"Kiss my ass Jerry. It is only YOUR generation that considers that racist."
I've never spent much time where there was a lot of racism, but I've seen documentaries where white people called blacks, "boys", because they dared to look at a white women, or went into a whites only establishment. Lynched the black "boys". The police and judges were party to it. Maybe that was all fiction.
I'm just incredulous that anyone would call a black man a boy
And even more incredulous that someone would say "a left win extremist got all puffed up at the chance to scream racist"
I think we've taken that as far as we can
Looking at "2012 Benghazi Attack" in wikipedia, not always a perfect source but usually fairly objective. They have sources for all there statements:
"In Egypt, 2000 Salafist activists protested against the film Innocence of Muslims at 5pm EET (11am EDT) at the US embassy in Cairo."
This was just before Benghazi - so reasonable to think Behghazi was more of the same
"The attackers stated they were acting in response to the movie."
So even if the attack wasn't primarily because of that movie, there were news reports that it was.
The attack started at 9:40PM. At about 10PM "The Regional Security Office sounded the alarm and placed calls to the Benghazi CIA annex and the embassy in Tripoli, saying, "We're under attack, we need help, please send help now..." " At about the same time, the ambassador called someone.
A CIA team attempted a rescue but discovered people were dead. Unclear whether they actually saw the ambassador's body. Got back to their annex at 11:50PM. That was almost 2 hours after the attack was reported.
The CIA team was already in Benghazi. Any other group would have taken much longer.
And saying that Obama instructed any rescuer to abort is untrue, because a CIA team did attempt a rescue. I guess Obama didn't get to them : )
Any blame has to be for not having more security, having U.S. people there at all, getting envolved in Lybia civil war,...
As with all of these incidents, we should figure out how to avoid in the future, not find someone to lynch just to feel better. And especially not take advantage to politically attack your opponent. That is disrespectful to the people that have sacrificed.
You just can't let loose of the idea that Obama is responsible for this. No facts will change your mind. It's called "cognitive dissonance".
I think the Republicans that keep screaming about this know it's total B.S., just a strategy for "getting" Obama and the Democrats.
