If you had the intestinal fortitude to watch some of the opening night speeches for the Democrat National Convention in Philly, you might have found it rather odd to see that the speaker lineup included people came to our country illegally. Yes, those who proudly flouted our nation’s rule of law to settle here illegally are some of the DNC’s poster children, showcasing what the party represents.
But wait, there’s more. Tonight’s lineup will feature the mother of Michael Brown — the “gentle giant” who was cruelly shot and killed by a racist white police officer after he surrendered and pleaded “hands up, don’t shoot.” Except that it didn’t actually happen that way, as we all know by now — thought that hasn’t stopped the Dems from perpetuating Brown’s martyrdom, along with using his mother as a prop to stir up emotion.
Never mind that Brown’s mother herself was apparently was involved in a street brawl in 2014 over the rights to T-shirt sales. Brown’s mother Leslie McSpadden reportedly assaulted and robbed grandmother Pearlie Gordon of $1,400.
Responding to the Dems’ convention display, Sheriff David Clarke described what the party is up to in just two perfect words, saying the party appears to be about “embracing criminality.”
Via The Blaze:
After seeing New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker’s “angry speech,” Milwaukee Sheriff David Clarke said Monday night that the ongoing Democratic National Convention “seems to be about embracing criminality.”Clarke’s comments were in reference to the fact that Tuesday night’s event will host a “Mothers of the Movement” segment, which features speeches from several mothers of unarmed black men who died in officer-related shootings.
“Donald Trump is the law and order candidate, and this DNC seems to be about embracing criminality and criminal behavior, trying to mainstream criminal behavior, hold these individuals up as if they’re martyrs of the civil rights movement,” Clarke, who at the Republican National Convention declared, “Blue lives matter,” told Fox News host Megyn Kelly.Of course, we all know by now that Michael Brown, who continues to be held up as a martyr by Dems, died in Ferguson, Missouri in 2014 as a result of his own aggression toward police officer Darren Wilson, according to none other than Obama’s own Justice Department.
However, Clarke took issue with all the mothers, asserting all those shot by police were resisting arrest. The sheriff also found it troubling that none of the fathers of these black men were speaking.
“When there are no fathers around to shape the behavior of young boys growing up, they grow up to be unmanageable misfits that the police then have to deal with aggressively,” he told Kelly.
Watch Clarke’s remarks below:
As far as I know, there is nothing on this week’s DNC lineup to address the root issues of some of the major challenges facing blacks in America today, such as the decimation of the black family, as Sheriff Clarke points out. Nothing on black-on-black violence raging out of control, either.
Of course, actually highlighting some of these root issues would require Democrats take responsibility for their own policies which have played an instrumental role. Much better for them to distract with phony narratives instead.
