Hillary’s right, sort of
The Scooby van’s been parked and Hillary’s imitation of Velma sneaking across the mid-west is over. She’s finally taken a position on something. That something being the Baltimore riots.
In typical Democrat fashion, she’s quick to parrot a list of grievances already voiced by countless others. And, in typical Clinton fashion the sole solution Miss Here-I’ve-Come-To -Save-The-Day offered is poll tested and supported in virtually all political quarters – body cams for police so that essentially every arrest can become a YouTube or Twitter moment. She also said something surprisingly accurate for someone of her pedigree.
Hillary said there were “patterns” seen in Ferguson, Staten Island, and Baltimore. Those patterns require us to review “hard truths about race and justice”. Indeed.
Patterns in the places Hillary listed involve knee-jerk assumptions made by liberals that police behaved badly in an interaction with a thug. That’s the hard truth about race and justice in these situations. No need for national soul searching or discussions. Liberals distort these incidents to score political points. Simple enough.
It’s not the only hard truth. By and large these incidents occur in places that have trended Hillary’s way for generations. Baltimore for example hasn’t elected a Republican mayor in nearly half a century and the current incumbent all but authorized rioting in her city. By contrast, North Charleston – where a police officer gunned down a fleeing suspect on camera in broad daylight – in red state America hasn’t been subjected to rioting or looters.
Conservatives haven’t run our Baltimores and Fergusons into the ground. Hillary’s party has.
So, yes, Hillary, there are hard truths to be explored. Among them, why have you progressives deliberately done what you have to urban America?
