Do you think that the Obamas truly has respect for police officers all across America? Or do you think that they have been instrumental in stoking the racial flames that have led to the division that we see now?
According to Katie Pavlich, Obama holds to an anti-police ideology:
As President Obama starts to wind down his tenure in the White House, with just a year and a half to go, he’s focusing on federalization of local police forces in the name of “justice.” Attorney General Loretta Lynch will be his go-to on this project, just as Eric Holder was before her.
The goal, according to the White House and Department of Justice, is to take a close look at police practices across the country to ensure minorities, in particular African-Americans, aren’t unfairly singled out for police scrutiny.
But Obama’s long record shows he isn’t necessarily interested in police brutality; instead, he holds an anti-police ideology.
It all started way back in 2009 when Obama, before he knew all of the facts, accused the police of “acting stupidly” after his friend, Harvard Professor Henry Gates, was briefly arrested for breaking into his home.
“I don’t know, not having been there and not seeing all the facts, what role race played,” the president said at the time. “But I think it’s fair to say, No. 1, any of us would be pretty angry; No. 2, that the Cambridge police acted stupidly in arresting somebody when there was already proof that they were in their own home; and, No. 3 … that there’s a long history in this country of African-Americans and Latinos being stopped by law enforcement disproportionately.”
This was a look at Obama’s perspective on the police — take a glance at the White House visitor log, the president’s consultants and the people he nominates, and you’ll get a clear picture of how anti-police he really is.
