Random thoughts on Obama's impromptu speech today



1. Obama says "It could have been me"

First of all, does anyone doubt that the WH wants to keep this issue before the public so we’re not talking about the WH scandals? The IRS? The NSA? fast & Furious? Bernghazi? etc.

Secondly, has there ever been a more narcissistic person in the WH? Everything ends up being about him.


2. President calls for 'soul-searching' and 'national conversation'

When the left says we need to have a conversation about race what they mean is that people on the right need to sit down and shut up and listen to people on the left bitch. They do NOT mean that conservatives and/or whites get to air their grievances as well. It is always a very one-sided "conversation" that more closely resembles a lecture or a scolding. Witness what the left did to Bill Cosby when he criticized the black community.


3. Obama recalls suffering racial profiling...

Sure, and it's the kind of thing that pisses you off. But it doesn't stop you from going to school or getting a job, or raising a family in a 2-parent home, or staying off drugs, etc. It hurts your feelings, but it doesn't excuse or justify the rampant problems that exist in the black community today.


4. The history of racism 'doesn't go away'

How can it when race pimps like Obama, Sharpton, Jackson, et al never shut up about it? And they'll never shut up about it as long as they keep making money off of it or getting re-elected because of it.


5. Could Trayvon have 'stood his ground on that sidewalk?'

This is downright evil on Obama's part to engage in this type of senseless speculation. In other words, it's exactly what we don't need right now. But Obama never passes up an opportunity to make matters worse when it comes to matters of race.


6. If Trayvon had been white, 'outcome and aftermath might have been different'

Once again, senseless speculation that only feeds the flames of racial hatred.

Way to go, Odummy. In my mind you've gone from being a horrible president to being downright evil.

He attempts to divert the negative attention of the IRS and other failures of his own, to a race-baiting issue that can stir the pot and gain the attention of idiots.

re: Random thoughts on Obama's impromptu speech today


My biggest complaint with Obama is that he had the best platform in the world to address real problems and he has ignored them. He was the first "black POTUS" and could've changed the world. Instead, we are more divided now than we were 20 years ago.

Black on black crime is out of control all across this country. It is not a racial statement, it is merely fact. There has been over 11,000 people shot by guns since Trayvon was shot. Out of those 11,000, 96% of them have been black victims shot by black shooters.

Obama's legacy could've been the savior to all of the face issues we face, but he has turned a blind eye to the very people that put him where he is.

Unfortunately, we are done. I have zero faith that the American people will vote the idiots out of office and put the responsible ones in. I'm not talking about just Dems, there are a ton of idiots on the Repube side as well.

We have too many laws, too many restrictions. As long as we keep passing laws that tell us what we can't do, we will stagnate even more.

The people keep complaining and say they want smaller government. They don't vote that way...

Dividing America, like he's done from the start...It works, and he knows it.

I had a pretty good idea he and his administration would be doing something like this. It doesn't shock me. It's just they're taking race baiting and social issues to a whole new level we've never seen before and it's because their fiscal record and foreign policy is an absolute nightmare so they have to use social issues like this situation to divert attention away from itself.

It's a self preservation instinct on part of the state, fighting to make sure they have control of the public and they are not fully aware of what they are doing.

It's going to take a lot to top him. LBJ comes close IMO.

Truth.

The media has not helped things at all. They've fanned the flames even more on this.

I hate parts of the right but I will admit that when it comes to the left, civil and honest political discourse is rare with them.

He needs to acknowledge that the black community has a problem with themselves particularly with the senseless violence amongst blacks. Since the night GZ/TM was born and the verdict, hundreds of African-americans have been slaughtered by other African-americans and I see nobody noteworthy trying to address it. But I'm afraid it won't be of much help until we end the war on drugs and take a hard look at the damage LBJ's great society program has done.

The Black community is not being honest with itself and its problems.

Agreed, these people are a problem and they only exist to fan the flames. They are the racism industry and that needs to disappear. It starts with getting rid of and marginalizing race baiters and white guilt people. I don't know how it's going to be done because the vehicle and method to do it is just isn't there yet.

People will never learn that stand your ground had nothing to do with this case at all.

Agreed. The POTUS had no business commenting on this at all. It was inappropriate, unethical, and irresponsible to do so.

Bush could never dream of being this bad. He's not capable of sniffing Obama territory.

My favorite quote by him:

quote:

And those of us in authority should be doing everything we can to encourage the better angels of our nature, as opposed to using these episodes to heighten divisions.


Could not be more hypocritical.

What was clear from start to finish is that Obama picked a "side" on this case... a case in which hard evidence was in extremely short supply, and he has no way of knowing whether he's chosen the right side or the wrong side (none of us truly do). His stance is wreckless when you consider the possibility that Zimmerman's life was unjustly threatened is at least (as trial and evidence (or lack thereof) supports) as likely as the fact that Trayvon's life was unjustly threatened.

It's just disturbing that the public consciousness isn't aware of how wreckless and divisive his stance and contributions to this situation are.

re: Random thoughts on Obama's impromptu speech today


Why is it completely acceptable to profile white conservatives as racists when their is no proof of it.

I keep hearing people complain about how it isn't fair that black people are "followed around a store" or "hear door locks lock as they walk through the parking lot"

Yet if a white person disagrees with a black person then they must be racist.

Isn't that hypocrisy?

It's not the disagreeing with a black person that makes you a racist.

It's the disagreeing with a liberal.

re: Random thoughts on Obama's impromptu speech today


Notice how he frames an alternative scenario in which Travon was white. Never does he acknowledge GZ is Hispanic because that only diverts away from his lesson towards white people. His speech was nothing but waging his finger to white America while empathizing with black America. The President never acknowledges one of Hispanic America own killed TM.

Here is the message. It's okay for black on black crime any day of the week but don't kill a black person if you look white. Lets ignore there was a trial and GZ was found innocent as he and his family are under death threats. Absolutely zero sympathy towards the Zimmerman family. How about a President for all Americans? WTF was that today?

Par for the course LA.

I've been inspired to head to north Baton Rouge with a case of beer, and offer to have a beer summit tonight. I plan on discussing the issues with the people.

I'm confident.

Nice post Swoopin.

While true, and I followed a trial for the first time in my life, evidence doesn't go against Zimmerman. Period.

And that's my problem. What is being protested? The mom/dad said race wasn't an issue before and during the trial. The DA didn't bring up race either.

What is the new issue about race now? Total absurdity.

I think he might have LBJ beat and that is not an easy task. But LBJ was really only a one term +1 year president.

Had Trayvon been white, they would have spun it as a racist white kid attacked a Hispanic male.

She brought up profiling but didn't go into race specifically which was really weird?

We have 100 protest scheduled this weekend and Obama wants to show his black unity. They are mad about the outcome and its second nature to play the victim.

I'm talking about the trial. The parents have all of a sudden said this was about race.

It's just absurd. Shameful really. Add in the media, and the PRESIDENT stoking the flames?

Man, we are fricked.
