Police officers have become sitting ducks since Ferguson, because of horrific treatment by the media and the Obama Administration. As the “Black Lives Matter” hate group has ratcheted up their sick rhetoric, there has been a complete absence of leadership telling them to stop.
23 cops have been gunned down in the line of duty in 2015 so far, with four months yet to go.
And as Sheriff David Clarke said last week, it is Obama himself who started the “War on Police”rhetoric top begin with.
Well, today, Obama was in Boston for his Labor Day Speech, with hundreds of dignitaries invited, and police typically greeting the president after the event.
Not this year. Because the Boston Police Union decided to show Obama what cops think of him…and BOYCOTTED it…leading Administration officials to send an angry response to the Mayor.
From Gateway Pundit via Boston Herald:
Jerry Flynn, a Lowell cop on leave while serving as executive director of the New England Police Benevolent Association, said his organization’s executive board has chosen to boycott President Obama’s Labor Day breakfast address in Boston today to make a statement about violence against police:
“Our members are enraged at his lack of support of law enforcement. It’s clear that he has an agenda, and unfortunately the police are not part of his agenda.
Let’s face it, (there have been) eight people killed in a nine-day period, eight police officers, and Obama’s silence has been deafening.
This is a horror show, this is an epidemic of lawless people trying to kill police officers for no apparent reasons. Case in point is the lieutenant who was pumping gas in Houston. Over 7,000 people were at that church, and where was he (Obama)? Why wasn’t he there instead of a unity breakfast?”
Referring to the looting and destruction in Ferguson, Mo., following the shooting of Michael Brown, Flynn continued:
“I mean, he had the opportunity to do things then and he didn’t, and all he’s done is escalated and allowed these people that are hellbent on causing problems to do so. We can’t continue to have people who have no intention to do anything but to be disruptive. These aren’t good citizens. These are thugs who go out and try to cause problems.
Obama sparked the war on cops — particularly White officers — in his first six months in office. When his former professor Henry Louis Gates started a confrontation with Cambridge Police near Harvard, Obama injected himself into the situation, saying the cops “acted stupidly,” outraging police nationwide.
After Michael Brown’s death in Ferguson, Obama race-baited the case, promoting the fraudulent “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot” narrative that never happened. And he even sent three Administration officials to Brown’s funeral despite the fact that Brown was a thug who tried to kill a cop, before he was shot.
Last week, Texas Deputy Darren Goforth was gunned down in cold blood, and two officers in Vegas wereyesterday in Las Vegas, for no reason other than the perpetrators were targeting cops for death.
Police Lives Matter, and the fact that the president is doing nothing about the vile rhetoric and brutality toward cops speaks volumes.
Obama loves to hear himself talk, but he never speaks up when it matters most.
