Barack Obama is back in the public eye, having recently sat down with CNN to rattle off his list of grievances against the Republican Party. In his typical smarmy fashion, he managed to pretend that the GOP is trying to “rig the game” of elections by having (gasp!) general standards at the state level. You see, if you can’t vote three months in advance by handing your ballot to a harvester, do you really have the right to vote?

Obama also weighed in on the cultural battle surrounding the teaching of Critical Race Theory in schools. Here was his response.

Barack Obama takes a jab at Republicans who are actively opposing Critical Race Theory:

“Lo and behold, the single most important issue to them apparently right now is Critical Race Theory. Who knew that was the threat to our Republic?” pic.twitter.com/HyghsGz6Ph

Just in case you had forgotten what a disingenuous hack this guy is, the above clip is a solid reminder. Obama’s game has always been to belittle his opponents even as he and his side fight with everything they’ve got to win on an issue. One could ask Obama why Democrats care so much about getting CRT in schools if it’s simply not that big of a deal. Of course, Anderson Cooper was never going to pose that question.

Regardless, this game the left plays where they fundamentally attack and try to transform the foundations of the country while at the same time insisting that Republicans are silly for caring is dumb. No one is buying this nonsense anymore. Perhaps the GOP of old would have been beaten into submission by ridicule, but figures like Ron DeSantis who are leading the fight against CRT could not care less about Obama’s faux-cool act.

In fact, Obama taking up this fight is proof conservatives are making headway.

They have now deployed former president Barack Obama to defend, downplay, and deflect from critical race theory.
