According to Flypaper, Obama has blood on his hands for escalating racial tensions in the nation and inciting violence such as the church shooting that tragically claimed nine innocent lives on Wednesday evening, June 17, 2015 in Charleston, South Carolina. I’ve had a busy week and when I heard about the shooting at the historic church, I was very upset. I didn’t rush online to get the details because I knew they would there for me when I had time to read the articles. I wasn’t concerned with the skin color of the victims nor the skin color of the shooter. It didn’t matter to me. People in a church just seven hours by automobile from where I live were killed by some thug.
Fast forward to Thursday afternoon when I was on Facebook. There are links to articles where the current president was doing his usual pontificating about the need for more gun control. Here we go again, I thought. I linked to Rush Limbaugh’s transcript regarding the shootings where Rush was talking about the media rushing to judgment and immediately advocating the need for more gun control. Rush didn’t mention that the church was a historic black church.
When I returned to my Facebook homepage, a Friend had shared a post asking everyone to pray for the members of the Charleston A.M.E. church who had lost their lives in a shooting. It was only at this time I learned that the victims of the shooting were black. A.M.E. stands for African Methodist Episcopal (I think). Again, their skin color didn’t matter. I knew the shooter had been caught, but I still didn’t know the color of his skin, nor did I care. Although, I did suspect he was probably white because an attorney who I used to work with did indicated to me that statistically blacks don’t generally go into public places and start shooting, but whites generally do. And over the years, I’ve observed that to be true. So, it was just a couple of hours ago, that I learned that the church where the shooting took place was a historically black church and the shooter was white, and the victims were black.
I’m now reviewing an article on al.com indicating that an agency that tracks extremists and white supremacist organizations says the suspect in the fatal shooting wasn’t known to officials there. Also, the president of the Southern Poverty Law Center, which, in my opinion is a liberal hate group, has said that the suspect was also not known to the organization.
So, within less than twenty-four hours, it’s being speculated that the shooter was some sort of white supremacist and whether or not he is connected to any of the sixteen white supremacist organizations operating in South Carolina.
Richard Cohen, the president of the Southern Poverty Law Center goes on to say that after visiting the suspect’s Facebook page, he saw a picture where the suspect was wearing a jacket with emblems of the old apartheid regime in South Africa and the former African nation of Rhodesia, which was the name of Zimbabwe under white rule.
Kyle Campbell, a student at the University of Alabama and state president of the Alabama College Democrats has already come out and said this is a race issue. Did suspect Dylann Roof shoot these people just because they were black and he doesn’t like blacks? That is currently being speculated.
Fifty-two years after Dr. Martin Luther King’s I Have a Dream speech, whether or not race was involved in this tragedy shouldn’t be an issue. What should be an issue is that an obviously disturbed individual entered a church in Charleston, South Carolina and prayed along with others in the church. Then the disturbed individual took out a gun and started firing it and killed nine innocent people.
In Dr. King’s speech, he had dream that one day the ancestors of former slaves and former slave owners would sit side by side at the table of brotherhood and that one day his four little children would be judged not by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character. Fifty-two years later, the dream has not been fulfilled and do you know why? It’s because of the liberals/Democrats/progressives or whatever they want to call themselves now days. The programs they have introduced since the Civil Rights Act of 1964 was passed such as Affirmative Action, Black Power, Critical Race Theory, etc. have served to further segregate the races and kept blacks from fulfilling their potential while increasing racial tensions in this nation.
In an earlier post, I said that the blood of Tamir Rice was on the hands liberals/Democrats/progressives, and now the blood of these nine victims is also on the hands of liberals/Democrats/progressives.
Could all this speculation about race signal the beginning of something? Could it be that, one of these days, if I’m in a crowded mall and accidently step on the toe of someone black, will the incident automatically be labeled as racially motivated? I don’t like some of the things I’m hearing from some of the black/charlatan leaders such as Al Sharpton. There is a war on white people in this nation and I’m concerned about this. In fact, I’m concerned about many things going on in this nation. Will Dr. King’s dreams ever be realized? It doesn’t look that way. Ask a liberal why and they’ll tell you it is because whites/Republicans are racist bigots. But they are WRONG!
My dream is for liberals/Democrats/progressives to look at the enemy and discover that the enemy is them.
