If you needed any more proof that Obama is no friend of the police, here it is.
The Supreme Court legalizes gay marriage – and the White House is illuminated in rainbow colors. When it was Breast Cancer Awareness month, the White House was illuminated pink. But when eight police officers are gunned down in targeted attacks within the course of two weeks? Illuminating the White House blue is apparently too much to ask for.
The Gateway Pundit has the scoop:
… Today, Obama spokesman Josh Earnest said the White House would not light up the facade in blue to celebrate the lives of the five fallen police officers in Dallas:
“I can tell you that’s not something we plan to do at this point.”
On Friday, Jon Adler, president of the Federal Law Enforcement Officers Association, in a statement formally asked the White House to consider this public show of support for the fallen officers, and for law enforcement in general, following the ambush shooting deaths of five officers in Dallas:
“While we appreciate the President’s proclamation to have our flag flown at half-mast in honor of our fallen Dallas police heroes, I respectfully request that he demonstrate his full respect for their ultimate sacrifice by illuminating the White House in blue.
Actions speak louder than scripted words, and the honorable act of displaying law enforcement’s ‘Thin Blue Line’ at the White House would demonstrate the President’s sincere commitment to our fallen heroes and their families.”
Today, the White House said the action wasn’t necessary, and that the president had already adequately displayed his support.
These tragedies still haven’t gone without politicization from Obama, of course. When Obama spoke at the memorial for the fallen officers in Dallas, I couldn’t help but feel like I was at a Black Lives Matter recruiting seminar. More time was spoken about the relationship between minorities and the police than honoring the fallen.
It’s Obama’s last year in office, and 60% of Americans say race relations have gotten worse under his administration. It’s no wonder why. He’s no commander in chief, he’s a divider in chief.
