Excitement and agitation continue to build on both sides of the political spectrum as we near the inauguration of Donald Trump as the 45th President of the United States. Many questions are being raised as we near this new chapter of our nation’s history:
- What will Donald Trump’s first order of business be?
- Who will he nominate to the Supreme Court?
- Will he actually build the wall?
But as many questions as we raise about Donald Trump and his first term as President, there’s another side of the story that isn’t being covered: Barack Obama.
What are Obama’s plans once he is no longer President? If you are hoping that he fades quietly into the background like Bush, you’re probably going to be disappointed.
What’s the most likely retirement plan for Mr. Obama? Hold on and let me shake this Magic 8 Ball…
“All signs point to activism.”
Is anyone really surprised by my speculation? If you really look into Obama’s history, this is really quite predictable. Let’s look at the facts:
- He cut his teeth being a community agitator-excuse me…activist.
- He loves being the center of attention and takes every opportunity to run his mouth in front of a crowd.
- He takes every chance to point out the racism inherent in the system (Help! Help! I’m being repressed!).
- He has no qualms about using other people’s money to fund his lavish lifestyle (I lost count of how many times he went golfing and took vacations during his two terms).
His personality, fixation on race, and history all point toward a posh career as Al Sharpton 2.0. He will most likely get some gig where he can regularly show on Television to spout his rhetoric while putting out a few more books on his rise to fame and how much he did for minorities as President. Liberals will eat this up as they relive the glory days of our first black President while everyone else will largely ignore him.
With his credentials as President of the United States and a platform to spout his racist filth, he will continue to damage race relations while also undermining Trump and the GOP at every turn.
So will race relations continue their downward spiral for the unforeseeable future? It’s my humble opinion that it will not. While the left is hell-bent on dividing the nation in every which direction -race, sex, religion, class- many are becoming increasingly tired of this division and pushing back. SJWs and other extremist left groups will double down during the beginning of Trump’s first term, but the winds of change are upon us. If Trump focuses his time on fixing the economy, Obamacare, and immigration reform and doesn’t take every opportunity to rant about how bad minorities have it in the USA, I believe things will begin to calm down and open wounds will begin to heal, but only time will tell.
What say you, oh loyal readers?
Do you think will Obama assume a role as community activist on steroids or fade into the background?
Will race relations begin to heal during Trump’s term?
