Today a third cop was shot to death in Florida.
Yesterday another cop was shot in St. Louis.
These deaths are blood on the hands of Barack Obama, Eric Holder, Al Sharpton and Bill DeBlasio who have been stoking the fires of police hate continuously.
Eric Holder claimed that all cops are racist via “unconscious bias”:
In the past five years, Holder has more than doubled the number of police department probes compared with the previous five years, opening more than 20 investigations and pressuring 15 consent orders to stop “biased policing” and other alleged violations.
What’s striking about these federally mandated orders is the lack of evidence investigators found to show cops stopped and arrested black people simply because of bias. They assumed, but couldn’t prove, they targeted blacks due to an automatic and unfair association between them and crime and not because they actually committed crimes.
New York Mayor Bill De Blasio accused the cops of “centuries of racism.” He claimed that his son was at risk from racist cops. De Blasio’s wife said she’s warned her son to be careful around racist cops.
Barack Obama broadly brands cops as racist:
Obama outlined his new focus on racist cops Nov. 25.
“In many communities of color [people] have a sense that our laws are not always being enforced uniformly or fairly,” Obama told supporters in Chicago.
“That may not be true everywhere, and it’s certainly not true for the vast majority of law enforcement officials, but that’s an impression that folks have and it’s not just made up,” said the nation’s chief law enforcement official.
Obama also remarked that a racial quota system should be established for police forces.
Neither the Garner nor the Brown death was racially motivated but Barack Obama is not one to let a serious crisis go to waste.
It used to be folks would say, well, maybe blacks are exaggerating, maybe some of these situations aren’t what they describe. But we’ve now seen on television for everybody to see — gives us an opportunity, I think, to finally have the kind of conversation that’s been a long time coming.
But some of these situations aren’t what folks describe. The earliest eyewitness accounts of what went down in Ferguson on Aug. 9 — that Michael Brown raised his hands in submission and that officer Darren Wilson shot him in cold blood — were disproved by the forensic evidence. Similarly Obama’s claim about what “we’ve now seen on television,” presumably referring to the botched Eric Garner arrest, seems to suggest this is an open-and-shut case of police brutalizing a victim purely on racial grounds. In fact, no such assumption can be made based on the video. Obama as an attorney should be aware of this.
Portnoy has it exactly right. Barack Obama is using the police as his whipping boy and racism as the whip to further a canard. It is tragic that while there are no doubt instances of police racism these aren’t them and Obama is making things much worse than they ought to be. Obama and the rest of these race hustlers have deflected the issue from the real problems- not the least of which is personal responsibility- and doing what liberals do so well- blame someone else.
Al Sharpton is a cancer on society. Death and ruin follow him like a shadow. In 2012 I asked
“Who dies next because of Al Sharpton?” Now we know. Barack Obama tapping him as his ‘go to guy” on race proves that Obama wants the issue instead of the truth. He wants anger instead of calm. The community agitator in Obama thrives on hate and division. The country gets to see what Obama meant by “the kind of conversation that’s been a long time coming.”
It’s a war on cops over non-racial events. The death toll is three.
So far. Congratulations, liberals. This is really going to help race relations.
And Eric Garner did not die from a chokehold.
