Obama, just today, July 17, 2016, stated that “nothing justifies violence against law enforcement”, referring to the police killings we’ve seen this weekend in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. But our dear president has forgotten his former position on a lesser matter regarding the police in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and other police matters as well, when he stated that the police responded “stupidly” to an event before he even knew what had happened.
Our president now also has taken the new attitude that “we need to temper our words and open our hearts”, and “we need to avoid divisive rhetoric” following the tragic events in Baton Rouge this weekend. It appears our president suddenly realizes that his former racist, anti-police statements were not only listened to by the rabble that would kill police officers, but these thugs have taken his former excessive words as encouragement to move forward with their shooting and killing, knowing that Obama would once again not blame them, but would divert attention to the guns used in the murders as being at fault. At least Obama, with his new-found soothing words, has finally dropped the idiotic anti-gun and anti-police rhetoric that has always been his fallback position, and is now taking the position of the great unifier and healer, following the destructive words he’s spoken in the past. Why has it taken our punk president so long to begin absorbing his on-the-job training and finally, although probably temporarily, begun blaming the killers and not their guns?
Obama, while disrupting peoples’ lives as a community organizer, could make grand denunciations of the police that he was aggravating and protesting against in Chicago and his words would be heard by few people, understood by fewer, and taken seriously by nearly no one. But as president his words of criticism for the police have caused an enormous divide in America, which has resulted in an open hunting season on police officers, based on Obama’s own words, and it’s all on him.
Barack Obama had such a blessed opportunity to unify the nation and bury racial animosity when a majority of Americans, black and white alike, elected him president. And now, nearly eight years later, he’s blown the chance to heal, based solely on his intention to “fundamentally transform America” and has caused more racial divisiveness and violence than we’ve ever seen before. This division and hate, I fear, is what modern-day liberals/progressives/Democrats do, and I know it’s a practice that Hillary will continue and expand upon if she’s elected president.
