The grand jury in Ferguson is set to rule on an indictment for Darren Wilson, sparking fears of more riots in the Missouri town. At the same time, President Obama is rumored to move forward on amnesty without the support of Congress. Should he wait? On his Facebook page last night, Glenn chided the president for taking on such a divisive issue at a point of high tension in the country.
No one who is being honest could say that the "right time" to sign an EO making "illegals" -"legal" would be on the same week Ferguson has riots in the streets.
If indeed the President does release an EO while Ferguson is on fire any thinking man must question his motives.
Please Mr. President, the country is at its breaking point. For the love of the country at least wait until this passes. We trust that you are not in want of race riots to spread.
If any of the groups that support you and are close to you -la raza- (the race) begin to march in the streets or begin to overturn the peace (I am sure there is no intent to do this on their part) do you hold any responsibility?
With what you said to organizers in St. Louis, according to the ny times, about keeping the protest on track, do you hold any responsibility if things turn violent?
America, ask yourself now before any trouble should begin, God forbid. If you were president, or if even Bill Clinton were president:
1. Would he or should YOU give Ferguson "organizers" the week prior to the grand jury results - a pep talk?
2. What would you or any president do if riots began? Compare actions as violence begins. If they are different, why?
3. Do you think it would be in the best interest of race relations or "domestic tranquility" to sign a highly charged EO in the same week?
4. Does a reasonable person know that an EO on illegal immigration will ignite passion and stirs the passion of fringe activists most likely to take to the streets?
Please pray for our president and for the republic.
Since Easter, so many times I read the news and hear in my head one phrase: And so it begins. Indeed I fear, it does.
