Speaking out on the senseless shooting of Trayvon Martin in Florida, Obama decides to blame all of America for the actions of one slightly disturbed man:
I think all of us have to do some soul searching to figure out how does something like this happen. And that means we examine the laws, the context for what happened, as well as the specifics of the incident.”
John Podhoretz refuses to accept blame:
What soul-searching exactly is it “all of us have to do” here? A black kid was shot by a Hispanic adult apparently besotted with law enforcement whose volunteer work for neighborhood watch had him calling the cops in his Orlando suburb nearly 50 times in a year to report on his suspicions.
What President Obama here is doing is suggesting...there is some kind of collective guilt in the United States responsible for George Zimmerman pulling the trigger...Take this argument to its logical conclusion and George Zimmerman is some kind of monster of the American Racialist Id, not a man who did something apparently very wrong but a manifestation of all American hostility toward black people.
It is what Obama has always been taught. It is what the Left so reverently believes. For Obama to admit this is a local law enforcement issue would be traitorous to his ideological grounding - and to Saul Alinsky as well.
If you live in New Jersey, you've seen this before. August 2007 brought us the "Newark Massacre" - a horrific incident in which six illegal aliens (one of whom was arrested and released for raping a child without being deported) accosted a group of four college-bound kids in a schoolyard, sexually assaulted the two females, then lined them up against a wall, on their knees, before executing them (one survived).
What was then-Governor Jon Corzine's response to this attack, precipitated by his demand for lax enforcement of immigration law? Why, to blame the people of New Jersey, of course:
"I have to say it is beyond comprehension. It is more than statistics and more than a story. It is about a failure of us to be inclusive and holistically look to bring everyone into our society."
Obama claims "we" have to "soul-search" for the murder of a minority youth by an unstable individual. Corzine blamed us for a rape-and pillage spree because we are not being "inclusive" and "holistic" enough towards psychotic illegal aliens.
The average American: Paying for the sins - and ambition - of politicians.
Well, fuck you, Barack. I am not responsible for George Zimmerman any more than I am responsible for paying for my neighbor's mortgage or some bum's health care. And fuck you, Jon Corzine - if anyone has blood on their hands, it is you, for putting policies in place that allowed that sick pack of animals to stay in Jersey in the first place.
I do not accept unearned guilt. I do not accept the twisted code of values that attempts to force me to bear the blame for someone else's actions. I stand with Any Rand - and Andrew Breitbart, who understood this better than anyone:
The sanction of the victim is the willingness of the victim to accept the moral terms under which he or she is accused. This willingness allows the oppressor to coerce the victim through guilt and obligation. Rational people will withhold their sanction when they do not accept the premise under which they are victimized. If their own moral code is not the code of their oppressors, they are not obligated to participate under the oppressors’ terms or to validate the oppressors’ position by accepting it as rational...
