In the latest episode of ‘Obama media worship,’ the latest breaking story is that President Obama is a direct descendent of the first American slave on his mother’s side. That’s right, this super historical president is even more historical than you know! Don’t pay any attention to the crappy job he’s doing – just know he’s really historical
The New York Times reported:
The findings are scheduled to be announced on Monday by Ancestry.com, a genealogy company based in Provo, Utah. Its team, while lacking definitive proof, said it had evidence that “strongly suggests” Mr. Obama’s family tree — on his mother’s side — stretches back nearly four centuries to a slave in colonial Virginia named John Punch.
In 1640, Mr. Punch, then an indentured servant, escaped from Virginia and went to Maryland. He was captured there and, along with two white servants who had also escaped, was put on trial. His punishment — servitude for life — was harsher than what the white servants received, and it has led some historians to regard him as the first African to be legally sanctioned as a slave, years before Virginia adopted laws allowing slavery.
The media is, of course, trying to use this to bring race back into the conversation so that the media will have every opportunity possible to call anyone who isn’t an Obama supporter a racist.
“How can we not have him as president of the United States for a second term? We ‑‑ I mean, we have to have him. It would be racist to not have him now,” Glenn joked.
“Isn’t that a terrible conclusion from what you just said? Like, why would that make it so we had to have him as president? What significance would that have?” Stu asked.
Pat jokingly responded by calling him a racist for even asking the question.
Then again, if the ancestor is on his mother’s side playing the race card may not be that easy, seeing as she’s caucasian. Nevertheless, the media will find a way.
Make sure to watch the hilarious clip above and tune in tonight at 5pm ET on GBTV where Glenn will take a serious look at the glorification out media is doing of the first family and the shocking similarities it has to a country like North Korea.
