From the good comrades at Time, a great story of oppression, repression, organizing and dissent as can only happen in America. One of the millions of activists in America, just happens to be a Community Organizer (racist) in Chicago. She was invited by President Obama to drop in for a beer and an open and free wheeling discussion about BLM. She was, quite naturally, appalled at the idea.

On Thursday, the activist‚ who has led protests against police brutality and other issues through Black Lives Matter Chicago, declared the meeting would be little more than a photo boondoggle for the President. She wrote:
I was under the impression that a meeting was being organized to facilitate a genuine exchange on the matters facing millions of Black and Brown people in the United States. Instead, what was arranged was basically a photo opportunity and a 90-second sound bite for the president. I could not, with any integrity, participate in such a sham that would only serve to legitimize the false narrative that the government is working to end police brutality and the institutional racism that fuels it. For the increasing number of families fighting for justice and dignity for their kin slain by police, I refuse to give its perpetrators and enablers political cover by making an appearance among them.
She couldn't stop and continued by writing that the federal government cannot be counted on to bring about the change she’s calling for in America. “We assert that true revolutionary and systemic change will ultimately only be brought forth by ordinary working people, students and youth – organizing, marching and taking power from the corrupt elites.”

The black Chicago community organizer who is running the country and the black Attorney General who just happens to be black, have not yet responded to Pulley’s letter.

Mutatis mutandis, I guess black is the new black and we don't use African-American anymore. You never see anybody demanding that AALM.

It used to be eyes on the prize. Now it seems to be eyes in a place that is solar-deficient.

It is so rich. Like all the other 3rd world dictators, Obama is going to kick the dust of Chicago off his feet and buy a mansion someplace nice. That seems to happen to all the 'revolutionary' leaders that survive their dethronement.

It is impossible to reason with morons. Did I tell you about the two old idiots at UH Manoa that were standing knee deep in the rain outside the bookstore urging the students (and me) to revolt and turn America into a socialist paradise like Hector Chavez did to Venezuela?
