These are officers Officers Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos:
They were assassinated in cold blood by an anti-cop protester in Bedford-Stuyvesant today.
Earlier in the week, protesters including Eric Linsker, a CUNY poetry professor, attacked police by trying to throw a garbage pail down on them, then kicked and stomped two police officers. Linsker ought to be tried for attempted murder. His poetry sucks too, but you don’t need to be competent to succeed in the academic humanities today: what you need to do is demonstrate the appropriate level of hatred against the appropriate scapegoats. Bad poet Linsker got a job teaching poetry at the taxpayers’ expense because his bad poetry is about killing cops. It takes a village to kill a cop, and academicians like Linsker are the idiot troubadours of that village.
Meanwhile, Barack Obama and Eric Holder, along with professors associated with Harvard School of Law, may be preparing to help pardon another cop-killer, Assata Shakur (JoAnne Chesimard).
Shakur is responsible for the murders of several cops. In 1971, she ordered the murder of a random white cop in Atlanta, and her followers went out and killed the first white cop they found: James Richard Greene. The 26-year old Atlanta cop was gunned down at random for no reason other than being white and a cop. He was eating breakfast at the intersection of Boulevard and Memorial Drive in Atlanta when he was murdered.
I lived within blocks of that intersection for 20 years. The intersection lies in civil rights icon John Lewis’ district. But Lewis is not really a civil rights leader anymore because he does not support civil rights or human rights for everyone. If he did, he would treat the racist political murders of police in New York City — and in his district — as civil rights violations more severe and noteworthy than what happened to him. He was beaten, once, but he survived.
If John Lewis really opposed race murder, he would memorialize the sacrifice of James Richard Greene. He would advocate for the murdered cop to be honored with an historical marker, at least. But instead, Lewis sides with the virulent anti-cop lynch mob. It takes a village to kill a cop, and John Lewis is a politician in that village.
If you went and spoke to the well-off hipsters who live in the area of Greene’s murder today, I believe nine out of ten of them would express solidarity with the cop-killers and at best vague discomfort or (more likely) jubilation at the mention of murdering a cop. The Occupy movement demonstrated their jubilation at killing cops repeatedly. It takes lots of idiots to populate the village of killing cops.
Shakur’s attorney, Soffiyah Elijah, was honored with a high post at Harvard Law — not because she is accomplished in any other way but because she supports the murder of cops. She is even an apologist for Castro’s prisons. This sort of garbage is what passes for legal scholarship at our Ivy League schools — advocating cop killing is a stepping-stone to a successful career at Harvard Law. It takes a village to kill a cop, and Harvard Law is the barrister of that village.
The Obamas are close to another Assata Shakur supporter — the rap artist Common. Common is famous as a “politically relevant” artist because he sings songs celebrating Assata Shakur’s cop-killing, and the Obamas invited him to the White House to celebrate that music — not despite his pro-cop killer stance but because of it. The Obamas are the aristocracy of the village that supports killing cops.
On the week Barack Obama and Eric Holder held the infamous “beer summit” to scapegoat a police officer for being white and doing his job, several cops were murdered. Obama and Holder could have used the “beer summit” to honor or at least mention these murdered police, but they didn’t, of course. Murdered police weren’t important to them on that day: what was important was the opportunity to ritually abuse a cop for the color of his skin. Holder has also, of course, been instrumental in acquiring pardons for other cop-killers and terrorists.
Eric Holder is the law in the village that supports killing cops.
The executive branch of our government is filthy with people who support cop-killing. It is time to call this bunch the name they deserve. They are a lynch mob. They are the first lynch mob to control the White House since Woodrow Wilson approvingly screened Birth of a Nation at the White House in 1915. 100 years later, all that’s changed is the target.
It is time for decent people to come together and hold a march on Washington showing solidarity for the humanity and human rights of cops. We need a pro-cop, anti-lynching-of-cops movement.
Sad that any civilized nation would need such a thing.
