While police officers are getting murdered in Dallas and Baton Rouge, while others are under assault in Missouri, Georgia and Tennessee, while supporters of the Black Lives Matter movement attempt to justify the murders of police officers, the Democratic National Convention, AKA Hillary’s Coronation, will feature the mothers of black men who died in confrontations with police, thereby perpetuating the myth that there is systemic racism in police departments across the nation.
One mother who will speak will be Lezley McSpadden, the mother of Michael Brown, the “Gentle Giant” who burgled a convenience store, then attempted to grab the gun of officer Darren Wilson before Wilson shot and killed him. Barack Obama then referred to Brown’s death as “Walking while black,” as Ben Shapiro noted in a video explaining the incident. Brown’s death catalyzed the Black Lives Matter Movement that has engendered calls for murdering police officers.
Other mothers the DNC will feature include Sybrina Fulton, the mother of Trayvon Martin, who was shot by George Zimmerman after Martin repeatedly slammed Zimmerman’s head on the pavement, and Gwen Carr, the mother of Eric Garner, who was massively overweight and died when police administered a hold when he resisted arrest, and Geneva Reed-Veal, the mother of Sandra Bland, whose death was viewed by Black Lives Matter members as a murder that was covered up, although that, too has been debunked.
Hillary Clinton’s polling in the black community vis-à-vis Donald Trump is nearly as dominant as Barack Obama’s was against Mitt Romney in 2012; according to last week’s NBC News/Wall Street Journal/Marist poll, Clinton got 88% of the black vote in Ohio, Trump gather exactly 0%; in Pennsylvania, Clinton got 91% of the black vote; Trump again got 0%.
Hillary’s Coronation, will feature the mothers of black men who died in confrontations with police, thereby perpetuating the myth that there is systemic racism in police departments across the nation.
But the Democratic Party is taking no chances; by appealing to the Black Lives Matter movement, they expect to gin up their support in the black community, even if doing so means that they must implicitly target the police to do so.
