Is Obama about to create a race incident?

jesse-jackson-obama-7-15-08I don’t know if the following simply reflects standard operating procedure or, given past contrivances of the radical left and the current administration, a harbinger of things to come. In either case, we should probably know one way or the other in fairly short order.

Last Wednesday, in one of the most despicable displays I’ve heard in a long time, racial provocateur Jesse Jackson outlined a paranoid vision of America pertaining to race relations, misrepresenting the politics of one conservative politician and one conservative president, neither of whom were able to counter his slander because they’re long-deceased.

At Furman University in Greenville, S.C., Jackson claimed that former President Ronald Reagan and former presidential candidate Barry Goldwater had been proponents of segregation. “Goldwater and Reagan – had they been successful, it would have been illegal for blacks and whites to play together on a Saturday afternoon,” Jackson said, claiming that the American South is “the land of the free, the home of genocide.”

Where the hell he gets off spewing such incendiary and inaccurate calumnies at this point in our history is anyone’s guess. That some still heed, let alone respect this creature is the real problem.

Aaron Alexis: Madman or race warrior?

aaronalexis1The shooting spree executed by Aaron Alexis at the Washington, D.C., Naval Yard on Sept. 16 has given rise to a dizzying host of questions. Among them are those of Alexis’ questionable mental capacity, the Navy’s failure to take precautions despite having been warned of his alleged mental incapacity, the security of the Navy Yard and military installations across the country, Alexis’ access to firearms after having been involved in firearms-related altercations, his arrest record and many others.

Then there is the question of the troubled ex-reservist and civilian contractor’s motivation for entering the facility on Monday morning, then 12 twelve people and wounding eight others before being neutralized by police. This question becomes more confusing the more that is added to the narrative. It was reported that Alexis’ military career itself was catalyzed by his anger at the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on the United States. While his father reportedly told police that Alexis participated in rescue operations at Ground Zero (he would have been 22 at the time), there is no evidence that this occurred, although he was employed within eye-shot of the Twin Towers when they were destroyed. He is also purported to have claimed that he’d suffered Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) as a result of having witnessed the carnage of that day.

Heightening racial tension: Just part of his plan

chrislanekillersIt’s reaching near-epidemic proportions, but the press is still failing to report on the uptick in black-on-white crime in America. Some will be familiar with the accounts of violent black-on-white crime reported by WND of late, several of which have been incredibly brutal and gruesome.

Last Friday, 22-year-old Australian Christopher Lane was gunned down by three black youths in Duncan, Okla. The crime is not being reported as racially motivated, despite the fact that the assailants deliberately chose an upscale, predominantly white neighborhood. Neither is the stabbing attack on 17-year-old Natasha Martinez in Queens, N.Y., being classified as racially motivated, even though this one might be the work of a serial assailant. I imagine the lack of coverage could be due to the fact that Martinez has a Latino surname and appears white, whereas George Zimmerman (who was acquitted of second-degree murder in the death of Trayvon Martin) has an Anglo surname but identifies as Latino. If that appears convoluted and nonsensical, that’s only because it is.

However, it is not only in recent weeks or since the Zimmerman verdict that such crimes have been on the increase.

I’ve been asked more times than I can reliably recall why race relations in America appear to have deteriorated since Barack Obama became president. I would wager that most Americans, even those who were not Obama supporters, hoped that his ascendency would result in an improvement in race relations.

Not that they were all that bad to start with, in my humble opinion.

The lies that bind: Obama’s race strategy

rodeoclown1As many readers of this space are aware, I am in complete agreement with my esteemed colleague Mychal Massie, who asserted this week that it is time to admit President Obama is a communist. He went on to explain why, in keeping with Obama’s Alinskyite plan of action, it is imperative for this White House to foment racial tension. This is absolutely true, and I believe that the more people we have out there articulating this, the better chance we have of surviving as a nation.

At this juncture, the strategy of fueling racial tension is no longer limited to the White House and Obama’s surrogates, or even those who materially or politically benefit from such conditions, such as the New Black Panther Party or career activists like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton.

A stunt executed by a rodeo clown at the Missouri State Fair last week has become a major news story. The preposterous premise of the foregoing sentence only makes sense (of a sort) in context. During festivities, said clown reportedly donned a Barack Obama mask and capered about, as the announcer asked the audience if they wanted to see the president run down by a bull.

This was picked up and disseminated by news agencies and interpreted as horribly and unprecedentedly racist, despite innumerable comedians having mocked American presidents since time immemorial. The miscreant clown has been banned for life from the Missouri State Fair.

Liberals killed Trayvon Martin, and Jamiel Shaw, and…

trayvon_jamiel1What we do know for sure about the night of February 26, 2012 is that George Zimmerman shot Trayvon Martin to death in Sanford, Florida, later claiming self-defense. Despite altogether too many having made up their minds about who was to blame within minutes of hearing of the incident, and the biased, tainted press reports, enough facts have subsequently shaken out that I believe a reliable determination can now be made as to why Martin died that night.

Other than the summary accusations and presumptions of racism on Zimmerman’s part, very little has come to light towards definitively affirming the mixed-race (Latino-Caucasian) neighborhood watch participant as a racist individual. Quite the opposite, in fact: Zimmerman’s actions and activities in the weeks and years prior suggest that he was anything but racially-biased.

Given the statutes governing those possessing concealed carry permits for firearms (as did Zimmerman), the names of Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman would have been long forgotten by now were it not for the ensuing politicization surrounding the racial component here. Typically, these statutes do not demand that one waits to be physically overpowered before discharging their weapon.
