Ferguson, Obama, and “Your” Laws

Consequences of President Obama’s top-down attitudes on racism and the rule of law are evident in Ferguson where protestors are ignorantly shoutingwe don’t give a f**k about your laws”. That pretty much mirrors what the American public has been hearing from the White House.

Obama’s knee-jerk reactions to racially sensitive issues set a tone for the black community that has resulted in increased racial tensions in the country. Expectations of a “post-racial” era were dashed early in Obama’s first term when he took a hasty anti-police stance in the Harvard Professor Gates incident. His racial knee jerked again in the Trayvon Martin incident and sending Holder to Ferguson provided a presidential stamp of approval for turning Michael Brown’s death into a racial schism.

His disregard for the law has been on display with his willingness to ignore, skirt, and re-define immigration laws and his back-room negotiations have underscored his scorn for the “transparency” he once promised. Using executive orders to get his way shows how he feels about “your” laws, the same laws protesters “don’t give a f**k about”.

The use of “your laws” by the protesters exemplifies the disassociation and disrespect Obama displayed for this country and its laws with his “apology tour”. Once he solidified and legitimized that attitude, it was adopted by many admirers in the black community and it now fuels the Ferguson fiasco.

Disregard for the law from the top cannot help but have dire consequences. Unfortunately, we haven’t seen the last of those consequences.

One Response to “Ferguson, Obama, and “Your” Laws”

  1. Bruce Says:

    Obamas’ objective is to transform America into a copy of the west European socialist countries.

    Poorly educated people who act on emotion rather than knowledge are his largest audience.

    He gets help from Hollywood, who produces films that favor his agenda. Major print and electronic media also help by distorting the meaning of words.

    There is more to come.
