Remember how Obama liked to lecture the Tea Party on rhetoric? After the shooting of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-AZ) [note, the seat was just won by a Republican] Obama told us "it's important for us to pause for a moment and make sure that we are talking with each other in a way that heals, not a way that wounds." Of course that call for civility was one sided as Democrats, including Vice President Biden continued to call Tea Partiers "terrorists."
Former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi also used to wag her finger at the Tea Party. She once scolded: "I think we all have to take action and responsibility for our words." Yet when liberal protesters demanded Gov. Scott Walker of Wisconsin (R) be removed from office "dead or alive" we didn't hear a peep about it. On the contrary, she called the Wisconsin protests "an extraordinary show of democracy in action."
In the wake of Grand Jury decision in Missouri Obama gave several speeches in which he had a few throwaway lines about the need to protest peacefully followed by paragraph after paragraph lecturing the police on the treatment of black people. Since then he's said little about the violence and civil unrest which has gripped major cities.
Did we hear Obama condemn the protesters who chanted "what do we want? DEAD COPS?" Not a word. You can imagine his response if the Tea Party did anything similar?
Meanwhile, the violence simmering just below the surface was allowed to fester and finally explode as a man who was directly inspired by the protests and violent rhetoric first shot his girlfriend in the stomach near Baltimore then got in his car and drove to New York City where he gunned down NYPD Officers Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos

Obama and the left let the monster of racist violence loose!
"Fuck the cops." One witness reported “A lot of people were clapping and laughing,” he said. “Some were saying, ‘They deserved it,’ and another was shouting at the cops, ‘Serves them right because you mistreat people!’” he said.On Twitter people only celebrated the killing and cheered for the shooter. That's civility on the left!
Oh, Al Sharpton did make a statement decrying violence. But once again, that message is buried in the hate he spouts every day. No word from the White House. In a statement from Attorney General Holder he couldn't help get in a dig accusing cops of being distant from the communities they serve.
New York Mayor DeBlasio showed up at the hospital where the dead officers were taken and attempted to show he sympathized with the police. He was shunned by officers at the scene who turned their back to him. Along with Obama and the rest DeBlasio has made it clear he sides with protesters and accuses police of being the bigger problem.
After a short break, Obama, DeBlasio, Sharpton and Holder will go right on placing the blame for unrest on the police with only a few words warning against violence by others. But as the New York Patrolman's Benevolent Association President Patrick Lynch said late Saturday DeBlasio has "blood on his hands." So too for Obama and the rest who stood by and watched this happen!
