Riot, rage, rampage and rebellion - Obama's legacy on fire in America!

A suburban St. Louis, Missouri city is still smoldering in hot ashes from riot, rage, rampage and rebellion this week, as charges of racism and police brutality are hurled into eagerly awaiting mainstream media cameras covering this lawlessness. The tragic death of Michael Brown an unarmed teenager was shot by police officer Darren Wilson, who was identified Friday as the officer involved in the fatal shooting according to the New York Times. Ferguson protesters claim that this was the match that lit the fuse for this summer's riotous rampage.

This is not civil rights but out of control criminal conduct. Rage, fear and paralyzing hopelessness are truly the root emotions that seek and find refuge in the plantation of welfare entitlement thinking that President Obama has provided poor, black and minority citizens in America. Every action and every single syllable that has been uttered to cause a curtain of race baiting demagoguery to be embraced in urban America can be traced back to Obama's pursuit of democratic black victimization electioneering.

It would be very easy for Americans to dismiss what is happening in burnt out areas of Ferguson as the actions of raging monsters of the night or of poor hapless victims of GOP or Bush abandonment. Not so fast, President Bush has been gone for five years and the GOP does not hold the governor's office.

Let's get real. People with hate that has been fed by a political system that liberals use to promote hopelessness and permanent government entitlement helped cultivate the bondage and captivity beliefs which trigger looting, robbing, burning and wholesale destruction. Any reason could have lit the fuse besides the shooting of an 18-year-old. In 1967, in Detroit, Michigan one of the worst urban riots in the nation's history that caused over 50 deaths resulted from a police raid of an unlicensed, after-hours bar.

Certainly, there are many legitimate causes and reasons for the feeling of disenfranchisement in any urban community in America. But is fire, looting and destruction the solution that leaves a community smoldering? In 1967, after the Detroit riot there were commissions and studies and many platitudes that were all arrived at the same conclusion: long term racism in housing, jobs, education and policing were factors, but death and destruction was certainly not the answer then or now. There were executive actions taken by then President Lyndon Johnson to deal with many of the root causes which triggered the riot in Detroit and in other cities across the nation.

There is no evidence that the solutions to what triggered the Ferguson riot will be found in this Oval Office. In fact, it is the exact opposite in terms of solutions. This president has spent more time distancing himself from urban America, including the enduring poverty, escalating teen deaths due to shootings and decimating joblessness that grips blacks and minority in his hometown of Chicago.

His only answer to urban American blacks and other minorities is to pander to their basic "give me free stuff" instincts which he has taken to a whole new level of plantation politics. He has riddled the need for "welfare to work" mandates that were passed by the Clinton administration and embraced by the Bush administration. So it is no small wonder that youths in Chicago, Detroit, Cleveland or Ferguson know nothing but hopelessness and unending despair, from their first "black" president.

Then of course this belief of hopelessness by presidential edicts is reinforced by Obama's own religious mentor of 20 years, The Rev. Jeremiah Wright of Trinity United Church of Christ on Chicago's south side. It was Rev. Wright who infamously stated, blacks should not sing " God Bless America" but "God damn America!" What is a young black person who has no true parental two parent household guidance, and statistically has a father who is missing, in jail or dead due to street violence, going to do?

"It is not your fault," is the message that he receives from this president who has strived for nearly five plus years to shepherd in a new victim-centered philosophy in urban America. So this young black man has been given an inoculation against self reliant individualism and initiative, and left him literally stripped of his selfhood. This is Obama's go to solution for urban youth.

Drop millions of illegal aliens into the mix, and black young people are not stupid. They can watch the news like everyone else and see that if they thought that they were second-class citizens before, now they are further down the rung on the ladder, thanks to their "black president."

Each day, the disenfranchised black teen sees a president who defends illegal aliens. This teen knows that they are not citizens, and are in fact lawbreakers that receive presidential help, executive order support and even billions of dollars of "humanitarian aid." Meanwhile they exist in the welfare squalor that their democrat leaders do not want to end and the president ignores.

Sure enough, on Election Day, Obama is their "homeboy." The teen and older adult street buddies who take the time to vote for the "free Obama stuff" the words and phrases of "Hope and Change" see the change becomes more plantation politics that bar their freedom. But he, like his mother and grandparents before him, drink the Kool-Aid that "the white man did this to you." He is told that his schools are bad and his job does not exist and his future is shattered because of the racism of the white man and of the police who are a lawless occupying force.

Of course the anger is real, but it is misdirected. Now is the time for the black residents of Ferguson as well as any other urban plantation in America to dismiss the theology of Obama hopelessness and abandon the race baiting catch phrases which continue to flourish like oozing venom from the likes of Rev. Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton and even the Commander-in-Chief of race spinning separatist beliefs, Barack Hussein Obama.

Now is the time for persons of true vision and transformational guidance that Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. spoke about concerning black rage and riots. Rev. King had a vision which he spoke eloquently and forcefully about in his "Dream" for America. Residents of Ferguson should read and understand his Dream for this nation and then read his feelings on rioting in America.

"The limitation of riots, moral questions aside, is that they cannot win and their participants know it. Hence, rioting is not revolutionary but reactionary because it invites defeat. It involves an emotional catharsis, but it must be followed by a sense of futility," said Martin Luther King, Jr.

Obama's legacy of hopelessness coupled with the effects of Obama's withering welfare racism must be called on the carpet in homes and churches in urban communities across America. The death of this innocent young man was tragic, but it should not be the cause for more tragedies in that city or in any other.
