Playing on the publics intelligence

Worley, Willie, Jr. (Intelligence Journalist)



Playing on the Publics Intelligence Willie Worley Jr., North Carolina The public emotions to some politicians are like their personal play toy. They wait to inject anti African-Caucasian American rhetoric into crisis that causes the public emotional pain. The public are victims of politicians charisma. Here is a perfect example. On Monday December 22, 2014 an article was printed in the Charlotte Observer by Rik Stevens and Verna Dobnik. It's title was "Killings of 2 New York Officers Triggered Backlash". Subtitle "Union Officials, Others Accused Protestors Of Fanning Anti-Police Fervor". In this article Ex-New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani lashed out at New York Mayor Bill de Blasio, President Barack Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder on Fox News. He reportedly stated that we have had four months of propaganda starting with the president, that everybody should hate police. First off, let me be the first to say as a social justice, civil rights activist, journalist and political cartoonist, we should not hate law-enforcement agents or agencies. I will say this, we should be troubled by the criminals that clandestinely work in our law-enforcement agencies, corrupting and tainting our departments across the nation. No police upholding what is right should be gunned down like the ones were in New York. Nor should our African American youth be gunned down by police officers. Our police forces are not broken, our government is not broken, our judgement is just not accurate. We allow our emotional pain to be our guide in electing our public officials. In judging criminals actions that hide in our law-enforcement agencies. It's all about accountability. Police officers should be held accountable for their criminal behavior. We have to stop making excuses for the lives police are taking and lies the are telling to cover up their assassinations of African American youth Alot of individuals are using these irrational moments as a political platform, to lash out at their opponent. We as citizens and private citizen must not be persuaded by these tactics
