Obama’s Rush to Judgement and Identity Politics Contributed to their Deaths
By Michael Hoffman
Shortly before several Dallas police officers were killed by a sniper (or snipers) on July 7, President Obama spoke at a NATO summit in Poland and immediately rushed to judgment by insinuating that officers in Minnesota had done something seriously wrong in their treatment of a black motorist who died as a result of a traffic stop. He stated:
“When incidents like this occur, there’s a big chunk of our citizenry that feels as if, because of the color of their skin, they are not being treated the same, and that hurts, and that should trouble all of us. This is not just a black issue, not just a Hispanic issue. This is an American issue that we all should care about.”
What had “occurred,” Mr. President? How would you know what occurred only hours after the event had transpired?
Some of you may have watched a purported video on Facebook of the shooting of Philando Castile, the black man in Minnesota; this writer did not. Either way, neither Facebook nor the Establishment media is any legitimate medium for trying any suspect, whether cops accused of executing a motorist, or the motorist himself who was, allegedly, a licensed gun owner in possession of a firearm.
The cops in Minnesota and in another shooting in Louisiana, were tried by the media and found guilty. Obama seconded the “verdict” from his identity-politics perch.
Police, like anyone else, are innocent until proved guilty in a court of law. Yet, long before any notorious suspect faces a judge and jury, that suspect is tried in the media. In 1977 David Berkowitz was found solely guilty of the Son of Sam murders in New York City, in the same week in which he was arrested. Newsweek magazine made that erroneous determination long before Berkowitz appeared before a judge. It has since been discovered that Berkowitz was only one of the shooters, and that he was part of a conspiracy by a Satanic cult.
Before Charles Manson was convicted, President Richard Nixon decreed him guilty of the Tate-La Bianca murders. Many to this day believe, wrongly, that Manson ordered the murders or was present when they occurred. Both notions are false, but Nixon’s verdict set the stage for a permanent misapprehension of the facts.
The Establishment media convicted Ted Kaczyinski of being the sole Unabomber long before he faced a judge in court. Kaczyinski did not perpetrate all of the bombings attributed to Unabomber. He had been monitored by the Federal government at the time he was supposedly an underground bomber. The government did nothing to seek other possible suspects or collaborators, and from the time the suspect was apprehended, the mainstream media reported with absolute certainty that Kaczynski was the “lone nut” responsible.
The United States is saddled with the worst, most conceited, corporate-mouthpiece media in the world, as well as with a President who is as much of an irresponsible blowhard as Nixon, though, to be fair, Mr. Nixon was not speaking n the midst of a racially-charged, powder keg atmosphere.
Mr. Obama was acting morally superior when he questioned whether blacks and whites are treated the same in America in the context of the Minnesota traffic stop. I have a bulletin for him: if the driver in Minnesota had been a gun-carrying, poor white redneck in a pickup truck, the liberal media would have sided with the police, and questioned whether the redneck had somehow threatened the officers with his gun. There would have been no knee-jerk sympathy for the white motorist.
President Obama fuels the sense of entitlement and moral superiority of black Americans. Is this good for our country and national unity? Should any race of people be encouraged toward supremacist self-regard?
The racist terrorist massacre in Dallas is being blamed on guns. If the cops had been mowed down by an automobile, would Detroit get the blame? Obama calls for “gun control” in the wake of Dallas. Shamefully, he does not pause for even a moment to consider the role which anti-White racism played in the mass murder of law enforcement in Texas. He irresponsibly scapegoats the guns which the anti-White hater utilized to do his murderous work.
Do the whites who are relentlessly derided as hereditary bigots in the Hollywood media have any right to be free from defamation and the resulting hate crimes that occur against them? Does anyone consider the Hollywood factor in our national conversation about race? Certainly not. The so-called “conversation” proceeds from the premise that working class whites without a university indoctrination (“education”), are moral lepers guilty of terrible transgressions such as supporting Donald Trump, the Second Amendment and a wall on the border with Mexico.
Police officers have been murdered in Dallas in part due to a reckless, politically correct President as well as a corrupt media that, in its arrogance, believes it is entitled to try and convict suspects before they face a jury of their peers. This situation must change before more innocents perish and a full-fledged race war is ignited in our nation.
