(Liberty Bell) – Former President Barack Obama has once again fallen in line with the typical employment of the left’s favorite strategy, playing the infamous race card in order to try and discredit legitimate criticism by the Republican Party of completely unopposed illegal immigration. Apparently, if you think that people should enter your country the legal way, as opposed to just flooding over the border unchecked and breaking our laws, you hate brown people. That’s how liberals try to paint it anyway.
The Western Journal says Obama made a series of remarks on Sunday while holding a question and answer session at the L’Attitude conference in San Diego, which is an event that is held for Latino business professionals.
“Right now, the biggest fuel behind the Republican agenda is related to immigration and the fear that somehow America’s character is going to be changed if people of darker shades, there are too many of them here,” the former president said, according to The San Diego Union-Tribune.
Obama then made the claim that right-leaning media outlets, along with GOP politicians, were doing nothing more than fear mongering by pushing a “conspiracy theory” about racial minorities replacing white Americans.
“You hear it on hard-right media. You hear it from candidates and politicians,” Obama stated. “You hear things like ‘Great Replacement Theory.’ I mean, this is not subtle. Unless we’re able to return to a more inclusive vision inside the Republican Party, it’s going to be hard to get a bill done.”
What Obama is conveniently leaving out here is that the “Great Replacement Theory” he and the rest of the left continue to accuse the right of buying into was actually created by Theodore Bilbo, the former governor of Mississippi who went on to serve as a senator. Guess what? He was a Democrat.
In Bilbo’s book, “Take Your Choice: Separation or Mongrelization,” written in 1947, he issued a warning that Western civilizations, such as the United States for example, would ultimately end up being annihilated by mass dilution and the replacement of white-majority populations. Wow. Such a progressive, loving, tolerant belief, right?
As is typical for the radical left, the Democrats, along with their propaganda creators in the mainstream media have flipped the truth into a narrative that tries, aggressively, to tie the Great Replacement Theory to the GOP.
That’s what Obama was doing when he made his comments during the L’Attitude conference.
“When you have that kind of rhetoric floating around out there, we’ve seen in history that is dangerous rhetoric,” the former president went on to say during the session, according to the Union-Tribune.
“It’s dangerous wherever it appears and it’s dangerous here in the United States. It’s not part of what’s best in us,” Obama continued “It’s not part of what makes this country exceptional.”
Obama then pushed for higher levels of Hispanic participation in elections, explaining that they could potentially flip the very red state of Texas if they showed up to vote in large numbers. And this, folks, is likely one of the reasons the left is gung-ho about open borders. Let illegal migrants flood into the country, butter them up with free stuff, then get them to the polls. They are using people as votes. How dehumanizing.
“If Latinos in Texas voted at the same rate as Latinos in Colorado, Texas would be a blue state,” Obama proclaimed.
Here’s the thing that Obama and many other Democrats don’t get. There are tons of Hispanic individuals that support the GOP on this issue and are opposed to illegal immigration.

“According to an April 2021 Pew poll, 44 percent of Hispanics surveyed said ‘illegal immigration is a very big problem in the country today,'” the Western Journal said. “If Obama were so enthusiastic about illegal immigration, he could have tried to pass a law during his two terms as president to legalize all immigration into the United States. But he didn’t.”
Obama actually championed strong borders in the early stages of his political career. If we applied the former president’s reasoning, he would be essentially declaring himself a racist.
“You know, we are a generous and welcoming people here in the United States, but those who enter the country illegally and those who employ them disrespect the rule of law, and they are showing disregard for those who are following the law,” he remarked.
“We simply cannot allow people to pour into the United States undetected, undocumented, unchecked and circumventing the line of people who are waiting patiently, diligently and lawfully to become immigrants in this country,” he commented at the time.
“So, that’s why we need to start by giving agencies charged with border security new technology, new facilities and more people to stop, process and deport illegal immigrants,” Obama stated.
The hypocrisy is strong, right?
This is a stance Obama actually held while serving as president as well.
“Ultimately, our nation — like all nations — has the right and obligation to control its borders and set laws for residency and citizenship,” he went on to say during a July 1, 2010, speech. “And no matter how decent they are, no matter their reasons, the 11 million who broke these laws should be held accountable.”
According to the Obama of today, such language is “dangerous rhetoric.”
