Thursday night's massacre of white police in Dallas was the deadliest attack on U.S. law enforcement since the 9/11 terrorist attacks. But it's just the latest and most deadly episode of an alarming trend where blacks are specifically targeting police.
The killer in Dallas made it clear that he hated white people and wanted to kill white cops. How did these ideas take hold in his mind?
The hate that drove Micah Xavier Johnson to kill came from the top. Obama has embraced the Black Lives Matter movement and went so far as to invite leaders to the White House in February to praise them. He has consistently criticized police using overt racial language. In various statements regarding the police he might utter a few sentences about non violence towards police but it's always prefaced by paragraphs describing what he says is systemic racism among police. He did it again on Thursday hours before the Dallas massacre:
OBAMA July 7: But regardless of the outcome of such investigations, what's clear is that these fatal shootings are not isolated incidents. They are symptomatic of the broader challenges within our criminal justice system, the racial disparities that appear across the system year after year.After the killings in Dallas, Obama's statement on the matter continued to carry the racial dog whistle by suggesting that "racial disparities in our criminal justice system" are partly to blame.
Throughout his presidency Obama has used racial rhetoric to motivate his political base. The tactic goes back to where he said "Cambridge police acted stupidly" in a local Massachusetts matter where a black friend of his was stopped for suspicious behavior. The stunning statement that Trayvon Martin could have been his son followed after. Then, his Administration whipped up anti-cop fervor in Missouri following the shooting of Mike Brown in Ferguson. The White House sent more official representatives to Brown's funeral than they did to that of former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher (4-0).
It's no coincidence that many Black Lives Matter activists and the racebaiters on the left continue to spew hate towards police and cheer on the shooting. Obama has told them their concerns are justified, even if he's careful not to endorse their language. He doesn't have to endorse their language, he just continues to tell them that systemic racism is real.
|Just a sample of the hate speech that goes unchecked by Obama and the Department of Justice after police shootings!|

Meanwhile, the lie that cops target blacks continues to take hold despite the FACT that according to FBI statistics a police officer is 18.5 times more likely to be killed by a black than a cop killing an unarmed black person.

Do their lives matter? Where are the protests?
When will Obama be held accountable for his anti-cop rhetoric that his followers use to justify killing? When will he declare Blacks Lives Matter a terrorist organization?
UPDATE: Trump and Hillary Response Shows Real Difference
On Facebook, Trump modified his campaign slogan to "MAKE AMERICA SAFE AGAIN" and made the following statement:
Last night’s horrific execution-style shootings of 12 Dallas law enforcement officers – five of whom were killed and seven wounded - is an attack on our country. It is a coordinated, premeditated assault on the men and women who keep us safe.What was Hillary's primary focus? This tweet spells it out:
We must restore law and order. We must restore the confidence of our people to be safe and secure in their homes and on the street.
And what about Attorney General Lynch? She made a point to reach out to Black Lives Matter and urge them not to "be discouraged" by what happened in Dallas. The dead and their families are little more than an afterthought. Racial politics ALWAYS comes first with Democrats!White Americans need to do a better job of listening when African Americans talk about the seen and unseen barriers you face every day.— Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) July 8, 2016
Trump wants to protect ALL Americans. Hillary wants to blame whites! We've already suffered through eight years of that kind of warped attitude. Trump has the right idea!
