In the summer of 2014, Michael Brown was shot and killed by police officer Darren Wilson in Ferguson, Missouri. It set off days of intense protests. It was one of the incidents that set off the Black Lives Matter movement and it spawned the “hands up, don’t shoot” lie. Brown wasn’t murdered. It was a clean police-involved shooting.
Federal investigators noted that the evidence analyzed initially did not differ when they re-reviewed everything concerning whether to file civil rights charges. In other words, the physical evidence backed up the story that Brown had reached for Wilson’s gun and fought with the former law enforcement officer. Attorney General Eric Holder cleared Wilson. The Obama DOJ cleared Wilson. Wilson did not murder Brown, which is why Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s tweet about this incident got tomahawk chopped. Warren tweeted on the five-year anniversary of this incident.
Fox News’ Brit Hume torched the Massachusetts liberal tweeting, “I don’t know which is worse: that she still believes this, or that she knows it’s false and says it anyway.”
Both Kamala Harris and Elizabeth Warren said on Twitter Friday that Michael Brown was “murdered” by a “white” policeman in Ferguson, Mo. This is an absolute whopper and obviously does nothing to calm racial tension in this country. Yet it’s gotten almost no coverage.— Brit Hume (@brithume) August 11, 2019
The Obama/DOJ cleared this officer, based on the actual evidence. This is anti-empiricism signaling. Unsurprising. https://t.co/MKL1kBWF8x— Guy Benson (@guypbenson) August 9, 2019
Also, it once again exposes how the Left’s view on gun control just doesn’t make sense. Forget the complete ignorance of current gun laws and the lexicon involved, these people only trust law enforcement and the military to carry and own firearms, but all cops are racists executing a covert genocide on people of color. Does anyone see a problem with that?
The Federalist’s Sean Davis responded to Warren’s tweet concerning this fact. Yet, it does seem fitting for the far Left, which adheres to an authoritarian ethos, to support only those institutions which would be tasked with brutally enforcing and maintaining that regime. Still, Warren is a smart woman. This is pandering of the worst kind, though one that shows she’s fully aware that outside of the very white Boston suburbs, she’s an unknown factor. And to win the Democratic nomination this year, you’re going to need the support of black voters. What’s offensive is that they think black voters are this dumb. Then again, Warren thought all of us were dumb when she, a white woman, tried to pass off that she was Cherokee. She’s not. She’s the original Rachel Dolezal.
5 years ago Michael Brown was murdered by a white police officer in Ferguson, Missouri. Michael was unarmed yet he was shot 6 times. I stand with activists and organizers who continue the fight for justice for Michael. We must confront systemic racism and police violence head on.— Elizabeth Warren (@ewarren) August 9, 2019
