New England Police Officers Union Boycotts Obama’s Boston Labor Day Speech

Harris County Sheriff Deputy and Killer ABC13
Last weekend Shannon J. Miles,30, was arrested for shooting Texas Sheriff’s Deputy Darren Goforth execution style in the back of the head while he was pumping gas.

This weekend the New England Police Benevolent Association boycotted Barack Obama’s Labor Day speech in Boston today. The Boston police are upset over the epidemic of lawless people trying to kill police officers across the country.
The Boston Herald reported, via American Thinker:

Jerry Flynn, a Lowell cop on leave while serving as executive director of the New England Police Benevolent Association, said his organization’s executive board has chosen to boycott President Obama’s Labor Day breakfast address in Boston today to make a statement about violence against police:

“Our members are enraged at his lack of support of law enforcement. It’s clear that he has an agenda, and unfortunately the police are not part of his agenda.

Let’s face it, (there have been) eight people killed in a nine-day period, eight police officers, and his silence up until recently has been deafening. And the real sad part of this — and when I went to the White House in the first term with (Vice President) Joe Biden — he said to me that he would be the voice of law enforcement. Well, as much as I love and adore Joe, his voice has been silent as well. So it’s not an Obama problem, it’s an administration problem.

This is a horror show, this is an epidemic of lawless people trying to kill police officers for no apparent reasons. Case in point is the lieutenant who was pumping gas in Houston. Over 7,000 people were at that church, and where was he (Obama)? Why wasn’t he there instead of a unity breakfast?”

Referring to the looting and destruction in Ferguson, Mo., following the shooting of Michael Brown, Flynn continued:

“I mean, he had the opportunity to do things then and he didn’t, and all he’s done is escalated and allowed these people that are hellbent on causing problems to do so. We can’t continue to have people who have no intention to do anything but to be disruptive. These aren’t good citizens. These are thugs who go out and try to cause problems.

    Obama will always choose pandering to his base over doing the RIGHT THING…!

  • blame_canada929

    Good for them! While most people would attend out of respect, The police have some solid legs to stand on as Big “o” hasnt earned any at all. I couldnt bring myself to respect a liar and a thief—-Exactly the two types of people I really have no use for!

  • blame_canada929

    For some strange reason, I doubt that many if any at all, Law Enforcement officers constitute Big”o”s base? I think he and his administration have had a big hand in the war on cops we see today!

  • nodhimmi

    Ha, go too it men in blue! Boston is the butt of well deserved jokes, but unlike the people.s republic of Cambridge, even our police have standards!! So proud of my city right now, a collective up yours to the most arrogant King alive!

  • Hillary For Prison

    Labor Day is nothing special. It is a day the unions celebrate their communist collective agenda. I am glad to see the police finally are seeing that DemokRATs are not your friends.

  • blame_canada929

    Eastie here ( I grew up there)–Cambridge is virtually useless unless you need something from the Coop. The Boston Police have always been something else, but theyre still cops nonetheless and I wholeheartedly support them regardless of a few bad apples!

  • Mark

    It is the only type Obama has any use for.

  • nodhimmi

    Thanks their contempt is so well deserved !

  • American Patriot

    I know we’ve had this discussion before on this site, but I’m going to chime in again. Most police officers, probably the majority, are conservative, and many don’t have any union representation. They have police associations, to which they pay dues. Those dues get them legal representation during disciplinary hearings and law suits. As far as who they vote for, those guys and gals vote conservatively.

    Unfortunately, east coast police departments have labor union representation, and most of those officers frequently vote democrat. Those departments are an anomaly in law enforcement.

    While the symbolism in Boston is appreciated by other cops, it’s not sincere because those guys in the east will vote D during the next election cycle. The sooner cops renounce their union ties, the better law enforcement will be!

    And how many democrats has this union donated money too? I call “dog and pony show” here. Let me know when police unions abandon their decades old non stop support for the democrats that BUILT THIS. And I don’t mean media hype like this, I mean real opposition at the ballot box.
    I point this out not to snap on the cops. I believe their outrage is real. What I am getting at is that their own dollars and their own votes got them this. They don’t get to just pretend like they are somehow absolved from the consequences of their own choices.
    Shame on them if they think that their union leadership can do this and then turn around and support more democrats in coming elections. Watch, they will, just as they have before. I will be happy to eat my words come endorsement time. I predict that these police unions will indeed support democrats or decide to “not endorse”. Not unlike the blacklivesmatter folks, the police unions, unions in government in general, want to have their cake and eat it too. I suspect I wont be eating any words on this point.

    When I see police unions across the country openly slamming the democrat and democrat lite politicians, when I see them advocating for the removal from office all those who have trashed their honorable profession, I will buy stock in actions like this one. And not until. I think it pretty safe to say, Il will be waiting a while. Gotta get those contracts, those union contracts, stuffed with goodies – and that Trumps all…….

  • LouAnnWatson

    it took a while, but i think the moderate democrat fog is lifting. president disaster has sown and now the party is about to reap…

    My hat’s off to the men (& women) in blue. It’s about time somebody stood up to this arrogant narcissist. Jan Brewer had the right idea. He hates the police and the military equally.

  • Linda

    @Jerry Flynn:

    You proclaim: “As much as I love and adore Joe…he’s been silent, too.” Tell you what, Jerry: Democrats are the definition of hypocrisy and phoniness. They’re about money and power. They don’t really care about a single human being other than themselves.

    Joe Biden is no more sincere than his purple-lipped boss, who lies as smoothly as his boss, Lucifer. What in God’s name is there to “love and adore” about Joe Biden?

    As much as so many Americans support law enforcement, the police unions have made their own bed, and tragically are having to sleep in it.

  • Dave M.

    Eff that! Those cops voted for him and this country gets what it deserves for it. I didn’t vote for this Muslim sympathizer, THEY DID! Enjoy it boys in blue, all those cop unions saying how wonderful and beautiful and blissful it will be to have a guy with a Muslim middle name become our president. What a joke. Have fun ya still have a little over a year left of your boy Obama running the country into the ground. Thanks by the way!

  • pajamakat

    I’m sure many of them will still vote for shillary.

    Remember in November! VOTE OUT ALL DINO & RINO professional career politicians.

  • test4echo

    Lawless democrats. From the president to the criminals executing police officers. In spite of that, Flynn still loves and adores ” the voice of law enforcement”, you know, Joe Biden.

  • Patty

    For those who think Police vote democrat, think again. For those who think officers are going to take things lightly, think again.

    These are the tough guys and gals who take an oath and they don’t bend it or forget it. They take their job seriously and Obama hasn’t. While he should be standing tall for every officer he goes on a vacation, he brings racism into every thing, he goes to Alaska promoting Climate Change, he continues to destroy the morale of every officer and every officer WILL NEVER FORGET.

    Thank God there are real men and women in the Police Force and Military who take their OATH seriously.

    God Bless each and everyone of YOU. Shake the hand of one of the honorable and thank them.

  • wasitsomethingisaid

    Obama,his administration,and the DNC hate law enforcement and have been instigating a war against them for years.It’s about time the police took notice.

  • tommy mc donnell

    I think the “war on cops” is the work of the 1960s radicals in his administration. it if the same thing they did in the 1960s with their “kill the pigs” mantra.

  • rabidfox2

    Also add Odumber’s dream of a national police force (shudder!) Think of how he encouraged the IRS and image his guiding hand behind police policies.

  • cavt

    Good for them. Can’t wait to see all the msm coverage on this— what, no coverage—oh well–

  • I am in Boston today and had no idea Barry Hussein was in town until I read The Gateway Pundit! There’s so much to do around here and of course I was out having fun, and not watching TV.

    #BlackLivesMatter: The communist origin of the ‘pigs in a blanket’ chant

    While the mainstream media is not interested in making the clear connection to #BlackLivesMatter “activists” and the rampant anti-police sentiment that prompted Las Vegas Undersheriff Kevin McMahill to lament “the narrative of violence against police across the country” after two police officers were shot while sitting at a red light over the weekend; or the senseless shooting death of Deputy Darren H. Goforth, who appears to have been targeted “because he wore a uniform,” the link is obvious to anyone paying attention to the communist and radical Islamist driven movement.

    While the “pigs in a blanket” chant shouted recently by #BlackLivesMatter “activists” has prompted media attention, reports have been circulating for months on these communist-driven chants provided to the useful idiots that bellow them out here and here.

    As reported previously at Broadside News, a “chant sheet” handed out by the “Progressive Labor Party (PLP),” a communist organization based in the United States that seeks to “destroy capitalism and the dictatorship of the capitalist class” according to their website, featured disturbing chants for anti-police activists.

  • Patty

    Some of the chants include such violence-provoking phrases as:

    Racist cops, you can’t hide, We charge you with genocide

    White cop, black cop, all the same, Racist terror is the name of their game!

    Hey cops you better start shaking, Cause today’s pigs is tomorrow’s bacon!

    NYPD, KKK How many kids did you kill today?

    As reported at, the PLP was also one of the many communist and radical Islamist groups that incited riots in Ferguson in August 2014 and again in November.

  • Darkheart11

  • H. Mueller

    This president has, since his first days in office, been very clear in his dislike, even hatred of police officers. He has continually talked badly of them, has made inaccurate, inflammatory comments, has fanned the fires of division and animosity, aiming at police officers across the nation. He ignores tragic murders of police officers, while painting criminals and thugs as heroes and innocent victims of the police. He is the worst of the worst in all respects.

    These police officers are the people who keep the barbarians outside the gates and they certainly do not deserve that which this “president” gives them. When he shows his disdain for law enforcement, he is showing his disdain for the citizens of this country.

    Of course there would be a few bad officers, it would be a small fraction of 1 percent of them, many digits after the decimal point. There are probably less “bad” police officers than “bad” members of any other profession. They deserve our unbridled support. I shudder at what further damage this “president” might do in the remaining 15 months of his occupation of the White House.

  • H. Mueller

    He is the worst of the worst, a destroyer of nations.

    Cambridge, Somerville, Chelsea, Orleans, Northampton and Springfield… all sanctuary cities.

    did the cops give a schit about that in tha past or are they upset that one of their “own” was killed now instead of a regular citizen.

    He and Jarrett must be having after hour wine parties and giggling late into the night for all the damage done. She was overheard not so long ago, they have a whole lot more to do to us.
    Too bad those pussies we elected into office cannot stand up for their country and stop this insanity.

  • The Gentle Grizzly

    Change “regular citizen” to “mere civilian”, or “walking revenue source”.

    But, in defense of the police, I don’t think the cop in the patrol car, or the Sergeant on the desk are in favor of the sanctuary city concept. Their union may be, but they likely are not.
