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

Obama’s sons of anarchy

Written By: Bob - Apr• 01•13

There are three things to note in this story about a large group of youths, and how they spent a beautiful spring day in Chicago on Saturday:

  1. What the media reported.
  2. What actually happened.
  3. What people said in the comments of the story in response to what actually happened and how it was reported.

The media report from CBS 2 in Chicago was Orwellian in its attempt to spin the events as merely youthful hijinks perpetrated by featureless, restless beings of adolescent nature:

The warmest day of the year so far brings hundreds of mischievous teens to Michigan Avenue. Police are calling it “mob action.”

CBS 2 is learning about multiple incidents in at least four different locations along the Magnificent Mile and in the Gold Coast, yielding a slew of arrests.

Many innocent shoppers and tourists became caught in the middle of a very chaotic situation. Hundreds of teens littered Michigan Avenue and State Street near Chicago.

“You had a group of teens, close to maybe 500. They assaulted a Chicago police officer that was mounted on a horse and all of a sudden they assaulted a citizen walking the streets, just a normal citizen shopping and enjoying the weather,” said Holmes.

The CBS reporter of this story, Courtney Gousman, did everything she possibly could to portray the events in Chicago on Saturday as some sort of playful excess of youthful enthusiasm, just a bunch of “mischievous teens” out having good clean fun… perhaps something like this.

Of course, that isn’t remotely what occurred, and Gousman and everyone else in Chicago know what really happened beyond the coded speech. The Chicago Police Department correctly identified the incident a riot, and the crowd sentiment was probably quite a bit closer to this than Hello, Dolly!

What actually happened was that a mob of black thugs took part in an apparently pre-planned attack on mostly white shoppers in a mostly white and wealthy neighborhood.

Let’s be perfectly clear; as far as riots go, this wasn’t the most violent, and the injuries, property destruction and looting reported appears to have been comparatively minimal by Chicago standards (no one died, nothing was burned out/down, stores weren’t cleaned out, arrests were generally misdemeanors, etc). Those facts allowed, it was a race riot, and it was intentionally downplayed by the fig leaf of a black reporter, working for a liberal new organization, attempting to cover for a liberal mayor, who is reaping the whirlwind of decades of liberal misrule, neglect, and failed social engineering.

Chicago Democrats have created (and continue to increase the volatility of) a toxic stew of racialism, hopelessness, entitlement, and anger. Barack Obama not only continued this dangerous trend in his time in Chicago, he has expanded it nationwide, and accelerated it. A man of two races who chose long ago to identify as one, he has failed not just both races, but all, becoming the most racially divisive President in modern American history, entirely by willful choice.

The result of this festering cesspool of racism that is Chicago is the in-kind blowback in the comments of the story. The words are pure hate, but what drives such visceral hatred being so openly displayed?

And it gets worse:

And stays vicious:

Picture 1

The steeping hostility between various social, economic, political and racial groups seems on the verge of rising to a boil just months into President Obama’s second term, and it frequently feels that decades of attempted racial reconciliation could be undone by this one Presidency.

Barack Obama and his 2008 campaign promises of “hope” and “change” not only seem empty these days, they seem like punchlines to jokes about us (the American people) that we were never supposed to figure out.

  1. Need a justifiable intervention of a real crisis and there’s not one to be found? You turn the heat up.

    Obama is doing what I would do if I were he and had his agenda: keep things simmering until all my field ops were in place. Turn the heat up and make people self-identify. Send in the hate police to neighborhoods in the suburbs. Set a few examples, send a message. Tamp it down just to let it simmer up again, angrier the next time. You get the idea.

    There were patriots in this country once who realized if you supported those who purported tyranny you ended up on a rail.

    Is there any difference between the traitors of old and many in our media today?

    Maybe when there are real consequences for one’s actions then people realize the importance of what they do.

    Death before slavery!

    It was a race riot. And we’ll probably have one here in Chicago every weekend until it gets cold again.

    We’re racist for noticing. So avert your eyes this summer as thousands of unemployable “teenagers” continue invading the middle and upperclass enclaves within a bus ride of their dwellings. Chicago, St. Louis, Detroit, Atlanta, etc. LA is emptying of blacks and whites so maybe not there…

    Obama’s Sons of Anarchy Loot Through the Long Hot Summer…or, “guess what we did on your summer vacation, dad”…

    Hey, maybe he could bring a few to Martha’s Vineyard with his happy family.

    This is the small, dry-run version of what Obama’s “micro-targeting” campaign machine was set up to do: one text/twitter/email, and a million monkeys fly.

    Since the race of the 400-500 (!) attackers was PLANNED as well as the race of those attacked, this was not a riot, nor a “Black-On-White (Hate) Crime”; this was a DECLARATION OF RACE WAR.

  8. rumcrook™ says:

    what does anyone expect when vitriolic hate is spewed at white people for being white and it has been institutionalized that white people are bad and evil, every other news article has a leftard screaming racism at anyone that opposes their political social desires and plans and the most extreme of these call for the killing of white babies, black panthers anyone? so when an angry uncivilized youth robs a women sees a white baby and shoots it in the face are we really surprised it happened? Obama sits through an easter sermon that attacks white people and conservatives and its no problem, universities are trying to convince white kids at thier place of “higher learning” that they should be ashamed because they are white and feel bad for being white. they live the life of white priveledge, a destructive political party with a destructive hateful president at its head cant function without demonizing someone and white people are it.

    so at some point this will boil over its just a matter of when.

    as for me, black people that live out near me are escapees who just want a better life for themselves, Ithink of them and treat them no differently than anyone else. but the inner cities are leftist democrat plantations and I wouldnt go near them or treat them with the benefit of the doubt for all the money in the world.

    I have had to be in major metro areas with majority black people working at fast food and stores and have experienced the barely covered hate and anger towards me. any excuse for it to get out of control will be taken and I expect this summer to be very very dangerous near major metro areas.

    this was just a taste of how bad it will be this year.

    to put it more succinctly some one tell me why it wont boil over. tell me why im wrong. tell me its nonsense and everything is a-ok. make that case, becuase I dont see how that case can be made at all.

    When you have a group of people who promote the type of culture portrayed in this video:

    …lawlessness, pretend shooting, gang signs, flipping the bird, etc. along with the actual “lyrics” about shooting cops, doing drugs, ad nauseaum….you end up with the type of behavior exhibited by the “teen youths” in Chicago. They are becoming fearless, knowing the law will do little to them IF they happen to get caught. And this video is just one of THOUSANDS spewing this propaganda poison out there to the gullible, uneducated masses who think the money will continue flowing unimpeded forever. They are in for a rude awakening when the majority population finally wakes up. As a member of that still-majority population, I am preparing for things to come. Are you?

  11. Orion says:

    Out of idle curiosity, what would happen if a group of 500 WHITE ‘youths’ mischievously went into a black neighborhood and beat, robbed, and raped the folks living there, and stole from various businesses.

    I wonder how THAT would be reported by the media….An interesting thought experiment, no?

      oh I think we could imagine that, it might look a little like this, special prosecutors, dour looking men coming to a podium to answer questions from a frantic breathless press asking how the white devils were going to be prosecuted.

      time magazine covers breathlessly asking the concern troll question why are white people such horrible dangerous racists and how are we going to “re-educate them some more, and if they wont allow themselves to be re-educated what to do with them then.

      maybe a beer summit and a god damn america sermon or two…..

  12. rumcrook™ says:

    I suspect that if the economy stays in the toilet gentrified city neighborhoods filled with upperclass white libtards who like to fawn over how they helped “turn” thier little inner city oasis neighborhood around and raise property values will find this summer will have a very disturbing wake up call.

    I find it very interesting and dramatic but inconsequential to my life.

  13. westie says:

    Looks like the Chicago Mayor and his idiot Popo Chief will need another plan as things will get very sticky amongst the local tribes this summer.

  14. harbinger says:

    Most of what you write is true, however a couple points, if I may.

    “who is reaping the whirlwind of decades of liberal misrule, neglect, and failed social engineering.”

    -The social engineering has not failed. It has accomplished exactly what the Marxist Revolutionaries that put it in place wanted to accomplish, that it not failure.

    “and it frequently feels that decades of attempted racial reconciliation could be undone by this one Presidency.”

    -Racial reconciliation was given up 40 years ago. In it’s place is a system that keeps slaves on the welfare plantation, all the time inciting them to violence.

    The situation we are in is not an unintended consequence, it was the plan all along. Nothing is being undone at this point, it is being advanced, and possible, concluded.
