Police Association President on Baton Rouge Shooting: Obama ‘Has Blood on His Hands’

In the aftermath of this morning's armed ambush in which three Baton Rouge police officers were murdered and three more critically wounded, Cleveland police officer and Police Patrolmen’s Association President Steve Loomis said President Barack Obama has “blood on his hands.” 

Loomis said,  
“The president of the Untied States validated a false narrative and the nonsense that Black Lives Matter and the media are pressing out there to the public — validated with his very divisive statements.  And now we see an escalation.  This has got to end.  We need some leadership in this country to come forward and put an end to this.  I don’t care if it’s clergy, I don’t care who it is, but somebody has got to step up and put an end to this because it’s the false narrative and very influential people that are politicizing the false narrative.  Absolutely insane that we have a president of the United States and a governor of Minnesota making the statements that they made less than one day after those police involved shootings.  And those police involved shootings, make no mistake, are what absolutely has triggered this rash of senseless murders of law enforcement officers across this country.  It is reprehensible.  And the President of the United States has blood on his hands and it will not be able to come washed off.”
Yes, President Obama has blood on his hands; and even though we are 113 days until the next presidential election and 186 days until the end of Obama's presidency, President Obama needs to resign.  He needs to resign in disgrace for what he has done to this country and to our world.

The reality is that America's experiment with its first black president has been an absolute failure--not because Obama was black.  One could name any number of African American individuals--former Secretaries of State General Colin Powell and Condoleezza Rice, Senator Tim Scott, Dr. Ben Carson, economists Thomas Sowell and Walter Williams, to name just a few, who could have done an extremely competent job as president.

But Barack Obama, who promised to be the great uniter has, in fact, been the great divider.  His radical embrace of race politics and anti-law and order sympathies have given us the current violence against law enforcement officers.  His obvious Muslim sympathies have given the world the Islamic State and the resulting immigrant crisis in Europe, as well as a guarantee that Iran will in the not too distant future have nuclear weapons.  

This is Barack Obama's legacy.  And unless the history books are written by politically correct fools, this is what history will reflect--a weak and internally divided America and a more dangerous world--the legacy of the last seven and a half years.

There is nothing Barack Obama can do in the next 168 days to redeem this legacy.  America needs new leadership--and very different leadership--if it is going to survive.  

May God bring healing to the families of the victims in Baton Rouge--and Dallas and New York before them.  And may God bring healing to the United States of America and our troubled world.
