The best part of the Obama era was all the racial healing.

Remember that alt.right is the problem; not people who have, you know, actually spearheaded a movement that created an environment where actual people were actually murdered while actually doing their job to protect people.

//By contrast, President Obama sought a “post-racial, bridge-building society,” according to New York Times reporter Peter Baker. Obama’s post-racial efforts have now “given way to an angry, jeering, us-against-them nation,” writes Baker, in a front-page “news” story.

Tell that valedictory for “post-racial bridge-building” to police officers, who have been living through two years of racialized hatred directed at them in the streets, to the applause of many Democratic politicians.

Black Lives Matter rhetoric consists of slogans like: “CPD [Chicago Police Department], KKK, how many children did you kill today?,” “F–k the police” and “Racist, killer cops.” Officers have been assassinated by Black Lives Matter-inspired killers who set out to kill whites in general and white police officers in particular.

Gun murders of law enforcement officers are up 67 percent this year through Nov. 23.

Obama welcomed Black Lives Matter activists several times to the White House. He racialized the criminal justice system, repeatedly accusing it of discriminating, often lethally, against blacks. At the memorial service for five Dallas police officers gunned down in July 2016, Obama declared that black parents were right to fear that “something terrible may happen when their child walks out the door” — that the child will be shot by a cop simply for being “stupid.”

Obama put Brittany Packnett, a leader of the Black Lives Matter movement, on his President’s Task Force on 21st Century Policing. Packnett’s post-election essay on Vox, “White People: what is your plan for the Trump presidency?,” is emblematic of the racial demonology that is now core Democratic thinking. Packnett announces that she’s “tired of continuously being assaulted” by her country with its pervasive “white supremacy.” She calls on “white people” to “deal with what white people cause,” because “people of color have enough work to do for ourselves — to protect, free, and find joy for our people.”//
