Barack Obama is like the fireman who commits arson so that he can ride to the scene and save the day. And tomorrow, the arsonist fireman will be riding to Dallas ostensibly to put out the fire he had a hand in igniting.
It’s called Hero Homicide Complex.
The arsonist fireman. The nurse who injects a patient with a drug that gives him a heart attack so that she can save his life. The president who fans the flames of racial division that erupts into violence so that he can fly to the scene and call for unity and calm.
I used to think Obama was just so deeply incompetent that he had no idea that his own actions and words were the equivalent of striking a match over gasoline-soaked rags.
But after the last few years too many events have occurred for me to think this is just incompetence.
Why would Obama be invited to speak at the memorial for the five police officers murdered during a Black Lives Matter rally?
Aside from the fact that the mayor of Dallas is a Democrat, I have no idea.
To me, it’s like asking the guy who burnt your house down to house-sit your new home while you go on vacation.
It’s sickening enough to listen to this self-righteous fomenter of anarchy lecture us about unity while he is overseas in Poland. It’s quite another to invite him to give a eulogy for those victims of the division he has wrought.
In Season 5 of the TV show “24,” President Charles Logan is involved in a conspiracy that results in the assassination of former President David Palmer. In the final episode of the season, Logan has the temerity to stand over Palmer’s flag-draped casket and eulogize him. Logan’s wife — aware of her husband’s involvement in Palmer’s murder — is horrified that he would brazenly do such a thing.
I feel the exact same way about Obama’s going to Dallas to speak at this memorial.
I’m sure his speech writers are busily concocting some self-righteous, morally-superior, faux moving pile of crap that will give Barack ample opportunity to portray himself as the great Unifier and Moral Compass for the Nation.
It’s just sickening.
But this won’t be the first time Barack Obama felt compelled to give a speech about fallen law enforcement officers.
Last year, Obama appeared at the National Peace Officers’ memorial in Washington and said this:
We hold them up as heroes because that’s what they are. It takes a special kind of courage to be a peace officer. To be the one people turn to in their most desperate moments. To be willing to run into a dangerous situation, when everyone else is running the other way. Scripture tells us to love our neighbors as we love ourselves — but only a special few take that commandment so deeply to heart that they are willing to risk their lives so that others — often total strangers — can know peace and security. And that’s what peace officers do. And today, we honor 131 who made that ultimate sacrifice.
We can work harder, as a nation, to heal the rifts that still exist in some places between law enforcement and the people you risk your lives to protect. We owe it to all of you who wear the badge with honor. And we owe it to your fellow officers who gave their last full measure of devotion.
Spoken by a President who hasn’t spent his time in office driving a wedge between local police and the communities they serve, these words may have been meaningful. But spoken by the man who worked tirelessly to create these rifts, these words are disingenuous and galling.
The man who has made the job of police officers even more dangerous thinks nothing of waxing hypocritical of those whose lives are now lost because of it.
You cannot spend over seven years driving a wedge of racial division between Americans and then claim to be our moral better. Nobody with an ounce of humanity would behave this way.
If Barack Obama were made of human parts, he would not speak at this memorial. If he were made of human parts, he would go to Dallas and humbly keep his pompous mouth shut.
