In the wake of last Saturday’s verdict in the Michael Dunn “loud music” trial, which we discussed extensively on last week’s edition of The Teri O’Brien Show with our guest Andrew Branca of lawofselfdefense.com, liberal media morons took the opportunity to recite their predictable, threadbare clichès about our need to have “a serious conversation about race” in this country. As I said on the show, it seems to me that we talk about little else, especially since the election of our first affirmative-action president, Barack Hussein Obama, a man who surfed into the U.S. Senate, and then the White House, on the mother of all waves of white guilt.
In the American Spectator, Ross Kaminsky describes that extremely destructive foolishness being spewed by frequently featured MS-NBC race-baiter, “African studies” (seriously) professor Marc Lemont Hill, CNN’s Don Lemon, and some guy in the Atlantic Monthly:
The effect and intent of the words of Lemon and Hill and Coates are to divide Americans along racial lines, to instill anger and mistrust and jealousy and bitterness. It helps their ratings; it helps them sell magazines; it helps them line up more speaking engagements. It makes them feel good about themselves — by making one part of society hate another part.
But their views are a national cancer which, perhaps surprisingly to some, is metastasizing more rapidly under our first black president than at any time in the nearly five decades I have been alive.
In fact, it should surprise no one. Barack Obama is not foremost a black president; he is a Progressive Alinskyite president who happens to be black, a follower of a man who preached division as a political tactic, and the employer of a man, Attorney General Eric Holder, who said (while in his previous job), “I am the black United States attorney…[T]here’s a common cause that bonds the black United States attorney with the black criminal….” As former DoJ attorney Christian Adams put it, that’s the real race card.
It is not surprising that President Obama inflamed the nation surrounding the Zimmerman case; indeed it is possible charges might never have been brought had he not said “If I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon.” Somehow he didn’t say the same about Jordan Davis. Could it be because his insincerity would be obvious?
Or is it something else: that Obama isn’t running for re-election? Even George Zimmerman, a self-described former “huge supporter of President Obama,” in an interview with Univision on Sunday, said that Obama’s interference in his case was an “opportunity” to win more votes. (If you want to see a truly egregious example of media misconduct, watch Chris Cuomo’s interview of George Zimmerman which aired on CNN on Monday in which Cuomo asked Zimmerman how he felt about people who “liked that a young black had been killed.”)
But the politics of division remain this president’s first choice of political weapon. It is why when presented with a spreading national cancer of anti-white racism among leading blacks in the media (and some of their strangely-guilt-ridden white colleagues), Obama’s actions aim to speed and broaden the disease rather than to treat it.
Of course he’s trying to spread this evil racism. It’s the secret to his success. Expecting him to disavow racism and the myth of perpetual black victimhood would be like expecting Netflix to stop producing “House of Cards.” Playing the race card has worked out very well for him, Eric Holder, Moochelle and the whole lot.
It’s pathetic and disgusting, and not going to end any time soon.
