Cleveland Police Union President: Obama Has "Blood on His Hands" After Baton Rouge Shooting

The syllogism the left deploys runs like this:

The rightwing deploys excessively emotional anti-government rhetoric. This heated rhetoric creates a "climate of hate" which inspires some members of the public to commit violent actions.

Thus, Sarah Palin's standard, vanilla use of a target symbol to indicate races she was targeting caused, somehow, Jared Loughner to shoot Gabby Giffords, even though Loughner barely knew who Palin was and certainly wasn't interested in winning Giffords' House seat for the GOP. (In fact, he was a lunatic upset that she would not take seriously his belief that human thought was being controlled by the imposition of an alien form of grammar.)

Now, since then, Obama, Holder, and #BlackLivesMatter have fulminated violently against one sector of the government -- the police. You know, the Government's Enforcers.

And lo and behold, some members of the public have heard in this heated rhetoric a call to violence. And then they've acted according to that call to violence, murdering at least ten cops over the past year.

Why isn't Obama responsible for this bloodshed, just as he claimed that Republican racial symbology like the Confederate Battle Flag was responsible for Dylan Roof's murders?

An incensed Officer Steve Loomis said on Fox News that the ambushes on police officers in Dallas and now Baton Rouge "all began with a 9-1-1 call from an African American male saying that another African American male was pointing a gun at him." He continued: "Those officers responded, that male didn't comply, and tragically he ended up losing his life over that with a gun in his pocket. This is how this began." Loomis added:

The president of the United States validated a false narrative and the nonsense that Black Lives Matter and the media are pressing out there to the public ó 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 donít care if itís clergy, I donít care who it is, but somebody has got to step up and put an end to this because itís 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.

Words matter, Obama is fond of lecturing us. Until his words start getting people killed, and then words don't matter all that much.
