Let's begin with the obvious fact that all lives matter! So why the "black"
emphasis here? What gave birth to such a movement?
President Obama has led the divisive rhetoric of white racism among the
police and others. He and his liberal followers have revived black racism of
the civil rights days. Martin Luther King asked for a colorblind society.
But politicians and black leaders have since undercut any attempt to achieve that end with racist programs and rhetoric. Affirmative action programs, laws providing minority "rights", most entitlements and redistribution efforts have all been racist.
Obama's policies have been most harmful to his own race. But he continues to inject race into nearly all of his speeches, even when he attempts to condemn police killings. It has been clear from the beginning that he has some degree of hatred for whites and feels compelled to make amends for past aggressions against blacks. So much for the benefit of being the first black president; so much for "hope and change."
Hillary has followed his lead. She has said such things as "we have to face up to the hard truth of injustice and systemic racism." She criticizes our police for their supposed unfair targeting of blacks. Both she and Obama have emboldened other liberals to speak such untruths and blacks to incite violence.
Right after the sniper's attacked Dallas police officers, a Nevada City Councilwoman posted to her public Facebook profile: "This was completely incited by America's police force. They have obviously been given directives to go out there and kill. It's insane and it's meant to create mayhem. And let me add to this: I'm pointing out that we can expect this when the police murder somebody. This is the oldest trick in the book.... it brings out more violence!."
Is it any surprise that such evil and false statements by liberals result from racist comments by our statist leaders?
And is it any surprise that a movement such as BLM - which is, like the new Black Panther movement, explicitly racist - would exist and has further convinced liberals/progressives that there is an epidemic of racist white police officers killing young black men?
It is time everyone look at, and react according to the facts - such as:
1. Fatal police shootings make up a much larger proportion of white and Hispanic homicide deaths than black homicide deaths. And the overwhelming majority of all those shooting victims were attacking the officer, often with a gun.
2. Nearly all black homicide victims had black killers; violent crimes overall are disproportionately committed by blacks.
3. Police officers - of all races - are also disproportionately endangered by black assailants (2.5 times higher than the rate of blacks killed by police).
4. 40% of cop killers have been black in the last decade.
5. There is no evidence that (in nearly all instances) blacks shot by white cops is due to racism.
6. No, BLM is not about "they matter also" or justice. While some followers may have good intentions, the movement is racist by design.
Racism among our leaders and the BLM prevents them from being objective and sticking to such facts.
Blacks show outrage about cop killing blacks, yet virtually ignore the large proportion of blacks killing blacks.
Thus, blacks certainly don't appear to matter to blacks, but they use white-black killings - regardless of who is to blame - to denounce whites.
This is evil and must stop. Further escalation of racial violence will make life dangerous for all of us.
During a recent trip to Australia, I found local people more concerned
about terrorism than most Americans. I noted that we need another major
attack in this country to wake people up about the evil of totalitarian
Islam. Well, we have had 2 more (not too major) attacks since and only
now are most people acting concerned. Unfortunately, the concern is
only about ISIS, not about the broader ideology that drives many Muslim
groups to terrorism.
Obama still wants such events to merely be workplace violence and refuses to acknowledge we are at war with totalitarian Islam: the totalitarian regimes that support the evil Islamic ideology (e.g. Iran, Saudi Arabia) and all the terrorist groups that implement it.
What will wake Obama up? His foreign policy is itself evil; he may be a
greater risk to Americans than our known enemy.
Understand that Muslim terrorism stemming from such an ideology has
existed since the 1920s with the Muslim Brotherhood - which Obama supported since 2009. Iran's Shia law has shown its ugly face at least since 1979 with the bombing of our Embassy. Saudi Arabia has long supported the spread of terrorism into Pakistan and Afghanistan. And now extremists have expanded their activities in Iraq, Syria and Libya under the name ISIS. It is unconscionable that our leaders can't define our enemy properly and act accordingly. It is inevitable that terrorist activity will get much worse before the U.S. leads a broad global force against it.
* Gun control is never the answer; yet Obama uses every example of violence to justify greater controls.
To show the stupidity of such thinking: as information of the San
Bernardino attack was proving it to be terrorism, Obama and others were
denying that very fact and focusing on gun control. And simultaneously,
Feinstein added an amendment to an ObamaCare-related bill to prevent
terrorists from purchasing guns! Like that could ever work! (Fortunately
that bill was defeated.)
When you add the miserable failure of ObamaCare and Obama's Marxist domestic policies that continue to prevent growth and recovery in this country, even liberals must see the need to change directions - and I don't mean "hope and change." We must get back to what America stood for: freedom and the protection of individual rights. Republicans must nominate the candidate who will focus on those principles.
You may say that you already know all this stuff. But have you really identified the more principled problem? Have you communicated similar concerns to everyone you know to help build awareness of the threats to this country - domestically as well as foreign? If you are liberal, have you even begun to find fault with the President you helped elect and to share your concerns with other liberals? It's time for everyone to be objective, not politically correct or party driven, and fight for a better future for this country.
