According to the president, the United States is less racially divided than ever before and the issue of race relations is surfacing “in a way that probably is healthy.”
Obama welcomed the attention race relations and policing in minority communities have attracted recently and said he believes there will be “progress” on those issues in the next year as a result of the task force of police, community leaders and activists he assembled this year.
He’s talking about people like the sh*t-stirring Al Sharpton and the DOJ Community Relations Service. Yes, thanks to the Rev. Al and Holder’s community organizers – “progress” is being made. (Even CNN put the word “progress” in sneer quotes.)
“I actually think that [the U.S. is] probably in its day-to-day interactions less racially divided,” Obama said in an interview with NPR released Monday and recorded before his family vacation in Hawaii. “The issue of police and communities of color being mistrustful of each other is hardly new; that dates back a long time. It’s just something that hasn’t been talked about.”
Listen to the “Healer-in-Chief” go on with this therapeutic-sounding bravo-sierra:
President Obama believes the racial tensions over the police shootings of unarmed black Americans have “surfaced in a way that probably is healthy,” he said in a recent interview with NPR.
“I think that the fact that there’s a conversation about [racial divides and police mistrust], and that there are tools out there that we know can make a difference in bridging those gaps of understanding and mistrust, should make us optimistic,” Obama said.
Does Obama’s conversation include anything about the high crime rate among young black males? The epidemics of black on black and black on white crimes? Do the community organizers encourage blacks in crime-infested communities to stay in school, stay away from drugs, obey the law, respect the law, have personal responsibility, traditional morality, reject generational dependency on government? No? Then his “conversation” is worse than worthless. It’s doing more harm than good.
So far the Community-Organizer-in-Chief’s “conversation” on race has contributed to a climate of anti-cop hate that has resulted in the assassination of two cops in NYC and numerous other attacks on law enforcement officers.
Two Los Angeles police officers were shot at Sunday night while they drove their patrol car in the southern part of the city, police said. The officers returned fire, authorities said, and no one was injured.
Phew. That means no violent race riots in retaliation.
One suspect was arrested and two weapons, including a rifle, were recovered. Another remains at large, prompting a manhunt that lasted for hours and involved about 100 officers, LAPD Capt. Lillian Carranza said.
And there was a second incident over the weekend in which police were fired at, this one in Florida on Sunday morning.Someone fired three bullets at two deputies with the Pasco County Sheriff’s Office as they sat in their patrol car.
A Durham, NC police officer sitting in a parked car saved his own life Thursday night by catching the approach of two men in his squad car’s rear-view mirror.
The officer exited his vehicle to confront the pair, when one of the would-be assassins opened fire without saying a word:
A Durham police officer dove for cover Thursday night after a man walked up and began shooting at him, police said Friday.
The incident happened about 10 p.m. on Lakeland Street, just north of Truman Street. Police said Officer J.T. West was sitting in his patrol car, working on a report, when he saw two men approaching his car from behind.
As West got out of the car to speak to them, one of the men pulled out a gun and began firing, police said. The man fired six shots at West, striking the patrol car once.
West fired two rounds in return. Police said it wasn’t known if West wounded either of the men.
Hopefully (for shop owners near Lakeland and Truman in Durham) neither of these gentle giants were harmed after opening fire on the police officer.
One more via Gateway Pundit: Recent Parolee Arrested in Shooting Off-Duty St. Louis Police Officer:
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported:
A recent parolee has been charged in the shooting last weekend of an off-duty St. Louis police officer in the city’s Hyde Park neighborhood.
Authorities said the officer was critically injured Dec. 19 in a gunfight with people in a car driven by the parolee, Dominic Lamont Irons, 29, of the 2800 block of Delmar Boulevard.
A court document says one of the others in the car was killed in the shootout. At least one other person was still being sought by police.
You know what the country needs right now? A conversation about white privilege.
When Department of Justice officials arrived in Ferguson, Mo., one day after the death of Michael Brown, it wasn’t just to conduct an investigation on potential civil-rights violations. In fact, officials from one Justice Department office were conducting meetings with Ferguson residents to educate them on subjects such as “white privilege.”
The DOJ’s Community Relations Service arrived in Ferguson purportedly to lessen the tension between protesters and city officials. But sources who attended the DOJ’s private gatherings with Ferguson residents tell NRO that the Justice Department also sought to educate and question the community about the issues of white privilege and racism. The political nature of the Justice Department’s intervention in Ferguson may not be exclusive to its interactions with residents; it also might have affected its ongoing investigations into the Ferguson Police Department and officer Darren Wilson.
That is the conversation Obama and his community organizing “task force” is cramming down the nation’s throat instead of one that could actually do some good.
Look what else Obama’s “healthy racial tensions” have inspired.
The latest issue of Al Qaeda’s Inspire magazine includes notes on Ferguson and Eric Garner’s death. The magazine hopes to lure young African-Americans to their cause by including mentions of Mike Brown and the “Don’t shoot” campaign.
PJ Media reported:
The latest issue of al-Qaeda’s Inspire magazine includes notes referencing the deaths of Michael Brown, Eric Garner and Tamir Rice, and suggests that a March gas explosion that leveled two Harlem apartment buildings may have not been an accident.
The Winter 2014 issue — an “open source jihad special” — is largely devoted to lauding recent “lone mujahid” attacks and encouraging future lone wolves, as the U.S. government calls them, to try a new al-Qaeda recipe for a bomb they claim can fool airport security.
The slick publication from Al-Malahem Media, the media arm of al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, features a jetliner on the cover plowing through stormy clouds, with the headline “Neurotmesis: Cutting the nerves and isolating the head” — stressing that the “main goal” of 9/11 was “economy hemorrhage.”
Of course. This cluster-F wouldn’t be complete without some healthy input from one of the world’s most notorious terrorist groups. How long before ISIS weighs in?
