In fact, in large measure due to Obama, race relations deteriorated during his presidency. Obama turned out to be Black Lives Matter Light. As Politico wrote in 2014, Al Sharpton, perhaps the most consistent race-baiter of the last half-century, “became Obama’s go-to man on race.” According to The Washington Post, Sharpton visited the Obama White House 72 times. Obama is idolized by liberals and leftists because he was an activist liberal whose goal, in his own words, right before he was first elected, was “fundamentally transforming the United States of America.” And because they love his cool, even-tempered, regal style. That style masks a demagoguery that far surpasses our current president. It was on display last week when he spoke at the Democratic National Convention.
