They are all grabbing at their own “Ferguson Moment” in hopes of redeeming themselves for not condemning the police officer in the Missouri case.
Cowering in fear of being called a racist, a number of so-called conservatives have abandoned logic to beat their breasts over the death of Eric Garner. Without hearing a single word of testimony and basing their judgment on a two minute video, these people KNOW what happened.
Here are facts these cowards have been pleased to disregard.
Cops don’t prowl our streets looking for someone to murder.
Eric Garner made a conscious decision to raise his 32nd arrest from a misdemeanor into a challenge of society’s right to enforce our laws. Garner consciously resisted arrest in the face of overwhelming odds and his heart and asthma conditions.
Garner had no job; he supported a wife and six children by being a career criminal.
Gotnews.com has uncovered a connection between Garner and a smuggling operation run by organized crime.
No one has explained how someone who is being choked can say “I can’t breathe” loud enough to be recorded from ten feet away. Saying ‘” can’t breathe” isn’t possible for someone who is not breathing.
Chokeholds kill or render people unconscious immediately. Chokeholds don’t kill people an hour later. Garner’s hyoid and windpipe were intact; Garner did not die from a chokehold no matter how many times the media repeats that lie.
“Racism” cannot be proved here because it does not exist. The cop’s bosses, the precinct commander, and supervising female sergeant are black. The cops were responding to their orders and a complaint about Garner from a minority shop owner. Garner’s own daughter said this was not about race. Al Sharpton is holding his demonstrations in Manhattan to obfuscate these facts because they don’t “fit.”
If the precinct commander and sergeant were white males, we would know their names and where they live; and they would have to enter and leave their workplace under heavy security.
Saying Garner died “for selling loose cigarettes” is a cynical lie. Those who actually know what they are talking about understand that Garner was killed by his own obese lifestyle and a conscious choice to fight when he could have submitted and lived to commit more crimes.
The following cowardly conservatives are using the Garner case to suck up to the liberal media, grab their own “Ferguson Moment,” and be absolved from the “guilt” the Left insists they should feel. Here are the responses of some “educated” conservatives to the Grand Jury decision against indictment of police on the scene.
Michael Steele, the affirmative action, former Chairman of the Republican National Committee: a “….Black man’s life is not worth a ham sandwich…”
Breitbart’s John Nolte has reduced the complex matter to an assertion that the cops walked up to Garner and killed him in retaliation for selling untaxed cigarettes. “Police behavior sure looked inexcusable,” claims Nolte. Note the slippery word “looked.”
Fox News Charles Krauthammer pronounced the Garner decision “incomprehensible.”
John Boehner hints he will investigate the Garner case.
Michael Savage’s “Ferguson Moment” came with his pious declaration that the “Chokehold Was ‘Murder of an Innocent Black Man.’” Note his injection of race.
Glenn Beck, who is busy sucking up to CNN so he has a place to work when his operation fails, called the decision “obscene.”
Andrew Napolitano said that not indicting the police was grievously wrong.
Enjoy your “Ferguson Moment,” fellas; you’ve earned it, and thanks for showing us who you really are. Your Holiday party invitations are in the mail.
