Which Obama do you think we should believe? The Obama sho has been sowing seeds of division of anti-cop sentiment during his entire Presidency, or the Obama who is now calling for no more division and peace?
President Obama condemned the ‘cowardly and reprehensible’ attack on police officers in Baton Rouge – and promised: ‘Justice will be done.’
Three officers were confirmed dead and a further three were injured after a shooting at a gas station along Airline Highway in the Louisiana city on Sunday morning.
One suspect, Gavin Eugene Long, 29, was shot dead while two other ‘persons of interest’ were questioned but later released without charge.
In a statement, Obama blasted the assault on officers ‘who put their lives on the line for ours every day’ and branded the perpetrators ‘cowards who speak for no one.’
And in an address to the nation shortly after 5pm, President Obama reiterated his pledge that justice would be done, adding: ‘Attacks on police are an attack on all of us and the rule of law that makes society possible.’
Urging Americans to unite in the wake of the latest tragedy, he added: ‘We need to temper our words and open our hearts.’

The head of the Cleveland Police Union says that Obama has blood on his hands after this shooting:
The head of a Cleveland police union reacted to the shooting of multiple officers in Baton Rouge by going off on President Obama and a media culture that helps boost anti-cop narratives.
He said that Obama has “validated the false narrative and the nonsense that Black Lives Matter and the media are pressing out there,” and he said the president has “blood on his hands” that he won’t be able to wash off. (Mediaite)
Obama has really changed his tone since recent police killings. Here’s what he sounded like not too long ago:
Consider that at about the same time the nation’s first black president was speaking to police chiefs and prosecutors, a group called Black Lives Matterwas denouncing police brutality in Times Square, real and imagined. In another sad coincidence of timing, they marched as the city was mourning the murder of NYPD Officer Randolph Holder, the fourth New York City cop killed in 11 months.
Officer Holder was black, as is his alleged killer, but that mattered not a whit to the protesters. One told Fox News that she hopes Holder’s family “realizes that his life is included in the ‘Black Lives Matter’ slogan.”
“We’re talking about black bodies being persecuted across the world,” she added.
This is nonsense on steroids, yet these are the president’s shock troops. Obama and confidante Valerie Jarrett earlier met with the radicals leading the Black Lives Matter movement and encouraged them to keep going, the group has said.
Obama, at last Thursday’s event, praised the group again while also claiming that “everybody understands that all lives matter. Everybody wants strong, effective law enforcement. Everybody wants their kids to be safe when they are walking across the street. Nobody wants to see police officers who are doing their jobs fairly hurt. Everybody understands it’s a dangerous job.”
