No Need For Evidence: Minnesota Governor Declares Shooting Racist, Obama Declares Justice System Racist

This morning, I asked why Americans couldn’t wait for the facts to emerge on the shootings of Alton Sterling in Louisiana and Philando Castile in Minnesota before jumping to racial conclusions. This afternoon, America’s top Democratic politicians proved why: they need to race-bait.

Early this afternoon, without waiting to hear any of the evidence, Minnesota Governor Mark Dayton called the shooting of Castile racist: “Would this have happened if the driver and the passengers where white? I don’t think it would have. This kind of racism exists and it’s incumbent on all of us to vow and ensure that it doesn’t continue to happen.”

President Obama also issued a racially inflammatory statement:

All Americans should be deeply troubled by the fatal shootings of Alton Sterling in Baton Rouge, Louisiana and Philando Castile in Falcon Heights, Minnesota. We've seen such tragedies far too many times, and our hearts go out to the families and communities who've suffered such a painful loss.

Although I am constrained in commenting on the particular facts of these cases, I am encouraged that the U.S. Department of Justice has opened a civil rights investigation in Baton Rouge, and I have full confidence in their professionalism and their ability to conduct a thoughtful, thorough, and fair inquiry.

But regardless of the outcome of such investigations, what's clear is that these fatal shootings are not isolated incidents. They are symptomatic of the broader challenges within our criminal justice system, the racial disparities that appear across the system year after year, and the resulting lack of trust that exists between law enforcement and too many of the communities they serve.

What is your answer to this question: 

Did Obama Incite The Dallas Cop Killings? (here)

To admit we've got a serious problem in no way contradicts our respect and appreciation for the vast majority of police officers who put their lives on the line to protect us every single day. It is to say that, as a nation, we can and must do better to institute the best practices that reduce the appearance or reality of racial bias in law enforcement.

That's why, two years ago, I set up a Task Force on 21st Century Policing that convened police officers, community leaders, and activists. Together, they came up with detailed recommendations on how to improve community policing. So even as officials continue to look into this week's tragic shootings, we also need communities to address the underlying fissures that lead to these incidents, and to implement those ideas that can make a difference. That's how we'll keep our communities safe. And that's how we can start restoring confidence that all people in this great nation are equal before the law.

In the meantime, all Americans should recognize the anger, frustration, and grief that so many Americans are feeling -- feelings that are being expressed in peaceful protests and vigils. Michelle and I share those feelings. Rather than fall into a predictable pattern of division and political posturing, let's reflect on what we can do better. Let's come together as a nation, and keep faith with one another, in order to ensure a future where all of our children know that their lives matter.

This is nonsense. First off, there is no systematic pattern of black men being shot for racial reasons by law enforcement. One study at the Washington State University found that “even with white officers who do have racial biases, officers are three times less likely to shoot unarmed black suspects than unarmed white suspects.” And according to Professor Peter Moskos of John Jay College of Criminal Justice at City University of New York, “If one adjusts for the racial disparity in the homicide rate or the rate at which police are feloniously killed, whites are actually more likely to be killed by police than blacks… Adjusted for the homicide rate, whites are 1.7 times more likely than blacks die at the hands of police. Adjusted for the racial disparity at which police are feloniously killed, whites are 1.3 times more likely than blacks to die at the hands of police.”

Next, incompetence by cops does not automatically translate into racism. Police officers are frequently involved in controversial shootings. Sometimes, those shootings are egregiously bad. That still does not mean the officers in question hate black people – it could also mean they don’t know what they’re doing.

Who is this fool minister---- Rev Jeff Hood, He should be held responsible for the deaths if these brave Officers. He should be cencered or defrocked. What kind of a church does he preach at?????

When they visited the juvenile justice children, they disguised themselves as  Baptist pastors.

This guy isn't playing with a full deck...


Meet the Leftist Reverend Behind the Dallas Black Lives Matter Protest




SIGN UP FOR OUR NEWSLETTER

The lead organizer of the Dallas protest where snipers opened fire on police officers has made several disturbing comments on his social media. A Breitbart News review of Jeff Hood’s internet footprint revealed regular posts about the apocalypse, violent retribution to police, and Hood even recently posted about the 2013 death of a self proclaimed “social justice warrior” who committed suicide by lighting himself on fire in front of a shopping mall in Texas.

Video of Hood speaking on camera just after the attack surfaced on social media where Hood talks about “leading the protest.”



Dallas activist Dr. Jeff Hood describes shooting that happened as protester we're walking down Elm St by Greyhound


Breitbart Texas’ Brandon Darby tweeted about protest organizer Jeff Hood wanting to “create a space for anger and rage” at the Dallas protest.


Dallas protest organizer @revjeffhood told Dallas Morning News he wanted to "create a space for anger and rage" against police.


Reverend Hood closely follows police shootings and state executions and regularly prays for divine retribution for police, like this post in response to a police shooting in Dallas from April 24, 2015:

For now, the blood of black men will continue to roll down driveways, streets and sidewalks with impunity. However, God is not mocked. The judgment is coming. Those police who continue to spill the blood of black men will be held accountable…for black blood matters just as much as any other blood to God.

Also, this post from May 11, 2015:

“The police are always prepared for a gunfight. We shouldn’t be surprised when they actually get one.”

In one of his most recent tweets, dated June 26, Hood tweeted a story about Social Justice Activist Charles Moore, who went out in a blaze of glory two years ago by lighting himself on fire in front of a Texas shopping mall.



In a recent post on June 18, Hood invokes Jesus as being present as the words “Keep blowing shit up baby!” are said, seemingly during some kind of worship service led by Hood:

Just this past week, I felt the hands again. One by one, the children of God at the Church at the Table in Fort Worth stopped to affirm and celebrate my ministry. In the midst of the reverence of it all, Jesus showed up. One of my dear friends shouted out, “Keep blowing shit up baby!”

I will.

Amen.

The post concludes with a picture of Hood kneeling and several people holding their hands over his head.

Hood’s posts and tweets add a religious and even apocalyptic zeal to the message espoused by many leftists, like this post from November 2015:

…Oh God damn these hate crimes and all the institutions that fail to act to prevent them. No more will we sit back and allow this community to be brutalized. No more will we act like nothing is going on. No more will we stand aside as the least of these are brutalized. God we pray that you will send fire down into our hearts to bolster us in a powerful way…then can you please send a little bit of fire down beneath our asses to keep us marching for justice. Hallelujah! Hallelujah! and…

Hood has also written several interesting titled books. From his public page onBelieveOutLoud: “Jeff is the author of three books, The Queer: An Interaction with The Gospel of John, The Queering of an American Evangelical and The Sociopathic Jesus. A Southerner, Queer, and Christian, Jeff is a committed activist, visionary writer and radical prophetic voice to a closed society.

Hood has also commented in defense of Muslims after other recent attacks, in posts here and here.

HOW THE HELL could any muslim who follows allah be a Christian????  You have to follow CHRIST to be a Christian-------------DUH

Texas Muslims are the Real Christians

622x350

 

“All Muslims aren’t terrorists, but all terrorists are Muslims.” A woman shouted these words into the camera in one of the many videos of Christian protests of Texas Muslim Capitol Day in Austin. During the over hour and a half event, Christians consistently shouted down Muslim speakers and at one point came close to assaulting some of the speakers. Muslim children from Texas were screamed at and told to return to their home country. If that wasn’t disgusting enough, Christian Texas Rep. Molly White posted on Facebook, “I did leave an Israeli flag on the reception desk in my office wit... While there are some who might argue with my use of the word Christian to describe these protestors and Rep. White, I think it is important for fellow Christians to realize that this is a mess of our creation. Starting with our belief in an exclusionary God and our promotion of the idea that there are people who are damned for all of eternity, we have promoted theology that constructs a God that is identical to the Christian protestors. If we want to change the perception that people have of Christians, we have to promote theology that offers no quarter for those who believe God hates some people enough to send them to burn in hell for all eternity.  If you need an idea of what a loving God looks like, look no further than the Muslim speakers who sought to love those Christians protestors that treated them with hate yesterday.

 

One of the speakers was Mustafaa Carroll, the Executive Director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations in Houston. Having no idea who he was, I first met Mustafaa about six months ago at an Iftar hosted by the Texas Muslim Democratic Caucus. I knew very few people at the event. While I was standing alone, Mustafaa came up to me and confirmed that I didn’t know many people at the event. I explained that I came at the invitation of my friend and that he was busy getting the event going. “So you really don’t have anyone to hang out with?” Mustafaa replied. “I guess not,” I replied. After the exchange, Mustafaa made sure I felt welcomed and engaged with everything that was going on for the rest of the night. I will never forget his kindness. I am thankful for his continued friendship. Yesterday at the Texas Muslim Capitol Day, a Christian protestor pushed Mustafaa and other speakers out of the way and spewed hate into their microphone (pictured above). When I saw the events transpire, my heart really hurt for my friend.

 

When I think about all that has happened over the last few days and consider that love is the core of what it means to be a Christian, I think that Texas Muslims are the real Christians.

 

Amen.

http://revjeffhood.com/texas-muslims-act-like-real-christians/

We need to realize that Christians do NOT follow or even RECOGNIZE Allah.  He, she, it is absolutely opposed to everything Christian, and especially its roots in Judaism.  Their 'Holy' book tells them to kill all Infidels.  How do you or they associate that with Christianity?  Make 'em all go away, to some Country where they are in the majority, and make 'em STAY there.

He wants to bring people together in justice and love???? Then shut your trap, moron!

ALL THESE LYING INFILTRATORS/TRAITORS NEED REMOVED FROM OFFICE......!!

And let's not forget this is the same Governor that has allowed so many muslims in his state, and are now declaring rape against women in Minnesota.  I don't hear him saying anything about that...   How much is obama paying you to push his agendas?

Judging by your poster Marilyn, he may have lost Minnesotans trust, but he sure found where to take hold of it and plant himself. IMO 

I'd say he's CLEARLY on board with obama's agendas...

CASTILE WAS ARMED ROBBERY suspect who pulled gun on officer.

The Falcon Heights, Minnesota police shooting of Philando Castile is based around an entirely false narrative.  Castile and Ms. Diamond Reynolds (Facebook video uploader) were pulled over by police because Castile matched a BOLO Alert for an armed robbery suspect from four days prior.

And he was NOT arrested because......?

ALERT ALERT

Joe Biden Vows: Give Taxpayer-Funded Obamacare To All Illegal Aliens In U.S.

Former Vice President and 2020 Democrat presidential primary candidate Joe Biden is vowing to give Obamacare, funded by American taxpayers, to all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living in the United States.

During an interview with Telemundo’s Jose Diaz-Balart, Biden forgot that Obamacare technically bans illegal aliens from enrolling in healthcare plans — although illegal aliens are still able to obtain subsidized and free healthcare at Americans’ expense — and promised that under his plan, all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens would be able to get Obamacare.

The exchange went as follows:

DIAZ-BALART: When I … NBC moderated that first debate with you, I didn’t … I don’t recall a clear answer, under your plan should … would the 11, 12 million undocumented immigrants that live in the United States, that have been here many for generations, would they have access …

BIDEN: Yes.

DIAZ-BALART: — to health insurance.

BIDEN: Yes, they … if they can buy into the system like everybody else.

DIAZ-BALART: Because you know, in [Obamacare] they can’t.

BIDEN: Yeah. Yeah, I know. Well they can, that’s my point. They continue to be able to do that.

DIAN-BALART: They cannot under the ObamaCare.

BIDEN: Well and that’s my point, they will though. They will be able to buy into … [illegal aliens] would be able to buy in, just like anyone else could.

Biden joins Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), and South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg — among other 2020 Democrats — in committing to forcing American taxpayers to pay for healthcare for illegal aliens who arrive in the U.S.

Already, due to loopholes, American taxpayers are spending nearly $20 billion every year to provide illegal aliens with subsidized healthcare, emergency room visits, and other health services.

Under the 2020 Democrats’ plan to provide taxpayer-funded healthcare to all illegal aliens living in the U.S., Americans would be billed potentially $660 billion every decade just to cover the costs. Other research has found that the plan would cost Americans at least $23 billion every year.

As Breitbart News has reported, experts have said that giving taxpayer-funded healthcare to effectively all foreign nationals who can make it to America’s borders would drive “strong incentives for people with serious health problems to enter the country or remain longer than their visas allow in order to get government-funded care.”

Despite 2020 Democrats’ continued push for taxpayer-funded healthcare for illegal aliens, American voters are overwhelmingly opposed to the plan. The latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News survey revealed that the healthcare-for-illegal-aliens plan is the least popular policy position, with opposition from 62 percent of U.S. voters.

Similarly, a CNN poll from July discovered that 63 percent of likely swing voters oppose providing healthcare to illegal aliens, along with nearly 6-in-10 of all likely U.S. voters and 61 percent of moderates. A Rasmussen Reports survey also found that likely voters, by a majority of 55 percent, oppose giving healthcare to even the most low-income illegal aliens.
