Hillary Clinton finally got around to making a statement concerning the death of Michael Brown and the resulting riots in Ferguson, MO. Her comments amounted to four minutes of the most blatant race-baiting we’ve ever heard from the 2016 presidential hopeful.
“We cannot ignore the inequities that persist in our justice system; inequities that undermine our most deeply held values of fairness and equality. Imagine what we would feel, and what we would do, if white drivers were three times as likely to be searched by police during a traffic stop as black drivers, instead of the other way around. If white offenders received prison sentences ten percent longer than black offenders for the same crimes. If a third of all white men – just look at this room and take one third – went to prison during their lifetime. Imagine that. That is the reality in the lives of so many of our fellow Americans and so many of the communities in which they live.”
As if all that talk of equality and politically correct BS wasn’t enough to make you sick, she went on to say:
“It was 51 years ago today, that Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. called us to live out the true meaning of our creed. To make the dream real for all Americans. And that mission is as fiercely urgent today, as when he stood on the steps of the Lincoln memorial in the hot August sun all those years ago.”
The death of Michael Brown should not be turned into a case for racism, because the cop who should him was not racist. By the same token, it should not be made the poster child for police brutality in America, because evidence has shown that the officer did not use excessive force. In fact, Michael Brown should never have made national headlines. He was a common street thug who was shot after assaulting a police officer. End of story. If it weren’t for the likes of Al Sharpton and other race hustlers, none of us would know the name of this 18-year-old, because if you examine the facts, there is nothing controversial at all about his case. But then we must remind ourselves that we live in Obama’s America.
