Former Congressman Joe Walsh reacted to early reports of cops killed in Dallas with a tweet threatening President Obama and Black Lives Matter.
In the now-deleted tweet, Walsh wrote: “This is now war. Watch out Obama. Watch out black lives matter punks. Real America is coming after you.”
In other tweets, Walsh called BLM a “hate group” and he called on Americans to stand up to “Cop haters – from Obama to the thugs on the street.”
Television personality Montel Williams was quick to lash out at Walsh on Twitter.com.
5 officers, including a transit officer, were confirmed dead. 7 others were wounded in last night’s shootings.
3 suspects are in custody. A 4th suspect died when a police robot detonated a bomb near him.
President Obama, speaking at a NATO meeting in Warsaw, Poland, described the terrorist attack as a “vicious, calculated and despicable attack on law enforcement.”.
Obama added: “There is no possible justification for these kinds of attacks or any violence against law enforcement.”
