It is beginning: The Charleston young man talked about starting a race war, but he is only a pawn in the real game. The game is what we see when President Obama begins trying to capitalize on this kind of event and now the Rev. Louis Farrakhan.
An influential figure in the Islamic religion in the very country he has freedoms not afforded to like-minded people in other parts of the world, this prominent figure now talks of war with the United States. Talking about destroying the American flag. How much of this rhetoric do we listen to before we realize that terror begins with people spewing hatred?
This is the kind of talk that gets people put in jail for inciting mob violence or terrorism. Any wonder that all the time Obama has been talking about taking guns away, gun sales have skyrocketed. People see the evil coming from these prominent people and are getting ready to defend themselves. Tensions increase when incidents give our (dear leaders) talking points.
Terror begins with influential people stirring it with their mouth. If these bad mouths would shut up the rest of us would live in peace.
