Cartoons and commentary by Stilton Jarlsberg at Hope ‘n Change.
Just to make sure everyone knows where the battle lines are drawn, Attorney General Loretta Lynch went before a Muslim group to announce that she now intends to prosecute anyone who voices anti-Muslim opinions which “edge toward violence,” whatever the heck that means.
But apparently, calls for violence are still peachy keen and totally legal as long as the persons making those calls are of the same race and political disposition as the president and his legal toady.
How else to explain the fact that Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan isn’t on Lynch’s radar for his frequent exhortations that white people need to die? And remember the black marchers following Al “Freddie’s Fashion Mart” Sharpton who chanted, “What do we want? DEAD COPS! When do we want them? NOW!” Days later, two officers were shot to death in their patrol car by a man who had said that this kind of anti-cop rhetoric was his inspiration.
But is Lynch prosecuting any of those people? Absolutely not. Rather, she’s just announced that she’s kicking off a big investigation to prosecute Irving school officials and police officers who believed “See something, Say something” was a good idea when Ahmed the Suspicious Timing Device Maker flashed his “invention” all over a school then refused to talk about it.
Let’s be clear: Hope n’ Change never has and never will support or tolerate calls for violence against any religious or ethnic group. But what Lynch is doing serves only to further divide our nation by applying unequal standards of law.
