Exceptionalists of all colors take responsibility
The road to exceptionalist is arduous but the results are exceptional!
“Police officers in Ferguson were shot, just because they were police officers
Seconds after the shots were fired and the cops went down, a protester on the other side of the street shouted out: ‘Acknowledgement nine months ago would have kept that from happening’ – no doubt in reference to the death of Michael Brown and the resulting mayhem. “
Blaming police for troubled youths disobeying the law is the stuff of demagogues. Deliberately enraging troubled youths with classic hate mongering and blame shifting is escalating the problem. The problem in Ferguson is not the police, the problem is broken fathering that is resulting in out of control violence.
Who are the real thugs lurking behind the scenes, pulling the strings of vacant eyed vulnerables? The real thugs are careful to stay out of the big house while incensing vulnerables to mindless violence.
A true exceptionalist father figure to the chaotic violent community of Ferguson would take responsibility and not blame shift onto police.
Obama should be more like Bill Cosby, says Giuliani, as he blames President for not addressing the ‘enormous amounts of crime’ committed by African-Americans.
Bill Cosby evidentally suggested that people who steal are asking to get shot by the police.
Guiliani suggested that McDonald’s beating, shooting of Ferguson police officers and protesting of NYPD Commissioner is also Obama’s fault.
“Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani on Thursday castigated President Barack Obama for setting a ‘tone’ that inspires violent behavior in America and advocated for him to emulate Bill Cosby when it comes to talking about black crime.
He also told radio host John Gambling during an interview on AM 970 THE ANSWER that Obama is ignoring ‘enormous amounts of crime’ being committed by blacks.
Roughly ’70 percent’ of homicides in New York City are committed by African Americans, Giuliani said. ‘There are many, many extremely understandable’ reasons for that both historically and environmentally, he added.
‘And if an African-American president stood up and said – I hate to mention it because of what happened afterwards – the kinds of stuff that Bill Cosby used to say. The kinds of stuff that Imam Pasha says at the Malcolm X Mosque: This is our responsibility,’ he said, trailing off into an explanation of Pasha’s doctrine.
Imam Izak-EL Mu’eed Pasha is a black, Muslim leader in New York who Giuliani has been friends with more than a decade.
I remember Pasha saying to his congregation, if there were less crime in the community, there would be less police in our community, Giuliani recalled.
When referencing Cosby, the retired New York politician was referring to allegations that surfaced last year that black actor raped or otherwise sexually assaulted number of former cast-mates and other women throughout the ’60s, 70s and 80s.
Prior to that ‘America’s Dad’ had earned a reputation for forcefully encouraging African-American teens to clean up their act and make better use of the educational system their ancestors fought to earn access to.
In on memorable – and controversial – address Cosby touched on the perils of stealing and defended police against charges of racism.
Now known as ‘the Pound Cake speech’, Cosby said, ‘These are people going around stealing Coca-Cola. People getting shot in the back of the head over a piece of pound cake.
‘Then we all run out and are outraged: “The cops shouldn’t have shot him.” What the hell was he doing with the pound cake in his hand?’ Cosby asked.
‘I wanted a piece of pound cake just as bad as anybody else. And I looked at it and I had no money. And something called parenting said, “If you get caught with it, you’re going to embarrass your mother.” ‘
Great American exceptionalist Guiliani is really saying that broken father figures make excuses for crime and enable crime with classic blame-shifting and excuse making.
