I’m not going to lie.
As of 10:00 PM CST, President-Elect Donald Trump has yet to say anything about the #BLMKidnapping. This was a huge test and so far it has been a big disappointment. It’s not like he hasn’t commented on videos like this before. Back in September, Trump said he was “very troubled” by the Terence Crutcher police shooting in Oklahoma and wondered aloud whether Officer Betty Shelby had “choked.”
Just a few days ago, Trump threatened Mayor Rahm Emanuel with federal intervention unless he brings Chicago’s soaring murder rate under control. Given his interest in Chicago’s gang violence, it is strange that Trump would have nothing to say about a White kid who was tortured for six hours by black thugs, who was beaten in his name, and who was forced to say “F*** Trump” on camera after a knife was held to his throat.
What’s up with that? I suspect it is because he is surrounded by cuck advisers like Reince who are telling him not say anything about what happened in Chicago because it would be “racially polarizing” and that his job as president is to “unify the country.” If the races were reversed, however, these same gutless cowards would spin on a dime and advise Trump to make a bold statement about “hate” and “racism” in America.
We saw what happened in South Carolina after the Dylann Roof shooting in Charleston and how the Republican establishment seized on that incident to attack Confederate monuments all over the South. Here in Alabama, Gov. Robert Bentley took down a Confederate flag display at the Alabama State Capitol. In Kentucky, Sen. Mitch McConnell supported the removal of a Jefferson Davis statue. In Tennessee, Gov. Bill Haslam supported the removal of a Nathan Bedford Forrest Bust from the Tennessee State Capitol.
Reince Preibus issued the following statement on behalf of the RNC after Charleston:
“WASHINGTON – Today Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Reince Priebus joined Governor Nikki Haley and other public officials in South Carolina to call for the removal of the Confederate battle flag from state house grounds. Chairman Priebus issued the following statement:
“Now is the time to do what is right, and I support the call by Governor Haley and South Carolina leaders to remove the Confederate battle flag from state house grounds,” said Chairman Priebus.
“This flag has become too divisive and too hurtful for too many of our fellow Americans. While some say it represents different things to different people, there is no denying that it also represents serious divisions that must be mended in our society. For South Carolina, taking down this Confederate flag is a step in mending those divisions. Our future must be better than our past. We are not meant to be a country divided by racial tensions; we are meant to be a country that stands united.
“Our prayers are with the people of South Carolina during these difficult times.”
“Now is the time to do what is right” … and Cuck Reince personally flew down to South Carolina to stand beside Nikki Haley and Lindsey Graham at the press conference when she announced the Confederate Battle Flag had to go.
What about now? Are we going to acknowledge that this terrible crime even happened? If not, what is going to happen when future incidents like Charleston arise? Is every terrible crime that happens to blacks a national tragedy while even the most shocking crimes that happen to Whites are unworthy of presidential attention?
