Yesterday, December 20, Saturday, in Bedford-Stuyvestant, Brooklyn, two New York City police officers were executed in broad daylight by Ismaaiyl Abdullah Brinsley, who boasted via social media that he was “putting wings on pigs today” in revenge for the deaths of Michael Brown and Eric Garner.
During a BET interview, President Obama lectured that police shoot black men because “they have a subconscious fear of folks who look different.”
With all due respect to the race-hustler-in-chief, the fear is of black criminals, and it is not subconscious. It is a rational response to the homicide rate in America which is overwhelmingly committed by young black men — against other young black men.
Early this morning, a man who like Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown or Eric Garner, could have been Obama’s son if he had a son, entered Chabad-Lubavitch headquarters in Crown Heights, NY—BTW, what happened to basic security measures?—and stabbed yeshiva student Levi Yitzchak Rosenblat, 22, in the neck and abdomen during shachareet, morning prayers.
Mostly, the poor.
Of course there are a handful of hipsters who sport clownish pork pie hats, and defiantly puff away, viewing themselves as postmodern James Deans.
But really, it’s the poor and blue collar who indulge in the liberal sin of tobacco. Meanwhile, their liberal betters proudly sweat in gleaming gyms, or contort themselves into narcissistic bliss on candy-colored yoga mats.
