Are we on the threshold of anarchy? Or the end of the United States, as we’ve known it, other than the early years of the Civil War? Obama didn’t shoot Michael Brown or personally torch and of the City’s buildings. But he did, in his inevitable way, justify the violence, with his statement that ‘anger was understandable.’ Has a President ever uttered such an irresponsible phrase. He tried to explain that but failed. Perhaps he came close after the Cambridge incident, but failed, even over beers. Perhaps with whatever he said while chumming up with the Army deserter Bowe Bergdahl’s parents at the White House, but failed. But close is relative, as we know from the game of horseshoes.
A blogger’s words:
The key word in all this discourse was that the family’s immediate reaction, including the call to violence, was “understandable.” Is this not the same word our president used when talking about the rage flaring in Ferguson? It’s also the same word a Georgetown University student recently used to describe the experience of being mugged at gunpoint.
“Understandable” is really taking off as the left ramps up the inanity even more (just when you thought it couldn’t go any higher).
So, America, it is now “understandable” for a person to lose all sense of self-control and reason and to call for the complete destruction of a town.
