Tucker Carlson lashes out at Obama: “One of the sleaziest and most dishonest figures” in US political history

It had to be said. Hussein Obama = scumbag in chief!

 

Tucker Carlson calls Obama ‘one of the sleaziest and most dishonest figures’ in US political history

Carlson also described the former president as “a greasy politician” for calling on Congress to pass a new Voting Rights Act and to eliminate the filibuster, which Obama described as a relic of the Jim Crow era that disenfranchised Black Americans, in order to do so.

Barack Obama, one of the sleaziest and most dishonest figures in the history of American politics, used George Floyd’s death at a funeral to attack the police,” Carlson said before showing a segment of Obama’s remarks.

Obama gave lengthy remarks about Lewis at Thursday’s funeral, but the part that got the most attention was his vehement push for Congress to pass a new Voting Rights Act, which was an issue that Lewis had pursued. The Supreme Court in 2013 struck down the heart of the 1965 law, allowing nine states, mostly in the South, to change their voting laws without federal approval.

“Bull Connor may be gone. But today we witness with our own eyes police officers kneeling on the necks of Black Americans. George Wallace may be gone. But we can witness our federal government sending agents to use tear gas and batons against peaceful demonstrators,” Obama said.

Conner was the commissioner of public safety in Birmingham, Ala., and in the 1960s directed the use of fire hoses and attack dogs on people demonstrating for civil rights. He’s since become a symbol of that era’s most racist leaders.

Carlson cut off the clip at that point with his own commentary, decrying Obama for comparing today’s police officers to such a noxious historic figure.

“Bull Connor?” Carlson stated. “The country falling apart, riven by racial strife and tribalism, and one of the most respected people in the whole country decides to pour gasoline on that and compare the police to Bull Connor? As if America or Minneapolis is like Birmingham, Ala., in 1963? It’s insane. It’s reckless.”

“Of course, Obama doesn’t care. It’s only about November and the coming election,” Carlson said.

Protests and demonstrations in favor of reforming police and addressing racial equality broke out across the country after the death of Floyd, who was killed after a police officer knelt on his neck for nearly nine minutes as Floyd said he could not breath and asked for help.

The killing has been described as a modern-day lynching that evoked the worst episodes of the 1960s and before, and all of the officers involved face criminal charges, with one facing a second-degree murder charge.

Obama went on with his remarks to call for the passage of the new voting rights measure.

“Once we pass the John Lewis Voting Rights Act, we should keep marching,” Obama said. “And if all this takes eliminating the filibuster — another Jim Crow relic — in order to secure the God-given rights of every American, then that’s what we should do.”

The filibuster is a procedural tool that effectively requires legislation to be approved by 60 votes. It was long used to block legislation in the civil rights era.

Carlson, whose head writer resigned last month after it was discovered he had posted racist and sexist material on an online forum, accused the former president of exploiting the funeral to throw around “stupid partisan talking points about Senate procedure.”

“Imagine if some greasy politician showed up at your loved one’s funeral and started throwing around stupid partisan talking points about Senate procedure. Can you imagine that?” Carlson asked.

      • It was crooked Obama’s birthday on the 4th Aug, 2 days ago, 1 day ago in the USA.*

        Key and Obama
        -Both Born Aug 1961 (4th and 9th)
        -Both grew up without their father; single mother (although Obama was shipped to his Grandparents when his mother’s instability proved too much)
        -Both qualified at degree level in their own country about the same time
        -Both not even on the political radar 10 years before they became top dog
        -Both became Top dog in elections Nov 2008
        -Both stepped down end of 2016.
        The Post Truth World was established and locked in, in that period.

        *Of course given we don’t know where Obama was born we can take that birthdate as flexible .
        Even if it was Hawaii it is interesting that he only scraped in to Qualify as prez by less than 2 years as Hawaii only became a USA State in Aug 1959.
        For those interested in history the Maori have got nothing to moan about when they see how the US took Hawaii by force in the latter 1800s.
