Police officers across America are being marked for death by deranged left-wing activists.

In Baton Rouge and Dallas, black power radicals assassinated eight police officers.

And Barack Obama keeps lying about their motives.

The shooter in Dallas, Micah Johnson, told law enforcement his intention was to kill “white people and police officers.”

Obama refused to acknowledge this fact when asked about the Dallas shooting.

Instead, he played dumb.

CNN reports:

Obama was speaking at the conclusion of a NATO summit, a meeting whose central themes were largely obscured both by the Dallas shootings and reaction to last month’s Brexit vote.

He said the motives of the killer in Dallas were “very hard to untangle” but called the shooter “demented” and downplayed the potential political motivations he may have carried. The shooter allegedly voiced a desire to “kill white people” ahead of the attack, authorities have said.

“I think the danger is that we somehow suggest that the act of a troubled individual speaks to some larger political statement across the country. It doesn’t,” Obama said.

Many Americans were left speechless when Obama claimed the killer’s motives were “hard to untangle” after the assassin clearly stated why he opened fire on police.

The same scenario played out after the murder of three police officers in Baton Rouge.

The killer, Gavin Long, lured police into an ambush with a phony 911 call.

He is a former Nation of Islam member who posted videos to his YouTube channel where he hurled racial slurs at white people.

Once again, Obama claimed not to understand the motive of the killer.

According to the White House transcript:

As of right now, we don’t know the motive of the killer.  We don’t know whether the killer set out to target police officers, or whether he gunned them down as they responded to a call.  Regardless of motive, the death of these three brave officers underscores the danger that police across the country confront every single day.  And we as a nation have to be loud and clear that nothing justifies violence against law enforcement.  Attacks on police are an attack on all of us and the rule of law that makes society possible.

Both killers were motivated by black power sentiments.

And Obama has come under increasing scrutiny for his embrace of the Black Lives Matter movement.

The racially charged group has seen multiple instances where its supporters openly called for the murder of police.

But rather than repudiate the group and shunt them off to the margins of American politics, Obama has invited their leaders to the White House.

Some critics believe this explains why Obama claims he doesn’t understand the motivations behind the killings of police officers in Louisiana and Texas.

If Obama were forced to confront the ideology behind the slaughter, it would lead to Obama being made to accept responsibility for creating a climate of hatred by supporting Black Lives Matter.

Do you think Obama should repudiate Black Lives Matter?
