There may have been a time when a discussion about racial issues was possible, but that window of opportunity quickly passed when the professional left decided to double down on division with a professional community organizer.
The professionally black have a vested ideological and financial interest in the retention of grievance. No amount of discussion will overcome or quench the institutional need to be perpetually aggrieved. (Apropos photo-credit Charleston, SC via CBS)
We can agree the shooting in Charleston South Carolina was a hate crime; we can even concede that it might be called terrorism – but that will never change the inherent one-sided nature of the conversation.
Call it whatever you want to call it. Hate Crimes, domestic racial terrorism, it really doesn’t matter. If the labels apply for a white person to intentionally kill a black person solely due to the color of their skin. Then what exactly is this:
You won’t find a single Black Lives Matter activist, supporter, proponent, or social justice warrior that will call black on white crime, “hate crimes”; even when the motive of the perpetrator is entirely racially defined.
Within the grievance community: Violence they like is speech, speech they don’t like is violence.
The same applies to behaviors within riots, looting, chaos and anarchy. Burn a city, or target only non-black businesses for torching, and it’s an expression of social justice speech. Arrest the criminal arsonist and you are oppressing the community.
The same AME church network being heralded in South Carolina, is the same AME church network which supports and promotes the Nation of Islam and New Black Panther Party. It is not guilt by association, it is guilt “of” association.
When School Teachers take public school kids to hear Louis Farakahaan tell them that all white people must be killed, you don’t see AME leadership stopping him. Quite the contrary, they are driving the school buses to the speech.
When the New Black Panther Party screams that all whites must be exterminated, or when the Nation of Islam demands that all white people be wiped off the face of the earth, you don’t see AME leadership distancing themselves. Quite the contrary, together they rally, march and give speeches on the same platform.
According to the Marc Lamont Hill’s of the world, racial knock out attacks, by blacks, against white people, for being white people, are not hate crimes; nor are they acts of terror regardless of whether the community is besieged by them.
Beat a white man/woman with a crow bar or baseball bat for being white, while shouting “fuck the white people, kill the white people“, and it doesn’t register as a ‘hate crime’, or racial attack. Reverse the races and the BLM mob will swarm to protect the oppressed bat wielding thug.
It’s a one-way conversation fraught with necessary intellectual dishonesty in order to reconcile the inherent hypocrisy. Carter Strange was beaten almost to death by a mob of 8 black kids in the same place where Dylann Roof carried out his attack – The black kids were never charged with hate crimes.
Another example, recently:
He believes this. In his mind he is not lying, he actually believes this – because in his reality it’s true. It doesn’t matter that such a claim is patently absurd; he has no other reference other than his belief that this claim is true.
Cumbria England – Calgary Canada – Tokyo Japan – Dunblane Scotland – Toronto Canada – Henan Province China – Cairn Australia – Oslo Norway – Hectorville Australia – Edmonton Canada – Paris France – Osaka Japan – Germany – etc. etc.
We could list pages and pages of citations consisting of hundreds of mass murder events, none of them defined as terrorism, happening in every single country in the past 5 years. The claim by President Obama is gobsmackingly ridiculous.
But he believes this.
Heck, a Germanwings commercial airplane was used in the French Alps to kill 130 people by a mass murderer, and what about the Malaysia Airlines plane that suffered a similar fate with twice the victims.
Take away gun ownership and it doesn’t stop the mass murder violence either. Just look at China, Japan, Canada and Australia to see mass murder with cars, and knives; My god – the number of mad men and women using knifes to kill kids by the dozens in schools in China, Japan and Australia is sickening.
Yet, much like the professionally black, the professionally liberal President Obama is disconnected from this reality and lives inside an alternate reality dependent on avoidance.
That conversation the professionally liberal want to keep having about race…
