Barack Obama’s LGBTQ legacy EXPOSED

Fearless with Jason Whitlock

Newsweek once gave Barack Obama the title of “First Gay President” on its May 21, 2012, cover as he was heavily focused on issues like legalizing gay marriage across America.

The author of the article was gay writer, Andrew Sullivan, who wrote, “When you step back a little and assess the record of Obama on gay rights, you see, in fact, that this was not an aberration. It was an inevitable culmination of three years of work.”

Jason Whitlock believes that becoming the gay community’s biggest ally was perhaps his mission from the outset.

“Tying the journey of black people to the cause of lesbians, gays, bisexuals, and transgenders is Obama’s most enduring and impactful legacy,” Whitlock says.

And Obama’s making Whitlock’s point crystal clear.

The former president took to Twitter this week to post a letter he wrote to the librarians of America in which he attacked the efforts to ban books that feature explicit material.

"Today, some of the books that shaped my life—and the lives of so many others—are being challenged by people who disagree with certain ideas or perspectives,” he wrote in the letter.

“It’s no coincidence that these ‘banned books’ are often written by or feature people of color, Indigenous people, and members of the LGBTQ+ community — though there have also been unfortunate instances in which books by conservative authors or books containing ‘triggering’ scenes have been targets for removal," Obama continued.

One of the books parents are fighting to ban from their children’s school libraries is called "Gender Queer: A Memoir," which depicts numerous gay sex acts.

While Obama referenced writer Mark Twain in his letter, Whitlock believes it was a distraction. He also referenced James Baldwin and Walt Whitman, who are two of the most famous gay writers in American history.

“Obama knows this entire book-banning controversy centers around hyper-sexualized material. He’s seen the viral and social media videos of outraged parents reading the books aloud at school board meetings. He knows that his political party’s being blamed for stealing the innocence of children,” Whitlock says.

“We live in a time when Obama’s skin color provides him the cover to justify and promote blatant immorality and dishonesty,” he adds.
