Our prayers are with police officers.
Again, yesterday, we lost another police officer. The one in Kansas City. Today, two cops were targeted in New York. These are assassinations. How many people have to die? How many people have to die?
You know, I said years ago, "1968 is coming, and if you want to fully repeat history, all that is lacking is the assassinations." And here they are. These officers are being targeted, executed, assassinated. Can we just think here for a minute about the families? And not the ones who have died, but the families who today, at the breakfast table, had to say goodbye to their husband or their mother or their child.
Imagine what those children are hearing on the playgrounds. You know they're hearing it on the playgrounds. You know they're seeing it on the news. You know they're hearing the whispered tension between mom and dad. And you know mom and dad have said to them, "Don't worry."
Imagine what all of the children of all of our police officers are going through every night. Imagine the nightmares that they are having, that their dad is not coming home tonight. And this is only gonna get worse.
Imagine the tension in the homes. Imagine the tension -- you know cops are just -- most of them are just like military. They're not going to leave their brethren out there. They're watching their backs. They want to be their for their brothers. And imagine the wives who are saying, "You got to quit, honey. You got to quit."
"I can't quit, honey. If I quit, who is going to stand the line?"
And the fathers who have to look at their children, hearing their wife beg them, "Please, retire, get out, do something else." Looking at their children who are trying to hide their fear that they're not going to see dad and then going out on the streets and people treating them like garbage. Turning on television and seeing the president of the United States say what he said. Seeing Hillary Clinton at the DNC hold up a guy who the left has held up as a hero, when all of the cops have been cleared of any wrongdoing. And they're bringing mom in to speak at the DNC?
What do you feel like if you're a cop today? What do you feel like if you're a spouse of a cop?
I know my children --- and I don't face any of this --- I know my children: "Dad, stop. Stop doing it. Stop." I don't face this. These guys are being assassinated. They really, honestly don't know . . . they're walking down the street, they get out of their car, they go to buy a cup of coffee, they go to stop somebody, they're called for assistance. We don't have anybody really, truly leading the charge on this.
It's despicable what our president is doing. And, quite honestly, it's despicable what the media is doing. Are there problems in the black communities? Are there problems in the white communities? Yes. Are there problems in government and media? Yes. Are there problems in the police department? Yes. But is nobody in the media willing to stand up and say, "We can't have any kind of conversation, no conversation if you can't say, enough with the violence?
Can you imagine if the Tea Party Tea Party would have said any of the stuff that Black Lives Matter has said. The leaders of it. Can you imagine if we would have said just one line that has been said by the Black Panthers, one line that was said by Louis Farrakhan? Can you imagine? And then if the Koch brothers would have funded that movement, where the leaders were saying that thing, like George Soros has funded Black Lives Matter. Can you imagine one police officer being killed? One. Like white on rice.
Now, this has nothing to do with the double standard of politics; this has everything to do with the double standard of humanity. Where is your humanity? You people in the media, you politicians, shame on you. These are the guys that protect your ass every day. These are the guys that will get shot before you get shot. And you don't have the balls to stand up and say, "This is obscene?"
Shame on you.
