VIDEO: Megyn Kelly Trounces Dem Operative Who Claims ‘Hands Up, Don’t Shoot’ Rhetoric Didn’t Stoke Racial Unrest

mgnklyDemocrat strategist Mark Hannah came on The Kelly File last week to blame racism on the death of Michael Brown and got clobbered. He claimed the protests were not incited by the – now discredited, even by Obama’s DOJ – assertion that Michael Brown had raised his hands and said “don’t shoot.” He claimed the riots occurred because of vague unhappiness with race relations and “racist policing.” 

IJ Review reports,

Kelly suggested that the mass protests, riots, and demonstrations were based on the perpetuation of the “hands up, don’t shoot” mantra.

Hannah attempted to argue that the demonstrations were the product of a long and systematic marginalization of black Americans. Kelly wasn’t on board with that theory:

“That’s not true!

“…We saw all these folks with their ‘hands up, don’t shoot,’ which did not happen!”

Dana Loesch also appeared on the show, and between her and Kelly they trounced Hannah. By the end of the segment, Kelly observed that Hannah was now repeating Loesch’s points. You have to feel sorry for Hannah. Even Obama’s DOJ has given up on trying to make Officer Darren Wilson look guilty, admitting that Brown attacked Wilson while he was inside his police car. Hannah is so brainwashed into spouting left-wing mantra that his positions here look silly. It is all part of a larger agenda by the left to foment public opinion against law enforcement, which is viewed as a conservative institution, in order to dredge up votes for the Democrats. Watch the segment below for a good laugh.
