That’s the gist of this Examiner article, which suggests the “usual suspects” are close to adopting a violent model of social change championed by none other than Obama mentor and terrorist Bill Ayers.
In March of this year, Al Sharpton spoke at a Voter ID conference in Missouri… Sharpton concluded that Republicans are trying to take back the achievements of Blacks over the last half century because they don’t like the idea of a Black president. He’s simply fueling the flames of violence, hoping Black Americans will fight.
In March, preaching before an estimated 1,600 people at the Macedonia Missionary Baptist Church in Eatonville, close to the site of the Trayvon Martin shooting, the Rev. Jesse Jackson said the death of Trayvon Martin could be a tragic moment or the beginning of a movement. He continued, “How do we turn pain into power? ….How do we go from a moment to a movement that creates fundamental change?” “If it’s a moment, we go home. If it’s a movement, we go to war.” How does violence help Black Americans?
The author goes on to cite the New Black Panthers and Ayers himself calling for violent revolution. I’m tempted to dismiss these claims outright as hyperbole by extremist malcontents that have uttered similar empty threats for decades.
But that was before we had a President steeped in the same psychology, indoctrinated in radical philosophies, and in league with a toxic mix of various left-wing causes. These see Obama’s support collapsing and suspect that he runs a very strong likelihood and the period between now and November as their last, best chance for “reshaping” America.
It may still very well be hyperbole, but circumstances suggest it would be wise to give their threats more credence than we would under a more patriotic administration.
