Members of the Congressional Black Caucus, Representatives Jeffries (D-NY), Clarke (D-NY), Lee (D-Texas), and Green (D-Texas) put their hands up in faux outrage over the Ferguson grand jury verdict regarding Michael Brown.
Proving, unfortunately, that these members of the CBC are in fact racists.
Good to know.
From the NYDailyNews.com:
Four members of the Congressional Black Caucus did the “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot” gesture during remarks Monday on the House Floor, to show solidarity with protesters in Ferguson, Mo.
Reps. Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY), Yvette Clarke (D-NY), Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Tex.) and Al Green (D-Tex.), referred to the gesture that has come to symbolize the outrage over the death of Brown, the African American teen shot dead by police officer Darren Wilson in August..
“ ‘Hands up, don’t shoot’ is a rallying cry of people all across America who are fed up with police violence in … communities all across America,” Jeffries said.
The problem? It’s all factual bullshit. Via forensics as well as St Louis County grand jury testimony, at no time did Michael Brown have his hands up and at no time did he say “don’t shoot.”
These people don’t care. They have a racial meme to provide and enhance, and they don’t care about facts. Facts be damned.
Simple as that.
