Speaking in regards to the shooting incident that took place this summer between a police officer and a civilian in Ferguson, MI., Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan proclaimed that violence was justified in response to the grand jury decision not to indict officer Darren Wilson for the death of Michael Brown.
Farrakhan threatened that if the demands on behalf of those protesting the police weren’t met, “We’ll tear this goddamn country apart”.
Arguing that violence was justified by the “law of retaliation” mentioned in the Koran, Farrakhan concluded his threat by stating, “We going to die anyway. Let’s die for something”.
Two week’s later Farrakhan’s resentment of the police echoed throughout the streets of New York City and Washington, D.C. in marches led by Al Shaprton in which protesters chanted “What do we want? Dead Cops”.
A week later the resentment overflowed as Shaprton and Farrakhans’ threats were fulfilled by Ismaaiyl Abdullah Brinsley as he executed two uniformed NYPD officers on Saturday afternoon.
After stating “I’m putting wings on pigs today” then referencing both Brown and the controversial chokehold death of Eric Garner on his instagram account, Brinsley executed officer Wenjian Liu and officer Rafael Ramos before turning the gun on himself.
The execution of Ramos and Liu should serve as an example of what happens when a man is driven to act from the incitement that told him it was ok to do so. “What do we want? Dead Cops”.
“Fear and political correctness reign on the streets as few in public office will call out the cop hating cultists seeking racially driven retribution”, writes Michelle Malkin. This climate was precipitated by the actions taken by the Obama adminstration to demonize and politicize police officers throughout the country.
Take for instance the fact that the President met behind closed doors with activists such as Ashley Yates who warned, in much of the same way that Farrakhan did, of a fierce backlash if a grand jury didn’t indict officer Darren Wilson.
Yates stated, “If they can’t serve justice in this, the people have every right to go out and express their rage in a manner that is equal to what we have suffered”.
She further went on to threaten “We’re going to take our anger out on the people who have failed us, and if [police] are prepared to deal with that, then let them have at”.
To serve justice in the eyes of those likes Yates, Sharpton and Farrkhan, one would need to completely disregard our grand jury system as evidence and facts to the contrary fail to align with your own predisposition to judge basic facts as racist.
Also involved in this closed door meeting hosted by Obama was famous race baiter Al Sharpton who quoted the President in stating that Obama had told the activists involved to “stay on course” in the lead up to the grand jury decision.
What these secret closed door meetings reveal is a White House that is more than culpable in actively participating in what Malkin describes as racially driven retribution.
Groups like Yates and racist agitators like Sharpton boiled over with rage as the Eric Garner death in New York City rendered no indictment by a grand jury against officer Daniel Pantaleo. Justice wasn’t served in their eyes and two week’s later as two NYPD officers lay dead on a street in Brooklyn, it was served.
By using Yates’ own definition of justice “the right to go out and express rage in a manner that is equal to what was suffered”, Brinsley took it upon himself to execute two officers in a revenge killing he saw justified as an injustice had been done against Michael Brown and Eric Garner.
What is even more sickening is that this kind of thinking is now prevalent as activists and race hustlers are given higher priority by the White House rather than the officers.
Thus, not only does the Obama adminstration de-legitimize our police officers by labeling them racist exhibiting a “subconscious fear of folks who look different”, but he legitimizes activists in giving them unprecedented access to White House meetings not granted to law enforcement officials. The narrative is completely one sided as this adminstration perpetuates lies after lies built on completely fabricated stories of race.
Furthermore, to see this in play, look to your average nightly news cast and count how many minutes are spent giving law enforcement the ability to explain their version of events that activists label as racist. The minutes add up to zero as the mainstream media is complicit in de-legitimizing our police officers.
This serves only one purpose and that is to further tear apart the trust that exists between the community and officers who give their lives to protect it.
Chuck Canterbury, President of the Fraternal Order of Police (FOP), perfectly articulated the frustration and animosity felt by officers who have been used time after time as scapegoats under this adminstration without having their voices heard.
Canterbury, in the FOP statement writes, “Politicians have spent the months since the tragedy in Ferguson piously wringing their hands and bemoaning the lack of trust by the minority community. Mayors and Congressmen and Senators and professional racists from all sides have seized on the moment to advance their self-serving opinions of what is wrong in America as a hyperventilating media nods knowingly and faithfully reports each and every word. Enough is Enough“.
If the deaths of officer Liu and Ramos are not to be in vain then its time our media stop perpetuating lies on behalf of this adminstration that lament our officers as racists while deflecting to mention the reason as to why crime occurs in the first place. The Obama adminstration must also be held accountable for horrific events their lies helped to cause.
This is no easy task but we can begin by looking to individuals like Canterbury for answers like those he gives in his very next sentence of the FOP statement.
We are ignoring the “decaying infrastructure of our cities, the substandard educational system, the nonexistent families, the poor nutrition, the lack of employment opportunities–all of which create a toxic environment which breeds crime”, notes Canterbury.
Instead, he concludes, we “focus with laser vision on every real or perceived mistake made by the cops fighting a running battle to keep the streets safe for our poorest and most disadvantaged citizens in our country’s worst pockets”.
If we are to stop this adminstration from tearing our country apart then we must start by listening to those who we entrust to protect us.
Enough is Enough!
