Black Lives Matter has made their war on police — and whites — very clear over the last year. After every police-related shooting involving a black man, protests have erupted around the country. At far too many of these protests, police have been shot and killed in the name of Black Lives Matter.
Somehow, those killings have failed to capture the attention of America — until now. This week’s brutal murder or five cops, and the shooting of twelve, has become impossible to ignore. While the pro-cop majority has remained relatively quiet, preferring to leave justice to the nations’ courts, now many are finally taking a stand.
One such individual is Joe Walsh, who called for a subsequent war on Black Lives Matter. Predictably, many weren’t kind to former congressman, prompting him to delete the tweet.
While Black Lives Matter continues to cheer for the death of our nation’s cops, it is apparently not politically correct to turn against them.
In a tweet subsequently deleted, a former member of the House of Representatives declared war on Black Lives Matter following the shooting of police officers in Dallas.
“3 Dallas Cops killed, 7 wounded. This is now war. Watch out Obama. Watch out black lives matter punks. Real America is coming after you,” wrote Joe Walsh.

After deleting his original message, Walsh urged the “silent majority” to wake up and stand with the police. He also said the original post was not a call for violence against Black Lives Matter.
Walsh later clarified that the tweet was not a call to violence. Still, it is unlikely that that matters. Even though Black Lives Matter has made specific calls to violence, even opposing them politically gets one called a racist bigot.
