Congressman: Police Appreciation Lights Refused By White House

WASHINGTON — The White House refused a call by a Republican congressman to light the White House blue Monday for National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day (L.E.A.D.).

“Obama has not agreed to do so, but has displayed lights at the White House for other groups in the past, including the LGBT community,” a spokeswoman from Republican Washington Rep. Dave Reichert’s office told The Daily Caller Sunday night.

President Obama previously refused to light up the White House with blue lights in support of the fallen officers following an ambush on law enforcement in Dallas last July.

“The president has chosen to acknowledge this loss and pay tribute to these heroes in a variety of other ways, including: ordering flags lowered to half staff, traveling to Dallas to speak at the memorial service and spending a substantial amount of time after the service visiting with the families of those who were lost,” White House spokesman Josh Earnest said at the time.

    Obama’s offensive, politically partisan instruction to light up the Whitehouse in rainbow colours, showed his support for perversion. And why should that be surprising, seeing as how his administration has been actively exporting and promoting it since 2011 ;

    And after this, is there any doubt that he is a muslim, too….. ?

    Had they only wished to use pink lights instead of blue….
    Obama could just as easily pay tribute to LGBT events, but if he ever failed to light up the pink lights, there would be hell to pay. After all, he can “understand” how the protesters feel, since so many killed “could be his son”.

    Mr. Trump should order such to happen retro on his first day in office and declare once again that he is a true friend indeed of law enforcement! The truth is barry was just honest to his real heart he is not a friend of the law and law enforcement! Probably one of his first honest acts while serving as prez.!

    So his rainbow agenda is more important to him than our fallen heroes in blue – not surprising, as he fomented much of the hatred against the police officers and his words were screamed loudly by the msm. Now, again, you see why America rejected your third term in the person of hrc, mr. o. Good riddance.

    Once again we see why the Democrats lost the White House. Many Americans were turned off to see the rainbow colored White House. Those same Americans don’t recall seeing the White House awash in colors celebrating the things valued by most Americans.

    Barack Hussein Obama has a different set of values from those of most Americans. On election days we voted for the candidate that would be most likely to support our values.
