I warned you that Obama wouldn’t be able to help himself when he spoke at the Dallas Memorial for the 5 police officers murdered by a crazed, racist lunatic, whose rage was stoked by the #BlackLivesMatter hoax.
Obama defended this phony “movement,” and even mentioned two of their poster boys, Philandro Castile and Alton Sterling, even though we don’t know the all the facts in those cases. Shades of Skip Gates. Once again, the police acted “stupidly,” right, Genius? Clearly, in Obama’s mind, these two men are clearly just two more angelic innocent black people viciously gunned down by evil racist white cops. No surprise there. As noted here, like all of his fellow leftists, he despises traditional American society and seeks payback against the racism and imperialism of this country. Mention of these two cases at this memorial for fallen police officers was highly inappropriate and cringe-inducing.
And, of course, there was more because if there has ever been a person more enamored of the sound of his own voice that this jackass, I’d like to see that person. No, actually, I take it back. I wouldn’t!
When he said
“And so when African-Americans from all walks of life, from different communities across the country, voice a growing despair over what they perceive to be unequal treatment, when study after study shows that whites and people of color experience the criminal justice system differently. So that if you’re black, you’re more likely to be pulled over or searched or arrested; more likely to get longer sentences; more likely to get the death penalty for the same crime. When mothers and fathers raised their kids right, and have the talk about how to respond if stopped by a police officer — yes, sir; no, sir — but still fear that something terrible may happen when their child walks out the door; still fear that kids being stupid and not quite doing things right might end in tragedy.
When all this takes place, more than 50 years after the passage of the Civil Rights Act, we cannot simply turn away and dismiss those in peaceful protest as troublemakers or paranoid.”
I wondered where the mention was of the ridiculously disproportionate rates of black crime, as if that is beside the point, which of course it is not. It is EXACTLY the point.
Last Saturday in Warsaw, he said “So if you care about the safety of our police officers, then you can’t set aside the gun issue and pretend that that’s irrelevant.” Nor can you put aside the issues of black crime and illegitimacy in the black community. As long as 70+% of children in the black community are born without fathers in the home, there will be disproportionate levels of crime and violence there. That’s just reality. So, please, Sir, don’t pretend that it’s “irrelevant.”
Today in Dallas, he said
As a society, we choose to under-invest in decent schools. We allow poverty to fester so that entire neighborhoods offer no prospect for gainful employment. We refuse to fund drug treatment and mental health programs.
This from the man who eliminated the voucher program that allowed poor children to attend the sort of fancy private schools that his daughters attend? And does he have any clue how much money we pour into education in this country? School districts in most large urban areas spend over $10,000 per student per year! And don’t get me started on “gainful employment.” Who exactly does he think is responsible for the stagnant, stinky economy we’re suffering with? The burdensome regulations, the tax increases, and of course, the hideous mother of all income redistribution schemes, the collapsing Obamacare racket, are all on him, yet he acts like he’s a bystander!
We flood communities with so many guns that it is easier for a teenager to buy a Glock than get his hands on a computer or even a book.
Who is “we” in that sentence? Gang bangers like the ones in his home town Chicago who rule the South and West sides of that war zone? That sentence makes no sense on so many levels. Why, with the “common sense gun safety laws” that he and other democrats have advocated since the earth cooled, which are the law in Chicago, is it so easy to get a Glock? Does he really think it’s easier for children to get guns than books anywhere in this country? If so, he really is a fool. He has to be referring to illegal guns, since it’s against federal law, except in very limited circumstances, for people under 18 to own handguns. And, the price of an illegal gun would be a lot higher than a legal one, of course, whereas books are available for no cost to students at schools and libraries. The problem that he’s trying to avoid addressing with his statement is that the young people he’s talking about aren’t exactly breaking down the doors to get books and computers because they come from broken families where they don’t learn the value of delayed gratification. It reminds me of the story often told by Teri O’Brien Show guest Larry Elder about watching black kids in the street hanging out, riding skateboards and wasting times, while the Korean kids were in the library with their mothers reading books. The problem is NOT that suppliers are “flooding” neighborhoods with guns. The problem is the demand side. Once again, Obama demonstrates his lack of understanding of free markets.
He is still attempting to live down another race-baiting speech he made last Thursday, just a few hours before the murderer inspired by rage over supposedly unjustified police shootings of “innocent” black men, went on his killing spree. His comments over the weekend while at the NATO summit, suggesting that Micah X. Johnson’s motives were mysterious, even though he stated them clearly (kill white cops), and blaming guns, just made things worse.
This performance today did not help, although I’m sure that the boiling cauldron of race-based rage, his repellant wife, Michelle, loved it.
