- $10,000 Reward For "Apprehending" Andy Stern
Since we aren't going to be worrying about legal niceties any more in Obama's transformed America, I'd like to put out a $10,000 reward for the "apprehension" of former SEIU head Andy Stern. Has he committed some crime? None that I know of. But I don't care for the guy's politics and I think America would be much better off if he was forced to spend his time hiding from a gang of reward seeking rednecks than advising the Obama Whitehouse on domestic policy.
The New Black Panther Party has put a similar "Reward" on the head of George Zimmerman, the Florida youth who according to police reports, shot Treyvon Martin in self defense last month. So what's the difference between my reward on the head of Andy Stern and the NBPP reward on George Zimmerman? Well for starters, my reward doesn't specify "Dead or Alive" like the NBPP offer initially did. But more important, George Zimmerman isn't a Washington power player - he's just a Latino kid from central Florida with no juice whatsoever. Among other things, that makes him easy pickings for the racial hucksters looking to gain power by threatening him.
Andy Stern though IS a Washington power player, so before the Secret Service and Eric Holders thoroughly racialized justice department have to incur the expense of tracking me down and arresting me, let me say that I'm only kidding about the bounty on Andy Stern's head. I only said it to prove a point, and would not like to go to federal prison.
But this then begs the question - If I would go to prison for putting a bounty on Andy Stern (and I don't think anyone doubts that I would), why aren't the heads of the New Black Panther Party being arrested as well? Is this the kind of thing Obama was promising when he said he would 'radically transform' America? Did he mean that if you are black or a political ally of the people in power then you can ignore the law as you see fit, while if you are not, you had better watch yourself? Did he mean he would finally empower those racially motivated radical groups that would turn America into a new Liberia if they had the chance?
NO? then why aren't those guys being arrested?
Based on the 'evidence' from Florida, it's entirely possible that this whole shooting mess was simply a tragic mistake. Zimmerman suspected Martin, Martin suspected Zimmerman, things got physical, then they got out of hand, and Martin ended up dead. That's a shame, but it does not automatically mean that Zimmerman acted outside the law. He might have - I don't know. I only know what I read in the press and that's been designed to distort the issue, not cast light on it.
But as it stands he has not been charged with any crime. And since that's so, I have to believe that offering a $10,000 Reward for his 'apprehension' is an illegal act. So the leaders of the NBPP should all be arrested.
