BREAKING: Obama HIJACKS Dallas memorial with sick message…

After former President George W. Bush delivered elegant, heartfelt commentary and words of sympathy for the five Dallas police officers brutally assassinated last week at a memorial in Dallas today, it was our current Dear Leader’s turn.

He spent the first few moments describing each of the victims, providing details about their lives and their families.

And then he pivoted.

Not surprisingly, President Obama used this “bully pulpit” to return to his favorite themes of racism, discrimination and police brutality.

At one point, it really felt as though he was justifying the Dallas attack.

“If we are to honor these five outstanding officers, then we will have to act on the truths that we know… we’re going to have to be honest with each other and ourselves…

We…know that centuries of racial discrimination and slavery and subjugation and Jim Crow, they didn’t simply vanish at the end of lawful segregation. They didn’t just stop when Dr. King made a speech…

“But America, we know that bias remains. WE know it. Whether you are black or white or… we have all seen this bigotry in our own lives at some point… if we’re honest, perhaps we’ve heard prejudice in our own heads… we know that. And while some suffer far more under racism’s burden, some feel to a far greater extent discrimination…none of us is entirely innocent. No institution is entirely immune. And that includes our police departments. We know this.

“Study after study shows that whites and people of color experience the criminal justice system differently… when moms and dads… still fear that something terrible may happen when their child walks out the door… kids being stupid.. .might end in tragedy… more than 50 years after the passage of the civil rights act, we cannot simply dismiss those engaged in peaceful protests as troublemakers, or paranoid. As a symptom of political correctness, or reverse racism.

“To have your experience denied like that… again and again and again, it hurts. Surely we can see that. All of us.

So we’re ALL guilty for the deaths of those policemen in Texas. All of us. We might as well have pulled the trigger. Because we’re all racists.

And then – remember he was speaking in Dallas, at a memorial for five slain officers in Dallas — Obama actually eulogized the two men shot last week in Minnesota and Louisiana, Philando Castile and Alton Sterling, saying , “Even those who dislike the phrase Black Lives Matter should be able to relate to stories about Alton Sterling, who always cooked enough for everyone, or Philando Castile, a gentle soul, “Mr. Rogers with dreadlocks.”

Never mind the fact that Sterling was also a registered sex offender with a 20-year rap sheet and Castile may have been a suspect in an armed robbery.

Many folks seem to feel this was just the finest speech President Obama has ever given. But we’ll just leave you with this commentary from our side of the aisle.
