President Obama ‘fuelled, aided, and abetted’ anti-cop movement in US: Sky News contributor Cory Bernardi says the legislators around the world have gone missing by not “defending the role of police and the rightful authority they have in maintaining law and order”.
The New York Police Benevolent Association President Mike O’Meara who stood in front of fellow NYPD members his police force “roundly reject what (the Minneapolis police officer) did as disgusting,” but said from the original crime against George Floyd, “our legislators abandoned us, the press is vilifying us”.
Mr Bernardi told Sky News host Peta Credlin the “genesis” of the anti-police movement was “fueled, aided, and abetted by Barack Obama”. He also claimed President Obama “misrepresented a whole range of things” which happened in America to create, within the nation, a “race baiting culture”.
While the media pin the blame on Trump for the race-based protests across the nation, President Obama was in fact “one of the most racially divisive presidents in America," according to Sky News contributor Cory Bernardi.
The protests were initially triggered by the death of African-American George Floyd, aged 46, who died after a police officer was filmed kneeling on his neck for almost nine minutes during his arrest for allegedly using a fake $20 note in a shop.
The incident sparked race-based protests across the nation many of which rapidly degenerated into looting and rioting which has been allegedly spurred on by left wing extremist group Antifa. Mr Bernardi said “Democratic governors are failing to uphold law and order … and New York City is a case in point”.
He said the media have acted as “partisan cheerleaders” who have not presented the real situation which is “that blacks are killing blacks in America and they are attacking police officers who are in the main defending themselves and being criticised for it”.
Anyone? Anyone? In a (sadly) non “Ferris Bueller”-related interview with Fox News, economist and author Ben Stein called President Obama the most racist president ever. “He is purposely trying to use race to divide America,” Stein told Fox news.
Stein was on to discuss the main issue on voters’ minds today: the economy. A Fox News poll revealed that even in the wake of Ebola and immigration, the economy is still voters’ main concerns. Stein disagrees with the network’s official poll.
“I think that’s what people are saying is their most important issue,” he said, “but what I think the White House is doing is trying to racialize all politics and are especially trying to tell the African American voter that the GOP is against letting them have a good chance in this economy.”
“That’s just a complete lie!” he told Fox. “Republicans don’t have policies against the African Americans,” he said. “The idea that the economy is being used as a way to oppress some minorities is just an outrageous lie.” The lie is so great, so grand, Stein says, that detractors “might as well say that the Republicans are coming down from the moon!”
Ben Stein, who gained recognition as a speech-writer for presidents Gerald Ford and Richard Nixon, is the author of the “Yes, You Can Retire Comfortably,” “Can America Survive?,” and “Yes, You Can Time the Market.” He is also, obviously, that guy from “Ferris Bueller.”
