Another day, another conflict. Who could have guessed that life under Barack Obama would be so much fun?
The facts are pretty straightforward. On Thursday, the president issued an executive order that all flags on public buildings and grounds, military posts, naval stations, and naval vessels be lowered to half-staff through sunset Monday to honor the memory of Nelson Mandela. On Friday, Pickens County, S.C., Sheriff Rick Clark said no.
About the only positive takeaway from the two latest iterations of the ‘Knockout game’ infesting our cities is that there were no fatalities. Possibly the worst takeaway is the reaction of New York Police Commissioner Ray Kelly to an incident last Friday in Brooklyn’s Borough Community, which is predominantly Orthodox-Jewish. Kelly told the New York Times:
We’re trying to determine whether or not this is a real phenomenon. I mean, yes, something like this can happen. But we would like to have people come forward and give us any information they have.
We are rapidly reaching a point where instead of calling out acts of racism, it would be simpler for the PC police to inform the rest of us which actions are not racist. From the UCLA Daily Bruin comes word of a sit-in (shades of the ‘70s!) over what some students characterize as a “toxic” racial climate in the Graduate School of Education & Information Studies.
“If I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon Martin.” That’s entirely possible, Mr. President, but would he play “Knockout”?
Calling it “play” misses the point of a rash of vicious urban street crimes whose purpose is to cause injury — even death. The simplistic name, “Knockout,” hints at the rules: A group of black teens cruises the streets, looking for lone potential victims. Group members then take turns trying to fell the target with a single blow to the head. Extra style points are awarded if the “target” is rendered unconscious.
The internet needs one of those signs that used to appear outside factories that read, “This plant has gone [blank] days without an accident.” In the case of the web, the sign would read, “The internets have gone [blank] days without a black and/or leftist commentator accusing white conservatives of racial animus toward Barack Obama.”
Ah, the four R’s of education: Reading, writing, ‘rithmetic, and resentment over white privilege.
If the last of these is unfamiliar, then you are unfamiliar with the wondrous new Common Core curriculum being peddled to schools, which are funneling insidious propaganda into the minds of impressionable middle schoolers.
Kyle Olson of EAGnews, an education reform non-profit headquartered in Michigan, recently produced a video (below) exposing the teaching materials that Common Core advocates using to realize its “national standards” in math and English.
Barack Obama was elected the 44th President of the United States on a promise of hope and change. Hope for a better America, hope for a more prosperous America, and hope for a more united America. Along with his historic election came an even more historic opportunity. The ability to help heal race relations once and for all in this country.
But that opportunity was never taken advantage of. Instead of trying to unite Americans of every color, every creed, and of every socio-economic status, this President has chosen instead to use identity politics and class warfare to systematically and intentionally divide this nation.
For an administration that seems so dead set against racism, they have funny ways of showing it. They have an employee in the DHS, who advocates shooting a large number of whites and who engages in anti-gay diatribes. The scary part is that this employees buys guns and ammunition for the DHS. If he were white and advocated killing blacks, would he still have a job?
