Chicago school violence – where are the community organizers?

We know that one Chicago community organizer is heading to Denmark. I’m not certain where other organizers  are this week. The violence in the city of Chicago is disturbing, with officials expecting more than 30 murders of school kids during the next nine months.

More than 30 students were killed in Chicago during the last school year and it’s unacceptable. I’m not sure what kind of kid Derrion Albert was, but R.I.P. Derrion. More here.

From MSNBC yesterday morning…

Cell phone footage showing a group of teens viciously kicking and striking a 16-year-old honors student with splintered railroad ties has ramped up pressure on Chicago officials to address chronic violence that has led to dozens of deaths of city teens each year.

Many of the deaths were shootings, in a state that has some of the most restrictive gun laws in the country. Chicago has outlawed their possession unless they were registered with the city before 1982. Yes, possession of handguns has been basically outlawed in Chicago for more than 27 years.

I’m not suggesting high school kids under 18 should be allowed to carry a pistol for self defense, but don’t you dare suggest that outlawing ownership of firearms is the solution to the problem. In the Albert case, maybe outlawing possession of 2×6 boards should be considered … disturbing video … just warning you …

    This was a reenactment of how the Social Democrats plan to deal with those who dare to raise questions about the so called "health insurance/care reform bill" and dare to follow Hillary's advice about speaking truth to power.

    ….And this is the same Chicago that wants to host the 2016 Summer Olympics? I think this is the video that this branch of Foxnews in Chicago was told not to show during this week President Obama is in Denmark to bid for the 2016 games.

    Thank you for daring to post this topic. In the current political climate reporting about the rise in black violance runs a  risk of drawing accusations of right wing conspiracy . The left will surely cry that  racists are going back to the days of  Willie Horton commercials by portraying blacks as criminals. However,  Obama has ushered in an era of black violance . As president he is doing damn near nothing to stop it. This is what happens when a government from top down engages in race politics, telling  millions of black people that there is an organized racial conspiracy plotting against them. Obama asked  his closest allies  to play bad cop by talking race in the media so he can play good cop in saying his opposition is not about race. Obama thereby  gets to look above it all on one hand while  forcing the country to  think race on the other hand. As a consequence of this cynical game of power politics racial rage is flaring up. I have made a video to punctuate this fact we are now living in a Romper Stomper nation with the only differance being the color of the skin heads … .

    This video merely shows the techniques used for recruiting commnuity organizers.  Observe how quickly they gather for a common cause.  Look at their resourcefullness to find tools to advance their agenda.  With a goal in sight, they can be quite effective.  They fiercly promote their agenda and they don't stop until there mission is accomplished.  Then they scatter so as to be not accountable for their actions nor their relationships.

    Oh, I thought we were talking about Obama's campaign.
