VIDEO: Giuliani Calls Obama Out on Cop Ambush: Propaganda Pushed People to Hate the Police
The country is outraged following the assassinations of two NYPD officers, especially once they found out that the murderer wrote that he was doing so in revenge for the deaths of Michael Brown and Eric Garner. Former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani rightly called out current mayor Bill DeBlasio and President Barack Obama for enflaming racial tensions and fostering an anti-cop culture in the country today.
Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani is a hero in New York City. Whether Republican or Democrat, many respect the man who has always seemed to genuinely care about his city and it’s not surprising that media outlets looked to him for a comment in the aftermath of the assassination of two New York City police officers.
“It goes too far to blame the mayor for the murder, or to ask for the mayor’s resignation,” Giuliani said on Fox & Friends Weekend.
Still, Giuliani qualified,
“But I don’t think it goes too far to say the mayor did not properly police the protests. He allowed the protesters to take over the streets. He allowed them to hurt police officers, to commit crimes, and he didn’t arrest them. And when you do that, similar to what happened in Crown Heights, you create a great riot. He should have known better. For that he has to take accountability.”
Giuliani also criticized President Obama for his racially-charged rhetoric:
“We’ve had four months of propaganda starting with the president that everybody should hate the police,” Giuliani said. “The protests are being embraced, the protests are being encouraged. The protests, even the ones that don’t lead to violence, a lot of them lead to violence, all lead to a conclusion. The police are bad, the police are racist. That is completely wrong.”
Giuliani noted that people like Obama and Al Sharpton “have created an atmosphere of severe, strong, anti-police hatred in certain communities.”
It doesn’t seem like they’ll be able to get rid of the blood on their hands, too — NYPD cops already turned their backs on DeBlasio after the shootings, and the outcry against him, Obama, Sharpton, and the like has been loud and unceasing. While they didn’t pull the trigger, they absolutely did encourage the violent anti-cop rhetoric, and for that, they are at least partially guilty.
