Obama to Unleash ‘Community Organizers’ on Crime-Filled Cities

DID YOU KNOW? red Rubber Stamp over a white background. BasicEDITOR’S COMMENT: While on the surface, this appears to just be more of President Obama’s ongoing constant efforts to stir civil unrest, it is really part of his overall plan for redistribution. Here he continues to take large amounts of taxpayer dollars, (taxes actually paid by working Americans) and hand them off to his political cronies and community organizers (generally either non-working or non-tax-paying Americans or both) in order to demonstrate the need for even more funding to offset the obvious ‘inequality’. And, the Republican leadership, as usual, says nothing!

Critics decry president’s handout to ACORN-style agitators.

The Department of Justice announced it will send millions of dollars to various community-activist groups to combat urban crime and reduce tensions between racial minorities and the police.

But critics believe such policies will only fuel further unrest by funding many of the so-called “community organizers” responsible for creating anti-police sentiment in American cities.

 

The Justice Department also announced $163 million in grants to be distributed for the purpose of “building trust with the community.” As part of its effort to execute the recommendations of the president’s task force, the Justice Department is looking for 10 localities to participate in a “collaborative reform” process to serve as a model for the rest of the country, emphasizing “procedural justice” and “implicit bias training.”

A list of grants awarded by the Justice Department in 2013 indicate federal funding has been and will continue to be directed toward activist groups described by critics as “racial agitators.”

For example, “Community Policing Development Awards” were given in 2013 to programs including “Building Trust With Communities of Color” from the Vera Institute of Justice, the “Race and Social Justice Initiative” at the Portland Police Department and “Racial Reconciliation, Truth-Telling, and Police Legitimacy” at John Jay College.

Matthew Vadum, an expert in left-wing activist groups and the author of “Subversion, Inc.,” warns such federal funding invariably finds its way into the hands of progressive activists who personally profit from increased community tensions.

“After attacking police as stupid, racist, vicious and thuggish almost non-stop throughout his presidency, now he suddenly cares about police officers and the communities they serve. Now he wants to throw millions of taxpayer dollars at ACORN-like groups and professional left-wing agitators whose calling in life is to generate civil unrest,” he said.

This means that people like the president’s point man on race relations, riot organizer Al Sharpton, will get his hands on lots of government money. This money won’t actually help anyone except for the often-violent Saul Alinsky-inspired community organizers who have been living high off the hog ever since one of their own took up residence in the White House.”

Civil-rights activist Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson, author of “Scam: How the Black Leadership Exploits Black America,” argues the Obama administration will use grants to reward political allies instead of fighting crime and helping the black community.

Peterson told WND: “Barack Obama and his cronies helped create this problem and now they’re offering all the wrong solutions. The $163 million will not go to fix inner city issues; the bulk of the money will be used to pay off Barack Obama’s political cronies.

Obama knows the money won’t be used to rebuild the black community – the only thing it will do is empower his far-left political allies. This is an example of redistribution of wealth. ACORN, Al Sharpton’s National Action Network, the NAACP and corrupt black churches will benefit from this plan.”

Elder observed acidly: “As to the $163 million, a cynic would call it hush money. I guess it’s cheaper than giving them ‘space to destroy.’”     (my emphasis)
