Who said "WHAT DO WE WANT...DEAD COPS"?

 

Be careful now, because us liberals do FACT CHECK everything that any RIGHT WING outlet professes.

 

I can already tell you to NOT ATTRIBUTE it to the MILLIONS MARCH NY or to Al Sharpton's group.

 

But let's see what you come up with.

 

Hint: Don't use FOX NEWS either; they were caught....... how do you say it......CREATIVE EDITING..... this chant.

 

 


Neither Fox news nor Al Sharpton are posting here to the best of my knowledge.

 

Maybe you prefer this one -

GOPers sense of proportion is amazing AND disgusting.

What "coordinated effort" are you ranting about. So far it seems that you see the Republican Party in that light - is that what you are talking about.

No - but it would be only appropriate for law enforcement to demonstrate that they aren't racially biased by murdering a demographically proportionate number of unarmed innocent white conservative children and adults...

  • In the Idaho city of Sandpoint, a man was distributing racist CDs in a high school parking lot in December. That man, identified by police as Scott D. Rhodes, denied distributing the CDs when officers confronted him.

You would think with all this going on, a politician would be careful in choosing his words. Was DeSantis just being stupid or was he being shrewd?


Intelligence is not a trait that is seen anymore within what was once the Republican party. Shrewd!? Sleazy is a better and more accurate term.

 

Gee, I miss having a real president!

And people in NY marched chanting, "What do we want? Dead cops". And a football player had socks depicting the police as pigs.

 

Yes, it is a hateful world we live in. But, using such incidents to attack someone not associated or approving just adds to the deplorable condition of our politics.

 

With the exception of that one word that some see as inappropriate, is there anything anyone can come up with justifying these racist claims?

You must be referring to Ed Hall.

 

I am referring to the placement of a racist picture depicting something that didn't happen in order to dishonestly depict DeSantis.

 

Now, you can point your fingers any way you'd like.
