Official WH delegation to attend Michael Brown funeral

Former Obama White House Chief of Staff and current Mayor of Chicago Rahm Emanuel once famously stated, “never let a good crisis go to waste.”

I haven’t spent much time assessing the events in Ferguson because not all of the facts are known. But true to form for President Obama, he’s not allowing this crisis to be wasted politically. For the Obama administration everything is about politics and when you live in an echo chamber you don’t realize – or maybe just don’t care — how others perceive the optics of politics.

As reported by USA Today, “U.S. President Barack Obama is sending three White House aides to the funeral of Michael Brown, the black man whose fatal shooting by a white police officer sparked days of racial unrest in Ferguson, Missouri. Leading the group for Monday’s service will be Broderick Johnson, the chairman of the My Brother’s Keeper Task Force, an Obama initiative that aims to empower young minorities, the White House said Sunday. He will be accompanied by two representatives from the White House Office of Public Engagement, including deputy director Marlon Marshall, who officials say is a St. Louis native and attended high school with Brown’s mother.”

Now, if Mr. Marshall wanted to attend Michael Brown’s funeral in his personal capacity because he attended school with Brown’s mother, that’s understandable. But I do not understand why a three-person White House official delegation necessary.

I guess what perplexes me is that we just laid to rest the highest ranking person to die in combat since the Vietnam War, MG Harold J. Greene, and neither the Commander-in-Chief nor the Vice President attended his funeral in Arlington National Cemetery. I pray it wasn’t because it conflicted with a round of golf. Yes, the Secretary of Defense attended MG Greene’s funeral, but where was the high level official representation from the White House?

Former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher was laid to rest and I barely recall an official statement from Obama — he certainly didn’t attend, and only a low-level delegation was sent. Of course it was a different story for the funeral of former South African President Nelson Mandela. I’d say Lady Thatcher had done a tad bit more for the United States, including the fight against the Soviet Union and ending the Cold War, and had been a superior ally to America.

Or how about the dismissive optics last week of President Obama stating how broken-hearted he was over the beheading of American journalist James Wright Foley and just eight minutes later was on the golf course laughing and fist-bumping.

But those obvious contrasts aside, where have the official White House aides been for funerals in the countless cases of young black men killed in Chicago, Detroit, Philadelphia, Washington DC, Atlanta, or any other major inner city at the hands of other blacks?

Why hasn’t Attorney General Eric Holder been dispatched to those areas? It is this political hypocrisy that angers me the most — and also brings sadness as blacks continue to fall victim to the game of charades played by these charlatans.

All for political gain, Michael Brown has garnered the interest of the Obama White House and the white progressive socialist plantation masters as a means to continue to pacify the black community into believing they actually do give a damn — which they don’t. All these bad actors want is blind obedience and the preservation of the economic plantation from which they harvest electoral support.

So this White House enlists the deplorable Al Sharpton as its envoy of envy and will have an official delegation at the funeral where this criminal and shakedown artist will deliver a eulogy. For what? Did Sharpton grow up in Ferguson? Did he know Michael Brown or his parents? Does he have any relationship with the greater St. Louis community? Nah, just a race-baiting huckster propped up and empowered by the Obama administration.

And what will it say of the Obama administration if after there is a fair investigation, that Michael Brown was not — as Jesse Jackson Sr. stated, “the victim of a state execution?” What if Brown, who had just robbed a store and assaulted its owner. did attack a law enforcement officer and charged him in a violent rage? Folks, truth is not an assault on someone’s character.

“When we go back to our communities, there’s a Ferguson near us,” said the Rev. Willie Bodrick II, 26, of Roxbury, Massachusetts, a youth minister and recent graduate of Harvard Divinity School. Yes Reverend, there are plenty of Fergusons around where black unemployment, especially among teens, is astronomical. Where the welfare nanny-state has robbed blacks of their pride, self-esteem, sense of personal responsibility, will, and determination. Where 72 percent of black children are born into single parent households. Where there is no economic growth, just economic enslavement.

Unfortunately, that is not the crisis on which court jesters such as yourself focus — those crises do not garner your attention and therefore as you pander to the political crisis, the black community goes deeper into waste. Call me Uncle Tom, House Negro, Oreo or any other disparaging name — but the real “sellout” is off playing golf and laughing his arse off!

It’s always all about “the message”.
So, what is the MESSAGE being sent by President Obama, Eric Holder and the rioters in Ferguson, Missouri?
Is it that a police officer has NO right to protect himself – and the community – from a much larger, younger attacker IF that assailant just happens to be Black?
What is that saying to the REST of us? :-<

Knotalibby

It’s saying maybe its time to bring back segregation. Who would want to share their neighborhood with people like those who loot and riot and commit arson? Who wants neighbors who can commit any crime they want because the police can’t arrest them? Not me.

melsbabysis

And again I’m asking you about putting everyone in the same box. I am black and I sure didn’t loot. There are a whole lot of white people I wouldn’t want to be around. There are bad on both sides. There are also good on both sides. The media just doesn’t show it. Ferguson was staged. The looters didn’t even live there. You’re not the only one angered.

Knotalibby

I know a lot of really great black people too. The problem is, they aren’t speaking up and the only thing the media is showing us is what we saw in places like Ferguson. They spotlight people like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton who don’t really give a crap about black people. They just see them as a paycheck. They love stirring up trouble and pretending to care because it fills their pockets. Good, hard working blacks need to speak out against the race-baiters whose goal is to keep blacks and whites separate. Until people start telling them to get… Read more »

No not everybody. But, how many white people did you see looting? I didn’t see any caught on camera. So, they are either extra stealth or they weren’t doing it. They rioted in the city I work in a few years ago. Guess what? They were all black. Same thing, burned out businesses and houses. Even occupied houses. They targeted whites in violent attacks. They blamed the police for policing. When is the last time you saw this sort of violent display in a city full of white people? Right.

I had my first introduction to Roxbury, when I was about the same age as the young Minister Bodrick. I had just started driving a Boston taxi, picked up a young man in Copley Square and drove him to the Bromley-Heath projects. I pulled into the projects and was gawking at the boarded up windows and the broken glass and trash everywhere, when the passenger got out, opened my naively unlocked front door and held a knife to my chest. I learned a hard lesson, that day.

I’m not sure what the White House is trying to accomplish, but I do know what their efforts are accomplishing. They have created an atmosphere of mistrust between the police and the community and between blacks and whites. They have torn the seam of common sense.

The more occupy wall street, protests in the streets, black people in an uproar the better. One crisis after another with this bunch. Total anarchy is what they want. Does that spell it out for you well enough. Get the crap pout of your head

William
Guest

When Obama made that comment he was running for President in a time when people were desperate for radical change. People were panicking, remember? And no, OWS does not want anarchy, we want crooked politicians and banksters in prison.

Too bad Obama wasn’t the radical that FOX, CNN etc portrayed him as, and we got stuck with another 8 years of Bush-Clinton.

Annette Kirschbaum
Guest

OWS was a sanctioned and spurred on event by the democrat party. In my opinion it was a creation of the dem party. His form of transformation I don’t want and totally reject. Not the radical? CNN is in his back pocket. He was never portrayed by them as a radical. The media is obsessed with white on black crime, not black on black crime. They were all upset when Zimmerman was half hispanic. Did not fit the template.

Seems to me that the media has not worked this hard to demonize black people since the days of the Black Panthers in the 1960s.

tim
Guest
Who is demonizing blacks? Michael Brown robbed a store, had some sort of an altercation with a police officer (with no video of the incident there will unfortunately never be a clear story of exactly what happened), and he’s being hailed as a victim of a racist white cop. Michael Brown is not being demonized – it’s quite the opposite. A man who behaved very poorly in the moments leading up to his death and potentially (depending on whose story you choose to believe) attacked a police officer is being held up on a pillar as some sort of martyr.
William

Racists in the media are demonizing the shooting victim.
HeII, they’ve even tried to claim the guy broke the copS skull.

Medical reports I’ve read mentioned an ‘orbital fracture’, which is a serious fracture of the eye socket. You need to stop making excuses for a young criminal punk and get your wacko liberal tendencies sorted out.

William

Actually, that was a hoax story cooked up by a white supremacist website called The Gateway Pundit.

Canuck Sailor
Guest
William
Guest

A lot of people were fooled by it. Turns out it was a hoax perpetrated by a bunch of neonazis. Little Green Footballs, Wonkette and other blogs exposed the hoax. The ‘report’ about the eye socket fracture included an X-ray, taken of a child in 2008. The ‘family friend’ was non-existent, came from a fake face book page which has since been taken down.

Canuck Sailor

Sure it was – let’s see some citations from valid sources backing you up. I assure you, if the WP had it wrong, it would be all over the news, and it’s not. You see, there’s this thing called libel laws…blogs such as the ones you cited tend to ignore those things…while real publications such as the WP are ruled by them.

A prediction – we won’t hear from William with citations because he has none. Typically liberal reaction -when you get caught without proof of your blather, disappear as quickly as possible. People might forget about you.

The “white teen in Utah shot by a black cop” should say, “the hispanic man (20 years old) in Utah was shot by a black cop.”. The cop was wearing a video camera but the police won’t release the tape, otherwise I would of said, “murdered by a black cop”

FlyDiesel

Was Trayvon Martin shot by an hispanic man?

1slacker
Guest

That was in Florida. In the article, 4th paragraph, it states,”It’s funny, I think only one newspaper in the country covered the story of a supposedly unarmed white teenager shot by a black cop in Utah – but that just doesn’t fit the narrative, so who cares?”. The supposed teenager in UTAH was 20 and Hispanic not white.

Philanthropussy
Guest

Thanks for race baiting West, the article nor the news story mention the officer’s color. Plus, the man became belligerent with cops and had record.

“At the time of Taylor’s shooting, court documents show he had a $25,000 bench warrant for a probation violation in connection with felony robbery and obstructing justice convictions”

Tom Wright

Does that warrant killing him, either? We are guaranteed our day in court with representation.

That Brown had his hands up is not a fact. The principal reporter that he had his hands up was his partner in crime at the convenience store in which Brown stole merchandise and bullied the storekeep. Wise up, lady.

a witness is a witness.

And I put the info out? Just what I heard like everybody else. Relax, is it time for your happy pills?

Canuck Sailor

My point, which you clearly aren’t clever enough to figure out, is that a witness is not always a good or reliable witness. Some, like the accomplices of criminals such as Brown, even have anti-police agendas. Imagine that!

Philanthropussy

Cops still have to use it. Who says he’s bit telling the truth anyway?

Since he’s a criminal, I’d put the odds against it. As I said, that’s why we have juries and judges.

Funny how you can speak about the Taylor kid and make excuses for the black cop, but won’t give the same for the white cop! Typical!

According to the NY Times, the autopsy report said: “One of the bullets entered the top of Mr. Brown’s skull, suggesting his head was bent forward when it struck him and caused a fatal injury, according to Dr. Michael M. Baden, the former chief medical examiner for the City of New York, who flew to Missouri on Sunday at the family’s request to conduct the separate autopsy. It was likely the last of bullets to hit him, he said. Mr. Brown, 18, was also shot four times in the right arm, he said, adding that all the bullets were fired… Read more »

Yippiedoo

This story is pointless because none of the other people that died led to rioting in the streets on any level, let alone the level that it led to in Ferguson, MO. The response isn’t b/c of police shooting somebody, it’s because of the civil unrest that followed. Comparing apples and oranges, typical political commentary.

Toadie
Guest

I think it depends on where it happens it depends on the ppl involved. It has nothing to do with race. Or SHOULDN’T be about race. The ppl of Ferguson some of them have decided to riot and protest on the streets at night. I think some will hit the news and some won’t. IDK what happened with this story, and sometimes ppl don’t tell us enough so we have to guess. I pray for that young man’s family and it’s sad that so many ppl are losing their lives for whatever reasons….

it’s actually completely about race, and you can’t claim that it isn’t. if you can thoroughly explain to me how it isn’t about race then i’m all ears.

That young man and his family can’t even be left alone the day he is buried. How about it’s private they can have whoever they want say the eulogy. Who is Allen West to judge he doesn’t like Al Sharpton so what that mother is burying her son. Why would someone who can’t even print a word of condolences to his family dare judge who’s saying the eulogy. Nothing stops LTC. West to cry on Margaret Tatcher grave, that young man matters to some people.

Andy Martin

Bull. The Brown family had the usual race pimps in attendance. Punk azz Sharpton ‘eulogized’ Brown with a call to riot. Hopefully he catches a bullet somewhere soon.

Andy Martin

Yet the ‘funeral’ was record. Especially Sharpton’s rant.

Canuck Sailor

If the family, whose choice it is, choose Alan Sharpton to speak, they are clearly making a political statement. That makes it all of America’s business, since that shabby racebaiter’s only goal is to create yet more divisiveness. A MLK he is not.

Yes he was 6″4″ and 300 lbs. That is pretty good size person. He was robbing the place when the people in the store called the police. It was their business that they were trying to save, not a bully that came in to cause a lot of trouble. The rag-media must have been very close to the situation, otherwise it would not have been out of hand. I blame the media for not getting the facts straight before they caused a lot of damage to this town and its people.

I guess I will. “How is Officer Wilson feeling….Physically and Mentally?” I hope he is well

Officer Wilson is alive to feel something. I don’t really care what it is no. His wife didn’t have to go to a funeral today. So they are fine.

No one saw him attack the police. Police themselves are not saying if he attacked the officer or not. That’s the smearing I’m talking about. Where does that information comes from, do you even care?

News flash: Hispanics are considered white in the U.S. Census (among others) because, from an anthropological and medical standpoint, they share key genetic markers and skeletal measurements with ‘whites’. Hispanics have European ancestry

Raymond Otis Gatter
Guest

Many also have Hispanic ancestry. See the Moors of North Africa that ruled most of Spain, Portugal, part of France, & Italy that inter-bred with the native peoples there & shared their Muslim & African Culture. People that were persecuted & murdered during the Inquisitions, alongside the Jews because they weren’t Catholic!

All anthropologists should understand that “race” has no intrinsic relationship to human biological diversity, that such diversity is a natural product of primarily evolutionary forces while “race” is a social invention. In other words Race is a made up term used to try to make you feel superior to someone else. What ever you need to justify your bigotry and racist beliefs, just keep hanging on to them one day that may be all you have.

Whats your point? You’re arguing technicalities instead of reality. You really think all of us white Americans would care if we all knew the victim was, in reality, ‘Hispanic’? You know, since we, as regular citizens, don’t refer to the census to determine if someone is white or hispanic…

Clifton

Nope not all white Americans. All white Americans do fall for most of the things posted by idiot west.Point is that you are eating up lies and using that as more fuel for your race base hate.It is funny how the live of some are perceived to be so much more valuable than others. As I stated before All life is precious in the eyes of God, what’s a regular citizen? That implies there are irregular citizens!

So, Clifton. What is your race, skin color, culture, ethnic group etc? I believe you’re black and probably frequent WorldStarHipHop and screech “white privilege” on ThinkProgress.org. You’re a moron if you don’t see the way it truly is. Obama has set us back fifty years following the Cloward-Priven model and Marxist ideology he adheres to. Keep kissing “Man’s Country” poster child’s backside. He could care less about you whereas Col. West cares about America.

You, Mr. West can only be described as an “Uncle Tom”. Just in case you don’t know the reference……
“The phrase “Uncle Tom” has also become an epithet for a person who is slavish and excessively subservient to perceived authority figures, particularly a black person who behaves in a subservient manner to white people; or any person perceived to be a participant in the oppression of their own group.”

This pretty much sums up your position in the republican party.

cop killed a white unarmed white man. There is nothing about left or right when it
comes to this subject. It’s about the media and how they are shaping there standards on the public.

Again are you mentally impaired? The only reason you care is so you can point a finger and continue your racist stupidity. Why aren’t you demanding the release of all the info from the Ferguson shooting so you can have the fact instead of repeating gibberish? What is your obsession with pimps?

So you don’t have the pic. That’s what I figured.

And they will release the report from the shooting. Did you forget you have the tox screen as well as the fed investigation pending?

I’m surrounded my pimps. You raffy, puzzy…………race pimps all. I call ’em as I see ’em.

Wipe the spit off the monitor son. No rage here. I’ve seen your kind over many, many years. You clowns are a dime a dozen.

Rafael, just remember now when you comment, the ‘other’ death by cop was also a criminal.

Andy Martin

If that was his record, I agree. I knew we could eventually agree that thugs are animals and should die. Glad to see you came around.

I guess we don’t need jails.

Not if you try to kill a cop. Not if you make an aggressive move on a cop. You bypass jail and go to the morgue.

“Not if you make an aggressive move “, stand your ground, you don’t have to be a cop. Anyone can kill anyone that they perceive as a threat.

The SYG law needs to be revisited in some states IMO. Too broad.

For a group that makes noises like wishing to have “equality”, all the rioting blacks in Ferguson should understand rioting whites over this incident. Here’s equality: All criminal thugs should expect to get shot by the police if they break the law. Armed, unarmed….doesn’t make any difference. Oh…this thug wasn’t white enough? George Zimmerman was plenty white enough for you, though, now wasn’t he? What a bunch of hypocrites. According to the FBI, who accumulate crime by race statistics, Whites commit 7% of total crime in the US…Non-whites commit the rest. Stands to reason that non-whites would be shot by… Read more »

no one disagrees with recognizing the societal ills that you mentioned but they must be rectified at a personal and institutional level. inner city crime results from a lack of educational and economical opportunities that leads to the disregard for human lives as people are pit against each other. that being said the ORGANIZATIONAL SANCTION and ABUSE of POWER that leads to the killing of unarmed people is deplorable. people should not live in fear of the people we pay to protect us.

I disagree. Other races living in the same level of poverty do not even come close to the level of black crime. It is not the police, or poverty who cause crime. Until responsibility is taken, no improvement will be realized. You don’t see other races rioting, looting, and demanding to be able to commit crimes without being challenged. Unarmed people are dangerous. Unarmed people who refuse to follow police directions, and who attack police officers risk being shot and/or killed. If you think unarmed people are not dangerous you are a moron. The truth is that blacks have a… Read more »

Really poverty has nothing to do with crime rates?

Steve the dog man

Is that what i said? There are statistics that show the crime rates by race, and (as always) blacks are on top and climbing. You think blacks are the only poor people? Quite a bit of “I’m poor” is “I’m too lazy to get off my butt”, or “I can’t declare my dope income or my pimping profits.” There may be some evidence that lower income has a higher crime rate…but…crime is a matter of character, not income. Is stealing cigars from a convenience store motivated by poverty? Roughing up the store owner…only thing a poor person can do, right?… Read more »

75% or convicted child molesters are white what does that say about white people character?

Steve the dog man
Guest
Were we talking about that? I see that when you know you are wrong, you change the subject. Okay…Whites are 87% of the population, so naturally there will be more. I believe if you reviewed the facts, it would be clear that blacks excel there, too. HOWEVER…if an “unarmed” white child molester attacks a a black cop right after committing a sex crime, and the cop shoots him, I say CONGRATULATIONS, and thank you. I don’t go out and burn stores and take home an armful of other people’s property. Want to change the subject again, genius?

Well it’s one kid that got shot by one cop. Nothing else. I don’t see why all these things unrelated to that one kid getting shot is being discussed.

Steve the dog man

The “kid” is 18. An adult in 50 states. (57 if you’re Obama). He is 10 minutes from a “strongarm robbery” captured on video, and there is substantial evidence that he was shot attacking the police officer. YOU are the one that keeps changing the subject. So I guess we are done. It’s a battle of wits and you are out of ammo.

Rafael X

What “substantial” evidence? Not from the incident report.

Breaking news on Fox, another white serial killer in CA. shooting random people with a shotgun. Don’t worry, they captured him alive, so he will get his day in court…

Without firearms we are all at the mercy of the Michael Brown’s of this world. He was big and had an attitude, and he knew it. He buffaloed the store clerk, he figured he could do the same with the cop. A man’s fists have been held in court as deadly weapons. The officer probably felt he had more coming at him, and being injured and having vision problems, he said a “Hail Mary”, and dumped his magazine. We don’t need a grand jury to figures this one out.
