Hillary Clinton is not even speaking to the largest police union in the country, even as she actively courts the “Black Lives Matter” vote, and the police are noticing.
From the Hill:
Top officials at the biggest police union in the country are upset with Hillary Clinton, saying she snubbed them.
The leader of the National Fraternal Order of Police told The Hill that the Democrat sent a signal through her staff that she wouldn’t be seeking the union’s endorsement.
It sends a powerful message. To be honest with you, I was disappointed and shocked,” said Chuck Canterbury, the president of the National Fraternal Order of Police.
“You would think with law enforcement issues so much in the news that even if she had disagreements with our positions, that she would’ve been willing to say that.”
So what does that mean for a Hillary presidency? That “Black Lives Matter” activists have more say over our law enforcement policies than the police?
The reason for this is obvious – she needs to make sure that Obama’s coalition shows up for her, and embracing cops just ain’t gonna do it. But she’s also driving away tons of people who would rather have cops policing our neighborhoods than “Black Lives Matter” activists, thugs and rioters.
The union will not be meeting with Clinton because her campaign decided not to fill out a questionnaire that is required for seeking the police union’s endorsement.
“We were talking to the highest levels of the campaign, and we had all indications that she was going to return the questionnaire,” Canterbury said.
“And on the deadline date we were advised that they declined.”
The Fraternal Order of Police has a strict process for making a presidential endorsement.
It first sends each candidate a lengthy questionnaire; after the candidates complete and return their questionnaires, the union distributes the answers to its membership.
Finally, in September, the state chapters vote, and if a candidate receives majority support in two-thirds of the states, he or she wins the union’s endorsement.
This year, only Trump’s campaign filled out the questionnaire.
What a dumb move on her part, what with the cheeto-faced idiot declaring himself the “law and order candidate” – even as he advocates for unconstitutional policies, and says he’ll force our military to follow illegal orders. This is becoming a contest between two idiots who can’t help but throw the election to the other idiot. DO they even want to be President?!
