In the aftermath of the mass shooting of a dozen police officers in Dallas this week, some conservatives rushed to lay blame for the incident at the feet of the Obama administration.
Former Republican congressman Joe Walsh said on Twitter that "Obama's words & [Black Lives Matter]'s deeds have gotten cops killed." Rep. Roger Williams (R-Tex.) said, "the spread of misinformation and constant instigation by prominent leaders, including our president" contributed to the killings. Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) said the shooting had "roots" in the "anti-white/cop events illuminated by Obama."
These statements are part of a broader narrative of a "war on cops" carried out by the Obama administration and/or the Black Lives Matter movement, depending on whom you ask. It's certainly true that some shooters of police, such as the Dallas attacker, appear to be motivated by a hatred of white police officers or a twisted urge to seek revenge for police shootings of black Americans. But the simplistic and inflammatory notion of a "war on cops" is completely undercut by one fundamental data point: Intentional attacks on police officers are at historically low levels under President Obama.

The media lapdogs play with statistics to get the result they are looking for, the Obama Admin are masters at manipulating stats.... They piss on you and tell you its just rain....
What the hell is this clown smoking? Doesn’t he watch the news? Oops. He is the news. That explains it. He’s got a president to sell.
The media are going to lose this battle with these assassinations. Their rhetoric and racism accepted against whites is becoming more intolerable with more and more.
There's that word again. The "media" loves it.
This is pure agitprop. How absurd and disturbing they would publish such tripe. Be ye not deceived!
Is that the Posts attempt at comedy?
LOL. And health insurance premiums are going down too, right?
You got that right. It will all help to get Mr. Trump elected.
WAPO doesn’t want people to know about the annual FBI report LEOKA.
What is not tracked is how many times somebody takes a shot at police, an attempted murder every time.
Safer my posterior. Tell that to the guys and gals who stood the line on West Florissant (was there a couple nights myself). Or Baltimore, or Baton Rouge, Minneapolis.
The police are just becoming more risk adverse, that all.
Also, there is higher employment, salaries are 90% higher, everyone is driving Escalades, gas is $0.35 per gallon, there is no crime at all in any city, even the BIG ones, kids are eating great meals in school, there is free Obamacare, free Obamaphones...
Here’s another one:
U.S. is gaining, not losing, factory jobs
Paging Orwell, George Orwell!
We live in a Utopia.
This is obvious to anyone who is not a knuck-dragging Republican climate-change denier.
If the media do manage, in concert with the assclown in our White House, manage to incite a civil war, I sincerely hope that they are the first casualties.
