    VIDEO: The Ferguson “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot” Lie

    VIDEO: The Ferguson “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot” Lie

    The truth matters.
    Listen to this article

    One of the two posts of mine that sent some alumni, faculty, and students at Cornell Law School into a rage regarded the “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot” slogan which has become synonymous with the Black Lives Matter Movement.

    On June 4, 2020, I went through, as I have multiple times since 2014, how that slogan, which originated with the Michael Brown shooting by a policeman in Ferguson, MO, was a fabrication, Reminder: “Hands up, don’t shoot” is a fabricated narrative from the Michael Brown case.

    PragerU just released a video narrated by Larry Elder, going over the same point, titled The Ferguson Lie.

    It’s worth a watch, because the truth matters.

    Start by letting your kids and grandkids hear a view not given to them by social media. Lend a voice in support of what you believe. Remember the duty to protect is an officers oath and moral obligation if not necessarily mandated by law and that officer discretion like any other power can be corrupted. Just don’t paint with too wide a brush. And, seeking truth will always matter.

    Isn’t it strange that the very people accused of racism, show measured restraint when the mobs destroy public and private property, loot, assault the innocent, etc? If indeed we were institutionally racist, if we did not care for black lives, if we valued property more than their lives, would we not end this uprising in a day and night by ending them? If we are truly racist, why has there been no call to mobilize and open fire?

    Could it be the truth is we value life more than things? That we recognize the value of of all lives and living in peace?

    For a few days now I’ve been thinking about that old song “One Tin Soldier” … and wondering whether the angry mob will wake up to the truth before it’s too late.

      If we were ending them it would not be because of race, it would be because of their actions. Those using Molotovs, rioting, assaulting, murdering should be ended, right then.

      Those organizing should prosecuted and jailed under Federal law. Where they can convicted of treason, they should be executed.

      I suspect that there are people outside America playing a role,if that is the case they should be sent a personal Hellfire.

      The gloves must come off.

        Justice is a false god not worthy of worship. The Social Justice Warriors worship that false god to their eternal shame. Don’t make the same mistake.

        Only the Creator of the Universe is worthy of worship.

        How do you end them right then?

        As Gibby stated, my view is a faith-based one; akin to Eph 6 – that our battle is not with flesh and blood, but with the spirit of evil. People have given themselves over to anger and opened the door to all kinds of evil. Accordingly I’ve been praying for those who have given themselves over to destruction to have a Damascus road experience. Saul/Paul had one and it humbled him for life. It’s the only lasting solution for the brute beast in all of us.

    Do a web search on marlene pinnock/Daniel Andrew. Read those headlines. Those headlines were designed to inflame the outrage mob (which succeeded). The officer in this case knew pinnock and had dealt with her before. pinnock made a habit of illegally entering freeways in central LA, putting her life and the lives/safety of many others at risk. pinnock resisted and Andrew used the training he received and took her into custody. Was it ugly? Yes. Legally justified? Yes. But msm “reporters” breathlessly threw “grandma” and every other sympathetic adjective into their outrage headlines in regards to pinnock. They also tagged Andrew with words such as ‘brutal, violent, savagely.’ I assure you, there are some grandmas out there that can put up one heII of a fight. Throw in mental illness, drugs/alcohol, and even a fight with a grandma can turn deadly for everyone in the confrontation. I’m not sure what exactly happened to Daniel Andrew. My suspicion is, he got a “Fight Club” deal from the state, meaning he still receives his monthly pay/benefits and will get a retirement in 20 years without having to show up for work. Or the lump-sum equivalent. That’s irrelevant. The point being: An officer can do everything within the law, the agencies policies and procedure, and STILL have their life ruined. Not just their career, their LIFE. If anyone thinks Darren Wilson will ever have a “normal” life after Ferguson, they are very mistaken. Society is going to get their ‘Atlas Shrugged’ moment regarding law enforcement and it’s not going to be pretty.

    Great video by Larry Elder.

    >> It’s worth a watch, because the truth matters. <<

    It is true. And it's worth a watch. But there is scant evidence that the "truth" matters to the Left.

    If "truth" mattered, Democrats would not be claiming:

    – Police are hunting and shooting black men with impunity.

    – That men who like playing dress up to trick and deceive others about their gender are females.

    – That chopping into tiny pieces developing human beings is "women's health".

    – That words, or even silence, is a form of violence.

    – That females are oppressed and discriminated against.

    – That the modest warming over the past 150 years is "evidence" of a "climate crisis."

    – That the State can force the provision of universal health coverage, cover pre-existent conditions, and healthcare costs will decline.

    Virtually NOTHING Democrats CLAIM they believe is based in truth. I say claim, becuase I"m convinced many of the pseudo "intellectuals" know they are lying in their debates but don't care because they prefer the policy.

    On this blog, you've convincingly covered the lies told about the Breitbart/Shirley Sherrod incident; Oberlin college/bakery; Israel; and so on.

    It doesn't seem to matter to the smug, self righteous Left.

    An update on the death of David Underwood. It now seems likely that he was murdered by Steven Carrillo, a member of a right extremist group, rather than by leftist rioters. While I don’t trust the media, it does not seem as though they are making this up.

      Edit: right wing extremist group

      Mac45 in reply to gibbie. | June 27, 2020 at 12:47 pm

      From charging documents and media reports, it appears that Underwood was most likely shot by Carillo with Justus being the driver of the van. Carillo is affiliated, in some manner, with white extremist groups. However, there has been no claim, by federal authorities, that Underwood was targeted because of his race. At this point, Carillo’s exact motivation is unknown, but is most likely tied to his anti-government philosophy and a desire to foment an armed uprising.

      The interesting thing about Carillo and Justus, is that, while dangerous, they were fundamentally idiots with guns. They did everything wrong, from not realizing that there were surveillance cameras surrounding the courthouse, to failing to dispose of the van used in the attack, to using unsecure communications. Total amateurs. Amateurism is killing this country and the world.

        No. Wicked people are killing this country and the world.

        FOAF in reply to Mac45. | June 27, 2020 at 3:49 pm

        I guess Carrillo is a “white Hispanic”, right?

        While the wicker are, indeed, waging war against this nation, and much of the rest of the world, it is largely incompetent idiots who are actually destroying it. The suicide bombers of the world are stupid. Looters, in today’s surveillance society, are stupid. Drive-by shooters, in any age, are stupid. Actors, who attempt to direct fake racial attacks, are stupid. They are all incompetent amateurs.

        David Underwood was killed by an incompetent Air Force sergeant who was, apparently, trying to make some vague social statement but was so stupid that he left a trail of honking big bread crumbs right ot his own door. This resulted in an LEO being killed and his Carrillo’s accomplice being identified because these two idiots used their own cell phones.

        The Russiagate conspirators used Peter Stzrok and his girlfriend [Boris and Natasha] as couriers to avoid leaving an electronic train concerning their activities. These two complete maladroits then proceed to use cellular phones, belonging to the FBI, to make a real time log of the entire conspiracy, including the actors and their actions.

        And, it only gets worse. The media, medical professionals and politicians are incapable of keeping their stories straight about the COVID virus. They contradict, not only each other, but themselves. And, they make no effort to cover their own a**es.

        People today consider themselves to be freaking geniuses and everyone else to be stupid. A significant portion of the population has no idea what they are doing and are too stupid to even realize that. So they go out and do stupid things and end up creating huge messes that take the competent members of society away from their necessary endeavors and forces them to clean up the messes made by the idiots living among us.

        “they were fundamentally idiots with guns.”

        That sounds like most inner city riffraff, I would add usually stolen.

      As far as I know there is no “Boogaloo movement”. The Boogaloo is something that i>many many people fear is coming, and would like if at all possible to avoid, but are preparing for in case it can’t be. And there are some idiots, such as this one apparently, who want to bring it on, the sooner the better, presumably on the theory that the longer it takes to come the worse it will be. But they do not constitute a movement or a group, and as far as I know there is no movement with that name.

        Mac45 in reply to Milhouse. | June 28, 2020 at 12:33 pm

        The “Boogaloo Movement” is a made-up boogie man for the liberal progressive left. In reality, there is no organized movement, on the right, to start a civil war.

        What happened is the Obama Administration and its draconian racial agenda. In 2008, right-wing racist organizations, such as the KKK and most civil militia, had all but disappeared, in America. They were gone. Barack Obama is elected President and his administration begins to publicly support the minority race baiting groups. By 2010, this begins to generate a spontaneous, disorganized push back. This does include individuals and some very small, fragmented groups. As the various governments continue to favor certain groups’ interests over those of the majority, this spontaneous reaction has increased among individuals.

        Now, unlike AntiFa, BLM, and various Muslim terrorist organizations, which are funded and controlled by an anonymous oligarchy, those people and organizations labelled as part of the Boogaloo movement are almost totally decentralized and not funded by any outside agency. They comprise an organic response to a very real threat But, the left has to project the same organizational construct on an organic response by individual conservatives which exists in liberal groups. The old “vast right-wing conspiracy” which the Clintons used to tout.
