Former Assistant FBI Director Places Partial Blame For NYPD Shooting On “Race Provocateurs”
Whenever a big shooting happens, Liberals love to assign blame, typically on race or Republicans/Republican policies. Or both. Not long afterwards, we find out that the incident had nothing to do with either, and often we find that the perpetrator is actually a Leftist or the incident had nothing to do with politics. Though, of course, Liberals have already established their narrative. In this case, we know that the NYPD shooter, Ismaaiyl Brinsley, was reportedly a member of the prison gang Black Guerrilla Family, which espouses Black nationalism and Marxism, and declared open season on the NYPD following the Grand Jury decision in the Eric Garner case. This is not to blame Liberal ideology, but, certainly, Liberals have not helped the situation over the past 6 months or so, moving from a position where they were concerned about the use of military vehicles, weapons, and body armor by police to simply slamming and slurring the police, end with the shooting
(Daily Caller) Ronald T. Hosko — a former assistant director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and current president of the Law Enforcement Legal Defense Fund — issued a statement Sunday condemning the brutal murder of two New York Police Department officers and placing the blame for their deaths on “race provocateurs.”
“While the criminal who shot these officers down is ultimately responsible for their murders, a thoughtful society must examine the social circumstances that fostered such outrageous criminal conduct,” Hosko stated. “To those who have chosen to incite violence against law enforcement through the reckless vilification of police officers — shame on you.”
Hosko then went on to single out racial activists, the media and even government officials for fostering a hostile anti-police sentiment that led to the deaths of two officers Saturday.
“From race provocateurs looking for five minutes of fame, to those in the media who wantonly mischaracterized and sensationalized recent criminal cases, to the government officials who have repeatedly made statements designed to undermine legitimate law enforcement efforts across our nation – it’s time to reexamine your own words and actions and take your share of responsibility,” the statement continued.
He refused to name names, but, they know who they are. Of course, being Leftists, they’ve probably convinced themselves that they are In The Right, and Not To Blame. Nor that the protesters are to blame. Rudy Giuliani names names
(Politico) Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani is condemning President Barack Obama for anti-police “propaganda” in the wake of the murders of two New York City police officers in Brooklyn.
When asked on “Fox News Sunday” if he had ever seen the city he once governed so divided, Giuliani shook his head and said, “I don’t think so.”
Giuliani said blame rests on “four months of propaganda,” which he said started with Obama, “that everybody should hate the police.” He said the nationwide protests against several recent police-involved deaths lead to one conclusion: “The police are bad. The police are racist. They’re wrong.”
You can add bad actors like Attorney General Eric Holder, race hustler Al Sharpton, NY Mayor Bill De Blasio (when you’ve lost Mike Lupica…), Democrat members of Congress, and so many more who, instead of being thoughtful and rational and calm, have fomented division and hatred, creating an atmosphere that was ripe for the execution style killings of the two NYPD officers.
