Video of former president Obama slamming Jesus and mocking the Bible has struggled to go viral. That struggle is because it’s being taken down just as fast as it’s shared. Social media, in particular, has worked to suppress the video from public view because it ‘misrepresents Obama’ as a person.
In other words; it makes Obama ‘look bad’.
The then young senator openly bashed the Bible and said that America is not a Christian country. Now that the video has found its way into the hands of the public the left is working tirelessly to take it down.
This, in combination with the photographer coming out about a suppressed photo of Obama and Louis Farrakhan, is more than enough to prove Obama did not have American values in mind
The image of Obama and Farrakhan has provoked a strong response from Obama opponents, who accused Muhammad, Farrakhan and “the media” of trying to protect Obama.
In a tweet, Jonathan Greenblatt, the national director of the Anti-Defamation League, called on Obama to publicly denounce Farrakhan.
“Over his career, [Barack Obama] has denounced the bigotry of Farrakhan,” Greenblatt said in a tweet. “Time to do so again. Leaders always should make sure that there’s no doubt: America is no place for those who advocate #antisemitism or hate.”
Kelly McBride, vice president of the Poynter Institute and an expert on journalism ethics, said the issue of publishing the photo is not that cut and dried, considering that Muhammad was working for Farrakhan’s newspaper. She said there were several considerations, including the relevance and context of the meeting.
Former President Barack Obama is on the campaign trail, stumping for Democratic candidates in a midterm election in which he says our very democracy is at stake. And many conservative politicians and pundits were happy to get the chance to relive the Obama years and point to what they perceive as his failures in office.
Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said in response to Obama’s speech that, “The more former President Obama speaks about the ‘good ol years’ of his presidency, the more likely President Trump is to get re-elected.”
Former Trump adviser Sebastian Gorka said Obama’s “whole eight-year presidency was an embarrassment when it comes to everything from the economy to national security.”
