New White House Statement Pledges Support For Police
A new statement on the White House website makes it clear that President Donald Trump will support American law enforcement officials after eight long years of disrespect.
“President Trump will honor our men and women in uniform and will support their mission of protecting the public. The dangerous anti-police atmosphere in America is wrong. The Trump Administration will end it,” the statement reads.
Barack Obama wasn’t responsible for generating that anti-police atmosphere, but he certainly didn’t do anything to change it. Thanks to the color of his skin, he had an opportunity to be a unique voice for the African-American community. He had a platform upon which he could have laid out some harsh truths. Instead, he fanned the flames. Trump won’t even have to do anything to improve on Obama’s record in this area. Simply doing nothing would be a tremendous step in the right direction.
The statement goes on to say that the Trump administration will focus on those Americans who want to live in peace.
“Our job is not to make life more comfortable for the rioter, the looter, or the violent disrupter,” the statement says. “Our job is to make life more comfortable for parents who want their kids to be able to walk the streets safely. Or the senior citizen waiting for a bus. Or the young child walking home from school.”
In other words, the days of treating villains as heroes is coming to an end – at least as far as the federal government is concerned. The left will continue to put halos around every Michael Brown that attacks a cop, but at least police officers will know the president has their backs.
The White House also said that keeping American safe meant giving individuals the ability to defend themselves and their families.
“Supporting law enforcement means supporting our citizens’ ability to protect themselves,” the statement concluded. “We will uphold Americans’ Second Amendment rights at every level of our judicial system.”
So this is ultimately the most important part of the statement. Why? Well, it is a complete refutation of all of those idiots who think Trump is a fascist dictator in the making. Here’s a hint: Dictators don’t want their citizens running around with guns. They want to put all the power and control in the hands of the state. Widespread chaos and crime only help them to achieve their goals. And nothing breeds that atmosphere like weakening law enforcement and leaving the people with no legitimate way to defend themselves. That’s when the people come begging the benevolent dictator to save them.
We are embarking on a new era of freedom, and the left is fighting it every step of the way.
