Ferguson police officer shot; Did Obama agitate right before shooting? (Yes)!/lifebythecreek/status/516083328852959232

What coincidence? You decide. But first a little background.

MORE: #Ferguson police are asking the crowd to leave crime scene, but several dozen stay

The anarchy we see in Ferguson MO brought to you by Democrats, Gov Nixon, Eric Holder DOJ and President Obama.

— Melody (@prfekrdumbrella) September 28, 2014

Yep. As Twitchy readers know, a Ferguson, Mo., police officer was shot in Dellwood, Mo., Saturday night. Ferguson agitators descended on that scene as well; a scene that was being called a “war zone.”

And look at what happened earlier that night.

Earlier, Obama made comment that likely agitated the mobs in Ferguson. Tonight, a police officer was shot in Ferguson. Obama's America.

Yes. Yes he did.

Obama: Ferguson shooting revealed "gulf of mistrust" of police

MT @PDPJ: I'm hearing distant gun shots, scanner also reporting gun fire #Ferguson

Unbelievable, yet totally believable. As Twitchy reported, President Obama addressed the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation Saturday. And this happened:

Citing Ferguson, MO., Pres Obama says in too many communities, “a gulf of mistrust exists between local residents and law enforcement."

Pres Obama said he wouldn't comment on the investigation of the Michael Brown shooting in Ferguson, but noted his family in the audience.

— Mark Knoller (@markknoller) September 28, 2014

But no “comment.” Except for that. And, you know, all this:

Pres Obama said too many young men of color feel "judged by stereotypes that fuel fear and resentment and hopelessness."

— Mark Knoller (@markknoller) September 28, 2014

Pres Obama cites statistics that show "significant racial disparities" in the treatment of minorities by police.

— Mark Knoller (@markknoller) September 28, 2014

Pres Obama calls racial inequities part of the "unfinished work…we gonna have to fight for it, stand up for it and have to vote for it.“

— Mark Knoller (@markknoller) September 28, 2014

Why on earth would the president seek to agitate further?

And with his eye on the midterm elections, Pres Obama urges Congressional Black Caucus audience to help get out the vote.

— Mark Knoller (@markknoller) September 28, 2014

Oh, well. Votes.

These citizens are outraged.

As Obama continues to stoke racial tensions in Ferguson, police officer shot. Meanwhile, not a peep about woman beheaded in OK by Islamist.

Police: Ferguson officer shot; 2 suspects wanted **Nothing to see, folks, Obama profiled the police quite sufficiently, it is their fault.

— Jane McClain (@PlainJaneinCA) September 28, 2014


And in an exit nutshell:

Heck of a job with conciliation for Ferguson, Obama. Heck of a job.

Obama’s post-racial America. And his dangerous incompetence on display once again.
