Preemptive Offenses

All-Racism Wednesday

1. The Origins Of Presidential Racism.

It appears that we now know a bit more about Barack Hussein Obama's seething racist rage: he was a crumby basketball player in high school, but persuaded himself that the reason was "structural racism:"

Obama’s driving ambition as a young man was to be a professional basketball player, and his identity was wrapped up in that dream. Obama was a failure in this endeavor. Obama came to blame his failure on structural racism, explaining his failure on his coach’s "white" game, which prevented Obama from playing his own “black” game. He then turned to politics, and put his identity and ambitions into America’s vibrant racialist, socialist political subculture. (All of this is in Obama’s memoir. Try this. Go read it.)

Well, we can say with assurance that:

  1. Obama's still a crumby basketball player;
  2. Basketball isn't the only thing he sucks at.

2. An "Of Course" Moment.

Dr. Benjamin Carson, a highly accomplished and respected neurologist, made some waves by denouncing Obama's policies to his face at the recent National Prayer Breakfast. The torrent of abuse that's been showered on him ever since tells us a great deal about the left-liberal character of racism in these United States:

Dr. Ben Carson on Tuesday blasted his critics for heat he’s taken recently over controversial remarks on gay marriage, calling his white liberal detractors “the most racist out there.”

“They want to shut us up completely, and that’s why the attacks against me have been so vicious,” Carson said on the Mark Levin radio show. “I represent an existential threat to them. They need to shut me up, they need to get rid of me, they can’t find anything else to delegitimize me, so they take my words, misinterpret them, and try to make it seem that I’m a bigot."

Well, of course. Naturally! There's nothing more cherished in the Left's little bag of tricks than the race card -- and every black conservative who disputes their continuous allegations of pervasive racism among white conservatives is a terrifying threat to their control of The Narrative.

Thomas Sowell, Walter Williams, Larry Elder, Herman Cain, and Ben Carson: men of substance, insight, achievement, courage, and melanin. They must haunt the Democrat Party's worst nightmares. We could have no better examples of what self-reliance and trust in the promise of freedom can do for a man willing to apply his talents to the satisfaction of his desires, no matter what the color of his skin.

3. "Community Organizing" In Action.

The latest outbreak of seemingly random violence as reported by CBS:

The warmest day of the year so far brought hundreds of teens to Michigan Avenue on Saturday. Police were calling it “mob action.”

CBS 2 has learned about multiple incidents in at least four different locations along the Magnificent Mile and in the Gold Coast, yielding a slew of arrests. In all, 25 juveniles and three adults were charged.

Many innocent shoppers and tourists became caught in the middle of a very chaotic situation. Hundreds of teens littered Michigan Avenue and State Street near Chicago....

Charges range from battery and strong-armed robbery to reckless conduct.

CBS 2 has learned since these charges are misdemeanors, many of those arrested have already been released on I-bonds.

Sources tell CBS 2 that much of this activity was planned weeks ago through social media.

The story doesn't mention the race of the offenders, nor that of their victims...but videos taken at several of the attack sites make it clear that the mobs were almost exclusively black, and the victims exclusively white.

I've become accustomed to reading about black-on-white violence that the major media are too timid to report as such. It's why I never leave the house unarmed. The critical matter in these most recent mob attacks is given in the last paragraph of the above:

Sources tell CBS 2 that much of this activity was planned weeks ago through social media.

What does that say to you, sports fans? That young Negroes might just be getting ready to rumble with us stodgy old white folks in a really big way, maybe? That their carefully nurtured sense of grievance and entitlement hasn't been assuaged by iPods, gold chains, and designer sneakers? That the lack of public outrage and outcry over their probes to date might just have persuaded them that they can get away with anything?

It's no longer possible for me to believe that it's just "hijinks." Your mileage may vary.
