Earlier this week, two Ferguson police officers were shot by race-baiting protesters after the police chief resigned. Both officers were seriously injured and remain hospitalized at this time.
On Thursday, Obama’s Department of Justice released a statement about the shooting, and it’s sickening. In it, Attorney General Eric Holder has the nerve to actually defend the demonstrators:
“This heinous assault on two brave law enforcement officers was inexcusable and repugnant. I condemn violence against any public safety officials in the strongest terms, and the Department of Justice will never accept any threats or violence directed at those who serve and protect our communities—from this cowardly action, to the killing of an officer in Philadelphia last week while he was buying a game for his son, to the tragic loss of a Deputy U.S. Marshal in the line of duty in Louisiana earlier this week.Such senseless acts of violence threaten the very reforms that nonviolent protesters in Ferguson and around the country have been working towards for the past several months. We wish these injured officers a full and speedy recovery. We stand ready to offer any possible aid to an investigation into this incident, including the department’s full range of investigative resources. And we will continue to stand unequivocally against all acts of violence against cops whenever and wherever they occur.”
This statement is puny at best. In Holder’s little fantasy world, the protesters are still non-violent people fighting for their rights from “the man.” Yeah…Right.
Then again, we can’t say we were surprised by this. Obama has shown time and time again that he has no respect for both our military and the American police force.
