Fox News’ Judge Jeanine Pirro Says Obama Only Cares When a ‘Person of Color’ Dies, Attacks His Responses to George Zimmerman, James Foley
Inspired by the deaths of Michael Brown and Eric Garner, Fox News host Jeanine Pirro stated during a Sunday broadcast of her syndicated show that the public needs to be “trained” to be more “sensitive” to law enforcement.
Fox News reports that upon wrapping up “Justice with Judge Jeanine,” the former New York prosecutor and judge made an ‘air-quote’ gesture when using the term “minority.”
Pirro then recited the Fox News “Instapoll” question, “Do police need to be retrained on how to be sensitive to the minority community?” and shared her own answer to the question.
“Tonight, Americans, once hopeful that after electing the first African-American president, the issue of race would be a thing of the past, are left with Barack Obama, who stokes the flames of racial hatred, resentment, and divisiveness,” she said. “A man who, instead of healing our nation and instead of overcoming any racial divide, prefers to take sides based not on facts, but on color, to prejudge situations based not on sworn testimony and evidence but on conjecture in a one-size-fits-all resentment.”
Pirro then unfavorably compared the causalities between Brown and white journalist and video reporter James Foley, who was working as freelance war correspondent for the Boston-based GlobalPost and Agence France-Presse during the Syrian Civil War. He was captured by Gaddafi loyalist forces and held for 44 days prior to being killed in the hills south of Raqqa.
“Every young American who loses his life should be the concern of the man in the White House. But why is it that we only hear from him when death involves a person of color?” Pirro inquired. “But James Foley, an American who never committed a crime and was beheaded, is nothing more than a blip in the president’s golf game. Mr. President, why do you send White House officials to Brown’s funeral but no one to James Foley’s memorial service?”
The judge then criticized Obama’s sending of Attorney General Eric Holder to Ferguson, Missouri, where Brown was killed.
“I don’t remember you injecting yourself in the death of a young white American or sending in the attorney general on a local crime before the justice system can act — as you did with Eric Holder, sending him to Ferguson,” Pirro continued.
On Aug. 21, however, Holder announced that the U.S. Justice Department is pursuing a criminal investigation into Foley’s death.
“We will not forget what happened ,and people will be held accountable, one way or the other,” he said according to the Washington Times.
Still, Pirro is unconvinced.
“Mr. President, you say we need trust between police and the African-American community, police need to be sensitive to minority concerns. Well, how about you teach respect for those who put their lives on the line every day, for those who protect us, for those who are the one line of defense against an otherwise barbaric and chaotic society?” Pirro protested.
Before criticizing Obama’s involvement with the myriad of issues facing the black community, Pirro also instigated his treatment of Al Sharpton and the murder of Trayvon Martin by George Zimmerman last year.
“You fan the flames of resentment, trumpeting your own investigation that you could have completed by now, only prolonging the anger, suggesting, ‘Yes, folks, this is yet another white injustice and I’m going to reverse with a federal civil rights investigation,’ when you know there isn’t a smidgen — your word — of evidence to support the claim … ” Pirro said. “Weren’t you going to reverse the Trayvon Martin-George Zimmerman case, with a federal investigation? What happened to that one? Nothing, absolutely nothing.”
