The liberal media and Democrat Party demonize every Republican president as racist. Former President George W. Bush was no exception.
National tensions over race have reached new heights. 35% of Americans worry about race relations now to just 13% shortly after Obama took office in 2009, according to a recent Gallup poll.
This is no coincidence. It is Democrats, who constantly view the world through the prism of race and instigate racial division . After seven years of the Obama presidency, it’s clear who is rubbing racial sores raw.
Bush joined President Obama in Dallas on Tuesday at the memorial of the five Dallas police officers who were brutally assassinated last week by a gunman.
GWB lamented the division in the U.S. that gave rise to the recent violence. The contrast between his and Obama’s speeches were like night and day.
“Most of us imagine we’d risk lives to protect love ones: Those in uniform assume that risk for the safety of strangers,” Bush said.

Bush reminded those in the audience that we have more in common than differences.
“At our best, we honor the image of God we see in one another. We recognize that we are brothers and sisters, sharing the same brief moment on earth and owing each other the loyalty of our shared humanity. At our best, we know we have one country, one future, one destiny. We do not want the unity of grief, nor do we want the unity of fear. We want the unity of hope, affection, and high purpose,” Bush said. “We know that the kind of just humane country we want to build that we have seen in our best dreams is made possible when men and women in uniform stand guard. At their best, when they’re trained and trusted and accountable, they free us from fear. The Apostle Paul said, ‘for God gave us the spirit not of fear, but of strength and love and self-control.’ Those are the best responses to fear in the life of our country.”
