Writes journalist Jodi Swan, “At a press conference on Thursday (August 14, 2013), Obama took a break from the golf course to make a statement on the situation in Iraq, as well as the chaos going on in Ferguson, Missouri. As usual, he sided with the black community, going so far as to say that the violent rioters must be allowed to exercise their Constitutional right to protest.
Obama chastised the efforts of St. Louis law enforcement, saying, “Police have clashed with people protesting.” Obviously, when people are becoming violent and start destroying property, it is law enforcement’s job to step in. But Obama sees things differently.
We all know that there has been nothing peaceful about these riots. People have been arrested and businesses have been decimated by violent looters, but Obama wants to make sure that the rights of black people to re-enact Planet of the Apes are not infringed.”
