The Outrage Over Oakland Cop Killer In Larger Context

One video is worth a thousand words:

I mean, if you’re not going to celebrate a man who murdered four police officers after hauling a 12 year old girl off the street at gunpoint and raping her (reportedly along with several other girls according to law enforcement), who are you going to celebrate?

The San Francisco Chronicle had part of the story:

Dozens march for Mixon, against police
Charles Burress, Chronicle Staff Writer

“OPD you can’t hide – we charge you with genocide,” chanted the demonstrators as they marched along MacArthur Boulevard, near the intersection with 74th Avenue where Mixon, 26, a fugitive parolee, gunned down two motorcycle officers who had pulled him over in a traffic stop. He killed two more officers who tried to capture him where he was hiding in his sister’s apartment nearby.

The protest was organized by the Oakland branch of the Uhuru Movement, whose flyers for the march declared, “Stop Police Terror.” Many marchers wore T-shirts featuring Mixon’s photo, including a woman identified by march organizers as Mixon’s mother. The woman declined to comment and gave her name only as Athena.

Lolo Darnell, one of Mixon’s cousins at the demonstration, said, “He needs sympathy too. If he’s a criminal, everybody’s a criminal.”

Asked about police allegations that Mixon was suspected in several rapes, including that of a 12-year-old girl, marcher Mandingo Hayes said, “He wasn’t a rapist. I don’t believe that.”

Bystanders had mixed reactions. Nicole Brown said that she can’t condone murder but that police don’t respect residents of the area. Daria Belt said she had no sympathy for the protesters but sympathized for Mixon’s family.

Of course, the Chronicle and most of the rest of the media most definitely don’t want to tell you the full story: for example, it’s NOT the “Uhuru Movement” who marched in the street praising a cop murdering rapist career dirtbag; it’s the International People’s Democratic Uhuru Movement. Wouldn’t want anyone to in any way be able to connect this “movement” (as in ‘bowel movement’) to Democrats, would we?

We also learn that Mixon’s cousin, Dolores Darnell, 26, called Mixon “a true hero, a soldier.” And DEMOCRATIC Uhuru Movement member Kihad Deen argued, “I don’t condone what he did, but it’s bringing to light the frustrations between the community and the police. This gives people a chance to speak their minds.”

If one person – just one – in that march voted for or in any way supported John McCain, I will eat my underwear. This is a hard-core liberal movement supporting hard-core leftist causes – and the left deserves full “credit” for the DEMOCRATIC Uhuru Movement’s “contributions.”

The Associated Press ran a story that had the following to say:

OAKLAND, Calif.—Relatives of the man suspected of fatally shooting three Oakland police officers said Sunday the 26-year-old parolee was frustrated about not finding work and feared returning to jail…

Mixon’s uncle, 38-year-old Curtis Mixon of Fremont, said his nephew had become depressed because he could not find work as a convicted felon. His nephew expected authorities to issue an arrest warrant for missing parole meetings, even though the he felt he was not to blame, he said.

“I think his frustration was building up, but he was trying to better himself,” Curtis Mixon said.

Mixon was a hero of the common man, a regular Willy Loman character come to life from the pages of Death of a Salesman. Of that story we read:

It is said that [Arthur] Miller is criticizing America and capitalism as a promoter of socialism. It is demonstrated through Willy, the protagonist during the story, who struggles to support his family and even himself. It is the story of a man at the end of his life, who realizes he has wasted his years in pursuit of a goal that is not only unattainable, but was never real to begin with.

And of course, to top Willy Loman, Mixon never had a chance – claim liberals – because he was black.

The fact that he was a 26-year old career criminal who spent six years in prison for armed robbery before spending another 9 months for parole violations before being a serial rapist and then four-time cop killer amount to insignificant details – and I of course must be a hardened racist for even bringing them up to begin with.

We find the classic liberal story line: Lovelle Mixon as victim of racist white societal oppression, finally lashing out as a hero and dying in a blaze of glory in a statement against that oppression.

This is nothing new – which is why I tie this right to the Obama camp which buys this brand of bullshit hook, line, and sinker.

Here’s another murderous rat bastard openly cherished by the left – and specifically by Obama supporters:

Che Guevera was a hard-core communist murderer of anyone with whom he disagreed – which is apparently all one needs to be iconicized as a hero by the political left these days.

Why would anyone NOT want as President of the United States of America a candidate whose campaign offices honor a man who said:

“The U.S. is the great enemy of mankind!” raved Ernesto “Che” Guevara in 1961. “Against those hyenas there is no option but extermination. We will bring the war to the imperialist enemies’ very home, to his places of work and recreation. The imperialist enemy must feel like a hunted animal wherever he moves. Thus we’ll destroy him! We must keep our hatred against them (the U.S.) alive and fan it to paroxysms!”

Why not eulogize with a flag the man who wrote to his father:

I’d like to confess, papa, at that moment I discovered that I really like killing.

Why not celebrate the leftist ideologue who proclaimed:

“The solutions to the world’s problems lie behind the Iron Curtain,” stressed Ernesto “Che” Guevara who often signed his correspondence with the moniker “Stalin II.” “If the nuclear missiles had remained we would have fired them against the heart of the U.S. including New York City,” he boasted. “The victory of socialism is well worth millions of atomic victims.”

Why honor Guevara? Because of course “the victory of socialism” IS well worth millions of victims – atomic or otherwise – to the left. Always has been. And it most certainly still is today, even as it is imposed upon America with a swiftness that even the most ardent critics of Obama are finding stunning.

If a John McCain office had been discovered to have a Yugoslavian flag emblazoned with the image of Slobodan Milošević, I have a feeling the media would have interpreted the implications of such a thing far differently than the nonchalant “ho-hum” response accorded to Obama. And of course the same “ho-hum” response was accorded to him as radical after radical was discovered in his intimate circle of support.

The honoring of figures like Lovelle Mixon by the Democratic Uhuru Movement is part of a time-honored tradition of the American left. Many of the same liberal politicians and bureaucrats in office today once publicly celebrated Che Guevara, the Black Panthers, and/or other violent leftist extremist people and groups in their own “day.” By way of contrast let me assure you; Timothy McVeigh isn’t getting a lot of play in Republican circles. The right doesn’t play this incredibly ugly game; the left does.

We don’t do this crap.  Nor do we provide “useful idiot”  support for movements such as communism which is responsible for more than 100 million murders in the 20th century.  Instead, the very people who supported murderous people and movements decry George Bush as a war criminal for taking out an Iraqi tyrant who was responsible for more than one million lives in war, and who filled mass graves with the bodies of more than 400,000 of his own people.

The American people have never faced up to the idols of the left or the implications of what it means when people with such idols assume power.

    Message to Certain Blacks in Oakland: I’m Tired of Your Lame Excuses

    By Robert Oliver

    Yes, that’s right. You love your blackness more than you love common sense, sometimes even more than your own people. Must I sue for divorce from the Black community on the grounds of mental cruelty?

    I’m black. I grew up in Chicago, the most segregated city in the North. I’m from “da hood” too. There was a time I experienced racism every day for 4 years there. So I know what racism is about.

    But yet, you scream, yell and protest because of a CRIMINAL who murdered four cops. They did not shoot him first. He shot them first. Is that an act of Black bravery, qualifying for the El Hajj Malik Shabazz (Malcolm X) Peace Prize? Is a hero now? (Remember Malcolm had to protect his family, not from white folks, not from cops, but from his own people who eventually killed him.)

    You all claim you are like Palestinians in Gaza, in an “occupied territory” as if you are shut in a “prison” with nowhere to go. You are the occupiers. Who took you from Africa and put you in Oakland? Who is keeping you in slavery there? If you don’t like the “oppression,” you should do what you can to leave if you were serious. You are in a prison with unlocked jail cells. You are free to go anywhere, even to Africa, the Motherland, if you wanted to. I don’t hear about oppression in San Francisco. I don’t even hear about oppression in Los Angeles. Even blacks in Chicago don’t scream about oppression as you are doing as bad as things are there.

    The whole world watches, and I’m tired of your lame excuses.

    Your guy Mixon shot the cops, not even in self-defense. He pulled the trigger first, killing those four cops doing their jobs, and that makes him a Black hero, right? They did not shoot him until he had to be killed because he was killing others. This is what the Los Angeles Times says:

    “In October 2007, Lovelle Mixon was released on parole after serving five years of a six-year sentence for assault with a firearm. Within months the 26-year-old Oakland resident was in trouble again, authorities said.

    “In February, Mixon was placed on a parole hold as a possible suspect in a homicide in Alameda County, according to Scott Kernan, undersecretary of operations for the state Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation. Prosecutors declined to file charges in that case, saying there was not sufficient evidence, but Mixon was detained on various parole violations and sent back to prison for nine months, Kernan said.
    “Here is a look at Mixon’s interactions with the parole department since his Nov. 1 release from the California Correctional Center in Susanville, as reported by the department :

    “Nov. 3: Mixon reports to his parole agent for an initial interview and undergoes his first mandatory drug test.

    “Nov. 5: Mixon reports to Parole and Community Team, a state program that offers a broad range of services to parolees. The agency provides job placement, drug treatment and other services. During the visit, he met with his parole agent and again was tested for drugs.
    “Nov. 7: Mixon’s parole agent makes an initial residential visit, meeting with Mixon at his mother’s home in Oakland. The agent also met with relatives of Mixon to evaluate his living conditions and who he was interacting with while on parole. During the visit, Mixon is referred by the agent to America Work, an employment service.

    “Dec. 17: Mixon’s parole agent makes a residential visit, also meeting with one of Mixon’s cousins as part of their continuing effort to assess his family situation.

    “Dec. 19: Mixon reports to the parole office and takes a drug test.

    “Jan. 6: Mixon reports to the parole office and takes a drug test.

    “Jan. 23: Mixon’s parole agent makes a residential visit and refers Mixon to another employment service, Project Choice Employment.

    “Feb. 6: Mixon reports to the parole office and takes a drug test.

    “Feb. 18: Mixon’s parole agent makes a residential visit but cannot locate him.

    “Feb. 24: Mixon’s parole agent makes another residential visit but Mixon cannot be located. The agent talks with his mother.

    “Feb. 26: After another residential visit, the agent still cannot locate Mixon.

    “Feb. 27: The parole agent prepares a parolee-at-large report and a warrant is issued for Mixon’s arrest. The state Board of Parole Hearings suspends Mixon’s parole effective Feb. 19, the day after his parole officer first failed to find him. The case is referred to the corrections department’s Fugitive Apprehension Team.

    “March 6: The Fugitive Apprehension Team and members of the Oakland Police Department visit three Oakland addresses, including Mixon’s mother’s home, his address of record. The following week, they distribute a bulletin to the Oakland Police Department. The case is also referred to the U.S. Marshals Service to check on reports that Mixon might have been in the Auburn, Wash., area. They are unable to locate him.

    “March 21: Mixon is pulled over by Oakland motorcycle officers for a traffic violation shortly after 1 p.m. Authorities said he began shooting at the officers, killing Sgt. Mark Dunakin, 40, and fatally wounding Officer John Hege, 41. After trying to hide in a nearby apartment building where his sister lives, Mixon kills Oakland SWAT sergeants Ervin Romans, 43, and Daniel Sakai, 35, before he is shot and killed by police.”

    I’m really disgusted at your lame excuses. I’m tired of your “wolf cookies.”

    I could understand anger if he was shot by a cop for no reason. I could understand if he was not threatening anyone. But this man was a convicted felon on parole (assault with a handgun). He shot the cops first. Get a clue, please. Why do you all want to celebrate a criminal? I remember the good old days when we would celebrate people like Booker T. Washington, Frederick Douglass, Adam Clayton Powell and Martin Luther King, Jr. But we black people have evolved. We are more enlightened now. We have to celebrate our criminal element too, especially our cop-killas. Al Sharpton and the NAACP did that last year for black thugs who tortured, sexually assaulted, and robbed a BLACK woman in Florida. They had no pity for the victim, just for the thugs who tortured her. Are you giving the whole world the impression that blacks seem to care more about criminals than law-abiding people. This is my “I’m-embarrassed-to-be-Black” moment. I understand there a “Stop Snitching” campaign in Oakland? Why? Is it a black thing and I don’t understand? When blacks do crap to other blacks, don’t tell the police, right? We have to protect our beloved criminals, right. It is the law-abiding black citizens, especially senior citizens, who live in terror of the black criminals who should go to hell right? It is your own black neighbors who live in oppression because of black thugs, not because of cops.

    Why is it we do in each other in when we celebrate our own criminals?

    This is what a friend wrote:

    “Hi, Robert. This makes me sick to my stomach. I seriously need to plan to move from these United States of America. Some blacks are idiots, and they make me ashamed of my race with this madness. I feel for all the families involved. But he shot the cops first so they were just protecting themselves from this dangerous criminal. What is wrong with black people? He was a criminal not an advocate of any community. Black people wake up please before it’s too late.”

    The black editor of the Oakland Tribune Chauncey Bailey was shot dead by a Black Muslim in 2007 in broad daylight. How many of these blacks of you marched and protested that? Were you all demanding justice? Were you all outraged when one of your own gunned down one of your own? Those who knew Bailey were outraged. I did not see outrage from you. I understand “Stop Snitching” was going on there in Oakland about that murder. Again, it is your own black neighbors who live in oppression because of black thugs, not because of cops. Or did you decide it was not really a tragedy since a white man or a cop did not shoot Bailey?

    He was down for your community. Were you down for him? Bailey was a strong advocate for the black community, even for those same people who are celebrating Mixon. Yet the outrage in the black community in Oakland was very little. Mixon was not an advocate for the black community at all, a convicted criminal and murderer, and people march and protest and this criminal gets celebrated. He is a role model for all young Black children in Oakland right?

    Rev. Walter Hoye, a black minister in Oakland went to jail because he was telling women, including black women, that there was an alternative to abortion. Were any of you outraged over the brother being a “victim” of the white racist justice system? How many of you were protesting with signs ‘FREE REV. HOYE!”?

    Is not something wrong with that picture? Keep your lame excuses because they won’t fly, even out of Oakland International Airport.

    I would say this to Robert: glad you’re around.

    I’m a white guy. I barely understand racism from an existential perspective (I am a white man, but with olive skin; a few times I have been mistaken as Hispanic – and a couple of those times it was in a racist manner). But obviously, I don’t experience the effects of racism on any regular basis, and I have never had a sense of systematic “otherness” that I perceived as negative.

    I think you and I have this in common, Robert: we are willing to befriend anyone of any color if we share common values and are both headed in the same direction. In a way, I’m incredibly lucky: I’ve had BEST FRIENDS of every major racial group on the planet. I’ve had a couple of Asian best friends; I’ve had a couple of black best friends (and one was actually from Africa); I’ve had a Persian best friend; I’ve had a Hispanic best friend. I’ve had an Indian (from India) best friend. In every case, it wasn’t BECAUSE of race OR in spite of race; we were just two guys who encountered one another and had that spark of friendship that grew and developed.

    Some black people think that whites are inherently prejudiced. I can’t claim that I have absolutely no instinct that makes me look at a person of one race differently from another; but I can claim that I am willing to give anyone a chance. And I can claim that matters of skin color are not nearly as important to me as matters of character.

    But the black people that Robert is angry at DON’T have character; they have become bad people, they believe lies, and they think only in negative and RACIST thoughts.

    When someone from a particular group of people does wrong, it is first up to the fellow members of his or her group to point it out and deal with that person. As a Christian, if someone who claims to be a Christian does or says something wrong, it is my responsibility – FAR more than some Muslim or some Hindu – to deal with him. And the same thing goes to people of different races. Thus, in the past, whites failed by not standing up against racists and slave owners and Ku Klux Klansmen. And in the same way, blacks are failing today by not dealing with the continual racism and “race card dealing” of their fellow blacks.

    Robert is different. He stands up for what is right, and takes responsibility for his own group. He’s the kind of fellow that I would bond with as friend.

    The worst thing is that blacks – by failing in the ways that Robert has described so well – have hurt themselves far more than they have hurt anyone else. A community in crisis has perpetuated and magnified their own crisis and their own dysfunction. And only people like Robert – by standing in the gap – can turn this terrible tide.

  4. Robert Says:

    Thanks, Michael.

    Another thing about that Uhuru group. They want $1,000,000 per black person for reparations, and they don’t think much of Barack Obama, believe it or not. And I have to agree with their reason. Obama does not think much of black people. Evidence? Look at all his cabinet appointments, including the do-overs. Not one of the Congressional Black Caucus was considered. And last year his campaign did not want to buy any advertising in black newsapapers. They thought that they would advertise Obama for free.

    So the Uhuru people and I have that in common. Obama does not believe in paying out reparations too. I have that in common with him.

    For another take on reparations, see what Los Angeles Homeless Activist Ted Hayes has to say about it. He also does NOT believe in shaking down the government and paying out money to people (which will be spent in a matter of months anyway:

  5. Michael Eden Says:

    Hi again, Robert.

    The Uhuru people don’t like Obama the way Cindy Sheehan doesn’t like Nancy Pelosi. It’s not that both (groups in the case of Uhuru) are not on virtually the same page on one liberal issue after another. But because the former are far more radical than even the most radical of prominent elected officials.

    I think blacks are going to have to get in line behind American Indians for their “reparations.” I WOULD be willing to give every black who asks a one-way airline ticket to Africa, provided they forfeit the right to come back, if they want THAT reparation – and I would insist it be a first class ticket at that.

    The United States government most certainly DID owe reparations – to every human being who had been compelled under the force of US law to be a slave. And we should have paid them. But to their ancestors? Sorry. The only people who deserve “reparations” for slavery are the people who were actually slaves.

    It’s funny about Obama: 99.99% of the time, we were told he was “black.” But very little mention was made of the fact that he was every bit as “white” as he is “black.” And that – in terms of his upbringing (raised by his white mother and white grandparents, while his black father completely abandoned him) – he was almost entirely “white.”

    Obama cynically used his “blackness” as a political weapon to both insulate himself from attacks from his opposition (because ANYTHING negative about Obama was reduced to racism) and as a political wedge to “guilt trip” whites into voting for the first black president.

    In fact I would argue that this was the most cynical campaign from the most cynical politician in American history.

    There are so many great black men and women in America; too damn bad that such a loser whose sole talent was cynical exploitation was the one who became president.
