(National Sentinel)Â Divisive: Throughout the Obama presidency, the 44th president used race to continually bash Americaâ€™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 Obamaâ€™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 Obamaâ€™s corner, reported:
President Obama said that police in Cambridge, Massachusetts, â€œacted stupidlyâ€ in arresting a prominent black Harvard professor last week after a confrontation at the manâ€™s home.
â€œI donâ€™t know, not having been there and not seeing all the facts, what role race played,â€ Obama said Wednesday night while taking questions after a White House news conference.
â€œBut I think itâ€™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 â€¦ that thereâ€™s a long history in this country of African-Americans and Latinos being stopped by law enforcement disproportionately,â€ 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 Partyâ€™s blessing.
Now, suddenly, the Left is all up in arms over President Donald J. Trumpâ€™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 FBIâ€™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 â€œhigh crime and misdemeanor.â€
During a back-and-forth regarding the recently-released Republican-authored â€œFISA Memoâ€ and the response to the memo on far-Left MSNBC, Thompson claimed he had â€œnever seen anythingâ€ like criticisms of the FBI and law enforcement, in general, being tossed about by Republicans.
â€œAnd the other thing, just to draw together, this whole thing with the NRA,â€ the host said. â€œThe NRA and Trump are attacking local law enforcement. The White House is attacking the FBI. Weâ€™ve never seen anything like this from Republicans.â€
This idiot went on to claim that any criticisms of police and the FBI maybe, sorta, could be considered â€œseditiousâ€ even.
â€œAnd as Iâ€™ve said on your show before, to me thatâ€™s seditious, which in and of itself is a high crime and misdemeanor,â€ Thompson claimed, adding: â€œIf I were [special counsel Robert] Mueller, I would go and pick him up today.â€
Oh, sure. Idiot seems to have conveniently forgotten the Democratsâ€™ roasting of FBI Director James Comey when he was being blamed for Hillary Clintonâ€™s election loss.
First of all, there is nothing â€œseditiousâ€ 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 Trumpâ€™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 â€” armed law enforcement officers â€” who failed to intervene in a school when children were inside being murdered.
For Peteâ€™s sake, if theyâ€™re not able to do that, then what in blazes are they doing being police officers?
And of course, letâ€™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 ainâ€™t coming from Republicans.
Itâ€™s coming from Democrats and their disgusting lapdogs in the Left-wing political commentariat.
