Obama Blasts GOP For Undermining Democracy On Anniversary Of “Insurrection”

SPjD0oDl

Now that Joe Biden has been president for almost one full year, Barack Obama can breathe easier knowing he isn’t the worst president of all-time. He’ll have to settle for that #2 spot.

On the one year anniversary of the January 6 “insurrection” at the Capitol Building, Barry decided to give his two cents.

Here’s what he said:

One year ago, a violent attack on our Capitol made it clear just how fragile the American experiment in democracy really is. And while the broken windows have been repaired and many of the rioters have been brought to justice, the truth is that our democracy is at greater risk today than it was back then.

Although initially rejected by many Republicans, the claims that fanned the flames of violence on January 6th have since been embraced by a sizeable portion of voters and elected officials – many of whom know better. State legislatures across the country have not only made it harder to vote, but some have tried to assert power over core election processes including the ability to certify election results. And those remaining Republican officials and thought leaders who have courageously stood their ground and rejected such anti-democratic efforts have been ostracized, primaried, and driven from the party.

Historically, Americans have been defenders of democracy and freedom around the world – especially when it’s under attack. But we can’t serve that role when leading figures in one of our two major political parties are actively undermining democracy at home. We can’t set an example when our own leaders are willing to fabricate lies and cast doubt on the results of free and fair elections.

Our system of government has never been automatic. If we want our children to grow up in a true democracy – not just one with elections, but one where every voice matters and every vote counts – we need to nurture and protect it.

Today, that responsibility falls to all of us. And on this anniversary, nothing is more important.

LOOK:

We can only pray that Biden serves a single term in the Oval Office.

From day one in the White House, the man’s policies have completely failed the United States – and he knows it but doesn’t care.

You know things are bad when even members of Obama’s failed administration have come out to blast Joe and co.

From The Daily Wire:

Michael Morell, former President Barack Obama’s Acting CIA Director, said during a CBS News interview on Sunday that the Biden administration’s actions in Afghanistan have “inspired jihadists” all over the world, and that the Taliban is already back to harboring al-Qaeda.

Morell responded to the news that Ayman al-Zawahiri, the head of al-Qaeda, had issued a video on the twentieth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks when asked by host Margaret Brennan if al-Zawahiri was living in Afghanistan, as a U.N. report recently said.

“We think so, which means that the Taliban is harboring Zawahiri today,” Morell said. “The Taliban is harboring al-Qaeda today. And I think that’s a very important point.”
