Maddow ‘Scared’ by Obama’s Warning of End of Democracy

August 20, 2020

Wednesday on MSNBC, anchor Rachel Maddow said former President Barack Obama’s speech at the Democratic National Convention “slayed” her and left her “scared” for American democracy.

“President Obama’s speech tonight slayed me,” Maddow said. “I’m sure people will have different opinions about it because it’s a different kind of thing. His warnings that we could potentially be at the end of American democracy scared me, and I found upsetting and hard to watch. But it’s powerful. Powerful stuff.”

After gushing over the “poetry” in Obama’s speeches, co-propagandist Joy Reid added, “That was not the kind of speech he gave tonight. This was President Obama saying, ‘I sat in that office, and I want you to listen to me because I’m warning you because I know it from inside the job that there’s a danger here.’ This was the speech that Obama has given throughout all of the speeches I’ve read or watched that absolutely did feel like the most of a warning. And I think it was warning about the potential end of America.”

Of course, the end of America — i.e., its “fundamental transformation” — is precisely what the left’s aim is.
