(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 the video portion that was streamed online, black assailants were heard saying things like, “F*** white people!” and “F*** Trump”–direct derogatory references to 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?
“I think it’s too early to tell. I certainly don’t want to predict where the investigation will lead,” Earnest said. “I wouldn’t speculate at this point to what degree federal officials would get involved for considering those kinds of crimes.”
In other words, no, the administration doesn’t think so. Otherwise you can bet the president’s spokesman would have said so.
Or better yet, Obama himself would have said so. How do we know? As 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:
— He took the side 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 “acted stupidly,” even before he knew the details of the case. And in this early incident, Obama planted the seeds of what we’re seeing playing out today against our police when he said during a news conference after Gates’ arrest (but before he knew details), “[T]here’s a long history in this country of African-Americans and Latinos being stopped by law enforcement disproportionately.” The incident shows “how race remains a factor in this society.” [Sure it does, Mr. President, because you have made sure of that, haven’t you?]
— In the Trayvon Martin case – in which a jury exonerated his killer, George Zimmerman – Obama said Martin “could have been me 35 years ago,” once more insinuating that American society in general (and police in particular) are racists.
— Following the killing of a black thug, Michael Brown, in Ferguson, Missouri, Obama again singled out police, claiming 1) that what happened was police “abuse;” and 2) that the alleged abuse “is not an isolated incident.” 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 “hands up, don’t shoot” narrative adopted by the Black Lives Matter movement, which sprang out of Ferguson, was bogus and did not happen.
— After repeat offender Freddie Gray died from self-induced head-bashing inside a police van in Baltimore, Obama once again laid the blame at the feet of police, claiming, “This is not new, and we should not pretend that it’s new.” Translation: Cops kill black men all the time. [By the way, a jury has now found all of the police officers charged in Gray’s death innocent, which – if the liberals who run Baltimore had any integrity – should lead to the dismissal of the racist who brought the charges, Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby.]
— Following the death of Eric Garner, who was resisting arrest for selling cigarettes illegally in New York City, Obama began using the word “racist” to describe police killings of black men. And as usual, he claimed that racial discrimination is “deeply embedded in society.” [Actually it is ‘deeply embedded’ in his administration.]
That’s what we like to call in the news business a pattern of behavior.
What happened to the young white man in Chicago should never happen to anyone, let’s be clear about that. But hate crimes statutes were either implemented to cover all 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.
