Apparently it’s a surprise that law enforcement supports Donald Trump, but I don’t see how it possibly could be. Hillary Clinton has showed nothing but sympathy for movements like Black Lives Matter, going as far as to pander to them in discussing “implicit bias” and “systemic racism” in her acceptance speech at the DNC.
A few days ago, Trump was met in San Antonio by a group of police officers sporting “Make America Great Again” hats. And what was the result? As the Washington Post updated us, “More than a dozen officers from the San Antonio Police Department will face punishment for wearing Donald Trump’s “Make America Great Again” hats in a video tweeted out Tuesday by the Republican nominee, the city’s police chief said.”
The officers’ apparent show of support drew swift criticism from city and police officials, who said it violated department policy. Think they would’ve complained had they wore gear supporting Hillary Clinton if they were greeting her? Yeah – I doubt it.
The city’s police chief posted on Facebook: “I am deeply disappointed by some of our SAPD officers’ lack of judgment. While on duty, police must be above politics with an obligation to serve everyone equally. Everything they do should send that message and today’s actions did not.” Yes – how dare they wear a hat!!!
Now, America’s best sheriff is firing back in their defense.
As the US Herald reported:
Appearing on the Fox Business Network, Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke joined in with his take on the incident saying: “It’s customary after a candidate leaves or the President visits that the candidate or the president shakes hands with the officers; that’s a high risk job those motorcades,” he said. “It’s something that’s just symbolic; it’s not that big a deal. I think it’s nitpicking. But I’ll tell you this as well… if those cops would’ve been wearing Black Lives Matter baseball caps or tee-shirts, these same people complaining or this whole outrage, wouldn’t have had a problem with it.”
And perhaps there in a nutshell lies the issue, in that all across the country critical thinking Americans are witnessing our schools, and our institutions becoming feeding grounds of misinformation where “so called educators” don tee-shirts emblazoned with “Black Lives Matter” insignia and where propaganda is more valued than simple historical facts.
Moreover that didn’t stop Mayor Ivy Taylor from adding her two cents of political correct dribble stating: “I am deeply disappointed by some of our SAPD officers’ lack of judgment, while on duty, police must be above politics with an obligation to serve everyone equally. Everything they do should send that message and today’s actions did not.”
What do you all think? Is it really the worst thing in the world that these police who greeted Trump supported him? If police who supported Hillary greeted her wearing pro-Hillary gear, would it have been that much of a shock or subject of controversy?
Of course not. With the Left, it’s another day, another manufactured outrage.
