Do you know Sir Isaac Newton’s Third Law of Physics?
For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.
And, proving once again that the Democrat Party is most emphatically NOT the party of science, President Barack Obama clearly does not comprehend Newton’s Third Law.
In politics, I call it the push-back principle and I wrote about it back in 2013 shortly after New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and the imbecilic New York State Legislature imposed on us the NY SAFE (Secure Ammunition and Firearms Enforcement) Law.
In my column “Liberals & Newton’s Third Law,” from February 2013 (a column that is part of my first compilation book RANT: Politics & Snark in the Age of Obama), I wrote the following:
Poor Andrew Cuomo. He really thought that if he enacted an unconstitutional, overreaching, gun grabbing law that we New Yorkers would just hold still and obey.
Clearly one of the biggest failures of the public
indoctrinationeducation system is Liberals know nothing about physics.
If you push us, we push back.
It’s basic physics.
Push: Pass a law requiring businesses of over 50 full time employees to provide health insurance for said employees…
Push-Back: Businesses cut the hours of their employees to get that full time number below 50, thereby avoiding the insurance mandate.
Push: Pass a law banning 100 watt light bulbs.
Push-Back: People rush to stores to buy every 100 watt bulb out there.
Push: Pass a law requiring wealthy residents of a state to pay a higher income tax.
Push-Back: Wealthier residents of the state move to states with lower or no income taxes.
Push: Pass an insanely unconstitutional gun law in New York.
Push-Back: Gun manufacturers band together to refuse to sell to the State of New York.
Push: Start advocating for stricter gun control laws.
Push-Back: Citizens begin to purchase more firearms in anticipation.
Sadly, those that seek to wreak havoc in our nation, destroy the very culture of our society are effected by Newton’s Third Law whether they comprehend it or not.
We had the action: Police Officer shoots and kills a black man or black man dies in police custody
And we have the reaction: Those criminals who have no moral grounding, no sense of right and wrong, will begin executing police officers across the country.
This is something that those of us who comprehend basic physics were warning against ever since the first Molotov Cocktails began to sail through the air in Ferguson back in August 2014.
Anyone who isn’t anti-science, anyone with even half a brain who understands Newton’s Third Law would be able to make the mental leap necessary to know that there will be some push-back against the police.
What am I saying? It isn’t even a mental leap. It’s just a wee little step.
But, Obama is the Anti-Science President. He wouldn’t recognize Newton’s Third Law if it dropped on his head like an apple.
So, rather than step between the police and the people, voice support for the men and women in blue who put their lives on the line every single day in every single city and state of the country, Barack Obama indicted the entire profession.
If you, as President of the United States, vilify the local police departments across the nation, excuse the violent riots that spring up in places like Ferguson or Baltimore, and declare that local police need to do some “soul-searching” as if the entire law enforcement profession is at fault, you are encouraging the violent push-back.
Obama isn’t speaking in a vacuum.
Oh, that he were.
When he makes speech after speech attacking the police, rather than putting a damper on the equal and opposition reaction, he only ensures it happens.
When he signals for all the world that he cares enough to send Administration officials to the funerals of Freddie Gray or Michael Brown, but sends absolutely nobody to the funeral of fallen NYPD officer Brian Moore, rather than putting a damper on the equal and opposition reaction, he is emboldening those who wish to attack police officers.
Make no mistake about it. Obama, every step of the way, has made this situation worse.
Much, much worse.
Last week, it was NYPD officer Brian Moore.
Last night, it was two Mississippi police officers conducting a routine traffic stop.
From the Clarion-Ledger:
Authorities early Sunday morning arrested two brothers in connection with the fatal shootings of two Hattiesburg police officers, who were killed in the line of duty during a routine traffic stop Saturday night.
Forrest County Coroner Butch Benedict confirmed the deaths of officers Benjamin Deen and Liquori Tate.
The officers were taken to Forrest General Hospital, where they died shortly after arriving.
Tate, 25, was a recent graduate from the police academy. He posted on his Facebook page that he graduated June 11.
Tate graduated South Pike High School and attended Southwest Mississippi Community College before joining the Hattiesburg Police Department.
Deen, 34, was a K-9 officer. He was named HPD Officer of the Year in 2012.
When Hattiesburg residents Tamika Mills and Pearnell Roberts found Officers lying shot on the street, one of them asked, “Am I dying? I know I’m dying. Just hand me my walkie-talkie.”
They were his last words.
This is the push-back.
This is a war. A war being waged on those who serve to protect the citizens.
And anyone with any sense saw this coming.
But what has Barack Obama done to ensure the safety of those who protect and serve?
What has he done to prevent this push-back?
Nothing. Worse than nothing.
He has helped to fan the flames. In speech after speech, interview after interview, Barack Obama has excused those who are turning their cities into war zones. He has claimed to “understand” their frustrations.
Again, he doesn’t speak in a vacuum.
Sadly, Barack Obama’s words carry quite a distance.
Again, would that they did not.
It is why our foreign enemies have no fear of committing aggression against our allies and us.
It is why Iran knows they will get everything they could possibly want in this moronic deal — including nuclear weapons.
It is why thugs and criminals believe they have carte blanche to hunt down police officers and shoot them dead in the streets.
They know Obama is an appeaser just as Putin knows, the Mullahs know, Assad knows, China knows.
It is reprehensible.
This man should be driven out of office.
Before more Americans die.
