The Politicization of the Police and Fire Forces


Before I jump into the latest regarding Chicago, home of Al Capone, Rahm Emanuel, and the Daley brothers I’m going to backtrack about a half a year in order to clarify the point of the article.

This past January, after the Tucson shooting, when the nation was enveloped in sadness and grief, Arizona sheriff Clarence Dupnik shamelessly ran around on interviews and blamed the “vitriol” from talk show hosts, tea parties, and Sarah Palin for the terrible shooting. As the sheriff of Pima County, many expected him to set the facts straight. Instead, he stood together with the Paul Krugman’s of society and spread deliberate misinformation and hate across the country, rather than seeking justice against Jared Loughner.

It’s now almost six months later and Dupnik still hasn’t resigned. And why should he? Is blaming and framing innocent people for murder without a shred of proof a reason to resign? The left and the media obviously don’t think so, since there were no editorials in any newspapers demanding his resignation.

Mark Levin aka “The Great One”, finishes his show daily with “we salute our armed forces, police officers, fire fighters, and all emergency personnel.” I agree with him wholeheartedly, for without them this nation would’ve succumbed to chaos. However, there are individuals attempting to politicize these selfless groups and conservatives must come out against them before it’s too late.

Sheriff Dupnik is but one example of a law-enforcer using his position in an attempt to influence others against conservatives. His accusations were far worse and had a greater impact than the media’s, because as a public servant he’s expected and supposed to put his own political beliefs aside in order to promote justice for all.

Here’s another incident that occurred this past April.

Sarah Palin was scheduled to appear at an anti-tax tea party rally in Madison, Wisconsin in support of Governor Walker and the union reforms he fought for. The day before the rally, the WI fire union sent out a memo to all its members that they should come out to protest and disrupt the rally. Although the majority of the fire fighters ignored the memo, there were some members whose loyalty to the union came before their respect for their uniform and job.

This leads to Chicago and their new Al Capone of a mayor Rahm Emanuel who is perhaps best known for the dead fish he has sent in the past to those he disagreed with.

Emanuel appointed Garry McCarthy, former Newark police chief, as Chicago police superintendent. Garry spoke last week in Rev. Michael Pfleger’s church (which is known for their liberal anti-American beliefs) against federal gun laws calling it government-sponsored racism. He then denounced Sarah Palin because she promoted hunting in her TLC show thus blaming her for gun violence in New Jersey! Below is a partial transcript of his speech with the complete video right here.

“This is sensitive. You know, because everybody’s afraid of race. Have you noticed that? Everybody’s afraid of race,” McCarthy, a former New York and Newark police official said. “So here’s what I want to tell you. See, let’s see if we can make a connection here. Slavery. Segregation. Black codes. Jim Crow. What, what did they all have in common? Anybody getting’ scared? Government sponsored racism.”

“Now I want you to connect one more dot on that chain of the African American history in this country, and tell me if I’m crazy: Federal gun laws that facilitate the flow of illegal firearms, into our urban centers across this country, that are killing our black and brown children,” he said.

“The NRA does not like me, and I’m okay with that. We’ve got to get the gun debate back to center, and it’s got to come with the recognition of who’s paying the price for the gun manufacturers being rich and living in gated communities,” McCarthy said, recalling back from the scene of a crime to switch on the television and find “Sarah Palin’s Alaska” showing.

“She was caribou hunting, and talking about the right to bear arms,” he said. “Why wasn’t she at the crime scene with me?”

Emanuel’s appointment of such a nut and hater as the police chief in Chicago will politicize the police force into an anti- NRA, anti-whites, and anti-conservatives, movement. Chicago is a city with some of the strictest gun laws in the country and had last year just as many fatal shootings as NYC had last year with only a third the size of a population. Harsher gun controls has proven to cause more gun casualties since the criminals that get the guns illegally continue to do so, while the law-abiding citizens aren’t equipped to defend themselves and others.

These incidents may seem unrelated, but in reality they are all one and the same.

Dennis Prager frequently points out an eye-opening fact how the left destroys everything and anything they get a hand on.

The left took over science and turned it into one big joke as evidenced with emailgate which proved global warming to be a hoax.

When Fact magazine announced that 1,189 psychiatrists saw Barry Goldwater as emotionally unstable, grossly psychiatric, and psychologically unfit to serve as president, amongst many other derogatory terms, respect for psychiatrists and psychiatry flew out the window.

When the liberals got involved in education and teachers’ rights, it resulted in the education from U.S. public school children sliding from first spot in the world to the 17th in 2010, no matter how much money has since been poured down the education drain!

The left has not spared anything from their touch including colleges, health care, energy and even marriage. We now have quite a few states that have legalized gay marriage, as NY did this past Friday, thereby destroying the definition of marriage which has existed for thousands of years. Marriage has always been defined as “the formal union between one man and one woman.” Now that is no longer the case.

Liberals have taken immigration and changed it from a symbol and proof of the respect foreigners had for this great republic and their desire to live in one, to the largest voting bloc which needs to be bribed and won over at any and every cost.

The left won’t be satisfied until every institution and corner of this country is in sync with their distorted views. Their newest target appears to be the men and women providing protection to the public whether from gangs, fire, or terrorists. This is why the left fought so hard to overturn “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell” in the military. It wasn’t about freedom because gays were always allowed to serve; they were delighted to gain recognition and influence in a predominantly conservative territory.

We conservatives must fight against the left before the entire police and fire departments are totally destroyed and become just like the SEIU. I repeat my respect for police officers and fire fighters and admire their courage for putting themselves in line for the safety of others. The respect the right and I have for these institutions doesn’t exist in the left doesn’t exist in the left as seen in Obama’s naming a police officer’s action “stupid” before knowing any of the details involved.

The left is attempting in politicize these selfless groups through the unions and liberal mayors in order to use them as another tool through which to further advance their liberal agenda as seen in Wisconsin. We must put a stop to this before they succeed, because as experience shows, once the damage is done it is almost impossible to undo.
