Why isn’t Obama singing at his funeral?
It’s always interesting to make comparative analyses in order to uncover hypocrisy. On Monday, the South Carolina legislature voted to remove the Confederate battle flag from a monument on the State Capitol grounds. This is part of a reactive liberal progressive frenzy of a manipulated crisis resulting from the actions of one racist sociopath who killed nine black churchgoers in Charleston SC. We all came to know those nine beautiful souls, who were sadly and demonically taken away from us. However, anyone heard of Amari Brown?
As reported by the Chicago Tribune, “After a relatively quiet start to the Fourth of July weekend in Chicago, a burst of gun violence overnight left three dead and 27 people wounded in just eight hours, including 7-year-old Amari Brown, killed after returning from a celebration.
“It’s crazy,” said Vedia Hailey, the grandmother of the boy. “Who would shoot a 7-year-old in the chest? Who would do that to a baby? When is it going to stop?” From 9:20 p.m Saturday until 4:45 a.m. Sunday, 30 people were shot across Chicago, three of them fatally, including Amari. The other victims included a 16-year-old boy and a 15-year-old girl shot shortly after midnight as they walked in Old Town, and a 19-year-old man shot around 10 p.m. Saturday as two groups fought near Navy Pier after the fireworks display. Several of the shootings across the city involved multiple victims: Four people shot in one incident in Austin, three shot in Albany Park, and two victims in shootings in the West Chesterfield, Humboldt Park, Old Town and Fuller Park neighborhoods. The worst burst of violence last Fourth of July in the city occurred during a 13-hour stretch from Sunday afternoon through early Monday morning: four dead and 26 wounded. So far this holiday weekend in Chicago, seven people have been killed and 41 people wounded by gun violence. Last year, the toll was 82 people shot in 84 hours. Sixteen of them died.”
The final toll for Independence Day 2015 in Chicago was ten killed and 55 wounded.
But hey, don’t worry, it was the Confederate flag that made them do it, and Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel is doing everything to have the Confederate flag removed from Chicago. Illinois GOP Governor Bruce Rauner is calling for a special session of the State legislature to remove any flags and monuments reminding anyone of the Confederacy.
Yep, that will solve the problem.
So where is the outrage and press statement from the first black president, Barack Obama? After all, he is from Chicago. Any marches planned or rallies with signs saying, “black lives matter?” Louis Farrakhan is also a Chicago resident — guess this all happened because of the American flag, huh Louie?
