Obama Back to Race-Baiting

The Race-Baiter-(Along with general nation-wrecking)- in-Chief has done again. Rather that come clean and note that the facts turned out to be quite different compared to back when he, the media, and many others decided what they were immediately following the shooting death of Trayvon Martin, Obama made full use of his time - telling us that the main problem is that whites are just too afraid of American Blacks. Note that this was not the normal, off-the-cuff type of statement that has helped to make the US a joke; Obama had almost a full week to make this statement.

"You know, when Trayvon Martin was first shot, I said that this could have been my son. Another way of saying that is Trayvon Martin could have been me, 35 years ago. And when you think about why, in the African-American community at least, there's a lot of pain around what happened here, I think it's important to recognize that the African-American community is looking at this issue through a set of experiences and a -- and a history that -- that doesn't go away. There are very few African-American men in this country who haven't had the experience of being followed when they were shopping in a department store. That includes me.

"There are probably very few African-American men who haven't had the experience of walking across the street and hearing the locks click on the doors of cars. That happens to me -- at least before I was a senator. There are very few African-Americans who haven't had the experience of getting on an elevator and a woman clutching her purse nervously and holding her breath until she had a chance to get off. That happens often.

"And, you know, I -- I don't want to exaggerate this, but those sets of experiences inform how the African-American community interprets what happened one night in Florida. And it's inescapable for people to bring those experiences to bear. The African-American community is also knowledgeable that there is a history racial disparities in the application of our criminal laws, everything from the death penalty to enforcement of our drug laws. And that ends up having an impact in terms of how people interpret the case.

Of course, Obama must pay the obligatory lip-service to the enormous problem of violence in the American Black community, but even thus must be treated as a result of the wrongful events of the past. By his measuring stick, all peoples that have been subjected to institutionalized abuse and discrimination should be expected to commit far more violent crimes than other groups. This explains why Ireland is chock-full of violent criminals and why the Christians of the Near and Middle East engage in similar criminal activity. Let's not forget the Jews - when I see a group of Hasidim, I run.

"Now, this isn't to say that the African-American community is naive about the fact that African-American young men are disproportionately involved in the criminal justice system, that they're disproportionately both victims and perpetrators of violence. It's not to make excuses for that fact.

"Although, black folks do interpret the reasons for that in a historical context. They understand that, some of the violence that takes place in poor black neighborhoods around the country is born out of a very violent past in this country. And that the poverty and dysfunction that we see in those communities can be traced to a very difficult history.

"And so, the fact that sometimes that's unacknowledged adds to the frustration. And the fact that a lot of Africa-American boys are painted with a broad brush and the excuses given, ``Well, there are these statistics out there that show that African-American boys are more violent,'' using that as an excuse to then see sons treated differently causes pain......."

At no point does Obama state that, although he wishes that George Zimmerman had never attempted to actually see where Trayvon Martin was heading (If we have to find a fault with Zimmerman's actions), the picture is now clear - Zimmerman was getting beaten up pretty badly when he shot Martin. He also does not apologize for opening his yap when it was time for the cops to do their investigation

Obama desperately wants to continue cultivating the victim mentality of American Blacks. It is a crucial part of his agenda. As the writer in Gates of Vienna noted, his ultimate goal is to move towards a real redistribution of wealth. If he doesn't have a class of victims that believe that they need redistribution, then he would have no reason to take away for some to hand out to others.

His words on the radio interviewer in 2008 are terrifying, mostly because of the lack of any response from the people. He claimed that the problem is the fact  that we have not been able to get past the restrictions placed in us by our Founders:

“If you look at the victories and failures of the civil rights movement and its litigation strategy in the court.I think where it succeeded was to invest formal rights in previously dispossessed people, so that now I would have the right to vote. I would now be able to sit at the lunch counter and order as long as Icould pay for it I’d be o.k. But, the Supreme Court never ventured into the issues of redistribution of wealth, and of more basic issues such as political and economic justice in society. To that extent, as radical as I think people try to characterize the Warren Court, it wasn’t that radical. It didn’t break free from the essential constraints that were placed by the founding fathers in the Constitution…”

This is what he was referring to when he stated that the Constitution is "fundamentally flawed".
