As ex-president Barack Obama appeared on the campaign trail to stump for career politician Terry McAuliffe for Virginia gov, he claimed that the outrage over the rape in a Virginia school was an example of “phony, trumped-up, cultural war.”
America was shocked when the Loudoun County school board denied that they were made aware of the rape of a young girl in one of its schools. The board even accused the father of lying and claimed it intended to prosecute him.
The father of the girl blasted the school board for lying about the incident, and more recently it has been found that some members of the board absolutely did know about the incident before the father made it all so very public. A 14-year-old boy was arrested and charged with two counts of forcible sodomy.
But, despite the facts, Obama has now claimed that the outrage over the rape and the lies from the school board, is “phony.”
Obama dismissed the shock over the rape as “fake outrage,” and “trumped-up culture wars” though he avoided speaking about the incident itself.
“We don’t have time to be wasted on these phony trumped-up culture wars, this fake outrage, the right-wing media’s pedals to juice their ratings,” Obama said.
Republican candidate for Virginia governor Glenn Youngkin has made the leftist idiocy of the Loudoun County school board a major part of his campaign. Youngkin slammed Obama saying that the ex-president was dismissing “serious problems that actually affect serious people.”
“That’s a shame,” Youngkin said. “That’s not what this election is about. That’s not what you need Virginia.
Obama also accused Youngkin of fueling “conspiracy theories” that led to the Capitol Hill protest on January 6.
“Either he actually believes in the same conspiracy theories that resulted in a mob, or he doesn’t believe it but he is willing to go along with it, to say or do anything to get elected,” Obama said. “And maybe that’s worse … because that says something about character.”
These, of course, are all lies.
Obama is once again at his habit of lying for partisan gain.
