Obama Issues Warning Against Discrimination in Louisiana From Vacation at Martha’s Vineyard

There is nothing more irritating than to have someone seek to find problems where there is none. Those who strive to stir up strife where none exists should make both people wonder what the motive is behind such allegations.

It is even more outrageous that someone who is too busy vacationing to be of assistance is chiming in to cause trouble. This is how many have perceived the warning issued by Obama and the Department of Justice.

Trending: Science is Settled

President Obama has refused so far to survey the Louisiana flood disaster, but he did let state and local officials know that he’s watching to make sure they don’t engage in racial discrimination.

In a 16-page guidance issued Tuesday, the Obama administration, led by the Justice Department, warned Louisiana recipients of federal disaster assistance against engaging in “unlawful discrimination on the basis of race, color, or national origin (including limited English proficiency).”

While people are seeking to assist one another, the president thinks that this is the best time to cause division and stir strife. This is foolishness. It would seem that this is a tactic by the administration to divide our country further.

Needless to say, some Louisiana residents were offended, including the American Conservative’s Rod Dreher, who took umbrage at receiving an anti-discrimination lecture from Washington, D.C., as locals struggle to rescue, house and feed their neighbors.

“[E]verywhere you look you can find black folks and white folks loving on each other, helping each other through this crisis,” Mr. Dreher said in a Thursday post.

The problem is that the president and his administration are either so far out of touch with the situation and the people of Louisiana, or they have the intent to stir hate where there is none. It is amazing that Obama does not know that these people would react the way they have.

Either way, this is a good example of bad leadership. Unfortunately one
of many.
