The White House is evidently still gathering its thought on the ambush in Baton Rouge this morning, which claimed the lives of at least three police officers. (Either that or the sun is shining in the D.C. area, and Barack Obama isn’t going to miss an opportunity for another round of golf.)

If cynicism seems out of place at this early stage of another senseless tragedy, it may seem less so when read the reaction of some Americans to this morning’s news on Twitter, courtesy of Infowars’s Paul Joseph Watson:

I have no doubt that more messages like these are forming in demented craniums everywhere. The hashtag #BatonRouge is trending big right now.

In the meantime, when Obama does get around to expressing his condolences to the families of the slain officers, here’s hoping he can avoid politicizing the incident. His kneejerk predilection for bringing race into any clash between police and the black community is beyond a doubt a mitigating factor in the many threats that have made on cops’s lives and — beginning with Dallas — the realization of such threats.
