A mixed race Trayvon Martin is killed by a mixed race, and so far uncharged, George Zimmerman, and We the People are admonished to search our souls since the deceased looks like President Obama’s imaginary son.
Souls are searched.
Souls in Florida impanel a grand jury to determine if sufficient evidence exists to bring charges against a broken nosed-Zimmerman for the homicide and a U.S. Justice Department investigation is commenced to determine if Martin’s civil rights were violated.
Problem solved? Not according to the souls of New Black Panthers, certain non-Pastoral “Reverends”, and the director of “Do the Right Thing”.
New Black Panthers (only recently granted the right to wield billy clubs outside polling places on Election Days when Eric Holder, President Barack Obama’s attorney general, dropped voter intimidation charges against them) post kidnapping bounties for Zimmerman, aided and abetted by inaccurate Spike Lee tweets that force an unrelated elderly couple to flee their home, as Revs. (without portfolio) Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton claim “blacks are under attack” and call for an escalation of civil disobedience, respectively; and the nation’s Chief Magistrate says…nothing.
Clearly, President Obama considers all souls to have been sufficiently searched and subsequent actions by so-called civil rights advocates to be appropriate. Could this be because neither George Zimmerman nor that elderly couple forced to flee from an angry mob look like any of Barack’s imaginary friends or relatives? Or is it because he is too busy making promises to appease Russia after the election and demonizing oil companies before the election?
Camel-Not vs. Camelot
Would that the present occupant of the Oval Office: had been steeped in Holy Scripture by a “reverend” other than Jeremiah Wright; didn’t refer to the nation’s #1 racist by the honorific “Minister”, when referring Louis Farrakhan; and considered racial discrimination against non-blacks to also be a moral issue.
We used to have a president, nominated by the Democratic Party no less, who appealed to the better angels of our nature to end and prevent riot in the streets and vigilante justice, respectively. The State of Alabama was aflame after Attorney General Robert Kennedy had directed federal troops to enforce 14th Amendment school integration against Governor George Wallace’s wishes, when President John F. Kennedy gave what may have been his finest and most important address to the nation when he said:
It is better to settle these matters in the courts than on the streets, and…We are confronted primarily with a moral issue. It is as old as the Scriptures and is as clear as the American Constitution.
How hard would it be for President Barack Obama on April 1, 2012 to utter the words that President Kennedy uttered on June 11, 1963? Yet, instead of moral leadership from the Oval Office: police are determined at have acted stupidly before Beer Summit investigations (Professor’s skin color similar to Obama’s?); Americans are hectored as race cowards; and souls are searched based upon how many drops of “slave blood” have coursed through the veins of homicide victims and perpetrators.
And you thought Dan Quayle was no Jack Kennedy? Barack Obama presides over Camel-NOT!
