Obama Celebrates 4th of July By Bashing Wealthy White People

The president obviously learned something from his racist pastor and mentor.

President Obama celebrated the 4th of July this year by bashing those wealthy white people who had their rights before anyone else.

The AP reported:

Calling the Declaration of Independence more than words on an aging parchment, President Barack Obama marked the Fourth of July on Sunday by urging Americans to live the principles that founded the nation as well as celebrate them.

“This is the day when we celebrate the very essence of America and the spirit that has defined us as a people and as a nation for more than two centuries,” Obama told guests at a South Lawn barbecue honoring service members and their families.

“We celebrate the principles that are timeless, tenets first declared by men of property and wealth but which gave rise to what Lincoln called a new birth of freedom in America—civil rights and voting rights, workers’ rights and women’s rights, and the rights of every American,” he said. “And on this day that is uniquely American we are reminded that our Declaration, our example, made us a beacon to the world.”

At least he refrained from calling our forefathers the “Fondling Fathers” like they do at his old church.

Common American Journal’s readers who have been watching Glenn Beck’s “Founders’ Fridays” on Fox News Channel understand that the President’s grasp of history is not an accurate, factual one. But from Beck’s programs we’ve come to understand that Progressive public education has purposely erased and distorted much of our history. Many of our Founders and signers of the Declaration were men who could barely make ends meet. Blacks in the New England and Mid-Atlantic states fought and worshiped beside whites in the early years of our nation’s history. Women were also recognized for their contributions to the country’s fight for independence.

But that narrative doesn’t support the Progressive agenda of “divide and conquer.” We find this speech to be hypocritical at best, delivered by a wealthy man who is half white and who has had the privilege to be educated at some of the most elite institutions in the United States.

After this speech, the President played a round of golf, according to a report on Twitter by CBS reporter Mark Knoller. We asked him on Twitter did he know how many rounds Obama has played since mid-April when the Deepwater Horizon platform first exploded in the Gulf of Mexico on 20 April:

Mark, how many rounds of golf has the president played since the Deepwater disaster in April? Any idea?…

Mr. Knoller was very gracious and actually replied:

8 times.

By our reckoning, 20 April to 4 July is ten and a half weeks.

Thankfully in America golf is no longer a sport exclusively enjoyed by wealthy white males.
