The former President of the United States, Barrack Hussein Obama, who is often criticized for dividing the nation more than any president in modern times, launched a 3-part tweet on Saturday evening regarding the events that took place in Charlottesville, VA.

In the three-part tweet, Obama posted a quote from Nelson Mandela. Mr. Mandela was the South African anti-apartheid politician and philanthropist, who served as President of South Africa from 1994 to 1999.

Obama’s 3 tweets, when put together as a whole, reads: “No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin or his background or his religion… People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love… For love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.” – Nelson Mandela

Obama, who has 93,000,000 followers on Twitter, included with his tweet a picture of himself standing at a window speaking with three little children. One of the little kids is black, the other is white, the other appears to be Asian.

One of the reactions to Obama’s tweet came from a Twitter user who uses the handle “Resist2Exist” –not exactly a username that exudes the meaning of “love.”

In the tweet from Resist2Exist, a picture of the “bat signal” is used to call upon Obama.

The bat signal originated from the TV series “Batman.” The people of Gotham City would send out the bat signal when times were bad and they needed the superhero to save the day.

The tweet from Obama was retweeted by Chelsea Clinton, the daughter of Hillary and Bill Clinton.

Obama doesn’t use Twitter all that often, especially when compared to Trump. But it’s amazing how he uses certain events to prop himself up, while staying underground during other similar events. For example, where was the “hate / love” tweet during Trump’s inauguration when Black Lives Matter and violent protestors beat up Trump supporters and burned cars and local retail shops?

Where was Obama’s tweet during all the Trump rallies in 2015 and 2016 when elderly people were beaten by members of the Left?

Perhaps Obama and Chelsea both forget how divisive Obama was as president? If so, here’s a reminder: DALLAS.

A little more than one year ago, five Dallas police officers were murdered during a Black Lives Matter rally. The officers were killed because of the color of their skin. Where was the tweet from Obama about Micah Xavier Johnson who said he wanted to kill white people, and he did.

During the memorial service for the officers, Obama decided to scold a police department that just lost five of their own members. Obama said, “Whether you are black or white or… we have all seen this bigotry in our own lives at some point… if we’re honest, perhaps we’ve heard prejudice in our own heads… we know that. And while some suffer far more under racism’s burden, some feel to a far greater extent discrimination…none of us is entirely innocent. No institution is entirely immune. And that include our police departments.”

If scolding police officers isn’t divisive during a memorial for slain cops, what is?

Nobody with half a heart or half a brain believes in the sort of violence we saw today in Virginia. That said, sadly, too many people are trying to blame today on President Trump. They point to his strong rhetoric about secure borders and immigration laws.

Let me be clear. Members of the KKK do not represent Trump, or Trump voters in the same way members of Black Lives Matter don’t represent every Democrat.

I believe what we’re seeing today in Virginia is a carryover from the Obama administration. The country was divided for all 8 years he held office, and he did nothing when African Americans and Latinos were beating up on white people during Trump rallies. In fact, he never said much about blacks killing blacks in South Chicago.

That said, there is no doubt the country remains divided today, and President Trump has to work harder to bridge the gap. There is always room for improvement.

I believe the way to stop the sort of violence we saw today is by calling out all groups who propagate hate, not just those people with white skin. There are bad whites, bad blacks, bad latinos, etc. They ALL need to be called out when they hate. Obama never did that sort of thing. President Trump needs to do more of it.

And, by the way, improving race relations doesn’t start or end with taking down statues from parks.

Let’s hope our country can find a place where we can all get along. It can be done.
