“Liberal politicians who label police as racists–specifically Hillary Clinton and Virginia Lt. Governor Ralph Northam–are to blame for essentially encouraging the murder of these police officers tonight,” Corey Stewart wrote in a Facebook post that has since been deleted, according to the Richmond Times-Dispatch.
That would be Donald Trump’s Virginia state campaign chairman reacting with breathtaking ignorance to last night’s violence in Dallas.
And this would be a Facebook post this morning from former San Diego talk show host and professional douchbag Steve Yuhas:
“From the White House to Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders – not to mention the obvious members of the Congressional Black Caucus – they’re partly to blame. What did they think would happen when they spared no opportunity to demonize police? Now they got what they wanted – a group of savages right here in America acted out in a way that is almost too horrific to describe, picking police officers off because they wanted to kill white people on that particular day. America’s Benghazi is Dallas and just like Benghazi, the White House is silent.”
And remember Joe Walsh, ass-faced former Republican congressman and full-time deadbeat dad? Here’s a few of his tweets from last night:
“When Obama goes after cops it opens the door for anti cop rhetoric and action.”
“10 Cops shot. You did this Obama. You did this liberals. You did this #BLM.”
“It’s time 4 patriotic Americans to stand up & stand against all the Cop haters – from Obama to the thugs on the street.”
And why didn’t Rudy Giuliani get the memo that nobody gives a shit about him anymore? He told Brian Williams on NBC this morning that Black Lives Matter was directly responsible for the police murders. “The reason cops feel that there is a target on their backs is because of groups like Black Lives Matter.” The sometimes cross dressing former prosecutor went on to make the preposterous statement that since “only” 1% of the murders of blacks in the U.S. were caused by the police, why do we get so bent out of shape?
The fascist sheriff of Milwaukee County, Wisconsin, David Clarke, had this to say on the odious “Fox and Friends” show this morning:
“I want to know whether we have heard from the cop-hater in chief Obama yet on this? Have we heard from Mrs. Bill Clinton, who threw up the hashtag #BlackLivesMatter yesterday? They exploited a situation, two situations, one in Louisiana and one in Minnesota. Horrible situations, no doubt, but again, especially the commander in chief opens his mouth, and he sticks his foot in it.”
And the ever-dependable Rush Limbaugh on his radio show this morning referred to Black Lives Matter as a “terrorist organization” committing mass murder”.
Trust me, these random comments barely scrape the surface of the dumb-fuck “thinking” that’s floating around out there this morning.
Of course it might be instructive to hear directly from “the cop-hater-in-chief”, Barrack Obama. It was, according to right wing psychotics, these quotes about the police-related deaths earlier in the week that led directly to the Dallas murders:
“They are symptomatic of the broader challenges within our criminal justice system, the racial disparities that appear across the system year after year, and the resulting lack of trust that exists between law enforcement and too many of the communities they serve,”
“To admit we’ve got a serious problem in no way contradicts our respect and appreciation for the vast majority of police officers who put their lives on the line to protect us every single day,” Obama said. “It is to say that, as a nation, we can and must do better to institute the best practices that reduce the appearance or reality of racial bias in law enforcement.”[Associated Press, 7/7/16]
And here, finally, are Obama’s comments about the Dallas incident. The next time someone accuses him of “politicizing” and “exploiting” tragedies, remember what the no-nothing right wing echo machine was up to this morning.
