OMG! Obama Met With Civil Rights Leaders About Ferguson

Jim Hoft, the dumbest man on the internet and possibly the most dishonest too, is outraged — OUTRAGED! — that President Obama “met with Ferguson activists” at the White House. And of course it’s a conspiracy, a “secret” meeting that was “hidden” by the media. He puts up this picture:

FergusonLooting

See, he wants you to believe that these are the “Ferguson activists” that Obama met with and that he supports looting and violence. Then he quotes the New York Times, which makes absolutely clear that he met with national civil rights activists and urged them to help keep the protests peaceful:

At times, there has been a split between national civil rights leaders and the younger leaders on the ground here, who see their efforts as more immediate, less passive than an older generation’s. But some here said relations have improved in recent weeks.

Some of the national leaders met with President Obama on Nov. 5 for a gathering that included a conversation about Ferguson.

According to the Rev. Al Sharpton, who has appeared frequently in St. Louis with the Brown family and delivered a speech at Mr. Brown’s funeral, Mr. Obama “was concerned about Ferguson staying on course in terms of pursuing what it was that he knew we were advocating. He said he hopes that we’re doing all we can to keep peace.”

Wow. How…terrible of him. Of course the right wing blogosphere has exploded with rage over what was, in reality, exactly what the president ought to be doing. Because what else do they have but faux outrage? And it probably goes without saying that the commenters on Hoft’s blog were spewing stupid like a gatlin gun:

Obama the criminal is now an advisor for race rioters? How many Obama crimes against the people of this nation must we tolerate? The Obama regime has set race and class relations in the U.S.A. back 150 years. This type of race/class division is text and verse from the Communist Manifesto. IMPEACH OBAMA!…

it’s pretty obvious now that this will become a huge false flag, intended to create a massive rift between blacks and whites. this administration is hoping it will lead to armed conflict so they can try to disarm the country.

Same paranoid nonsense, different day.

    No problems – probably not many more than a hundred million Americans would agree with Hoft.

    A picture paints a thousand words. In this case, it’s “Nigger nigger nigger!” three hundred and thirty three times.

    You’re so vain, you probably think this riot’s about you.

    @3 Eric, for making that song get stuck in my head I will hate you for the rest of today.

    @2, Modus: You’re short a word. May I suggest “thug”?

    And of course it’s a conspiracy, a “secret” meeting that was “hidden” by the media.

    So “secret” and so hidden…that Hoft knew all about it…Go figure!

    Pants on the ground, pants on the ground, looking like a fool with your pants on the ground.

    Weren’t they just outraged that Obama wasn’t doing enough to calm tensions in Ferguson? Why, yes they were:

    Funny how the right-wingers have no problem with the KKK volunteering to ‘help’ the Ferguson cops ‘keep order’.

    Adviser for race rioters? I don’t remember him giving the police department an attaboy and go to it.

    Trebuchet @ 5:

    So, it’s sorta kinda like duck-duck-goose?

    Wait. Didn’t the Communist Manifesto say that the black/white divide was created by the capitalists to divide the proletariat against itself?

    Would deciding whether Obama’s a commie or a puppet of the bourgeois be too much to ask of this lot?

    it would be kinda cool if barack obama was really gone be giving advice to rioters.

    Interesting that he claims this sets back race and class relations 150 years. That would make it 1864.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1864_in_the_United_States

    The Battle of Gettysburg in Jury 1863 was the high water mark of the confederacy but the south was still winning battles into 1864. Toward the end of 1864 not even the most dedicated southerner could avoid the evidence that the south had lost the war and in April 1865 the war was over.

    In many ways we are living through a redo of the civil war made necessary because the reconstruction was so badly botched.
