Man Who Continuously Smears Other People Wants Other People To Cool Their Rhetoric

By now, you have obviously heard of the murder of three Baton Rouge police officers, with other wounded, by Gavin Eugene Long, a Black man who had previously been a member of the Nation of Islam and has railed against “crackers”, as well as Indians and Orientals. As NBC News notes, he had a long digital footprint, and some of that was anti-white/Black supremacist. Was this a targeted attack? We don’t know yet. But, Obama wants us to calm our Blamestorming and rhetoric

(ABC News) Confronting another killing of police officers, President Barack Obama on Sunday urged Americans to tamp down inflammatory words and actions as a violent summer collides with the nation’s heated presidential campaign.

Obama said the motive behind Sunday’s killing of three officers in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, was still unknown. It was the latest in a string of deadly incidents involving law enforcement, including the police shooting of a black man in Baton Rouge and the killing of five officers in Dallas.

“We as a nation have to be loud and clear that nothing justifies attacks on law enforcement,” Obama said in remarks from the White House briefing room.

Obama said that going into the political conventions, elected officials and interest groups should focus their words and actions on uniting the country, rather than dividing it.

“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,” Obama said.

This is a man who has made a career out of using inflammatory rhetoric, always casting blame. Where was he in calling for the reduction of inflammatory rhetoric when Black Lives Matter was chanting multiple different sayings about dead cops many, many times?

The president also seemed intent on demonstrating again his support for law enforcement. Some organizations have cast doubt on that support. The National Association of Police Organizations said after the Dallas shooting that America was in the midst of a war on law enforcement officers. The group said the administration needed to show political leadership by “supporting them and giving them the resources they need to protect themselves and their communities.”

“Attacks on police are an attack on all of us and the rule of law that makes society possible,” Obama emphasized Sunday.

Where was he well over a year ago in his support for the police? Heck, during the Dallas memorial he continuously took shots at police officers while defending Black Lives Matter. Obama loves to pick sides, rather than standing for all people, including those who didn’t vote for him. As Powerline points out, Obama has spent seven years stirring up racial animosity. Calling for cooling the rhetoric now is a little late. Especially when he surely won’t cool his own.

Victor David Hansen offers three ideas for Obama

No longer invite into the White House any leaders [e.g., DeRay McKesson] whose affiliated members have marched chanting their desire to kill police officers (e.g., “What do we want? Dead cops” / “Pigs in a blanket; fry ’em like bacon”).

Do not consult with any self-appointed leader in the White House whose past has included overt and implicit calls to shoot police officers (e.g., Al Sharpton: “I believe in offing the pigs. Well, they got pigs out here. You ain’t offed one of them. What I believe in, I do. Do what you believe in. Or shut up and admit you’ve lost your courage and your guts to stand up”).

Do not invite into the White House any artists whose work has glorified the killing of officers of the criminal-justice system (e.g., Lamar Kendrick’s To Pimp a Butterfly album, one of whose songs was dubbed by Obama as his favorite of 2015), whose cover depicts a group of African-American youth celebrating with champagne and cash on the White House lawn over the corpse of a white judge with his eyes X-ed out).

He won’t. Which is probably a good reason why Cleveland Police Association head Detective Steve Loomis said that Obama has blood on his hands. I’d add that so does Hillary and a good chunk of the elected Democratic Party class.
