On "Justice" last night, Judge Jeanine Pirro said the Dallas police ambush is a reflection of a growing racial divide in America, a divide that was created by President Obama.
"Dallas was about anarchy. It was about lawlessness. It was about the rhetoric that too easily inflames those who feel wronged, rhetoric that does nothing but repeatedly stoke the flames and scars of old wounds resolved long ago," Judge Jeanine said.
She explained that whether it's the death of Trayvon Martin in Florida or Michael Brown in Missouri, Obama stokes the flames of racial unrest every chance he gets.
"Mr. President, you've done nothing but tell us we deserve it. You've done nothing but look back in the rearview mirror," Judge Jeanine said.
"But when I look at Dallas, all I saw were whites and blacks running away from anarchy. All I saw were whites and blacks picking each other up. That's the America I see. And no one is going to change my mind. And no one - not even you, Mr. President - is going to do that."
Watch Judge Jeanine's powerful opening statement above and read a full transcript below.
Americans got over the racial divide when we elected a black president - not only once but twice.
Americans overwhelmingly voted for the man, blind to his color. His color made no difference to American voters. Long past the issue of race, voters long past the civil war, long past the civil rights era, focused more on the content of the character than the color of the skin.
But this week's shooting of 12 police officers and two civilians in Dallas is a reflection of a new deep division created by that very man.
The shooting in Dallas was not just about racism. Make no mistake, that dirt bag shooter who will remain nameless in this open, was a racist. An African-American, he wanted to kill only white people, especially white officers.
And the shooting in Dallas wasn't just about police brutality. I got news for you, folks: Police brutality is color blind. It crosses all racial and ethnic lines. I know - I’ve prosecuted them.
It wasn't just about someone mentally ill. I've always found that stigma too easy an excuse for evil.
And it wasn't just about guns, either.
Dallas was about anarchy. It was about lawlessness. It was about the rhetoric that too easily inflames those who feel wronged, rhetoric that does nothing but repeatedly stoke the flames and scars of old wounds resolved long ago.
At a time when Americans were both experiencing and fearing the reality of a Muslim jihad against us, our president - at a prayer breakfast, no less - attempts to reconcile or explain murders in the name of Allah with this.
And after the shooting of 12 police officers, he seeks to again remind us not of the situation at hand the shooting of 14 people but instead talks of the deaths of two African-Americans, a follow-up that seems like another "get off your high horse."
Every chance he gets, he stokes the flames. Example: Trayvon Martin, followed by a not guilty verdict. And Ferguson’s Michael Brown, a thug who tried to grab a cop's gun and got himself shot. There wasn't an indictment and not even federal charges against the police officer.
Ferguson was about anarchy, and anyone with a functioning brain would have to assume for Michael Brown grab a cop's gun suggests it wasn't his first encounter with the law. Who told Brown that he and not the law should be in control? And yet the Department of Justice the attorney general and high end government officials rush to Ferguson, to his funeral as well.
And Baltimore - another training ground for anarchists. A perceived wrong, the response based on rhetoric of racial injustice and hate should be a violent protest? The burning of businesses, many owned by African Americans? A DA who outrageously runs to a microphone and announces an indictment of six cops saying she hears the calls of a lawless mob. And again all the police painted as racists, yet no convictions. And it was an African-American judge who made the calls.
And in New York the chant: "What do we want? Dead cops. When do we want them? Now." And then two cops innocently eating lunch in their squad car assassinated not long after.
We have leaders who vehemently support the First Amendment language and protests that call for the deaths of those who wear the badge, but then caution us to not say something that would offend another's religion.
And our president - upon hearing of the assassination of five police officers, all white, and the shooting of seven other officers - wants to talk about a white kid walking into a black church shooting. Why, Mr. President, are you even bringing this up? It's the same thing you did at the prayer breakfast. After an American has his head cut off, you want to talk about the crusades, as if, "It’s your turn." Mr. President, you've done nothing but tell us we deserve it. You've done nothing but look back in the rearview mirror.
But when I look at Dallas, all I saw were whites and blacks running away from anarchy. All I saw were whites and blacks picking each other up. That's the America I see. And no one is going to change my mind. And no one - not even you, Mr. President - is going to do that.
