Incredibly, there was a time when some thought Barack Hussein Obama would unite America. They must have missed this 2007 speech to a group of black ministers at Hampton University — or maybe they just couldn’t understand his contrived Afro-accent as he praised the rabidly anti-American racist demagogue Jeremiah Wright and shamelessly exploited Katrina to sow racial discord:
Characteristically, Obama was lying through his teeth:
By January of 2007, six months before Obama’s Hampton speech, the federal government had sent at least $110 billion to areas damaged by Katrina. Compare this to the mere $20 billion that the Bush administration pledged to New York City after Sept. 11.
Moreover, the federal government did at times waive the Stafford Act during its reconstruction efforts. On May 25, 2007, just weeks before the speech, the Bush administration sent an additional $6.9 billion to Katrina-affected areas with no strings attached.
As a sitting United States Senator, Obama must have been aware of this.
But facts only matter to Jackson/Sharpton/Obama types if they can be used to rile up blacks against Whitey.
