Social media users have attacked former president Barack Obama over his comment about Independence Day celebrations in the United States.

July 4 is a special day for Americans as the day is celebrated with huge joy since it marks the US Independence in 1776.

In a short message for the Day celebration, Obama indicated that 4th July is about celebrating the big, bold, inclusive experiment that is our American democracy which should not be taken for granted.

“The Fourth of July is about celebrating the big, bold, inclusive experiment that is our American democracy. And it has always been an experiment. Our democracy has never been guaranteed, which means we can’t take it for granted. We need to keep fighting for it, keep improving it, and keep making sure it reflects the better angels of our nature instead of the worst. That, more than anything, is what America is all about.” Obama wrote.

The message of the former president did not go well with some Americans, especially members of the Republican party.

One users said “We aren’t a Democracy. We’re a Constitutional Republic. “Democracy” under this Administration has become “Whatever we can do to keep ourselves in power”.

Some also argued that United States is a Constitutional Republic not Democracy.

“The United States is a Constitutional Republic. I know this is hard concept to grasp for someone born in Kenya.” Another one said.

“America is a constitutional republic, not a democracy. We don’t go by mob rule. We go by what’s right. And our current government that’s abandoned our border, crashed our economy and engaged in pointless war isn’t right. We need President Trump. He’ll get us back on track.” One X user stated.


“The Fourth of July is not an experiment. Never has been. It is a big middle finger to tyrannical governments that says we will no longer be under your rule.”

“Why is it so hard for you to acknowledge we are a Constitutional Republic Barry? Does it get in the way of your fundamental transformation of this country into a socialist craphole?”

“Nobody has done more damage to our democracy than you and Biden. Shame on you. You are not authorized to celebrate today as you are a traitor to this republic.”

“There’s no bigger experiment than the one you’re currently conducting by leaving a guy with dementia in the White House.”

“Independence Day was achieved by men you would call “insurrectionist” or “domestic terrorists” you know NOTHING of what it takes to secure FREEDOM!”

“Spoken like The True Marxist Subversive You Are The founding was not a big, bold ”inclusive“ experiment, rather it was about Free Men throwing off the yoke of tyranny and securing their God Given rights. America has never been a “democracy“. The founders specifically established The USA as a Republic. The founders viewed democracy as being equivalent to mob rule, which is what communists like you push all the time. We can’t take our liberty in this country for granted, but then again, you by implementing “the fundamental transformation of America” you brag about, have done more than anyone else in our nation’s history to destroy the very foundations of American Freedom. History will toss you on the ash heap along with the rest of the Marxist despots. Happy 4th of July!”
