Sorry if this is falling on deaf ears, Barack, but if you wanted “unity” from Americans, meeting with scumbags like Deray McKesson and Al Sharpton sure is a curious way of going about it.
“It is so important that everyone, regardless of race or political party or profession, regardless of what organizations you are a part of, everyone, right now, focus on words and actions that can unite this country rather than divide it further,” he said.
Baton Rouge authorities confirmed Sunday that three officers were killed and three more were injured, one critically, when responding to a report of a man armed with an assault rifle at around 8:45 a.m.
The man believed to be responsible for the shooting, Kansas City, Mo., resident Gavin Long, age 29, was shot and killed by police at the scene. The violence in Baton Rouge follows the shooting death of five police officers last week in Dallas.
Baton Rouge was also in the spotlight last week, after police shot and killed a black man, Alton Sterling, and the aftermath was caught on video.
Meanwhile, this piece of shit who’s helped instigate police murders offered up some empty words.
Prominent Black Lives Matter activist DeRay Mckesson is calling for peace after at least three police officers were shot and killed in Baton Rouge, La., on Sunday.
“The movement began as a call to end violence,” Mckesson told The New York Times. “That call remains.”
Nothing like some revisionist history to try and avoid blame. Fuck you, Deray. And this is the clown who sits with Obama and Sharpton at the White House.
“We are at the @WhiteHouse right now for a 3-hour convening w/ President Obama re: the recent events in #BatonRouge & across the country,” Mckesson tweeted Wednesday.
Mckesson wrote he will be joined by fellow activist Brittany Packnett and Minneapolis-based Black Lives Matter leader Mica Grimm.
The president is sitting down with nearly three-dozen law enforcement officials, civil rights leaders, educators and local politicians at the White House in the aftermath of the massacre of five police officers in Dallas.
Well, that really worked out well, huh?
