'A Nation of Cowards' Indeed

Obama administration attorney general Eric Holder, who is black, said on February 18, 2009, that America is a “nation of cowards” on the issue of race.


Holder apparently believes that we somehow have not addressed our racial divide when in fact the subject has been rammed down America’s throat every single hour of every single day over the last 50 years, and always from only one perspective – the black perspective, that blacks are only the victims of crime and discrimination, and never the perpetrators. 


If only it were so…


Holder even added that most Americans in their free time are still segregated inside what he called “race-protected cocoons.” He said that “Saturdays and Sundays, America in the year 2009 does not in some ways differ significantly from the country that existed almost 50 years ago. This is truly sad.”


Thus Holder even disagrees with our freedom to associate with whomever we wish, which is one of the essential bases of our liberty.


This hot racial rhetoric comes from an administration that was predicted to be ‘post racial’ but in fact is steeped in every hyper nuance of racial grievance, even from the ramparts of the Justice Department. Even from an attorney general whose father immigrated from Barbados in 1916, in that era long before all the ‘civil rights’ laws were enacted, often over the objection of Democrats like Robert Byrd, the late US senator from West Virginia. Apparently Holder’s father was not so terrified by bogeyman America that he came here and succeeded in a nation that his super-successful son now maligns.  


Holder’s Department of Justice now has dismissed United States v. New Black Panther Party, et al., a case not of suggested or alleged voter intimidation, but of videotaped intimidation by a New Black Panther party member King Samir Shabazz and one other NBP member who were seen clad in paramilitary uniforms, standing in front of a polling place in Philadelphia, Pa., holding batons on election day November 4, 2008 in a blatant show of threats against white voters.


Shabazz can be seen on a separate videotape shouting, “I hate white people. All of them. Every last iota of a cracker I hate him…white, dirty cracker whores…you’re going to have to kill some crackers. You’re going to have to kill some of their babies.”


Now just imagine the Bush Justice Department dropping charges of voter intimidation by a white supremacist who said that he hated black people. Of course, the media would go nuts, which they are clearly are not doing here. So indeed we may very well be “a nation of cowards” – cowards like Holder who never will contravene the black-power agenda in which Americans with dark skin are only victims and never perpetrators of wrongdoing.


Is the speech of Shabazz protected under the 1st Amendment?


Of course it is. And conservatives would speak most vociferously for such freedom. Yet lefty cowards like Holder are the ones who always are seeking to single out certain sentences for prosecution as “hate speech”. But only, apparently, when they are uttered by certain people – like white people. 


Shabazz’s quote, however, is much more dangerous than most garden varieties of so-called ‘hate speech’. Because we know that there are millions of young black thugs who take such taunts seriously and have used them millions of times over the years, and will continue to use them over and over as the justification for assaults on and murders of white people.


And where is the charge of “hate speech” now that a black has uttered it?


It is nowhere to be found. And by the way, blacks have a much higher rate of ‘hate crimes’ prosecutions than white people do.


Meanwhile here is a quote from Obama on July 4, 2010:


“We celebrate the principles that are timeless, tenets first declared by men of property and wealth but which gave rise to what Lincoln called a new birth of freedom in America—civil rights and voting rights, workers’ rights and women’s rights, and the rights of every American. And on this day that is uniquely American we are reminded that our Declaration, our example, made us a beacon to the world.”


Thus Obama cannot make a simple patriotic speech without some racial/economic tease interwoven into it like “tenets first declared by men of property and wealth”. How about “men of vision and scholarship”? How about “men of property and wealth who risked it all for freedom”?


No, that would not be confrontational enough for Obama’s agenda. Yet those great men indeed sacrificed everything for freedom, and obviously were infinitely more interested in justice and peace than a violence-prone racist like Shabazz, whom Obama’s Justice Department has, de facto, shielded.


Then Obama adds in the very same sentence – after all, the Fourth of July is too good a holiday to waste without scoring every political point possible – that “a new birth of freedom in America” includes “civil rights and voting rights, workers’ rights and women’s rights…”


This is Obama purposely misconstruing our Constitution for dumbed-down America. Because these are not the rights that the Founders fought and died for but rather these are political rights that flow naturally from the basic genius of our Constitutional system.


To a liberal, however, unless a ‘right’ is specifically stated, it needs to be codified in law, which is why leftists always are on the prowl to remake the Constitution and to pass thousands of laws to cover every eventuality. Yet when an actual voting law is broken  by a member of a protected Democrat group like Shabazz, Obama and his DOJ look the other way.


In truth everything this president does has an agenda behind it. While conservatives do what is best for the nation, liberals do only what serves their agenda. So when Obama’s NASA administrator Charles Bolden said in a recent interview that his “foremost” mission as the head of America‘s space exploration agency was to improve relations with the Muslim world, it should have raised more alarm bells.


In an interview with Al Jazeera, the Middle Eastern Arabic TV network, Bolden said, “When I became the NASA administrator — or before I became the NASA administrator — he (Obama) charged me with three things. One was he wanted me to help re-inspire children to want to get into science and math, he wanted me to expand our international relationships, and third, and perhaps foremost, he wanted me to find a way to reach out to the Muslim world and engage much more with dominantly Muslim nations to help them feel good about their historic contribution to science … and math and engineering.”


Look at that political pap – “to help them feel good about their historic contribution to science and math and engineering.”


Why is it the duty of an American space agency official to make Muslims feel good about themselves? So they will stop being mean to us?


It is not his duty. This is pure racial politics. And neither is it the duty of the attorney general to make gross generalizations and slanders about America, or to let voting law violations go unpunished on account of the color of the skin of the perpetrator.


But then again, this is the Obama administration that sees one of the lowest characters in America like racist Shabazz worthy of protection from prosecution. And white people as mere targets in a racially-charged world that Obama continues to provoke with his ill-conceived, biased and ignorant observations of reality.
