Bassem Masri, an infamous Ferguson agitator, has surfaced in New York City taunting police officers who were mourning the loss of their fellow colleagues, Officers Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu.
As reported by Victoria O’Kane at Broadside News:
Officer Lieu was only twenty-eight and had just been married two months earlier. Officer Ramos had just turned forty on December ninth and had a thirteen year old son who must now grow up without a father.
Masri took to the streets of New York City after the horrific execution to goad police officers as he did so many times in Ferguson. In the video, Masri encourages police to stand with “real men” of the “Palestinian resistance.”
Watch the video here, if you can stomach it:
Masri made similar statements while in Ferguson:
Bassem Masri has gotten himself plenty of attention for his activities in Ferguson, Missouri. Back in November, J.E. Dyer at Liberty Unyielding wrote about his antics as a Hamas supporter and police instigator. Dyer also revealed that Masri was tapped by the Department of Justice to act as a consultant on “police reform.”
DOJ has appointed a few of us2reform the police in the entire region that should resonate nationwide thats the director intentions #Ferguson

Why would the taxpayer-funded Department of Justice enlist in the help of a man like Masri for reforming police “nationwide?” The idea of federalizing the police has been getting some play in the media. If progressives are worried about a “police state,” the idea of a government-run police force should send shivers up their spines. Most Americans surely recognize that police officers run to criminals as others run in the opposite direction.
Considering that every single day, police officers deal with the worst among us, it is frankly shocking that there are not more fatalities and violence. After all, on any given day, one can find local news stories about police officers getting injured and even killed by criminals.
