Obama Referred to Trump As ‘Fascist’ During Private Call With Hillary Clinton VP Tim Kaine

Do they still see it this way?

At this point, it should be very evident to the nation that Democrats do not understand what a “fascist” is. Fascists shut down the other side by any means necessary. Clearly, that is not a tenet of the Republican Party. However, Democrats seem to have taken a liking to the political style over the years.

During a phone call with then vice presidential-candidate Tim Kaine, Barack Obama referred to then-candidate Donald Trump as a “fascist.” Now, maybe Obama was being strategic and placing keywords in Kaine’s ear for him to use on the campaign trail, but the fact remains that the left is clueless on most issues – especially surrounding Trump and the Constitution.

Former President Barack Obama has been casually critical of President Donald Trump but, it seemed, mostly resisted using the derogatory language of progressive activists to describe his successor.

According to “Hillary,” the documentary about Hillary Clinton and her 2016 loss to Trump, however, it seems Obama reserved his more pointed criticism for private conversations and referred to the now-current president as a “fascist” in a phone call with Clinton’s vice presidential candidate, Virginia Senator Tim Kaine — at least according to Tim Kaine.

CONTINUED:

The Atlantic reports that the documentary, which premiered this weekend at the Sundance Film Festival to mostly rave reviews, shows Kaine deep in conversation with Clinton over an exchange he had with the former president over Clinton’s low-key presence on the campaign trail. To reassure Clinton that Obama was on her side despite the criticism, Kaine claimed that Obama had called Trump a “fascist” in conversation.

Kaine said, “President Obama called me last night and said, ‘Tim, this is no time to be a purist. You’ve got to keep a fascist out of the White House.’

It’s pretty wild how easily Democrats forget history. From 2008-2016, there was no greater human being that ever existed than Barack.

Now, the 44th president is almost an afterthought. And what is the problem Dems have with Barry Soetaro, exactly?

It’s that he has told 2020 presidential candidates to stop going so far left. Even Obama knows you can’t win an election in America by running as a socialist.

Because of this, some lefties are labeling Barack a “conservative.”

WATCH:

“President Obama is a conservative,” @Swerdlick tells @smerconish.

Obama “believed in using government to change people’s lives…in a way that preserved the way his predecessors had done things and also that had preserved a traditional American sense of the American Dream.”

Reactions:

One problem we face in our current moment is that our pundit class appears to have an implicit theory of language and political discourse that goes roughly “lol words.”

Swalwell’s fart was smarter than this.

Modern liberalism seems to be all about topping themselves in a competition of the nonsensical

There’s only one possible result in that sort of sport — the participants lose their damn minds

It just goes to show that there is no low the left won’t stoop to tear down Republicans, conservatism, capitalism, and everything else that makes America great.

Perspective: Democratic presidential candidates still can’t figure out how to talk about the most popular figure in their party, @Swerdlick writes, and there’s a simple reason.

Barack Obama is a conservative.

Reactions:

This article, written by an austere religious scholar, was brought to you by the letters B and S.

Perspective: Whoever wrote this argument, whether it be @Swerdlick or his editors, *really* doesn’t know (or care about) anything about conservative political philosophy, nor do they care about the basic importance of semantics.

That’s some gaslighting at the highest level right there!!

Soon enough, he will become an Alt-Right figure in the minds of leftists.

They’ve been trying to move the goalposts of the political spectrum for decades. They are beginning to succeed. Soon, even a hint of capitalism will be vilified.

Apple Backs Down, Will Allow Parler Back on App Store

The news is seen as a major boost for the First Amendment.

Published

Free speech is a fickle thing, and precious too.  If we’re not careful, it can be stripped away but those who hide behind the claim that a “private” company can limit your personal freedoms. Twitter, Facebook, and other social media platforms are almost always the culprits here, bending the algorithmic reach of those with whom they disagree. Enter Parler:  A free speech app where only the bare legal minimum of content would be moderated. The platform became incredibly popular with an astonishing swiftness, but soon faced trouble from companies who had previously aligned themselves with Facebook and Twitter’s more controlling stance. Apple, who had previously booted Parler from its App Store, has now relented to the Constitution. Apple has approved Parler’s return to the iOS app store following improvements the social media company made to better detect and moderate hate speech and incitement, according to a letter the iPhone maker sent to Congress on Monday. The decision clears the way for Parler, an app popular with conservatives including some members of the far right, to be downloaded once again on Apple devices. The letter — addressed to Sen. Mike Lee and Rep. Ken Buck and obtained by CNN — explained that since the app was removed from Apple’s platform in January for violations of its policies, Parler “has proposed updates to its app and the app’s content moderation practices.” On April 14, Apple’s app review team told Parler that its proposed changes were sufficient, the letter continued. Now, all Parler needs to do is to flip the switch. The news is seen as a major boost for the First Amendment.

WATCH: NC Man Slings Rabid Bobcat Across His Front Yard

WOW!

For many North Carolinians, neighborhood living brings with it the peace of mind that the most invasive animals you might have to deal with are squirrels who are trying to rest in your attic, or raccoons hoping to fatten up from your trash can.  The Tar Heel state has some bears, sure, but they’re not often the pestering or dangerous type like you might see in the Pacific Northwest or parts of California. But one man this week got up close and personal with a seriously frightening creature this week, after it lunged at his wife from underneath their car. A disturbing video captures the moment a rabid bobcat attacks a North Carolina woman—and the moment her husband grabs it off her and throws it through the air. Kristi and Happy Wade of Burgaw were walking to their SUV to take their cat to the vet the morning of April 9 when the growling animal ran across the street and attacked, WIS-TVreports. After throwing it several feet, Happy Wade eventually shot it after it ran into the couple’s garage and then continued to charge, ABC 11 reports. A neighbor who had been jogging by at the time stopped to help and called 911. Video of the incident is simply unbelievable. https://twitter.com/nojumper/status/1383145940807163904?s=20 The bobcat was injured by Wade and later euthanized by local law enforcement.  An autopsy revealed that the animal was indeed rabid, and the family has been undergoing treatment for their numerous bite wounds.
