Again, race riots and businesses in flames aren’t failures of state policy. They are the results of state policy. (The same could be said about mass immigration.)
The Department of Justice announced it will send millions of dollars to various community-activist groups to combat urban crime and reduce tensions between racial minorities and the police.
But critics believe such policies will only fuel further unrest by funding many of the so-called “community organizers” responsible for creating anti-police sentiment in American cities…
A list of grants awarded by the Justice Department in 2013 indicate federal funding has been and will continue to be directed toward activist groups described by critics as “racial agitators.”
For example, “Community Policing Development Awards” were given in 2013 to programs including “Building Trust With Communities of Color” from the Vera Institute of Justice, the “Race and Social Justice Initiative” at the Portland Police Department and “Racial Reconciliation, Truth-Telling, and Police Legitimacy” at John Jay College.
Matthew Vadum, an expert in left-wing activist groups and the author of “Subversion, Inc.,” warns such federal funding invariably finds its way into the hands of progressive activists who personally profit from increased community tensions.
“President Obama is no stranger to irony, or hypocrisy for that matter,” Vadum said in an interview with WND.
“After attacking police as stupid, racist, vicious and thuggish almost non-stop throughout his presidency, now he suddenly cares about police officers and the communities they serve. Now he wants to throw millions of taxpayer dollars at ACORN-like groups and professional left-wing agitators whose calling in life is to generate civil unrest,” he said.
“This means that people like the president’s point man on race relations, riot organizer Al Sharpton, will get his hands on lots of government money. This money won’t actually help anyone except for the often-violent Saul Alinsky-inspired community organizers who have been living high off the hog ever since one of their own took up residence in the White House.”[Obama to unleash ‘community organizers’ on crime filled cities, WND, May 19, 2015]
One of the great strategic advantages Open Borders groups and left wing activists enjoy is that they are funded by their enemies. VDARE.com is not going to be receiving taxpayer funding anytime soon, but pro-amnesty groups and various racial hucksters enjoy luxurious lifestyles after they are essentially paid off by the political class [Unlimited government and the parasite class, by Gregory Hood, Radix Journal, March 15, 2015]. This is also why it is so important that you continue to support us – our movement is a populist, people’s movement, and the more you help us, the more we can do.
If “limited government” conservatives and libertarians were serious about spending, you would hear something from them about government funding of left wing activists. But the “Liberty Movement” is too busy helping the statists by lobbying for more immigration.
