RUSH: Now, in New York, the mayor, predictably — I mean, this guy is an admitted socialist. I don’t think anybody should be surprised when this guy throws his own police force under the bus. And the way he threw his own police force under the bus, do you realize that New York City policemen are the body guards for his kids? They ensure that his kids get wherever they have to go, school or wherever it is, safely, and then back home safely. And he threw ‘em under the bus yesterday. He admitted that he’s had to take his son aside and warn him about the cops. This the mayor.
This is the mayor, who is protected daily by the cops, admitting that he’s taking his kid aside, and saying, “Look.” He’s not saying when a cop stops you, say, “yes, sir, yes, sir.” That’s not what he’s warning. He’s warning them that the cops want to hurt you because you’re black, the cops. And the police, benevolent police association, they are just outraged. They’ve been thrown under the bus. This is unprecedented. I mean, there have been mayors that have had problems with an incident here or there, but you’ve never had a mayor throw the entire police force and its motivation under the bus like de Blasio did.
And then de Blasio announced three days of reeducation camp for the cops. Remember, de Blasio, I said yesterday, he had his press conference and he talked about the fatal flaw since the founding of our country, and it’s finally time to deal with it. This country was flawed from its founding. I have been trying to get people to understand that this is what the left thinks for six years, because that’s what Obama thinks. This country was illegitimately founded, it was unjustly founded, it was immoral, the way it was founded. And no matter what’s happened since the founding to deal with whatever injustices doesn’t count.
The Civil Rights Act of ’64, doesn’t matter. None of it matters. There isn’t a thing anybody’s done to improve anything. The flaw is still there, and de Blasio has suggested that the cops get three days to learn nonjudgmental posture. Can I ask a simple question here, ladies and gentlemen? Why is it that the police are the ones who have to get training to change their behavior? What about the thugs? What about the lawbreakers? What about people in their communities who are breaking the law and causing the trouble? Why do they get a pass?
Why is it not politic, why is it prejudicial, why is it racist to suggest that maybe they should get some retraining, too? Why do the thugs never have to adjust? Why is it it’s the cops? Why is it in liberal places like New York, why is it the onus on the cops to adjust to the thugs? And are you kidding me? The families of these people as honored guests of the president at the State of the Union?
