The woke-left revealed their newest target for cancel culture: Former President Barack Obama.
You read that correctly. This is NOT an April Fools Joke.
After a school was supposed to be named after President Obama, students and education administration protested the naming of the school citing ‘woke’ values…
Immigration activists began objecting to the school’s name when they called former President Barack Obama an ‘oppressor.’ Read their statement below:

“I will not be part of renaming a school after someone who did not and does not represent the undocumented community,” said school board member, Edgar Castellanos, of District 60 in Chicago.
Edgar Castellanos told ABC 7 Chicago that he came to the United States of America as an undocumented child and for that reason he could not support Obama’s ‘pro-border security’ policies.
The Waukegan Board of Education met on Tuesday night to talk about renaming schools that were named off of historical figures who supported slavery in their time in power or even owned slaves.
Former hero of the Democratic party, President Barack Obama and his wife were notable front-runners for their connections to Chicago, however, a large disruption may cause their name to be pulled from the list.
Pro-illegal immigration activists went as far to protest Obama outside of the school board meeting to show their distaste for the first African American President in America’s history.
Here’s what one of the activists had to say about the naming of the school:
“From the time Barack Obama became president until 2017 when he left, he today is still the highest-ranking president with deportations in our nation,” Julie Contreras said.
Contreras, who has run immigration shelters for migrant children claims that President Obama never met their expectations on illegal immigration which caused their outrage.
Here’s what she continued in saying:
“We feel that Barack Obama did disservice to us. He denied us, and he didn’t stop the deportations, the way he promised … If you’re removing the name of Thomas Jefferson, one oppressor, the name of Obama is another oppressor, and our families do not want to see that name,” she added.
Another protestor, who’s father was deported during the Obama administration claimed that the school being named after President Obama would be ‘painful.’
“It was something very sad,” Mauricio Sanchez said. “We couldn’t even say goodbye to our dad. We just hoped for him to be able to get out.”
Sanchez’s father is reportedly still caught up in immigration hearings.
This is only the beginning of protests against Obama’s time in office as his Library is slated to be built in Chicago in the middle of this year. Some members of the left-wing ‘woke culture’ are now beginning to see that even the first African American President of the United States does meet their impossible standards.
Do you think Obama should be cancelled?
