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.

    I use to think he was an okay guy but not so much now.

    who would have ever thought that the creation of the Republican Teabagger WHITE RACIST Organization would have led to this type of violence and disrespect for Government Authority?

    Your forthcoming APOLOGY will be greatly appreciated by this American, Mr. Giuliani, just as soon as it’s received.

          Not so much anymore there kiddo. I use to have dreams but then I woke up and the cold light of day hit me. I wish for my grandsons sake we could become that nation of dreamers again.

    This from the same people that cheered Bundy and his people for pointing guns at law enforcement,and two of them went out there and killed a cop

    • granpa.usthai December 21st, 2014 at 2:47 pm

      actually 2 cops and 1 civilian (if anyone wants to keep score).

        (that we actually know about)

    Rudy Giuliani helped create the problem people are now dealing with and now he wants to blame someone who is interested in solving the problem. How typically republican.

  5. Obewon December 21st, 2014 at 3:10 pm

    Giuliani & guber Pataki’s talking point flameouts prove cons biggest problem are their average 94 IQ’s, having minus 11 IQ point average deficit vs 106 average liberal IQ.
    Rudy makes more sense lisping ‘thuffer’n thuckotash’ on TV.

  6. Mephistophiles December 21st, 2014 at 3:12 pm

    I think all that asbestos dust has turned Giuliani senile.

  7. JimmyPete December 21st, 2014 at 3:14 pm

    Rudy is a POS, he made New York insecure and vulnerable to Terrorism, then he had a 6 good weeks, he claims he reduced crime but crime went down in most big cities during the time he was mayor of NYC, meanwhile he exacerbated the racial tensions in the city and we are still reaping that whirlwind.

    • Jake December 21st, 2014 at 3:29 pm

      Right on! I still remember “its Giuliani time” the motto of the racist NYPD as they tortured Abner Louima.
      What a schmuck Giuliani was – worst mayor in the history of New York. His incompetence led to the deaths of hundreds, maybe thousands during 9/11 yet the Republican-controlled media have completely turned that story arse-over-tit to make him out to be some kind of hero. Just ask the average Firefighter in NYC what they think of Giuliani – and be prepared for a colorful answer.

        “Just ask the average Firefighter in NYC what they think of Giuliani – and be prepared for a colorful answer” You sure hit the nail on the head on that one!! I can’t stand that man!!

    Rudy just needs to shut up and crawl back in his hole….

      Take Kerrick with him too

    Uh no cupcake, we blamed the shooter. Sarah Palin is just a sad byproduct of the right wing nut subculture that advocates violence when they don’t get their own way at the polls.

    “We’ve had four months of propaganda starting with the president that everybody should hate the police,”
    Yet… this may not be the stupidest thing he’s ever said.

    Rudy Giuliani: “We had no terrorist attacks while Bush was president

    • Obewon December 21st, 2014 at 10:07 pm

      An entire fertilizer load of GOP tried to shovel that same talking point load!
      Faux news at 5 PM co-host Dana Perino said on November 24, 2009, that “we did not have a terrorist attack on our country during President Bush’s term!”. On July 13, 2011, GOP TV at 5 PM Perino’s co-host Eric (Errant) Bolling tried it again saying: “I don’t remember any terrorist attacks on American soil” between 2000 and 2008!”

      I think even Condi Rice may have also tried to irresponsibly claim “We had no terrorist attacks while Bush was president”-GOP balking points are only believed by those with air-ferns, where humans have a cerebral cortex. Monica Crowley claimed on January 6, 2010, that after the 9-11 attacks, the Bush administration “had a 100% perfect track record in keeping the homeland safe from an Islamic terrorist attack.”

      Relaity: “In its 2008 report, the State Department counted 19 private U.S. citizens killed as a result of terrorism in 2007 alone. The report also counted more than 40,000 terrorist attacks worldwide between 2005 and 2007.”

      On May 3, 2010, GOP TV’s Charles Krauthammer said there were “no successful attacks in the United States” after the 9-11 attacks.

    And the right wing pundits (like Kristol) wonder why there are no
    protests for murdered cops. Where’s the outrage over the white racist
    cop killer Eric Frein? Where’s the outrage over the white racists Jerad
    and Amanda Miller? FFS! #PoliceLivesMatter

        Please, elucidate on your notions of how there is civilized society. I guarantee when you do you paint it in the color of your own vision. You for all your ranting are as blind as anyone else but the difference you are blinded by your own juvenile hubris.

    Shut up and go sit in the corner Rudy

  14. garry lafferty December 22nd, 2014 at 1:53 pm

    Giuliani mental back ground check on guns would help. The cop killer was mental case with a gun. Rudy have you had a mental back ground check? You say insane things about Obama. Let the cops family’s rest in peace. Then it back to corruption in police action on citizens.
