Did Obama’s divisive racial Rhetoric over Travon Martin motivate the Aaron Alexis shooting?
SOL | 9/17/2013 | SOL of course

Posted on 09/16/2013 9:09:13 PM PDT by sickoflibs

It’s an obvious question. After George Zimmerman was acquitted Obama got on TV and gave a very racially divisive speech condemning the law, the legal system and America’s treatment of blacks.

He made it clear he believes that blacks are treated almost as bad as they were in the 1950s, in spite of his four years in charge making progress. And Dividing America into opposition groups against one another is how Obama won two elections.

And now this Navy Yard mass shooting

After all as liberals endlessly lecture us : ‘words mean things’ and 'they have consequences'.

After all they tell us that these acts of violence are always caused by others irresponsible words not the perpetrator.

And as Obama said, if he had a son he would have looked just like Gunman Aaron Alexis, or was it Travon Martin , same idea.

It seems like Obama needs to tone down his racially divisive rhetoric, to save lives. Military lives. Stop the hate Obama.

Interesting that you should post this question. Just read the Newbergh Address of General George Washington. He is quoted to have said, “And let me conjure you,” he concluded dramatically, “ in the name of our common Country—as you value your own sacred honor—as you respect the rights of humanity; and as you regard the Military and National character of America, to express your utmost horror and detestation of the Man who wishes, under any specious pretences, to overturn the liberties of our Country, and who wickedly attempts to open the flood Gates of Civil discord, and deluge our rising Empire in Blood.”

I’m studying the General and am quoting the quote from an article by William M. Fowler, Jr.

I’m sure that MSNBC has already named George Zimmerman as one of his accomplices.

"You know, when Aaron Alexis, was first shot, I said that this could have been my son. Another way of saying that is Aaron Alexis, 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 history that -- that doesn't go away."

I don’t really like vanities, but I liked your post. The first thought that occurred to me today when I saw a picture of Aaron Alexis, was the one you had. Where is Obama claiming fatherhood of this poor, oppressed, misunderstood young man, Aaron Alexis?

I wonder what our “Black community leaders” will have to say about this heinous hate crime? Crickets, I bet....

My youngest son works in the Washington Navy Yard. I was just getting ready to leave for work when he called me. He said “dad, I am ok”. I said “good, what is going on?” He said, “turn on the news.”

LOL. Last place to go for information: one shooter...two shooters...three shooters...shots at Fort Bolling...possible coordinated terrorist attack at multiple military installations...only two shooters now, according to reports...no, wait, three shooters...no shots at Fort Bolling after all...no evidence to support more than one shooter...possible accomplice...one shooter definitely confirmed...accomplice still at large...Fort Bolling reports confirmed false...no accomplice after all, pending confirmation...just a lone gunman as it stands now....

I think that theory has crossed the minds of all honest people today.

And the question is easy.

Would the shooting have taken place today if Obama were not president?

The answer is easier.

This was my first thought. They have victimized racist blacks so worked up over Travon Martin - “It’s open season on black men!” - there have already been several hate crime attacks where innocent white men have been severely injured and killed in response for Martin - that when I saw this guy, I immediately thought it’s a racist murder for Martin.

If it was any other reason, my guess is the media would be declaring it. The collective “Huh? We have NO idea!” from the MSM leads me to think so. This guy could have been wandering around telling people he was going to kill whites and the MSM will NEVER admit it.

This is exactly what I told my wife when the MSM finally narrowed it down to one of Obama’s sons doing the shooting.

Was it another racially motivated “polar bear” hunting expedition?

Obama’s racial divide has caused these to escalate since the Trayvon self defense shooting and verdict.

And one last comment. Obama will not tone down his language. He will ramp it up if anything. He and his white hating wife enjoy nothing better than to see many more whites laying inside a chalk mark.

I could be wrong and the guy was just lost and going out for skittles and tea.

The usual lefty douchebags are already screaming about "THE AR15!!"

Bears Repeating over and over again: He took the AR-15 and a pistol from LEO/guards that he killed with Joe Biden's weapon of choice - a shotgun...

Which he managed to bring into a "Gun Free Zone" with heavy security...

Absolutely Obama caused this.

Sounds like a list of middle aged white people. If that's the case, NBC, ABC, CBS, and CNN will totally 'miss' that part of the story. Same for the MSM types like the New York Times and Washington Post.

If a white man had killed 12 blacks in a rampage like yesterday, it's all that the alphabets would be talking about...

He didn’t use an AR-15 at all, actually. No AR-15 was involved in the crime.

The only AR-15 involved at all was the one that stopped him, fired by law enforcement.

Overtaken by events. I posted that earlier on, before the FBI report came out.

Thank you, though. Always good to reinforce the facts when we get them in.

Less than it was a couple of years ago. Then it was maybe one in three, at least where I worked on Ft. Hood. Then the Obama cuts began.

Why? Couple of reasons. One that's where much of the technical expertise is. Many of those are former military, like this guy. Two, they don't have authority from Congress to hire enough civil servants to do their missions. They also have ceilings on the number of military personnel, also set by Congress. OH, and contractors are cheaper, IF one includes pension costs, which are "up front" for contractors, but not even funded for military and civil servants (until the people start collecting those benefits), as well as certain other costs for military personnel, which are funded from different accounts
