Rev Al and the lefts’ P/C police

It has been simmering on the back burner since the Trayvon verdict They wanted a commentary on victimhood of blacks, with Sharpton and Jackson taking the stage as well as any other race hustlers. But as anyone made the wider case in the black community, and the Chicago connection, they turned the anti-Zimmerman wrath on them.

They skewed any white people for talking about the black community. Almost in unison they said white people have no right to tell us who our black leaders should be. As the Chicago case got any attention, they got viscous. Why is that? They didn’t actually want to talk about the black community.

Is it the terrible statistics? Is it the talk about the black family and communities, and unemployment, and violence stats, or the black on black crimes, or the unreported incidents and numbers of murders — known only as statistics? Pundit after pundit was asked, and they could not name one of those victims.

Not really; its about color and race. It is just that white people cannot say anything related to the black community. They must shut up, they have no business even talking about the black community. That is the message and what is driving it.

There is one other thing: all that talk about statistics, the black community, and Chicago murders diverts from their theme to keep it about Trayvon and the chosen black issues — and “defend your ground” law — all the time. In other words, that is where they want ALL the attention focused. Too bad, you lose Chicago.

After all, they were on a roll with protests and vindicated by Obama talking about Trayvon from the White House press room. What Chicago victim would not love to have that voice?

How dare whites talk about the black community or anything related to race. That cannot be. Who in the hell are they? But blacks talk about whites and communities with impunity. Who would reject their comments about that? And they would say they have every right to talk about it as much as anyone. Who would argue? No one.

But now here we have a divisive issue raised and the white people have to just shut up. Its their show. That is the message of the race police(hustlers) like Sharpton and Jackson, et al. Or our illustrious president of all things race, or attorney general. Who are you to inject white comments? But hypocrisy is always a problem for the left, and this debate is driven by the left and its activists.

Oops how did this happen?

So what happens when Rev. Michael Pfleger talks about race and organizes black rallies and protests? Remember he’s a white priest in Chicago. So what business does he have speaking on behalf of blacks? Who does he think he is? How can he be a leader in the black community? Oh, they don’t ask those questions. Of course no one said to him, “Reverend, you have no business speaking for blacks on these issues.” That would be news.

This is an oldy but goody. Its illustrative of Al Sharpton and his “leadership”.
(Just forward to 5 minutes)

Literal example. Hey, wouldn’t you like to see Sharpton sit down and shut up for a change, and let someone else speak?

And Pelosi, SHE IS A WHITE B**CH, ISN”T SHE? Well she scheduled hearing last week for today:
Washington Examiner:

House Democrats will hold a hearing next week to weigh in on the controversy swirling around the recent verdict in the George Zimmerman trial.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., announced “A Conversation on Race and Justice” on July 30 on Capitol Hill.
According to a Pelosi aide, the hearing will not focus solely on the trial, which acquitted Zimmerman of murder charges in the shooting death of Florida teenager Trayvon Martin, but will be a “broader conversation.”
Pelosi will preside over the hearing, which will include Democrats from the party’s Steering and Policy Committee.
The scheduled panelists are Southern Poverty Law Center founder Morris Dees, Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson and civil rights lawyer Maya Wiley, president of the Center for Social Inclusion.

So now if you are chosen white or a Democrat pol, you can talk about race or speak on black communities — and don’t make waves or interrupt black leaders. I think I got it.
