There’s a reason Charles Barkley wasn’t invited to yesterday’s White House round table discussion about “mistrust of police in communities of color,” and opinions like this ensures he won’t be invited to future meetings either:

Former NBA star Charles Barkley recently called Ferguson looters “scumbags,” praised police officers who work in black neighborhoods, and said he supports the decision made by the grand jury not to indict officer Darren Wilson in the Michael Brown shooting.

During an interview on 97.5 The Fanatic in Philadelphia on Tuesday, the day after the Ferguson decision was announced, host Mike Missanelli asked Barkley about it and why “black America” doesn’t trust the ruling.

His response surprised some listeners.

“The true story came out from the grand jury testimony,” Barkley said, adding that he was made aware of “key forensic evidence, and several black witnesses that supported Officer Darren Wilson’s story…” He continued, “I can’t believe anything I hear on television anymore. And, that’s why I don’t like talking about race issues with the media anymore, because they (the media) love this stuff, and lead people to jump to conclusions. The media shouldn’t do that. They never do that when black people kill each other.”

He also called those who rioted after the decision was announced “scumbags,” and said “There is no excuse for people to be out there burning down people’s businesses, burning down police cars.”
[...]
“[W]e have to be really careful with the cops, because if it wasn’t for the cops we would be living in the Wild, Wild West in our neighborhoods,” he said. “We can’t pick out certain incidentals that don’t go our way and act like the cops are all bad…. Do you know how bad some of these neighborhoods would be if it wasn’t for the cops?”

That’s precisely what responsible government leaders should be saying in public loud and often — but there’s no chance in hell of Obama or Holder saying any such things. Never let a crisis go to waste. This was typical of how Obama and Holder operate: Monitor an incident with racial elements, wait for the “facts” to evolve until they fit a desired narrative, and then step in and “solve” that manufactured crisis.

I only needed to hear two words to know that Obama’s Ferguson “panel” was rigged — those two words were “Al” and “Sharpton.”

    Barkley has proven time and time again that he was raised right, which of course would preclude him from any of the race hustling shakedown meetings scheduled by this administration.

    All this presents is a 2014 version of Occupy Wall Street. Ginned up astroturfing to drive their [twisted] little narrative. Ironically, The Left has near total control over virtually ALL of our institutions/municipalities and actors.

    So WHO is it exactly they're supposedly 'investigating' again?

    In light of the NY grand jury decision and the comments made by Oblamo and DeBlabbo, if they are going to throw NYPD into re-education camps and not let them do their jobs – it is time for some "blue flu". 100% walkout – let the lib politicians deal with the thugs and criminals and see how they handle themselves. And also pull all protective detail from the mayor's family – F&%k them – they can fend for themselves.
