Thursday, July 7th in Dallas, Texas marked the deadliest day for law enforcement officials since September 11th, 2001.
Micah Xavier Johnson cowardly executed 6 police officers and wounded many more. Johnson had made it known that he wanted to “kill white people, especially white police officers,” Dallas police chief David Brown said. The blatantly racist act shocked the entire nation the same way Dylan Roof did when he brutally murdered 9 members of an African American congregation in South Carolina.
In the case of Dylan Roof, Americans were lectured by Obama on the deep-rooted racism that exists in the country. One would have thought that Obama would see the glaring similarities between the racist South Carolina and Dallas attacks and double down on his belief that America has a racism problem. Instead, he ignored the anti-white hatred completely and pandered for “gun control.”
Shortly after the deaths of two African Americans at the hands of police officers in Louisiana and Minnesota this week, Obama quickly stepped in front of the news cameras to discuss race and police. “To be concerned about these issues is not to be against law enforcement,” Obama said. “When people say black lives matter, it doesn’t mean blue lives don’t matter.”
Obama is wrong on this because when Black Lives Matter activists call for the cold blooded killings of cops and are still celebrated as a “movement” and invited to the White House, it means that to him that the lives of police officers don’t matter.
According to the Daily Caller, when Obama finally addressed the Dallas sniper attack he completely avoided discussing racism. “We still don’t know all the facts,” Obama said. “What we do know is that there has been a vicious, calculated and despicable attack on law enforcement. Police in Dallas were on duty doing their jobs keeping people safe during peaceful protests.”
Obama wasted the opportunity to discuss and temper the violent anti-white sentiment of the Black Lives Matter movement and the mainstream media that promotes it. Instead, he used the opportunity to push his gun control agenda.
America does have a race problem, and the flames are being fanned by the highest office in the land. The president needs to stop making excuses and political statements and start facing the truth.
