To hear Barack Obama, Eric Holder, Al Sharpton and the Congressional Black Caucus pontificate about the Ferguson tragedy, one could easily conclude that the entire episode was the fault of racist police in Ferguson, in particular Officer Darren Wilson.
Wilson, according to black extremists (Obama, Holder, and all the rest) executed Brown based on the fact that he (Brown) was as black as night, weighed over 300 pounds, and was otherwise dispensable.
This hateful “blame the Cop” narrative conveniently omitted the fact that the Gentle Giant had just robbed a store, had bullied and slapped around the business proprietor, and had fled the scene of the crime, all of which was caught on video.
Pointing out those facts is nothing but character assassination of a lovable Gentle Giant according to black extremists, perpetuated, they claim, for the sole purpose of diverting public attention from the wanton slaughter of an innocent, unarmed teenager by white police out for thrills by causing black blood to spill on the streets of Ferguson.
No where in the Obama-led crucifixion of Darren Wilson and white law enforcement agents in general is it mentioned that Brown would not have been involved with police were it not for his criminal act in a convenience store.
No where does Obama call for black leaders to accept responsibility for Brown’s criminal behavior as a key component in his tragic death.
Obama has chosen instead to blame white police authorities
for Brown’s demise. In doing so, Obama has undermined law enforcement throughout America and, more importantly, has betrayed black citizens by refusing to point out that blaming others is never going to atone for the death of the Gentle Giant, nor will it help prevent further tragedies.
Once again, Barack Obama has proven that he lacks the intelligence, common sense, and compassion needed to lead Americans in times of intense need.
Shame on you, Barack Obama!
