By now you’ve heard about Harris County, TX. Deputy Sheriff, Darren Goforth, and how he was brutally shot execution-style while gassing up his patrol car; and then shot an additional 14 rounds by Shannon Miles.
Goforth is white. Miles is black. And it turns out that this horrific crime, and others like it around the nation, is most likely the result of a call to kill cops by the New Black Panthers.
Just two weeks before that brutal assassination in Houston of Goforth, armed New Black Panthers shouted threats as they marched around the Waller County jail in the Houston metropolitan area:
“You’re gonna stop doing what you’re doing, or we will start creeping up on you in the darkness.”
While the details of their threats were intentionally vague, the assassination of Deputy Goforth happened exactly that way.
Do you remember the 2008 election when armed members of the New Black Panthers stood outside a Philadelphia polling station, intimidating voters into not voting? Eric “Nation of Cowards” Holder was the attorney general at the time, and he refused to press charges against the hate group.
In case you were wondering, here’s why I bring up that little bit of historical trivia. There are those involved in law enforcement who put the blame for the rash of cop killings squarely on Obama’s and Holder’s shoulders. According to a report by The New American:
Milwaukee County, Milwaukee Sheriff David Clarke cast blame for the epidemic of police killings directly on President Obama and former Attorney General Eric Holder, even calling them high-profile accessories to the crimes. Clarke contended that the racially tinged rhetoric against law enforcement officers by the Obama administration has been a direct cause of the recent increase in attacks upon the police.
Just hours after the execution of Sheriff Goforth, a #BlackLivesMatter protest took place at the Minnesota State Fair, where crowds could be heard chanting in unison, “Pigs in a blanket—fry ’em like bacon.” #BlackLivesMatter organizer Rashad Turner defended the rhetoric of the protest:
“It definitely wasn’t a threat. I don’t know if they would have received it differently if we would have said ‘on a stick.’ We’re there chanting, using our voices.”
Twenty-four law-enforcement officers have been killed this year in non-accidental gun deaths in the line of duty. And while police officers and deputy sheriffs must always be alert to possible violence in the line of duty, there has been a rapid escalation of attacks since the riots in Ferguson, MO. following the death of Michael Brown.
We shouldn’t be surprised when race-baiting frauds like Al Sharpton and Louis Farrakhan use events like Ferguson and Baltimore to stir up the masses—not to mention raising lots of money for themselves—nor that openly racist hate groups like the New Black Panthers call for killing the police.
What is particularly reprehensible is that much of the racist anti-police rhetoric spewed these days is coming from our politicians, including the current resident of the White House and his former attorney general.
