Former President George W. Bush and former First Lady Laura Bush were in attendance at a memorial for the five Dallas police officers murdered at a Black Lives Matter protest. The five police officers were shot by Micah Xavier Johnson who was killed by police after a long stand-off in a Dallas parking garage. Johnson said that he wanted to kill white people, especially white police. The memorial was a very emotional time for the former President and his wife.
George W. Bush gave a speech in which he expressed his appreciation for the men and women of law enforcement. Barack Obama, on the other hand, took time to talk about gun control and promote sympathy for the Black Lives Matter movement. Bush used his time at the podium to honor the 5 officers, while Obama turned the memorial into a political opportunity to advance his liberal agenda.
The Federalist Papers Project reports:
Former President George W. Bush and First Lady Laura Bush were in attendance at the memorial for Dallas police on Tuesday to honor the lives of 5 officers who were killed in the line of duty during a Black Lives Matter protest.
Obama used his speech to lecture us about how “we” need to “open our hearts” on the subject of race and pushed his usual gun control agenda. He also upset a lot of people by referring to himself 45 times over the course of the speech he delivered. At one point police officers refused to applaud his defense of Black Lives Matter.
