Here are 12 thoughtful questions about Baltimore.
This blogger gets frustrated when things don't follow a consistent pattern. To summarize, the civil discord in Baltimore has been orchestrated from on high. The president might not be guilty of inciting riots in the criminal sense of the term but does anyone NOT believe that he could have stopped them anytime he wanted? The passive police, the slow to mobilize National Guard, the silent president, the "give them room to destroy" mayor...everything short of sending SEIU to organize the looters. What is this administration's objective?
Barack Obama is a morally bankrupt soul and he has surrounded himself with his own kind. The shameless exploitation of Trayvon Martin's death--a legally complicated case that was presented in black and white-hispanic terms for political benefit--possibly helped Obama get reelected. In a display of whatever adjective exceeds shameless, the administration actively promoted riots in Ferguson, MO in a desperate attempt to salvage the 2014 midterm elections. They burned down a city and ruined a few careers but the Democrats did not benefit. A crisis, so it seems, was wasted.
Ferguson was the perfect place to riot. Largely black population, largely white police force. White administrators. Black man killed by white cop. Hollywood could not do much better.
Baltimore does not fit the template. This is a predominantly black city, overwhelmingly Democratic for decades, reaping the fruitful bounty of the Great Society. It might not be what the customer wanted but it is what the customer ordered. The waiter, the chef, the dishwasher and the landlord are all Democrats. Why burn down this joint?
We have spent seven years trying to discern the motives of a clandestine administration. In general the White House has shown contempt for middle class, Middle America while getting chummy with anyone and everyone contemptuous of America (Iran, Muslim Brothers, Castro Brothers, illegal immigrants, rioters, Astroturf Occupiers, Bowe Berghdahl....the list goes on and on). So why Baltimore? Why destroy Democrat utopia?
I don't think most people want these questions answered.
