(NationalSentinel) President Barack Obama will forever go down in U.S. history as our country’s first black commander-in-chief. He should also go down in history as the first president who was expected to finally show that America had moved past its original sin of slavery, but instead, because of him, became more racially divided than ever.
You may have heard about the unbelievably cruel kidnapping and torture of a young white man who was snatched from a suburb near Chicago by four young blacks–two men and two women–then taken to an apartment in the city and tortured for what cops believe was a full 24-hours.
Oh, and part of the crime was even streamed live on Facebook.
During theÂ video portion that was streamed online, black assailants were heard saying things like, “F*** white people!” and “F*** Trump”–direct derogatory references toÂ race.
But not according to the racialist-in-chief, President Obama. No, there’s no such thing as a hate crime when it’s an African-American committing it; only whites can commit hate crimes.
As reported here, White House spokesman Josh Earnest was asked by a reporter today whether or not Obama had any comment about the video and, of course, the alleged crime itself.
Not really, Earnest said. He hadn’t heard.
Was this the level of a hate crime, he was asked?
â€œI think itâ€™s too early to tell. I certainly donâ€™t want to predict where the investigation will lead,â€ Earnest said. â€œI wouldnâ€™t speculate at this point to what degree federal officials would get involved for considering those kinds of crimes.â€
In other words,Â no, the administration doesn’t think so. Otherwise you can betÂ the president’s spokesman would have said so.
Or better yet, Obama himselfÂ would have said so. How do we know? AsÂ Bugout.news reported in July, it’s his modus operandi. If we’ve learned anything at all about our first black president, it’s that he puts his race above everything else:
â€” HeÂ took the sideÂ of his former Harvard professor, Henry Louis Gates, when Gates was arrested by a white Cambridge Police sergeant for what looked like a break-in. Obama said the police â€œacted stupidly,â€ even before he knew the details of the case. And in this early incident, Obama planted the seeds of what weâ€™re seeing playing out today against our police when he said during a news conference after Gatesâ€™ arrest (but before he knew details), â€œ[T]hereâ€™s a long history in this country of African-Americans and Latinos being stopped by law enforcement disproportionately.â€ The incident shows â€œhow race remains a factor in this society.â€ [Sure it does, Mr. President,Â because you have made sure of that, havenâ€™t you?]
â€” In the Trayvon Martin case â€“ in which a jury exonerated his killer, George Zimmerman â€“ Obama said Martin â€œcould have been me 35 years ago,â€ once more insinuating that American society in general (and police in particular) areÂ racists.
â€” Following the killing of a black thug, Michael Brown, in Ferguson, Missouri, ObamaÂ again singled out police, claiming 1) that what happened was police â€œabuse;â€ and 2) that the alleged abuse â€œis not an isolated incident.â€ Never mind that that a grand jury and a Justice Department inquiry found 1) police officer Darren Wilson was justified in shooting Brown; and 2) the â€œhands up, donâ€™t shootâ€ narrative adopted by the Black Lives Matter movement, which sprang out of Ferguson,Â was bogusÂ and did not happen.
â€” After repeat offender Freddie Gray died from self-induced head-bashing inside a police van in Baltimore, ObamaÂ once againÂ laid the blame at the feet of police,Â claiming, â€œThis is not new, and we should not pretend that itâ€™s new.â€ Translation:Â Cops kill black menÂ all the time. [By the way, a jury has now found all of the police officers charged in Grayâ€™s deathÂ innocent, which â€“ if the liberals who run Baltimore had any integrity â€“Â should lead to the dismissalÂ of the racist who brought the charges, Baltimore Stateâ€™s Attorney Marilyn Mosby.]
â€” Following the death of Eric Garner, who was resisting arrest for selling cigarettes illegally in New York City, Obama began using the word â€œracistâ€ toÂ describeÂ police killingsÂ of black men. And as usual, he claimed that racial discrimination is â€œdeeply embedded in society.â€ [Actually it is â€˜deeply embeddedâ€™ in his administration.]
That’s what we like to call in the news business aÂ pattern of behavior.
What happened to the young white man in Chicago should never happen toÂ anyone, let’s be clear about that. But hate crimes statutes were either implemented to coverÂ allÂ races and ethnicities or they weren’t. And if they weren’t, our Left-wing radical president and his Democratic Party need to publicly explain to the country why that’s the case.
In the meantime, all we can do is hope that the Chicago Police Department and the county prosecuting attorney have the moral turpitude to do the right thing and add the charge of hate crimes to the long list of offenses these four young black men and women will face.
Even if our race-conscious president doesn’t think it’s appropriate.
UPDATE: Police in Chicago included “hate crime” among the other charges for the four individuals.
