Obama’s town hall confronts our most volatile fault line

President Barack Obama faces a difficult challenge Thursday when he hosts a town hall aimed at engaging the country in a conversation about the combustible issue of race and policing after a series of horrifying and violent incidents last week.

The killings of African-American men by police in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and suburban Minneapolis, followed by a sniper’s rampage that killed five police officers protecting a peaceful protest march in Dallas, have left the nation on edge.

The hour-long town hall, which will be simulcast on ESPN and ABC and streamed on multiple platforms at 8 p.m. ET, is part of the president’s effort to restore calm and forge exchanges around the emotional issue of how police treat African-Americans – perhaps the most volatile fault line in American race relations.

“It’s a week that laid bare some of our country’s toughest, most uncomfortable challenges,” Obama said in a recent Facebook post. “But I reject the idea that these issues are somehow too big for us – that America is too divided to find common ground. As I’ve said, I know that we can honor the incredible courage and service of our police officers – and also recognize the racial disparities that exist in our criminal justice system. There’s no contradiction there.”

During the Washington, D.C., meeting, the president will field questions from police officers, students, community leaders and others in hopes of promoting understanding about the nation’s racial disparities, a subject on which Americans of different races hold sharply divergent views.

What a load of crap!

The worst part won’t even be the bullshit that comes out of Obama’s mouth, it will be the way his sycophantic followers in and out of the media lap it up with a spoon.

Fuck that and fuck him. I won’t be watching. I would rather shove a wet noodle up a bobcat’s ass than listen to Obama speak.

      I am not sure, but I think she lives on the other side of France.

      Nice is on the southern coast of France, Jadzia is closer to central France

        She’s still mourning the loss of her Dad on FB, so I won’t pressure her.

          No, now I’m mad. The funeral was bullshit. My dad was a militant atheist, but the funeral was Catholic. I’m Catholic myself, but really???? It was some deacon who didn’t know him (because you know, atheist) who got the 15 minute version of his life right beforehand and claimed that he was inspired to talk about the first letter of Paul to the Corinthians. Um, okay. Nobody even told any stories about him. And my family apparently went to the Whataburger (which dad always referred to as the Horseyburger after a little, um, scandal) afterwards.

          And because it was Texas, a large part of the crowd showed up in their bowling-alley best, but I’m a judgmental schoolmarm about these things, so I need to let it go.

  8. Somebody says:

    While it is true Obama has broken with a more traditional POTUS role and weighed in on local crime stories the media IMO is the most to blame for the state of things.

    If the very first time the asshole did that the media narrative was how he crossed the line, how inappropriate or unpresidential his actions were then that might have dampened things and prevented future such episodes. A large number of media talking heads are also guilty of accusations of racism on the flimsiest of pretenses, that has been happening for years now. If you keep screaming racism sooner or later it’s going to reach a fevered pitch.

    I just think all of the above has fueled the flames in this country and I believe without the constant media drum beat we might not be where we are now even with Obama as POTUS.

    I went out to lunch today with my teenager and my 3 grandbabies, we were in the city in an area with a lot of blacks. I noticed 3 conversations at different times that 3 people were having on their cell phones…..they were each talking loudly. They each said various different things, but each of them felt like the police and whites to a lesser degree have somehow declared war on blacks. They each recounted various overblown media stories. I heard each of them saying once, even twice, meh…..but after the 3rd or 4th time that’s when they knew it was open season on blacks or whites are trying to kill blacks, etc.

    I never conversed with any of them, simply overheard their side of conversation……they were so loud you really couldn’t avoid hearing them. These people all seemed sincere, truly of the belief that blacks are being targeted by either police or whites and once again their basis for these fears come from media reports. I had to wonder to myself what if the media did 24/7 coverage of the murders in Chicago or anywhere else? What if they covered the gang violence across the country in the same breathless manor they cover these, quite rare by comparison, police shootings? Would those 3 people instead be having conversations about the high crime rates in the AA communities or perhaps talking about gang violence and how it needs to stop??

    • taw46 says:

      I do fault the media. I rarely watch tv now, just sometimes FOX. But my relatives have on MSNBC. It is race, race, race 24/7. But he gets the most blame from me. A President who by all appearances wants a race war in our country. I despise him.

    • lateblum says:

      In Chicago, we have a daily report of the shootings and deaths – almost all are black on black. How do I know this? Because the skin color or race of the perpetrators is not provided in the report. IF the perpetrators are police – that is ALWAYS reported. If the perpetrator is Hispanic or Latino – that is often to usually reported. If the report states that an AA man/woman has committed the crime, I nearly fall over in shock. It is somewhat easy to figure out the racial make-up based on location in Chicago. Well, at least it was in the past. Crimes usually occurred on the south and west sides of the city .But lately, the criminals have branched into other, predominantly white neighborhoods. And although the victims are often Caucasian, the criminals remain predominantly AA.
      But I did digress…. I have friends who have decided to NOT watch local news anymore, because the are tired of the neighborhood crime reports. These friends feel the daily reports glorify the shootings, stabbings, etc. and do not wish to add to the encouragement of those crimes.

      Why did the Republicans choose a Democratically controlled city? Do they not have any Republican ones?

      • Mt.Laurel says:

        I thought it was a bad choice when it was announced. I am sure it was the combo of factors such as mod size city in swing state.

        Republican Mayors are an almost extinct species according to most info I have seen. But there are a few:

        Wichita, Omaha, Tulsa and Oklahoma City are most likely viewed as too fly over.

        This is the third major attack of this nature, albeit the largest. There were similar attacks (vehicles plowing into the crowd) in Dijon and Nantes at Christmas markets in 2014, both with casualties. (Right after the attack on the police station in my city.)

      Fuck you, New York Times. Here is my “say something nice” for the day: as OBVIOUSLY ineffective as Hollande’s government has been at preventing terrorism (although to be fair, I’m sure there have been attacks prevented that we will never know about), the government here has not really insulted our intelligence by playing this “golly gee gosh, we have no idea who could have done this” game.

    Wow, Newt is on Hannity and just slammed the elites, from Obama on down, for letting this terror go on and on. Said he is sick of the Western nations saying we can’t do anything about this medieval group ISIS. Listing all the barbaric crimes. Slamming the media for not being honest about what is happening. Said any Muslims here in the U.S. that practice Sharia should be deported, anyone going on ISIS Internet sites should be charged with felonies. Can’t wait for this video clip to come out.

    It occurs to me that it is VERY interesting that the countries that just said no way to admitting hordes of “refugees” (mostly small countries in Eastern Europe) are not being attacked in any way, shape, or form. And you know it’s not because they have crackerjack security forces; those countries are poor. Nor are we seeing attacks on (not-so-poor) Middle Eastern countries that have been less soft-hearted than the countries of Western and Northern Europe. Basically, it’s the relatively wealthy countries that rolled out the fucking welcome mat that are being thanked for their hospitality in this manner. Really makes you think.

          • Jadzia says:

            YES. My kids can tell you all about Clovis, if you’re having trouble sleeping. Because of my limited comprehension, I’m kind of unclear on when they get to the more modern stuff. In elementary school, they actually do a ton of prehistoric stuff because of the paleolithic sites around here. They’ll get to Martel eventually–my oldest kid here is only 10.

          • Jadzia says:

            We’re in kind of a weird area: totally bourgeois neighborhood and relatively conservative Catholic school, bordering a neighborhood called Sanitas, which I think is French for “bad neighborhood”–housing projects. In the middle of a city that overall is dominated by the university (champagne socialists) and suburbs that are the birthplace of France’s Communist party (because it’s the location of one of the biggest train repair yards in the country, so there are TONS of “proletarians of the world” in those areas).

            But in the last election: 1/3 Socialists, 1/3 UMP/”les Republicaines” (center-right), 1/3 National Front.

    • Venus says:

      I don’t like to mention this at a time like this, but since you brought it up, and it is something I know about given the history of Greece’s enslavement under the Ottoman Empire for 400 years (did you know that Greeks don’t call their country “Greece” or themselves “Greek” — those words come from the Turkish word which means “slave” — Ellas is the name of the country).

      Anyway, the wealthy Western & Northern European countries not only didn’t pay attention to history as to why there is good reason to be separate (East and West), they genuinely believe that if they — with their “superior” knowledge & “sophisticated” values –let these 3rd world people in to supplement the work force, that the “ignorant, unsophisticated” hordes would not only be grateful, but would be blinded by the West’s superiority & seek to become *like* the West.

      This is the result of Western arrogance.

      • Jadzia says:

        That is very interesting info about the name of the country!

        I have mixed feelings about, well, whose idea it was to let folks in to “supplement” the work force. Sometimes it seems as though our government perhaps hasn’t notice, but we have a bit of an unemployment problem? Working- and middle-class people in this country at least probably would prefer not to have the workforce supplemented! That said, almost everybody seems to agree that a desire for cheap labor was at least one of Merkel’s motivations for rolling out the red carpet. Just another reason that the Schengen area is a shitty idea–what’s good for Germany might not be good for France, Italy, Austra, whoever.

        Also, it seems to me that the sentiment that people from the Middle East and Northern Africa (principally) would want to become like us is pretty out of date in a world in which British government officials are acquiescing to Sharia law in heavily Muslim areas, in which the French government is passing laws that basically admit that we have to force people to comply with our customs (i.e., the no-hijab-at-school rule and many towns’ refusal to provide halal meals in the public schools (public school lunch is catered by the city here, that’s how it works)).

        I have no insight into what the hell is going on in Scandinavia.

        More and more it feels like we’re living in 3 societies here: a lawless immigrant class, an out-of-touch elite who will NEVER get it until somebody “important” gets hurt or killed in one of these attacks–and the majority in the middle, who mostly just want to work and have decent lives and who are becoming increasingly angry at the lawless underclass for, well, you know, and at the elites for caring not one bit.

        • Venus says:

          It’s the globalists pulling the strings — like Soros, et al (and they are on the left & right). They just want *cheap* labor; they really don’t care about the native’s unemployment. I saw a British economist on the night of Brexit and he said with a straight face that the immigrants were good for the economy because they have “higher employment levels than domestic workers” It was only when Trish Reagan (on FBN) said “That’s because they’re undercutting the domestic workers wages” did his face change. Hand to God, that idea had JUST OCCURRED TO THAT FOOL! Then he tried to back peddle about “understanding the domestic worker’s frustration and anger” but it was bullshit.
          These evil people want the entire west to transform into 3rd world places where they, the VERY RICH TOP 1% have all control/money and the rest of us are wage slaves. If that means letting us die our or killing us and replacing us with the 3rd worlders, sobeit — and they’re not very choosy, which.

    The “historic” town hall on race was one of the dumbest, most tone-deaf, irrelevant wastes of time ever even for Broncobama. It isn’t mentioned much in the even most drooling media. I am hoping he is getting to the point where he is totally ignored, yesterday’s news, and just a boob whinging about his own delusional crap. Hillary was even trying to do some kind of damage control on Fox News to be relevent. Events have outrun them and they do not control the narrative any longer. Just looking at either one of them and I think “Blah, blah, blah, squawk, blah, blah, snooze”. Deaths of “little people” mean nothing to either or them.

    • DeniseVB says:

      Everything Obama does now is historically stupid, and yes, a whinging ninny🙂

    • taw46 says:

      Even black twitter was pissed at him last night, saying the whole townhall was blaming them for what was happening. Most of them said they turned it off. So, guess he didn’t please anyone.
