Everyone needs to understand that Barack Obama knows exactly what he is doing concerning how he addresses race issues in America, including using useful idiot authors to manipulate the narrative and report an alternate reality that advances the agenda.
This author probably thinks he is smart but in reality he is nothing more than a pawn in Obama’s little game, like every life-like talking point and propaganda puppet on MSNBC.
From The Washington Post
Truly a fascinating [sarc] article but I have a few questions for the author.
When you say Obama needs to address race, do you mean by reaffirming your assertion that nearly every problem in the country is because of racism?
“During this period of self-imposed silence, we have watched our criminal laws become racialized and our race criminalized. Blacks continue to be faced with punishing unfairness and inequalities. Soaring rates of unemployment, discriminatory drug laws, disproportionate prison sentences, unequal access to health care and healthy food, unfair stop-and-frisk policies and “accidental” shootings of unarmed black men by the police — these and more are treated with indifference or contempt. We’re told to stop complaining, to get over it. No one cares.”
Or, do you want him to continue to remain largely silent on this issue and, by default, reaffirm your assertion that nearly every problem in America is because of racism? Hint: He will remain silent on the issue because he is much different than civil rights leaders of the past.
And, come on. Did you really think an article blaming all America’s problems on racism disguised as calling out the president for not being quite awesome enough at talking about racism was going to fool anyone?
“It’s the reason why every black leader from Frederick Douglass to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. have urged us to speak up, agitate, march, brave the beatings from fire hoses, bull whips and dogs, to touch the conscience of the American people with the righteousness of our demands for equal opportunity and justice.”
Look no further than the words of the president following the tragic death of Trayvon Martin. Did the president not weigh in on what should have been a local crime story by claiming that if he had a son, he would look like Trayvon? Would Martin Luther King Jr. have said such a thing? What does making the death of a fellow American all about him say about the content of Obama’s character?
What did this instance of Obama speaking out accomplish other than creating a psychological link between the victim of a local crime that very few people outside of Martin’s tiny circle of family and friends should care about and the first black president of the United States?
Yes, it seems that saying no one should care about Trayvon Martin is a horrible thing but when you look at it in light of the fact that over 11,000 black people have been murdered since Trayvon and NONE of these sons, daughters, fathers, friends, and people that may resemble a young Barack Obama have the collective sympathy of a grieving nation, it really isn’t, is it? Does anyone in the MSM weep nightly about any of these people? Has there been a single justice rally for any of them?
Unlike Dr. Martin Luther King Jr, who spoke up, agitated, and marched for the greater good, Obama spoke up only to agitate and create racist anger to advance the progressive agenda.
If you think Obama or anyone on the left care about anything other than the exploitation value of Trayvon Martin’s death, you are sadly mistaken. Harsh, right? Not really when you consider Obama is now dancing on the grave of poor Trayvon, just like he did with the children of Sandy Hook, to make the case for gun control. Never let a tragedy go to waste.
Obama’s comment about Trayvon looking like the son he never had was not an off-teleprompter gaffe by a person who doesn’t know what he is doing but a calculated and deliberate statement that did exactly what it was intended to do, personalize a local crime story, make a black face central to the story, and force Obama supporters to become emotionally invested in the Martin murder.
This statement not only made Trayvon Martin a symbol for national institutional racism, it made his murder akin to a metaphorical murder of the president himself which caused an incredible amount of personal angst and turmoil for the better than 90 percent of black America that have an unwavering loyalty and adoration for their personal hero, President Obama.
Yep, by commenting but not really commenting and making this a racial issue but not really making this a racial issue, mister calm, cool, and collected lobed a ball of racial hatred into a crowd of zombie stupid that hated Mitt Romney because he was going to ban tampons, hoped for the rape of Paul Ryan and his wife and daughters, wanted to kill white people after seeing a movie, wanted to kill NRA members, and put a cop killer on a pedestal for killing in the name of racial justice.
And then, in predictable useful idiot fashion, they took the ball and ran with it. Obama made this about race and then kicked back and watched the rhetoric and manufactured rage tear his country apart.
Look at the Trayvon Martin case that should not have gone to trial in the first place. The police said it wasn’t about racism, a two week FBI investigation proved it was not about racism, a member of the jury who was present for every second of the trial (unlike to zombies) said it wasn’t about racism but it was all too late as the presidential “speaking out on racism” damage had been done months before.
Same damage that was made worse after the verdict by Obama not speaking specifically about racism in his official statement.
“The death of Trayvon Martin was a tragedy. Not just for his family, or for any one community, but for America. I know this case has elicited strong [racial] passions. And in the wake of the verdict, I know those passions may be running even higher. But we are a nation of laws, and a jury has spoken. I now ask every American to respect the call for calm reflection from two parents who lost their young son. And as we do, we should ask ourselves if we’re doing all we can to widen the circle of compassion and understanding in our own communities. We should ask ourselves if we’re doing all we can to stem the tide of gun violence that claims too many lives across this country on a daily basis. We should ask ourselves, as individuals and as a society, how we can prevent future tragedies like this. As citizens, that’s a job for all of us. That’s the way to honor Trayvon Martin.”
The death of Trayvon Martin was indeed a tragedy, as all untimely death is, but it was only a national tragedy, again, unlike the over 11,000 blacks that have needlessly died since Trayvon that no one talks about, because Obama made it one.
This case elicited strong racial passions because Obama made it about race with his Trayvon is like the son I never had comment and subsequently taking no action to stem the tide of MSM and social media stupidity that comment started.
In fact, he made the stupidity worse by saying “I know those passions may be running even higher. But…”
Read the tweets, blog posts, forum comments, and MSM broadcasts to understand who his audience is. Hint: Mindless low information supporters, white-guilt hipsters, and MSM useful idiot cogs in the state run propaganda machine who are invested in hate.
Also, understand that he really said this.
“I know you have a passionate hatred for all racists who oppose me and my agenda and wish to take matters into your own hands to exact revenge but, unfortunately, you can’t technically do that because we have all those silly laws so respect the calm asked for by Trayvon’s parents [not me]…What can we, army of people who have been trained to despise with a passion all who oppose the progressive agenda, do to prevent future racist hate crimes from being committed by mortal enemies of the progressive agenda?
The racial divide in this country has never been wider and the racial anger has never been more intense, and that is exactly what Barack Obama wants. If he spoke the truth about racism, it would force a mass of zombies to stop using racism as their go to weapon to vilify their enemy and silence dissent. If he spoke the truth about racism he and his DoJ would not have been able to force a Zimmerman trial that he knew would go nowhere but forced anywaynjust so he could use the anger an acquittal would cause to his advantage. If he spoke the truth about racism he would have to ask the DoJ, the NAACP, and the MSM to stand down and let Zimmerman get on with his life.
If he spoke the truth about racism, he would have to speak of the racist past of his own party and actually become the agent of change he promised he would be before he was sworn in to serve his first term. None of this is anything either he or any of his supporters like the WaPo author really want him to do.
Without an enemy the progressive agenda fails and racism, real or manufactured, creates the enemies of the agenda it needs, President Obama knows this and knows how to exploit it.Follow @James_in_TX
