After the recent tragic shooting of two NYPD police officers at the hands of a lone gunman, it was only a matter of time before people began the process of politicizing the tragedy for their own personal gain. Stacey Dash, a former actress and recent political commentator, might be the first prominent voice to make very strange statements in public.
Both Dash and actor James Woods went to Twitter this morning to blame the shooting of two NYPD officers on Rev. Al Sharpton and New York Mayor Bill deBlasio. Woods has been using hashtags to get the NYPD to turn their backs on the mayor and Rev. Sharpton, referring to the reverend as “Pig Sharpton” using hashtags like #BlueLivesMatter #TurnYourBacks on #RaceHucksters.
According to TheGrio.com, Dash has followed Woods’ lead by making a damning statement connecting Sharpton to the killings, almost seeming to say that he and deBlasio were directly responsible.
“These murders are the natural result of the #Jihad on cops that @TheRevAl & @deBlasioNYC has called for. They should be held accountable,” she said on Twitter.
The incident that these two are referring to is the shooting “execution-style” of two NYPD officers Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos, who were sitting in their car in Brooklyn. Since that time, tensions have heightened even further, after it was revealed that the alleged shooter committed the killings as revenge for the police decision to kill Eric Garner and not prosecute those responsible.
Isaiah 56:11 Yea, they are greedy dogs which can never have enough, and they are shepherds that cannot understand: they all look to their own way, every one for his gain, from his quarter.
Jeremiah 50:6 My people hath been lost sheep: their shepherds have caused them to go astray, they have turned them away on the mountains: they have gone from mountain to hill, they have forgotten their restingplace.
