Sheriff Explains EXACTLY how “Hands up, don’t shoot!” Changed America [VIDEO]

One of the things I love about Sheriff David Clarke is he has a gift for cutting right to the heart of bull crap. On Sean Hannity’s show, he did just that in glorious fashion. He flatly stated that ‘fake news’ has a birthday and it is Aug. 9th, 2014… the day that Michael Brown was shot by a police officer in Ferguson, Missouri. The day the false narrative ‘Hands Up, Don’t Shoot!” was born. He’s right… it did change America and it put a target on every police officer out there. You can thank Black Lives Matter and communist radicals for that. The cop-haters branded themselves very effectively.

This monstrous lie was pushed by the media and leftists over and over and over again. Some nitwits still believe this hoax. That’s fake news for you… that’s what that really is. But to counter it, as the left always does, they have labeled bloggers and media on the right as the purveyors of fake news. We’ve played this game before. Any blog or writer can make a mistake… it doesn’t mean they put out fake news. However, the left specializes in it.


From TheBlaze:

Outspoken conservative Sheriff David Clarke ripped the mainstream media narrative of “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot!” as “fake news” that eventually led to the shooting deaths of multiple police officers.

The Wisconsin law enforcement official, who’s been a strident defender of the Second Amendment and police, argued Thursday with lawyer Eric Guster on Fox News’ “Hannity,” saying that “fake news has a birthplace and a birthday — Aug. 9, 2014 — when this widely held false belief was propagated by the media.”

That was the day Michael Brown was fatally shot by a police officers in Ferguson, Missouri, which resulted in months of protests, unrest and violence across America. The protesters’ “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot!” rallying cry was based on the belief that Brown had his hands up and his back turned when he was shot — but that claim was walked back in eyewitness testimony. Still many believe “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot!” to this day, Clarke said, and it resulted in the shooting deaths of police officers.

“It changed America,” Clarke said. “This anti-police sentiment rose out of this. What I call the bastard child of ‘Hands Up, Don’t Shoot!’ ‘Black Lives Matter’ grew out of this thing. It swept the country.”

Clarke puts the blame where it belongs, squarely on the Marxist, biased media: “We have dead cops because of that ‘Hands Up, Don’t Shoot!’ lie … people who were trying to avenge for the life of Mike Brown, who was a thug.” Now, officers have lost their lives across America… in Dallas, Baton Rouge, New York City and a whole country inbetween. They are being hunted and assassinated before our very eyes.

Of the top 20 primary sources for news, 18 are left leaning out there. So you see, they were doing fake news before it was branded as such. Right wing blogs and media outlets are the ones that break the biggest stories out there. They are the ones that bring actual truth and facts to the American people. Do we screw up? You betcha! But most of us admit it when we do and we go on. Because if we don’t, who will? You can’t trust the media and you need to source all news you get, but bloggers are out there in the trenches these days doing the hard work you can’t get so-called journalists to do.

Just ask Sheriff Clarke who he listens to these days… it’s not the media who have helped kill officers on the streets. Real news is found on the right anymore. The left either no longer knows how or doesn’t care to tell the truth anymore.
