Mr. President, white lives matter — when you need their votes
Last night, on Fox News shows, The O’Reilly Factor and Megyn Kelly, the parents and brother of Kate Steinle, respectively, were interviewed. Ms. Steinle was murdered July 1 in San Francisco in broad daylight, by an illegal immigrant who had already been deported five times from this country.
Watching the parents talking about their deceased daughter was especially wrenching as the father looked as though he was about to break down several times. On Megyn Kelly’s show, Ms. Steinle’s brother spoke in quiet tribute to her.
Since Kate’s murder and burial, no Administration official nor the White House has commented on the crime, nor have they placed a call to Kate’s parents or family. This is especially in stark contrast in light of the DOJ/FBI response, multiple pressers held by the Administration, as well as federal agency heads’ appearances at the funerals of Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown and Freddie Gray.
Today, in an appearance before the House Judiciary Committee, Department of Homeland Chief, Jeh Johnson, continued the proverbial pouring of salt into the wound. As reported by The Daily Caller, not only did Johnson pronounce Ms. Steinle’s name incorrectly “stine-ul”, but the following exchange took place as well:
“Has the administration reached out to the Steinle family, to your knowledge?” Ohio U.S. Rep. Steve Chabot asked.
“To who?” a perplexed Johnson asked.
“To the family of the woman who brutally murdered by this individual who had committed seven different felonies in four different states and my understanding had been deported, kept coming back, has the administration reached out to that family?” Chabot said.
“I’m sorry, I don’t know the answer to that question sir,” Johnson responded.
What a farce. What a miserable excuse for a federal government and humanity that serves in it. Double that down to the city officials of San Francisco. People get the government they deserve, and only when they experience personal loss in a horrific way, do they suddenly find religion and that wonderful “aha moment.”
We should question ourselves whether we’re surprised at the lack of reaction from this Administration given their track record of selective hearing loss, and pick and choose the crisis. For a man who made his debut on the national stage back in 2004 in the keynote address at the national Democratic convention, and talked about one America, this country is now more polarized and divided today than when he took office.
But the President will not speak out, because Ms. Steinle’s murder and how many other criminal alien situations that go unreported, do not fit the meme of his Administration’s all inclusive, open borders, amnesty for all. Innocent people die. It happens every night here in Chicago.
Black lives matter, as the President has so eloquently spoken on several occasions.
White lives matter, but the silencing is deafening from the White House and the entire Administration
So, who are the racists now, Mr. President.
