Obama and the Politics of Race

 

When it comes for seeing the forest through the trees, you can always rely on Brit Hume:

In Dallas, Tuesday, President Obama will be trying to calm racial tensions that his own behavior has done much to aggravate. From his denunciation of the Cambridge, Massachusetts, police as acting, quote, stupidly in the arrest of law professor Henry Louis Gates, to his assertion that the motives of the Dallas cop killer are unclear, they aren’t.

The president has consistently chosen to see things through the eyes of an aggrieved black activist rather than of a president of all the people. He’s not failed to speak out whenever a black is killed by a white police officer, but has said next to nothing about the continued slaughters of blacks by other blacks in the streets of Chicago, Baltimore, and other cities.

He has made his sympathy for the Black Lives Matter movement obvious and never mind that the whole premise of the movement seems to be fallacious. No case has given the movement more impetus than the false claim that Michael Brown was shot down in cold blood while trying to surrender to a cop in Ferguson, Missouri two years ago.

And now a study led by a black Harvard law professor has examined 15 years of crime data from 5 major cities and 2 counties. The study found that while police were more often likely to get physical with black suspects than with white ones, when it came to police shootings, there was no racial bias. Did you hear that, Mr. President? No racial bias.

 

 

Sadly, President Obama is not the first President to make political hay out of racial animus.  It would be a magnificent gift to this country if he were the last.

  1. America (red state America) truly is a great nation. It has survived seven-plus years of Obama fundamental transformation – translated total destruction.

  2. I think Pres . Obama has no moral authority to address our nation anymore. I wish we could have a new president who does.

  3. “Obama has no moral authority to address our nation anymore.”- Anzlyne

    He never held moral authority.
    He is a renegade and imposter-in-chief.
    Moral authority from an immoral source is an oxymoron.
    At best he is Chicago punk. A thug. At worse, he is an Isis sympathizer…a Muslim who claims Christianity and wishes all Americans to be without their firearms as to make it easy for the “gathering of peasants.”
    Lame duck?
    Sure.
    Lame individual. Absolutely.

  4. Like it or not, both Obama and Bergoglio – two peas in a pod – were validly elected to their offices. Like it or not, one is validly the President and the other is validly a Pope. Yet both are liberal progressives, both are heretics and neither has any moral authority due to their abandonment of authentic Christian principle (assuming either one had any to begin with). I for one would do much better if I pay as little attention to each man as possible. It is far healthier for my serenity and sanity, and it prevents unnecessary resentments and fits of rage at things I clearly cannot control (nor should I). Let God deal with each of these men, and when He does, there will be hell to pay, of that i assure you.

  5. I was really touched by Bush’s words. There’s a Lincolneque quality to them. Bush – who knew, right? Definitely there’s a decency there that you could almost forget we could have in a president. And I don’t think I’ve heard a better description of our current crisis than this:

    “Too often we judge other groups by their worst examples, while judging ourselves by our best intentions. “

  6. Pinky, thank you. President Bush’s address could not have been written and delivered any better. Yes, our values are what makes up a nation; that bind us together. Values that are Judeo-Christian. Nonpartisan. Speaking from the heart as a Texan and a believer in God.

  7. Heard a very telling comment on the radio by a Wash. DC police officer who had been on the Anacostia beat for 15 years. He said that the response from black males when pulled over for questioning or arrest is to always resist, to give the cops a hard time. If they don’t, they loose street cred with their “brothers” who are standing by.

  8. I often have wondered what Obama and his puppet masters end game is on race when fanning the flames on Ferguson, etc . I’m starting to believe it’s to have an excuse for instituting martial law.

  9. Regarding Obama’s “pronouncements” yesterday at the Dallas Police Officers’ Memorial:
    Anyone who listened to it had to find it disturbing, of course self-exaltatory (he used “I” 47 times in the space of the address”), and crackling with electric tension, like the sound you hear when suddenly you look up and find out that you are under high-voltage electrical towers.

    The man, sociopathic and egotistical, is on the edge, now more than ever. His reign, even with HIllary, ends in a few months, and sociopaths DONT TRUST ANYBODY, let alone a Clinton, were Shrillary to ascend the Imperial Throne. And if it is Trump…well, full psychosis is close around the corner—Supreme Injustice Ginsberg has already succumbed.

    I am in the thrall of Dr. Andrew G. Hodges (noted forensic psychiatrist) and his evaluation of Obama. For those who haven’t read his book (“The Obama Confession: Secret Fear, Secret Fury”) or noted his youtube explanations (there are about 7 parts: “The Obama Confession”), Hodges “regresses” Obama to his first 18 or so years to explain the man we have in the White House today.

    It is chilling to listen to Obama in this speech, and then to compare it with Hodges’ predictions for his final months in office: Hodges believes Obama is torn between saving America and destroying it, and now, at the present time, the hate-filled destroying side is obviously winning. Rejected as “not black enough” by his abandoning father, also later abandoned by his “stormchaser” mother and embarrassingly raised by upper-middle-class white grandparents, who yet also abandoned him to the hate-filled anti-American pornographer and communist Frank Marshall Davis, Obama believes that America is a sham and a lie and must be torn down completely. It is one of the reasons that he lies with such facility: “America is a lie, and has always been: my lies are nothing by comparison”. “Black children abandoned on the street (=myself) are owed a reckoning by America, and the time is now.” (of course paraphrases).

    But he is so psychotic now, he cant see the restlessness and disturbance that you could see in the audience that he elicited, in contrast to the hopeful and consoling message of former president GW Bush.

    He cant stop himself at this point: and the next few months are going to come to a climax. Nothing frightens him except the loss of his power—power which did nothing to “heal” his rage and fear—and now it is slipping away.

  10. One other thing: Dr. Hodges focuses on the apparent discussion that his radical mom, Stanley Ann Dunham, apparently disclosed to him as a boy, that she had considered having an abortion when she discovered she was pregnant, out of wedlock (he tried to hide that in his autobiography, but was forced later to admit he was illegitimate—you know the street word for that), and abandoned by his father.

    Dr. Hodges believes whatever she told him, namely that he “could have not been”, possibly in his early years (age 6-10), a colossal error by a completely narcissistic mother, was the fulcrum of pushing this man into sociopathy for the rest of his life-time. Dr Hodges makes a convincing examination of several comments Obama has had on fatherhood, and on abortion. He always contradicts himself, showing an enormous hidden conflict.
    It also explains his contradictory desire for total abortion on demand in the country: he feels America should have known better than to “have him”, and now he will “do pay back”. It is very disturbing: and concordant with Obama.

    Very interesting. One thing that has always stood out to me is his continual expression of self hatred through every mechanism available to him. Because he hates himself, he transfers that hatred into others–including Americans at large.

  12. Another matter, regarding Dr Andrew G. Hodges forensic psychoanalysis of Obama is telling on the occasion in the 2008 campaign (3/29/2008, Johnstown PA) — you can see it here, and the self-confession of Obama is arresting:

    https://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=obama+i+don%27t+want+them+punished+with+a+baby&view=detail&mid=BB2D9CE99DCEB8B3D76EBB2D9CE99DCEB8B3D76E&FORM=VIRE

    Dr. Hodges infers, based on many references to Obama’s childhood reminiscences of his mother, that in his childhood years Stanley Ann Dunham, ever the self-absorbed promiscuous proto-liberal, advised him that she had considered abortion. Can you imagine the impact that had on a boy already abandoned by his father (if his father really was Barack Obama, Sr: she slept with many men—another shock to an innocent child, that was a fertile ground for his bitter cynicism and hatred today).

    He is simply re-telling the story of his own contemplated abortion, and confessing that he doesn’t want his daughters to suffer the way his mother, abandoned by Barack O, Sr., did.
    More reason for him to hate the lies and sham of America, of everything and everyone.

  13. “I often have wondered what Obama and his puppet masters end game is on race when fanning the flames on Ferguson, etc . I’m starting to believe it’s to have an excuse for instituting martial law.”
    No, there is no end game CAM. The current situation is meant to be eternal, a sponge that can be squeezed forever for whatever political and legislative gain can be realized,

  14. Steve Phoenix, that evidence and more all shows that Obama really turned out better than might have been expected. On a personal level he will always need our prayers.

  15. Steve Phoenix, that evidence and more all shows that Obama really turned out better than might have been expected.

    When that evidence is “the terror attacks were not nuclear,” that is NOT praise.
