Giuliani Criticizes Obama’s and De Blasio’s Relationships with Police
Posted by Steve Markowitz on January 1, 2015
Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani was on CBS’s Face the Nation last weekend hosted by Major Garrett who attempted to trap Giuliani with a difficult question. Garrett asked if Giuliani wanted to take back his comments that President Obama fostered an atmosphere of “hating American police”? Giuliani responded “not at all” and further stated: “If you would like to have a poster boy for hating the police, It’s Al Sharpton. You make Al Sharpton a close adviser, you are going to turn the police in America against you.”
Giuliani correctly concluded “actions speak louder than words“. The President, the current mayor of New York, and others on the Left have used the unfortunate incidents that led to the deaths of individuals in Ferguson Missouri and New York City to gin up their political base and radical elements within it. While they may have obtained short-term political gain as a result, the damage to the Country is significant and long-term.
There are those on the Left who would vehemently argue that the anti-police rhetoric espoused by some of their politicians has not been responsible in any way for the sad state current relations race in the United States. To that, this Blog asks a rhetorical question: Six years ago this Country took historic step of electing its first African-American president. What responsibility does this President have in the deteriorated race relations since? As Obama said some six years ago, words have meaning.
