We have talked plenty about the demonization of police officers as a whole, but have hardly gone deep into those demonizations. White cops get automatically called racists just because of their skin color (and the people calling them such things do not realize the irony in their actions), and non-white cops, be they black or Latino, etc., essentially get called traitors to their race for being police officers.
The Leftist mentality is a sick and depraved one, full of nonsense and error that does not reflect reality in the least. To the Left, the police are a symbol of oppression and tyranny, built specifically for those purposes, when in reality, they are there to protect and serve (as if that slogan on the side of police cars wasn’t enough to tip people off).
Granted, not all of them manage to accomplish that, considering officers like Chauvin, the one who killed George Floyd, had 17 complaints levied against him for use of excessive force. Sometimes, a police officer does more to hurt than help, but the purpose of the police, and actions of the overwhelming majority of the police, is/are to the benefit, not the detriment, of people.
But the Left sees them as nothing but monsters, which is why they call the white cops “racists” automatically, not knowing who they are, what they believe, what they’ve done, where they come from, etc., and call the non-white cops “race traitors”, also not knowing their stories.
Well, one black cop held an interview with KGW8 recently to talk about the protests happening in Portland day after day and night after night (not that the media is covering these protests because that does a disservice to the Left and I think the media has figured this out, finally). Officer Jakhary Jackson was interviewed in a press conference about being on the frontlines at the Portland protests.
The interview (video below) was rather long at roughly half an hour, so I won’t cover everything that was said, just the most important parts, at least in my opinion.
One of the things Officer Jackson said was: “I got to see folks who really do want to see change like the rest of us that have been impacted by racism. And then I got to see those people get faded out by people that have no idea what racism is all about. Never experienced racism. They don’t even know that the tactics that they are using are the same tactics that were used against my people.”
He added: “Coming from someone who graduated from PSU with a history degree, it’s actually frightening… They say if you don’t know your history, you’re doomed to repeat it. And watching people do that to other people just because of what they’ve decided to do with their life.”
Speaking more about the earlier thing he said, about people that were actually impacted by racism get faded out by those who have no idea what racism is all about, Officer Jackson provided a very good and crucial example of the sort of idiotic “white knighting” white liberals do for black people when no one asked them to do anything of the sort.
The example is that, often times, he, as a black officer, is approached by black people and asked his opinion of the George Floyd killing or some other issue relating to race and the police. But every time he attempts to engage in conversation with people of color, and seemingly, this ONLY happens when minorities talk to him, a white liberal protester will come in and shout, saying “F the police. Don’t talk to him,” or something akin to that.
Seemingly, this is such a frequent occurrence that Officer Jackson can tell when it’s coming. Recently, Officer Jackson explains, a young black girl came up to him to ask him why he wouldn’t talk to the protesters, and as he began to explain that every time he tried doing so, he would get cut off by some white protester, as if on cue, a white protester came in and interrupted him. Jackson said: “right when I said that, this white girl pops right in front of her,” cutting him off from conversating with her. The black girl was amazed that it happened, saying: “He just said that was going to happen.” Jackson then said: “I told you,” to the girl.
Jackson then tried talking to the white girl who had interrupted his conversation with the black girl, saying: “I’ve been called the N-word. She’s been called the N-word. Why are you talking to me this way? Why do you feel that she can’t speak for herself to me? Why is it that you feel you need to speak for her when we’re having a conversation?” The white girl seemingly just replied: “Someone told me to do it.”
Peculiar. Considering I believe Democrat orgs are in charge of organizing these protests (I mean apart from BLM and Antifa), and have seen videos of Leftists recruiting people (bribing them) to participate in these protests or just do something to someone, I wouldn’t be surprised if that “someone” who instructed her to interrupt the conversation was a member of a Leftist organization.
The reason I theorize this is because we all know Leftists hate the truth, hate facts and hate knowledge. If the black girl had a real heart-to-heart conversation with the black officer, she might reevaluate certain things and actually grow in her understanding of the world. The Left can’t afford this, what they view as an atrocity – a black person leaving the Democrat slave plantation of thought – so they have random white people interrupt the conversation (or will do it themselves) to keep the free exchanging of thoughts from happening.
If the officers are allowed to explain things from their side, understanding might occur from some protesters, and the Left can’t afford that to happen if they want their pathetic little “revolution” to succeed, so they keep it from happening in a multitude of ways.
In any case, moving on from my little theory (of which I have little evidence to outright prove), Officer Jackson went on to describe other kinds of experiences he has had in dealing with protestors, many of which are not quite as mild as conversations being interrupted.
“I had taken an explosive, I had been hit with a full beer can, a rock in my chest, frozen water bottle had hit me.” Clearly, he has seen and experienced a lot of hatred just because of his desire to protect and serve his community – a community which would be in total shambles without a police presence.
Thankfully, not everything he shared was quite so grim, as he also noted that, after a protest, he met two young black men who were cleaning up the street (the Left always leaves litter and garbage on the streets in their protests, almost as if the idea that they care for the environment is total crap). “I was so moved by that and so impressed,” Officer Jackson said, that he went over to them to shake their hands.
Then, Officer Jackson said something pretty noteworthy. When asked by an interviewer about “some of the hateful and racist things” he and other minority officers have had to endure during the protests, Jackson said: “It says something when you’re at a Black Lives Matter protest; you have more minorities on the police side than you have in a violent crowd. And you have white people screaming at black officers ‘you have the biggest nose I’ve ever seen.’ You hear these things and you go ‘Are these people, are they going to say something to this person?’ No.”
“And that’s just one example. Having people tell you what to do with your life, that you need to quit your job, that you’re hurting your community but they’re not even a part of the community. Once again, you as a privileged white person telling someone of color what to do with their life.” The interviewer suggested that such a thing was “hypocrisy” from the protesters and Jackson “absolutely” agreed.
I, for one, am not at all surprised to see Leftists being racist. Anti-white racism (which we’ll get to in a minute) is not only allowed, but celebrated and encouraged, if the incident with Nick Cannon is any indication, but even anti-black racism, if thrown at acceptable targets, is also not only allowed, but celebrated and encouraged.
Black police officers get called traitors to their race, just like black conservatives do. Hell, Joe freakin’ Biden said that if you are black and you are on the fence about whether you support him or Trump, “you ain’t black.” The jackass had the audacity to tell this to a BLACK radio show host, Charlamagne Tha God, who just ignored that statement basically or took no offense to it at all, probably because he’s a Leftist and he intends to vote for Biden anyway.
The Left will claim they aren’t racists while DM’ing black conservatives on Twitter and calling them the N-word. The Left will claim they support women and hate sexists while passing around rumors about Hope Hicks, a female Trump campaign staffer, sleeping around with multiple male Trump campaign staffers, making jokes about her being “passed around” like a hake sack in a college dorm room.
The same Left that kept black people slaves and FOUGHT to keep them as such today attack black people who leave the Democrat plantation of thought or who just want to serve their communities by being police officers.
The ONLY difference between today’s Left and the Left of the 19th and 20th centuries is that today’s Leftists are also anti-white. They are still every bit anti-black that they always have been, but they pretend to be pro-black and pro-minority. In reality, they see minorities as property that exists solely to get them elected.
Speaking of anti-white rhetoric, the Left definitely employs it against police officers. Unsurprisingly, Officer Jackson has also defended white police officers, knowing the sorts of things that they have to go through on the regular (things that snowflake Leftists would never dare to do once, let alone as a job).
Officer Jackson explains that, whenever someone uses the N-word against him, he has seen white officers jump in to defend him against such a person. Jackson also notes that he has witnessed these white officers try to save black residents in the city from dangerous situations:
“When you’re standing on the line and they’re getting called those names and they’re being accused of being racist when you’ve seen those officers helping people of color, getting blood on them trying to rescue someone who has been shot – gang violence, domestic violence – and you see them and they’re truly trying to help save someone’s life and they turn around and are called a racist by people that have never seen anything like that, that have never had to put themselves out there. It’s disgusting.”
The Left foolishly believes that entire police departments can be eliminated and we would only see improvement in this country in terms of racial equality and crime. They believe all you need to take care of and diffuse a potentially dangerous situation is an unarmed government worker trying to talk people out of being evil like they’re a cartoon character.
Reality, as always, is far different from what the Left perceives it to be. Cops aren’t intended for “tyranny” or “oppression.” They don’t exist to “keep black folk down.” They exist to protect and serve their communities, and statistically, many black communities need plenty of policing due to the violence present there (largely due to the Left’s economic policies that hurt people from the bottom-up).
I remember in my first year of high school in South Florida seeing police officers a lot of the time, not because the kids were overwhelmingly black (the school was located in the outskirts of Little Haiti), but because there were fights that happened just about every single day. And not small or silly fights that at most got people sent to the principal’s office either. I mean fights that were big and bad enough that cops needed to come in to separate and, in some cases, detain the kids and put them in handcuffs and in the back of the squad cars.
Again, the reason wasn’t because the kids were black or because the cops are racist, but because there were situations where the cops NEEDED to be there.
Just as cops are NEEDED in many places today, especially in the places run by Democrats (if the WaPo chart showing crime in a number of cities is any indication).
I pray for Officer Jackson’s safety (and the safety of the other officers as well) as the city of Portland is run by a dangerous and unstable clown.
“You brood of vipers! How can you speak good, when you are evil? For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. The good person out of his good treasure brings forth good, and the evil person out of his evil treasure brings forth evil.”
We bring you the TRUTH that the Left denies you. You'll live a more joyful and victorious life, because the Truth will set you free...
