The term “Stay the course” as popularized by Presidents George W. Bush, George H. W. Bush, and Ronald Reagan means to pursue an objective regardless of any obstacles or criticism in times of war. The opposite term, “cut and run” is an accurate descriptor for Obama’s war time strategy. But what Obama lacks as a Commander in Chief, he more than makes up for as Community Organizer in Chief.
At a White House meeting with a group of race hustlers one day after the midterm shellacking, the president used the phrase “stay on course” in reference to the racial battle that is being waged in one of our nation’s cities.
Attendees at that meeting included Al Sharpton, NAACP president Cornell Brooks, National Urban League president Marc Morial.
At the time, a White House official gave a bland statement regarding the meeting, saying that it “included a discussion of ObamaCare implementation, education, and criminal justice issues.”
“The president also highlighted how we are looking forward to working with the leaders over the next two years to advance these and other critical issues facing the country,” the official said.
In Sunday’s New York Times, more details emerged.
According to the Rev. Al Sharpton, who has appeared frequently in St. Louis with the Brown family and delivered a speech at Mr. Brown’s funeral, Mr. Obama “was concerned about Ferguson staying on course in terms of pursuing what it was that he knew we were advocating. He said he hopes that we’re doing all we can to keep peace.”
The regime’s extortion racket has kicked in – as the threat of a race war in Ferguson Missouri looms, some definite objectives are being pursued by the racial grievance industry.
Protest leaders said wholesale change was ultimately what they were demanding, though not all agreed on what that meant. Some called for the removal of the Ferguson police chief or the entire department. Others said they want the police to wear cameras; civilian review boards for all police shootings; or a requirement that ethnic and racial makeup of police departments match the communities they serve.
“It must be changing how police and citizens relate to one another,” said Michael T. McPhearson, the co-chairman of the Don’t Shoot Coalition. “We’re calling for police accountability, police transparency, changing how the police do their work. If there’s an indictment or if there’s not an indictment, we still have that work to do.”
Former FBI Assistant Director and Law Enforcement Legal Defense Fund President Ron Hosko sends “a scathing letter to President Obama detailing the damage done to the relationship between law enforcement and DOJ over the past six years.”
“The hyper-politicization of justice issues has made it immeasurably more difficult for police officers to simply do their jobs. The growing divide between the police and the people – perhaps best characterized by protesters in Ferguson, Mo., who angrily chanted, “It’s not black or white. It’s blue!” – only benefits of members of a political class seeking to vilify law enforcement for other societal failures. This puts our communities at greater risk, especially the most vulnerable among us,” Hosko wrote in the letter exclusively obtained by Townhall. “Your attorney general, Eric Holder, is chief among the antagonists. During his tenure as the head of the Department of Justice, Mr. Holder claims to have investigated twice as many police and police departments as any of his predecessors. Of course, this includes his ill-timed decision to launch a full investigation into the Ferguson Police Department at the height of racial tensions in that community, throwing gasoline on a fire that was already burning. Many officers were disgusted by such a transparent political maneuver at a time when presidential and attorney general leadership could have calmed a truly chaotic situation.”
