Doubling Down on Division

In the wake of the horrific slaughter of police in Dallas Thursday, and four copy cat attacks on police Friday, President Obama, and to a greater extent, Hillary Clinton, doubled down on the myth of systemic racism in law enforcement and placed the blame on white Americans. President Obama used what could have been a healing moment for the nation on Saturday to instead perpetuate the myth of systemic police brutality and to push for gun control. Clinton’s incendiary remarks did not even include a full condemnation of the gunman … and lacked almost any real empathy for the officers’ grieving family members and friends. During a speech at the NATO Summit in Warsaw, Poland, on Saturday, Obama at first lauded the Dallas officers for their service to their country and condemned the horrific actions of the “demented” suspected gunman, Micah Xavier Johnson. But he quickly pivoted to his tried-and-tested rhetoric that has landed a torn nation at this juncture in the first place.
