Philadelphia is the “City of Brotherly Love”, but for the men and women in blue, Hillary Clinton is certainly not sympathetic to those officers whose lives have been lost lately. Hillary is inviting the #BlackLivesMatter supporters and “alleged victims” of police brutality, while ignoring and disrespecting those lives lost; the lives of those who were serving and protecting our communities.
At a time when national sympathy for rank-and-file cops is rising after the sniper assassinations of five police officers in Dallas, Texas, and the ambush murders three cops in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Hillary Clinton’s Democrats have chosen to make heroes of the alleged victims of police brutality while ignoring the families of the fallen men in blue.
And even in the City of Brotherly Love, cops are in a rage.
In a scathing statement released Wednesday, the Philadelphia Fraternal Order of Police slammed Clinton and the Democrats for scheduling speaking slots for the mothers of criminals and slighting dead officers’ loved ones.
“The Fraternal Order of Police is insulted and will not soon forget that the Democratic Party and Hillary Clinton are excluding the widows and other family members of the police officers killed in the line of duty who were victims of explicit and not implied racism, and ‘being on duty in blue,’” read the statement, signed by FOP Lodge 5 President John McNesby.
“It is sad that to win an election Mrs. Clinton must pander to the interests of people who do not know all the facts, while the men and women they seek to destroy are outside protecting the political institutions of this country.”
“Mrs. Clinton, you should be ashamed of yourself if that is possible.”
Well, obviously it’s not possible. This is the same Hillary Clinton whose husband, former President Bill Clinton, actually tangled with Black Lives Matter protesters during a visit to Philadelphia in April, only to back down later in the interests of maintaining the Democrat Party’s plantation loyalty from black voters.
But with the party’s selection of speakers for the convention’s opening night on Tuesday, the Democrat sympathies are clearer than ever. According to Philly.com, among the “Mothers of the Movement” scheduled to take the stage are Sybrina Fulton, mother of the 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, and Lezley McSpadden, the mother of 18-year-old Michael Brown.
You’re not REALLY surprised are you? Clinton is all about winning. She desperately needs the black turnout to win the presidency. How do you win the Democratic black vote if you’re Hillary? 1) Come off like you are sympathesizing with #BlackLivesMatter. 2) Support governors that allow felons to vote. 3) Support the states requiring NO ID’s to vote. 4) Take a few pointers from Obama on community organizing, and 5) Support everything that Soros has funded.
Hillary Clinton doesn’t CARE about those that serve and protect our country or our citizens – just ask Ambassador Stevens? Oh, I’m sorry, that’s right he’s dead!
In addition, I’m sure Clinton and the Democrats will be stressing MORE GUN CONTROL – because we all know that’s the REAL solution, right? It can’t be that we have too many people breaking the laws. I mean it’s not like breaking the laws is all that bad, just ask Hillary?
Of course, you didn’t hear Trump talking about gun control at the RNC. In fact, Trump emphasized the importance of the police force, the men and women in blue serving and protecting our citizens, and what a great job they are doing across our nation – especially the job they did in Cleveland. In other words, Trump showed respect for our law enforcement personnel, something you won’t see coming from Hillary or the DNC. Hillary Ashamed? NOT AT ALL!
