Race politics and identity politics are dividing American society, and there is nothing ‘grassroots’ about it. It’s all engineered from the top down.
On November 5th, the day after US midterm elections, President Barack Obama met with Ferguson ‘activist’ leaders. It was not part of his daily schedule. He proceeded to tell protesters to, “stay on course”. Did the President mean ‘stay on course for the rioting’?
Why is Obama meeting with violent protesters before a preliminary verdict is reached in what could be a protracted legal case?
Why would a U.S. President want to inject himself into a overly politicized, volatile local matter? It’s something we’ve come to expect from this President, who acts a lot more like a precinct-obsessed Mayor of a city (there’s a job for you in Chicago), or petty dictator, than a President.
The lesson which the race baiting mobs should have learned from the Trayvon Martin-George Zimmerman trial – but didn’t, is that you cannot prove that racism was a factor in the individual altercation. The jury decided as such with Zimmerman, but the mobs still raged.
