Obama stepped into it though way back, way way back, when he decided to comment on Henry Louis Gates' arrest. Obama called that stupid despite not knowing the full facts, and here we are years later, hearing him spout off on every brush up the media shoves in our face. This takes the obvious Left race narrative and places it into the symbol of authority (the president) on television. For the system, he was a perfect selection to aggravate racial and ethnic tensions rather than be the post-racial healer.
It is horrible that traffic stops turn into shootings. We have seen it both from cops shooting crooks and crooks shooting cops. It is horrible to have snipers taking pot shots at police ordered to protect a march. It is completely irresponsible to have symbolic figures trying to score political points, especially when one such figure is a bizarre vessel of hope for a class of people that eats up the Left's message like syrup.
The media and its symbols do not care. This is going to get worse.
-----------------------Last week I covered how the State Dept tried to end Vietnam in '63. State was all set to hand Vietnam to the commies, but the Pentagon did not cooperate. Red Empire thought they were in a fair fight. Nope. Weimerica Weekly covered the Ferguson Effect, and might be the most perfectly timed podcast I have done so far.
This week should cover the kingdom Robert Moses created and Weimerica Weekly will tackle the normalization of sex work. Many of you sent me the Vanity Fair article on the casual approach to sex work of many women.
