The rhetoric from some Members of Congress vindicates the anonymous source who predicted that Barack H. Obama would start a race war. Worse yet, a group that has tied itself to Mr. Obama might now be preparing for exactly that.
The race war question
Earlier in August, an anonymous tipster, saying that he was a White House insider, made an explosive charge. He said that the man now holding office as President, Barack H. Obama, would start a physical race war if he was enough afraid of failing of re-election. (See the source’s interview in three parts.)
Anyone who reads this article, and scrolls down to the Comments section, will see the firestorm of protest that greeted it. In direct answer to that firestorm, this reporter now offers in evidence a list of relevant events that followed that last interview. All those events follow the same theme: open race war.
Representative Maxine Waters (D-CA) fired the first shot. On August 18, the blogger named “Ulsterman” published the third part of his interview with his “insider” source. That same day, Maxine Waters called on Obama to “fight” and “fight hard” against the Republican delegations in Congress.
Two days later she gave this stark explanation of what kind of fighting she was talking about:
As far as I’m concerned — the tea party can go straight to hell.
bring the gangsters in, put them around the table, and let them know that if they don’t come up with loan modifications and keep people in their homes, that they’ve worked so hard for, we’re gonna tax them out of business.
Never mind that the Community Reinvestment Act forced those same banks to make the unwise loans that they made, ever since the Clinton administration.
On Monday evening, Representative André Carson (D-IN) said something more explosive, if that’s possible to imagine. He openly accused members of the Tea Party of conspiracy to commit murder.
Some of them in Congress right now of this tea party movement would love to see you and me—sorry, chamber—hanging on a tree.
Representative Allen West (R-FL) threatened to quit the Congressional Black Caucus if its head did not repudiate Rep. Carson’s remarks.
All of us, especially Congressman Carson, Congresswoman Waters and others who have engaged in racially motivated rhetoric, should follow the example of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., not the example of Reverend Jeremiah Wright.
The New Black Panther Party
This reporter seldom pays attention to such trash talk. This reporter has learned to expect no better from any Democratic member of the Congressional Black Caucus. This reporter especially expects no better from Maxine Waters, a woman who once vowed to nationalize the oil companies, and said so to an executive appearing before her as a witness.
But talk is one thing, and action is another. And from the New Black Panther Party comes a fresh video (see below) that shows that they are preparing for direct action. In it, a uniformed training officer trains adults and children in close combat, including hand-to-hand and with blunt-force weapons, bladed weapons, and firearms. The screen caps and excerpts clearly show that this is not self-defense training. This is training for offense.
Note two things:
- The New Black Panther Party is a uniformed militia, and always has been.
- This is the same group that dispatched three members to block a polling place in Philadelphia and deny entry to white voters registered to vote there. (And the group that Attorney General Eric Holder refused to prosecute.)
The evidence is as conclusive as it is damning: certain elements, in and out of government, actually want to start a race war. To some, such a race war would be rhetorical only—though they little understand the passions they play with. But to others it would be a blood-and-flames physical war.
“Ulsterman”’s “inside” source is correct. And this comes from the putative allies of an administration that promised racial healing. What the country has instead is racial division.
