How can you tell Rudy Giuliani is considering another run at the Presidency? When he starts saying really stupid things to appeal to the knuckle-dragging Tea Party base: Obama’s ‘Propaganda’ Pushed People to ‘Hate the Police,’ Giuliani Says.
President Obama has engaged in “propaganda” encouraging people to “hate the police,” former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani (R) charged a day after two city police officers were shot and killed in their patrol car by a man who posted anti-police messages to his social media account.
“We’ve had four months of propaganda starting with the president that everybody should hate the police,” Giuliani said during an appearance on Fox News early Sunday. “The protests are being embraced, the protests are being encouraged. The protests, even the ones that don’t lead to violence, a lot of them lead to violence, all of them lead to a conclusion: The police are bad, the police are racist. That is completely wrong.”
You know, I really don’t remember President Obama ever saying “we should hate the police.” In fact, I don’t remember him saying anything even remotely like that. Maybe this is one of those events that only happened in the bizarre Wingnut Alternate Universe?
In the real world, though, President Obama unconditionally condemned the NYPD killings. Of course.
