The Blame Obama Syndrome has now spilled into the Dallas, Texas shooting and like clockwork, conservative loud mouths are blaming the president for the repugnant act of violence against the Dallas Police Department. Fox News and other media outlets are pushing the narrative that Black people are uncontrollable and the dumb-downed, uninformed mainstream media is a co-conspirator of this false narrative. These talking heads were silent when Dylann Roof murdered nine Black Christians in  South Carolina church a year ago or when Timothy McVeigh and his partner killed 160 people in the Oklahoma City bombing, let’s not forget Sandy Hook. That was Obama’s fault, too, huh?
