You’ve heard the expression “Money makes the world go round”. There’s truth in that.
The questionable murders of five law enforcement officers in Dallas, with the wounding of seven more, was a coordinated assault subsequent a Black Lives Matter Rally in the north Texas city. A wave of protests has swept the nation after two black men were killed, one each in Louisiana and Minnesota, this week.
It was the deadliest single day for law enforcement officers in America since the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 – but in this case, law enforcement officers were precisely targeted. Dallas police Chief David Brown stated, “(They were) working together with rifles, triangulating at elevated positions in different points in the downtown area where the march ended up going.”
But is this targeting of law enforcement part of a bigger plan, with attempts to eliminate law enforcement officers across the country, not just in Dallas? Plus, who is accountable for this rash of shootings of law enforcement officers, and what is the ultimate objective?
Many are holding Twitter at least to some extent accountable, because it has not only supplied a platform for anti-police invective, it has failed to delete calls for murdering law enforcement, either through negligence or worse. It is noted that thousands of posts have already been in “tweets,” which includes calls to “kill pigs,” and “kill police.”
One tweet is from Ben Baller, Kanye West’s personal jeweler, who has nearly a half-million Twitter users reading his calls for violence upon the police. Among his tweets is, “I want to kill 100 cops every time I hear ‘stop resisting.’ RIP,” and then the hashtag “Alton Sterling.” Sterling is one of the black men killed in an altercation with law enforcement.
Baller also lauded Christopher Dorner, calling him “a legend.” Dorner was dismissed from the Los Angeles police force in 2013, then posted an 11-page “manifesto” in which he called for the “unconventional and asysmmetric warfare” upon LAPD. Baller’s profanity-laced Tweet stated Dorner “tried to [do] something about” the police. Dorner shot law enforcement officers and civilians (which includes family members of officers) well before he died in a later shoot-out with law enforcement at a cabin in the San Bernardino Mountains.
Another Tweet that Twitter had not taken off as I composed this post, written by “My Precious,”portrayed a masked man slitting the throat of a police officer, with the caption, “SOON THE TALES WILL TURN.”
Other Tweets also called for the murder of law enforcement officers, which includes such vicious inciting to violence as, “Take the pigs to the slaughter house,” and “kill em all.”
Twitter does take out some “insulting” Tweets, but unbelievably, had not taken out incitement to murder against law enforcement officers prior to the Dallas shootings.
President Barack Obama referred to yesterday (prior to the shooting of the Dallas officers) for a “change” in the justice system to cope with what he called “a broader set of racial disparities.” Obama stated the killings of black men in Louisiana and Minnesota are not isolated occurrences, but highlighted issues about bias against African-Americans, saying that blacks are being shot by law enforcement at a higher rate than whites.
Black Lives Matter (BLM) is a movement that Governor Chris Christie of New Jersey has accused with “calling for the murder of police officers.” BLM marches last year in Minnesota incorporated the chant, “Pigs in a blanket, fry ’em like bacon” is just one piece of proof for Christie’s accusations. However, Obama has protected BLM, and backs up the assertions made by one of its founders, Alicia Garza, who stated blacks are “uniquely, systematically, and savagely targeted by the state.”
But is that accurate?
Larry Elder, a conservative columnist and an African-American who disagrees with those daring statements, stated, “In the last several decades the numbers of blacks killed by cops are down nearly 75 percent.” Elder put in, “In 2012, according to the CDC, 140 blacks were killed by police. That same year 386 whites were killed by police. Over a 13-year period from 1999 to 2011, the CDC reports that 2,151 whites were killed by cops – and 1,130 blacks were killed by cops.”
While this still appears like a disproportionate number of blacks being killed – they only make up about 13 percent of the population compared to whites being about 62 percent of the population – based on the Bureau of Justice statistics, between 2002 and 2011 blacks made up about half of all murder victims in the United States, averaging more than 7,500 per year. And while offender statistics are rudimentary for a variety of reasons, it is believed that about 90 percent of black murder victims were killed by other blacks.
Studies reveal that law enforcement officers might in fact be more cautious to make use of lethal force when interacting with blacks than whites. David Klinger, in his book Into the Kill Zone: A Cop’s Eye View of Deadly Force, interviewed hundreds of police officers, and authored, “I’ve had multiple officers tell me they were worried in the wake of a shooting because they shot a black person, and I’ve had multiple officers tell me that they were glad that the person they shot was white.”
Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke, who’s black, was especially crucial of the BLM movement, and of Obama, accusing the president himself had “started this war on police,” with his inflammatory rhetoric. One Georgia BLM activist literally made a video calling for blacks “to take office’s guns, take over a police station and kill white people.”
The present “war” against the cops started during the Obama administration and the unrest in Ferguson, Missouri, where a black criminal, Michael Brown, was shot to death by a white law enforcement officer, Darren Wilson. A grand jury eventually investigated the event interviewed 40 witnesses – 38 of whom were black – and came to the conclusion that Wilson was acting in self-defense, yet the story is still repeated that Brown was gunned down while attempting to surrender.
However, this “war” against the cops is not totally new. James Fitzgerald, a ex – police detective from Newark, New Jersey, lately conducted a national “Support Your Local Police – and keep them Independent!” speaking tour for the John Birch Society, and addressed this problem.
Fitzgerald explained to his audience in Oklahoma City in May that the roots of the violence against law enforcement are decades old, and have continued to the present. He stated that the Judiciary Committee of the U.S. Senate had put together a report in 1960 entitled “Communist Plot Against Free World Police.” The report came to the conclusion that communists were working to sully the reputation of the nation’s police forces.
A couple of years after the article was publicized, Sargent Shriver, a brother-in-law of President John Kennedy, was director of the Peace Corps for President Lyndon Johnson. From that position, Shriver was funneling money to “community organizers” [remember Obama’s former role as a “community organizer” in Chicago] in Newark, New Jersey, who were working to radicalize young black Americans. Shriver was cautioned that these groups were guided by ideological communists, who had posters of communists such as Mao, Lenin, and Che Guevera gracing the walls of their headquarters. He ignored the issues, but the agitation against the cops carried on until the infamous Newark race riots happened.
Fitzgerald also discussed the Freddie Gray incident in Baltimore, where three of the six officers involved in Gray’s arrest and transport were black.
Exacerbating the present racial animus and issues is Black Lives Matter, which criticizes every killing of every black person by law enforcement, spreading discontent. Black Lives Matter is a radical organization established by Marxists, Fitzgerald stated. He utilized photographs of demonstrators around the country, with signs all which includes the word, “RevCom.US.” He defined Rev.Com.US is for “Revolutionary Communist Party of the United States.” BLM, a group that President Obama has protected repeatedly, teaches chants that glamorize the killing of law enforcement.
The Obama administration has also worsened the issues in many ways. In one case, Obama’s first attorney general, Eric Holder, in fact funneled $1.5 million to the Bronx Defenders, a group that produced a rap song about how to kill policemen!
What is the purpose of this leftist attack upon the cops?
Fitzgerald accused that the Justice Department was utilizing something known as the Police Data Initiative to accomplish “federalization of the local police.” The way this is to be achieved is through “standards” for local law enforcement both developed and enforced by the Justice Department.
Fitzgerald declared that a principal goal of the Left is to nationalize the police function. Fitzgerald provided some examples of nationalized police forces, which includes the Cheka of the Soviet Union and the Gestapo in National Socialist Germany.
An boost in lawlessness, largely owing to the unwillingness of law enforcement to confront some criminal activity in minority neighborhoods in such places as Chicago, where the murder rate has spiraled upward, is planned to lead some Americans to think the local law enforcement are not able of controlling violent crime, Fitzgerald foretold. A nationalized police force will then be introduced as the solution, he cautioned.
Al Sharpton has requested an “end” to local policing, with that function taken over by a nationalized police force.
And, needless to say, the heartbreaking murders of the law enforcement officers in Dallas will be yet another talking point with those who would like to disarm law-abiding American citizens.
With a former “community organizer” in residence in the White House, this is not shocking.
