Barack Obama finally took time to address the arson, looting, and violent assault on law enforcement officers in the city of Baltimore, less than 50 miles from the comfy confines of the White House and all the privileges that come to those lucky enough to call 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue home.
The One took the opportunity to make political hay from the tragic events by blaming society for ignoring poverty, and by demanding a campaign of ‘soul-searching’ for the police, the looters, and all of the rest of America, except, that is, his administration and the flawed Democrat politicians in charge of the afflicted city.
Obama’s dance around the facts included his curious silence concerning the statement by Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, a Democrat, about “Leaving space to destroy,” a perfect synopsis of the liberal mindset on violence, riots, and looters.
Above all else, the Mayor was reminding PC-addled residents, that she was watching out for the best interests of the looters, rioters, arsonists and other destroyers, while every one else was fretting, unnecessarily, about the safety and lives of the police.
Clearly, in the mind of Mayor Blake, the police needed no advocacy since they were armed to the teeth and, after all, it was they who killed Freddie Gray, said murder providing provocation for the justifiable mob violence, which needed space.
Barack Obama picked up on the Mayor’s odd thesis with these words: We can’t just leave this to the police,” Obama said. “There are police departments that have to do some soul-searching. I think there are some communities that have to do some soul-searching. But I think we as a country have to do some soul-searching. This is not new. It’s been going on for decades.”
“Obama said that the country had left behind impoverished communities that had been “stripped of opportunity”, in which children born into poverty are given little chance to obtain an education or to make a living outside the drug trade”
Once again, the ugly head of progressive lunacy emerges as Obama blamed lack of opportunity, poverty, and societal indifference for the fact that Baltimore has been torched and police officers seriously injured!
If only white society would join us in spending another 13-14 trillion dollars, he was suggesting, we could transform Baltimore into a bountiful metropolis, worthy of emulation throughout America and the world.
A question lingers: If it is true that the lack of education and jobs are the cause of black distress in Baltimore and throughout America, why in the hell is Obama issuing unlawful Executive Orders to bring tens of millions of foreign illegal aliens into the nation?
Illegal aliens who are not citizens, do not speak English, are unskilled, and who will compete directly with black CITIZENS for employment and prosperity opportunities?
Perhaps Obama himself should do some soul searching to determine why stuffing Democrat Party voter rolls with foreign invaders through unconstitutional Executive Orders is more important than the well being and success of black CITIZENS?
