(National Sentinel) Divisive: Throughout the Obama presidency, the 44th president used race to continually bash America’s police, asserting at every opportunity that the men and women who form the thin blue line between order and chaos are bigots who leap at every opportunity to imperil or harm people of color.
This reverse bigotry began very early on in President Obama’s first term; just months in, he blamed a white Cambridge, Mass., police officer for arresting his friend, Harvard Prof. Henry Louis Gates, who is black, without first knowing all the facts.
CNN, always reliably in Obama’s corner, reported:
President Obama said that police in Cambridge, Massachusetts, “acted stupidly” in arresting a prominent black Harvard professor last week after a confrontation at the man’s home.
“I don’t know, not having been there and not seeing all the facts, what role race played,” Obama said Wednesday night while taking questions after a White House news conference.
“But I think it’s fair to say, No. 1, any of us would be pretty angry; No. 2, that the Cambridge police acted stupidly in arresting somebody when there was already proof that they were in their own home; and, No. 3 … that there’s a long history in this country of African-Americans and Latinos being stopped by law enforcement disproportionately,” he continued.
That set the tone for the rest of his presidency, no matter how untrue and inflammatory that claim was. And by the time Obama left, Antifa, Black Lives Matter, and other radical Marxist-Left organizations were regularly railing against or targeting police officers.
Dallas police officers saluting the coffin of a fellow officer killed in the line of duty by sniper and former U.S. Army soldier Micah Johnson, a black activist who murdered four other officers and wounded seven others in January 2017. Two civilians were also wounded.
And all with the Democratic Party’s blessing.
Now, suddenly, the Left is all up in arms over President Donald J. Trump’s very legitimate criticisms of some members of the Justice Department and FBI who, under Obama, illicitly spied on his presidential campaign.
In fact, some of the same lunatics who no doubt praised King Obama when he chastised police and instructed his DoJ to essentially federalize as many local police departments as possible, are suddenly the FBI’s biggest defenders.
As reported by The Daily Caller:
MSNBC guest and Sirius XM radio host Mark Thompson said on Monday that he believes criticizing the FBI and law enforcement is a “high crime and misdemeanor.”
During a back-and-forth regarding the recently-released Republican-authored “FISA Memo” and the response to the memo on far-Left MSNBC, Thompson claimed he had “never seen anything” like criticisms of the FBI and law enforcement, in general, being tossed about by Republicans.
“And the other thing, just to draw together, this whole thing with the NRA,” the host said. “The NRA and Trump are attacking local law enforcement. The White House is attacking the FBI. We’ve never seen anything like this from Republicans.”
This idiot went on to claim that any criticisms of police and the FBI maybe, sorta, could be considered “seditious” even.
“And as I’ve said on your show before, to me that’s seditious, which in and of itself is a high crime and misdemeanor,” Thompson claimed, adding: “If I were [special counsel Robert] Mueller, I would go and pick him up today.”
Oh, sure. Idiot seems to have conveniently forgotten the Democrats’ roasting of FBI Director James Comey when he was being blamed for Hillary Clinton’s election loss.
First of all, there is nothing “seditious” for criticizing FBI agents and Justice Department supervisors who knowingly misrepresented a fake political document in order to get a warrant so they could spy on Trump’s campaign. If Mueller ought to be indicting anyone, it should be the government officials involved in that.
Secondly, Trump and Republicans are absolutely within their bounds to criticize law enforcement officers — armed law enforcement officers — who failed to intervene in a school when children were inside being murdered.
For Pete’s sake, if they’re not able to do that, then what in blazes are they doing being police officers?
And of course, let’s not forget how these same people cheered Obama when he was trashing local police as bigots and racists.
There is a threat to American democracy and freedom, ladies and gentlemen, but it ain’t coming from Republicans.
It’s coming from Democrats and their disgusting lapdogs in the Left-wing political commentariat.
