We know, you’re shocked. We were certainly shocked. President Obama, the same guy who said, “If I had a son, he’d be a gangsta wannabe punk just like Trayvon…” is holding not one, not two, but three meetings today in Washington about Ferguson and the state of race relations in the US. He’s doing that at the same time prominent members of the race hustler black community are threatening “more Fergusons.”
According to the White House schedule, the first afternoon meeting will be a talk with members of Obama’s Cabinet “to discuss federal programs and funding that provide equipment to the state and local enforcement agencies.” Vice President Joe Biden will also be in attendance.
Obama is then scheduled to meet with local and national civil rights leaders.
The third session will take place among elected officials, law enforcement officials and community and faith leaders “to discuss how communities and law enforcement can work together to build trust to strengthen neighborhoods across the country.”
Federal programs and funding. Let’s see. We’ve already spent $22 trillion on the “War on Poverty” and poverty is at the same level today it was when Democrats and a group of stupid Republicans decided the federal government could eliminate poverty. “Midnight basketball for all!!” perhaps?
So far the federal government has destroyed the black family, consigned generations of young black men to grow up in “single parent homes” without fathers, and is shocked when those young black men – and little kids these days – turn to street gangs for role models. We would suggest cutting off welfare, remove the incentive to have children out-of-wedlock and work to eliminate “single parent homes,” because a “single parent home” is not a “home” it’s just a “crib.” Somehow I doubt that the guy who will leave office leaving American taxpayers (a dying breed) $20 trillion in debt is going to care about our opinion.
We love the single line treatment for the second meeting, “Obama is then scheduled to meet with local and national civil rights leaders.”
He’s not meeting with “civil rights leaders” he’s meeting with a room full of race hustlers whose lifestyles depend on events like Ferguson and a compliant media willing to allow them to make up their own set of facts. Frankly, if you want to improve race relations in the US, the President should arrest them on charges of domestic terrorism and ship them to Syria to work on the racial and religious problems in the Muslim world. They would fit right in.
And last but not least, he’s going to get the cops and robbers together to make peace. Probably over a beer.
How about we start with the admission that Trayvon Martin was a gangsta wannabe punk who was in the process of murdering George Zimmerman when Zimmerman, in self-defense, shot and killed him. Like the jury ruled. It’s called due process and the rule of law.
After that, we could all agree that the gentle giant, Michael Brown, attacked a police officer after robbing a store and assaulting the owner. He tried to take the officer’s gun and when he couldn’t get it he ran. When the officer gave chase Brown turned on him and charged him and officer Wilson, defending himself from a man twice his size, shot and killed him. There were seven black witnesses who corroborated that account, as did the physical evidence. A mixed race grand jury found no reason to indict Wilson. Again, due process and the rule of law.
Here’s the problem with race relations. Charles Ogletree on Meet the Press.
Ogletree wants his own set of facts. Trayvon was murdered, Michael Brown was murdered. White cops, and white people in general are responsible for dead black kids. Ogletree, and the race hustling community in general, will not address the fact that over the last 10 years the ratio of blacks killed by other blacks outnumbers the blacks killed by cops by 50 to 1.
That’s a consistent ratio across the nation. But God forbid we talk about that.
Maybe President Obama will bring that up today, we’re sure some midnight basketball will fix the problem.
