Black Teen Allegedly Guns Down Unarmed White Man Begging ‘Don’t Shoot’…Liberal Outrage?

The “hands up, don’t shoot” narrative surrounding the Ferguson, Mo., police-involved shooting death of Michael Brown has been exposed as a false and misleading description of what actually happened.

As Western Journalism reported last week, even the Washington Post has exposed the “Four Pinocchios” falsehood about the chant that’s been repeated by so many angry protestors, liberal politicians, and agenda-driven race-baiting agitators.

Liberal Post columnist Jonathan Capehart, who is himself African-American, wrote a piece in which he expressed deep regret at having once supported the “hands up, don’t shoot” rallying cry embraced by race-activists such as Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson. Predictably, Capehart has been attacked by the Left for his truth-telling.

Given the passion with which Sharpton, Jackson, and others condemned what they saw as the racial component in Michael Brown’s death on a residential street in Ferguson, one can reasonably ask where the liberal outrage is over the senseless murder that just happened in Philadelphia.

According to the NBC station in the City of Brotherly Love, it was an apparent black-on-white crime. The suspects are three African-American teens. The victim was a 51-year-old husband and father who was walking his dog along a quiet street. And before he was gunned down in an apparent robbery, police say this man did, in fact, beg for his life, crying, “Please don’t shoot me, please don’t shoot me.”

So far, there have been no reported protests over the senseless death of James Patrick Stuhlman. No marches against black-on-white crime. No outraged Sharpton or Jackson. No Justice Department probe into a possible hate crime. Stuhlman died on the street with his dog at his side.

Watch: What Just Happened In Congress Takes Ferguson Madness To A Whole New Level

Congress play

It’s been more than a week since the grand jury in St. Louis County, Missouri said that police officer Darren Wilson should face no criminal charges, that his fatal shooting of Michael Brown was justified, that Wilson did not act improperly in the line of duty.

But the protests, the passions and the posturing over the Ferguson shooting and its aftermath have not subsided. In fact, in some respects, feelings about Ferguson and the “hands up, don’t shoot” theme adopted by protestors and those supporting them have greatly intensified.

From the White House to the Congress to the cities and streets of America, the heat over Ferguson and tensions over race in America are being turned up by those who, it appears, are seeking to exploit the “crisis of confidence” in the fairness of law enforcement.

Civil rights activist/agitator Jesse Jackson is now traveling the country firing up angry crowds with provocative rhetoric. As reported on breitbart.com, Jackson went so far as to say this in Portland, Oregon about the grand jury that found no cause to indict officer Wilson:

“The fact is, for three and a half months, this was no jury of substance,” Jackson said during his speech according to OregonLive. “No jury of integrity. No real America. This was a hangman’s noose,” Jackson said to the crowd.

While he didn’t use inflammatory words like “hangman’s noose” to attack the integrity of the American justice system, Attorney General Eric Holder was also on the road Monday speaking to impassioned crowds.

In a speech in Atlanta at historic Ebenezer Baptist Church, when he was interrupted by Ferguson protestors, Holder showed sympathy and support for their feelings and their efforts.

While he reportedly didn’t try to correct any misconceptions or misgivings about the Ferguson grand jury’s findings of fact, the head of the Justice Department told the cheering audience that he will take significant action in the coming days with regard to federal policing guidelines, as CNN notes:

In the speech, Holder also said he plans to announce “rigorous new standards” for federal law enforcement “to help end racial profiling, once and for all.”

And in Washington, D.C., Ferguson fallout continues to be felt and ill feelings toward police fomented.

Not only did President Obama host a series of White House meetings Monday on race relations and community policing, but on the floor of Congress, members of the Congressional Black Caucus focused on Ferguson and the “hands up, don’t shoot” narrative that the grand jury thoroughly discounted in its final report.

Watch: Jesse Jackson Is Left SPEECHLESS After Black Ferguson Protester Calls Him Out In Epic Rant

jessejackson

As he attempts to leave a fast food restaurant near the scene of a Ferguson, Mo. police shooting that sparked riots and looting across the St. Louis area, Jesse Jackson was stopped by at least two protesters criticizing his ostensible leadership within the black community.

“Are you here to support us?” one man asked in the filmed interaction. “We haven’t seen you.”

Though Jackson sat quietly during most of the incident, when he attempted to address the concerns, he was immediately cut off.

After asking the cameraman to wait, he responded, “Ain’t no wait a minute, brother — this is real!”

The activists addressed Jackson’s apparent disinterest in being directly involved in the protests, suggesting that he is more interested in his own causes.

“We haven’t seen you marching at all,” the protester chided. “When you gonna stop selling us out, Jesse?”

He concluded that Jackson is “not even a brother” and that, unless he intends to “pay the bond of those brothers that’s been locked up,” he can “keep moving.”

Epic: Ferguson Protesters Just Told Jesse Jackson To Shove It After He Got Greedy

When anything involving race happens anywhere, you can be sure that Reverend Jesse Jackson will make it there.

Naturally, with a black man being shot in Ferguson, Missouri, he shows up. But this time, the Reverend didn’t quite think out his strategy; and when he pulled out his bullhorn, the protesters ran him out of town.

What could he have done that was so bad, that even a predominantly  black community ran him out of town?

How about asking the protesters for donations for his Church.

According to reports and witnesses on Twitter, that’s exactly what he did.

 

 

Perhaps Jackson should have thought a little bit more before being so callous during this sensitive time?

The Race War in America





Holder Race Relations SC

Racism:  poor treatment of or violence against people because of their race; the belief that some races of people are better than others.

Have you noticed we’ve stopped talking about ways to overcome racism?  We appear to have allowed the problem to overwhelm any consideration of solutions.   Most of our talk these days focuses on making accusations, on race-baiting, and on using race as a way to control or demonize or manipulate others.  Moron talk in the NFL consumes the air waves, not as a basis for exploring remedies, but merely for entertainment value.  Racism is no longer a social ill.  It’s a political weapon.

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. never pulled a punch speaking about injustice; but he didn’t leave it there, like so many do today.  No, instead, he moved the discussion forward, emphasizing two parallel subjects: non-violent activism and racial reconciliation.

Why did he do that?  Moved by the Spirit, he was an agent of true progress, a patriot and a man of God, interested in everyone’s betterment regardless of race.  He urged us to live up to our ideals and form a more perfect union, saying that character was far more important that skin pigment. That’s where our focus should remain.

Do we have that kind of leadership today?

In 2008, there was a glimmer of hope.  Even though I knew Barack Obama was a dyed-in-the-wool communist and radical community organizer hostile to America and Christianity, when he spoke about race back then, I was inspired.   He spoke about having the tough conversations.  He challenged black men to take responsibility.  He asked that we all engage in a new conversation about our prejudices and honestly work out our differences for the sake of future generations.  He sang the glories of our Constitution and our Founding principles.

Now we know it was all smoke and mirrors, just another head fake.  Now we understand that his only purpose was to salvage his campaign because his prospects had dimmed given revelations about Jeremiah “Goddamn America” Wright.  Now we realize that Obama sat under Wright’s authority for 20 years applauding teaching that encouraged fear, bigotry, division, and hatred.  Now we perceive that Wright and Obama are people willing to aggravate racial tensions to achieve political goals.

Today. we understand that Obama’s hostility toward whites, planted in him at an early age, was brought to full flower by the likes of Saul Alinsky and Jeremiah Wright; that Obama’s hostility and prejudicial thinking toward whites is as racist as any hostility directed toward blacks by white racists.  And never forget, Obama called his own grandmother a racist, calling her a ‘typical white person’ when she expressed fear of blacks. (Read Obama’s books.  He tells you flat out what he thinks about whites.)

His tragedy is this: he is so steeped in this rancorous thinking that it imprisons him.  Notice how he never takes responsibility and never acknowledges fault; yet he is quick to demonize all opposition.  He cannot change his mind or truly apologize because he believes he is thoroughly correct.  His distinct lack of humility is what makes him especially dangerous.  Worse, he displays a lack of conscience. People are just pawns.

As to his attitudes toward blacks . . .

In the wake of Obama’s 2008 speech on race, Jesse Jackson was caught making an astounding remark.  In an unguarded moment, not realizing a hot microphone was nearby, Jackson said that Obama “talks down to black people.”  Jackson was so angered by this, he said “I’d like to cut his nuts off.”  (Threatening this kind of violence is a crime.  You can be sure, had a white man threatened to cut Obama, he would have been arrested.)

Referencing the definition of racism at the beginning of this commentary, and in light of Jackson’s remarks, it is not a stretch to say that Obama considers himself superior to most black people; for only one harboring an attitude of superiority ‘talks down’ to others.   That attitude of superiority pegs Obama as one harboring racist attitudes toward blacks in America, people with whom he has no real affinity (raised as he was in Hawaii attending private school, provided all the advantages, and suffering few of the experiences personally that blacks have encountered for decades.)

But there is more.  Please notice that Obama’s comments about race these last five years have rarely if ever addressed the lofty goals and ideals he expressed in 2008, expressions akin to those of Dr. King. Rather, his remarks have tended to aggravate tensions.  From the Trayvon Martin tragedy to the incident involving the Cambridge Police Department, or in endorsing Eric Holder’s prejudicial enforcement policies involving the Black Panthers, Obama has jumped in with words and deeds that separate people, turning them against one another.

Waves of black-on-black violence have gone unattended by this administration.  The vast increase in black-on-white violence seen in the wake of the Trayvon Martin verdict has been all but ignored by this President and his people.  Obama has not said one word about the excesses of an Al Sharpton or a Louis Farrakhan.  He has done nothing to solve problems.  He has done many things to aggravate them.

And why?

There can only be one reasonable explanation, and it is found in the dark thoughts germinated in Obama’s mind by adults who used him and prepared him to fulfill their grand communist vision.  From Obama’s mother to his grandparents to his ‘mentor’ to his teachers and fellow students, to radical Jihadists introduced to him early on and communists like Saul Alinsky and Bill Ayers, Obama has been inculcated with the attitude that America is evil, and capitalism is only an enslavement tool of the oppressors.  Based on those presuppositions, the ‘fundamental transformation’ of America involves the destruction of America and capitalism to make way for a socialist state leading to a communist utopia.

Those have been and always will be the goals of the Obamas and all their cohorts.  They truly believe by sheer human will and intelligence that they will create a central government so benevolent and so steep in social justice that all will have the same income and the same outcomes, except the elites of course.  All the great dictators have shared these same beliefs.  Saul Alinsky merely translated them into application as coaching points for community organizers.

The strategy is: conquer from within.  The tactics: infiltrate to divide and conquer; any means are justified to achieve the end.

Obama is the greatest infiltrator of all time.  Remarkably, given his bigotry toward whites and indigenous blacks, he is perfectly situated to pit one group against another.  Divide and conquer.  Who better to foment a race war than a racist cutting both ways, especially if armed with 60 million voters and a vast war chest?

As Stalin said, you have to break a few eggs to make an omelet. In Stalin’s case, that meant starving 10 million Ukrainians and lining up tens of thousands more in front of firing squads.

In Obama’s case, it means taking his teachers’ advice seriously—any means to achieve the end—-even if it means starting a race war.   And despite the fact that blacks in America are far worse off economically thanks to Obamanomics, the vast majority of them continue to support him only because of the color of his skin, no matter how many times he ‘talks down’ to them, issues false promises, and encourages them to ignore Dr. King (to everyone’s injury.)
