Trump is blaming Obama for police shootings. But seven years ago Republicans halted a federal study that sought to detect potential radicalization by veterans.
Classy (NOT) piece by uber-left online trash mag politico blaming the shootings in LA and TX on “returning veterans” and the GOP.
As the right-wing outrage machine would have it, the shootings of police in Dallas and Baton Rouge by U.S. military veterans were the fault of President Obama. “How many law enforcement and people have to die because of a lack of leadership in our country?” Trump recently wrote in a Tweet.
But seven years ago, when a little-known division in the new president’s Department of Homeland Security sought to explore the potential violence of returning veterans—one that might have aided local law enforcement with intelligence in Dallas and Baton Rouge—it was Congressional Republicans who succeeded in pushing to shut the program down.
Lets see… one guy was a Marine SGT that had some tours under his belt, while the other was a disgraced Army reservist carpenter who didn’t even conduct a whole tour due to him performing unethically and being charged with sexual assault. So both guys may have been veterans who had deployed to a combat zone, but as far as military service impact that was it.
However do you know what was similar between them? They were both racists, evil pieces of shit who were being enraged by the race-baiters of BLM, Sharpton, Jackson, The New Black Panther Party and Nation of Islam among others I am sure. Their actions had nothing to do with them being veterans so this report…
But a prediction found in a 2009 report, titled “Right-wing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment,”
…would have nothing to do with these two because they were not “Right-wing extremists”. In fact they were as far from that as they could be. They were “LEFT-wing extremists” if anything. The reason the GOP shut down that group in DHS was because it only looked at what it considered “extremists” groups associated with the conservative values and the constitution.
So this piece of shit written by Ben Wofford is exactly that. Sometimes is amazes me how people this dumb can put one foot in front of the other and walk down the street, much less hold a job. I mean don’t they or their editors read what is written? I am not the smartest guy but even Helen Keller could see this piece is as wrong as they come.
