President Obama, Governor Dayton fan Flames of Racism after Police Shootings

Arizona -(Ammoland.com)- Early reports are that two officers have been shot at a Black Lives Matter rally in Dallas.

President Obama, once again, could not wait or ask for calm after an interracial shooting that appeared questionable on first reports. 

It is impossible to know how this one will turn out, but it is absolutely irresponsible for the President to fan the flames of racism with remarks mere hours after the shooting, before numerous questions have been answered or any serious investigation has been undertaken.

From the nytimes.com:

In his comments, President Obama made a point of emphasizing that protests and outrage after that shooting and one in Baton Rouge early Tuesday morning that was captured on video, did not constitute a bias against the police, saying that, “to be concerned about these issues is not to be against law enforcement.”

“I would just ask those who question the sincerity or the legitimacy of protests and vigils and expressions of outrage, who somehow label those expressions of outrage as ‘political correctness,’ I just ask folks to step back and think,” he said. “What if this happened to somebody in your family? How would you feel?”

The point is that we do not know precisely what happened yet.  It is a rush to judgement.  It is impossible to know this early.  President Obama has a habit of rushing to judgement when  cases that might be white on black make the news.

He has been repeatedly wrong. He was wrong about the arrest of Henry Lois Gates. He was wrong about Treyvon Martin.  He was wrong about Michael Brown in Ferguson.  He was wrong about Freddie Gray.

When there are questionable shootings of white people, no remarks are forthcoming.  The president did not call for an investigation when Eric Scott was shot in Las Vegas. Scott's shooting may be remarkably similar to the recent shooting in Falcon Heights.  He did not ask people to feel what it might be like to be one of Lavoy Finicum ‘s family.

He has been all too willing to jump to racist conclusions about white police officers.  His intemperate remarks have driven the country into disparate racial groups that are more divided than at any time since the middle 1960's.

His words  have inflamed emotions and almost certainly lead to attacks on police officers.  It is breaking that two officers have been shot at a Black Lives Matter rally in Dallas, Texas.

I wonder if President Obama will ask us all to wonder what it would be like to be a member of those officers' families.  It appears that the President does not think that police lives or white lives matter.

Governor Dayton of Minnesota has been just as bad.  Mere hours into the investigation of the Falcon Heights shooting, long before conclusions can be legitimately drawn, he is jumping to them and inflaming racial tensions.

From the washingtonpost.com:

 ST. PAUL, Minn. — Following a fatal police shooting in a quiet suburb that rapidly rippled across the nation, Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton said in no uncertain terms Thursday that Philando Castile ended up dead at least in part because he was black.

These Democrat politicians do the nation a great disservice by exacerbating racial tensions instead of seeking calm and deliberate investigations.  Rushing to judgement undermines the rule of law.

    Welcome back to the sixties folks!! We ve just stepped back into our parents and grand parents legacy from 50 yrs ago. Fast forward from Birmingham Selma and Montgomery to Sanford, Baltimore, NYC, St Louis, Baton Rouge and St Paul. Everything comes to full circle and we are at the crest of completion.

    @Mercur87,good point. I actually remember the turbulent ’60’s very well too. I really get kinda pis*sed off when some people say MLK would had been against this and that, and promoted peace and tolerance. My recollections of MLK were that he was a loud mouthed,little runt,that was an antagonist and almost always left violence in his wake wherever he went. (99% of the time with Brotha Jesse next to him)

    I was born and raised in Minnesota, and Gov. Mark Dayton IS a moron. Dayton is embarrassed by having been born into great wealth, but is too cowardly to give it all away and live like normal people. Dayton just poured five gallons of gasoline on the situation in Roseville and is too stupid to know it.

    you SURE he’s too stupid to know it? My take is he’s smart enough to know it, and has acted out of premeditated malice. that seems to be the pattern of the “stupid” in political control. Not much is really “accidental” or “stupid”. there is a clear agenda being worked out here.

    I live in Minnesota and Gov Dayton is a moron. He is an extreme liberal that follows every liberal agenda piece without question. Everything that Obama says or wants, he follows. Dayton is a disgrace. We have 2 senators that are the same way as Dayton. They are both mouth pieces for the liberal agenda as well. Everything Obama says or wants, they follow.

    That African-White-Arab IslamoMarxist mongrel wants to justify a declaration of martial law in order to remain the USSA’s dictator. I suggest he do some reading concerning the end times of Benito Mussolini, Nicolai Ceausescu and Salvador Allende.

    Let’s talk about Barack Obama and the Democrats for a minute. The Republicans are for a different time and discussion. But not to worry I’m just as critical of the Right as I am of the Left. I consider myself an equal opportunity offender. And evidently I’m one of the last voters in the United States who can connect the dots, from one point to another and come up with an original observation and personal opinion… So here goes…. Get Ready… The Obama/Clinton/Biden Administration. Why have they failed individually and as a collective group? I’ll frame the Incumbent Democrats in… Read more »

    President Barack Obama is a whore. Barack Obama flamed the hatred and rubber-stamped retribution on our country’s law enforcement officers in Ferguson, in New York where the two law enforcement personnel where executed while sitting eating lunch in their car, and a host of others. Now Dallas, and Obama is, and has been back-pedaling positioning himself as a friend and supporter of our law enforcement personnel. Obama is nothing more than a back-stabbing liar. Law enforcement should do the country a favor and permanently silence Obama. Obama has done more to flame racism, hatred of law enforcement personnel by minority… Read more »

    You’re a moron. If anyone is inflaming racial tensions it’s all of you white people who have refused to be respectful of a black president let alone tolerant. The president is not the problem. White America is the problem. You guys, especially whites in the south, can’t seem to move past the fact that it’s the 21st century and society and American culture are have dramatically changed/shifted from the 19th and 20th centuries when this kind of shit was borderline acceptable. Just for once, try and put yourselves in a minority’s shoes. Last time I checked, no white person has… Read more »

    So now, Brian, by your implication, murdering cops is the “kind of sh*t [which is] borderline acceptable”? If you think that, you’re either a moron, an amoral swine, or both. And can you please tell me why anyone who just happened to be born white should be obligated to support ANY President of ANY race, color or creed who doesn’t support his/her politics? People of your ilk have the opinion that, “Sure, you can be a conservative or a libertarian, but if you’re white, you’re still a racist if you don’t support Obama, just because he’s black.” You’re the racist,… Read more »

    “…all of you white people…”? “White America is the problem.” No white person has ever gotten pulled over etc etc” That is the voice of inexperience. Have you ever been involved in operations where all your lives where on the line? You’d be surprised how well people of differing colors can get along. These words that you are repeating are the bread and butter of race hustlers that make money off of it. And as far as the last time you checked, I don’t think that you ever checked because more white people are killed by cops each year, than… Read more »

    you’ve taken the lazy boy’s path and drunk the KoolAde supplied by the string pullers behind the scenes. You have not examined reality nor thought things through. READ Marx and Alinsky. Obama has… and so have I. Studied them extensively, in fact. The main difference between his sorry self and me is that I see through their lies, rather than blindly memorise them as truth. Their system, their world as they see it, is seriously flawed. Obama has been campaigning to effect the teachings of both of these sick men, and has done well at it. Fools such as yourself… Read more »

    Irontiger and Brian, you both sound very much included in the group of people the Demoncrats want you to be. No work, just rely on the govt. to support you and you have become intrenched with that philosophy and can’t figure out how to get out of your hole. Most white people I know actually work and pay taxes. What a difference in opinion that brings. Whites work for what they get, but it doesn’t give them any benefits to violate laws. Laws and abiding those laws are the foundation of why we are free people.

    @Irontigger, “as long as they don’t get uppity” . That is not the way it works in the military. Part on one’s oath is to obey the orders of the officers appointed above you. Had you ever placed your life on the alter of freedom on behalf of your fellow Americans, you might know that. In the chain of command, color plays no part. Your insults ring hollow because you lack the experience of placing your life in the hands of your squad member, and the shared joy of just being alive after the operation. Your insults have no meaning… Read more »

    White America is not the problem, the liberal keep this racist crap going to divide the people so we are easier to control ( by the way dividing the people with racism is one of the 8 step to socialism/communism ( slaves to the government ).If saying that only black lives matter is not racism!
    sounds like racism to me, all lives matter!

    Obviously you were never a cop so I will take your comments as based out of ignorance. I served for 25 years including homicide and most of the homicides were black on black. I am also fully aware that not all cops are good, both black and white. I had far more white people give me a problem than I did black but the blacks that did give me a problem refused to comply with lawful orders. Maybe that is what black lives matter; a group funded by socialist like George Soros, should be doing is educating blacks to obey… Read more »

    Len, I agree with what you have written, except the permanent silence him part. If that happened, he would become a black saint. When Barry “the puppet” Soetoro is out of office the puppet masters will no longer have a need for him, and he will live the rest of his live in a kind of purgatory where no one ever listens to him again. That permanent silence awaits him, as surely as the darkness darkness follows the light.
