Life is so much easier if you cooperate with cops. Really, it is.
Sure, Obama had his fabled "beer summit" with the police officer and Gates--but two years later his party openly embraced the police-hating Occupy movement. And last week the Democrats formally endorsed the police-hating Black Lives Matter group. Where was Obama's condemnation when that leftist rabble chanted "Pigs in a blanket--fry 'em like bacon" earlier this week?
Three years ago offshoots of the Occupy movement were holding "Fuck the Police" marches.
The White House sent three representatives to the funeral of Michael Brown who charged a police officer in Ferguson, Missouri--the cop used justified force in shooting the violent shoplifter.
Obama has never given a strong show of support for police officers--who, unlike most people, put their lives on the line whenever they report to work. That's because Obama does not govern for the benefit of over 300 million Americans. He's all about placating his leftist base--which is at best suspicious of the police.
But cops protect us from anarchy. Obama either doesn't get it or he doesn't care.
Last week a police officer was murdered while pumping gas. Yesterday a police officer in Obama's adopted home state of Illinois was shot to death while responding to a report of suspicious activity.
Cops lives matter.
There's a war on cops now and it can be traced back to when Obama said a police officer "acted stupidly" when he was simply doing his job.
