Santorum on Obama's Racial Divisiveness: 'He Did It Over and Over Again'

8.5k views

Former President Barack Obama divided the country into as many segments of the population as he could while in the Oval Office. Perhaps the biggest impact he had on American society — by using his divisive, Socialist agenda — was to reignite race wars given any chance.

Former Republican Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum faced the extremely tough task of trying to speak some truth among a CNN panel full of President Trump haters during Sunday’s edition of CNN’s “State of the Union,” facing off against MoveOn.org Senior Adviser and National Spokesperson Karine Jean-Pierre.

When Jean-Pierre — or any of the other panelists — claimed Trump has divided the country and awoken racists from their apparent slumber, not one of them were interrupted. When Santorum mentioned Obama's record of racially dividing the country, however, he was consistently talked over by Jean-Pierre.

“Every time there was a controversy with someone of color was involved, he took the side, many times, against the police,” Santorum said. “He did it over and over and over again. President Obama was to many people out there someone who could have come together, brought this country together.”

Is he wrong? How many times did we all feel that Obama shouldn't have taken sides in a particular situation? 

Here’s video of the segment (Santorum’s Obama comments come near the end):

 

Santorum definitely had a point. Obama continually divided the country under the guise of unity. It was a great ruse that fooled people into voting for him — twice.
