Barack Obama spoke to the Congressional Black Caucus Saturday night and brought up law enforcement who they love but who are also unfair as he continues his mission to nationalize local police and turn them into a social work agency of sorts.
He wants young black women treated with “love and care, not skepticism”, by police, he said.
The police exhibit “uncommon bravery” and the “vast majority do the right thing,” he emphasized, but with him, there is always a “but”.
I want to repeat, he said, because this doesn’t show up on the news. Somehow…this never shows up on Fox News, “Our law enforcement officers do outstanding work in an incredibly difficult job. They put their lives on the line…we appreciate them and love them,” he said of the police. The recommendations (that are being used to nationalize the police) are for their safety too he said.
It’s about love, but, and there is always a “but”, there has to be understanding and police have to be fairer.
He believes the excessive discipline in school and unfair treatment by police is why black women are getting in trouble in school and with police.
“This is not a new problem,” he said. “It’s just that in recent months, in recent years, suddenly folks have videos and body cameras and social media. And so it’s opened our eyes to these incidents.”
What he didn’t say is the incidents are few and were picked out from around the nation. About 92 percent of blacks who were murdered were killed by other blacks, not police – that statistic is under 1%. He has an agenda so he created a crisis to make it come about.
“There is no contradiction between us caring about our law enforcement officers and also making sure that our laws are applied fairly,” he yelled. “It’s not an either-or it’s a both-and proposition,” he yelled some more.
“Do not make this as an either-or proposition,” he continued firmly. “This is a both-and proposition. We want to protect our police officers — we’ll do a better job doing of it if our communities can feel confident that they are being treated fairly. Hope I’m making that clear. Hope I’m making that clear.”
He’s clear alright.
