“Woke” liberals love to call out, ridicule, and “cancel” anyone who dares to violate their stringent code of conduct.
Former President Barack Obama stunned the crowd at a recent event when he rebuked liberals for using this tactic.
Shocking the Crowd
The crowd was clearly not expecting to be called out by liberal darling Barack Obama. There was some noticeable shock heard throughout the crowd when Obama dropped the bomb on them.
He stated, “This idea of purity and you’re never compromised and you’re politically woke, and all that stuff – you should get over that.”
“The world is messy. There are ambiguities. People who do really good stuff have flaws,” Obama said.

What Is He Really Saying?
Barack Obama’s statements are shocking on their face because the left is absolutely preoccupied with finding weaknesses among their political opponents, and it’s gone so far that they’ve begun to attack each other for not being pure enough.
Obama noted, “One danger I see among young people, particularly on college campuses … and this is accelerated by social media … is this sense sometimes of, ‘The way of me making change is to be as judgmental as possible about other people, and that’s enough.”
“That’s not activism,” he continued. “That’s not bringing about change. If all you’re doing is casting stones, you’re probably not going to get that far.”
Although everything Obama’s saying is true, there may be more to this outburst. If you kind of read between the lines on what Obama was saying, it is almost as though he is preparing his people for what is about to come.
Keep in mind, this appearance by Obama came after the attorney general announced that U.S. Attorney John Durham’s investigation has been reclassified as a criminal probe. It is very likely that high-ranking members of Obama’s administration will be called in to testify. There is already speculation former intelligence officials James Clapper and John Brennan could be called.
It was only a couple of days ago that Geraldo Rivera stated that he believes this could lead right back to Obama himself. Could it be that Obama was preparing the masses to finally learn that he is not perfect and may have bent the rules to undermine the Trump presidency?
Or maybe he’s just fed up with cancel culture like the rest of us.
