While the Republican Convention honored police – serving and fallen – the Democratic National Convention and Hillary Clinton were planning their roster of speakers and it’s a doozy. On it are the families of black criminals shot by police officers. Not the families of fallen officers, mind you… no… those of black men who attacked and tried to kill officers and/or committed crimes that cost them their lives. The Police Union is furious and they should be. They told Hillary Clinton they would not forget what she is doing here and I don’t blame them one little bit.
From Conservative Post:
According to Right Wing News, Philadelphia’s police union spoke out this week to blast Clinton and the DNC for this decision. John McNesby, president of the Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 5, said the union was “shocked and saddened” by the list of speakers.
“The Fraternal Order of Police is insulted and will not soon forget that the Democratic Party and Hillary Clinton are excluding the widows and other family members of police officers killed in the line of duty who were victims of explicit and not implied racism,” McNesby said, according to The Washington Times.
It’s sickening that Clinton is putting her race-baiting agenda ahead of honoring the police officers who gave their lives for their country.
We have seen five officers murdered in Dallas this month and three more in Baton Rouge. We also saw a police captain taken down in Kansas. These are assassinations and our police officers are being hunted and murdered on the streets of America. Does Hillary give a damn about the Thin Blue Line? Hell no. She’s too busy pandering to the black community and militant, racist, cop-hating groups such as Black Lives Matter, the New Black Panthers and the Nation of Islam.
Police across the nation were ‘shocked and saddened’ when Clinton and the DNC announced who would speak at their convention. I personally find it horrific and reprehensible.
McNesby went on to say it’s “sad that to win an election Mrs. Clinton must pander to the interests of people who do not know all the facts, while the men and women they seek to destroy are outside protecting the political institutions of this country. “Mrs. Clinton, you should be ashamed of yourself, if that is possible.” And not to be left out in the shame, Bill Clinton will speak the same night as these racist radicals will. The Clinton campaign has scheduled former President Bill Clinton to speak Tuesday night with members of Mothers of the Movement, a group that includes relatives of black men killed by police such as Eric Garner of New York and Michael Brown of Ferguson, Missouri. Honestly, I can’t think of a more shameful thing to do at this point in time. #BlueLivesMatter
