Gutfeld: Time for the GOP candidates to call out cop haters

Last weekend, which in cable news was 10 years ago, Black Lives Matter activists chanted, "Pigs in a blanket, fry them like bacon," just hours after the execution of a Texas deputy. The organizer claims they were just being playful.

See, it was all very exciting:

TRAHERN CREWS, BLACK LIVES MATTER ST. PAUL ORGANIZER: It was very exciting. It was so exciting that I think the police, who were along escorting the march or the officer leading the parade, kept talking into his microphone and saying things to the crowd, like stay off the medium, do that. He was laughing and joking with the marchers. So then marchers kind of started chanting that towards him. It was more playful than anything.

CHRIS HAYES, POLITICAL COMMENTATOR: That was in a playful context, that chant?

CREWS: Exactly -- at that particular demonstration, yes.

Way to go after him, Chris. You're real Mike Wallace.

But hey, maybe demanding more dead cops was all in good fun, like if cops chanted, "Let's kill all the activists." Yeah, that would go over well. Chris Hayes would have had a cow, which would have doubled his demo.

This is our world these days, where you can blame a massacre on an inanimate object like a flag, but dismiss a real call for mass murder as a joke. Remember when the media blamed the Giffords attack on a web design?

 Here's an actual chant for murder happening and a week of nothing follows. It's no fluke. Remember this jolly jingle?

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: What do we want?

CROWD: Dead cops!

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: When do we want them?

CROWD: Now!

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: What do we want?

CROWD: Dead cops!

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: When do we want them?

CROWD: Now!

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: What do we want?

CROWD: Dead cops!

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: When do we want them?

CROWD: Now!

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: What do we want?

So I have a solution. If you hate cops so much, why not sign a pledge never to call on them? Put your spine where your mouth is. It's a do not resuscitate order, but for law and order. I'll spring for the printing.

Or maybe create sanctuaries of lawlessness where activists can live without the law. Oh wait, that's Baltimore.

So where are the Republican candidates? Can't someone please speak up? We are witnessing a deliberate well-funded attempt to rupture western society by isolating law enforcement from the people they serve. This is enabled by radicals in our midst.

And once the law goes, society follows. Good luck chanting about anything after that.
