Remember when a whole lot of white people voted for Obama, because he was going to finally heal all the nation’s racial discord? ::snort:: HEALING racial discord is the opposite of what the Democrats are all about.
On August 28, 2015, the Democratic National Committee passed a resolution endorsing the “Black Lives Matter” movement. The DNC has not chosen to endorse “Blue Lives Matter.”
Obama has definitely been on board with the “Black Lives Matter” move to demonize cops while pandering to violent blacks, from his “The police acted stupidly” remark in 2009, to “If I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon” in 2012, to his decisions to send White House delegations to the funerals of Michael Brown (2014) and Freddie Gray (2015).
Obama did not send White House representatives to the funerals of Nicholas Oresko, Lech Kaczynski, or James Foley. Oh, you don’t know who those people are? Hmm … I bet you know who Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown, and Freddie Gray are, though, don’t you.
So far this year, 23 police officers have been killed by gunfire and three of these were specifically targeted because they were officers. In 2014, nine officers were ambushed and killed. Chuck Canterbury, national president of the Fraternal Order of Police, said, “In the last few years, ambush attacks aimed to kill or injure law enforcement officers have risen dramatically.”
Hmmm … lemme think how much the top Democrat’s “I love thugs” message is behind those statistics. ::coughcough::
Below is the account of the latest fatal “BlackLivesMatter” shooting from the court record:
Police first received a call at 8:20 p.m. Friday. When authorities arrived at the gas station in the Houston suburb of Cypress, they found Deputy Darren Goforth, a 10-year-veteran of the force, face-down. He was already dead, [Anderson] said.
Surveillance video from the gas station shows that Goforth, 47, had just come out of a convenience store after he had pumped gas and that Miles got out of his red truck, she said. “He runs up behind Deputy Goforth and puts the gun to the back of his head and shoots.
Deputy Goforth hits the ground and then he continues to unload his gun, shooting repeatedly into the back of Deputy Goforth,” Anderson said. Goforth was shot 15 times and a witness saw the shooting, Anderson said. She added that the shell casings match the .40-caliber Smith and Wesson handgun found at Miles’ home.
Harris County Sheriff Ron Hickman said Saturday that the attack was “clearly unprovoked,” and there is no evidence that Goforth knew Miles. “Our assumption is that he (Goforth) was a target because he wore a uniform,” the sheriff said.
In an unusual show of class (or more likely because of public pressure to stop being such an ass), President Obama actually made a condolence call to the widow of slain Deputy Darren Goforth.
