“GOVERNMENT SPONSORED RACISM”

Of course the city is Chicago. Of course the appointment was made by the new mayor, Rahm Emanuel; a man of enormous capacity but no character. Of course the newly appointed police superintendent, Garry McCarthy, would make his explosive charge of “government sponsored racism” in St. Sabina’s, the parish of Father Pfleger.

No, you’re not getting video here. The rant against the “racism written into the Second Amendment” went on for more than five hours. It is not the Welfare State that is responsible for the destruction of inner city culture, is the racism of the Second Amendment. It is not the rampant pushing of illegal drugs that is responsible for the destruction of inner city culture, is the racism of the Second Amendment. It is not the 130 years of corruption that is responsible for the destruction of inner city culture, is the racism of the Second Amendment. It is not the the hate preached in Black Liberation pulpits that is responsible for the destruction of inner city culture, is the racism of the Second Amendment.

We already know that, if we think the fruits of our own labor belong to us, we are racists. So now we are lectured that if you believe in the Second Amendment you also are a racist.  Here are a few pulls from the five hour incoherence of a very nasty man:

  • “So here’s what I want to tell you. See, let’s see if we can make a connection here. Slavery. Segregation. Black codes. Jim Crow. What, what did they all have in common? Anybody getting’ scared? Government sponsored racism.”
  • “Now I want you to connect one more dot on that chain of the African American history in this country, and tell me if I’m crazy. Federal gun laws that facilitate the flow of illegal firearms, into our urban centers across this country, that are killing our black and brown children.”
  • “The NRA does not like me, and I’m okay with that. We’ve got to get the gun debate back to center, and it’s got to come with the recognition of who’s paying the price for the gun manufacturers being rich and living in gated communities,”
