Has Obama done enough to curb anti-police sentiment and support law enforcement?
Overly-restrained language is the hallmark of Obama's comments whenever "supporting" police and "condemning" violent behavior. Clearly, no one in the entire country has listened to his ineffectual words. Is that the intent?
Obama's anti-police attitude began soon after he was elected by claiming Massachusetts police "acted stupidly" when arresting a black Harvard professor. That phrase has followed Obama through the entire length of his administration and here we are today with marches around the nation supporting thugs and threatening police. Obama, having said "A," the marchers now say "B."
If Obama has any problem with those marches and the sentiment behind them, no one is aware of it. He met with demonstrators in Missouri to urge them on, not quiet them down.
Congressman Peter King (R-NY) has called on Obama and the news media to stop the "cop bashing."
Does Obama feel any need to go to greater lengths to support the police? No. He is currently in Hawaii saying he "condemns" the killing of the New York police. And what effect is that supposed to have on those who are learning it's okay to hate the police in a very public way?
The "bad guys" are winning in today's world because that's what the leaders of prominent nations are, including our own.

The US has now blamed North Korea for the hack, perhaps with a little help from their friends the Chinese.
The movie mocks North Korean leader Kim Jong-un and he is assassinated at the end.
Actors such as George Clooney were outraged that a dictator decided if the public could or couldn't watch a movie.
Fears of a "chilling effect" on the freedom of the movie industry are already being voices. Supposedly another movie in the work has been canned as a result of the hacker threat.
But the odd part of all this is the longstanding and unstated ban on movies mocking and criticizing US President Barack Obama. Before the Sony hack, it was easy to make a movie attacking Kim, but where are the movies making fun of Obama? Rush Limbaugh recently pointed out the improbability of actors such as Clooney defending an anti-Obama film but would instead demand that it be cancelled just like the Kim film. Actors demand that the anti-Kim film be seen, but it's likely they would demand an anti-Obama movie be shelved and hidden from view.
Will there be any attempt from Hollywood to "push back" from the Sony debacle and make some movies that mock world leaders including Obama? The fears of hacking, terror, and political incorrectness shout a resounding No.
The answer: Go Rogue!
No one ever saw the issue on a ballot, but immigrant numbers have doubled since 1990. And Obama's heavy-handedness in increasing that flow have shocked even some on his side of the political aisle. Obama is deliberately tearing apart the social fabric of the US and causing social chaos. No one will ever call him "The Great Uniter."
- Bringing in illegal teenagers and depositing them all around the country
- DHS aiding illegals in entering the country
- Dramatically cutting back on illegals deported
- Trade deal with repressive rogue regime Cuba
- Exchanging spies with Cuba to the outrage of survivor families
- Obama approved the Feinstein/Democrats' CIA 'Torture Report' with the expected result that the bad guys around the world can portray the US as torturers and the heat is off them.
- Obama did little to stop riots and protests resulting from the death of thug Michael Brown at the hands of a policeman he assaulted. He never said what he knew he needed to say to stop the protests because he never wanted them stopped and always desired a mid-level of street chaos. The Commander in Chief is now hated by most police and military.

Obama's speeches on the Ferguson riots seem designed more toward implicating police rather than what he described as a "handful" of protesters breaking the law.
If Obama weren't president, would he be out there in Ferguson rioting, throwing stones and whatnot at the police?
His sympathies are never far from protesters no matter who is to blame and for what, and he can never resist getting in his little digs at law enforcement who are tasked with protecting law-abiding citizens; in other words, non-rioters.
Obama plays a role akin to a "conquering general" who leads an invading force against the indigenous population. Often he takes this role when talking about illegal immigrants, favoring them over citizens, but in this case he is the "leader" of the rioters.
Race relations, if anything, are worse than when Obama took office, and he was supposed to usher in a post-racial society. Yet many have the feeling that civil unrest is a linchpin of Obama's underlying domestic agenda, with no lack of evidence to back that up.

Several media outlets noted that Obama tried to "calm" the situation, yet his words seemed half-hearted as he continued to suggest the police were at fault, just as he has always faulted the police since he was elected.
Earlier, he had told the Ferguson protesters to "stay the course." He has no real problem with the protests. His hatred is reserved for the police. What needs to change in the future? According to Obama, the police, not violence against police.
Obama's election was supposed to dispel racial issues yet now we see that he presides over them and refuses to use his influence to stop racial violence in its tracks.
