What do you think of when you hear the word “justice?”Whatever your answer, there’s a good chance it differs from that of Hillary Clinton surrogate Zack Ford, an editor at ThinkProgress. Ironically, not much thought actually goes on there.
What is justice today to the regressive left? Dead cops, apparently. He sent out the following Tweet – then quickly deleted it following backlash from sane America.
This isn’t anything less than I’d expect from someone who un-ironically refers to himself as a proud Social Justice Warrior, but he did try backtracking. He made the following tweets distancing himself from his own comments.
A lot of people think I support murder now. It's an easy way to avoid acknowledging the systemic injustices that perpetuate these murders.— Zack Ford (@ZackFord) July 17, 2016
You know what else perpetuates these murders? Lying to blacks by telling them that the police are out to get them, when there isn’t a shred of evidence that they’re more likely to be killed by police than whites in similar situations.
I've deleted a tweet that many perceived as condoning violence. To be clear, I want no violence, and I want to undo systemic racism.— Zack Ford (@ZackFord) July 17, 2016
Evidence for systemic racism: coming up next? Apparently not:
If we want violence to end, we must end the systems that perpetuate it. That is my goal and my hope for the world.— Zack Ford (@ZackFord) July 17, 2016
So in summary – killing cops is justice…. but he doesn’t support violence. I give his mental gymnastics performance a 10 out of 10.
