On Friday Deputy Darren Goforth, 47, was putting gas in his patrol car when a murderer approached him from behind said nothing and fired multiple shots. Once he fell to the ground, the killer fired more shots at the deputy. The father of two was pronounced dead at the scene. While he wasn’t there and did not hold the gun, President Obama killed Deputy Goforth as surely as if he pulled the trigger.
Yesterday at the Minnesota State Fair protesters carrying a black lives matter flag marched shouting an anti-cop chant,”pigs in a blanket, fry ’em like bacon.” The President wasn’t in Minnesota, but he was there in spirit, leading the chants.
Make no mistake about it—this anti-Cop movement can trace its roots directly to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. It started near the very beginning of his presidency when he admitted he didn’t know the facts and then accused the Cambridge 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. 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.”
That was the omen, Obama was foreshadowing what he thought about “the men in blue” who put their lives on the line to protect their communities.
When the shooting of Michael Brown by officer Darryl Wilson threatened to rip apart Ferguson Obama was quick to judge Speaking at the annual Congressional Black Caucus Foundation dinner in Washington:
But the anger and the emotion that followed his death awakened our nation once again to the reality that people in this room have long understood, which is, in too many communities around the country, a gulf of mistrust exists between local residents and law enforcement.
Too many young men of color feel targeted by law enforcement, guilty of walking while black, or driving while black, judged by stereotypes that fuel fear and resentment and hopelessness. We know that, statistically, in everything from enforcing drug policy to applying the death penalty to pulling people over, there are significant racial disparities.
Of course if the President bothered to wait for the facts he would have learned that Michael Brown was a teen-aged thug who had just ripped of a store and who after trying to steal his weapon was rushing at Wilson attempting to do him harm. Brown’s killing was justifiable homicide and the fake meme started by his friend and constant WH visitor Al Sharpton, “Hands Up Don’t Shoot” was a fantasy, but truth never stopped this president from his goal.
Remember the passive aggressive statement Obama made during the April riots in Baltimore? He condemned the rioting but first said:
“We have seen too many instances of what appears to be police officers interacting with individuals, primarily African-American, often poor, in ways that raise troubling questions. It comes up, it seems like, once a week now,” Obama said. He said it’s not new, but there’s new awareness as a result of cameras and social media.
I am not saying that there are no bad cops, but the vast majority are good people who put their lives on the line to protect our families.
Deputy Darren Goforth was assassinated on Friday he wasn’t shot by a criminal trying to escape (not that it would have been better) he was a white cop shot in the back by a black murderer. Clearly he is an extremist member of a movement started by Barack Obama. Two kids lost a father and wife lost a husband thanks to Barack Obama.
Deputy Goforth was killed because he was a cop, and it was an extension of the “black lives matter,” movement partially given birth by this president’s statement about cops acting stupidly, fed by comments such as “If I had a son he would look like Trayvon Martin,” taking a something that had nothing to do with race, and making it racial. Every time he greeted professional bigot Al Sharpton Obama nursed the moment toward adulthood, each time this president made one-sided anti-cop statements after an incidents where people died at the hands of police whether justified or not, Obama was raising the level of hatred against our protectors. This president who was supposedly going to unify the country, has divided us more than any president in recent history, and worse he has set up those who serve and protect as his personal scapegoats.
