Congressional staffers protesting with the "Hands up, don't shoot" lie.
"Peter" has some thoughts on victimization.
Failing in an endeavor – education, employment, etc. – some people also fail to accurately identify the cause of the failure. Their ego wants to cast the blame on others, with logic being absent from the analysis. Others will blame race, politics, cultural biases or, in a broad sense, the government.
This is particularly true with many blacks because of cultural biases. They have high unemployment, high crime rates in their neighborhoods, high incarceration rates and high recidivism. Over the many decades since the enactment of the Civil Rights Act many have honed an illogical self-perception of victimization and cultural disenfranchisement to shield them from accountability. Government is perceived to be the cause and eventual cure for all their failures.
In government the rubber meets the road in thousands of police and sheriff’s departments across the nation. Law enforcement is a lightning rod for such misperceptions and biases. Gangs become organizations egged on by educated political charlatans like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton. The old Black Panthers of the 1960s and 70s have re-emerged as the New Black Panthers. Black Lives Matter is another trouble making organization, whose conception was born of a complete lie. But the lie is ignored and their mantra remains “Hands up. Don’t shoot.” For months after the lie was exposed we saw black politicians, athletes and celebrities marching in protest after protest chanting their lie. It’s as if truth doesn’t matter anymore. PC trumps truth. This strategy of repeating lies until they are believed has even muddled the mind of the Director of the FBI. HRC lied about her emails so blatantly and so often that when Director Comey laid out incontrovertible proof of her lies and crimes, those lies caused a moment of cognitive dissonance and sh was let off the hook.
Obama has been criticized for not naming Islamic terrorism as our enemy. We have just as bad-ass of an enemy in these black militant groups. They want pride and a chance at the American dream, but they’re not willing to pay the price necessary to get it. Study, work, self respect and respect for others will dissolve your self-perceived victimhood and open doors to opportunities. But so many don’t want to put in the effort. It’s easier to let the government take care of you, especially now that the current government is handing out goodies for democratic votes and standing behind every whining black organization and standing against our police and the truth. Here’s the hard truth nobody wants to hear: A hundred times more blacks are murdered by other blacks than are shot by police.
If we can call on Obama to name the enemy of Islamic terrorism, then we must call on ourselves to name the enemy that is political correctness. We must eliminate it from our culture and once again speak the truth without fear of stigma or retribution for exercising our First Amendment rights.
