Obama and Holder Lied, Cops Died

Obama and Holder Lied, Cops Died

In the ongoing saga of the communist cabal currently driving policy in the White House, we have yet another instance of the most treacherous subversion in high places.

Sadly, in this instance, it is costing lives.

As reported last week by the Heritage Foundation’s Daily Signal news outlet, there is evidence that the Obama-Eric Holder Department of Justice was involved in funding a “community organization” linked to a controversial rap music video glorifying the murder of New York City police officers. It just so happens that two NYPD police officers were subsequently killed by ambush on Dec. 20.

The group, called Bronx Defenders, reportedly received at least $1.5 million in U.S. taxpayer dollars (in grants) from the Department of Justice, and played a prominent role in the cop-killing music video. In the wake of the murders of New York City police officers Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos (by a self-styled rapper named Ismaaiyl Abdullah Brinsley, no less), pundits began weighing in on a possible connection between the video and the murders.

As if the DOJ weren’t scandalized enough already …

This raises the question of what function the Justice Department has in subsidizing community organizations in the first place, but I am more concerned with its ironic transformation into an anti-police, anti-law enforcement law enforcement organization.

Outraged? Yes. Surprised? No.

In all honesty, how can we be surprised when everything the DOJ under Eric Holder has represented is illustrative of his long-held radical black nationalist beliefs. It is apparent from the rhetoric he has employed since he was confirmed that he is among the most paranoid and cynical of black Americans. America had just elected its first black president (or whatever passes for black in our society), and Holder called us a “nation of cowards” with regard to addressing issues of race. After taking actions that ought to have landed him in an orange jumpsuit, he had the temerity to whine to an audience at Al Sharpton’s National Action Network after being reminded of his contempt of Congress charge by Rep. Louis Gohmert, R-Texas, during at a hearing of the House Judiciary Committee.

Unfortunately, like Barack Obama’s past, the radical and subversive backgrounds of his would-be minions were not widely shared with the American people back in 2008, or 2009 for that matter.

Zimmerman verdict: Marxists’ predictable response

holder_weaselfaceBlowback from the recent verdict acquitting George Zimmerman of second-degree murder in the Feb. 26, 2012, death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin defies all logic and common sense but is an object lesson in the duplicity and opportunism of the radical left. This would include the Obama administration, which is attempting to use contrived activism to attenuate the scrutiny under which it finds itself, as well as advancing its gun control agenda and dividing Americans.

Activists and the press made the Martin-Zimmerman tragedy about race; any argument to the contrary is based either in politics or gross misinformation. Thus, due to politics, gross misinformation (as well as outright propaganda and the most outrageous lies) abounded from the outset.

George Zimmerman, who is not white, was represented as a predatory, slavering white bigot. Trayvon Martin was portrayed as a smiling, carefree waif, skipping home to enjoy his iced tea and Skittles. Both made fatal errors of judgment that night, but the fact is that with the exception of some misconceptions Martin had about Zimmerman (that he was white, for example), there was no consideration of race prior to the shooting, and no racial profiling on Zimmerman’s part. Lies were told by the press, politicos and activists; news networks manipulated evidence; and President Obama fueled the fires of division with his now-famous “If I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon.”
