: Republicans are racists for opposing Obama

A new CNN documentary about President Obama speculates that Republican opposition to the first black president’s big-government program was rooted in racial animus.

True to Mr. Obama’s legacy, “The Legacy of Barack Obama” finds plenty of time to bash Republicans.

“Did race play a role in the brick wall of Republican resistance to Barack Obama?” CNN anchor Fareed Zakaria asks at the outset of the documentary, which aired on Wednesday.

The two-hour primetime exposé, first reported by NewsBusters, features a who’s who of liberal pundits – many of them former Obama White House officials – who wholeheartedly agree that racism was a driving force behind Republican resistance to the president’s efforts to grow the size of government and centralize power in Washington, D.C.

After delving into Mr. Obama’s upbringing, the documentary cuts to a joyous scene at the president’s 2008 acceptance speech.

    If this is true, if the white Republicans are basing their opposition to the policies of Obama, then is not the same true of the animus towards GW Bush by the likes of Rangle, Mosely-Braum, Cummings and the rest of the CBC? Would not the opposition to the new Trump Administration be fueled by the racism of these same people? And what of the opposition to the Obama agenda by black Republicans? Or is that just “self loathing”? If a person voted FOR President Obama because he “looks like me” was celebrated by the media, and it was, then are they not condoning the racism of voting against the white candidate due to their race, making their coverage of those elections blatantly “racist”?

  • BOC says:

    The only person responsible for the greatest racial divide since before the Civil Rights Act of 1964 is Obama and the Democrats. Obama is the most racist president since Woodrow Wilson and FDR.

    There can never be an honest debate regarding policy with what now is the far, radical left without their injecting race into the equation. As their irrelevance grows by the day, it’s the lefts’ defense against the rising tide of change. Soon the old and moldy arguments the left always use when they’re not in charge regarding dirty air, drinking water,school lunch programs etc., etc., that will be heard from their Jurassic Park leadership.

    It’s laughable that the party of slavery, the KKK and now another monolithic Astroturf movement of racism, Black Lives Matter should point the finger at the oppositions’ view as racism instead of the fact that Obama is an overmatched, incompetent leader who put this country on a path of weakness and irrelevance.

    Again there is hope for the future with a President-Elect who has been wildly successful in the private sector and is placing successful like minded individuals into important cabinet positions within his administrations. Maybe now we can attempt to heal the racial divide created by Obama his DOJ, think Holder and Lynch and their blind eye cast at the constitution and the rule of law which has set this country on this course where murdering a cop is sport and making excuses for bloodthirsty Muslim jihadists killing American citizens had become the new norm for the U.S. of A.

  • CBUJAN says:

    The lefts only excuse they can use who defies Obama is racism, how about giving the real reason Obama’s lousy policies.

  • solog says:

    Look what Obama has done… many real and true Americans can agree with what he has or hasn’t done…morals, ethics and values go a long ways.

  • justinwachin says:

    My opposition to President Obama was not due to his skin color but to the policies he pushed. I don’t think it is right to murder babies in their mother’s womb. I don’t think it is right to bankroll an industry which has become fabulously wealthy slaughtering baby humans. With the Post Office and Amtrak as fitting exhibits, I don’t think government can run health care efficiently or at a lower cost to people. I don’t think we should support terrorist groups like the Muslim Brotherhood as they replace governments in the middle east with ones that are less friendly to America. I could go on. President Obama embraced ideas and policies that were wrong.

    I would suggest that many who supported this president did so because of his skin color. Some supported him because he shared a skin tone similar to theirs. Others supported him because they thought that would show they were open minded when it came to matters of race. Maybe CNN should do a follow up story on the racists who supported Obama.

    I don’t watch CNN. If it wasn’t for this story I would not have known about this show. The best thing Americans can do is to not watch CNN.

  • Tiger says:

    O is racist for never stopping BLM and for never going to the podium to stop the cop killings or never going to the podium to stop the rioters who are violently raging and were raging against Trump.

    The only racist and bigoted people are the Left because the only people they support are those who are the enemies of our country. They hate the military, Christians, White people and our Constitution and our laws.

    Who do they believe they are kidding the world has watched all our elections and they saw all the Wikileaks and they know the score. They are also having problems with the Left in their countries.

    1. gvette says:

      Tiger, Obarry was the one promoting cop killings!

      1. Tiger says:

        Amen from day one when he called the police stupid for going after his professor friend the intelligent in this country should have seen the writing on the wall and for the life of me I still don’t know how he won a second term. That has been the term that pulled the rug out from under everything normal and American in America.

        These people should all be held responsible for all the attacks we have suffered and will suffer in the future.

        1. gvette says:

          I’m sorry Tiger. liberals, and DemonRATS are NEVER held accountable! That’s part of the problem!

          1. Tiger says:

            Well O has been held accountable for the refugee crisis according to the international news and on his recent European tour he was met with rioters telling him to go home. LOLOL I so enjoyed that. But for the most part you sure are right.

          2. gvette says:

            I got a kick out of how gay Barry was treated. As for my news sources, I primarily only listen to conservative talk radio. Most people think that they are all opinion, but they have groups of researchers that actually dig into what goes on. Anyone with half a brain, know that most around the world do not like Barry. Nor do they trust him. I hate to use the new term, but most news outlets are fake news. yes, even FOX.

          3. Tiger says:

            Amen and nothing better than Conservative Talk Radio they have some of the best minds around and Bush used to invite them to the WH to listen to what they had to say about the pulse of the people.

          4. gvette says:

            What’s funny is, when there’s breaking news, It’s usually on there, before it’s on the others, Tiger.

          5. Tiger says:

            Gvette so true along with of all things some scandal rags. Anywhere but Main Media.

          6. gvette says:

            MSM is nothing more then a bunch of stenographers for the DemonRAT party. If you’re killing time, someday, just follow the money, and you’ll see just how much of it Barry’s pal Soros owns. The paper I used to get, the Syracuse post standard, I took the time to check it out. Syracuse is in central NY. When I got to the bottom, it was actually a leg of a paper out of FLA. Owned by Soros!

          7. Tiger says:

            Already there my friend aware of not only Soros but Prince Alaweed and his investments into our top colleges to teach ME studies, his investments in Hollywood and his investments and influence in all news including FOX.

          8. gvette says:

            Good. I see you follow the money also. Sometimes it’s not easy. I chuckle a little. There’s so much infighting at FOX now, It’s becoming a joke!
            Off subject a bit, but I see the gal, forgot her name, hasn’t been on for a few days.

          9. Tiger says:

            There are several who have left Kelly for one and now Stossel leaving and others. Finally going over to the other side where they belonged all along. Varney, Cavuto and Dobbs all I watch on FOX.

          10. Tiger says:

            Now you know how dishonest even FOX is Americans didn’t see any of this or hear about it.

          11. gvette says:

            Actually, yes. When Barry’s records are opened, if that should ever happen, people will see the truth. I’ll add, when it comes to the left, if the DemonRAT party ran an ape, they’d vote for it! You, and I both know that.

          12. Tiger says:

            They did run an ape, oh wait that was Michael. I await the barrage of hate speech coming my way with this comment. Nice to know it doesn’t matter anymore. They lost.

          13. gvette says:

            Yes, they lost. Now we can get rid of the zoo keepers in the white house. (Did say that?) Fake news keeps saying they are going to run Mooochelle next, but that’s not true! Well, according to Barry, anyway. For 8 years we’ve had to failed people in the WH. They were spoiled rotten growing up, and have never accomplished anything. That’s pretty sad, tiger. Like I said earlier, it sure is fun watching the DemonRAT party blow up. Oh, I’m sure you know. Barry is now looking into the russians interfering in our election. What an ass!

          14. Tiger says:

            Indeed neither one of them accomplished anything but when it comes to brains and actually succeeding in college Michael outdoes O all the way around. If he didn’t hate America as much as O then he might have a chance at getting into politics. But anyone, anything aligned or near O is dead in the water, poison to the country. Hopefully they will find themselves in jail through the efforts of a real DOJ and AG.

          15. gvette says:

            Don’t forget, she had to give up her law license, or she would have wound up in jail. I read the story.
            Now, I give Trump credit for keeping Preet Bharara
            as US attorney. That boy loves justice, and he’s great at it. I’ll toss out a name you won’t recognize, but Preet is the guy that put Sheldon Silver in prison. I think Barry, Killary, and a bunch of others had better be afraid!

          16. Tiger says:

            Looked him up thanks. Trump is keeping all “Warriors Against the Machine” in office.

            Preet Bharara. Preetinder Singh “Preet” Bharara
            (born 1968) is an Indian-born naturalized American attorney and the
            U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York. Earning a
            reputation of a “Crusader” prosecutor, his office has prosecuted
            diplomats and people in other countries.

          17. gvette says:

            Andy tried to stop him in NY, but it didn’t work. I think Any was getting nervous. I’ve read where Preet is going to look into the Clinton foundation. We’ll see.

          18. Tiger says:

            The FBI has 4 ongoing investigations into the Foundation and there are several Private firms that are also investigating it. Trump said he will not interfere with any investigations. The woman in Haiti who was investigating the Foundation and Child Sex Trafficking was killed two weeks ago, a bullet to the back of the head and called suicide. She is now one of 6 killed during this election.

          19. gvette says:

            I hadn’t heard about the death. I just know about the investigations. My problem with this, is these people are still Barry’s people, for what that’s worth. I have a low trust level for the FBI right now.

          20. Tiger says:

            Right that and still a worry to anyone who has any information.

          21. gvette says:

            Funny how anyone with an IQ over ten, knows the Clinton Family kills those that get in the way. Barry too, I think. We’re looking more like a third world country under the DeomRATS.

          22. Tiger says:

            Amen and this is exactly what they had planned.

          23. gvette says:

            I remember this well, Tiger.

          24. Tiger says:

            Oh and yes I heard O i s trying to make a Russian/Trump connection to charge him with something if he can and wants the results of the investigation in before Jan 20th. He is still in charge of the DOJ, FBI, CIA and Lynch. They are capable of anything including if all fails killing Trump or his children.

          25. gvette says:

            The only one I worry about trying to kill Trump might be Obama. I think back to the picture of Barry, standing next to his gand mother on her death bed, and wodered if he put a pillow over her face. Why, you might ask. Well, she’s the one that said Barry was born in Kenya!

          26. Tiger says:

            She sure was and Corsi and his teams life threatened when they got the goods on O in Kenya interviewing O’s relatives but thankfully Hannity was following the story and they were free to go.

          27. gvette says:

            Thank you for the link!

          29. Tiger says:

            From the article hope you read it.

            Yesterday the news broke that Jerome
            Corsi, author of “The Obama Nation: Leftists Politics And The Cult Of
            Personality; was being held in Kenya while his immigration status was
            reviewed. I did not initially cover this story because some of the best
            PUMA and patriot sites were writing articles about this. When I
            checked in this morning, I found that Jerome Corsi, by some freak chance
            of good luck is still in the news and realized that a post I reprinted
            for another great PUMA dovetailed nicely into this story. Please read
            on past the background information to the meat of this story. I am
            reprinting Spirited Politics’ heavily researched article because the
            public needs to know what is really happening behind the Jerome Corsi
            story, and why he was detained and deported. Once again, read and make
            up your own minds but remember, Americans are not as stupid as the
            liberals think….connect the dots folks.

          30. gvette says:

            Off subject again. Did you happen to see the movie “Hillary’s America”?

          31. Tiger says:

            Oh wow yes and everyone should.

          32. gvette says:

            i liked it so much, I bought a copy to share with others. As you’ve seen it, the reason I brought it up was, what Barry did to Dinesh D’Souza

          33. Tiger says:

            Right and now Dinesh D’ Souza and many more not being threatened by this fake DOJ and AG will do more videos and movies and many will write expose’ books on these rats.

          34. gvette says:

            I agree. It might be interesting to see what pops up, after January, Tiger.

          35. Tiger says:

            Oh gvette I am seriously concerned for Trump and his families safety the closer he gets to inauguration the worse this threat will be. Yes it will be wonderful for police and all to be able to enforce the law, for judges to give the right decisions, for us to have a good Supreme Court that only interprets the Constitution and doesn’t write law, for all the Coal companies, who already passed all the requirements for Clean Coal to get back up, for our oil reserves to be used, for our Steel and Aluminum and all to get back up, for cars to be made in America instead of these cheap Japanese crap etc etc etc and for writers to not get a bullet to the back of the head for writing about Hillary, for Whistle Blowers to come forth to a Real DOJ and AG and yes we might be able to drain the Pythons from the swamp and clean our the rest of the little snakes later.

          36. gvette says:

            No one knows for sure what might happen, and I think Trump is well protected. He knows what’s going on, and the threats he gets. The gal that helped him out is getting lots of death threats now.
            I’ve been listening to Trumps drilling plan. We’ll be punching holes all over the place, as it should be. (Remember the Bush family is tied to foreign oil)
            The other problem is the RINO’s in congress. They WILL try to stop him. Mitch has said as much. As it stands right now, Trump has a tough roe to hoe!

          37. Tiger says:

            As to Bush we have been tied to unbreakable treaties with the ME since the huge offshore drilling accident in California that sent Nixon into a rage. He capped our oil wells, stopped all new drilling and shut down the offshore drilling. The Saudi came in like flies looking for blood and made him an offer he couldn’t refuse, 1 dollar a barrel oil. Soon as he signed the treaties, bloodsucking diaper heads that they are they put in OPEC and then we had our first taste of their controlling our gas prices. Hard lesson and ongoing. But with Trump won’t be so easy. They will find out they don’t have an ax over our head anymore and as they usually do they will smile to our faces as they stab us in the back if they can.

            As for the RINO Trump will continue going straight to the people with the scoop of the day and most likely hold weekly speeches on his progress and name the names of those standing in his way when n the WH. They won’t like being named and exposed to the people via Twitter etc and they will mind their manners knowing Trump won and if they don’t watch it their backsides out next election.

            I believe he will take care of them and yes I fear for all of them. But how many they going to kill? Giuliani, General Flynn, Pence, Trump and all I mean how many? They will have the people coming after them with ropes and I mean ropes and gasoline and matches. As much as Trump and all exposed so are their vermin. Two can play the Killing Game.

  • Larry J. Overfield says:

    President Obama is a member of the human race with African ethnicity. He is not of another race. The Bible only mentions two races, the human race and the angelic race. I know for sure that President Obama is not an angel, that is unless he is one of the fallen angels, which very well could be true.

  • Anti-Unamerican says:

    Hey Libertards.
    The “growing big government and central power in DC” just might be the reason for standing against his policies.
    Democrats are truly self loathing creatures with no sense of reason or tolerance.
    They have become the ” Participation Trophy” antiAmerican party.
