A good start to grasping this danger is Mark Tapson’s short interview here with Heather Mac Donald about her new book The War on Cops: How the New Attack on Law and Order Makes Everyone Less Safe !
Some excerpts from the interview—
“MT: What were your thoughts upon hearing of last week’s Dallas shooting in progress, when police were dying and being wounded even as they tried to protect the demonstrators who had gathered there to protest their supposed racial bias?
HM: I was overcome by acute fear for this country. The elite establishment has been playing with fire in stoking the Black Lives Matter hatred of the police, and that fire may now be raging out of control.”

“MT: This is a little off-topic from your book, but you’ve written about anti-terrorism before – in light of the proliferating Islamic attacks on American soil, are our counterterrorism efforts being hindered in much the same way as our law enforcement is with crime?
HM: Our unwillingness to speak the truth about Islamic terrorism is if anything more perverse than our unwillingness to recognize the reality of black crime. The elites mostly just ignore black crime. In the case of Islamic terrorism, however, they affirmatively rebrand it as, for example, an eruption of Republican homophobia or opposition to transgender bathroom use, as we saw in the recent Orlando attacks.” (Highlighting Forum’s throughout.)
Few GOP politicians are likely to read Mac Donald’s War on Cops on their own — so patriots should get their own copy and start schooling their elected officials about this grave peril! Their local central committees might be a good place to begin this discussion.
