Peter King: ‘Liberal Rags’ Should Call Sharpton Instead Of Cops
Congressman Peter King has a problem with “liberal rags” that are critical of police.
…King (R-NY) told Fox & Friends Monday morning that “liberal rags” should either respect the job of police officers or depend on each other for safety.
“The next time an editorial writer or some of these commentators, instead of calling a cop, call Al Sharpton, and see what happens then,” King said.
“This is what goes on all the time, 24/7, cops putting their lives on the line,” King said. “I just wish the New York Times and Newsday and these other liberal rags would realize that and not put it all out of proportion.”

Wow, went straight to racism and is too ignorant to even see it.

Why not call Sean Hannity? He is no slouch when it comes to demonizing law enforcement
“However, I also want to say this. The ranch standoff that took place out in Nevada was not about a man named Cliven Bundy. At the heart of this issue was my belief that our government is simply out of control. Now, to me, this was about a federal agency’s dangerous response to a situation that could have resulted in a catastrophe, and that means people dying and people being shot, kind of comparable to what we saw in Waco, Texas.”

Liberal rags? So who should we turned to? The fair and balanced people?
You know the network that posted pictures of a riot in Venezuela and tried to pass it off as Baltimore?

The McDonald’s sign was a giveaway. Baltimore is the only city with a McDonald’s.

And butt wipe congressmen shouldn’t out our allies that work in secret with us…

So because they’re paid for with our taxes, we don’t have a right to expect them to treat everyone fairly? Is that what you’re saying, Pete? If we don’t like exactly what we get, just shut the f*ck up and take it, is that it?

We don’t complain about them putting their lives on the line. We, in fact, appreciate it very much. What we take exception to is needlessly putting OUR lives on the line… Nobody is above the law, even those who enforce it.

Every occupation has rules, even law enforcement. What King seems to want is to permit police officers to do whatever they want, even abuse and kill our citizens at will, and get away with it. Nope. If those in other occupations are held accountable for their transgressions, police officers should also be held responsible for their transgressions. King seems to conveniently forget that police officers, along with politicians, are public servants and are subject to serving with our permission. We should hold police officers responsible for acts of brutality and for the unnecessary killing of our citizens in the streets of America, and we should hold politicians like King responsible for vomiting this kind of BS into our society.

I think Rep. King is 100% right and I am a New Yorker. I am not a constituent of his nor am I a Republican but here in NYC there has been a systematic campaign of abuse and defamation of the NYPD by America’s # 1 racist, Al Sharpton, all the Sharptonite hangers-on and demagogues. I can assure you leftists who are an infection of honorable liberalism that when DeBlasio comes up for reelection he is going to get a strong challenge from every Democrat EXCEPT the ultra-liberal loudmouthed whites and those blacks who believe in black racism and in black exemption from the requirement of obeying the law.
