Obama Blames the Thugs in Baltimore? Here’s Why.

When the po po kill a black man there are a few things that we can count on.

First, the blacks in the town will tear up their own neighborhoods, loot and destroy everything in sight and take the opportunity to stock up on TV’s, Tampons and Turtle Food. (I know, right!)

But when you are in a fevered frenzy about something, when “no justice, no peace” is the slogan of the day, it doesn’t matter if you are homeless and blind, you’re gonna take that TV. If you are post-menopausal (or male) the Tampons bring justice, somehow. And who owns a turtle in the Baltimore Ghetto?

Well, it isn’t the loot, it’s the chant that counts.

No justice, no peace.

No justice, no peace.

No justice, no peace.

There are other mantra’s one can chant that gets you in the same looting spirit. “Hand’s up, don’t shoot” is a good one.

And racist white people like me (obviously I am racist because I am white. To the left the two are synonymous) who probably sleep in KKK pajamas, a casual statement of the obvious just reinforces the racist tag. But I will state the obvious anyway.

Why the hell do they burn their own neighborhood and destroy the few places that have jobs?

Well, racists like us don’t understand. We use pre-Common Core logic and that no longer applies. Somehow it makes perfect sense to tear up your own shite in a display of anger so everyone knows you are not just looting, you are expressing outrage for decades of repression and abuse at the hand of “The Man”. And in this post Common Core world destroying businesses that provide jobs in your neighborhood is a perfectly logical way to say “I AM IMPOVERISHED”.

No, you didn’t build that, but you damn sure tore it down.

And a dead black guy at the hands of the police is all the race-baiter in chief – Barack Obama – and his “post racial America” Horsemen of the Apocalypse Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson and Elijah Cummings need to swoop in and force everyone in charge to resign in shame as if they themselves had pulled a trigger.

But this time was different. Obama sat back quietly and said nothing for the longest time. Not even a “the police acted stupidly” did he utter.

So why is this different than Ferguson? What had Obama’s tongue tied in knots so tight he couldn’t even propose a beer summit?

Well, if you said that there are no white people in positions of authority in Baltimore you would be both a racist and correct. A “right” racist. Has a nice ring to it, doesn’t it?

Baltimore Police Commissioner Anthony Batts

Police Commissioner Anthony Bats was the “man” in Oakland before coming to Baltimore. Batts presided over street upheaval twice in 2010, when a regional transit police officer was convicted of manslaughter – not murder – in the shooting death of an unarmed black man at Oakland’s Fruitvale Station, and when he was sentenced.

Not exactly what Obama and Sharpton were looking for to blame.




Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake

Her honor Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake who moonlights as the Secretary of the DNC. And prior to the riots, the mayor promised to “give those who wished to destroy space to do that”.

Not exactly what Obama and Sharpton were looking for to blame, either.





I just shook my head as various news outlets looked for someone else to blame. After all, blaming the people in charge would be racist.

So they went after the new Republican governor Larry Hogan, who happens to be white. “Why isn’t he sending in the National Guard?”; they asked.

Well, that went away when he said that he had alerted the guard and was in close communications with the mayor on if or when to deploy.

CNN found a suitable place to lay blame. Anchor Brooke Baldwin decided to blame the Veterans who came back from war and became cops.

But in the end, there were no white people who could be blamed, and this administration was left with no one to blame except the thugs who looted and burned their own homes.

So when all was said and done, Obama was forced to take race out of the equation and actually blame the people who threw the bricks and lit the fires for the destruction.

Wouldn’t it have been brilliant leadership had Obama done the same in all of the other instances where he ran his mouth before he knew what was going on?

So if all my scribbling about race here has offended you, good. It was intentional.

We have become a nation that first looks at any problem through the prism of race and politics. And we are unable to resolve any of the tough issues. It is not because race is a delicate issue, it is because race is not a part of the problem until people like Obama and Sharpton make it an issue. Sharpton gets rich, Obama gets enraged voters and America burns because we allow Obama and Sharpton to define the issue and they always make it about race.

It is the thugs. It is the looters. It is the malcontents looking for some fun. And when people try to justify this behavior as a perfectly understandable response to an issue, they perpetuate the destruction and the violence.

What we can learn from Baltimore is that sometimes, more often than not, cops kill people. Not because the city is racist, not because the cop is racist, but because it happened. And when we make it about race, we will only fix the problem if is truly about race. Which is rare.

Leaders are expected to lead us to higher ground. The leadership we have seen from Obama and Holder has led us into the racial gutter. And it is not by accident, I fear.

Let the legal system hold the officers and thugs accountable. We are a nation of laws. Inciting riots by promising “space” is not lawful leadership. It is quite the opposite.

Riots, looting and thuggery is not peaceful protest. It is criminal. And we need leadership, not instigation.

    The juvenile thugs burned the CVS Drugstore Monday after they looted it. The mayor ordered the police to stand down and give them room to “destroy.”

    Tuesday the people were asking where they were going to buy milk, bread, diapers, formula, and how they were going to get their prescriptions filled?

    The “community leaders” justified the violence and stated that the community erupted because there was no economic development, a failed education system [THE FREE PUBLIC EDUCATION SYSTEM], and no jobs.

    So they burned the brand new CVS as a statement- a gem and a corporate investment in the center of a cesspool. Who would build anything there now?

    Watts 2.0. Watts never recovered from the riots that destroyed it.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
