From 7-8-16 episode of The Rob Zicari Show LIVE 10-1pm M-F
Where do we begin? How about at the top?
We made fun of Marco Rubio when he repeated the same line about Obama over and over at the New Hampshire debate. Chris Christie annihilated Rubio for repeating: “Let’s dispel once and for all with this fiction that Barack Obama doesn’t know what he’s doing. He knows exactly what he’s doing. Barack Obama is undertaking an effort to change this country, to make America more like the rest of the world.” We made fun of Marco not for what he said, but because he kept saying it over and over, like a short-circuited robot.
What Marco Rubio said has never been as true as it is today. Barack Obama is not dumb. He knows exactly what he’s doing. He is fundamentally changing this country, and not for the better.
When Kate Steinle was murdered in San Francisco by an illegal immigrant who had been deported five times, the president did not deliver a speech where he cited statistics of crimes committed by illegal aliens being harbored in sanctuary cities. There were no vigils mourning the victims of these criminals. There were no protests. A bill to compel sanctuary cities to enforce federal immigration detainer requests to prevent people like Kate Steinle from being victimized was blocked by Democrats in Congress. Had it passed, Obama said he would veto it.
Innocent Americans are being killed everyday by people who should not be in this country, yet when a child-molesting career criminal carrying an illegal firearm that he had threatened a homeless man with is shot while resisting arrest, there is national outrage. Celebrities, activists and politicians call for immediate action and demonize every police officer. Liberal blogs like Huffington Post say Alton Sterling’s extensive criminal history shouldn’t matter, what matters is the way the police treat black people in this country. The police. Not some police. All the police.
When Obama delivered a speech in Poland where he cited statistics of blacks killed by cops and talked about the problem of racism in the police, it was a dog-whistle to black people. Dog-whistling is a criticism that has often been directed toward Donald Trump. Liberals say Trump says things that incite people to violence. Dog-whistling politics is defined as political messaging employing coded language that appears to mean one thing to the general population but has an additional, different or more specific resonance for a targeted subgroup.
Obama targeted a specific group – angry, disaffected, frustrated black people. People like Dallas police sniper Micah Johnson. He tells them that their problems are the white man’s fault. The white police officer’s fault. Police are racist, so we must take action to address it. Eight hours later, at a Black Lives Matter protest in Dallas, Micah Johnson slaughters five cops.
Black Lives Matter issued a statement after the shooting:
Black activists have raised the call for an end to violence, not an escalation of it. Yesterday’s attack was the result of the actions of a lone gunman. To assign the actions of one person to an entire movement is dangerous and irresponsible. We continue our efforts to bring about a better world for all of us.
Hmm… so Black Lives Matter doesn’t want their movement to be blamed because of the actions of one lone gunman, yet they are perfectly willing to blame every police officer in the country for the actions of a few bad cops.
Obama’s dog-whistling and Black Lives Matter anti-police rhetoric are responsible for what happened in Dallas. The all-cops-are-racist-killers narrative is also to blame for recent police ambush shootings in Georgia, Missouri and Tennessee.
The liberal media keeps saying that the Dallas march was peaceful, but protesters in Oakland Friday night broke windows and threw red paint at the front entrance of the police station and scrawled “murderers” on the door. What did the Oakland police or the Dallas police have to do with the shootings in Louisiana or Minnesota? It’s another instance of painting all cops with a broad brush.
Black Lives Matter say they are calling for the end of violence. The end of violence? I guess they’re forgetting about the march where Black Lives Matter protesters chanted, “Pigs in a blanket, fry ‘em like bacon!” or the other march in New York City where demonstrators shouted, “What do we want? Dead cops. When do we want it? Now!”
Black Lives Matter is a terrorist group. Plain and simple. Many BLM radicals took to Twitter and said some pretty vile things about police and celebrated the deaths in Dallas. One of the most graphic pictures posted was of a police officer getting his throat cut by a masked man. The caption above the image read “Soon The Tables Will Turn.”
Other tweets read:
“Shout out to them Dallas shooters! Rapping pigs in blankets.”
“Next time a group wants to organize a police shoot, do like Dallas tonight, but have extra men/women to flank the Pigs.”
“Our brothers in Dallas sniping pigs, salute them.”
“Cops in U.S. Especially in Texas are savage animals that will shoot you whenever they please. Now in Dallas is payback time, pigs.”
Yeah. I would say Barack Hussein Obama has changed this country. Marco Rubio was correct.
The Dallas Police Department were protecting the protesters. They had absolutely nothing to do with Alton Sterling or Philando Castile’s deaths, yet five of them were killed because they wore a police uniform. To celebrate their deaths is beyond despicable. This is the culture that Obama has created.
Obama has created a culture where if a police officer has an encounter with a black person, it is automatically assumed racism is involved. Obama has created a dog-whistle of epic proportions and the media plays right along. It wasn’t like this eight years ago. Obama has transformed this country through seven-and-a-half years of dog-whistling, and the liberal media perpetuates it. CNN’s Van Jones and Don Lemon, MSNBC’s Al Sharpton and Joy Reid. It’s all a perpetual dog-whistle that the media uses to stir up anger at police and enables murderers like Micah Johnson to feel their actions are justified.
Now whenever a black person is pulled over or has a confrontation with cops, it’s not because of something they did, it’s because of racism. You never hear about a white person having a deadly encounter with police, because the media doesn’t report it. About eight months ago, an unarmed 19-year-old white kid named Zachary Hammond was shot dead in his car as he attempted to drive away from a drug sting. His family recent settled with the city of Seneca, South Carolina and its police department for $2.15 million dollars. This got no play on network television and there were no protests in Seneca.
There used to be a time when a person was held accountable for their actions that led to a police encounter. The notion that a person is pulled over only because they’re black and an incident happens only because they are black is incredibly deceiving. But when you have the media constantly saying that black people are arrested or killed by cops only because of racism and you have the President of the United States saying the same thing, what happened Thursday night in Dallas is going to continue to happen.
The shooting of Tamir Rice didn’t occur because he was black. It happened because of an incompetent cop. For Obama and Black Lives Matter to classify it as racism is flat out wrong. Philando Castile was pulled over for a broken tail light, not because he was black. He was killed by a crappy Latino cop who overreacted, not because of racism. Eric Garner wasn’t just walking down the street and a police officer jumped on his back and choked him to death, he was doing something wrong and was being arrested for it. He resisted arrest and a crappy cop used an illegal maneuver to subdue him and he died. Garner didn’t die because he was black, he died because he was overweight and unhealthy and a crappy cop used a chokehold on him. When someone does a bad job, it doesn’t mean they’re racist. They’re just crappy at their job.
It’s not racism. It’s dog-whistling, and it all starts with Obama. Dog-whistling got five police officers killed and eleven wounded.
When 50 people are gunned down at a nightclub in Orlando, when 14 people are killed at a Christmas party in San Bernardino, when over 3000 die on 9/11, we’re told not to blame all Muslims. It’s just a few bad apples. What Obama and the media do to police officers is what they condemn Donald Trump and other people for saying about Muslims and illegals.
Huffington Post writer Juliet Spies-Gans criticized Troy Aikman for replying to a police officer’s tweet about people not supporting cops. Aikman wrote: “Sadly Most Police departments around the country don’t feel much support these days.” To which Juliet Spies-Gans responded: “It’s possible to support the officers doing good work and demand a change in the way the police force as a whole approaches and responds to on-duty discrimination.”
As you can see, Spies-Gans is making a broad generalization. Substitute the words ‘Muslims’ or ‘illegals’ in place of the word police. The left does what they condemn the right for when they talk about Islamic terrorists and illegal aliens who rape and murder. If there was a protest at a mosque after a Muslim terrorist killed a bunch of Americans, can you imagine the uproar? Especially if that mosque had nothing to do with the terrorist doing what he did. That’s what’s going on with Black Lives Matter. That’s what goes on with Obama and the media.
Demonizing all police officers for the actions of a few is no different than blaming all Muslims for terrorism and all illegal immigrants for crime in the U.S. The left will say you can’t label every Muslim a terrorist or every illegal a criminal because of a few bad apples, but you have 1.2 million police officers and when one of the crappy ones in Cleveland or Minnesota pulls a gun and shoots someone, that means all police are racist killers.
Protesting cops who had nothing to do with an incident is no different than going up to a random Muslim on the street and saying he is responsible for 9/11. If I did that, I would probably be arrested for a hate crime. I can’t go up to the Mexican janitor at my apartment building and say he is to blame for Kate Steinle being killed. Hell, you had Black Lives Matter protesters screaming at cops in Dallas while their fellow officers were dying in the street.
How many times has the left trolled Donald Trump’s Twitter feed and found racist tweets from supporters and said “This is who supports Donald Trump.” Trump uses an image from an anti-Jewish site and is immediately labeled an anti-Semite, as are his supporters. Yet it’s perfectly fine for Black Lives Matter supporters to tweet messages that celebrate cops being killed. If it were Trump supporters tweeting the same thing about Muslims and illegals, we would be having a whole different conversation right now.
This is why the right needs to invest in the media. Combating liberal propaganda is the only way we are ever going to win. Nothing is ever going to change until the power brokers in the GOP control more news outlets, websites and social media. Liberals are constantly moving the goal post. Changing the rules in the middle of the game. You can’t win if the game is rigged.
You know what I would love to do? I would love to create an organization that goes after mosques. We could call it American Lives Matter. When someone says you can’t condemn an entire religion based on the actions of a few, I’d say, “Why not? Black Lives Matter does. Why can’t we do it?” Since they are allowed to protest what they feel is an unjustified shooting in Baton Rouge with a demonstration against police in Rochester, I should be able to organize a protest in California against Muslims for what one of them did in Orlando.
American Lives Matter could also go to sanctuary cities and protest against illegal aliens that have committed crimes all across the country. When someone say we can’t condemn all immigrants based on what the drug dealers and pedophiles and rapists do, I’d say, “Why not? Black Lives Matter does. Democrats do. President Obama does. Why can’t American Lives Matter?”
We can’t allow Democrats and liberals to get away with their double standard BS anymore. Enough is enough.
