Last week I asked if anyone recognized the name Jennifer Rivers. I doubt that many, if any, did. This week I ask you the same question about Amber Hailey.
These women have a lot in common: (1) indescribable grief because their sons are both dead; (2) they were both innocent victims; (3) they were murdered by thugs; (4) both live in Chicago; (5) the moms and sons are all victims of that non-PC “black on black” crime; and (6) the topper is that they are excluded from that new fad movement of #BlackLivesMatter.
Just like Jennifer Rivers, Amber Hailey didn’t get the national microphone and camera because the Rev. Al Sharpton couldn’t make any big headlines with it. Likewise, President Obama was unable to get a good photo-op hugging a grieving mom because he’d have to address the real problem, which would fly in the face of “the agenda” and certainly his former employee, Chicago Mayor Rahn Emanuel.
The Chicago Tribune tracked 1,355 deaths in Emanuel’s city between Jan. 1 and July 6. The Fourth of July weekend was another death-boom for an out-of-control city that lacks leadership.
Doors were opened for the activist’s hostile unrest using Trayvon Martin’s death in Florida in February 2012. The mission-driven, destructive activities were in full-on organized mode with Michael Brown’s death in Ferguson Missouri last August.
And proceed they did.
“Black Lives Matter” was the theme, and it became a noted hashtag with its co-creator, activist Opal Tometi, who runs Black Alliance for Just Immigration.
There are several groups akin to Tomei’s: Drug Policy Alliance (DPA), Samuel Dewitt Proctor Conference (Chicago), Make The Road New York, Equal Justice USA (New York) and Gamaliel Foundation, to name some.
Michael Brown was killed Aug. 9, 2014. Officer Wilson was officially “not indicted” on Nov. 24, 2014, and the New York Times said the Department of Justice recommended “that no civil rights charges be brought against (Officer Wilson).” Massive riots ensued; for those months on a daily basis by the protesters.
I have often asked how all of them managed to travel from other states and then live and eat day after day and month after month as they did in Ferguson. The city burned; more around the country mimicked, yet no one with a public microphone asked how so many people could thrive for months without valid sources of income.
The answer is liberal billionaire George Soros.
As noted in the Washington Times: “George Soros funds Ferguson protests, hopes to spur civil action.” Soros gave $33 million in 2014 alone to such groups. The disclosure is in the tax filings of Soros’ Open Society Foundation.
Jan. 14, 2015, The Washington Times notes that all of the aforementioned groups bused activists to Ferguson to “protest.”
The only humorous side of these liberal-paid, professional protesters is learning the protesters got stiffed on their promised pay-for-services-rendered. Newsmax reported in May that “at least some of the protesters who looted, rioted, burned buildings and overturned police cars in Ferguson, Missouri, last year were promised payment of up to $5,000 per month to join the protests.”
The Washington Times reported that protesters used Twitter to demand their promised wages from Missourians Organizing for Reform and Empowerment (MORE). They’re out of luck.
MORE, a branch of the loathsome ACORN (Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now), is bankrupt.
Race-baiter Al Sharpton and his kind make a living on ugly events, and it’s only worsened by a country’s president who encourages the mayhem as Obama did in November 2014 when he met with “various national activist leaders” telling them to “stay the course.”
Apparently Jennifer Rivers, Amber Hailey and a lot of others are not on that course’s map.
There are so many more – about 1,355 in Chicago in just the first six months of this year.
