Right now Democrats have total control of the levers of power in Washington.
Many Americans are worried about what that means.
And Barack Obama let one truth slip that will leave you red with rage.
Like all Democrats, Barack Obama’s latched on to the narrative that the Republican Party is pushing to restrict the right to vote by passing election integrity laws in states across America.
This is not true as no one is losing the right to vote.
Republicans argue these laws are necessary to increase confidence in elections and popular vote.
Polling data shows overwhelming numbers of Americans – including black and Hispanic Americans – support voter ID laws.
In an event at the Economic Club of Chicago Obama attacked election integrity laws and illegitimate power grabs.
Obama declared this was an existential threat for the Democrat Party.
“That’s the kind of dangerous behavior that we’re going to have to push back on.” Obama added.
Obama also brought up a growing concern many Republicans have by calling on corporate America to step and wage economic war on red states that want to pass election integrity laws.
“I think the corporate community has a responsibility to at least call folks out on that. Because that transcends policy,” Obama declared “This really has to do with the basic rules by which we have all agreed to keep this diverse and multiracial democracy functioning.”
The most high profile example of “woke” corporations enforcing the Democrat Party’s agenda was Major League Baseball yanking the 2021 All Star Game out of Atlanta in protest over the state’s new election integrity legislation.
Obama claimed laws that required voter ID and cut back on the emergency mail in voting provisions put in place because of the coronavirus were somehow “rigging” elections.
“Are we going to stick to those rules or are we going to start rigging the game in a way that breaks it?” Obama asked. “And that’s not going to be good for business, not to mention not good for our soul.”
Democrats lean on nonstate actors like corporations because it makes it look like nonpartisan institutions are rallying to the left’s cause and Republicans are far outside the mainstream.
Obama told an audience that pressuring companies to take more political stands would be a featured part of the Democrat Party playbook moving forward.
This carries some risk for the left as polls show the American people oppose “woke” corporations flexing their political muscle.
Americans on the political right feel like every cultural and political institution is aligned against them.
The left runs academia, Hollywood, the media – and increasingly – pro sports and corporate America.
And Barack Obama is making it clear that the left is going to leverage this reality to maximum effect.
