Media and Democrats spent the last couple of days attacking President Donald Trump for allegedly not saying enough to criticize the white nationalist violence in Charlottesville.
He condemned hate and violence on all sides which actually was a very accurate response since there was violence on both sides.
But in a similar situation, after 5 police officers were assassinated in Dallas by a black nationalist who had been inspired by Black Lives Matter, former President Barack Obama failed to condemn them.
From Daily Wire:
In his initial response, Obama, like Trump, did not single out black nationalists or the movement associated with the heinous act. Instead, Obama said that he was “horrified” by the “vicious, calculated and despicable attack on law enforcement.”
“There is no possible justification for these kinds of attacks or any violence against law enforcement,” said Obama. “Anyone involved in the senseless murders will be held fully accountable. Justice will be done.”
Not only didn’t he condemn the actual rationale behind the action, he tried to blame it on guns.
Obama also used the moment as an opportunity to push for more gun control. “Today is a wrenching reminder of the sacrifices they make for us,” Obama said of police officers. “We also know when people are armed with powerful weapons, unfortunately, it makes attacks like these more deadly and more tragic.”
Trump, who gave his initial statement right after the car attack became public, updated his remarks today and specifically condemned the KKK, white supremacists and neo-Nazis.
But Obama never updated his remarks or criticized black nationalists and Black Lives Matter.
In fact, he doubled down on gun control and said something demostrably false.
“We flood communities with so many guns that it is easier for a teenager to buy a Glock than get his hands on a computer or even a book.
“And then we feign surprise when, periodically, the tensions boil over.
Did any of the liberal media criticize Obama for his statements?
