FLASHBACK: After Black Radical Massacred Dallas Officers, Obama Didn't Condemn Black Racism

In the summer of 2016, at the height of the public outrage over the high-profile police shootings of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile, black nationalist Micah Xavier Johnson took his sniper rifle and shot and killed five Dallas police officers. President Obama's responses to the sequence of events was widely praised by the press.

Responding to the outrage over Sterling and Castile, President Obama said their deaths were "not isolated incidents" but were "symptomatic" of a criminal justice system plagued by "racial disparities." That evening, during a Black Lives Matter rally, Johnson opened fire on Dallas police officers, shooting a dozen officers, five of whom died from their wounds. Before the police were forced to shoot him dead, he told them that he was deliberately targeting "white people, especially white officers" and that the Black Lives Matter movement had inspired his actions.

"The suspect said he was upset about Black Lives Matter; he said he was upset about the recent police shootings. The suspect said he was upset at white people. The suspect stated he wanted to kill white people, especially white officers," Dallas Police Chief David Brown told reporters
.

When Obama was given more time to address the Dallas massacre at the funeral of the five officers, he not only did not condemn black nationalists or radical Black Lives Matter activists, he used the platform as a way to double down on his gun control agenda, reiterate his claim that systemic racism plagues the criminal justice system, and push for more public investment in minority communities and schools. The media largely fawned over the "Lincolnesque" speech. A few excerpts from his highly political remarks:

This has always been the problem in media, when outlets pick and choose their outrage, usually to rile up their viewers. In this case, not only was this a racial attack, but it was a hate crime targeting specifically police officers.

This is why you have to call it as it is. Yesterday was a case of racism and terror, as was the attack on the Dallas police. I think the biggest difference is as you stated, the media will hound Trump tell him to denounce over and over, almost to suggest somehow he has control over these nuts. Yet, noone demanded the same of Obama either in regards to the terror attack against the police, or in referring to radical Islam as it was. Politics, through and through.

None of this violence is excusable. Wrong is wrong, whether it is a cop abusing their power, a politician, a radical terrorist, a protester, whomever. Furthermore, I think Trump is well aware that there are crazies on all sides of the political spectrum, whether this nut who ran over the lady, or the alt-left arming themselves with a rifle and coming a whisker from killing dozens of GOP leaders. Apply the same standards and denounce. Since Trumps victory he has seen left wing protesters out on the streets relentlessly, protesting the most absurd issue: democracy.

If these supremists are going to keep protesting, let them do so without fanfare or media coverage. After awhile they will realize noone cares about their warped hate and they will grow tired of wasting their time. I have no use for any of these protesters, as I see no purpose for their actions other than to stir up trouble.
