At least three police officers were shot in Baton Rouge on Sunday. The event came a week after the Dallas attack that left five officers dead and a dozen others wounded as protests (launched by the group called “Black Lives Matter“) over the deaths of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile have turned into the violence.

3 are believed to be dead following a shooting in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. The Mayor of East Baton Rouge has said that this is an active shooter situatio. The officials are are investigating the motive behind the attack.

“Right now, we are trying to get our arms around everything,” said Holden.

Reports say that the attacker is killed in a gunfight with police. 4 policemen are in critical situation.

We remember the FBI issued a Situational Information Report (SIR) warning cops of a credible threat of a “police purge” in Baton Rouge. The advisory was dated for July 8 to 10. However, additional warnings were issued by the FBI later.

The situation has begun to deteriorate as a group called “New Black Panther Party” has “supported” the Black Lives Matter protests with weapons in tow. The New Black Panther Party is identified by the Southern Poverty Law Center as a black Nationalist hate group.

Lincoln should have shipped the blacks back to their countries after they were freed.

Real Anti-Racist Action

“I will say then that I am not, nor ever have been in favor of bringing about in anyway the social and political equality of the white and black races – that I am not nor ever have been in favor of making voters or jurors of negroes, nor of qualifying them to hold office, nor to intermarry with white people; and I will say in addition to this that there is a physical difference between the white and black races which I believe will forever forbid the two races living together on terms of social and political equality. And inasmuch as they cannot so live, while they do remain together there must be the position of superior and inferior, and I as much as any other man am in favor of having the superior position assigned to the white race. I say upon this occasion I do not perceive that because the white man is to have the superior position the negro should be denied everything.”
