Campus Free Speech

Barack Obama Slams Woke Scolds and Hashtag Activism

"This idea of purity and you're never compromised, and you're always politically 'woke,' and all that stuff, you should get over that quickly."

|

Former President Barack Obama had strong words for progressive activists whose tactics rely on shaming all those who disagree with them.

"This idea of purity and you're never compromised, and you're always politically 'woke,' and all that stuff, you should get over that quickly," he said.

His remarks came during the Obama Foundation Summit in Chicago this week. The former president expressed particular frustration with young people on college campuses who think the best way to enact change is "to be as judgmental as possible about other people."

"If I tweet or hasthag about how you didn't do something right or used the wrong verb, I can sit back and feel pretty good about myself, see how woke I was, I called you out," said Obama, criticizing this way of thinking. "That's not activism. That's not being about change. If all you're doing is casting stones, you're probably not going to get that far."

Obama noted that some people who do great things have serious flaws, while some of the people fighting hardest against the things liberals want "love their kids and share certain things with you."

This is not the first time Obama has made comments like this. In his 2016 Rutgers commencement address, he criticized fragile students for being unwilling to even listen to the other side. He's also assailed hypersensitivity and expressed disagreement with leftists who think "that those who aren't like you because they are white or they are male, somehow there is no way they can understand what I'm feeling, that somehow they lack standing to speak on certain matters."

As I noted in my book about campus free speech issues, Panic Attack: Young Radicals in the Age of Trump, Obama has always been an eloquent defender of the culture of civil discourse and tolerance. (Contrast that with Hillary Clinton, who famously said that half President Donald Trump's supporters were deplorable and should be written off.)

One of the best ways to combat cancel culture is for more liberals in good standing to condemn it. Obama scolding the scolds should always be treated as a welcome development.

  1. Well, good for him. I have a pretty low regard for Obama, but credit where it’s due.

    1. In Lefty-speak, he means targeting Lefties is bad and is hurting the cause. The Woke Scold must only be turned on non-Lefties.

      At this rate, Barack Obama might have his legacy torn apart because he was against gay marriage and never urged a Democrat controlled Congress to pass a Gay Marriage law that he could sign.

      THE HUMANITY!

      1. Name one demonstrably good thing Republicans have done for this country in 40 years.

            1. You would know, crackhead.

        2. Ended the Cold War. Balanced the federal budget for 2 years in the late 1990s. Busted PATCO. Broke stagflation. NAFTA, if you’re into that sort of thing.

          1. All quite debatable, unlike starting the Iraq war on false pretenses, causing the worst recession since the 1930s, causing fuedalistic-style wealth inequality justified by Ayn Rand horseshit, yada yada, making Donald fucking Trump the leader of the free world. They could have had a whole season of a reality show to find the most corrupt possible person as their leader, but they didn’t even need one.

            1. Isn’t the whole reason you phrased your question the way you did so you can debate any reasonable points people come up with? It’s pretty obvious. After all, what one person perceives as good for the country another perceives as the beginning of the end.

              So why should anyone engage with you on anything if you’re not going to act in good faith?

              1. TripK2 is the winner.

                All quite debatable, unlike starting the Iraq war on false pretenses, causing the worst recession since the 1930s, causing fuedalistic-style wealth inequality justified by Ayn Rand horseshit, yada yada, making Donald fucking Trump the leader of the free world. They could have had a whole season of a reality show to find the most corrupt possible person as their leader, but they didn’t even need one.

                This is all irrelevant to the question you asked. You said to “name one good thing Republicans have done”, and he did it. Instead of engage with those points, you decided to do this, “but what about this bad stuff they did?!”

                That’s a red herring to the original point, which he reasonably answered and in which you were BTFO’d.

                1. He doesn’t seem able to name a good thing Democrats have done.

                  Note: the judiciary isn’t, technically, the Democrats.

                  If Democrats never existed, slavery would’ve ended long before Republicans were obligated to slaughter a bunch of Democrats to end it.

                  1. They created the entire modern civilized world. A feat you guys have been working to undo ever since, out of pure spite from what I can gather.

                    1. You mean white guys created the modern civilized world? Sure. They weren’t democrats, though.

              2. I, in good faith, think Donald Trump is beyond ridiculous as a president, and anyone who doesn’t agree is a fucking retard.

                1. I, in good faith, think you are a fucking retard, and anyone who doesn’t agree is a fucking retard.

                  Am I doing it right?

                  You are boring, and an asshole.

            2. making Donald fucking Trump the leader of the free world

              I hate to break it to you, but you did that.

            3. causing the worst recession since the 1930s

              It’s interesting Tony whines about others accuracy but freely cited debunked mythology as his own positions. Even the role playing commenters make more sense than he does.

            4. The 2008 recession was mostly of the Dem’s making.

              1. Nothing like Dems forcing banks and lending institutions to lend to low income people who are higher risk borrowers or risk being sued for “discrimination”.

              2. You people will believe whatever you’re told to believe, won’t you?

                What a sad way to go through life.

        3. Name one demonstrably good thing the Left has done.

          1. 1. Run Hillary against Trump
            2. Cry about Election 2016 until Trump wins reelection
            3. Lose all news media credibility with most of America

        4. Hmmmm, while I don’t fit in with either party, why don’t we ask what the R’s are not doing instead:

          They are not promising to take more of my money to pay for someone else’s student loans.

          They are not promising to take more of my money to pay for useless and vague “climate action”.

          They are not promising to take more of my money to……….. you get the picture.

        5. I’d ask you to do the same for the Democrats, Tony, but we all already know you’re a fucked-up piece of shit who thinks depriving Americans of their pre-existing healthcare, starting numerous illegal wars to aid terrorists, spying on the whole damn country and actively working against the Constitution and basic well-being of American citizens is admirable:

        6. The opposed every insane Prog-crap thing Obummy did!!!

        7. Pissed you off.
          Ended the war in Vietnam.
          Worked on an end to the Demorrhoids’ illegal war in Korea.
          Worked to remove our troops from the wars the Demorrhoids started in the Balkans and Middle East.
          Supported Israel.
          Impeached Bill Clinton.
          Attempted to jail Hillary.

        8. The Republicans have kept the country from going full Great Leap Forward. I know that mitigating the damage is not as good as preventing the accident in the first place.

        9. JUST ONE??? Oh, how to pick from the 100’s that come to mind. How about I just wrap it up by saying –
          1) Fairly reliably to throw up barriers against commie’s who want to kill this nation (U.S. Constitution <- What it stands for).
          But if you want a more direct example of that – look no farther than the cleaver way Communist healthcare (Obamacare) was obliterated. Or tax-cutting the commie machine. Or stopping the "all holy" government from picking winners and looser by cancelling subsidies. Or individual freedom by deregulating. Or …… oh whoops sorry; just one huh?

      2. Poor Tony.

      3. In plain words he said
        “If I tweet or hasthag about how you didn’t do something right or used the wrong verb, I can sit back and feel pretty good about myself, see how woke I was, I called you out,” said Obama, criticizing this way of thinking. “That’s not activism. That’s not being about change.”
        “Using the wrong verb” is something the woke lefties do and he was addressing the woke lefties.
        Are you being satiric about your satire? This is too meta for me.

        1. Wrong pronouns trigger, not wrong verbs, but if said “wrong pronouns” the woketarians would be all over him. Same old word games from a total fraud.

          1. Yeah really good point. Wrong Verb Indeed! Very slick, as usual. I’m surprised he didn’t say “If you like your pronoun you can keep it.”

          2. I expect he doesn’t know the difference between a verb and a pronoun.

      4. LOL he clearly stated it was for everybody and not “left” or “right” wake the fuck up and listen instead of being a Trumpster.

        1. OK, Boomer.

    2. Grifter leading from behind.

    3. Yup.
      I’m not a fan of the things he’s done, but all credit where credit is due. Good on you, Obama.

      Also, the importance this kind of statement coming from the clerisy’s messiah cannot be understated. A million libertarians can bark about this until their throats bleed, but it won’t have any impact on stopping this nonsense like a word from Barack can.

      1. He won’t have any impact on stopping this nonsense either. 5 years from now the ultra woke left will consider him a tool of the right. Watch and see.

        1. Ultimately your right. The left are trying to move the Overton Window so fast and hard they’re going to need warp engines soon.
          But for the interim he still has far more cachet with woke soccer-moms, Hollywood perverts, journalists and “socially-aware” CEOs than all of us little “Practically-Hitlers”.

    4. “Like if I tweet or hashtag about how you didn’t do something right or used the wrong verb or then, I can sit back and feel good about myself: ‘You see how woke I was? I called you out.’” he mocked.”

      I like how he said “wrong verb” as if that is what triggers woketarians. His point would have been better made if he said “wrong pronoun” but that would would have triggered shaming by woketarians who would accuse him of not being woke.

      What a fraud.

      1. Or ignorant of the difference.

      2. Did you just assume my part of speech? I identify as a gerund!

    5. Civility is a good thing, and Obama should be commended for this. (I only caught part of the conference; the link to see Michelle didn’t work).

      OTOH, I’m not so sure “always” belongs in a description of Obama’s defense of civil discourse and tolerance. (See: “Punish your enemies”, “Get in their faces”, etc.)

    6. “It was all fun and games when I was king but now that the lunatics and the kool aid hair brigade are starting to eat each other its no longer funny. Seriously, guys, stop.”

  2. Coming from president “They can come for the ride, but they gotta sit in back”
    President “Elections have consequences and at the end of the day I won”
    President “They cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations”
    President “I have become a symbol of the possibility of America returning to our best traditions”
    President “I am absolutely certain that generations from now, we will be able to look back and tell our children that this was the moment when we began to provide care for the sick and good jobs to the jobless; this was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal”
    President “We can’t drive our SUVs and eat as much as we want and keep our homes on 72 degrees at all times”
    President “I want them to get out of the way so we can clean up the mess. I don’t mind cleaning up after them, but don’t do a lot of talking”
    President “I don’t believe it is possible to transcend race in this country. Race is a factor in this society. The legacy of Jim Crow and slavery has not gone away”
    President “That’s just how white folks will do you. It was as if whites didn’t know that they were being cruel in the first place”
    President “If you’ve got a business, you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen”
    Feel free to suck my cock you disingenuous hypocritical bitch.

    1. I like the “bitter clinger” remark the most. Fuck religion – especially Xtianity and Islam (the two most vile religions).

      1. The kiddie fucker once again demonstrates the intellectual and moral superiority of atheism.

      2. I enjoy hearing a messed up 14-year-old’s views on theology and history, as espoused by a fifty-year-old molester living in his mom’s basement.
        When your goto sources for history and religion are facebook groups like “I Fucking Love Science” and Bill Nye, you get erudite statements like Buttplugs.

    2. “I want them to get out of the way so we can clean up the mess. I don’t mind cleaning up after them, but don’t do a lot of talking”

      This is a good one too. The Bushpigs fucked the economy up and then tried to block Obama’s recovery efforts.

      1. If only Obama could have tripled the debt in 8 years instead of only doubling it. It’s a real shame that his policies took until 12 months into the Trump administration to actually take effect and grow GDP by more than 2% for the first time in a decade.

        1. You’re a fact-starved idiot.

          Obama GDP growth 2.9% in 2015 – Trump has not topped that in any year and won’t.

    3. SPB, the Pedo, was assigned to this article today.

      1. Go man your boiled peanut stand on US 41, you Trump Trash.

        1. Poor SPB. Go guy some of my “organic” fruits and vegetables.

          You should come to my family farm and see how we grow “organic” fruits and vegetables compared to regular fruits and vegetables.

          Thanks for the fuck you money from “organics”, SPB.

          1. LMAO as if buttplug could afford organic produce. His bitterness and seething hatred is entirely projection. He’s a white trash lowbrow piece of shit from a family full of white trash lowbrow pieces of shit who’d have starved to death 5 generations ago if it wasn’t for the closed shops and welfare programs for which he is so nostalgic.

            1. I’d like to pause for a moment and express my appreciation for every boiled peanut stand operator. Especially the one at the corner of Hwys 44 and 212 (Kinderhook Rd) in Georgia, and the one between Maggie Valley and Cherokee (Soco.)

              You people rock.

  3. This is one the the reason idiotic “true progressives” call Obama a centrist turncoat.

    Also his support of free trade, capitalism, a “Republican/Heritage” market-based health care plan, deficit cutting, tax cutting, and fracking/drilling.

    1. Barrack Obama was a centrist and a good President. He also benefits from the poor performance of his successor.

      1. Yes, unfortunately shitty progressives like Warren and Sanders helped block his free trade (TPP) and budget balancing (Simpson-Bowles) efforts.

        The Con Man can’t get a trade bill through Congress either though.

      2. Lol. The lefties around here crack me up.

        1. How you were beat senseless by the Fat Rush Stupid Hammer as a Canadian is certainly a mystery.

          1. No more mysterious than how you ended up the only man to see the inside of Samantha Bee’s cunt as an American.

            1. We consume each other’s sloppy sophist seconds!

              But he’s right. I do like me some Rush from time to time.

      3. “Barrack Obama was a centrist and a good President”

        Yes. Impressive policies like bombing Libya, droning Wedding Parties, politicizing the IRS and FBI, imprisoning innocent Egyptians to cover for Bengazi, Obamacare, Operation Fast and Furious, etc…
        So very good and moderate.

      4. Obama was a corrupt, incompetent, dishonest windbag.

    2. Obama, in a power move to assert his dominance, ran up the largest recorded deficit in the history of the country just so that he could lower it. The absolute madlad.

      1. Bullshit. the Bushpigs left him a $1.3 trillion deficit. He cut it to $450B

        1. He cut it

          You don’t actually believe that lie, do you?
          (Protip, he doesn’t. He posts off a Media Matters talking points PDF. Astroturfing is easy for the dedicated Fifty-Center)

        2. And you consider that an accomplishment?

          Haha. Obama leg humpers crack me up.

  4. Barack who?

  5. The guy sure is full of himself.

    1. To be fair, Obama always had Tony, Biden, and at least a dozen more Lefties up his ass for 8 years.

  6. He crosses his legs like a girl.

    1. Without piling on with stupid comments about how a former president crosses his fucking legs… I do not know how he does it. My anatomy simply makes it impossible to do comfortable on any chair.

      1. Michelle has them in a jar next to the bed. He was naughty in the bath house with them, don’t ya know?

  7. This is rich.

    This on a day a former undersecretary for Public Diplomacy in the State Department under his administration penned ‘Why we need hate speech laws’ in the WaPo.

    I’m pretty sure this “we believe in free speech….but” was a prevailing attitude during this reign of tired platitudes.

  8. He may worry that putting these activists in the public spotlight will cause a backlash and cause Democrats to lose elections.

    Best to have the activists doing get-out-the-vote drives and so forth, without getting too near the TV cameras. If the Democrats win, there will always be jobs for them in the Department of Telling People What do Do. But for now they need to lay low so as not to freak out the squares and clingers.

    1. It’s common sense as well. I’m sure he and most others realize that the activists just do damage and even though I’m not a massive fan of Obama I can’t deny he is intelligent. Him being the messenger to these people may work because criticizing him could be seen as racist.

      The “clean your room” concept has been around for a while because it’s the only solution. Even Michael Jackson had that lyric that went something like, “If you want to make the world a better place then look in the mirror and make the change.”

      He also had that lyric, “Your butt is mine”. At least his message had diversity.

  9. I think you meant to open this article with “Noted alt-right bigot and former President Barack Obama…”

  10. Being not Bush and not Trump, meaning generally, not Republican, has been good enough for any sane person these last couple decades. But being the only sane party around is jeopardized by the purity tests Obama refers to. For some mysterious reason, the psychotic religious fanatic racist party is the “default” American party and has been since Reagan rode in on his fucking dumb horse. Democrats can’t have so much as a bad hair day while Republicans are permitted to have literally the worst hairdo in the history of the world and being corrupt traitorous pigs before they’re called out. America, you are very stupid.

    1. Democrats like to attack their own. See Al Franken and Katie Hill – both forced out by their own party. Hill just just had a 3 way with a chick and her husband. Good on the lucky dude. Weiner just sent a dick pic. Franken did nothing.

      Trump meanwhille is rawdogging whores while his wife is in labor. Then admits to felony assault.

      Christian Values are GOP Values.

      1. Jesus forgives. In five years’ time, he’ll even forgive Republican kid diddling. I’d put money on it.

        1. Just gave SPBP a reason and hope…may switch to Republican.

      2. Yeah just ask Gerry Studds, Barney Frank and Bill Clinton how Democrats feel about pedophilia, buttfucking, and rape, respectively. If only those poor Democrats could catch a break from that right-biased media.

    2. Democrats can’t have so much as a bad hair day

      John Edwards agrees.

    3. Republicans are permitted to have literally the worst hairdo in the history of the world and being corrupt traitorous pigs before they’re called out.

      Haha, oh my.

    4. There was a time, Tony, when the president was Republican and some small number of democrats were anti-war, where Dems might have held the moral high ground. I don’t know happened to the anti-war movement, because it evaporated around the time Obama became president and continued Bush’s domestic policy of bombing the shit out of brown people. Now the Democrats AND the Republicans fucking love fighting wars we can neither lose nor win.

      On rhetoric at least, the Republicans win, since they are not promising to throw everyone’s kids under a fiscal bus.

      1. Foreign* policy

        1. domestic policy kinda worked too.

    5. Democrats can’t have so much as a bad hair day

      And… the indelible image of Katie Hill brushing her intern’s hair is back at the front of my mind. Thanks Tony.

    6. Tony’s mental health is waning, he’ll be in a home soon.

  11. >>”That’s not activism. That’s not being about change. If all you’re doing is casting stones, you’re probably not going to get that far.”

    47,000 texts at once –> a generation of phone-holders.

  12. liberals in good standing

    Honest question – is Obama in good standing with the far left?

    1. “is Obama in good standing with the far left?”

      Maybe someone should ask Tulsi.

  13. His remarks came during the Obama Foundation Summit in Chicago this week.

    I want to be president just so I can not start a corrupt foundation in my name after I leave office.

    1. Humorous, given the origin of your screen name.

    2. I’ve thought about that as well, but decided it would be more entertaining to start a foundation to raise money for women’s rights and then use that money to start a corporation that sells franchise rights to abortion clinics with me as the spokesperson. While the abortion rights would please lefties the obvious capitalism behind it would disgust them. At the same time our prices would be hard to beat and we’d have a television in the waiting room and really fancy happy commercials with one of those inflatable wavy arm things.

      1. one of those inflatable wavy arm things.

        That looks like a fetus?

  14. “This idea of purity and you’re never compromised, and you’re always politically ‘woke,’ and all that stuff, you should get over that quickly,”

    I can’t believe my parents voted for this conservative asshole.

    /Prog.

  15. All of this started when he was President, egged on by his intolerance of and condescension to anyone with different ideas. It’s amazing people are still pretending he’s a moderate when the only limit he ever accepted to far left plans was political reality.

    Moreover Soave characterizes these as “strong words” when in reality they are timid. All he’s saying is to find a better path to accomplish their far left desires which Obama supports.

  16. “Obama has always been an eloquent defender of the culture of civil discourse and tolerance.”

    smh.

    1. He paid lip service to it if it was calculated to improve his brand and image. I never in the eight years saw a single Reason article – unless someone can correct me – that claimed he was such an eloquent defender of civil discourse. Whatever that means.

      Was it the Trayvon remark? The police acted stupidly? Bitter clingers? How much is enough?

      This isn’t eloquence. It lacks judgment and wisdom.

      He was pretty cynical if you ask me.

      In fact, Justin up here acts in the same damn manner. The rhetoric is all nice and ‘unity’ but in policy and action he’s divisive.

  17. Obama knows full well that in 2019, he would have been able to get away with the lies, abuse of power, murder, nepotism, and corruption that he and his administration are guilty of; that’s why he doesn’t like “cancel culture” and “hashtag activism”.

  18. Obama would have no chance in the Dem primaries this year, unless he changed his tune. He’s way too conservative to crack 5 percent.

  19. It is 10 o’clock twice a day.

  20. “…Obama has always been an eloquent defender of the culture of civil discourse and tolerance….”

    “…The year was 2008. The candidate had a big lead in the polls going into election day. And in a preview of how petulant he would be act as Commander-in-Chief as it pertains to his treatment of the press, Barack Obama decided he didn’t like what three newspapers were writing about him, so he kicked its reporters off his campaign plane…”

    You’re a laugh-riot, Robbie.

    1. Compare to Trump….

      1. Compare what, exactly?

        Obama’s weekly closed-door meetings with his chosen members of the media in which he doled out talking points for the week?

        Blaming terrorist acts on Youtube to push his internet censorship agenda?

        Endlessly whining about how any disagreement with him was “obstruction”?

        Oh, I know. It’s when Obama illegally used the IRS to attack his critics, and then engaged in a massive cover-up, right?

        It’s funny how it’s not “Whataboutism” when done in defense of the Left.

        1. Your brain is done pickled, son.

          Stop watching FOX News.

          1. Tony, it’s your brain that’s pickled from listening to too much state propaganda. I’ve seen it before, it’s typical for leftists.

            1. FOX News is state propaganda you flapping twat.

        “Compare to Trump….”

        Let’s see, article about how Obo is just wonderfulless, and here we have someone whining about Trump.
        Have you seen your doctor about your illness, Lester?

    2. He also took Catholic nuns to court.

      And Title IX.

      Eloquent defender of anything my ass.

  21. Talk about apostasy and politically incorrect!
    Shaming and engaging in political purity are the very foundations of socialist totalitarian thought.
    Just look at the magnificent Cultural Revolution launched by a bunch of ass-kissing jerk offs in the PRC around 1966.
    Those who did not engage in political purity were justifiably shamed, purged and executed.
    Oh, if only this kind of revolution could occur here in America.
    Then, and only then, will we be able to enjoy all the delights and wonders of a socialist totalitarian state.

  22. Turns out Obama is a white supremacist? How did we not notice for all those years? I guess we gave him a pass because of his white privilege on his mom’s side…. or was it the patriarchy, who can say?

  24. Gee, wherever did they learn THAT behavior?

  25. This gives an opening, an opportunity for the one of the Democratic candidates for the presidency to have a Sister Souljah/anti-woke moment. They can use Obama’s comments as a shield when the inevitable backlash comes about.
    At this early point it’s very risky but I think it would give one of the marginal candidates a chance to move up. I doubt a Warren or Sanders would take the risk. Not now. Biden might. And some of the second tier candidates might.

  26. Talk about the kettle calling out all sorts of color

  27. “You should get over that quickly”.

    Don’t tell the rev. He keeps wondering why his army of angry young betters keeps flaking out on his silly “culture war” just when they’re soooooo close to “replacing the “clingers”! Hint: they grow up.

    Haha.

  28. Hey the clingers need to realize that minority + (D) = you can never be wrong or criticized

  29. Obama; trying to correct the very mob he and his cosponsors created… This is rich…

    I love watching the left eat itself.

    1. That is a very good point.

      The Weimar regime did not create the Nazis.

      The czarist regime did not create the Communists.

  30. This is purely anecdotal, but I’ve already seen Wokies in my social media feeds using Obama’s words as a reason why you should “hold your nose“ and vote for whatever democrat candidate makes it through the gauntlet regardless of whether you agree with their platform or not, because defeating President Orangeman is more important than Bernie getting shafted for the nom again.

    The logic goes like this: See? What Obama is saying here is that ‘Pobody’s Nerfect’, so if per chance Bernie doesn’t get the nom, you should look past it and vote for Biden because Obama just said that no candidate is going to be completely perfect on all the issues. What’s really important here is that Orangeman == Hitler, so don’t write in Bernie if he doesn’t get it, because then you will be forcing us to say 4 more years of MAGA is 100% YOUR fault.

    Wish I was kidding.

  31. I like the “bitter clinger” remark the most. Fuck religion – especially Xtianity and Islam (the two most vile religions).
