The DNC actually tried to do something good for once.
The convention has been a bit of a shit show, to put it mildly. On day one, ISIS wasn’t mentioned once, while there wasn’t an American flag to be seen in sight. Day two embraced criminality, as the mothers of Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown, and other criminals were given the podium. That night was appropriately closed out by a speech from Joe Biden.
As Barack Obama gave his speech on day three, American and Israeli flags were burned outside. While America and Israel burning is the perfect metaphor for the Obama Presidency, I don’t think that’s what those burning their flags had in mind.
On the last day, a miracle happened: a law enforcement officer requested a moment of silence for the fallen officers in Dallas. The woman speaking was a Dallas County Sheriff named Lupe Valdez.
So how was she received? The crowd was respectful – for the most part. Want to take a guess at what faction of liberal insanity decided to inturrupt? You guessed it: Black Lives Matter.

Valdez was speaking to the DNC crowd about the resilience of police in the face of adversity, and how she’s been trying to make sense of it, before offering a solution:
“Violence is not the answer. Yelling and calling each other names is not going to do it. Talking within our own group in a language only our group understands leads nowhere. We have to start listening to each other.”
Then, she asked the crowd to help her honor “all of America’s fallen officers with a moment of silence.” Listen to what happened:

What a sick way to disrespect the fallen. The officers killed did nothing wrong. We all acknowledge that racism is bad because it views people as groups rather than individuals, but these people have no problem seeing all cops as racists, not as individuals.
The thugs that BLM holds as martyrs weren’t killed by the color of their skin, but the officers slain in Dallas and Baton Rouge were killed for the color of their uniform.
