“HANDS UP, DON’T SHOOT”–ONE OF THIS YEARS BIGGEST LIES

The Washington Post recently came out with the annual list of the most outrageous lies of the year. guess which one came in first…that’s right, “hands up, don’t shoot.”

Well now isn’t that sweet. All the phony politicos in congress and elsewhere along with the newsies and the sports figures that promoted and ran with this totally false story have offered no apology or remorse. You and I really didn’t expect any now, did we? Of course not. these non-thinking dolts are like lemmings to the sea. Go along with what everybody…except FOX NEWS says.

FOX NEWS is the only outlet that pleaded for calm until the entire story is revealed. The were dismissed by almost everyone and especially cnn and msnbc. Wonder if they will ever admit they were wrong in their rush to judgement.
Probably not…how silly of me.

This issue is addressed in <strong”MICHAEL BROWN JR. DIDN’T HAVE TO DIE.” The headlong bolt by our president and attorney general did nothing to abate the refrain. Oh no. As a matter of fact they did everything to further this blatant falsehood.

By now everyone has turned their attention to other more pressing matters like (pick your issue to be outraged) and the bogus “Hand up, Don’t Shoot” has been all but forgotten. Not to be forgotten is former Ferguson police Officer Darren Wilson, who became the target of slings and arrows when he shouldn’t have.

One can draw a comparison to the Baltimore 6. We need something to pull us out of this mess. Holding the media accountable is a good start.
