San Diego police officer killed on duty; attack may have been deliberate
I just want to point out how some people have been using language that can be considered to be inciting the violence. Louis Farrakhan last year called for 10 thousand men for retaliation, presumably against the police for police shootings of blacks. He declared blacks must rise up and kill those, who are killing us (blacks) at about 5:30 into this video.
Farrakhan has called for American Indians and Chicanos to join the the Nation of Islam in their “Justice or Else” campaign as you can hear in the first part of the last video and in this video below.
Farrakhan is, by far, not the only person inciting violence, but he is a major voice. The two policemen were shot within about two miles of Chicano Park, a city-funded park in San Diego, which promotes the revolutionary ideology of Chicano-ism and La Raza. La Raza is just another name for the Chicano movement. Chicanos claim the Southwestern United States as their national homeland, which they call Aztlan.
Just last April 23rd at the annual Chicano Park Day. David Rico, the leader of the Chicano paramilitary, the Brown Berets, called for a response to the Police and Border Patrol “who have killed many of us” (at 3:30). He also declared that they would “get the Southwest back, one way or another” (at 1:30).
These leaders know how far they can go without incriminating themselves and may not call directly for attacks on police, but their rhetoric helps create the atmosphere that leads to the murder of policemen.
Obama has also, himself, said some things that can be considered to be incitement. Obama has relativized the killing of police, making it seem equivalent to police shooting of blacks, whether justified or not. Obama and his Attorney General, Loretta Lynch have both encouraged the Black Lives Matter movement to continue, even though some in the movement has, at times, openly called for the killing of police.
Obama and Lynch have the power to investigate any police shooting to determine, whether anyone’s civil rights were violated or not. In Ferguson the Obama administration did an investigation and came up with nothing. In Baltimore the police were also cleared in the Freddie Gray class. Obama, Farrakhan and Loretta Lynch need to shut up and stop encouraging violence.
The black identity religions of the Nation of Islam and Obama’s Trinity Church of 20 years are similar and apocalyptic in nature. A race war is prophesied by these cult religious doctrines and the behavior of Farrakhan, Obama and others of their ilk ought to be examined openly in the light of their apocalyptic religious beliefs. Chicano-ism / La Raza is not a formal religious doctrine, but they also have a similar ideology of confrontation and conflict with white society.
