It is not the intent of this article to comment or expound on the guilt or innocence of any of the parties legally connected to the tragic killing of Ahmaud Arbery. Ahmaud Arbery was a human being. A child of God. A twenty-five-year-old black American citizen. He had a family and he was loved. And on Feb. 23, 2020, he was shot to death by two white citizens: Greg McMichael and Travis McMichael, in Satilla Shores, Georgia. It’s up to the courts to adjudicate the case.
If Mr. Arbery had been killed by two black men; killed by a black woman; shot twenty times on the streets of Baltimore or Chicago or trampled by a herd of elephants, he would have remained one of the approximately sixteen-thousand Americans murdered each year who, except for their immediate families and communities, remain relatively anonymous. Approximately seven thousand of these citizens were black. Their mothers were just as devastated as Ahmaud Arbery’s. But, notwithstanding all of their positive attributes, they have no value to Democrats because Black Lives Matter to them, only when taken by white men.
Why is the color of the principals involved in this tragedy so valuable to the white liberals and the black race hustlers who make up the Democrat Party leadership? It is simple: The Democrats need over 90% of the black vote to maintain power, and for almost 60 years they have eviscerated the black community. In these Democrat-controlled camps, schools are horrible; crime, murder, and drug abuse are everyday occurrences; poverty, homelessness, HIV and pre-mature death are on the rise. What then must Democrats do to corral black people to the polls? Do what they do best: Invoke FEAR of white racism.
It has worked in the past. Race hatred has been the foundation of Democrat politics for the past 220 years. Black Democrat politicians learned well from their white masters. “Keep the Ni##ers down and the price of cotton up” was the slogan of Ed Smith, Democrat Senator from South Carolina from 1909 to 1944 (black Republican Senator Tim Scott now holds his seat.) Along with this race hatred, an absolute aversion to the presumption of innocence and due process has existed in this party since its inception. Slavery and Jim Crow indict their past aversion. Abortion, Clarence Thomas, Bret Kavanaugh, impeachment and now Ahmaud Arbery’s murder investigation indict them now.
While debating Travon Martin’s lawyer on the Sean Hannity Show, I provided an election year prediction. I predicted that the Democrats would pass on highlighting thousands of black killings until they find the “golden kill.” That would be the killing of an unarmed black person by a white person. The Democrat Party would co-op the tragedy and exploit it to deflect from their constant exploitation of the black community. The Iron Triangle (most black preachers,black
On cue, the black sports and entertainment millionaires club spoke out. 6’9” 250lbs multi-millionaire LeBron James tweeted “We’re literally hunted EVERYDAY/EVERYTIME we step foot outside the comfort of our homes!” May 10th, according to CNN, Jay-Z, Alicia Keys, Meek Mill and Yo Gotti released a letter demanding swift justice.
Rep. Karen Bass, chair of the Congressional Black Caucus said “When you have hate emanating from the Oval Office why are we surprised?” The NAACP has been everywhere. Black preachers are marching. The Washington Post opined on May 11 “Hate crimes have risen since Trump’s 2016 election.” According to the May 8th edition of the Washington Post, former Vice President Joe Biden stated that seeing Arbery “shot down in cold blood” was like seeing him lynched before our very eyes.” On May 5, 2020 former Vice President Biden tweeted: “Ahmaud Arbery was killed in cold blood”. In the same tweet he called it “murder.”
This selective outrage would be hilarious if it wasn’t so sad. These people, most of whom would not have given Ahmaud Arbery a job, a loan or a place to stay, now see him as a tool. They are not seeking “Justice for Ahmaud.” They seek attention and power for themselves.
Why is this troubling? These people are influencers and should yield to the presumption of innocence and remain impartial until a jury has reached its verdict. They know this. To throw gasoline onto this fire, recklessly inciting a dangerous situation that in the past has led to the death of innocents, for political purposes, illustrates why this depraved party must be driven from any leadership position in Washington.
President Donald Trump’s measured response and tone was a complete contrast to Biden’s race-baiting, rabble-rousing, and hyperbole. According to USA Today, President Trump said “He looked – I saw the picture of him in his tuxedo, it was so beautiful – I mean he looks like a wonderful young guy. I think it was horrible and it’s certainly being looked at by many people.”
In Proverbs 4:16 it is written: “For they cannot rest until they do evil; they are robbed of sleep till they make someone stumble.” The Democrat Party is the oldest and in many ways is still the most continuously destructive organization in the world. The ease with which they slide into such nefarious actions like these is troubling. The condition of most black people in America highlights a harsh truth: The party that they have allowed to violate and infringe upon their freedoms continues to manipulate, exploit and control them for its own – but not their – purposes.
Dr. Jack Kevorkian (aka Dr. Death), like the Democrat Party, was on a killing spree, daring the nation to stop him. Judge Jessica Copper in sentencing him to prison said you “Dare the legal system to stop you. Well, sir, consider yourself stopped!”
The Democrat Party is daring America to stop them. Let’s work together and stop them, starting with Joe Biden.
