During his tenure, former Big Apple mayor Rudy Giuliani and the NYPD mutually supported and respected one another. Now Rudy, the mayor whose presence became a source of strength after the terrorist attacks of 9/11, has spoken out about the brutal, senseless assassination of NYPD Officers Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos.
What can one say about the two men shot in the head at point blank range as they sat eating lunch in their squad car on a Saturday afternoon?
What can one say about the loss of a beloved husband and father of a 13-year-old boy – a dad who, in his spare time, trained to be a chaplain at his church? What can one say to comfort Chinese immigrant parents whose American dream turned into a nightmare with the devastating loss of their only son, not to mention that son’s bride of two months who, when he was not on duty, liked to walk with her husband to the local florist to purchase Lotto tickets?
Rudy Giuliani, who is honest and oftentimes abrupt, has plenty to say.
Most sane people believe that race hustlers like Al Sharpton and Eric Holder are culpable for inflaming the racial acrimony that led up to the shootings. Moreover, most also believe that NYC Mayor de Blasio’s comment about telling his bi-racial son Dante to avoid cops certainly didn’t help an already volatile situation.
Surprisingly, for the most part Rudy Giuliani’s focus is elsewhere. The former mayor has publicly placed the blame for the senseless slaughter of two innocent men at Barack Obama’s feet.
In fact, Giuliani even expressed sympathy for de Blasio. Before pointing out that by giving rioters too much latitude, de Blasio “pursued the wrong policies,” the ex-mayor actually called the current mayor a good man who’s likely heartbroken about the deaths of the two police officers.
That aside, it’s President Obama that Giuliani has been the hardest on. Not mincing words, Giuliani pointed the finger at Obama’s “propaganda” as the influence that has encouraged people to “hate the police.”
On that count the former mayor is 100% spot-on!
Starting back in 2009 after the Henry Louis Gates Jr. incident with Cambridge, Massachusetts Police Sgt. Joseph Crowley, before having all the facts, Obama declared that “the police acted stupidly,” which was later found to be untrue.
It doesn’t stop there. More recently, the president sat down with People magazine to express the following opinion about race relations and police:
“It’s one thing for me to be mistaken for a waiter at a gala. It’s another thing for my son to be mistaken for a robber and to be handcuffed, or worse, if he happens to be walking down the street and is dressed the way teenagers dress.”
Based on that statement alone, by appearing more concerned about those defying the law than the ones attempting to enforce the law, it’s clear that the president is guilty of anti-police propaganda.
Granted, from a golf course in Oahu, in the wake of the Liu/Ramos slaying the president did release a statement saying he “unconditionally” condemned the murders.
So, as two men are prepared for burial, the man who has incited so much hostility toward law enforcement is now calling for the nation to “turn to words that heal?” Between rounds of golf and enjoying shaved ice on a $4 million vacation in Hawaii, Obama pointed out:
“Two brave men won’t be going home to their loved ones tonight, and for that, there is no justification. The officers who serve and protect our communities risk their own safety for ours every single day – and they deserve our respect and gratitude every single day.”
Suddenly, Barack Obama who, along with his “advisor” on race, Al Sharpton, chose to exclude the Ferguson police from their recent summit on the unrest in Ferguson, is saying that those he snubbed “deserve our respect and gratitude every single day?”
Sorry Mr. President, it’s too little and obviously too late.
After all, while two NYPD officers were lying on a cold slab in the NYC morgue, the People magazine issue – in which the president and his wife Michelle accuse police of targeting innocent youths for dressing in outfits similar to the one 28-year-old Black Muslim/gang member Ismaaiyl Brinsley was wearing when he blew away Officers Liu and Ramos – was still flying off the shelves.
Holding back nothing, in true Rudy style, Giuliani offered his honest assessment of the situation:
“We’ve had four months of propaganda starting with the president that everybody should hate the police. The protests are being embraced, the protests are being encouraged. The protests, even the ones that don’t lead to violence, a lot of them lead to violence, all of them lead to a conclusion: The police are bad, the police are racist. That is completely wrong.”
Yeah, but Obama has never explicitly said that “everybody should hate the police.”
That’s true. But by buddying up with race-baiters like Al Sharpton, the president is granting his implicit approval to those carrying signs that say “The only good cop is a dead cop!”
By remaining silent, the president loudly makes his opinion known in such a way that if confronted, he can say, “I’ve never said that I mistrust the police and that dead cops are the only good cops.” Although it’s a harsh comparison, Obama uses the same tactics as a sexual predator who gropes women in public, so that when confronted the pervert can say, “If I was doing something wrong, I wouldn’t do it out in the open.”
That’s why it takes someone with the backbone of Rudy Giuliani to point out that it’s Barack Obama’s stealth propaganda that is ultimately responsible for the pointless deaths of two NYPD cops.
