The saddest truth in politics is that people get the leaders they deserve

Are black leaders promoting violent revolution?

Written By: Bob - May• 12•12

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.

    As I’ve said before, if they want a civil war, bring it on and let’s get it over with. Might be a good opportunity to clean house. Maybe we’d even be able to get a government of citizens again, maybe even a return to a representative republic!

    I’d also like a pony.

      I’d honestly bet a civil war would be short but bloody. There are a lot more angry white guys with guns than any other segment of the population, in fact more angry white guys with guns (and thousands of rounds of ammo) than ALL OTHERS with guns combined.

      I want one of those miniature horses!

    Under a former administrations I’d say its bluff. Under the aegis of the Obama Administration, as repeatedly stated, (and demonstrated), by USAG Eric Holder, I’m of the opinion the rabble rousers – and their sycophants/emulators, emboldened by a lack of Oval Office censure, will continue to stoke the fire beneath the “mass hysteria/racism pot” !

    Violent race riots certainly appears to be Sharpton’s goal, but I think he’s in for a rude awakening even if he gets it. Not just because he’ll lose (nationwide whites outnumber blacks by about 5-1) but because he vastly overestimates just how many black people would stand with him if he actually announced his race war.

    If Obama loses the big cities will burn. If you live in or close to a big city follow the Boy Scouts Motto ” Be Prepared”.

    jesse maybe trying to shore up his position as a major leader of the black community for now, a position he will lose utterly to Obama when the latter returns to private life. It is a last hurrah since he was unsuccessful in castrating him during the campaign, like he said he wanted to do. When O takes over and becomes sole arbiter of the black vote and thus the most powerful democrat in the country for the next 40 years, the best he can hope for is some sort of lackey position. With dignity of course.

    If it looks forgone that Obama will lose,

    You can’t hold an election if there is rioting….

    I don’t think it’s hyperbole at all. I think that’s their goal (Soetoro, Sharpton, Jackson, et al.).

    I say “Let’s roll!” Bring it. It’s not going to end the way they think it will.
