Obama picks scab off America’s racial wound
The Washington Times ^ | 7/21/2013 | Joe Curl

Posted on 07/21/2013 7:07:10 PM PDT by markomalley

President Obama, America’s first half-black, half-white president, went to the White House podium last week to address the nation’s most racially divisive case since Rodney King.

But he wasn’t there to calm the country. And he certainly wasn’t there to start some “conversation” on race — he doesn’t find those “particularly productive,” he said, what with all the listening. Instead, he came out unannounced to the briefing room to talk about “how people are feeling.”

Not all people, mind you, just black people — and especially, as always, himself.

“Trayvon Martin could have been me 35 years ago,” said the half-white man raised mostly in Hawaii by two white grandparents. He ticked off a list of racist actions he said whites take whenever a black man (especially him) is nearby — locking car doors, clutching purses closer. “I don’t want to exaggerate this,” he said, exaggerating wildly as he labeled all white people racist.

The president, it turned out, had come to pick the scab off America’s healing wound. The nation had been injured, and everything was bloody: A Hispanic man shot a black teenager in a vicious street fight. No one but George Zimmerman and Trayvon Martin knows how it all started, who struck first, why a seemingly meaningless altercation ended in death.

But a jury, picked by the prosecutors and the defense, listened to three weeks of testimony. At the end of the trial, the jurors heard the legal instructions of the judge. They weighed the evidence, then applied the law. What happened that night in a Florida neighborhood was tragic, the jury decided, but it wasn’t murder.

Violence, sporadic but intense, swept through communities across the country for a week after the verdict, but was subsiding. The president, however, wanted to reopen the case.

I’m surprised he forgot the part about the jury “acting stupidly”.

The media wants him to be Lincoln, JFK, Reagan and now he wants to identify with Martin? Who is this clown? Here in Oz we’re laughing ourselves silly like some retarded seal clapping our hands because we’re about to snort through our nose ....The US doesn’t or the media doesn’t realize how much of an idiot he’s shown himself to be overseas.

2008 elections = Obama exploits race; massive turnout.
2010 elections = Obama voters stay home.
2012 elections = Huge dropoff in Obama vote v 2008.
2014 elections = Obama exploits race; starts early.

Obama's imaginary proposition of Trayvon Martin being White and George Zimmerman being black is not even accurate. If Obama were even remotely honest, he would have said words to the effect of George Zimmerman being black and Trayvon Martin being Hispanic, because that is how Mr. Zimmerman rightly regarded himself.

But don’t ask our so-called “conservative” House to cut off some of his funding. Because they won’t listen anyway. They’ll just give him more.

“The US doesn’t or the media doesn’t realize how much of an idiot he’s shown himself to be overseas.”

Some of us do. That’s why we’ve totally turned away from the mass media in the US, and now depend on foreign sources for our news. It’s tragic how the UK and Canadian media have much more accurate and timely information than our “news” networks. And, of course, websites where we can find like minded souls.

There are now 2 divided Americas, one that’s portrayed publicly, and the other that’s mostly below the radar.

With all the White hate going on towards White Americans, who would want to go near any blacks anymore!

Exactly. I watch the TV news here and stream some stuff from other countries. I read the India Times and the Tokyo Times then check stories in the US and they’re completely different in that the US MSM distorts the fact somewhat giving a completely different slant. Then too stories that happen in the US that are important but are not broadcasted. It’s a totally different US here.

The judicial system once weighed the law against facts and evidence. Now Obama wants it also weighed against the black perspective. Soon to come the Muslim perspective and Sharia.

THis is Hitler tactic.

You go in ghettos and you see white women and their kids and white men with their half black kids.

None of these people really follow the news, they pretty much survive working motels and what not with other blacks.

Check it out, then come this Hitler bull and many throughout Europe as a result back then ended up not liking their jewish friends any more out of the blue.

This crap is really vicious and bring bloodshed and division where there aren’t any.

Obama and his enablers are coward who do not want to face their own faults and foreign enemies.

THe media wants him to create crimes against humanity and promote ghetto divisions between whites and blacks where there are not any.

Clint Eastwood's movie “In the Line of Fire” was recently on TV. In the movie, the bad guy [John Malkovich] taunts Secret Service Agent Frank Horrigan [Eastwood] for not taking the bullet meant for JFK. He tells him [Eastwood] he intends to repeat November 1963 on the current occupant of the White House now running for reelection.

Fast forward to today.

How many Secret Service Agents would take a bullet for Dear Leader?

He wants to incite a race war. Nothing would make him happier Freegards LEX

And he needs for a number of Blacks to become "willing" sacrifices for "the cause". He and other race-baiters are itching for violence to erupt so they can declare martial law and start the confiscation...Benghazi was the only sacrificial offering to Evil...

Here in Wilmington, there was a rally for Trayvon on Sunday. The Mayor, County Exec. and Governor all showed up.

Meanwhile, over the same weekend. Five young black males were shot, all presumbably by other black males.

Not a peep...

Actually, that’s incorrect.

The situation of “nothing would make him happier” is the same as it is for all leftists -

using the power of the State to murder their political opponents.

The “race war” is simply a step stool to get there.

The president, it turned out, had come to pick the scab off America’s healing wound.

What healing wound? The scab, such as it was, had been ripped off by Sharpton and his ilk the moment the jury verdict had been announced and long before Obama gave his disjointed statement.

All of them. Diss Obama if you want, but don't insult the Secret Service. I've met several of them who work counterfitting details and they're all consumate professionals. They may not like or respect whoever is in the White House but they also know that defending the president with their lives if necessary is part of the job.

“accurate and fair”?

Boy, that’s relative even in a perfect world.

Domestically, I’d have to say IBD and WSJ probably have the most analytical of coverage. Christian News Sevice good, too.

For going where domestic media refuses, I’d have to give it to the UK Daily Mail and Telegraph. Canada Free Press, like FR, also takes on those subjects the alphabet networks won’t.

If we didn’t have the web, we’d need to have something akin to underground radio...

“..How many Secret Service Agents would take a bullet for Dear Leader?...”

You’d probably be surprised at the answer. I’d venture to say that the majority of them would.

Right or wrong, they’re professionals. They do their job regardless of their personal opinion.

And with this clown, you can be sure he probably hand-picked his own loyal SS from the pool.
