NBA’s LeBron James Tweets Threat, “Doxing” Police Officer Who Shot Girl Attacking Another Girl With a Knife

FoxNews.com reports that

Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James is facing intense backlash over a now-deleted tweet targeting a Columbus police officer involved in the shooting of 16-year-old Ma’Khia Bryant.

Bodycam footage released late Tuesday showed Bryant being shot as she was attacking another Black teen with a knife.

However, like many other public figures, James suggested that the Columbus shooting was unjustified coming on the heels of the conviction of former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin on murder and manslaughter charges in the death of George Floyd.

“YOU’RE NEXT #ACCOUNTABILITY,” the NBA icon wrote with an hourglass emoji over an image of one of the officers at the scene of Bryant’s shooting.

James was accused by critics of leveraging his massive Twitter following to target the officer.

“Lebron James is inciting violence against an Ohio police officer. This is disgraceful and dangerous. Is the NBA okay with this? Is Twitter?” Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark. asked.

“On behalf of pro athletes, current and former, I apologize for how #LeBronJames just showed his inner Maxine Waters and made a very real, ongoing threat to the life of the officer who quickly acted to prevent a knife attack from becoming worse. Many of us appreciate what LEOs do!” former Major League Baseball player Lenny Dykstra wrote.

“LeBron James doxes [sic] police officer who saved a teenage girl from being stabbed to death, demands officer be held accountable, sets new record for athlete stupidity,” OutKick founder Clay Travis tweeted.

“Reported threatening violence,” journalist Emily Miller wrote, flagging the tweet to Twitter.

“That cop did nothing wrong by any reasonable standard, and now someone with 50 million followers is encouraging attacks against him,” conservative writer A.G. Hamilton said. “That’s on top [of] countless news organizations lying about his actions. Decent people need to speak out. Real people will get hurt by this stuff.”

James returned to Twitter to explain the “ANGER” he felt when sending that tweet.

“ANGER does any of us any good and that includes myself!” James tweeted. “Gathering all the facts and educating does though! My anger still is here for what happened that lil girl. My sympathy for her family and may justice prevail!”

He added, “I’m so damn tired of seeing Black people killed by police. I took the tweet down because its being used to create more hate -This isn’t about one officer. it’s about the entire system and they always use our words to create more racism. I am so desperate for more ACCOUNTABILITY.”

James is one of several public figures and media outlets who have downplayed the fact that Bryant was attacking someone when she was shot.

Former Obama aide Valerie Jarrett claimed the police officer had shot Bryant “in order to break up a knife fight.”

Other tweets, including missives from The New York Times and The Washington Post, completely omitted any reference to the knife Bryant was holding at the time of the shooting.

People have lost their minds.

That police officer did his job.

He saved that other girl’s life.

Please allow me to make a confession. It has been quite a few years since I was a serious NBA Fan. I’ve kept up from afar, just so I could engage in Water Cooler Talk at work. However, until “wokeness” and the Chinese Coronavirus happened, I enjoyed college basketball infinitely more than I did the professional product.

I suppose that it is because of my rather youthful age of 62 and having grown up during some of the greatest times in the history of sports.

In the NBA, I can remember the Knicks, Celtics, Lakers, and Pistons playing hurt and leaving everything that they had out there on the court.

I am also a lifelong Memphis State/University of Memphis Tiger Basketball Fan.

There is a reason for that…

The year is 1972.  A skinny, undersized asthmatic kid, new to Wooddale Junior High, in Memphis, Tennessee, is about to be annihilated in a game called Bombardment, a rather sadistic game thought up by the 9th grade P.E. coach for his personal amusement.

Resembling the movie “Dodgeball” on steroids,  two teams (usually the delinquents on one side and their victims on the other), would line up against both sides of the bleachers waiting for the coach’s whistle. Then, the massacre would ensue.

Sure that I was about to breathe my last, I felt a hand on my shoulder, and a kind voice telling me to stand beside him. I looked up to see the smiling face of Larry Finch, Senior shooting guard on the Memphis State University Tigers Basketball Team.  He had just taken an Internship at my school!

Of course, that was the school year that they lost the NCAA Championship to Bill Walton and the UCLA Bruins. I don’t think that anyone in the nation hollered at their television set louder that night than I did.

Over the semester, we became friends.  I became a Tiger fan for life, eventually receiving my degree there  in 1980 in Radio, TV, and Film.  While there, I had the privilege of calling radio play-by-play for the Women’s Basketball and Men’s Baseball teams.

Larry is also the reason that I went on to play and coach basketball, a 4th grade team and a church team, respectively.  My coaching record is 24 – 5.

But, I digress…

The reason that I drifted away from being a big fan of the NBA is that they drifted away from me.

As an average American, living here in the Heartland, I still believe in Traditional American Values, such as Faith, Hard Work, Loyalty, Gratitude, and Respect.

The recent actions and words being seen and heard coming from the outrageously paid professional athletes of the NFL, the NBA, and now, Major League Baseball, are not the words and actions of “professionals”. Rather, they are the whining, screaming, and lashing out of cry-baby millionaires, who neither respect their fan base, nor those who have made their path to fame and fortune possible through the shedding of their blood for the flag and country which they are so intent on insulting and diminishing.

And now, this “professional” who is extravagantly paid for playing a game that you can watch being played in playgrounds and gymnasiums across the country just threatened and “doxxed” a policeman who did his duty and saved a life.

Oh, sure.

James and the rest of the professional athletes always tell us that it is because of “racial injustice” that they are disrespecting America and all that it stands for along with the sacrifices made by those who comprise the “Thin Blue Line”. However, if that was their concern, why have these multi-millionaires waited until the last few years to voice their concern and why didn’t they put their money where their big mouths are and do something about it a long, long time ago?

Well, listen up, you ungrateful overpaid pampered pu…err wussified excuses for professional athletes.

You cry-babies offend US!!!

By “us”, I am referring to average Americans just like me, who are out here killing ourselves in our 40-plus hour a week jobs, just to make it from paycheck-to-paycheck, including those of us who actually still attend your games, shell out our hard-earned cash, just to see you disrespect our flag, and our Law Enforcement Officers who put their lines on the line to protect us, while you sleepwalk your way through games on your way to collect your millions.

LeBron James and those who run their big mouths like you do are misanthropic ungrateful jackasses, who are not worthy to lace up the tennis shoes of those who have gone before you in your chosen field of athletic endeavor.

Those American Athletes knew whom they were playing for and who paid their salaries. And, they also had the sense to keep their mouths shut.

They knew that young boys followed their every word and action, idolizing them as sports heroes. And, the overwhelming majority of professional athletes back in the day, took that very seriously.

You guys do not seem to take anything seriously…except your own notoriety and your enormous paycheck.

So, LeBron and the rest of you “disenfranchised” millionaires…

As you watch your popularity, the fans in the stands, and your undeserved paychecks dwindling before your eyes…just remember:

Pride goeth before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall. – Proverbs 16:18 (KJV)

If you keep running off at the mouth and commit mass seppuku…then perhaps Shaq can get you a job with Papa John’s Pizza…delivering.

But hey…that’s the way the ball bounces.

So…

Knife Found on Floorboard of Blake’s Car as NBA and MLB Cancel Games to Virtue Signal. Is this 2020’s “Hands Up…Don’t Shoot”?

kenoshariots

https://twitter.com/JesseKellyDC/status/1298775550513868800?s=20

FoxNews.com reports that

Jacob Blake had a knife on the floorboard of his car when he was shot by police, said the Wisconsin Department of Justice, which also has identified the officer who shot him as Rusten Sheskey.

The knife was recovered from the driver’s side of Blake’s SUV, the agency said. It did not say whether Blake was holding the knife when Sheskey, a seven-year veteran of the Kenosha Police Department, shot him Sunday evening.

Blake, 29, admitted to having the knife during the investigation, officials said. No other weapons were recovered.

According to a Wisconsin DOJ news release, officers responded to a domestic dispute after a woman reported her boyfriend was unlawfully on the premises. Officers attempted to arrest Blake and a Taser was used, but it did not subdue him, authorities said.

As Blake walked around to the driver’s side of the SUV, he opened the door and leaned forward into the vehicle. Sheskey held onto Blake’s shirt and fired seven times, striking him in the back. No other officer opened fire.

Officers were not equipped with body cameras, despite city leaders unanimously approving a plan in 2017 to purchase the devices in an effort to increase transparency and police accountability.

Lawyers for Blake’s family said Tuesday he was paralyzed from the shooting.

“They shot my son seven times, seven times, like he didn’t matter,” said Jacob Blake Sr., who spoke to reporters alongside other family members and lawyers outside the Kenosha County courthouse. “But my son matters. He’s a human being and he matters.”

The Justice Department announced Wednesday it will conduct a civil rights investigation. The FBI will lead the inquiry with assistance from the Wisconsin Division of Criminal Investigation and other state authorities.

Anger over the shooting spilled onto the streets of Kenosha in the days since, resulting in violent clashes between demonstrators and police, along with looting and vandalism.

Two people were killed Tuesday and another was wounded in Kenosha amid more chaotic gatherings. On Wednesday, Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers ordered 500 National Guard members to the city to quell more potential unrest.

Athletes have also weighed in on the events surrounding the police shooting. The Milwaukee Bucks opted to boycott Game 5 of its NBA playoffs series against the Orlando Magic Wednesday. In a show of solidarity, the Milwaukee Brewers did the same, choosing not to play its scheduled game against the Cincinnati Reds.

As I asked in the title of this post, is this 2020’s version of “Hands up. Don’t Shoot.”?

In a post which I wrote about Michael Brown and the Ferguson Riots titled “AG Holder Goes to Ferguson to Get…err…Seek An Indictment…As the Real Truth Starts to Come Out”, I commented that

I have been watching in fascination…and disgust…as the situation in Ferguson, Missouri has devolved into some sort of bizarre rush to judgement, for the purpose of some kind of strange racial reparation.

As the evidence against Michael Brown makes its way into the harsh light of day, the professional race-baiters, who have besieged the tiny town of Ferguson, and their supporting Liberal Pundits and sycophants on the World Wide Web, have continued their chorus of “innocence due to perpetual victimhood”, in the case of Michael Brown, proving that denial is not just a river in Egypt.

You see, boys and girls, at this point in the Liberal fairy tale narrative of “Mike the Gentle Giant”, with all of the blood-thirsty Liberal Trolls, who have descended upon the town of Ferguson, publicly writhing in anticipation of a presumed guilty verdict in the trial of Officer Darren Vinson, anything less than a guilty verdict will not satisfy their blood lust.

That is why President Barack Hussein Obama sent Attorney General Eric Holder down to Ferguson. Holder is there to make sure that Officer Vinson in indicted in the “wrongful death” of “Gentle Giant” Michael Brown.

Even if the shooting of the 6’4″, 290 lb. thieving, store owner-bullying, dope-smoking, 18 year-old thug was justified.

Decades ago, when the Ku Klux Klan rode through the nation, innocent black men were hung from the nearest tree, simply because of the color of their skin.

Today, in 2014, it appears that those roles have been reversed.

And, it has been sanctioned by Presidential Decree.

Two wrongs do not make a right…”civil” or otherwise.

Oh, by the way…”Hands up. Don’t shoot.” never happened. Michel Brown charged Officer Wilson, knocking him inside his patrol car. When he starting to go after him again, Office Wilson defended himself, shooting the “Gentle Giant”.

Now, in this age of out-of-control Virtue signaling and “wokeness”, what I observed back then is more true than ever.

Considering the fact that could very well have been reaching for the knife in the floorboard of the driver’s side of his cat when he was shot, that begs the question…

Why are these useful idiots rioting?

The immediate and most logical answer that comes to mind is

Because they can.

Until there are heavier consequences facing the rioters, then they will continue to burn up car dealerships and attack people in restaurants.

And, until the NBA and MLB are made to understand that Americans do not want the politics of a very small minority shoved in our faces when we want to be entertained by watching a professional sporting event, the clueless and obnoxious arrogant behavior of those involved will continue.

The professional race baiters and trouble makers who were involved in the riots during the Obama Administration also have a hand in the riots which we are watching develop in our major cities, even as I write this post after coming home from my job.

Maybe if these rioting Marxist wannabe anarchists had a job and a life, instead of sponging off their Mom’s in their basements, this “civil unrest” wouldn’t be happening.

Then again, Marxists have always relied on “useful idiots” to act as ground troops for their revolutions.

And, the Far Left Democrats in 2020 America are no exception to the rule.

Laura Ingraham Dunks on LeBron

lebron-james-laura-ingraham-e1518826475937

Sports Illustrated reports that

LeBron James and Kevin Durant have both responded to comments made by Fox News’ Laura Ingraham that were critical of the two for what they said about Donald Trump in a video with ESPN’s Cari Champion for the UNINTERRUPTED.

After James said Trump “really don’t give a f— about the people,” Ingraham said James and Durant should “shut up and dribble” instead of discussing politics.

When asked about the comments Saturday during All-Star media availability, James said he laughed at first when he initially heard of the comments and that Ingraham’s reaction proves what he has been saying about societal issues is correct. He added that he means “too much to society” and the youth to not use his platform in ways like this.

In an interview with Sam Amick of USA Today Sports, Durant called Ingraham’s comments “racist” and “ignorant.”

“It didn’t hit me,” Durant told Amick about his initial reaction to Ingraham’s comments. “Ignorance is something I try to ignore. That was definitely an ignorant comment. I do play basketball, but I am a civilian and I am a citizen of the United States, so my voice is just as loud as hers, I think – or even louder.”

Durant also told Amick that he’s aware that if people like him and James speak up about their opinions on certain issues, Trump’s election has “made it cool for people to kind of speak their truth and kind of show what they’re really about” and “of course they’re going to say ignorant things like that.”

James had previously posted a picture on Instagram with the caption “#wewillnotshutupanddribble.”

Hey, gentle readers, did any of you ask LeBron James and Kevin Durant, two Professional Basketball Players what their professional opinions were about the 45th President of the United States of America, Donald J. Trump?

Isn’t that like asking a 30-year-old dressed in Pokémon Pajama Bottoms in Walmart who is begging his 60-year-old mother to get him another video game to play in her basement about his work experience?

Please allow me to make a confession. It has been quite a few years since I was a serious NBA Fan. I’ve kept up from afar, just so I could engage in Water Cooler Talk at work. However, I enjoy college basketball nowadays infinitely more than I do the professional product.

I suppose that it is because of my rather youthful age of 59 and having grown up during some of the greatest times in the history of sports.

In the NBA, I can remember the Knicks, Celtics, Lakers, and Pistons playing hurt and leaving everything that they had out there on the court.

I am also a lifelong Memphis State/University of Memphis Tiger Basketball Fan.

Larry is also the reason that I went on to play and coach basketball, a 4th grade team and a church team, respectively.  My coaching record is 25 – 4.

But, I digress…

The reason that I have drifted away from being a big fan of the NBA is that they have drifted away from me.

As an average American, living here in the Heartland, I still believe in Traditional American Values, such as Faith, Hard Work, Loyalty, Gratitude, and Respect.

Rather, they are the whining, screaming, and lashing out of cry-baby millionaires, who neither respect their fan base, nor those who have made their path to fame and fortune possible through the shedding of their blood for the flag and country which they are so intent on insulting and diminishing.

And now, these two “professionals” who are extravagantly paid for playing a game that you can watch being played in playgrounds and gymnasiums across the country are feeling insulted because they are being called out about their vulgar verbal attacks which they are making on President Trump simply because the fact that he IS our president OFFENDS them.

Well, listen up, you ungrateful overpaid pampered pu…err wussified excuses for professional athletes.

You cry-babies offend US!!!

By “us”, I am referring to average Americans just like me, who are out here killing ourselves in our 40-plus hour a week jobs, just to make it from paycheck-to-paycheck, including those of us who actually still attend your games, shell out our hard-earned cash, just to see you disrespect our president and, at times, sleepwalk your way through games on your way to collect your millions.

You misanthropic ungrateful jackanapes are not worthy to lace up the tennis shoes of those who have gone before you in your chosen field of athletic endeavor.

Those American Athletes knew whom they were playing for and who paid their salaries. And, they also had the sense to keep their mouths shut about the leader of the country in which they were able to have the freedom to have the job that they wanted and be paid handsomely for it. They also had the home-training and grace to go to the White House and meet the sitting president, if they were lucky enough to be a part of a team which won their league’s championship.

They knew that young boys followed their every word and action, idolizing them as sports heroes. And, the overwhelming majority of professional athletes back in the day, took that very seriously.

You guys do not seem to take anything seriously…except your own notoriety and your enormous paycheck.

So, Kevin, LeBron, and the rest of you “disenfranchised” millionaires…

Learn from the NFL…

Before you watch your popularity, the fans in the stands, and your undeserved paychecks dwindling before your eyes…just remember:

Pride goeth before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall. – Proverbs 16:18 (KJV)

If you keep running off at the mouth and commit mass seppuku as the NFL is in the process of doing…then perhaps Peyton Manning can get you a job with Papa John’s Pizza…delivering.

The Weekend That the NFL and the NBA Flipped Off Average Americans – A KJ Op Ed

 

untitled (179)

Please allow me to make a confession. It has been quite a few years since I was a serious NFL or NBA Fan. I’ve kept up from afar, just so I could engage in Water Cooler Talk at work. However, I enjoy college football and basketball nowadays infinitely more than I do the professional product.

I suppose that it is because of my rather youthful age of 58 and having grown up during some of the greatest times in professional sports history, during which I was able to watch the incredible Undefeated Miami Dolphins, Pittsburgh Steelers, and Dallas Cowboys make the 1970s an NFL Fan’s dream.

In the NBA, I can remember the Knicks, Celtics, Lakers, and Pistons playing hurt and leaving everything that they had out there on the court.

I am also a lifelong St. Louis Cardinals Fan, and, as an alumni, my heart beats University of Memphis Tiger Blue.

But, I digress…

And now, their displays of arrogance and ingratitude are not just being manifested by refusing to honor the sacrifices made for them by brave men and women who died in service to the flag that they are insulting by kneeling during our National Anthem, now these Special Snowflakes are refusing to meet with our nation’s President, simply because the fact that he is our president OFFENDS them.

Well, listen up, you ungrateful overpaid pampered pu…err wussified excuses for professional athletes.

Sterling & the NBA: Banning a Bigot or Threatening Our Freedom?

Donald SterlingBy now, you have no doubt heard that Los Angeles Clippers Basketball Team Owner, Donald Sterling, has been fined and banned for life by the National Basketball Association, due to racist comments he made in a private telephone conversation, which was recorded by his mistress, and then given to TMZ.

In this private conversation he told the girl, who is young enough to be the 81 year old Sterling’s granddaughter, that he did not want her to bring any minorities to the game. Sterling’s mistress is half-black and half-Mexican.

While the 2.5 million dollars he was fined, alone, seems to be a pretty severe punishment, the new NBA commissioner, Adam Silver, had to go ahead and hedge his bet and ban Sterling for life to prove that he will be a tough commissioner and that he is on the side of the players. Because, boys and girls, in today’s NBA, the players are running the league.

Don’t believe me? Consider this…

Do you remember several years ago, when members of the Indiana Pacers ran up into the bleachers, to catch Ron Artest,who was going after a guy in the crowd who was yelling at him?

Ron Artest, now known as Meta Worldpeace, is still playing basketball in the NBA.

Heck…I will go you one better.

Remember when Latrell Sprewell choked out his coach, PJ Carlesimo, in practice? Sprewell went on to continue his career after that.

So, now are we going to tap the phones of every single NBA player, coach, and official, to make sure that nobody says something bad about somebody?

Under Obama, this nation has become a bunch of “Pajama Boys”.

Now, I’m not arguing that what Sterling said was not reprehensible.

It was.

However, in retrospect, was it any worse than what former NBA player Larry “Grandma” Johnson said? The former New York Knickerbocker said that the black members of the NBA should form their own league.

I suppose, so they don’t have to deal with all of us crackas.

Come on, people. Racism is racism. Bigotry is bigotry

archiesammyBack in the 1970s, Liberal TV Producer Norman Lear created the classic series, “All in the Family”, which revolved around bigoted Archie Bunker, a working class stiff up in New York City. Perfectly portrayed by the great American actor Carroll O’Connor, the program followed the day-to-day life of Archie, as he dealt with his wife Edith, whom he affectionately called Dingbat, his daughter Gloria, and his son-in- law Mike, whom he called Meathead.

Lear produced the series in order to show America how stupid bigotry was. What he didn’t count on, was the fact that Americans saw a bit of themselves in the character of Archie Bunker. And, instead of Americans laughing at him about his character flaws, we laughed with him.

The character of Archie Bunker, while flawed with prejudices, turned out to have a heart of gold.

And, America fell in love with him.

Of course, back then, our skin was thicker. We handled our own problems.  

For example, there was a bully who sat behind me in 7th Grade. He was twice as big as I was, and took great glee in making fun of me and trying to intimidate me. One day, I had had enough. I reached under my desk, took hold of my 2s  (tom) drumsticks and smacked him right between his beady little eyes. We were both sent to the Assistant Principal’s Office, where I explained my actions to Mr. Norville, pur Assistant Principal. After laughing in covert approval, he told me to get back to class.

Back then, we didn’t need any government programs to tell us “how to handle bullies”. Our parents raised us to take care of them ourselves.

But, I digress…

We are all prejudiced to a certain extent. Prejudice does not have to be about race. It can be about personality, body type, political affiliation, or geographical location.

The NBA has set a dangerous precedent here.

While Donald Sterling is lower than the belly of a snake and exhibits all the class of Rosie O’Donnell at an all-you-can-eat buffet, to ban someone for life over a private conversation, threatens Freedom of Speech and the expectation of privacy which we, as Americans, hold dear.

Is this a continuation of the atmosphere that President Barack Hussein Obama has created from his use of the NSA, IRS, and unmanned drones to intrude into the private lives of Americans?

The last nation to spy on their citizens in such a manner was the Soviet Union.

Again, I’m not saying that Sterling does not deserve punishment.

However, even an immoral libertine like Sterling, has Freedom of Speech and an expectation of privacy under our Constitution.

For the NBA to ban the immoral Sterling over a private phone conversation taped by his immoral, gold-digging mistress, pulls them down into the same mud hole as the two of them.

It is an unseemly situation all the way around.

One which could set the stage for a Liberty- threatening one.

Obama Condemns Donald Sterling, Bemoans America’s “Legacy of Race and Slavery and Segregation”…Fails to Give a “Shout Out” to Rev. Jeremiah Wright

Donald SterlingThe top story in the National News involved a conversation between the NBA’s LA Clippers Owner Donald Sterling and his much younger “girlfriend”, V. Stiviano, who is half-Black and half-Mexican, “not to bring any Black people with her to the games”.

Needless to say, it has caused a firestorm among the NBA Players and the Main Stream Media is fanning the flames.

The President made the following remarks when asked about the matter during a Joint Press Conference yesterday with the Prime Minister of Malaysia:

(Transcript courtesy of whitehouse.gov)

With respect to the statements by the owner of the Los Angeles Clippers — for our Malaysian audience, this is a sports team, basketball team in the United States. The owner is reported to have said some incredibly offensive racist statements that were published. I don’t think I have to interpret those statements for you; they kind of speak for themselves. When people — when ignorant folks want to advertise their ignorance you don’t really have to do anything, you just let them talk. And that’s what happened here.

I am confident that the NBA Commissioner, Adam Silver, a good man, will address this. Obviously, the NBA is a league that is beloved by fans all across the country. It’s got an awful lot of African American players. It’s steeped in African American culture. And I suspect that the NBA is going to be deeply concerned in resolving this.

I will make just one larger comment about this. The United States continues to wrestle with a legacy of race and slavery and segregation that’s still there — the vestiges of discrimination. We’ve made enormous strides, but you’re going to continue to see this percolate up every so often. And I think that we just have to be clear and steady in denouncing it, teaching our children differently, but also remaining hopeful that part of why some statements like this stand out so much is because there had been — there has been this shift in how we view ourselves.

And like Malaysia, we constantly have to be on guard against racial attitudes that divide us rather than embracing our diversity as a strength. And I know that the people of Malaysia are committed to wrestling with those issues as well. We have to make sure that we stay on top of it — and we will.

Barack Obama, Jeremiah WrightPoint of Order, Mr. President.  About this RAAACIIISM Thingy…for 20 years you sat under the former American Black Muslim Rev. Jeremiah Wright, at the Trinity Church of Christ, a “Black Liberation Theology” Church.

What is “Black Liberation Theology”? I’m glad you asked.

The chief architect of black liberation theology was James Cone, author of Black Theology and Black Power. One of the tasks of this movement, according to Cone, is to analyze the nature of the gospel of Jesus Christ in light of the experience of blacks who have long been victimized by white oppressors. According to black liberation theology, the inherent racism of white people precludes them from being able to recognize the humanity of nonwhites; moreover, their white supremacist orientation allegedly results in the establishment of a “white theology” that is irrevocably disconnected from the black experience. Consequently, liberation theologians contend that blacks need their own, race-specific theology to affirm their identity and their worth.

“What we need,” says Cone, “is the divine love as expressed in Black Power, which is the power of Black people to destroy their oppressors here and now by any means at their disposal. Unless God is participating in this holy activity, we must reject his love.” Observing that America was founded for white people, Cone calls for “the destruction of whiteness, which is the source of human misery in the world.” He advocates the use of Marxism as a tool of social analysis to help Christians to see “how things really are.”

Another prominent exponent of black liberation theology is the Ivy League professor Cornel West, who calls for “a serious dialogue between Black theologians and Marxist thinkers” — a dialogue that centers on the possibility of “mutually arrived-at political action.”

In the past, Obama has credited a sermon of Mr. Wright’s, “The Audacity of Hope,” with drawing him to what he identified back in 2008 as, “Christianity”.

On Page 293 of his first book,  “Dreams for My Father,” Obama recounts Wright’s “The Audacity of Hope” sermon.

Obama quotes this passage:

It is this world, a world where cruise ships throw away more food in a day than most residents of Port-au-Prince see in a year, where white folks’ greed runs a world in need, apartheid in one hemisphere, apathy in another hemisphere…That’s the world! On which hope sits!

In fact, Wright had so influenced the young Illinois Senator that Obama made the phrase “The Audacity of Hope” the title of his second book.

However, right before he announced his presidential campaign, Obama started to put distance between himself and his pastor of 20 years, cancelling plans for him to deliver the convocation prayer at the campaign’s formal announcement.

The president has been physically distancing himself from Rev. Wright ever since.

Can you say hypocrisy, boys and girls? Sure you can.

Oh, and another thing…have you heard the MSM mention that Donald Sterling is a Democrat?

The DailyCaller.com reports that

According to records obtained by the independent data research tool Littlesis.org – maintained by the Public Accountability Initiative – the owner of the LA Clippers embroiled in controversy has only donated to Democratic candidates.

Between 1990 and 1992 Donald Sterling made a $2,000 donations to the former New Jersey Senator Bill Bradley, a $1000 donation to current Vermont Senator Patrick Leahy, as well as a $1000 donation to the recalled former governor of California Gray Davis. Despite having a 100% track record of donating to Democrats, Littlesis.org has no records of him donating to either of President Barack Obama’s election campaigns.

Of course, racism and the Democrat Party have had a close relationship for well over a century, featuring such famous poster boys as KKK Grand Dragon Robert Byrd and Former Alabama Governor George Wallace, just to mention a couple.

It turns out that the man who was billed as our first “Post-Racial President” has done nothing but divide the races even further.

And, that’s not what any nation’s leader does…much less an AMERICAN PRESIDENT…unless…it is intentional.

Until He Comes,
