Obama decries ’woke’ culture

Former President Obama took aim Tuesday at ’woke’ virtue signaling and cancel culture. During a discussion at the Obama Foundation Summit at the Illinois Institute of Technology, Obama explained that the world is more complicated than people realize and activists ’should get over’ their obsession with ideological purity tests.

2008: Calling Obama a "socialist" is secret code for the "n-word." 2012: Criticism of Obama is solely based on race. Tea Party are racists! (despite leader being a black man) 2019: "Obama decries woke culture." Too late, you created and benefited from this monster; you now must suffer like the rest of us "racists."

Pretty obvious mr Obama... quite a few of us have been saying this for some time, with the frequent response of "Nazi!", "Rascist!", "Hater!", etc. I bet that as that Woke movement continues they will turn on you and pull you down for not being perfect.

Fucking CNN. Just die already you flip flopping hypocritical wind bags. "It would be easy to see Obama's comments as a shot at President Donald Trump." If course it would.... for CNN.

If you are progressive and your values stay consistent, you will eventually become a conservative.

“I can’t make people not afraid of black people. I don’t know what’s going on. I can’t explain what’s happening in your head." Michelle Obama's words. Don't be distracted by her husband's publicly mild remarks. This is the mentality we're fighting. Self-styled liberals aren't fighting for progress; they're looking to place blame for historical grievances.

So Maher, Colbert, Ellen, and now Obama. Is there anyone else who wants to call out the dumpster fire that they themselves started? Does De Niro want a turn?

I find this striking. on one hand I enjoy attacks against woke culture. on the other, this is very much a "we're going to rig the primary so don't question it" statement

obama, like the rest of the democrats, technically is a fascist. "fascism is half socialist and half capitalist so it sits so where in the middle" benito mussolini 1928. "of course america will eventually have a fascist government but it will come in the guise of anti-fascism " Huey Long 1934.

Good on you Mr Obama, I appreciate that, but you're part of the reason for the culture war. You used it to your political benefit. We are now dealing with the repressions of what, I'll grant you as my CaC, you didnt have the balls to deal with because it was politically advantageous to deal with things the way you did. What you did has had great cultural repercussions. You can walk it back now, but how about you actually say what's wrong about it.

You know politics shifted too far left when Obama and conservatives are on the same page about social issues.

Clearly, somebody high up the chain decided that Obama's influence is needed more for procuring the black vote than it is needed for influencing "woke" SJW's at this point in time.
