The hapless democrats will never win another national election until they realize that America has rejected their crazy far-left agenda. Since Hillary Clinton’s “surprise” loss to Donald Trump in the presidential race, democrats have blamed everyone from white supremacists to the Russians, but haven’t looked at themselves and their product nobody wants to buy. Obama too is caught in this delusional blame game, naming Fox News as a major reason why the White House and Congress will all be under Republican control.
Obama did an interview with Rolling Stone and was asked why he thought Hillary lost the presidential race. While he did acknowledge that democrats haven’t done a very good job of reaching people, he ignored the fact that their message is in opposition to what most Americans think is important.
When asked why he thought working class whites turned away from the democrats and supported Trump, we get some vintage Obama bullshit:
“Part of it is Fox News in every bar and restaurant in big chunks of the country,” said Obama.
As you know, Obama is very hostile to Fox News because they don’t worship at his feet like the other news networks do. In blaming Fox News for white people voting for Trump, what he is actually saying is that network spread lies that stupid working class people believed and that cost Hillary the election.
Later in the interview he revisited this idea by suggesting that Fox and other less liberal outlets were broadcasting false information that was poisoning the electorate:
“The challenge is people are getting a hundred different visions of the world from a hundred different outlets or a thousand different outlets, and that is ramping up divisions. It’s making people exaggerate or say what’s most controversial or peddling in the most vicious of insults or lies, because that attracts eyeballs,” Obama said.
In other words, Obama would prefer that we only get our news from sources he approves of. There’s nothing even remotely fascist about that, is there?
Here’s the problem with Obama’s argument: nearly all of the mainstream media leans to the left. The major networks as well as all of the country’s top newspapers have a liberal bias and don’t even try to hide it behind the façade of impartiality. How is it that one single network, Fox News, was able to turn the election in Trump’s favor when the vast majority of the media was bombarding people with a liberal agenda?
And the truth be told, Fox News isn’t even all that conservative; they are fairly neutral. They just seem like a right-wing news source because they aren’t radically to the left like MSNBC and CNN. Essentially democrats like Obama hate Fox because they aren’t super-liberal cheerleaders like the rest of the media.
Finally, Obama was confronted with the idea that white working class voters rejected the Democratic Party because they focus more on silly social issues than job creation.
“This is not simply an economic issue. This is a cultural issue,” replied Obama.
I don’t know what you got out of that answer, but it seems to me like Obama, in his vague way, just said white people abandoned the democrats because they are racist.
The democrats have learned nothing from the defeats they have suffered since Obama took office. They have lost the White House and both Houses of Congress under his tenure because the American people demand prosperity and security. The only things the democrats are offering are higher taxes, more pointless regulations, and transgender bathroom rights.
