What?? Didn’t Obama and the Dems get enough mileage out of Trayvon Martin?
Cornel West on the CT shooting from The Smiley & West Show aired December 22:
“We can’t just shed tears for those on the vanilla side of town with the Middle Class. They are precious but they are no less or more precious than our poor brothers and sisters on the Indian reservations who are killing each other, or be they black or brown or what have you. But it’s a good thing we now have a discussion on gun control. We need one on drone control. But think of Father Pfleger or Reverend Hatcher or others in Chicago who tried to get the White House to talk about gun control, not a peep, not a (unintelligible) word when the black folk gettin’ shot. But now Newtown Connecticut, vanilla side, low and behold we got a major conversation.”
Cornel West is just a leftwing blowhard with a Ph.D. The conversation always turns to race when assclowns like West do the talking. That Newtown was a white-on white crime doesn’t matter; they’ll find a way to insert racism into the mix even if it means complaining about all the attention it got. Black-on-black violence is glamorized by rappers and gangs, both of which see nothing wrong with shooting each other, and if innocent bystanders get killed, oh well. Speaking of which, Chicago, the cesspool from which West and Smiley broadcast their garbage, has had over 15,000 murders since 1990. The city has a gun ban, and Rahm “Dead Fish” Emanuel has been mayor since February 2011, but can’t seem to do much about the ‘Tribal Warfare’ in the streets.
The Newtown murders and the gang violence that plagues Chicago day in and day out, have two things in common: both involve thugs and unhinged lunatics hellbent on killing, and neither have anything to do with race.
