Try as they might, Barack Obama’s apologists can no longer obscure the fact of his racial hatred and desire for racial vengeance. That character flaw is magnified by the outgoing president’s appointment of a cop-killer’s defender to a secure six-year post on the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights. That same lawyer, Debo Adgebile, was soundly rejected two years ago by Republicans and Democrats as Obama’s appointment to the Justice Department”s top civil rights post.
Obama’s fixation with squeezing Adgebile into any suitable U.S. government nook to help further agitate race relations is a twofold move: 1) It gives Obama revenge against the one segment of U.S. society he hates most — cops. The Fraternal Order of Police backed Donald Trump for president. 2) It gives Adgebile a big platform to exhort his ‘White Privilege’ theory to a broader audience — the increasingly nebulous concept that holds whites continue to have social privileges denied to non-whites.
Adgebile was the ardent champion of freedom for Mumia Abu-Jamal, convicted of killing Philadelphia police officer Daniel Faulkner in cold blood Dec. 9, 1981, 35 years ago and almost to the date of Adgebile’s new appointment. Adgebile was a lawyer with the NAACP’s Legal Defense Fund when his fervent defense of Abu-Jamal as a victim of racially-motivated prosecution made the man who shot Faulkner several times at point-blank range a darling of the radical Left who has parlayed that fame into a high-profile career behind bars.
The Adgebile appointment joins several other racially explosive strategies designed and put into place by Obama during the past eight years. One in particular, Obama’s rewrite of the 1968 Fair Housing Act, has been designed to inflict and perpetuate racial conflict and animosity in the nation’s largely tranquil suburban neighborhoods through forced desegregation. The racial-quota driven plan parades under the guise of ‘Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing.’ More on that travesty in coming issues of Eye On Why. –By Tom J. Edwards
