The Christian community that was targeted by a white supremacist in Charleston earlier this month, has from the first moments, handled the massacre of nine fellow churchgoers with dignity and grace. No race-baiting. No calls for political reforms. No lashing out at political enemies….All that has been done. But by professional race-baiters and the Community Organizer in Chief – not the people of Charleston.
That has been the one blessing that has come out of this horrific incident.
David Forsmark at PJ Media thinks “Obama seems awfully disappointed by how Christians in Charleston have used the Charleston atrocity to glorify God from the pulpit of Emanuel AME Church instead of looking to his Bully Pulpit.”
(And Obama really knows how to put the “bully” in the bully pulpit.”)
He and his Soros-funded shock troops were ready to exploit the hell out of this tragedy in the name of the nine victims. But the community had other ideas.
In fact, the president got so pathetically desperate for attention this weekend that while people in Charleston were praising Jesus, he went on Marc Maron’s cult podcast and dropped an N-bomb.
There, THAT ought to get everybody’s attention!
However, it really didn’t. Even the president doing a professorial version of Snoop Dogg became a side issue, as the only speech that riveted the nation this week, about how we all ought to act as children of God, came from Rev. Norvell Goff of Emanuel AME Church.
Democrats spent the weekend trying to get the focus back on Obama and their agenda, where they think it belongs. Congresswoman Donna Edwards on Fox News Sunday lamented that it would be a shame if all that came out of the Congress after this event was “a moment of silence,” while on Howard Kurtz’s Media Buzz, Joe Trippi lamented at the unlikelihood of any legislation coming from this.
And while the Sunday hosts were uncomfortable directly addressing concepts of Christianity (even as they broadcast the church service at Emanuel), they too tried to turn the topic to politics with the family members who were their big “gets” for the day as interview subjects.
But it was to no avail. “Today is not about politics,” came the firm answer in one form or another from all of them. And while the families of the murdered Charleston Christians meant it for the glory of God, it was unintentionally directly opposed to the agenda of Barack Obama.
“It’s not black lives that matter anymore. ALL LIVES MATTER,” a black speaker said to thunderous applause.
I wonder if the gentleman understood how politically incorrect those words were? Hillary Clinton got lambasted today for having the presumption of saying those same words at a church in Florissant, Mo.
See Twitchy for the (almost comical if it wasn’t so sad) unhinged reactions of racialist lefties on Twitter.
The Twitter hashtag #GoHomeDeray trended over the weekend as #BlackLivesMatter activist Deray Mckesson (of Ferguson, New York, Baltimore and McKinney fame) brought his toxic, race-baiting roadshow to Charleston.
Steven Miller, The Wilderness: Red Flag: The Cowardice of the Media and the Courage of Charleston:
Charleston turned their back on hate, and did so without occupying a park, torching a business, smashing up a single cop car, or burning a single American flag. It’s a country we aren’t used to seeing anymore, which is why the images from worshippers joining hands and embracing each other in faith felt so viscerally moving to so many. It’s something we haven’t seen in awhile and it’s not something the far left wants us to see. Progressive and network media were happy to wrap themselves in a biased political narrative about an outdated flag. The rest of the country wrapped itself in the of the arms of the victims, their families, and the congregants of Emanuel A.M.E. Church, and let it be known loud and clear that they were not alone. Charleston, like New York or Boston, is not alone.
That is the country we are.
I would never have guessed that a white on black mass-shooting in a Southern church would be the impetus for people to turn away from the toxic, racial grievance industry – but that seems to be what’s happening. God surely works in mysterious ways.
