Snapchat’s Peter Hamby recently sat down with Barack Obama to promote his new memoir, A Promised Land.
During the interview, Barack Obama blamed the radical Left for all of the down-ballot losses Democrats racked up in Congressional and State House districts across the country on November 3.
But “Squad” member Ilhan Omar has a message for Barack Obama. And it’s not a kind one.
Barack Obama’s memoir wasn’t the only thing Peter Hamby asked the former President about during his Snapchat interview.
Hamby also asked Obama about the enormous down-ballot losses Democrats suffered this past election.
“You lost a big audience the minute you say it, which makes it a lot less likely that you’re actually going to get the changes you want done,” Obama declared, pinning the blame on the extreme positions pushed by the radical Left leading up to November 3 – specifically slogans like “defund the police.”
“The key is deciding, do you want to actually get something done, or do you want to feel good among the people you already agree with?” continued Obama, sounding eerily similar to the late Saul Alinksy, author of Rules for Radicals.
Of course, the “Squad” and other radical members of Congress are furious with Barack Obama for blaming the losses on them.
And they’re not being shy about it.
In fact, Congresswoman Cori Bush of Missouri, a newly-elected socialist, viciously attacked Barack Obama for his statement, accusing him of ignoring the multitude of black men supposedly murdered by racist cops in America.
“With all due respect, Mr. President – let’s talk about losing people. We lost Michael Brown Jr. We lost Breonna Taylor. We’re losing our loved ones to police violence. It’s not a slogan. It’s a mandate for keeping our people alive. Defund the police,” wrote Bush on social media in response to Obama’s comment.
And she wasn’t alone.
Founding “Squad” member Ilhan Omar also went after the former President for saying they shouldn’t use slogans such as “defund the police.”
“We lose people in the hands of police. It’s not a slogan but a policy demand,” said Omar.
“And centering the demand for equitable investments and budgets for communities across the country gets us progress and safety,” she concluded.
Is the fact that Barack Obama is now too conservative for Democrats a sure sign that they will suffer enormous defeats in 2022 and 2024?
