The fact of the African American community waking up to the abuses it has suffered at the hands of Democrats for generations is one long known by those who have been paying attention. Today, even more are waking up to the false promises and coercion of our first black president. One Florida community activist, Leslie Wimes, took particular offense to remarks made by President Obama during his speech to the Congressional Black Caucus’s annual Phoenix Awards dinner.
Wimes was so offended by these remarks that she penned a scathing letter to him that has exploded across the internet. Speaking to Obama’s claim that not voting for Clinton would be a personal insult to him, Wimes wrote, “that stinks of the house Negro telling the field Negroes to go support the mistress,” according to BizPac Review.
It is no secret that many in the black community, while having liked Bill Clinton, do not trust, like, or even care for Hillary Clinton. And as the awakening of the black community continues, they are starting to see her for what she really is: a dishonest, pandering, and elitist politician.
Obama’s statements to the Congressional Black Caucus were intensely narcissistic. Instead of touting Clinton’s virtues (using the term loosely), he made the next election all about securing his legacy. Judging from the apprehensive applause throughout his speech, it appears some in the audience found it a bit more arrogant than Obama’s usual offering.
“I will consider it a personal insult, an insult to my legacy, if this community lets down its guard and fails to activate itself in this election,” Obama said at the Phoenix Awards dinner. “You want to give me a good send-off? Go vote.”
In an op-ed titled No, President Obama, Black America Doesn’t Owe You a Vote for Hillary!, Wimes teed-off on Obama as if she were driving the fairway at Augusta National.
“As I get older, I like to use phrases my grandmother used, and Mr. President, ‘you were smelling yourself’ the night you said you would take it as a ‘personal insult’ if we didn’t vote for Hillary Clinton,” Wimes wrote. “Whether you know it or not, the smell was pure garbage.”
Wimes, in a Politics 101 mini-refresher course, reminded our president that if African Americans are to support Hillary Clinton, it should be because they believe she is the better candidate for achieving societal advancement for the black community. Wimes jabbed her rhetorical finger in Obama’s chest, saying their decision shouldn’t be because it would be a personal affront to him. “Just like the Democrat Party doesn’t own our votes, neither do you,” she wrote.
“Should we take it personally that she called us ‘super predators’?” she asked. “Clearly, even though she has since apologized, that hasn’t been forgotten. Should we take it personally that the 1994 Crime Bill signed into law by her husband, and championed by Hillary Clinton, wreaked havoc on our community? Hillary Clinton hasn’t always been a friend to our community, so should we take it as a personal insult that you are now trying to tie our respect for you with a vote for her?”
Wimes likened Obama’s coercion to that of a domestic violence abuser who mentally abuses his or her spouse by holding the definition of love to a desired action or declaration.
Wimes, a Democrat, wrote of Clinton’s past disparaging remarks, her hollow support of the Black Lives Matter movement, and the fact that for Clinton’s entire political career she has used black surrogates to “carry her water” in the community.
“No, President Obama, I don’t think we owe you anything. Our debt to you, if we ever had one, is more than paid in full,” Wimes wrote. “Using the line that black people not voting for her is an insult to you…stinks of the house Negro telling the field Negroes to go support the mistress or we all are goin’ get in trouble.”
Recently conducted polls indicate a mammoth transition in black voter support from Hillary Clinton to Donald Trump. As these voters awaken to Democrat abuses, they are taking Trump up on his “what have you got to lose” challenge. The fact is they don’t have anything to lose because of what the Democrats haven’t done for them thus far.
Now, we have to make sure Trump’s policies actually affect the societal change he promises. If they don’t, Republicans will lose the African American vote for the next 100 years—guaranteed.
