Is Obama Behind Coordination of Police Attacks Monday Night in Boston, Seattle?

Was that Karl Marx who wrote "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."

No, it was our founding fathers.

What does the headline mean? Attack? Obama coordinating? Lets not be so quick to fall into the victim mentality. The movement is succeeding! What is depicted in the YouTube is beautiful!

(I am largely re-posting this from a post at Polticialgates. Sorry.)

I am not sure if your headline actually matches your text because...
I think it is a mistake to think Obama has complete control over his administration. He could. He should but I rather doubt it. Why? Government is simply unmanageable and corrupted nowadays, in both parties. (But particularly obvious in the Republican party.)

I still support Obama. Because in my heart, I still believe in Obama but I think he needs to get out in front of this matter. He has called for political action and here it is. And now he doesn't know what to do with it.

My main objection with the president is that he is an extremely rhetorical president. (He loves to hear the sound of his own voice) but I think he has to match his great ideas with great actions.

As an imperfect model, one can see how Kennedy negotiated the particularly volatile situation with MLK.
"In a moment of stunning political pressure inside his own camp, candidate Kennedy reached out to Martin Luther King when he was convicted of a probation violation after participating in a diner sit-in in Atlanta, Georgia. Forever the political pragmatist, Kennedy saw the light, with a big push from Bobby, and interceded on behalf of King to get him released from Reidsville Prison."

Mind you, this was BEFORE the 1960 election. (October 25, 1960) He took a great risk at alienating the southern vote for the possibility of gaining the minority vote. But more importantly he did it because it was the right thing to do. I wonder if Obama would have that much courage.

"I think that the democratic process, free speech, the ability for folks to peacefully dissent, all those are universal values and need to be respected." Obama speaking on Iran.
But why does this ONLY apply in Iran or Egypt or Libya? And not San Francisco or New York? If it's a question of legality then the governments there considered those protests just as illegal. In Boston it is somehow a different story, they want us to believe. In Atlanta, it is not the same? Dallas cannot be considered the same thing?

In Iran and in Egypt and Libya, it was not so much a protest against the autocratic rule, but against the pervasive corruption of government and society in general. It is very much the same matter here. It is taxation without representation and representation without taxation.

Not Obama Phil....the people who control Obama, the Illuminati, Committee of 300, or the New World Order, take your pick.

I think that we are witnessing the start of the decline & fall of America, both parties are corrupt beyond all repair....

So I advise voting for the only two honest people in the 2012 POTUS race, Ron Paul on the right, and Dennis Kucinich on the left.

Thank You.

I dont buy the paranoia stuff.
Theyre trying to show how expensive it is nowadays to protest, and then face arrest.
The last time this happened during the 60's life was way much less expensive.

Hey running up 'cost' is the capitalist way.

Anyone paying attention to the 2008 campaign would know that many, especially in the upper echelons of police departments across the nation are heavily Republican supporters. Even in my state which is heavily blue, the police union supported the Republican candidates - who didn't win thankfully.

I won't be surprised if many of the rank & file join the protest on their time off. They've joined the protest in WI even though their union had supported Walker and he didn't strip them of their rights because of that support. The white shirted officers seem to be the only ones beating up & macing the protesters while the rank & file didn't look happy about it.

President Obama is "behind this?" What have you been drinking?

Check out the number and size of Wall Street donations that flow into Police Dept. coffers - across the nation, particularly in the large cities.
