In a prepared response to yesterday morning’s news that 6 more police officers had been ambushed and shot, 3 killed, in Baton Rouge this time, Barack Obama still insisted on a vague and generalized scolding…
“We don’t need inflammatory rhetoric. We don’t need careless accusations thrown around to score political points or to advance an agenda. We need to temper our words and open our hearts … all of us.”
This from the emperor of heated rhetoric, such as (June 2014):
Mobster wisdom tells us never to bring a knife to a gun fight. But what does political wisdom say about bringing a gun to a knife fight?
That’s exactly what Barack Obama said he would do to counter Republican attacks “If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun,” Obama said at a Philadelphia fundraiser Friday night. “Because from what I understand folks in Philly like a good brawl. I’ve seen Eagles fans.”
And this gem (September 2008):
“If you want the next four years lookin’ like the last eight, then I’m not your candidate. But if you want real change…then I need you. I need you to go out and talk to your friends, talk to your neighbors…I want you to argue with them, get in their faces…you guys are the ones who can make the change.”
Here is a very brief history of A HISTORY OF OBAMA’S VIOLENT RHETORIC that can easily be updated with more entries since this was published, including his eulogy at a recent Dallas memorial ceremony for murdered police officers killed for their race…
Whether you are black or white or… we have all seen this bigotry in our own lives at some point… if we’re honest, perhaps we’ve heard prejudice in our own heads… we know that. And while some suffer far more under racism’s burden, some feel to a far greater extent discrimination…none of us is entirely innocent. No institution is entirely immune. And that include our police departments.
Yep, the guy sure is a primo uniter.
But now, as the families of the nation’s fallen police officers pick out caskets, flowers and a freshly starched uniform for burial, Obama has the answer to stop the killing of this nation’s police officers…
“There are legitimate issues that have been raised, and there’s data and evidence to back up the concerns that are being expressed by these protesters.
“And if police organizations and departments acknowledge that there’s a problem and there’s an issue, then that, too, is going to contribute to real solutions. And, as I said yesterday, that is what’s going to ultimately help make the job of being a cop a lot safer. It is in the interest of police officers that their communities trust them and that the kind of rancor and suspicion that exists right now is alleviated.”
Says the guy, and his administration, who has spent the last 7+ years of this nation’s life failing We The People at every turn, especially the urban neighborhoods that looked to him for leadership.
Sheriff David Clarke is done with all the liberal bullshit as two more of the nation’s police officers were ambushed and murdered.
The good Sheriff takes down CNN’s Don Lemon (must have a Facebook account to view this video) and the MSM anti-police premise and narrative while they refuse to address the real issue of the mortality rates in black neighborhoods. The Facebook link gives you the whole heated interview between Sheriff Clarke and Lemon (who was way unprepared for this). The video below is just a snippet of the CNN piece, which I am hearing CNN has since removed the video from their website and then replaced it with the usual CYA editing the media is infamous for…
Sheriff David Clarke op-ed: It’s time to stand up to Black Lives Matter
“I swear to God I love this city but I wonder if this city loves me,” Montrell Jackson wrote.
He said while in uniform he gets nasty looks and out of uniform some consider him a threat.
“I’ve experienced so much in my short life and these last 3 days have tested me to the core,” the posting read.
Here are just a few headlines proving Sheriff Clarke’s point (Drudge Report):
Any doubt this nation’s police officers are the target of a serious war against them…
