Elon Musk Was Right About “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot” BLM Narrative – “The Whole Thing Was A Fiction”

Legal Insurrection    

The truth still matters. Elon Musk was right, the “hands up, don’t shoot” narrative from the Michael Brown shooting “was a fiction.” Deal with it.

. . ."Musk should not have taken down the tweet. He was right, as Legal Insurrection readers know well from our own detailed coverage of the Brown shooting when it happened, as well as my numerous posts about the fabricated narrative.

"This post of mine in early June 2020 summed it up, Reminder: “Hands up, don’t shoot” is a fabricated narrative from the Michael Brown case

The Black Lives Matter movement was born of the Michael Brown shooting in Ferguson, Missouri. While the BLM founders started their organizing after the prior Trayvon Martin case, it was Brown and Ferguson which launched the BLM movement into the public spotlight through the protests and riots in Ferguson.

Nothing was more associated with the BLM movement than the chant “hands up, don’t shoot,” based on the narrative that Brown had his hands raised and said ‘don’t shoot’ when shot. That same chant drives protesters and rioters ripping up cities after the George Floyd killing.

I know the history of BLM and how it shot to national fame after the Brown shooting. I followed it closely and wrote about it at the time in 2014. I documented the violent instigators, many of them cross-over anti-Israel activists. See my October 25, 2014 post, Intifada Missouri – Anti-Israel activists may push Ferguson over the edge.

More than anything, BLM seized on the claim that Brown had his hands raised in surrender, saying “don’t shoot,” at the time he was shot by officer Darren Wilson. “Hands up, don’t shoot” became the signature slogan of BLM.

But it was all a lie. Brown wasn’t surrendering and didn’t say don’t shoot. And he wasn’t a victim of police misconduct. Rather than the “Gentle Giant” he was portrayed as in the media, he sucker punched Wilson while Wilson sat in his police car, tried to grab Wilson’s service pistol, and was shot when he charged Wilson a second time.

"Telling that truth in June 2020 about the Michael Brown shooting almost cost me my job.". .

In the tradition of CNN: 

Will Biden’s Cross-Dressing Official Be Disciplined For ‘Stealing Luggage’?

  WND News Center

The U.S. Energy Department, under Joe Biden’s leadership, is confirming that a cross-dressing radical whose fetishes include pretending people are dogs is on leave after he was accused of stealing a $2,300 suitcase and using it for multiple trips himself.

"But they are refusing to say whether there will be further punishment.

"A report at the Federalist explained the DOE “won’t say whether it plans to fire Biden administration official Sam Brinton, who was charged with felony theft last month after he allegedly stole a woman’s roller bag from the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport.”

A statement from the DOE only said that someone else is doing his job as deputy assistant Secretary of Spent Fuel and Waste Disposition while Brinton is on leave.

"“According to a criminal complaint reviewed by Alpha News, Brinton snatched the navy blue roller bag and its contents, worth $2,325, from the Minnesota airport baggage claim on Sept. 16 on a trip from Washington, D.C. After reviewing airport records confirming the bag’s arrival and surveillance footage of the incident, law enforcement determined that Brinton deliberately hid the woman’s luggage tag identifying the bag as hers in his own handbag.

"”The complaint notes that Brinton, who did not check a bag of his own and did not have a valid reason to be in the baggage claim in the first place, ‘then left the area at a quick pace,’’ the report said.

"Brinton later told several versions to police, including that he didn’t take it, that he took it because his clothes were inside, and that he took it, but it wasn’t his.". . .

The Case Against Everyone Else 2024 – Part 2

Kurt Schlichter

I have written about the cases for and against Donald Trump and for and against Ron DeSantis in 2024, and last Monday, I wrote Part 1 about the case against everybody else in the GOP who might run but who is not a total clown show. Part 2 is about the clown shows. 

. . ."And then there's Liz Cheney. She's like a dyslexic cockroach, always scurrying into the light. This column has to stay FCC compliant, so the precise terminology describing a potential Liz Cheney campaign is unavailable. Let's just say she is a garbage person who would love nothing better than to get a bunch of people who are not named Cheney to go off and fight wars for people who are named Cheney – you know, keeping up the family tradition. 

"Her enemy is now the GOP itself. This is a revenge run by a no-talent who gives nepotism a bad name. I'm still trying to figure out whether she's really stupid enough to think that she could cobble together a coalition of people who don't hate her sufficiently to get her past, say, 2% of the vote. Probably it's stupidity; she's not even bright enough to be humiliated by her total rejection in the Wyoming primary. Her whole patriot pose is such transparent crap. "Country first?" Yeah, for us and our kids. The Beltway Cowgirl had better things to do than fight in her daddy's wars, and the Cheney children will be safe in their actual home state of Virginia.

"What's funny is that the Democrats hate this shrill harridan just as much as we do, and she's either too blind or too stupid to realize it. I guess though if you do want to build bridges with the Democrats, unity through despising Liz Cheney is a great way to start.

"The 2024 election is going to be between Donald Trump and Ron DeSantis, and these no-chance hacks[!] have either deluded themselves into thinking they have a shot or actively want to burn down the party. The GOP needs to stand firm on excluding these clowns – no kamikaze candidates. Let them go debate themselves – their candidacies are political onanism anyway.". . .

Just who does this writer think has shown more excellent leadership and ability to govern than Ron DeSantis during this past year; that Trump showed the four years he ran this country? He stopped ISIS and made our nation secure and prosperous all the while repelling the likes of Pelosi, Schumer, Nadler and the repulsive Adam Schiff. You want the peace and quiet of some non-Trump? Watch how these characters treat any other Republican President.

Today's Democrats are the perfect match for those violent children in America's streets today; they cannot build a society; only destroy. TD
