Fly the friendly skies of racism…. circa forever

…but no flag is necessary.

Forget the Confederate Flag…Ban Democrats

By Peter Heck – June 29, 2015 | American Thinker

In any sane culture, the reaction to the recent massacre at the Charleston Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal church would have been a racially and ethnically unified demand to try, convict, and swiftly execute the monster who perpetrated the evil attack.

But we don’t live in a sane culture. So instead, we are chasing a 150-year-old battle flag from the 1860s, pretending that by abolishing it from public sight, we are striking some kind of historic blow for racial healing. What foolishness.

To make things worse, the liberal politicians and media elites promoting this meaningless distraction as some kind of substantive objective are doing so not because they are truly interested in providing a lasting peace to those who have suffered loss in this South Carolina bloodbath. No, they are despicably consumed with advancing their political agenda.

Less than a week after the slaughter, the national Democratic Party was shamelessly trying to raise funds over the Confederate battle flag issue. And faithfully fulfilling their role as mouthpieces of the Democrat left, the Washington Post followed up with an article titled “The GOP’s uneasy relationship with the Confederate flag.” Yes, that would be the Confederate flag designed by a Democrat for a country full of Democrats and warred against by Republicans. Good heavens. […/]

But only now that they can use minorities as slaves to vote for them in mass do they pretend to care about them. (as far as the ballot door)

After all, Dylann Roof was a probable socialist with anti-Christian sentiments. Well, if he were Christian or pro-Christian he’d have had a real hard time with planning this whole attack in/on a church. Gee, he could have had a DNC bumper sticker on his car. Now they have honed the skill of race-baiting as a diversion. They put down the fire hoses for the big-labor poll taxes, boycotts, and name calling. So ban the racists not a symbol.

Universal symbol of racism

NBC takes a licking and keeps on clicking

What’s the bigger story: what happened in Charleston, SC or what is going on in NBC?

There can be no question which is more important, the shooting. However, what NBC is doing is a pretty big story. Meet the Press turned into Meet the Bias, even for liberals.

First, we have the reintroduction of Brian Williams into the MSNBC cable brand this week. But what Chuck Todd is doing doesn’t go under the radar either. We all know NBC is one of the media sycophants at Obama’s beckon call. So when Obama has an agenda to push — most of the time — they are atop his advocacy list to push his message… aka policy.

In the days after the shooting, Obama made very clear his desire to re-litigate the gun issue. Even though he said Congress was not willing, he repeatedly said he would not let it go. But we knew that. So when Obama said that the gun control issue needs help to becoming more urgently relevant, enter NBC. We can do that says Todd, no problem.

After his statement he traveled to Santa Monica, Ca to reiterate his passion for gun control saying “I need you to mobilize and organize a constituency.”

So Meet the Press unwinds a prepackaged special on guns from a prison inmate’s perspective. They all happened to be black. But plug it in because of the subject matter on guns. It should fill the void and be political fodder, right? It was a backfire as critics, mostly libs, attacked them for having interviewed only black inmates. Well, strike two. Race over gun control? They thought that throwing a generic disclosure on it to ‘pay no attention to the race factor’ at the beginning would suffice. It didn’t. Right, people looked right at the obvious color of the inmates and made it the issue, rather than guns. That’s what race-hustlers usually do too. Key in on race. So their disclosure didn’t work.

Also amusing is that MSNBC is the network of “prison TV,” as I call it, on weekends. Yet they wonder why their programing doesn’t attract enough viewers? So it was not much of a stretch for Prison TV LLC, to interview inmates on any subject.

Immediately after airing, Chuck had to go on defense of the piece saying “But the last thing we wanted was to cloud the discussion of the topic.” That much is true. They didn’t want to cloud the issue of gun control. They wanted to be straight-up, full-fledged advocates. (lobbyists if you will) And that would make Obama happy. Todd said, “I hope folks view the gun video as a part of the conversation we should all be having and not the totality of it.” Chuck explained it was “too important to put off for another week.”

Todd had said of the interviews:

“The circumstances you are about to see are very different from the racist violence in Charleston. In this case, in the [video] inmates are African-American that you’re going to hear from. But their lessons remain important.”

“And we simply ask you to look at this as a color-blind issue that’s about just simply gun violence.”

What rolled out was mass outrage at the racial bias of the piece — specifically at Chuck Todd — which superseded the gun control issue.

The result was that Tod and NBC ignited a brushfire. But they brought in the accelerant, matches, and the fuel. Plus for days they were dragging the Confederate flag into it on MSNBC. Maybe not the fire they were expecting with the blow-back.

So then it isn’t hard to believe that they also were not content with the unfolding story line in the shooting aftermath enough to try to stir up the public in Charleston. Not that the people didn’t already experience enough, NBC descended like a pack of wolves when they saw the situation was far too peaceful than it should be. No, the people need to be impassioned and fired up if it is to provoke any dialogue or political action. Obama himself said as much. (You don’t think NBC acts all by itself)

Obama in his early statement declared we have the “power to do something about it… but it’d be wrong for us not to acknowledge it.”

Considering the shooter’s racial motives indeed makes some strange bedfellows, MSNBC seems to subscribe to the same notion. They didn’t understand how people weren’t fired up for action, and marching over the shootings. So the slime-sucking carnival barkers of MSNBC couldn’t stand it. They want a story to cover. Something they can sink their teeth into and extort for all its political worth. One that plays into Obama’s agenda, beyond just the gun control one. So far they’re coming up empty. The Fuhrer will not be happy.

On Thursday, Obama wasted no time commenting on the Charleston shootings and his gun control agenda, admitting that once again he “doesn’t have all the facts”. But don’t let that stop him, it never has before.

“We don’t have all the facts, but we do know that, once again, innocent people were killed in part because someone who wanted to inflict harm had no trouble getting their hands on a gun,”

In California, Obama unleashed more specific and fiery rhetoric. At a fundraiser in Santa Monica, he told them “I need you to mobilize:

“If you’re dissatisfied that every few months we have a mass shooting in this country, killing innocent people, then I need you to mobilize and organize a constituency that says this is not normal and we are going to change it, and put pressure to elect people who insist on that change,” Obama said.

“We need a change in attitude. We have to move public opinion,” Obama said. “Ultimately Congress will follow the people,” he declared. Obama boldly stated:

“I refuse to act as if this is the new normal or to pretend that it’s simply sufficient to grieve and that any mention of us doing something to stop it is somehow politicizing the problem.

“We have to shift how we think about this issue and we have the capacity to change, but we have to build a sense of urgency about it.”

He added on his other favorite topic: “We don’t have to look far to see that racism and bigotry, hate and intolerance, are still all too alive in our world.” Obama pushes his dual-track agenda on lecturing, “We have to feel a sense of urgency.”

Obama finds his voice on Christians

I must first give my due sympathies and prayers to the evil shootings in Charleston, SC . Then Obama comes out to make his statement on it after the AG had opined on it. Loretta Lynch said that the Civil Rights team was already on the ground in Charleston. It’s horrible evil that should not have happened.

Anyway, Obama for months has been faced with evil. All the atrocities committed by ISIS and terrorists. Christians being persecuted, a genocide unfolding in the Middle East, and an ancient Caliphate resurfacing. In all these current happenings on his watch he could not even deliver lip-service toward Christian victims — even after being reminded.

He’ll describe any other aspects about them but, even when Christians were marched out to a choreographed beheading, he referred to Christianity as benignly as he could. Charles Krauthammer wrote of Obama during these evil persecutions, “Obama’s reaction to, shall we say, turmoil abroad has been one of alarming lassitude and passivity.”

The Islamists of the Caliphate released their beheading video under the title: “A Message Signed with Blood to the Nations of the Cross”. Obama, in a carefully crafted statement, referred to victims this way:

The United States condemns the despicable and cowardly murder of twenty-one Egyptian citizens in Libya by ISIL-affiliated terrorists. – More

Now anyone would have to be brain dead to intentionally not mention their Christian Faith, particularly as they testified with their final words. However, not to disappoint his astonishing record in hypocrisy and double standards, Obama finds his voice for Christian victimhood — sort of — in the evil execution of 9 Christians in Charleston this week. Washington Post has the video and transcript here.

Michelle and I know several members of Emanuel AME Church. We knew their pastor, Reverend Clementa Pinckney, who, along with eight others, gathered in prayer and fellow ship and was murdered last night, and to say our thoughts and prayers are with them and their families and their community doesn’t say enough to convey the heartache and the sadness and the anger that we feel.

Any death of this sort is a tragedy. Any shooting involving multiple victims is a tragedy. There is something particularly heartbreaking about a death happening in a place in which we seek solace and we seek peace, in a place of worship.

Mother Emanuel is, in fact, more than a church. This is a place of worship that was founded by African Americans seeking liberty. This is a church that was burned to the ground because its worshipers worked to end slavery.

When there were laws banning all-black church gatherings, they conducted church services in secret. When there was a nonviolent movement to bring our country in closer line with our highest ideals, some of our brightest leaders spoke and led marches from this church’s steps.

This is a sacred place in the history of Charleston and in the history of America.

The FBI is now on the scene with local police, and more of the bureau’s best are on their way to join them. The attorney general has announced plans for the FBI to open a hate crime investigation. We understand that the suspect is in custody, and I’ll let the best of law enforcement do its work to make sure that justice is served.

Until the investigation is complete, I’m necessarily constrained in terms of talking about the details of the case. But I don’t need constrained about the emotions that tragedies like this raise.

He makes sure to give due reference to the history and their faith. But look at the backdrop, or foreground as it were.

He referred the Church as a sacred place, particularly due to the church’s history in anti-slavery and its black heritage. That was the perspective he emphasized. That it happened to be a Christian one was secondary. Still he did find his voice for slain Christians.

He found that note, be it via black cultural heritage.

When you contrast that with Coptic Christians in the Middle East, whose heritage goes back over a thousand years, he could not even give lip service to their plight of persecution. It proved that once again, the only concern of Obama is politics, and next to that the cultural bent he chooses to see. He’ll mention Muslim hatred. Then he goes to a prayer breakfast to remind Christians of crusades and “terrible deeds”

So now he finds a way to address Christian murders. Now he is sympathetic to Christians?

Then he goes on to indulge himself in his ‘trigger warning’ message:

I’ve had to make statements like this too many times. Communities like this have had to endure tragedies like this too many times.

We don’t have all the facts, but we do know that once again, innocent people were killed in part because someone who wanted to inflict harm had no trouble getting their hand on a gun.

Now is the time for mourning and for healing. But let’s be clear. At some point, we as a country will have to reckon with the fact that this type of mass violence does not happen in other advanced countries. It doesn’t happen in other places with this kind of frequency.

And it is in our power to do something about it.

So there we have it. He has again reduced a national evil event to a political debate on gun control. He even had to besmirch his recognition of Christian executions to an ideological tourniquet, when the hemorrhaging is coming from the Oval Office Ideologue in Chief. He is only interested in the black historical aspect of the event, and how it can be used to serve his ideological ends. Sure he gave due mention to their Christian faith, to black history, to anti-slavery, and then has wed it to his ideological battle.

The words “We shall overcome” have been co-opted by Obama’s political war.

Yet the real message in this evil is that, if you believe the reports of his motives, the shooter acting in racist hatred had wanted to ignite a race war. And now with the arraignment process, where victims families displayed the greatest character I’ve seen, Obama is the one igniting a war.

He and the Al Sharptons push a perpetual battle in their rhetoric. But I have not seen a hint of that by people in Charleston, or among victims. As if it were not even a possibility. That is American exceptionalism at its finest. Meanwhile, Obama digs into his bag of race-baiting right from the start.

Even as bad as playing the race card is the rush to a gun control.Unbelievably, it plays right into what the shooter had designed. Whether a war over race or war on guns, the incident was meant to inflame larger society. The only ones fanning those flames are the political ideologues and demagogues. Let us rise above race-baiting.

Race-baiting White Elitists to the Rescue?

…or just more pandering? You decide.

Jay Rockefeller plays the race card. Blame racist white people, voters.

Jay Rockefeller“It’s an American characteristic that you don’t do anything which displeases the voters, because you always have to get reelected here,” he added. “I understand part of it. It has to do with — for some, it’s just we don’t want anything good to happen under this president, because he’s the wrong color.”

The five-term senator said ideological barriers and lawmakers’ own narrow self-interests were preventing them making tough political decisions.

“For some it’s the tea party. For some it’s just a fear of their own reelection prospects,” said Rockefeller.

He acknowledged his own relative freedom to speak his mind now, saying he has “the ease of the fact that I’m not running again.” – Politico

Mind you he is doing it on the way out the Senate door as he retires. So what’s that tell us? He’s being called courageous. But look at his statement. He said you don’t do something that disagrees with voters. (read pander) But now he can say it leaving.

Blame those nasty voters.

So he’s telling us he can be honest leaving the way he couldn’t as Senator? Yes, that is the message. Believe him now because he couldn’t tell the truth before because of reelection. But take it seriously, as the left stream media does.

Funny he does not mention the race-baiters in Congress playing politics and the race card to get and stay elected.

Another statement comes from that dysfunctional Charlie Crist of Florida. He makes no bones about playing the race card. But he’s allowed to because he’s now a Democrat.
In an interview with Fusion:

Crist: Race Motivates GOP Opposition to Obama

Former Florida Gov. Charlie Crist (D) said Tuesday that a “big reason” why he left the Republican Party was because many in the GOP were hostile to President Obama due to his race.

Crist, who is running for his old office against Gov. Rick Scott (R), said in an interview with Fusion’s Jorge Ramos that he felt uncomfortable with his previous party affiliation. Republicans are perceived as “anti-women, anti-immigrant, anti-minority, [and] anti-gay,” he said, and they refuse to compromise with Obama. The ex-governor said he feels, “liberated as a Democrat.”

“I couldn’t be consistent with myself and my core beliefs, and stay with a party that was so unfriendly toward the African-American president, I’ll just go there,” he said. “I was a Republican and I saw the activists and what they were doing, it was intolerable to me.”

Crist left the GOP to run as an independent during his failed 2010 Senate bid, when he lost in a GOP primary to Marco Rubio. He officially joined the Democratic Party soon after the 2012 elections, and before that, he supported Obama’s reelection bid.

“I am liberated as a Democrat, my true soul is able to be seen, and I couldn’t be happier about it,” Crist said.

He holds a double-digit lead in at least one poll over Scott, who suffers from poor approval ratings.

Ramos challenged Crist on his motivation for leaving the party, questioning whether his loss to Rubio played a bigger role. Crist responded it was because Republicans had become too radical.

“No, I left the Republican Party because the leadership went off the cliff,” Crist said.

Republicans pushed back against Crist’s claims of racially motivated hostility toward Obama.

“Being a flip-flopper is bad enough, but playing the race card to win over voters is pitiful,” Izzy Santa, a Republican National Committee spokeswoman, wrote in an email to Fusion. […/] – Fusion

The real question in both of these is does playing the race card work for a white elitist politician? They both seem to think it does.

On one hand is Rockefeller leaving and the other Crist is running for election. Both liberal Democrats. The motivations of each seems clear. Good to see Crist is now liberated.
But there is an admission: both are saying they haven’t been honest. Crist wants the job back so he can be honest, the way he wasn’t before.
