Even Lies Are Segregated In America . . .
Does anyone believe that Boehner is insisting on "a conversation" with the President because he expects to make the President a tempting offer or, he thinks the President will offer him something he cannot refuse? I'll bet that doesn't have the ring of truth for most people who have been watching his behavior up till now. So, then, why does John Boehner want to meet with the President so badly? Probably to perpetuate lies . . .
There's a unique brand of lies that are applied to people of African descent by racist. They are accomplished by gaining access to the person to be lied about, in order to be proximate enough to claim access to information, which will be the basis for lies.
If you don't believe me, I've got a public example that proves my point, namely, the Fort Hood Shooting.
On November 5, 2009, Chuck Medley, was the supervisor of the two police officers, Mark Todd and Kimberly Munley, who responded to a report of shooting at Fort Hood. Medley arrived on the scene shortly after Nidal Malik Hasan had been shot, and neutralized; and Kimberly Munley, wounded, and barely conscious. Therefore, he could not have received a description of the heroics attributed to Kimberly, from her, and none of the witness statements that were recorded at that time, identified Kimberly Munley as the person responsible for ending Hasan's rampage. And while he did not acknowledge talking to Mark Todd, who could believe that a person, in charge of the performance of employees, at a highly publicized and historic event, did not ask the available employee, that being Mark Todd, what happened.
I believe that Mark Todd told Chuck Medley that he shot Hasan, and Chuck Medley lied about what he had been told, and attributed Mark Todd's performance to Kimberly Munley. Kimberly Munley received it, like it was gift, that she was entitled to. Kind of reminiscent of slavery, one person does the work, and somebody else gets the benefit. But very unlike capitalism, that rewards merit . . .
Proximity to Mark Todd, enabled Chuck Medley to revise information about him, to suite his purpose, which seems to have been an attempt to avoid a contradiction to racist ideology, which Mark Todd's heroic actions were. Those actions are also a contradiction to sexism, which goes to show that Chuck Medley was willing to give a white women undeserved credit, while he was unwilling to give a Diasporan credit he deserved.
More significant than Chuck Medley's likely behavior, is the fact that he got away with it. There is no indication that he was formally challenged by anyone. Which reflects the social vulnerability in which Diasporans operate.
Racist dare such outrageous behavior, because they expect support from the many people who share the same sentiments, a conspiracy of the heart; and they count on media to apply the power of definition, on their behalf.
Kimberly Munley did not repent, as she stand's poised to collect money, as a Fort Hood Victim, using her fake heroism, as authority to claim that the President "betrayed" her. And why wouldn't she when, three years after Mark Todd's achievement has been established by ballistic test, and evidence received in a Court of Law, ABC News put on a racially grounded display of contempt for truth, by placing Mark Todd and Kimberly Munley in the same visual frame, while ascribing his heroism to her . . . If you did not know Mark Todd's role, and what he looks like, you would have believed that he just happened to be standing next to Kimberly, at the State of the Union, that ABC said "provided a hero's welcome," for her only, even though it was for both of them . . .
Eventually, Mark Todd's person was inserted into the "achievements" ascribed to Kimberly Munley since, they could not say that she did anything heroic, without telling a blatant lie so, they used the proximity trick. Without mentioning Mark Todd's name, they included him in the heroic behavior, that they intend to be credited to Kimberly alone, but that was performed by Mark, "she and her partner ended the rampage." The handle "partner is used, so that all of the credit goes to her, and no one remembers his name. . .
I think John Boehner, wants a "conversation" with the President, so that he can get close enough to commit a proximity lie. Like Kimberly Munley used proximity to Mark Todd, to leverage the lie of her aggressive pursuit of Hasan, Boehner wants to get close enough to the President, to shift the blame for the government shutdown onto him.
