In light of today’s execution-style killing of two New York City police officers, recent warnings of growing anti-police vigilantism by Twitchy founder and syndicated columnist Michelle Malkin prove especially prescient.
Just last week, Malkin wrote a column focusing on the cult of Larry Davis, a rapper-turned-drug dealer who in 1986 shot six police officers but was acquitted of attempted murder by a minority-dominated jury. Of course, this outcome made Davis into a “street legend” and “hero” to protesters, much as Mumia Abu Jamal and Christopher Dorner have been recently lionized by police haters. Added Malkin:
Few truth-tellers in public office will call out the cop-hating cultists seeking racially driven retribution. Social justice mobsters sucker punch cops in New York while “peaceniks” cheer. Police officers have been attacked with hatchets, knives, and bottles from the Big Apple to Canon City, Colorado. In Oakland, “F–k the pigs” has been a constant refrain. In St. Louis County: “Pigs in a blanket, fry ‘em like bacon.” And in Denver, dedicated police officer John Adsit remains in critical condition after being mowed down by a vehicle while escorting Ferguson protesters last week.
And where was the Obama administration when a group of white policemen were attacked with a hatchet by a militant black nationalist and jihadist vigilante? How many even remember?
As Malkin wrote, President Obama eventually did address the nation on tensions between police and demonstrators in late November, but had little to say in support of police:
Obama’s first priority was to dwell on racial injustice against “communities of color,” and his first instinct was to warn police officers to restrain themselves.
Only after expending 756 words on the need to “understand” the “problem” that “communities of color” have with police did Obama address the thugs of color “throwing bottles” and “smashing car windows” and “using this as an excuse to vandalize property” in the name of social justice.
The Nobel Peace Prize winner had nothing to say about the hate-filled “F**k the police” refrain from rioters of color in Ferguson and anarchists of pallor in Oakland and Occupy Wall Street pot-stirrers of privilege poisoning social media.
The president’s golfing in Hawaii today, but a statement decrying today’s heinous killing wouldn’t be out of order.
