Former President Barack Obama has an irritating tendency to appear aloof and disdainful of anyone who holds different views from his, as if they are, of course, wrong, and it’s painful for him to have to tolerate their wrongness. But seldom has his timing in expressing that disdain been worse than during his recent campaign appearance for Democrat Terry McAuliffe’s flailing campaign for Governor in Virginia.

Saturday, Obama backed McAuliffe’s criticism of parents upset at leftist school boards by suggesting their anger is unjustified and not “serious problems that affect serious people.” He sniffed, “We don’t have time to be wasted on these phony trumped-up culture wars, this fake outrage, the right-wing media peddles to juice their ratings.”

That “fake outrage” to which he referred wasn’t just parents' outrage over Critical Race Theory, porn, trans propaganda and socialism being forced onto their kids. It was also about news that the Loudoun County School Board knew about and covered up two brutal rapes of young teenage girls in girls’ bathrooms by a “biological male” in a skirt (or as that used to be known, “a male.”) School officials reportedly moved him to another school after the first rape, where he raped another girl. Other sexual assaults in school also went unreported. Yet the school officials allowed the father of the first victim to be smeared as a “domestic terrorist” for getting justifiably furious at a school board meeting.

Barely had Obama’s haughty and dismissive comments hit the news than word came on Monday that the “biological male” had been found guilty on two rape counts against the first victim. The judge delayed sentencing until after the second case is adjudicated.

As you might imagine, the blowback against Obama’s highhanded comments was swift and fierce. One Loudoun County father called it “the most tone-deaf statement I have ever heard.” The director of education reform at BEST (Building Education for Students Together) said Obama was either being clueless or misleading the crowd, and that forcing politics down kids’ throats isn’t a Republican or Democrat issue, it’s a parents’ issue.

I’ll toss in my two cents by doing what leftists hate the most: applying their own standards and tactics to themselves. How DARE Obama deny those parents’ truth by seeking to invalidate the genuineness of their outrage? He needs to check his privilege as a rich and famous person whose daughters never set foot in a public school and who have armed Secret Service protection (but if other women carry guns for personal protection from “biological males” invading their private spaces, he wants to take their guns away.) He must apologize immediately and then be canceled anyway!

What’s especially galling about this is that as the de facto leader of the Democratic Party (technically, it’s Joe Biden, but come on, man), Obama heads up an organization built entirely on a mountain of fake outrage. Think about it: what successful policies do the Democrats have to run on? Their brilliant handling of the border, Afghanistan, the economy, COVID, crime, China, energy, etc. etc. etc.? No, putting them in charge for only nine months has already proven that everything they touch becomes a dumpster fire. The only thing they have left to run on is, “You can’t vote for those other guys! Sure, they actually know how to run things, but they’re racist/sexist/trans-homo-whateverphobic!”

It’s a big load of organic manure, but it works with some people. There’s a certain segment of the populace that will overlook all the existential threats brought about by Democratic rule if you scare them enough with stories about how the bad orange man and his followers want to call them by their unpreferred pronouns or make them use the bathroom that actually matches their own plumbing. But as the ugly reality of Democratic “governance” becomes more and more intolerable, more people are seeing through that phony scare tactic and the audience for it is shrinking.

For instance, Biden just hit a new low of 43% approval in Five Thirty Eight’s average of all polls.

And a poll of likely Democratic primary voters in New Hampshire, the first primary voting state, found that only 37% say they’d vote for Biden if the 2024 primary were held today.

For once, the outrage is real, it’s justified, and it’s aimed at the Democrats, where it belongs.

    While Obama was at Occidental College years ago he was a member of the Marxist club. One day he waked into the office of the President of this club, also a Marxist at the time, and asked this question: "Hey, what's the best way to bring America down, from within or without". I will not reveal who the president was, but he told this story at a fund raiser for a friend of ours who was running for the senate in 2008. I have never forgot this as I've watched the beginning of the destruction of our beloved country. Is this his third term?? By all appearances it seems to be, I fear. I must add that this president/speaker at Occidental, is no longer a Marxist! After much research he soon realized that Marxism is NOT the answer, but the problem here in America.

    We are to be guided by this former President who tore down our military when he booted out thousands along with VP Biden. WHY? The education thing per the parents is not important just go along as he sent his two daughters to a high priced private schools. Now lives in MarthasVineyard in his $17 million dollar home . Did not even go to Chicago his adopted home and his wives. Okay he can come to Virginia and tell them how they have to live? Abrams not that super liked in Georgia she is a wheeler dealer and the big money of Big Tech was behind her working to get in the two idiot Senators we now have and one look up on internet Sen Warnock a racist to whites and to Jews. so beware of what you wish for. We had a going economy until the Chinese Virus. WHY?

    What has changed and is destroying this wonderful country, only stands to prove what the Holy Bible said would be happening in the last days. The evil that is being brought on our children, the push for abortion in all countries, sponsored by us at tax payer expense and of course the closing of churches due to the Covid mandate, shows that Satan in taking over. We however know who wins the day. Christ Jesus triumphs.
