5493657754_feedcd9321_zRahm says cops refusing to enforce laws out of fear of being targeted by liberal activists

As “Black Lives Matter” activists target police with lawsuits, angry mobs and even sniper fire, crime rates in major cities are exploding.

And one powerful Democrat is speaking out.

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel is flatly blaming his fellow liberals for the city’s rising body count.

“We have allowed our police department to get fetal and it is having a direct consequence. They have pulled back from the ability to interdict … they don’t want to be a news story themselves, they don’t want their career ended early, and it’s having an impact,” said Emanuel.

“I tried to speak up for the good officers that are doing community policing that make up the men and women of the Chicago Police Department,” he continued.

While most Democrats, like Hillary Clinton, are bowing down to the blood-soaked “Black Lives Matter” movement, as a mayor Emanuel has to deal directly with the rising number of assassinated police officers created by the liberal vanity movement.

“Officers themselves are telling me about how the news over the last 15 months impacted their instincts: Do they stop or do they keep driving? ‘When I stop here, is it going to be my career on the line?’ And that’s an honest conversation,” said Emanuel.

“And all of us who want officers to be pro-active, to be able to do community policing in a pro-active way, have to encourage them, so it’s not their job on the line or that judgment call all the time that if they stop, this could be a career-ender,” he continued.

“Black Lives Matter” activists taking part in assassinations and terrorist plots is now an almost-weekly occurrence.

In September two “Black Lives Matter” activists were convicted of a terrorist plot to blow up St. Louis police stations, kill officers with machine gun fire, and then kill thousands of tourists in a 9-11-inspired bombing of St. Louis’ famous Gateway Arch.

In Kentucky, a state trooper was hunted and killed by a liberal activist.  “Not only was he a Ferguson protester, but he went to Michael Brown’s funeral and burial in a limo the type usually reserved for family or close friends. In that limo he is riding with people from NAN, Al Sharpton’s group,” Weasel Zippers reports.

In December 2014, a man who praised the Ferguson rioters and vowed to kill police officers as an act of social justice executed two New York City police officers.

“I’m Putting Wings On Pigs Today. They Take 1 Of Ours … Let’s Take 2 of Theirs,” he posted to Instagram before finding and killing officers Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos.

His other social media accounts propagated liberal narratives about police violence and the need for rioting.

In March 2015, two Ferguson, Missouri police officers were shot in a sniper attack.  As the officers lay on the ground bleeding, another liberal activist taunted them, screeching “Acknowledgement nine months ago would have kept that from happening.”

Another liberal protester opened fire on Houston-area officers in the name of liberalism.

An illegal alien, not named by law enforcement because he was 16, was arrested after setting a Houston-area deputy constable’s patrol car on fire and pointing a rifle at officers, leading to a 35-minute car chase.

The suspect was seen lighting the car afire in the parking lot of Brazoria County Precinct Four building.

When a deputy approached, the liberal activist pointed a rifle at him.  As the deputy sought cover, the suspect fled.

During the 35-minute chase across two counties, he also attempted to run over two police officers in a funeral procession.

YourHoustonNews reports he told arresting officers the arson attack and attempted vehicular homicide were his “war against the government” because “he was tired of his people getting shot by police and nothing happening, so he came to shoot them.”

Just hours after a Houston-area sheriff’s deputy was brutally executed in an ambush, protesters from the “Black Lives Matter” movement rushed the gate of the Minnesota State Fair, screaming for the deaths of police officers.

“Pigs in a blanket, fry ’em like bacon,” shouted liberals from the St. Paul, Minn. branch of “Black Lives Matter,” just hours after the bloody attack on police.
