Unsurprisingly, President Obama has thrown in his lot with the far left radicals running rampant across the nation.
Speaking with host Steve Inskeep on National Public Radio, the president rushed to the defense of Black Lives Matter, the controversial group which has had numerous heated exchanges with police, bluntly stating, “Sometimes progress is a little uncomfortable.”
“A little uncomfortable”? Is that all Obama has to make of the riots that have devastated Ferguson, Baltimore, and countless other cities, to say nothing of the trust between police and the communities they work with eroded due to the hateful rhetoric emanating from the ranks of Black Lives Matter?
To add insult to injury, Obama lays blame at the feet of law enforcement, asserting that systematic racism still exists in the criminal justice system and needs to be accounted for, effectively blaming cops instead of rioters.
Of course, we’ve seen the inevitable fallout of the Black Lives Matter movement: thousands of student activists taking their colleges by storm, denouncing racism, sexism and any number of other isms. Although Obama tries to position himself as above it all, he tacitly agrees with the agitators’ grievances.
“Obama also weighed in on the controversies surrounding college campuses, demanding that artifacts on campus be removed for the sake of racial sensitivities.
The president argued that students had to be willing to listen to other points of view, citing a specific situation where Condoleezza Rice was blocked from speaking at a college campus.
‘What I don’t want is a situation in which particular points of view that are presented respectfully and reasonably are shut down, and we have seen that sometimes happen,’ he said.
NPR’s Inskeep specifically mentioned the Harvard seal based on the family crest of a slave owner, and a school at Yale named after John C. Calhoun, a defender of slavery.
Although Obama was hesitant to respond specifically to the controversies, he argued that campus activism was a positive development for universities.
“I think it’s a healthy thing for young people to be engaged and to question authority and to ask why this instead of that, to ask tough questions about social justice,” he said. ‘So I don’t want to discourage kids from doing that.’”
