Default WTH? Government aides in Ferguson but not Rochester?

Holy cow what is going on here. Aides to the president, (government employees) are going to attend the funeral of Michael Brown but nobody attended the funeral services for James Foley. What is important in our world anymore. A alleged criminal that allegedly attacks a police officer and is shot in self defense get government officials attending his service, while an American journalist that is executed and beheaded does not. Talk about some jacked up priorities in our country.

WTH?

Consider how the administration feels about journalists, now that public approval ratings are in the toilet.

Also consider that an election is only a few weeks away. Gotta keep the electorate happy.

If you were Foley's parents, would YOU want any of these DBs in attendance? I can promise . . . I'd ask a friend or two to make sure ALL of them were kept far away.

All this does is show the American people that those of race are more important than those not.
It's amplifying race issues rather than helping resolve them. Lot of resentment.

There is another possible explanation- the White House asked both families about attending those funerals. The family looking for national attention was the one that said "Yes".

Variation of Occam's Razor- "Don't assume behavior is based on malice and evil when it can be explained by ignorance or greed."

This. I listened to his parents' press conference and they are not fans.

Obie's administration is filled with racists and muzzies. Obie seems tight with the muslim brotherhood and has put several members in high positions. Additionally, he and many of his minions are racists. Naturally the Browns would enjoy the extra publicity. The Foley's ~ why would they want that trash at this time (or any other)?

there are multiple possible explanations, but the fact that Obama has mentioned this specific issue himself versus any other "race" issues speaks volumes.

Damn, You'd think MLK had died again


Crowds Gather for Michael Brown's Funeral

A special section at the front of the church was roped off for well-known ministers and politicians from across the country, including Rev. Jesse Jackson, Sen. Claire McCaskill (D., Mo.) and Rep. Maxine Waters (D., Calif.), who is from St. Louis. Monday's service was nationally televised, and Rev. Al Sharpton delivered a eulogy. Several Obama administration officials attended, including Marlon Marshall, deputy director of the White House's office of public engagement and a St. Louis native who went to high school with Mr. Brown's mother.

Among the guests expected to attend the service were Martin Luther King III and the Rev. Bernice King; the Rev. Jesse Jackson; the families of Trayvon Martin and Sean Bell; and celebrities Spike Lee, Diddy and Snoop Lion.

"Michael Brown does not want to be remembered for riots," Rev. Sharpton said. "He wants to be remembered as the one that made America deal with how we are going to police in the United States."

Absolutely. Nobama's boys attended but they specifically ask the Governor of Missouri to not attend. You and I pulled that bullshit and they would be screaming racism.

If this comes as any surprise at all to you, you plainly have not been keeping up. There are more govt. officials at the "Gentle Giant's" funeral than there were at Margaret Thatchers.

The ass clown in chief knows what side his bread is buttered on.

Nope, keeping up extremely well, just had to phrase it correctly so it was not considered a "political statement" by the good ole mods.
