This horrific act was made possible by the actions of President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder, who have repeatedly used their power and authority to stoke anti-police outrage and score petty political points. Derek Hunter at Town Hall put it plainly: the “blood is on their hands.”
There is only one reason that protesters were on the streets last week: because the Justice Department report released a politically motivated report specifically designed to stoke outrage against the Ferguson police department.
Following the shooting of Michael Brown and the exoneration of Officer Darren Wilson, the President directed Attorney General Eric Holder to conduct a federal investigation of the incident. Despite deploying fifty agents to investigate the shooting, Holder could not find any reason to hold Wilson accountable.
But Holder and Obama didn’t want the opportunity to go to waste. So, Holder wrote an inflammatory report stuffed with allegations of institutional racism and discrimination in the Ferguson government. As soon as the report was published, the protesters were back on the street.
And now two police officers are in the hospital fighting for their lives.
Is it really any surprise that something like this happened – again?
Under Obama’s leadership, the entire Justice Department has become more interested in politics than public safety.
Instead of stopping murderers and gang members, they spy on reporters. Instead of cracking down on drug traffickers, they force financial institutions to donate to left-wing activist groups.
Instead of taking guns away from violent thugs, they harass law-abiding gun owners.
It’s beyond comprehension that these kind of reprehensible individuals can continue putting innocent lives at risk. But such is the state of affairs in America today.
