Zimmerman, Alinsky and Obama

7cad362f-08d5-441e-965b-49279964661a_zps7c726495When Barack Obama ran for the presidency five years ago, pundits on both the left and right reassured the country that the election of America’s “first black president” promised to issue forth a new era of interracial harmony.

Some of us, however, knew all too well that this was the kind of stuff that only fools and liars could peddle.  In fact, we predicted that, far from inaugurating a “Post-Racial” America, cries of “racism” were sure to increase if Obama seized the White House. Unfortunately, in retrospect, we appear to have been prescient.

We knew, first of all, that there is indeed such a thing as the Racism-Industrial-Complex (RIC) that is every bit as massive as any other industry.  Ideologically, professionally, and even emotionally, RIC agents are deeply invested in sustaining their narrative of endemic “white racism” and perpetual “black suffering.” The election of a black man to the most visible and potent office on the planet threatens that narrative.

Thus, the cries of “racism” would have to become both more frequent and more extravagant if RIC was to continue to flourish.

Secondly, we also knew that, given his background, racial unity would be the last thing on Obama’s mind.  Quite the contrary: Obama’s lifelong preoccupation with achieving racial “authenticity” and his passion for “community organizing” foretold a presidency that would be accompanied by endless crises—including and especially racial crises.

The acquittal of George Zimmerman in the shooting death of black 17-year-old Trayvon Martin is the latest such crisis that Obama is exploiting for all that it is worth.

Far from using his influence to effect some measure of calm, last Friday, following a week of mayhem in which roving mobs of blacks disrupted cities, destroyed property, and randomly subjected innocent whites and others to violence, the President decided to exacerbate this situation.

It is crucial, Obama maintained, that we—i.e. white folks—understand why blacks share “a sense that if a white male teen was involved in the same kind of scenario” as was Trayvon Martin on the night that he was shot dead by George Zimmerman, “from top to bottom, both the outcome and the aftermath might have been different.”

Blacks suffer “pain” over the Zimmerman verdict because they are “looking at this issue through a set of experiences and a history that doesn’t go away.”  But this past is very much alive in the present, according to Obama, for to this day, black men continue to fall prey to the sinister machinations of wicked white racial profilers.  Moreover, even Obama himself isn’t safe from this virulent white “racism.”

Most black men, including Obama, have “had the experience of being followed while shopping in a department store.” Most black men, including Obama, share “the experience of walking across the street and hearing the locks click on the doors of cars.” Most black men, including Obama, have “had the experience of getting on an elevator” and seeing “a woman clutching her purse nervously and holding her breath until she had a chance to get off.”

Ironically, immediately upon lamenting the ugliness of this racial profiling, Obama unwittingly acknowledges its reasonableness, for he assures us that blacks have no delusions concerning “the disproportionately” high rates of black criminality and the fact that “they’re disproportionately both perpetrators and victims of violence.” Yet even this, he is quick to observe, “is born out of a very violent past in this country[.]”

In other words, while blacks do indeed act more violently than others, this too is because of the oppressive “racist” treatment to which whites have traditionally subjected them.

To the intimidation and wanton cruelty in which the anti-Zimmerman forces have engaged in the aftermath of Zimmerman’s acquittal, Obama spoke not a word except to caution them against “dishonoring” the memory of Trayvon Martin.

So, why did Obama insert himself in this case in the first place?  Why has he chosen to fan the flames of an already combustible situation and all but justify even the violence that has been done to innocent person and property?

Answer: Obama is first and always a “community organizer”—a community agitator. 

As the Godfather of community agitating, Saul Alinksy, wrote, the agitator should always seek to “cause confusion, fear,” “to agitate to the point of conflict,” and “stir up dissatisfaction and discontent.” The agitator “begins his ‘trouble making’ by stirring up these angers, frustrations, and resentments, and highlighting specific issues or grievances that heighten controversy.” He also “dramatizes the injustices[.]”

The agitator has but one objective: the construction of a “mass power base of what he calls the army.”

Obama most definitely does not want interracial harmony in America.  He never did.  He wants—he needs—mutual antagonism between the races.  It is in his interest, as well as that of his party, for the members of his black base to be ruled by an “us versus them” mentality when it comes to race relations.

This is why Obama has fueled the persecution of George Zimmerman and the Brown Shirt tactics of the black mobs that have taken to the streets courtesy of the inspiration of the Jesse Jacksons, Al Sharptons, Eric Holders, and, yes, Obamas of the world.

And this is why, politically, the acquittal of Zimmerman was a win for Obama.

    He is a great pretender, a charlatan, a storyteller, an ambitious narcissist. Unable to transcend on greatness, unity and inclusiveness, he is a constant practitioner of deception, divisiveness and extortion.

    He has no ability to feel empathy to anyone, too greedy and self centered he can not help anyone, nor lead to improvement he ignore harmony and can’t emerge from his poisoned cocoon without his sting ready to strike.

    Driven by an obsessive, destructive path he will crash against the lights, like a nocturnal moth, time and time again until get broken but dragging all he can with him…

    This president is not a leader, only a great divider, our small community organizer in constant playing his role… seems finally everyone got enough.

  • mtnhikerdude

    It is beyond my logic on how he got a second term.

    • Harry Black

      He got a second term because the majority of Americans don’t share FP’s paranoia, it’s prejudices, or it’s obsessive hatred of the prez. As the last election demonstrated, the politics of demonization don’t work.

      • mtnhikerdude

        He got a second term , because as Limbaugh summed it up in one sentence “They voted for Santa Claus”.

      • glpage

        Quite to the contrary, the last election showed very well that the politics of demonization do work. Obama and his supporters did a wonderful job of demonizing Romney, productive workers, non-union workers, upper middle to upper class tax payers, and in general anyone who does not agree with him. Anyone who disagreed with Obama and his policies was labeled a racist, which is probably the best example of the politics of demonization.

        personally I think there had been a lot more voter fraud than we give the credit for. No one in their right mind would vote for obummer twice.

    Obama style populism is typical of petit bourgeois tactics. See http://clarespark.com/2012/12/01/petit-bourgeois-radicalism-and-obama/. Their black Jesus has dreadlocks. “Petit bourgeois radicalism and Obama.” The separatist tactics were not of their own making, though, but sponsored by the white liberal establishment that seeks “stability” and “cohesion” through identify politics.

    “Answer: Obama is first and always a “community organizer”—a community agitator”

    Therein lies the problem. Democracy = Mob Rule (Think: 2 foxes and a chicken voting on what’s for lunch).

    That’s why America’s founders provided us with a Constitutionally-established Federal Republic to protect the rights of all- Even if they weren’t current practitioners of equal rights themselves.

    Obama and his Alinsky-worshipping mavens WANT MOB RULE (otherwise they would accept the jury’s verdict) CHAOS and ANARCHY. Then, like Germany’s Brown Shirts, they can provide the AmeriCorp solution. Start the fire, fan the fire, suppress the flames. Its already been proven successful.

    Pres. Obama is a total what, insert epithet here. Too bad, he got elected twice in a row, and is here to stay for years, and has Da Powah, and we don’t. Worse, the Republicans seem to be about to give away the White House to another Democrat in 2016. It’s bad, but then, the era of Dubya Bush was a disaster too. Apparently there isn’t an honest politician left in the house. So why do I think that the U.S. is going to survive and prosper anyway? Because the real powah is still in the hands of you and me. Take my free online course on U.S. history to appreciate how cool it is at my Historyscoper web site and don’t worry so much :)

    “Moreover, even Obama himself isn’t safe from this virulent white “racism.”

    Congratulations and a thank you are in order Jack! I missed this completely. It makes eminent sense that Obama would want to present himself as a ‘victim’ of white racism with all of the various scandals being investigated about his regime.

    He really doesn’t get it! That criticism and dissent aimed at his policies and agenda have NOTHING to do with his SKIN COLOR but with basic philosophical, ethical, moral, economic and religious disagreements. Instead of having to address, specifically, the objections and disapproval of his policies it requires far less effort to denounce them with a blanket generalization that they are nothing more than an expression of white racism. He really is a lazy intellectual who resorts to demagoguery instead of reason, sound argumentation and facts.

    But he also disguises his resentment and animosity masterfully, using words which divert attention from his personal deficiencies and short-comings to those of his opponents – white racists.

    “And this is why, politically, the acquittal of Zimmerman was a win for Obama.”

    Perhaps the Obama crowd was hoping for an acquittal all along, realizing that it would empower them to denounce white racism, to restate the grievances of blacks, to elicit guilt from white people, to stoke the resentments and hostility of black Americans towards whites in order to keep them in the Democratic Plantation. In addition, the incident could be used to justify the imposition of more stringent gun control measures. Yes, acquittal was a win for Obama.

    • lyndaaquarius

      what proof that white guilt increased? What”stringent gun control measures ” have been imposed?

    Interesting article, but underlying it is the premise that good race relations is possible in the USA. This (arguably noble) premise betrays that the author shares with the Left the notion that there is a better world possible, if only we make the hard decisions today.

    Reality though, is otherwise. There is no endpoint to history, and changing demography has always caused upheaval. The notion that better race relation is at all possible in a country undergoing demographic inversion is not only naive, it is similar to the Left’s belief that “minorities” are naturally leftwing Americans wanting to be freed from oppression.

    With the changing demography there will be a new ruling class who will be adherents to a different ideology, more likely anti-colonialism, or something similar to black consciousness, or even Chavez-style socialism. This is somewhat ironic, as aging Americans are still fighting an ideological war defined and fractured along European philosophies, when demography has already shifted the center of America to be of a very different culture.

    It is in fact easy to predic some social trends in the US. For example the death of mainline Protestantism in the US and the further entrenchment of Catholism as the major American religion. The permanence and intensification of AA. Then more policies to force the economic and social integration of racially segregated neighbourboods, by redrawing county boundaries, and so on. There will certainly be more friction between minority groups, and frequently whites will be blamed for that.

    However this turns out, Americans of Northern European ancestry will in the next generation come to terms with dhimmitude, not under a Caliphate, but instead under a new demographic arrangment. Note that I say that they will come to terms with this, as there is no other option.

      not so sure about your predictions. Leftism is on the decline. For many reasons,it no longer can grow under the radar screen. Most of its wins will be reversed. Anyway,this is all conjecture. The 2014 elections will tell the tale.
