I swear, it's like the conservatives want race riots to happen. Like they're itching for it.
 
2013-07-11 08:58:26 AM
And our president, who instigated this mess, is floating above it all, having moved on to other things.  Will Obama speak out to avert the racial violence he set in motion?  Unless he sees some political advantage, the answer is no.

I really like starting the day with a cup of coffee with a double shot of WTF?!

I'm pretty sure some of them are.

This is probably some ludicrous Republican attempt to draw a comparison to Trayvon Martin and Obama, because you know, they are both black males who smoked marijuana. I wish I wasn't kidding.

Is Zimmerman a scandal yet?

True, but some of them have been pitching all-out race WAR, so riots fit in quite nicely.

Martin was killed because he knew too much about Benghazi.  Fact.

Good. I can't wait to kill me some crackers, as soon as I find out what a cracker is.

Technically I believe it's called BenghaZimmIrsGate.

It's 200,911 times worse than Watergate.

Fortunately, Zimmermansgating was declined.

I've been hearing this from right-wingers for well over 20 years now. They were salivating during the Rodney King riots. That's when my dad bought his bullet reloader kit in anticipation of Bill Clinton drying up all the ammo to prevent white people from shooting black people trying to burn down their neighborhoods. Good times!

As a white guy who has met some black guys let me say this article is spot on. Obama made being black an acceptable option for the general American citizen, and to a few of the more gullible ones, he even made it cool.

Well, from what I've seen the only thing these newly acceptable types want is war, but not just any type of war, they all want lazy war.

Ya see, when white people go to war we pick hard wars, wars where everybody looks the same, where shooting a dirty foreigner took guts cause that dirty foreigner looked just like your cousin Brad.

But not Obama's newly empowered blacks. They are too poorly driven to start a war that takes effort so they take the easy route. 'Start warring on whitey!' they shout because a black could never handle the complex stress of same-race war, that's something only Americanwhites can handle. Ever heard of black on black killing any time recently? Didn't think so.

That being said, even with the total hardcoredness of white people putting in the effort to kill other white people (I mean England and France, you guys really work it, not American Civil War kinda 'it', but ya feel me) I really respect the Japan people even more so. They invaded China and can you imagine all that asianess going at it? I mean I've seen like dozen of Asian dudes in my life but can't be sure it wasn't just one dude at multiple locations trying to mess with me cause man, Asians just look so Asian.

There are a lot of folks out there who will welcome finally just being able to shoot them some folks without any regret or apology. Which is sort of why this case has attracted so much attention. At its heart, it's a tragic tale of kid getting killed, but as a symbol, it comes down to folks who feel threatened, bullied, and afraid so much that they retreat. Never mind that these folks have instigated much of the response. Never mind that they actively seek to "stand up" to folks who seemingly cross invisible lines in the sand that they imagine are readily apparent, and are shocked that folks dare to cross. It comes down to a rationalization of manufactured fear and projection of victimhood that makes all their over-reaction "justified." It isn't about crime, it isn't threat, it's about dreaming of power that they feel is being shifted away, and long for the days when folks knew their place. The whole case is about dreams of glory, and visions of society that never really was, but is romantically placed in very personal shrines inside their own heads.

There are a lot of folks who see the changes in America's demographics, and realize that things are changing. And finally, they are able to claim something the "lucky duckys" have had for years, and that they are being put upon by a world they never made. Finally, they can claim that they are a put upon underclass that is being besieged. They can finally claim victimhood, which is something that minorities and women have had for years, and used against their rigid adherence to a lockstep mentality that was geared towards dominance in the culture, in the home, and in the halls of justice. That it is crumbling means fear. Fear of loss. Fear of power that his shifting. Fear of change. Much like Christians who claim that they are being oppressed. Much like white men who claim that they just want to celebrate their heritage. Much like men who just want things to go back with women shutting the f*ck up and getting them a sandwich and keeping the TV down.

You see it with championing the cause of every asshat who comes down the pike. If'n the Liberals are a fer' it, then they's ag'in it. Never mind that they're championing the cause of someone repugnant and whose behavior flies in the face of any of the morality that they'd like to claim to champion. Because they want to stick it to the folks that they see as causing their downfall. They put faith in symbols more than in looking at each case. They want convenient sides. They want simplicity. My side, and the wrong side. The wrong side are the folks who make them feel icky or uncomfortable. Who might make them think too hard. It is very much a distillation of the "Give me convenience or give me death" mentality that has been driving our politics for some time. Symbols are easier to think about, as opposed to facts. Symbols keep all that thinking away, because you can pile a lot onto a symbol, and put aside that the symbol is naught but a resignation to rage, and it assuages feelings of impotence. It can substitute a lot more than just the topic of the moment. It can hide all the subtext that dealing with facts might uncover.

No matter what the verdict is, folks will take it as a symbol, as opposed to the culmination of a sad chapter that led to the death of a minor. Either way, it will only fuel rage, and it will only hide the subtext of a fair chunk of the nation feeling powerless to stop change from coming, and almost glee at finally getting that lucky ducky status of being a victim, and finally being able to expend that rage on someone.

No matter the verdict, the aftermath isn't going to be pretty, and it will be far from classy, because in the end, the "controversy" surrounding the case has nothing to do with a young man being shot, but being swept up as a symbol for greater rumblings and undercurrents that no one really wants to talk about.

Reminds me of Mitt Romney, when he said he wished Hurricane Sandy never happened.  Not because of all of the death and destruction, but because it made Obama look good.

So now he caused 9/11, personally planned Benghazi, hand-picked and supervised all IRS investigations, goes out every night in a gray jumpsuit and a "Destroy America Now: Ask Me How!" t-shirt to raise gas prices station-by-station and fired the first shot in the Race War.

Say what you will, but the dude gets things done! Except order Osama's death. That was somehow Dubya and Sarah Palin.

My uncle has been preparing for the race riots for 40 years.  If you were wrong every single year, you'd start to get really anxious for something, anything to happen before you die.

It's his version of the Cubs winning the World Series.
