I was wrong: Obama is behind race violence

By Colin Flaherty

I owe a whole lot of people an apology. A real big one.

Soon after I first started writing about black mob violence two years for WND and other places, I started seeing comments about Obama.

A whole lot of people thought he was personally behind efforts to gin up the epidemic of black mob violence I was writing about – and the local and national media ignored.

I kind of brushed it off. No, I did worse than that: I mentally placed all these comments into my “black helicopter international banker kook” file.

The president of the United States personally encouraging racial violence? That struck me as crazy.

Yes, I knew Eric Holder said we were cowards on race. Though it was not until recently I came to fully learn what he meant: He was repeating a classic line from Critical Race Theory that says racism is everywhere. Racism is permanent. And white people are afraid to admit it. There’s the coward thing.

I thought it was strange the president would inject himself into the case of the black Harvard professor “Skip” Gates.

Stranger still when the president said Trayvon could be his son.

And when I saw the video last year (thanks to Breitbart) that showed Obama heaping warm praise on the inventor of Critical Race Theory during a party at Harvard, I thought it was just a bunch of pointy-headed academics with a theory that would never survive off campus.

Wrong again. Critical Race Theory is now taught in hundreds of school districts across the country. They brag how their children and teachers learn about the evils of White Privilege.

Now this week, thanks to the heroes over at Judicial Watch, we learn that the federal government of the United States has been sending community organizers to Florida to ratchet up the pressure to indict and convict George Zimmerman.

The Department of Justice people called themselves “peacekeepers.” As in: No justice, no peace.

I keep reading the documents, and I can scarce believe what I am seeing. The president of the United States is sending people to foment racial violence in Florida.

The liberals assure us that everything the Department of Justice did to help organize and facilitate collective action again the people who were refusing to indict Zimmerman had nothing to do with racial animosity.

The Orlando Sentinel describes it at the time:

When racial tensions flared in Sanford, a league of secretive peacemakers reached out to the city’s spiritual and civic leaders to help cool heated emotions after 17-year-old Trayvon Martin was shot and killed in February.

When civil-rights organizers wanted to demonstrate, these federal workers taught them how to peacefully manage crowds.

They even arranged a police escort for college students to ensure safe passage for their 40-mile march from Daytona Beach to Sanford to demand justice.

As national figures and sign-waving protesters grabbed the spotlight after Trayvon’s death, federal workers from a little-known branch of the Department of Justice labored away behind the scenes, quietly brokering deals between the city officials and residents to help prevent violence and lay the groundwork for peace.

Like using the IRS to target the tea party, abandoning Americans in Benghazi and now sending “secretive” community organizers to orchestrate demonstrations and help build this case into the most racially charged trial since Rodney King, the Obama crew is once again pleading with us to answer the following question the right way:

Who are you going to believe: us, or your own lying eyes?

Washington, D.C., psychologist Lorraine Land calls it “gas lighting.” She writes about it at my blog at WhiteGirlBleedaLot.com. Gaslighting is a:

a form of psychological abuse that causes its intended victim to begin to question his or her own reality. The objectives of the gas lighting perpetrated by the Critical Race Theory proponents are as follows:

1) to discredit victims of racial violence … “Its all your fault. Nothing happened to you.”

2) to demoralize the victims: “it’s all your fault because of white privilege.”

3) to free black teens of responsibility, “its not your fault, you are underprivileged.” Hence infantilizing them.

4) to create a cohort of “willing victims” to continue to be part of the cycle of abuse and part of the “gas lighting” phenomenon.

Dr. Land reminded me gas lighting has been the plot of several books, movies and TV shows. In the book “1984,” Winston Smith was tortured until he agreed his captor held five fingers before him, when there were only four. Jean Luc Picard of the Starship Enterprise went through the same thing at the hands of the evil Cardassians.

Obama’s secretive peacekeepers failed in their stated mission. In “White Girl Bleed a Lot: The return of racial violence and how the media ignore it,” I documented more than a dozen cases of black mob violence connected to Trayvon Martin in the run up to the indictment of George Zimmerman.

Today, all over the country, police departments are on alert for the violence that could follow Zimmerman’s acquittal.

Like Winston Smith, we are now supposed to believe something that is transparently not true. They had nothing to do with the black resentment and animosity and violence connected to this case. And others.

Just like I believed last year when I refused to consider the depths of ignorance and malice this president would drag this country into.

Sorry about that, everyone.
