It’s fascinating to watch right wingers suddenly concerned about “hate speech” and overheated rhetoric leading to attacks on police. How long have they been spewing poisonous, hateful rhetoric against President Obama, gays, liberals, feminists, black people, “thugs,” Muslims and anyone else not like them?
Do they suddenly feel responsible for their own hate speech and overheated rhetoric that led right wing domestic terrorists to shoot cops, carry out anti-government attacks and assassinate abortion doctors?
The killing of two NYPD officers is just as much of an outrage and just as unjustifiable as the killing of Eric Garner. We should be equally outraged at both.
But OF COURSE Fox News wants you to hate President Obama for the killing of the two cops.
And Rudy Giuliani wants you to blame Obama because, according to him, the President told everyone to “hate the police.”
“We’ve had four months of propaganda starting with the president that everybody should hate the police,” Giuliani said during an appearance on Fox News on Sunday. “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.”
“It’s A Good Life” is a classic Twilight Zone episode in which a child has godlike powers, uses them to torture people with his unstoppable whims and no one has any authority or power to stop him. That must be what it’s like to live in North Korea.
Normalizing relations with Cuba is an Obama plot to distract from Benghazi which was an Obama plot to distract from Obamacare which was an Obama plot to distract from the IRS scandal which was an Obama plot to distract from his birth certificate which was an Obama plot to distract from his botched response to Hurricane Katrina which was an Obama plot to distract from his failure to prevent 9/11.
You can thank Ted Cruz for allowing Democrats in the Senate to push through confirmations for many Obama nominees. Republicans are PISSED at Cruz for screwing up so badly. Some of them are demanding punishment for the teabagging Senator.
U.S. Senator Ted Cruz, the Texas Tea Party firebrand who nearly provoked the second government shutdown in a little over a year, on Tuesday apologized to his fellow Republicans for a strategy that backfired.
The apology to Republican senators came at a weekly closed-door lunch when Cruz, a possible 2016 presidential candidate, stood up and “was contrite and made an effort to explain to people he wished he hadn’t done it,” said a source familiar with what happened during the lunch meeting.
Cleveland police are already in deep trouble for abuse of force, but it looks like Cleveland Heights police haven’t learned the lesson either.
A Cleveland Heights officer drew his gun with his finger on the trigger and pointed it at an expectant father who was rushing home to his wife. She had just gone into labor. The man’s crime? He was going 38 mph in a 25 mph zone.
The cop held his gun on the man and threatened him with felony charges.
Bite me, Cleveland Heights Officer William Robinson. You represent what’s wrong with police — bullies with badges.
