Attorney General William Barr continues to raise the ire of the left.
This time it’s because the Attorney General set his sights on the Democrats’ head honcho.
And William Barr drew one line in the sand that turned the tables on Barack Obama.
Over the last several years in America it’s become fashionable to attack the police and falsely claim the police are racist killers that target young black men for sport.
The police found themselves with very few defenders as the media and Hollywood bent over backwards to pelt the American people with lies fed by anti-police activists.
That all changed when the American people elected Donald Trump.
Trump championed the law enforcement and made sure he appointed top level officials that would have cops’ backs.
Attorney General William Barr made that clear in his remarks before police officers at the Justice Department Ceremony honoring law enforcement.
“Today, the American people have to focus on something else, which is the sacrifice and the service that is given by our law enforcement officers. And they have to start showing, more than they do, the respect and support that law enforcement deserves,” Barr stated.
Barr warned that if anti-police activists continue to demonize law enforcement, police could decide it’s safer not to actively engage rather than turn into the latest object of the fake news media and Black Lives Matter’s most recent two minutes of hate.
“If communities don’t give that support and respect, they might find themselves without the police protection they need,” Barr added.
Barr compared the left’s treatment of police to how liberals spit on soldiers returning from Vietnam.
“In the Vietnam era, our country learned a lesson. I remember that our brave troops who served in that conflict weren’t treated very well in many cases when they came home, and sometimes they bore the brunt of people who were opposed to the war,” he said. “The respect and gratitude owed to them was not given. And it took decades for the American people finally to realize that.”
Barr’s message was aimed squarely at cop-hating liberals like former President Barack Obama.
Obama fanned the flames of police hatred from the White House by embracing the racist and anti-police terror group Black Lives Matter.
In words as well as deeds, Obama egged on anti-police activists to hate and disrespect the police.
When Obama spoke at a 2016 memorial for five Dallas police officers slain by a racist black nationalist, Obama blamed the police officers for the hatred in the heart of the terrorist that killed them.
“We have all seen this bigotry in our lives at some point,” Mr. Obama thundered. “None of us is entirely innocent. No institution is entirely immune. And that includes our police departments. We know this.”
Donald Trump’s support for law enforcement after years of Obama and Black Lives Matter led anti-police hate helped Trump attract swing voters in key battleground states.
Barr’s speech made it clear defending law enforcement will be a priority for the Trump administration.
