The August riots in Milwaukee were another unfortunate example of leftists and their media allies actually creating violence. Here was a situation where a black suspect with previous weapons violations was actually armed and dangerous, would not disarm after repeated warnings, and was shot by a black police officer. But no matter: the narrative was set a long time ago, facts are troublesome at best, and there’s never a bad time for outright thuggery.
Many poor blacks have been conditioned by President Obama’s shameless propaganda into believing ‘whitey’ is out to get them. And the message of the Left to blacks has been: it’s okay to smash or burn things and hurt people, even if those people haven’t actually done something wrong. Because the problem is in The System.
This is a creed of pure revolution, of the kind of lawlessness that can never lead to justice for all but only indiscriminate bloodletting.
Sheriff Clarke: Obama Started ‘War on Police’
by Kyle Becker [IJR] * 31 August, 2015
Sheriff David Clarke is not one to mince words, and now he’s blaming a lack of presidential leadership for creating an atmosphere where protesters can openly call for the murder of police officers without comment from the White House.
On Judge Jeanine Pirro’s show on Fox News, the sheriff directly charged the president for an “open season” on police officers. Clarke’s comments follow upon the “execution-style” murder of Deputy Dan Goforth at a Chevron gas station in Texas.
Sheriff Clarke made it clear he was “too pissed off” to sugarcoat what he thought of the situation, saying he was not going to “be diplomatic about what’s going on” and he’s “not going to stick his head in the sand about it.”
Clarke charged the White House for creating an environment for over-the-top rhetoric and violence against police officers:
“I said last December that war had been declared against the American police officer, led by some high-profile people. One of them coming out of the White House, another one coming out of the U.S. Department of Justice. And it’s open season right now, no doubt about it.”
Later in the interview, the sheriff pointed his finger at the president himself:
Clark commented after a question on the lack of leadership facing the issue of attacks on police:
“That’s why I said the President of the United States started this ‘war on police.'”
Others have raised questions about the president seizing on opportunities to politicize acts of violence against black Americans, while remaining silent on high-profile cases when police officers or non-minority individuals are murdered.
The shooting at WDBJ in Roanoke, Virginia by a disgruntled former employee that had made accusations of racial discrimination against his colleagues has led to widespread national discussion of whether or not the murderer Vester Flanagan (also known on-air as Bryce Williams) should be charged with a hate crime.
“You want a race war? … BRING IT THEN YOU WHITE…(deleted)!!!” Flanagan wrote in response to the Charleston shooting carried out by white supremacist Dylann Roof, as was reported by ABC News.
Roof was investigated at a federal level for “hate crime” charges in the racially motivated shooting, yet any such case against Flanagan has gone unpursued.
