Surely our first black president, of all people, is on the opposite side of those behind the white supremacist rally in Charlottesville?
Obama definitely cashed in on the violence in Virginia by taking a very public stand against the white supremacists and a subtle jab at President Trump in the process.
Well, the shocking truth is that while Obama and those behind the white supremacist rally in Charlottesville are certainly no allies today, he did previously have their vote.
It is with tremendous surprise that we’ve learned that “Unite the Right” organizer, Jason Kessler, perhaps the most villainous right-winger in America at present, was until recently a registered Democratic voter.
This bombshell revelation was first brought to light by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), a hard left outfit that is certainly no friend of conservatives or white supremacists.
The SPLC report reads:
Rumors abound on white nationalist forums that Kessler’s ideological pedigree before 2016 was less than pure and seem to point to involvement in the Occupy movement and past support for President Obama.
Regardless of Kessler’s past politics, the rightward shift in his views was first put on display in November, 2016…
As hinted at by the SPLC report above, Kessler was involved in some pretty radical movements during his liberal days, too.
For instance, his apparent participation in Occupy Wall Street.
So, while Jason Kessler today is swinging for the “alt-right,” it is clear that he was radicalized by the left.
And, as Kessler himself noted, this is actually a fairly common progression – young ideologues get radicalized by the hard left, become disillusioned with the liberal agenda and then bring their hate to the opposite end of the political spectrum.
The situation as a whole is unacceptable. But President Trump was right – if we don’t take a proper perspective regarding the left’s role in all of this, we will never end the divisions that are tearing this nation apart.
