All actions have consequences

I was in the process of typing up an upbeat end-of-year synopsis of 2014 for this week’s column when I learned of the murders of two NYPD officers in Brooklyn.

Officers Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu were shot execution style by a coward named Ismaaiyl Brinsley.  A coward that snuck up to their patrol vehicle and executed them before they had a chance to react.  A coward who did this an act of revenge for the killings of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, and Eric Garner in Staten Island.  A coward who was inspired by the racial rhetoric coming from President Obama, Eric Holder, NYC Mayor Bill DeBlasio, their advisor Al Sharpton and the rest of the America-Haters looking to fundamentally change our nation.

This was racial rhetoric being fed to the public by an irresponsible left wing media; racial rhetoric that led to the murders of two law enforcement officers who had absolutely nothing to do with the original incidents.

Actions do have consequences.  In this new, bizarre world of the Alinskyites, a police officer doing his job and protecting his own life becomes the criminal and an out-of-control individual trying to kill that cop becomes the victim.

Police addressing community complaints from local merchants whose businesses were being undercut by an individual selling untaxed merchandise become murderers because they enforced the law, and , as sometimes happens, things fell apart.

This new age, left-wing process of reversing reality by condoning criminality and condemning rule of law will have serious consequences down the road.

When we turn the good guys into the bad guys and the bad guys into victims, when crowds chant about killing cops, we invite this sort of behavior.

The crazies crawl out of the woodwork to heed the tongue-to-cheek call to arms by leftist elected officials who, for political gain and with total disregard to the facts, condemn the actions of good men and women trying to wrest order out of an out-of-control society.

Meanwhile, they pretend that society’s miscreants are the victims of an overbearing police state.

At some point, society’s protectors will, out of self-preservation, give up, sit back and allow the alinskyites to call the shots.  When proactive policing becomes reactive policing, when cops are reduced to cleaning up the aftermath of crime instead of preventing it, we’re going to need those firearms that the leftists are trying to take away from us.

Our police won’t be able to help us; they’ll be too busy defending themselves from the America-haters.

The White House press pool reported that our president was told about this shooting while golfing on his Hawaiian vacation.  True to form, he continued his game while one of his lackeys issued a statement saying that there was “no justification” for the killings.

Really? I wonder if he’ll wax poetic about how these two officers could have been his imaginary sons.  I wonder if his attorney general will send 50 FBI agents to New York to investigate this heinous crime.  Will White House staffers attend their funerals?

While I’m sure there will be cover statements from the America-haters condemning this despicable act, there will always be a “but” attached.

That “but” will attach some responsibility to law enforcement and call for “both sides” or “all parties” to show restraint.

I’m also sure there will be a sudden media wave of support for law enforcement in the wake of this horrific attack; support that will be too little, to late for officers Liu and Ramos.
