With all the news about fake news in the – err, news – lately Sheriff David Clarke has one fake news story he would like to discuss. Remember “Hands up, Don’t Shoot?” We remember (see Dear Liberal Lynch Mob: Mike Brown, ClockBoy, Cecil The Lion, You’re ALWAYS Wrong and Ferguson To Create Permanent Memorial Honoring Criminal, Michael Brown. Wow).
And so does our favorite sheriff…
“It changed America. This anti-police sentiment rose out of this. What I call the bastard child of ‘Hands Up, Don’t Shoot!’ ‘Black Lives Matter’ grew out of this thing. It swept the country.”
“We have dead cops because of that ‘Hands Up, Don’t Shoot!’ lie…people who were trying to avenge for the life of Mike Brown, who was a thug.”
Someone had to say it. We’re just happy that it was Sheriff Clarke. We’re always happy when Sheriff Clarke says words.
