(National Sentinel) Police Reality: To hear members of Black Lives Matter, Antifa and other far-Left, violent extremist organizations tell it, damn near every cop in and out of uniform is an overt racist bigot just waiting to night stick poor colored folk into oblivion.
The facts are much different, however, and an organization representing New York Police officers is speaking up about what it calls “blue racism” at a time when cops are increasing being targeted and killed.
As Fox News reports:
Angry at what they say is widespread discrimination leveled against their ranks, a group of police officers in New York City coined the term “Blue Racism” as a way to draw attention to the mistreatment they say they face at the hands of the public.
While a string of police-related killings over the last few years and the rise to prominence of groups like Black Lives Matter have shed light on the abuse some minorities face at the hands of law enforcement, the New York Police Department’s Sergeants Benevolent Association says they too have become victims.
“Cops are being shot at and killed just because they are cops,” Ed Mullins, the SBA president and a 36-year NYPD veteran, told Fox News. “Police are being made to be the bad guys and I’m not saying that there aren’t a few bad apples, but the majority of us are trying to help people and do our jobs.”
The SBA on Sunday released a video on “Blue Racism” in which the group describes how police officers have been systematically targeted for discrimination and how many people can’t look past the color of their uniform.
The roughly four-minute long video intersperses shots of law enforcement officers getting ready for patrol and helping elderly citizens with scenes from recent – and often times violent – demonstrations in response to police related-shootings.
“The average person doesn’t see those things that make me human,” the video’s narrator says. “They don’t even label as being African-American, Latino, Asian, Caucasian and so on. They tend to see an even broader stereotype, through an even more racist lens.”
“When they look at me, they see blue,” the narrator adds.
The video notes that the nation’s 700,000-plus officers have become a minority from this “strange form of racism” that continues to spread across the country.
Meanwhile, has-been NFL quarterbacks get Smithsonian attention and assholes like this thug-wannabe in Boston (below) “protesting” a free speech event over the weekend get to continue living in a country where they can do that shit to a cop and live to tell about it:
If you’re as angry and fed up as most Americans are with the treatment our police officers have been getting from insane Democrats and far-Left anarchist pricks who like to think they’re some reincarnation of Che Guevara, do what you can to show your support for cops in your neck of the woods and across the country: Be law-abiding, respectful, and appreciative — and just maybe, once in a while, buy an officer a cup of coffee or something.
We need them to be out on our streets keeping the criminal element and the wannabe revolutionaries at bay, because God forbid the day should come when they refuse, en mass, to go to work.
