WE HAVE AWAKENED!!! To a “gulf of mistrust” between local police and minorities and, get this, we awakened “after the killing of an unarmed black teenager in Ferguson, MO. He didn’t mention the unarmed teen beat the officer and had just robbed a store.
We have NO idea who is guilty in that encounter. The officer hasn’t been indicted, tried or convicted except by rioting vigilantes thanks to a president and an attorney general who are greatly overstepping their bounds.
The president of the United States is trying to sway a criminal investigation!!!
We should be outraged and we should be frightened over this abuse of power.
Mr. Obama even made an unethical comparison of the Ferguson case to the atrocities committed by ISIS in his UN address last week.
“I realize that America’s critics will be quick to point out that at times we too have failed to live up to our ideals; that America has plenty of problems within its own borders. This is true. In a summer marked by instability in the Middle East and Eastern Europe, I know the world also took notice of the small American city of Ferguson, Missouri — where a young man was killed, and a community was divided,” Obama said. “So, yes, we have our own racial and ethnic tensions. …
“But we welcome the scrutiny of the world — because what you see in America is a country that has steadily worked to address our problems,” he said.
He likes to make minorities feel like victims. Instead of lifting them up, he victimizes them some more.
“Too many men of color feel targeted by law enforcement … and the mistrust scars the heart of our children,” he said at the annual Congressional Black Caucus awards dinner Saturday night.
“That is not the society we want,” he added. “It’s not the society our children deserve. Whether you’re black or white, you don’t want that from America.”
Minorities are committing most of the crimes according to FBI statistics!!!
This dinner was an opportunity for Obama to once again vilify the officer who shot Michael Brown and local police in general. He believes any shooting of a minority is cause for civil rights action regardless of whether it is a hate crime or not. He is trying to put his own bizarre definition to it.
He is also interested in controlling all local police – nationalizing them – as we know from a recent proposition by his mouthpiece, Rep. Elijah Cummings.
Primarily though, he was there to rile people up with lies to get out the vote.
“I know that nothing any of us can say can ease the grief of losing a child so soon,” Obama said to silence.
He wants the government (emphasis on government) and black leaders “to help communities and law enforcement build trust, build understanding, so our communities stay safe and our young people stay on track.”
The president asked for support his program – My Brother’s Keeper – which is offers greater assistance to minority men that are most likely to drop out of school or have interactions with the criminal justice system. That program seems good though there seems to be some question as to whether poor whites can apply.
He is going to launch a “Community Challenge” initiative as part of that program, which will ask mayors and local religious and community leaders to develop a “cradle to college and career strategy” for young men of color.
He believes government should have their hands on us from birth to death. Remember The Life of Julia?
He used the opportunity to promote a one-sided view of the Ferguson shooting to get out the vote. He told black leaders they needed to encourage their communities to get out the vote in November’s elections.
He said he meets people on the road (how likely is that?), who would say that he looked tired and that they were praying for him.
“I say thank you,” he explained. “I believe in the power of prayer. but we need more than prayer. We need to vote. That will be helpful. it will not relieve me of my gray hair but it’ll help me pass some bills.”
What a crock!!!
He roused the leaders at the expense of a police officer in Ferguson who might be completely innocent.
He told the attendees to lead voter registration drives, saying members of their communities “need to know how to register and they need to know how and when to vote.”
Mr. Obama isn’t solely to blame. The Democratic Party stands behind lies, abuse of power, and the swaying of criminal investigations as long as they get the Democrat pawns out to vote.
