Rudy Giuliani Actually Links Obama To The Murder Of Two Police Officers
Add Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani (R-9/11) to the list of Conservatives blaming Democratic politicians for the death of two police officers in New York.
[su_center_ad]Whenever Obama dares to mention race, Conservatives have consistently objected in lockstep. And when he doesn’t, they object to that, too.
Giuliani blamed the execution-style killing of two police officers on Saturday afternoon to the protests that broke out across the city following a grand jury’s failure to indict a police officer for killing Eric Garner.
Think Progress reports:
“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.”
Giuliani then argued that most of the city’s violence is centered in the black community through so-called “black against black” crime and heralded the police for keeping African Americans safe. “Actually, the people who do the most for the black community in America are the police,” he explained.
Immediately after the murders, Republicans quickly took to Their twitter accounts to blame Eric Holder, Al Sharpton and Mayor de Blasio.
Giuliani rejected that characterization saying, “I think it goes too far to blame the mayor for the murder or to ask for the mayor’s resignation. But I don’t think it goes too far to say that the mayor did not properly police the protests.” He blamed DeBlasio for allowing the protesters to “take over the streets” and “hurt police officers” and pledged that he would have confined the protesters to certain areas had he been mayor.
The former mayor also criticized President Barack Obama, Holder, and Al Sharpton for addressing the underlining racial tensions behind the failure to indict the white police officers who killed Garner and Mike Brown in Ferguson. “They have created an atmosphere of severe, strong, anti-police hatred in certain communities. For that, they should be ashamed of themselves,” he said.
Protesting is as American as apple pie. Freedom of speech is an actual thing.
We can play this game, too.
You know, I was equally saddened by the shooting of those two cops in Vegas, but nobody wanted to make a connection there. #BundyRanch
