CLEVELAND -- In what is becoming a depressingly regular occurrence in the Obama era, police officers were murdered by a black militant in a shootout in Baton Rouge on Sunday, apparently in revenge for the recent police-involved death of black career criminal Alton Sterling outside a Baton Rouge food store.That's a great piece.
At time of writing, three police officers had succumbed to the injuries they suffered in Louisiana's capital city. Another three were wounded.
Of course, murdering police officers has long been encouraged by activists with the Marxist, anti-American, revolutionary Black Lives Matter cult, with the support of the activist Left and financing from speculator George Soros. A year ago Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, who openly advocates the mass murder of whites, called for “10,000 fearless men” to “rise up and kill those who kill us.” Like many radicals, Farrakhan mischaracterizes Black Lives Matter as a rising civil rights movement.
President Barack Hussein Obama, who a decade ago promoted inter-racial warfare in Kenya, has long tried to provoke civil unrest here in the U.S. with his hateful anti-cop rhetoric and his relentless demonization of opponents. His goal is fundamental transformation of the United States. A Red diaper baby who identifies violence-espousing communist Frantz Fanon as an intellectual influence, he has also steadfastly refused to condemn Black Lives Matter. In fact Obama has lavished attention on the movement’s leaders and invited them to the White House over and over again.
The Baton Rouge attack came 10 days after a black militant murdered five Dallas area police officers, the deadliest attack on U.S. law enforcement since Sept. 11, 2001.
A few days later Obama flew to Dallas and attended a memorial service at which he lectured the dead officers' relatives about how racist and brutal police officers are. The very next day Obama hosted leaders of Black Lives Matter, whose members urge the murder of cops, at the White House.
The Baton Rouge attack came 12 days after local police killed homeless recidivist Sterling during an altercation. Sterling, who had reportedly threatened a passer-by with a gun, violently resisted arrest and tried to grab a policeman's gun.
The shooter in Baton Rouge was killed by police following an exchange of gunfire outside a fitness center. He has been identified as Gavin Eugene Long, who claimed to have been a member of Nation of Islam. He also reportedly turned 29 yesterday.
Long was honorably discharged from the U.S. Marines in 2010. A fervent racist, he ranted against "crackers," the Daily Caller reports.
Long, who also used the name Cosmo Ausar Setepenra, talked about the Dallas massacre and recent police shootings of black men in social media posts, according to Heavy. “Violence is not THE answer (its [sic] a answer), but at what point do you stand up so that your people dont [sic] become the Native Americans…EXTINCT?,” he tweeted July 13.
Referring to the death of Alton Sterling, he said, "If I would have been there with Alton -- clap," Long said in a July 14 video. In the video he also discussed black liberation theology and said he wrote a book.
"I wrote it for my dark-skinned brothers," he said of the book.
"If you look at all the rebels like Black Panthers, Huey P. Newton, Malcolm X ... Elijah Muhammad, they was light-skinned. But we know how hard y'all got it."
In another video, Long justified his fellow ex-soldier and black militant Micah X. Johnson's killing of cops in Dallas. "It's justice, you know what I'm saying," Long said.
Long may also have telegraphed his plans in a cryptic Twitter post early Sunday morning. He wrote, "Just [because] you wake up every morning doesn't mean that you're living. And just [because] you shed your physical body doesn't mean that you're dead."
The officers Long killed are Brad Garafola, 45, Matthew Gerald, 41, and Montrell Jackson, 32.
Jackson, a black man, had poignantly sounded a note of despair in a Facebook post July 8, three days after Sterling's death at the hands of police and as racial tensions ramped up in Baton Rouge and across the nation...
