Rudy Giuliani Lies While Blaming Obama For The Murder of Two New York Police Officers

In order to blame Obama for the murder of two New York police officers, Rudy Giuliani had to tell a massive lie about the president that had no relationship to reality.

Video:

Giuliani said, “We’ve had four months of propaganda starting with the president that everybody should hate the police. The protests are being embraced, the protests are being encouraged. The protests, even the ones that don’t lead to violence, a lot of them lead to violence, all of them lead to a conclusion: The police are bad, the police are racist. That is completely wrong.”

Rudy Giuliani was lying. President Obama has never said anything that would encourage hatred of the police.

On August 14, Obama spoke about Ferguson and said, “There is never an excuse for violence against police, or for those who would use this tragedy as a cover for vandalism or looting.”

Obama had this to say after the grand jury decision was announced in the Michael Brown case, “I also appeal to the law enforcement officials in Ferguson and the region to show care and restraint in managing peaceful protests that may occur. Understand, our police officers put their lives on the line for us every single day. They’ve got a tough job to do to maintain public safety and hold accountable those who break the law. As they do their jobs in the coming days, they need to work with the community, not against the community, to distinguish the handful of people who may use the grand jury’s decision as an excuse for violence — distinguish them from the vast majority who just want their voices heard around legitimate issues in terms of how communities and law enforcement interact.”

There is nothing in the president’s public remarks that would back up Giuliani’s claim that Obama has been spreading anti-police propaganda. Giuliani’s comments are straight from the Fox News talking points that President Obama is responsible for any violent acts or protests against the police.

Fox News has been stirring up racial divides since President Obama took office, but Giuliani’s blatant lies are new low, even for Fox.

  1. screw the police, they are killing black african american men as if it were deer hunting season

    If right wingers cannot connect the dots between 50% african american male unemployment and violence against their jailers …then

    They can screw off also… everyone has a breaking point and since the right worships guns may they receive their due retribution.

  2. How can people like Giuliani live with themselves? He knows he is lying, he knows it is he and others like him who are stirring up racial discord. I guess they know they can’t win on ideas for progress in America so they are stirring up the racists to get them to get out and vote. That is the only explanation I can come up with. We are truly seeing some very sad times in this country.

    One thing I’m sure they haven’t done though is to think this through (as is typical with Republicans) to its logical conclusion. The end, IMHO, will be a nation of citizens who are out of control and at war with each other. This is not going to turn out well.

  3. Lets fully understand he knows he is lying. They all know they are lying. The y are doing one simple thing. Getting Obama’s name out there. Lou Dobbs does it 24/7 on facebook. All of the Fox and GOP representatives are doing it.

    All to make people think Obama is guilty of everything. Dont waste your time worrying about them lying, they arnt

  4. Of course, Obama was so quick to come out and say we shouldn’t pre-judge the motives of Nadal Hassan in the Kerrville shooting, even though he was shouting, “Allahu Akbar”. He did not do the same in this case. He insinuated as did Eric Holder that the case was all about race, when it clearly was self defense I, absolutely, hold Obama, Holder and Sharpton responsible for this.
    They did nothing to stop the protests, or to bring calm to the situation.

  5. Bullcrap. They called for nothing but peaceful demonstrations.

    This case was self defense? Really? 2 cops killed and it was self defense?

    Hold whoever you want, we find you funny as hell.You do what you are told

  6. He saw the ghost of Christmas future and it didnt look good for him. Relinquished to propaganda spewing at faux news and never again a GOP president.

  7. There is a 1st Amendment in this country – protests cannot be stopped. We have that right. I’m sure if this were some issue that was important to YOU, you would like to be able to resort to protests to effect change.

    That said, at no time did either one of those men call for violence against the police. AT NO TIME. Moreover, all of the shootings of minorities by the police – they were not all done in self-defense and if you think that, truly think that, you are deluding yourself.

    I’m sorry, but I find your “blame game” to be nothing more than a simplistic ideological response to what is a complicated situation.

  8. The funny thing is, the gop attach Obamas name to cellphone program that works great for the poor, but was started under Bush in 2008 and expanded due to Bush administration’s economic disaster. Obamacare was called ACA and is doing great things.

    They’re gonna see the name Obama means greatness thanks to the gop.

  9. First, the protests are borne out of a movement that wasn’t against all police; the protests are a call to stop the inequity of POC by law enforcement, in particular the shooting and killing of unarmed Black men and women at a disproportionate rate.

    Second, the response to these latest horrible shootings are uneven; o one is mentioning that he killed someone before heading to New York, and his targeting of police has nothing to do with the protesters – the majority of whom have been promoting and acting in non-violent protests to be heard.

    Third, Eric Holder, as the DOJ head representative, has a duty to investigate and make statements on incidents of civil rights violations, so do your research before making broad and gross generalizations. POTUS has a responsibility to speak out on behalf of all citizens; just because you are uncomfortable w/our president discussing race issues does not mean he is encouraging it.

    Finally, who is responsible when a random White person kills …

  10. BaliHai84..Are you stupid or something. Do the site a favor and go back and stay with FOX.
    Giuliani is and adulterous, old evil white man, that used the 9/11 as a stepping stone to make him self look important. When in reality he isn’t sh$t. This guy would sell his mother for the lime light. So he’s not worrying about telling a few lies.

  11. This adulterous old, evil, white man would say anything to stay in the lime light. Remember he used the 9/11 tragedy as a stepping stone to make people think he was a hero. When in reality he isn’t the crap you wipe off your shoe. He too will reap what he sows.

  12. Shine a light on Rudy and his ties to the Bush administration before 9/11, and Rudy will disappear. Don’t think for a moment the backlash against Muslims in this country wasn’t spearheaded by the Bush administration and the Axis of Evil.

  13. This is Gouliani M.O A blast from the past
    The Mayor also assailed Rudolph W. Giuliani, the probable Republican mayoral candidate, who spoke out against the Mayor at the union rally. Mr. Dinkins said Mr. Giuliani had egged on the protest irresponsibly for political reasons. “He’s clearly, clearly an opportunist,” Mr. Dinkins said. “He’s seizing upon a fragile circumstance in our city for his own political gain.”

    Officers Rally And Dinkins Is Their Target

  14. Seriously dude or dudette? Seriously? Keep up the lies, and it will do you no good. This president has been most fair to everyone. That you can’t see it is pathetic. The slaughter of young Black people in this nation is systemic and horrific. It is something that has to be stopped, and it must begin with each of us including you. Get a major grip on what America is all about because clearly you do NOT understand.

  15. The Daily News described him as “an enigma.” New York magazine called him “unlovable.” The Bratton guys use the word “Nixonian.” In a recent column in the New York Post, Ed Koch described Giuliani as “a ruthless control freak who governs by imposing a state of terror on members of his administration.” Even mild-mannered former mayor David Dinkins denounced Rudy as a classic “type A personality.” From the stories you hear, it would seem that in Rudy’s perfect world he would be totally alone and in charge — no rivals, no threats, no sharing of credit. All opposition reduced to dust.
    “He’s got to dominate. He’s got to take you on, cut your throat. And vilify people,” says Koch, sitting in his law office with his jacket off, surrounded by memorabilia and photos from his many years as mayor. Unlike Rudy, he has a lazy elegance to him, the schmoozy charm of a doting uncle. He and Giuliani became allies after 1989, when both lost to Dinkins — and they had the …

  16. If you cannot get your facts straight, how can anyone believe what you have to say. Kerrville is a Hill Country town on I-10 heading for El Paso in south TX and the shooting happened on Fort Hood Army Base west of Waco in No TX. Odd that you mentioned Kerrvile home of a lot of militia with some idiot offering advice on the net how to build a bomb. Lived in that area much closer to SA. Rudy is a liar and if you cannot admit that, I would question why you are on this site that looks for the truth not spin of Fox News and the GOP.

  17. No one hated any Law Enforcement Officers. The best of them do help keep traffic and civil events peaceful. Yet cigarettes a heavily controlled item should have dealt with by another state Enforcement since it involved taxes. The video clearly shows police trying to subdue a man like a pack of wolves would take down other animals. Those types of tactics are uncalled for. There are all Nationalities in the Streets protesting, believe me, in a city where time is money, people would not be walking in NYC when they have to return to work in a few hours. It is just that important. Stop and Frisk does not help. Those kinds of policies create distrust. No PR Firm can fix what the officers have Done. You all look like Denzel Washington and Richard Gere playing corrupt cops. “The movie, “The Gangs of New York” (copyright) is a true documentation. When I saw the newspaper articles at the end of the film, I broke down.

  18. Did the person writing this article, actually listen to what Giuliani said? He made no mention of blaming obama. As a matter of fact, looks like the author made stuff up to fester Republican hatred.

  19. Giuliani said, “We’ve had four months of propaganda starting with the president that everybody should hate the police. The protests are being embraced, the protests are being encouraged. The protests, even the ones that don’t lead to violence, a lot of them lead to violence, all of them lead to a conclusion: The police are bad, the police are racist. That is completely wrong.”

    Are you really stupid this early in the morning?

  20. Mr. G. is just as evil in every way as Cheney and his cronies this one will say. Sees evil in the good that people do. This minion is the darling of evil in every wicked way.

  21. lol….yes she is that stupid this early in the morning. She just finished her douse of Faux&Friends and 10th cup of “white” coffee. Now she’s about to watch Kirk Cameron redemption of the Wizard of Oz 2014….lol….***SPOILER ALERT-Kirk plays Dorthy.

  22. There are so many people just like Mr G. who thrive on turmoil trying to keep their anger alive to hurt those who are already injured. We all know who and why it is being done.
    Instead of raging on with hate and blame,with the New Year approaching, why not a New Year Resolution, to bring the people and the country together,I can’t help think of “let there be Peace on Earth and let it begin with me.”
    With many religions Celebrating Their Holy Day, this month ,December, lets make an effort to bring “Peace on Earth.”As all religions proclaim.
    Peace be With You

  23. As Rudy becomes less and less relevant, his statements* become crazier and more brazen. The “But, pay attention to MEEEEEEEEE!” is strong with this one.
    .
    .
    *His eyes are becoming crazier as well. He’s pullin’ a Bachman.

  24. A cell phone video, pulled off of Ismaaiyl Brinsley’s Facebook page prior to it being deactivated, showed an interaction between law enforcement and Brinsley taken a little over a year ago.

    In the video an officer claims the dog signaled for drugs on Brinsley’s bag. But there was nothing remarkable that could be pinpointed as the dog even signaling. After the officer claimed the dog signaled, Brinsley refused to let him search his bag.

  25. Guilliani is a Republican. So, he speaks, thinks and acts like Republican. They have harsh views when it comes to race and minorities, you will NEVER hear a sympathetic Noun or Verb part their lips on this issue. What you WILL hear are negative adjectives and vile innuendos. They will always proclaim that the “race” card is played by the other side, YET they are the ones Using it in any way they can—All the time. Then with straight faces deny that fact. Republican minds: STRANGE.

  26. Guiliani is a Republican, so he thinks and speaks like a Republican. What do you expect? Their positioning is to be HARSH and insensitive when it come to playing their “Race card” with no apologies.

  27. Blame whoever you want to but Nadal Hassan did his crazy shooting at Fort Hood near Gatesvile, Texas; not Kerrville, Texas.

  28. And….Kissing Putin’s ring, backside and boots. His “leader” whom he adores over our President. Check out What’s happening now to Putin’s economy because of OUR Leader’s sanctions and friends who are putting the squeeze on Rudy’s pal? What does Rudy have to say now? NOTHING! Not a word. ;)

  29. So tell me how you stop thousands of people all over the country from protesting? Did anybody stop the tearepublicans last year in Washington when they caused the shut down and was marching with their confederate flag and calling the President a muslim. Well, did you? Ever heard of the First Amendment, or does it only apply to a certain population in this country?

  30. Talking about Limbaugh one my sons said that he is a liar that knows that he is laying and by doing that he is making millions. My doubt and question is about how so much dishonesty is possible, in the other side, how so much idiocy and ignorance is possible.

  31. This POS should just fade off into the sunset and shut his lying mouth. He has shitforbrains, and will never be voted for anything. Guess he hasn’t figured it out yet that we just don’t like him or his garbage-filled mouth.

    ..

  32. First, aren’t you writing EXACTLY what you blame Fox news for doing? You said “Fox News has been stirring up racial divides since President Obama took office, but Giuliani’s blatant lies are new low, even for Fox.” You show me once where Fox news has said they are diving the races? No, you took their news and “interpreted” it that way. Can’t Rudy interpret the presidents actions in saying the anti police protests are a good thing as diving the races itself? Clearly, it is. Clearly, the uneducated masses (look at the comments to this thread) are absolutely believing the protests are a call to action against the police. The President could have said, as I am sure he did before, the courts are the correct place to resolve perceived wrongs, not the streets and riots (that clearly happened). When you take mentally unstable and they hear everyone agreeing with their warped understanding of the event, they become heros by taking the matter into their own hands. Words matter.

  33. Never accuse someone of being uneducated when and I quote .” You show me once where Fox news has said they are diving the races”

    Now I know the holes in your sheet are not wide enough to see what they are doing but its not only fox but the republican southern strategy of dividing the races has been in full force since the late 60’s And who was Nixon communication director back then? Roger Ailes. Coincidence? I think not Now that you had your history lesson just go sit down , be quiet and learn something other than the baby jeebus rode with dinosaurs

  34. Relax, people. This assclown is no longer a former mayor. He sold his soul to the Devil, and now he gets paid to say whatever the hell he’s told to say.

    And, of course, now that ol’ Rudy is entirely irrelevant, he gets to keep his ugly mug in front of a TV camera, just like a good little Media Whore.

  35. Conservatives want to know why liberals aren’t protesting the murder of two cops? How about because the police aren’t the victims of a decades (centuries) long terrorism campaign. I feel bad for the two dead men and their families but the police have made it official policy to deny justice to unnecessarily murdered black men. And then they feel like they’re under siege when people protest against them?

  36. The only IDIOT here is the attorney. This guy should burn his license and stop practicing law. Pathetic moron is what he is…

  37. His eyes now have something in common with Michelle Bachmann’s. To paraphrase from the late Robin Williams- “Eyes that are saying “Helter-Skelter! Helter-Skelter!”…

  38. Giuliani said Obama has said “that everybody should hate the police.”

    Throughout all of his comments since August, when the latest unrest over racial disparities in the criminal justice system began, Obama has continuously encouraged working with police to find solutions and make change. He has also repeatedly emphasized the importance of law enforcement in communities of color and the fact that police officers have a dangerous job.

    Giuliani’s claim is an outlandish distortion of what Obama actually said. We rate this Pants on Fire.
