Stirred up by anti-police and (often) anti-white rhetoric, lies, misinformation, false victimization, and pure hatred, yet another crazed BLM supporter guns down still more police officers in cold blood.

President Obama proceeds to spout platitudes and blame guns.

Rinse and repeat.

Well, he hasn’t blamed guns this time … yet (don’t worry, that’s coming in 3 … 2 … 1 …), but in responding to the tragic killings of three police officers in Baton Rouge, the President did call for an end to “inflammatory rhetoric” from both sides.

Instead of just speaking the obvious truth, Obama thinks the motives behind Sunday’s killing is “still unknown.”

“We as a nation have to be loud and clear that nothing justifies attacks on law enforcement,” Obama said from the White House briefing room.

Calling for unity instead of division, the President said, “We don’t need inflammatory rhetoric. We don’t need careless accusations thrown around to score political points or to advance an agenda. We need to temper our words and open our hearts … all of us … Attacks on police are an attack on all of us and the rule of law that makes society possible.”

After the Dallas shootings, the National Association of Police Organizations said our nation was in the middle of a war on law enforcement and called on the administration to show leadership by “supporting them and giving them the resources they need to protect themselves and their communities.”

For his part, presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump blasted the President for his “lack of leadership,” saying “We grieve for the officers killed in Baton Rouge today. How many law enforcement and people have to die because of a lack of leadership in our country? We demand law and order.”
