Yes, we’ve had entirely too much ugliness and its attendant outrage in the news recently, but earlier tonight Presidential candidate Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts issued an astounding tweet observing the fifth anniversary of the death of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri:
There you have it: a woman who aspires to be the Leader of the Free World is fanning the flames of racial resentments — hell, she’s dumping gasoline on them — by characterizing Michael Brown’s death as “murder.” This does, of course, contradict the findings of the Barack Obama Justice Department led by Attorney General Eric Holder, so I wonder if any enterprising “journalist” will ask either Sen. Warren or Mr. Holder about her characterization of the encounter in light of the department’s report.
But I guess that to the Senator rekindling passions that led to days of riots and, almost certainly, to attacks on police officers is a small price to pay in order to cut into Joe Biden’s advantage with black voters.
What a despicable move on the part of Senator Warren.
