LOS ANGELES, August 24, 2014 — Michael Brown’s funeral is being held this Monday morning. While the loss of any life is sad, the loss of Michael Brown’s life no more or less sad than the loss of any other.
Barack Obama was elected as the “post-racial” president. By electing Obama, America was supposedly moving past its racial past. Instead of healing racial divides, Obama has done his best to exacerbate them.
Much has been said about Michael Brown being the “tipping point” on racial disparity in America.
However, Obama sending a delegation to Michael Brown’s funeral isn’t about racial healing. It is about sticking a finger in the eye of middle class America.
Brown, an 18-year-old man who was killed by a police officer on August 9, became a trigger for looting and rioting in the town of Ferguson Missouri. Brown’s father demanded there be no demonstrations while his son’s funeral took place, though he was one of those out screaming, “No justice, no peace,” as Michael Brown wannabe’s looted the stores of Ferguson and burned stores to the ground.
Among the attendees at the funeral today is a delegation from the White House. Many Americans have a serious problem with this. In the last hour of his life, Michael Brown robbed a store, assaulted a store clerk and either assaulted a police officer or tried to kill him.
In the days after his death, the media showed numerous photos of Brown flashing gang signs. Why is the White House sending a delegation to this funeral?
Just four days before Brown’s death, Major General Harold Greene was killed by terrorists in Afghanistan. He was the highest ranking officer to be killed in a combat zone since the Vietnam war.
Obama did not attend the funeral. He was out golfing. He did not send the vice president, nor did the secretary of defense attend.
General Greene was an engineer by profession, so he did not spend that much time in combat but still he gave his life for this nation in a combat zone, killed by the enemy. Greene gets no recognition by the golfer-in-chief, but an 18-year-old thug, a criminal and who assaults a police officer receives a presidential delegation for his funeral.
While this says a lot about the priorities of the Obama Administration, it also says something else.
Obama and the radical left do not want racial healing in America. They want just the opposite.
Instead of waiting to see what the facts were, Obama ordered Attorney General Eric Holder to go to Ferguson. He sent 50 FBI agents to Ferguson to investigate a case that state officials were handling just fine.
When Brown’s autopsy report showed evidence consistent with Officer Darren Wilson’s account, Holder ordered another autopsy.
In October, the grand jury will issue a report on the shooting. If the result is at Wilson acted in self-defense, there will be more riots.
