Barack Obama har utmerket seg ved å «stå opp» for svarte som er rammet av vold, enten det er fra medborgere eller politiet. Han har identifisert seg med dem, og sagt: – Det kunne vært meg.

Marc Thiessen gjør en interessant påpekning i Washington Post:

After Trayvon Martin was killed, President Obama spoke emotionallyabout his death, declaring “this could have been my son.”

After Michael Brown was killed, Obama promised to ensure that “justice is done” and declared: “We lost a young man, Michael Brown, in heartbreaking and tragic circumstances. He was 18 years old. His family will never hold Michael in their arms again.” He even sent administration officials to attend Brown’s funeral.

After Freddie Gray was killed, Obama walked out to the Rose Garden anddeclared: “We have some soul-searching to do. This has been going on for a long time. This is not new, and we shouldn’t pretend that it’s new.”

Men så blir en hvit kvinne drept av en illegal, kriminell innvandrer i San Fransisco. Hvor er Obama da? Han er taus.

But after Kathryn Steinle was killed July 1, allegedly by an illegal immigrant with seven felony convictions, Obama said . . . nothing.

No promises of “justice.” No calls for “soul-searching.”

His silence has been deafening.

Hvorfor er Obama taus? Er gruppetilhørighet forklaringen? Noen vil sikkert mene det. Men Thiessen har en annen: Obamas taushet kommer av at hans administrasjon har satt tusenvis av illegale innvandrere på frifot, og flere av dem har begått grov kriminalitet. Det ønsker ikke Obama oppmerksomhet rundt.

Why has Obama been so reticent to speak out? Perhaps it is because any soul-searching in this case would require him to confront the fact that his administration has been releasing tens of thousands of dangerous illegal immigrants with criminal convictions into our communities — including many who have gone on to commit murder.

At det er policy vil si at administrasjonen ikke endrer praksis, selv om erfaringen tilsier at det burde vært gjort. I tidsrommet 2010-2014 slapp immigrasjonsmyndighetene ut 121 kriminelle innvandrere som endte opp med å begå drap. Det er ganske mange.

It got little notice, but on May 28, Sarah Saldana, director of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, admitted in a letter to Sens. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) and Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) that between fiscal years 2010 and 2014, the Obama administration had released “121 unique criminal aliens who had an active [deportation] case at the time of release and were subsequently charged with homicide-related offenses.”

Think about that: 121 times over the past four years, the administration has released an illegal immigrant with prior criminal convictions who went on to be charged with murder. That is one every 12 days.

ICE-sjefen bekreftet at de heller ikke varsler lokale myndigheter om at illegale med kriminell saker under behandling blir sluppet ut i deres nabolag. Det gjelder også seksualovergripere.

ICE also does not routinely notify local authorities when it releases illegal immigrants who are sex offenders. Last month, a Boston Globe investigation found that between 2008 and 2012, ICE released 424 sex offenders into communities across the country — including “convicted rapists, child molesters and kidnappers” — and that “immigration officials have released them without making sure they register with local authorities as sex offenders.” The paper further found that “At least 34 of the 424 released sex offenders . . . were back in jail as of last month, state records show, some for heinous crimes committed after ICE released them.”

Når man forstår at løslatelsene og mangel på varsling skyldes en bevisst politikk, kommer Obamas liberale kriminalomsorg i et noe annet lys. Ikke rart Obama ikke vil snakke om «sakene».

I nyhetene i dag figurerte han fordi han benådet 46 narkodømte som var dømt til livsvarig. Obama sa det var urettferdig, de fortjente en ny sjanse. Det er USAs motto, sa han. Men ser man Obama politikk fra en annen vinkel er den ikke like progressiv.

Han er ikke alene. Høyesterett har felt dom for at illegale innvandrere skal løslates hvis ikke hjemlandet deres vil ta imot dem innen 180 dager.

In 2013, the Obama administration released 36,007 illegal immigrants with criminal convictions — 1,000 of whom were subsequently convicted of other crimes after their release. Last year they released 30,558 such immigrants. According to the House Judiciary Committee, only 8 percent of those were due to the Supreme Court’s decision in Zadvydas v. Davis, which requires that illegal immigrants be released after 180 days if their home countries won’t take them back. The other 92 percent were released because of Obama’s policies.

Denne liberale politikken gir seg mange utslag. Blant oppfatninger om at islam betyr fred. Det ligger enorme ambisjoner bak Obamas politikk. Det finnes en innstilling og holdning bak som dikterer liberalitet. Til enhver pris.

I San Fransisco har politiet en politikk med «asylby»-status, dvs illegale kan søke tilflukt der. De blir ikke sendt tilbake.

Steinles morder visste at politiet i San Fransisco ikke ville utlevere ham.

Why didn’t Obama come out and condemn the San Francisco police’s refusal to cooperate with his own administration’s request? He calls out local police departments all the time for everything from alleged racial bias to acting “stupidly.” Why not in this case? Perhaps it’s because Obama opposes cracking down on “sanctuary city” policies such as the one that got Kathryn Steinle killed.

Liberale som blir dogmatiske, stenger ute det som forstyrrer. Hvis Obama skulle kritisert San Fransisco-politiet på samme måte som han kritiserte politiet i Baltimore eller Ferguson, så måtte han tatt et oppgjør med sin egen politikk.

Det er det ingen tegn til.

Obama nøler ellers ikke med å kjempe for våpenkontroll, eller med å kritisere politiet. Det er ikke mangel på «mot» som hindrer ham.

After Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown and Freddie Gray were killed, Obama had liberal public policy points he wanted to make — about gun control, “stand your ground” laws, racial profiling and police bias. In the Steinle case, there are no issues Obama wants to highlight — because his administration supports the policies that led to her death.

No wonder Obama is silent.

Den ulike tilnærmingen Thiessen beskriver, er forklaringen på at Donald Trump stiger på meningsmålingene. Det er ikke fordi han kom med rasistiske uttalelser, slik mediene ynder å fremstille det som. Det er fordi han setter ord på det Obama er taus om.
