Hillary Clinton was unequivocal in her condemnation when speaking of the man who shot and killed three Baton Rouge police officers on Sunday. In a speech before the NAACP, Clinton said, “This madness has to stop. Killing police officers is a terrible crime. If you take aim at them, you take aim at all of us.”
No one can take issue with that statement, which should be the minimum sentiment we should expect from someone who wants to be president of the United States. But when you follow that statement up with more of the same anti-police rhetoric that inspired these shootings, don’t be surprised when people question your motives.
Hillary launched into a screed, attacking police for killing black Americans “more than any other group,” which is one of those comments that loses significance when you compare crime rates. Blacks, she said, are “charged with crimes and sentenced to longer prison terms than white men convicted of the same offenses.” She called for “end-to-end” reform in the justice system.
“I will start taking action on day one until we get this done,” she said.
But if “taking action” means four more years of a president who jumps to the RACIST COPS conclusion every time a disturbing video hits the news, Hillary Clinton will only further divide us along demographic lines. And it will mean that, because that is part and parcel with the Democratic Party’s overall strategy. Divide and conquer. It’s the oldest war-plan in the book.
And that’s a good word for it, too. War-plan. Because that’s where we’re headed as a nation. Metaphorically, for sure. But that might not be the end of it. When you have back-to-back incidents where domestic terrorists are opening fire on police officers, we’ve clearly moved beyond the talking point. But what else do you expect when you have the media and the left shoving this false narrative down the country’s throat? What else could possibly happen?
Democrats have engineered today’s racial unrest, hoping to take advantage of it politically. As we watch the violent repercussions unfold, let’s not forget that. Let’s not forget that for a second.
