Giuliani: People ‘Hate The Police’ Because Of Obama
[su_right_ad]Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani accuses President Obama of engaging in “propaganda” causing people 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 early 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 said he did not agree with statements like those from Pat Lynch, the president of the largest police union in New York City, who said the current New York City mayor, Bill de Blasio (D), had blood on his hands.
“I think it goes to far to blame the mayor for the murder or to ask for the mayor’s resignation,” Giuliani said.
“I feel bad for the mayor,” Giuliani continued. “He must be heartbroken over the loss of two police officers. I can’t believe this is what he wanted. I don’t think he’s a bad man in any way.”
But, Giuliani said, de Blasio is “pursuing the wrong policies” and should not have given protesters demonstrating against the police killings of Eric Garner and Michael Brown as much leeway.
So we shouldn’t blame the mayor, but let’s blame President Obama. Riiight.
