What we’ve got here…
No matter how many times leftist leaders like Bill De Blasio, Al Sharpton and Team Obama raise the obligatory call for peaceful protests, the violence persists, recently culminating in the assassination of two police officers in New York City. Officers Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos were the direct victims of a vengeful miscreant who posted “I’m Putting Wings On Pigs Today. They Take 1 Of Ours, Let’s Take 2 of Theirs,” on Instagram. They were indirect victims, collateral damage if you will, in the progressive movement that despises a racist America and while I would never expect complete adherence to authority on the part of such a man, what I do see are politicians making token gestures of peace, which are totally disregarded by their like-minded sycophants, while regularly acting in a contradictory manner that fuels such violent actions.
Protesters chanting “What do we want? DEAD COPS!.” Progressive “leaders” simultaneously calling for peace AND undermining these calls with divisive rhetoric. Violent actors shooting, looting and burning. All have hitched their wagons to the flagship cases of Michael Brown and Eric Garner, which are exhibits A & B in the case against a racist police force, society and nation. Except they’re not evidence of any such culture. Michael Brown was killed while physically attacking a police officer after breaking the law (by robbing a store) and resisting arrest. He didn’t have his hands up. Eric Garner was killed while struggling with police after breaking the law and resisting arrest. He wasn’t killed by a chokehold. Each case was investigated by a grand jury, each officer found to have acted within the law. And yet, when violence erupts, despite the calls for peace that are inevitably followed by admissions of our racist nation, whether it be the murder of police officers or the burning and looting of shops and homes, such violence continues the progressive narrative of the racist police, system, etc. If not for the actions of the police, no violence would occur, so goes the narrative.
And then there’s our leaders calling for peace. Pleas for peaceful protests mask the condescension held in their hearts for our biased, racist, prejudicial system. Before the grand juries had rendered any verdicts, Eric Holder was in Ferguson to investigate and Al Sharpton had set up camp while the officer in question had been found guilty in the court of public opinion. New York City Mayor Bill De Blasio has found himself shunned by the NYPD due to comments calling for the “retraining” of his police force to better deal with race relations. (Because they are presently too racist) Also, he acknowledges advising his biracial son to “be careful” when dealing with the police. (The only conclusion is that this is because the police working in his city have racist views of young black men, despite the diversity of the police force) As for Al Sharpton, here’s a link to his highlights. Now consider his close relationship advising both Mayor De Blasio as well as the sitting President of the United States.
Calls for peace are the obligation of politicians and public leaders. However, while peace is preferable, even to these leaders, it is violence that stirs emotion and invigorates the movement. They must speak peace but do so in a way that undermines that same speech. And when all subsequent violence can be blamed on the initial event, either Brown or Garner, so much the better. Notice how, as with Occupy Wall Street, all violent undesirables supposedly do not reflect the genuine feelings of the real movement. Such violent actors are cut loose and the fact that their actions were motivated by a false narrative, peddled by the same double-speaking leaders is swept aside as irrelevant.
These facts must remain to further the cause: cops kill black men and we live in a racist society. Any evidence to the contrary cannot be allowed to pervade the social conscious. Police acting in self defense does not matter to those with a progressive agenda for social justice. Black on black violence is not an epidemic that should be addressed by black leaders but further proof of prejudice and white privilege. Basically, these leaders, the protesters and the violent actors are not interested in the truth or the betterment society. They are interested in the same type of vengeance that tragically found Officers Liu and Ramos. Sadly, they will not be the last victims of the progressive cause.
“If I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon,” – President Obama
– Does this mean he would be black? In a hoodie? Suspended from school? And how does this NOT create division especially coming BEFORE any trial.
“These outbursts of bigotry, while deplorable, are not the true markers of the struggle that still must be waged, or the work that still needs to be done — because the greatest threats do not announce themselves in screaming headlines. They are more subtle. They cut deeper. And their terrible impact endures long after the headlines have faded and obvious, ignorant expressions of hatred have been marginalized.” – Eric Holder
– The other thing about supposed subtle forms of racism is that race hustlers can claim racism is at work when the fact is that people disagree with, for example, a president, because of his policies, not the color of his skin. Any disagreement can be met with accusations of racism to effectively end any substantial discussion.
“This is true all over the country. We have to re-train police forces in how to work with communities differently. We have to work on things like body cameras that would provide different levels of transparency and accountability. This is something systemic. And we bluntly have to talk about the historic racial dynamics underlie this.”- Mayor Bill De Blasio
– Re-training is only necessary if the police are not adequately trained already which leads to: why were they not trained adequately enough resulting in such “racist” police officers? It comes as no surprise that this mayor quickly lost the support of his own police force.
“For the first time in my adult life I am proud of my country because it feels like hope is finally making a comeback.” – Michelle Obama
– Her claims of prejudice by a Target customer are also ridiculous and may actually have been fabricated

“The Republican base does have elements that are animated by racism.” -Steve Israel, Chair of the DCCC
– No specific people mentioned, just a hollow claim of blanket racism
