Sarah Palin prefaced her remarks on the controversial Iranian nuclear deal by recognizing those whose sacrifices made Wednesday’s D.C. rally possible.
After thanking veterans for their service, she referenced the increasingly dangerous circumstances in which many of the nation’s law enforcement officers must work:
And you know, since our president won’t say it, since he hasn’t called off the dogs, we’ll say it: Police officers and first responders all across this great land, we got your back. We salute you. Thank you, police officers.
Upset at her characterization, many associates of the Black Lives Matter movement responsible for fomenting violence against cops spoke out against Palin on Twitter. One of the outspoken critics was Shaun King, who portrayed himself as a downtrodden black man until his reports surfaced that he had two white parents.
