If people are rioting and throwing Molotov cocktails at the police, what do you do if you’re Barack Obama? You blame the cops for use of “excessive force against peaceful protesters.”
An 18 year old African American gets shot by the police and it always turns to rioting. What started out as a peaceful protest sparked into five nights of looting and rioting. And whose community always suffers from this? The same community where the incident occurred. But racial division and tensions, already strained to their limits thanks to people like Eric Holder, who consistently play the race card when referring to people who don’t support President Obama, are further pushed to the breaking point by racist hate group “The New Black Panthers,” and race hustlers like Al Sharpton.
But like a good “divider in chief,” Barack Obama always comes down on the side against the police without knowing all the facts. The federal government has no business getting involved in this situation. The federal government had no business being involved in the Trayvon Martin case either. Right now, Attorney General Eric Holder is in Ferguson, talking with the family of the young man in question. Why does he need to be there at all? What end does Holder’s presence there serve? I was under the impression that, by being elected President, Barack Obama would heal all the old wounds: that he would bring us together under one big, happy, integrated family banner.
Well, that hasn’t happened. And, since he was elected, racial tensions in the United States are worse than they were in 1965. So much for the healing power of the “human rainbow,” eh?
Every single day, in cities like Los Angeles and Chicago, hundreds of young black people are murdered. Where is the “outrage” from the federal government about that? Oh, that’s right, those kids were killed by other black kids. Getting involved in this case also helps the president’s terrible poll numbers among black voters by showing them “he’s on their side.” What a crock! Obama’s – and especially Eric Holder’s – “involvement” in this situation is not warranted. But Obama and Holder don’t want to waste an opportunity to make themselves look like they give a damn. Too bad they haven’t done anything else to actually “help” the black community in regards to getting the exceedingly high unemployment numbers down.
This statement, made by President Obama today, was, at best, laughable in its content:
“There is never an excuse for violence against police, or for those who would use this tragedy as a cover for vandalism or looting. There’s also no excuse for police to use excessive force against peaceful protests, or to throw protestors in jail for lawfully exercising their First Amendment rights. And here, in the United States of America, police should not be bullying or arresting journalists who are just trying to do their jobs and report to the American people on what they see on the ground. Put simply, we all need to hold ourselves to a high standard, particularly those of us in positions of authority.
I know that emotions are raw right now in Ferguson, and there are certainly passionate differences about what has happened. There are going to be different accounts of how this tragedy occurred. There are going to be differences in terms of what needs to happen going forward. That’s part of our democracy. But let’s remember that we’re all part of one American family. We are united in common values, and that includes belief in equality under the law; a basic respect for public order and the right to peaceful public protest; a reverence for the dignity of every single man, woman and child among us; and the need for accountability when it comes to our government.
So now is the time for healing. Now is the time for peace and calm on the streets of Ferguson. Now is the time for an open and transparent process to see that justice is done. And I’ve asked that the Attorney General and the U.S. Attorney on the scene continue to work with local officials to move that process forward. They will be reporting to me in the coming days about what’s being done to make sure that happens.”
“We all need to hold ourselves to a high standard, particularly those of us in positions of authority.” Those words, coming from Barack Obama’s lips, are not only laughable, but a lie. He actually thinks he’s held his administration to a “high standard?”
Since when has this administration E-V-E-R been held to a “Higher Standard?” Did I miss that when it happened?
You can’t play on both sides of the fence; you are either for law and order…or you are not. And if I may point out: when a guy is in front of you with a lit Molotov Cocktail, and is ready to throw it at you…he’s not a “peaceful protester.”Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
