The Hill (via Laura Ingraham.com) ^ | 8/26/2013 | Staff

Posted on 08/26/2013 7:33:54 AM PDT by Laissez-faire capitalist

When President Obama follows in Dr. Martin Luther King's footsteps on Wednesday with an address at the Lincoln Memorial, he will face a nation where race remains the great divide.

Black lawmakers say the election of the nation's first African American president has not been a salve for racial tensions..

Is this racial tension because of "white folks greed" (check to see if these words are in one of Obama's books), or because of typical white people (did Obama say something to that effect)? Hmmm....

Is Obama causing racial tensions?

“Is Obama causing racial tensions? “


Can only speak for myself but he has not only fanned the dying embers of racism but poured Napalm on them.

While I detest just about every policy of his and his utter ignorance and contempt for the Constitution and American, I honestly thought his election would have poured some much needed water on those hard to extinguish embers.

No, exactly the opposite and as a perfect example his racist head of the DOJ who has made it quite clear we are under “get even with them” minority rule and the white, Christian, American Male is the target rich environment for his minions.

I apologize to Conservative blacks for this but, the gloves are off and Obama has made it quite clear we have to choose sides and I’ll gladly side with the majority which built this once great country and fight to my death against those who will make the entire country look like Detroit.

I don’t believe what they call racism today is what one normally understands as racism.

The segment of society represented by the blacks have changed from the past. I have worked with, played with and enjoyed being with, a number of blacks in my lifetime. They were good, honest, hard working, family oriented people - and still are.

But as a community they have changed as evidenced by the latest published data that 72% of black births are to unwed mothers, that the prisons are heavily disproportionately filled with blacks, not because of racism but because they disproportionately commit crimes, and on and on.

It is the black community that needs to make a change.

First he isn't a African American.
He's half white , the other half is Kenyan and Arab. His family roots do not include slavery in this country, they probably include enslaving and selling the salves which came to America.

He hasn't done anything to help African Americans , more welfare and free phones are NOT HELP . They are a ticket to staying on the plantation in slavery to this system.

Blacks = only 13% of the population

But blacks commit the majority of the general crime, the car-jackings, the murders and violence against blacks.

And blacks are responsible for about 95% of the constant nonstop, whining we are subjected to 24/7/365.

As a gtroup, about 90% of them are lazy dumbasses and a drag on America. Yet they feel superior to the other 10% of blacks and look down on them as "acting white".

Not one of the 90% have any idea at all of how fed up with their whining and mooching the rest of us have become.

Obama is as racist as LBJ.

Good observation.

Remember LBJ's remark about the Great Society. "I'll have those n***ers voting Democrat for the next 200 years." LBJ was a clever politician.

The Obama/Holder rhetoric is like a booster shot.

1.) If blacks are so unhappy with America, why are they still here?

2.) If whites actually hated blacks, don't you suppose we'd have silenced blacks' complaints a long time ago—or worse?

3.) If very many whites actually hated blacks to any measurable degree, don't you suppose the Ku Klux Klan would be a growing national organization rather than a handful of grumpy old guys, half of whom are really F, B, and I agents?

4.) How fair would it be to hold non-Marxist and anti-Marxist whites accountable for Marxists' having enticed millions of blacks into the Democratic [sic] party's plantation with "free" this, that, and everything else?

Blacks have their issues with us and we with them. They confront us on their issues fair or not. We therefore have the same right to confront them on our issues. It is time for a society wide intervention. Young black males who are 3% of the population commit 50% of the murders. It is time to figure out how we confront and intervene in a productive and fair manner.

Blaming it all on slavery and what happened 100 years ago is just a copout. The difference is what happened over the past two thousand years. It is called social,cultural and spiritual evolution. The same which produces a successful society and culture and results in technological and economic progress generally. Blaming it on someone else is just an attempt to achieve the products of social and cultural evolution with out doing the work and going through the process

Obama has incited black anger to advance redistribution schemes. He uses the threat of black violence to scare whites into submission.

Obama and the black political class are shameless demagogues who use racial animosities for fun and profit.

Anyone spending more than a passing glance on his pre election history would have seen a man committed to furthering black superiority and white guilt.

It’s all there in his history that we CAN see, so imagine what he spent millions to date hiding. Imagine what the plumbers of the DNC disappeared.

It it’s even possible, the only black man that could ease racial tensions is one that will confront modern black society and tell them to their faces, early and often, they they are their problem. Show me one willing to do that without backing down though. Even the former FL congressman who we had such hopes for backed Pigford and don’t get me started with him over Tray Tray.

All of the institutions that used to serve the black community have been eroded over time and replaced by government programs. Those government programs promise a path out of poverty, but the reality is those programs perpetuate a cycle of poverty, condition people to not work, build a culture of dependency. The same thing was done with native americans. The difference is the motivation behind the system. The current welfare culture has been constructed to build a majority voting block that derives its subsistence straight from the government. Between the Bush tax cuts , EIC credit and expanded giveaways under Obama, the democrats are succeeding.

While some people think they are immune to this, a downside to human nature is the willingness to accept a free lunch.

FRiends, the race war has begun.

It did not start with riots in the streets and ash in the skies, as we thought it would.

It started with the word being quietly put out by the Left, and now whites are being hunted on the streets by feral blacks.

But the Leftists don’t want you to know it yet. They don’t want you to know that you’re part of an obvious, in-your-face race war. They want whites to feel an undertow of dread, to feel powerless and helpless against the black horde that is lurking, waiting inside the urban kraals.

The ever-mounting tide of hate from the Left is frightening people. Fear causes paralysis. And that leads to inaction, whether by not acting against it, or refusing to accept the truth.

The race war has begun, and the feral blacks are the shock troops.

Nor can his supporters, apparently.

They deny his own statements that he "wants a future in politics" - his very words.

He wants his taxpayer-funded pension, his taxpayer-funded health care for life, and his taxpayer-funded dacha by the lake, like his counterparts in old Soviet Russia.

In the language of his homies, "Gibsmedat".

I am rarely disappointed in politics anymore. But he was a disappointment. So much good, so much potential. And he pissed away any trust with his black solidarity bullxhit.

I now have a hard time trusting anything he says. If he couldn’t see past Trayvon, nothing is beyond him.

The ongoing race war is simply a front for an all out assault by the Federal government on white Christian straight males.

Democrats, completely assimilated by communists, will partner with any minority race, cult, sexual orientation, religious group even hate cults like muslims if the ends are achieved by those partnerships.

The goal is the final implementation of the Communist Manifesto and they are 98% complete in the fundamental transformation of the USA.

The race war has begun, and the feral blacks are the shock troops.

Sadly, I believe you are correct. What we are seeing is not the random violence of a few misfits. It is the rage of a hate group created and groomed just for this purpose, and now busting loose of its weak restraints.

The American left is determined to succeed in the utter domination of the national population by a socialist/communist state. A feat that eventually escaped real professionals like Stalin, Hitler, Kruschev, Mao, andd Pol Pot even though they tried hard, killing far more than 100,000,000 in the process.

But then those failed despots foolishly tried to dominate through fear of the state while our leftists have decided to take another route - turning citizen against citizen by fomenting intense hate and eventually using blacks and other minorities as state sponsored hate groups to do the dirty work.

Our leftists have now taken most of the reins of power and have placed the leaders of their hate group at the pinnacle of government power. They are using our own tax dollars to build their genocidal army of blacks and other democrat party defined victim groups, arm it and turn it loose on those of us they see as their enemies.

Now they have succeeded in planting the seeds of hate in a large enough group of minorities, whom they have fed, nurtured, brainwashed and prepared for the day.

They are gloating over their success and showing signs they believe they have arrived at the right time and place to turn their murdering stooges loose to consolodate their power and begin their Reich.

True enough, IM. The deal is, we are no longer up against those names like Stalin, Kruschev, or Pol Pot. Our foes have names like Cloward, Piven and Alinsky.

Rather than the heavy boot of tyranny and terror, they are using the slower, but more effective method, of increasing the dread and despair of the population until they willingly submit to the boot.

The armed services teach us to fairly and realistically assess our enemy, and that assessment is thus: you are up against a political ideology, foreign to these shores, that now has the resources of a nation-state at its disposal.

The solid majority of your fellow citizens WANT that ideology in power, for any of a dozen selfish reasons. You will receive no quarter, aid or comfort from them; there will be no redress for you in the courts; letters, emails and phone calls to your government fall upon deaf or hostile ears.

Far too many people in this nation actually WANT this post-Constitution America. For those who do not, many still cling to the notion that the system is not dysfunctional, that the rule of law has not been violated, and that somehow good will triumph.

This is called, by many in the liberty movement, “Normalcy Bias”. The naive, almost Pollyanna mindset that all will be restored to chocolate rivers and children playing with gumdrop smiles, if we can just hold out until the next election cycle.

FRiends, fellow patriots, it is past time for us to admit the sad and sorrowful truth: America, as she was founded and as we inherited her, is broken. A foreign power who boasts names like Cloward, Piven, Alinsky and Marx, have us outgunned in every category that can be measured, save one: we desire the Rule Of Law restored.

All that is required of us is, what steps shall we take towards restoration?

And when will that first step be trod?

And who shall it be?

I agree with every word you said. I thought he would be another Jackie Robinson. In fact, he brings nothing. He teaches me nothing. What about him is there for a young person to emulate? NOthing but the scam the con. He’s a con man.

Maybe we might see someone who will truly bring us together. Ben CArson, MD? There’s someone who you can admire? Col. West? Condi Rice?

Obama is nothing more and nothing less than that street hustler you went to school with. Once you realize that his administration is all about the muslim brotherhood, then it all makes sense.
