• Holder Admits ‘Hands Up, Don’t Shoot’ Was A Lie

    So remember when the nationwide protests erupted with half of the country shouting “Hands up, Don’t Shoot?”

    The bandwagon that members of the Congressional Black Caucus all hopped on?


    And even staged a walk-out of the Capitol with Hill staffers all raising their hands up in protest regarding the shooting death of Michael Brown?


    The #blacklivesmatter movement that gained such notoriety that the St. Louis Rams even had their opportunity to be in the spotlight?


    Turns out, it was all a big lie.

    Outgoing (feels so good to say that) Attorney General Eric Holder admitted Wednesday during a press conference that the evidence did not match the media frenzy that liberal activists used as their postcard slogan.

    “I recognize that the findings in our report may leave some to wonder how the department’s findings can differ so sharply from some of the initial, widely reported accounts of what transpired,” he said.

    But it didn’t leave ‘some’ to wonder, it left the nation divided and led to violence on a national scale fueled by the Department of Justice, Al Sharpton, the so-called mainstream media and many others who simply couldn’t let facts get in the way of a good story.

    Holder’s report reads that “the physical evidence also establishes that Brown moved forward toward Wilson after he turned around to face him. The physical evidence is corroborated by multiple eyewitnesses.”

    Moreover, on page 82, Holder admits that “disinterested” parties backed up Wilson’s version of events and these same eyewitnesses testified that they, too, perceived Michael Brown’s actions as threatening:

    This means that Michael Brown was not the ‘gentle giant’ that many news outlets claimed him to be.

    In fact, everything the Left said about Ferguson was a lie.
