Barack Obama is back.
This time, the ex-Democrat president has one thing on his mind: taking Trump out of the political arena through the guise of “combatting partisan gerrymandering,” which everyone knows is really about skewing votes in favor of the Democrat party.
Obama is launching the “Redistricting U” program which, according to its website will send “dedicated trainers to cities across the country to train volunteers, give them the tools to impact the redistricting process in their state, hear from them on how to best make change in their communities, and empower them to be leaders in the movement for fair maps.”
Here's the announcement of the launch of the program Obama announced on Twitter:
Not only is Obama and other Democrat's initiative to re-district states to "make elections more fair" an obvious mask for disbalancing the system to their own advantage, but its also hypocritical when these same people criticize Trump for wrecking establishments!
As Charlie Kirk pointed out:
Fox News has more details on Obama's new initiative:
Former President Barack Obama is back in the political arena, announcing a new initiative to combat partisan gerrymandering — though Republicans say the efforts are really about helping Democrats.
The "Redistricting U" program, which is part of the "All on the Line" campaign, aims to recruit and train individuals to take up the fight against drawing congressional districts based on partisan interests.
“Training is at the heart of organizing. It’s why I’ve always made it a priority — from my 2008 campaign until now," Obama tweeted Monday. "And it’s why I’m proud to announce @allontheline’s in-person training initiative, Redistricting U."
Republicans, though, have accused Democrats of making it sound like they want fairness — when in reality they are hoping to place their party in a better position.
“If anyone tells you that @EricHolder is ‘fighting against gerrymandering’ and for ‘fair maps,’ just look at the form his organization filed with the IRS,” former Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker tweeted last week. “The truth: their mission is to ‘FAVORABLY POSITION DEMOCRATS FOR THE REDISTRICTING PROCESS.’”
"Redistricting U" was created in February after Obama merged his Organizing for Action group with former Attorney General Eric Holder’s National Redistricting Action Fund.
According to "All on the Line's" website, "Redistricting U" will be “sending dedicated trainers to cities across the country to train volunteers, give them the tools to impact the redistricting process in their state, hear from them on how to best make change in their communities, and empower them to be leaders in the movement for fair maps.”
The organization is focused on impacting the redrawing of congressional districts, which will take place in 2021 following the collection of data in the 2020 census. They warn against “rigged electoral maps drawn with surgical precision by politicians to preserve their party’s political power and silence the will of the people.”
The Los Angeles Times also said:
Former President Obama announced a new initiative on Monday aimed at ending partisan gerrymandering.
In one of his first public political actions since he left the White House, Obama unveiled Redistricting U on Twitter as an in-person training arm of the All on the Line project, a grassroots advocacy campaign fighting for fair electoral maps ahead of the 2020 census count and redistricting in 2021.
“Training is at the heart of organizing. It’s why I’ve always made it a priority — from my 2008 campaign until now. And it’s why I’m proud to announce @allontheline’s in-person training initiative,“ Obama tweeted.
Redistricting U says it will train volunteers in U.S. cities about the redistricting process in their states and how they can counter unfair redistricting practices. The campaign says “rigged electoral maps” create a system in which elected officials “feel more accountable to the most radical parts of their base rather than to the rational, reasonable solutions that most Americans support.”
