Obama Just Posted Photo In Honor Of Rosa Parks, ‘Sickening’ Thing Instantly Gets Noticed

Those following President Barack Obama’s Twitter feed probably saw where the president tweeted a tribute to Rosa Parks, the renowned citizen who notably started the Civil Rights movement when she refused to sit in the back of the bus. December 1 marked the 60th anniversary of the incident.

“Sixty years ago today, Rosa Parks changed America,” the tweet read.

Followers are also noticing something else. The picture meant to honor Parks doesn’t have her in it. Instead, Obama is featured as he sits in the middle of the bus that Parks rode in the seat she refused to give up, looking out a window.

This isn’t the first time that Obama has stolen Parks’ spotlight, nor it is the first time that picture has been used. Observers said he has posted six photos commemorating Parks since 2012, and all of them feature only one person – himself – at the center of the photo.

This particular photo of Obama in Parks’ seat was first posted in 2012, then again in 2013. The picture always accompanies a similar tweet.

“In a single moment 58 years ago today, Rosa Parks helped change this country,” said a tweet from Obama’s Organizing for Action group posted in 2013.

The post to honor Parks always stirs controversy with conservative commentators calling the president ego-driven and narcissistic.

“President Obama loves to insert himself in other people’s biographies. He also loves to honor people, most recently Neil Armstrong and Vice President Biden, with pictures of himself. All. About. Him. His laser-like focus never wavers from his own image,” Twitchy staff posted after the photo first came out in 2012.

This isn’t the first time the president has gotten into hot water over posing for the camera. He also faced controversy after taking a selfie with Danish Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt and British Prime Minister David Cameron during former South African President Nelson Mandela’s funeral in 2013.

 if the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet, and the people are not warned, and the sword comes and takes any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood I will require at the watchman’s hand.
