Ferguson Activists/Thugivists “Lost Voices” Try To Disrupt President Obama’s Selma Speech… (Video)

They tried the ‘We Shut S**t Down’ approach. It Didn’t go over too well. Hat Tip Froggie for Video:

(Via Think Progress) On Saturday, President Obama spoke at the foot of the Edmund Pettus Bridge on the 50th anniversary of the attack on voting rights protesters known as Bloody Sunday.

“Our march is not yet finished, but we are getting closer,” he said. ” If Selma taught us anything, it’s that our work is never done – the American experiment in self-government gives work and purpose to each generation.”

As he spoke, a group of protesters [Lost Voices Group] wearing shirts with airbrushed portraits of those killed by police started banging on drums and chanted, “Ferguson is here. We want change!” and “This is what democracy looks like.”

Obama did not pause his speech or acknowledge the interruption. But some older people in the crowd became angry, shouting at the young protesters: “Your vote is your voice! Get registered!”

A few of the demonstrators were removed by state troopers, and the rest agreed to remain silent. (read more)

ANOTHER REPORT – SELMA – Civil rights leader Bernard Lafayette was listening intently to President Barack Obama’s speech in Selma on Saturday afternoon when he began to hear what sounded like a drum beat and chants of “We want change, we want change.”

After several minutes, he rose from his chair and, accompanied by the Rev. Darryl Gray, a Southern Christian Leadership Conference friend, they made their way through a large crowd behind him to where the commotion came from.

Lafayette said one of the young demonstrators told him they were from Ferguson, Missouri, where a police officer fatally shot a young, unarmed black man last year — an event that led to weeks of violent protests.

“I asked them why they were making such a ruckus, and one told me they were upset that the president wasn’t addressing their concerns, but never really told me what they were,” said Lafayette.

crybaby[…] He said one of the demonstrators began crying that nobody would listen to their complaints and Lafayette let him know that he had been arrested 27 times during the protests he was involved in and once was targeted for assassination in Selma.

    I love this article…

    ““It wasn’t spontaneous,” said Lafayette, who had been sitting next to his wife, Kate, in a special seated section. “It was well planned and when I asked who their leader was, it turned out to be an older woman.”

    He said one of the demonstrators began crying that nobody would listen to their complaints and Lafayette let him know that he had been arrested 27 times during the protests he was involved in and once was targeted for assassination in Selma.”

    It is extremely bizarre to see the Edmund Pettus bridge being such a key focal point for Obama and the black activists.

    Edmund Pettus was a highly prominent leader in the KKK.

    He is correct because that is exactly what democracy looks like. It is the mob. And that is why the founders gave us a Republic. You should not be allowed to vote if that basic civics fact escapes you.

    Go out into the forest where nature reigns supreme. Look for tinder. Judge the relationship of tinder to those forces which could arrest its activation. Feel safe? Ok, then ask yourself some what if questions. Of course, the really big question is this: What if the tinder I see is joined by tinder I don’t see and collectively when fired it spreads beyond anything I had predicted? Can this forest respond to protect itself or would it be doomed by such a surprise?

    Now, think of Obama as a “tinder gatherer” within the US forest. Think of “hot spots” where he comes to gather up the tinder and let it know that at such and such a time it is to be activated. He does this under the guise of being a former “community organizer” back in the day.

    Selma then is truly seen as a moment in time to gather tinder. Ferguson is another place where tinder is to be found. Now look at Washington, D.C. Here is where our national “fire department” resides.

    Look at how Obama has strangled these “first responders” for six years. How fast and what equipment could come from this confused location to fight those tinder fires that have been gathered and made ready within our borders? “Hands up, don’t shoot!” means what relative to my scenario? Keep away until we get this fire really going!

    The bad guys need time, more time to get all their pieces set in place for those battles they want to wage.

    Obama has given both the “internal” and those “external” bad guys all the time they have needed and requested. How many years have gone by when Obama gives Iran extra time…extra time to do what? How many years has he had Holder of our “justice” department tell people to stay away from those who wish to set fires and tried to deny those who have “warned” about excess tinder being present?

    Fire them up! When will this order be given and how will it arrive? You sense something coming over the horizon, don’t you? Your senses tell you something is just not right.

    Trust your senses, they come from nature, the same nature that rules the forests. “I had a feeling” is nature calling to you, listen closely for it just may be the truth.

    Obama loves to play with matches and watch the fires he has created…

    For heaven’s sake I wish this younger generation would Google what the protection of “free speech” means. I had young realtor use profanity in an email to me because I told him he wasn’t behaving professionally, so I called his employer. Oops.The boss was another 20something who told me in no uncertain terms that her employee had “free speech.”

    so amazing that SELMA is the FOCUS of this media event….yes, Selma was where they marched, and yes, civil rights laws were passed, and then a NEW history of Selma began….so is SELMA BETTER OFF TODAY? After the War on Poverty and the Great Society began, are blacks better off today. Here is the Selma story in the after mass of all the marching and fighting and forced changing and everyone getting what they demanded:

    Though half a century has passed since that seminal moment in civil rights history, Selma in many ways remains a city of dreams unfulfilled. True, a key battle was won with the passage of the Voting Rights Act and the abolishment of Jim Crow. True, Selma now has black leaders in positions of power, including the mayor, police chief, district attorney, six out of eight city council members, and four out of five school board members. True, Selma’s black population is quick to speak out against injustices – and has overcome innumerable ones.

    But the journey toward equality is still a long march. Black children here are more likely to grow up in poverty, less likely to graduate, less likely to attend college, and less likely to become homeowners. Sections of Selma remain sharply segregated, partly because of white flight and partly by choice. Jobs are scarce, and even harder to obtain for those who lack adequate education and skills.

    t seems as if things used to be better in Selma.. There were plenty of jobs, and a person willing to work hard could make a good living. A lot of plants have shut down, and technology has forced layoffs at others.

    The search for viable employment has led Selma into a perilous spiral. After hitting a peak population of 28,400 people in 1960, the city’s population declined significantly. The US Census Bureau reported 20,756 residents in 2010, with a population that is 80.3 percent black and 18 percent white.

    Countywide, the population peaked in 1960 at 56,667 people, dropping to 43,820 in 2010, with a population that is 69.4 percent black and 29.1 percent white
    .
    The median household income in Selma from 2009 to 2013 was $22,478 – nearly half that of the state – with 41.9 percent of people in the city living below the poverty level. Dallas County, of which Selma is the seat, ranks as the poorest county in the Black Belt, with 36.8 percent of residents living below poverty level. Nearby Perry, Wilcox, and Sumter counties follow closely behind.

    Education is critical to economic development. While Selma has several large industries, employers say there is a dearth of candidates with the skills needed to perform the work.

    The Selma City Schools system, was taken over last year by the Alabama State Department of Education after a months-long investigation into allegations of academic issues, poor student performance, shoddy record keeping, and sexual misconduct.

    The Selma City Schools district served 4,140 students, 97 percent of whom were black and 81 percent of whom qualified for free or reduced-price lunches. Only 4 percent of students were enrolled in gifted programs and only 3 percent took at least one of three available Advanced Placement classes. At Selma High School, which was 100 percent black, only 6 percent of students were enrolled in advanced math or physics, and only 9 percent took chemistry. Twenty percent of the high school’s teachers were in their first or second year of teaching.
    Southside High School, in Dallas County, reported 98 percent African-American enrollment, with 94 percent of students receiving free or reduced lunch. Only 13 percent of students were enrolled in advanced math, 9 percent took chemistry, and 5 percent took physics. No Advanced Placement classes were reported. And 48 percent of the teachers were in their first or second year of teaching.

    Selma High reported a graduation rate of 67 percent in 2013, according to the Alabama State Department of Education. Southside High School graduated 86 percent of its students.

    But the Black Belt’s well-publicized problems – high poverty, struggling schools, eroding populations, and scarce jobs – are the same problems other cities face as post-civil rights America redefines itself, says Cynthia Fleming, professor emerita at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville and author of “In the Shadow of Selma,” which chronicles Wilcox County’s civil rights movement.
    During her research, she spent hours poring over tax records, and she was struck by the realization that many of the Black Belt’s most impoverished families can trace their lineage directly back to slavery, and some of the wealthiest families can trace their lineage back to slave ownership.
    “How do you change that?” Ms. Fleming asks. “Simply changing the laws won’t change their fate. There’s got to be something bigger.”

    As of the 2010 census, there were 20,756 people residing in the city. The racial makeup of the city was 80.3% Black or African American, 18.0% White,
    As of the census of 2000, there were 20,512 people, The racial makeup of the city was 69.68% Black or African American, 28.77% White.
    As of the census of 1960, there were 28,400 people.
    As of the census of 1970, it had dropped to 27,400 people
    It continues to drop to the estimated number of 19,92 in 2013.
    In 2010, there were 8,196 households, out of which
    30.3% had children under the age of 18 living with them;
    34.2% were married couples living together,
    27.2% had a female householder with no husband present, and
    34.8% were non-families.
    . The median age was 36 years. For every 100 females there were 78.2 males.
    For every 100 females age 18 and over, there were 72.0 males.
    The median income for a household in the city was $21,261, and the median income for a family was $28,345. Males had a median income of $29,769 versus $18,129 for females.
    The per capita income for the city was $13,369.
    About 26.9% of families and 31.7% of the population were below the poverty line.

    so who do you BLAME? THE WHITE FOLKS?

    To succeed in life, one needs get a degree or learn a salable trade, obey the law, not use drugs and drink alcohol responsibly, save having children until after marriage, and comport oneself in a reasonable manner. This will be true even if working Americans are taxed at a rate of 90%. The problems of poverty are not money problems. Having grown up poor, I know this. Those who chose to not be poor are not. People choose poverty, criminality and victim hood most of the time. If tax payers were asked to only support true victims we would have no issue. But as it is we pay for the ridiculous choices of others, and support the criminal class from cradle to grave.

    The progressives call that racism. But honestly? When somebody sticks a gun into my face to steal my car and I have paid for everything for that teenager from his vaccines to his breakfast, I really don’t care what his race is.

    (And as an aside–because I just watched an episode of Lock Up– it would be darling if anyone who wanted to carry a Black Lives Matter sign first had to spend a day at a maximum security prison to really get to know the gentle giants. One should really know one’s cause. Also, since the progs have decimated Dr Alveda King because of her pro life work, I would like the Black Lives Matter protestors to visit an abortion clinic in any city, to come close to the tiniest black lives, who never had a chance to feel the sun on their faces. Look at the murdered babies and tell us that Black Lives Matter).
