Two Los Angeles police officers were shot by a coward as they sat in their car.
The horrific incident could’ve been a unifying moment for the country, but sadly it wasn’t.
And one tweet about the ambush will make your blood run cold.
A 31-year-old mother and a 24-year-old rookie are in stable condition after being shot at close range by an at-large shooter.
The attack is a disturbing escalation in the war on cops that’s being waged by the Democrats and their media allies.
When that hateful rhetoric is repeated over and over, the consequence is that large numbers of people begin to believe it even when the statistics do not back it up.
The police hatred has gotten so bad, gang members in Chicago declared they would shoot officers on sight if they have the chance.
And now a would-be assassin nearly killed two police officers in a parked car.
But even worse, the left is excusing the behavior.
A far-left think tank called the Gravel Institute even tweeted that police officers’ lives don’t matter.

The Gravel Institute is purportedly a progressive think tank that’s attempting to counter the immense success of PragerU, which posts five-minute educational videos on YouTube.
Tweeting that the lives of cops who were nearly executed don’t matter is not a winning strategy for changing minds.
This anti-police ethos is at the core of the left.
They’ve been winning elections for years by scapegoating the cops, and they’re trying to do it right now.
Both Joe Biden and Kamala Harris said they want to see the police officer in the Jacob Blake shooting charged.
The left has elevated criminals into martyrs so long as they fight the police, no matter how guilty they are.
Blake is an alleged rapist who violated a restraining order and resisted arrest, but Harris told Blake that she was “proud of him.”
What Harris was proud of is anyone’s guess.
“Blue Lives Matter” has become a four-letter word to the left.
NBA player James Harden accidentally wore a Blue Lives Matter mask before a basketball game, and he was hit with a wave of criticism.
Democrats have to own their anti-police rhetoric because they’ve been spouting it for years, and when they have an opportunity to condemn violence against the police, they don’t do it.
With riots roiling across the country, Biden, Harris, and the Democrats cannot be trusted to restore order to the country.
