Elizabeth Warren and Kamala Harris are looking to dethrone Old Man Biden as the Democrat nominee.
What are they doing to earn that coveted spot?
Throwing some tinder into the DUMPSTER FIRE of racial tension burning into our country right now.
5 years ago Michael Brown was murdered by a white police officer in Ferguson, Missouri. Michael was unarmed yet he was shot 6 times. I stand with activists and organizers who continue the fight for justice for Michael. We must confront systemic racism and police violence head on.

Michael Brown’s murder forever changed Ferguson and America. His tragic death sparked a desperately needed conversation and a nationwide movement. We must fight for stronger accountability and racial equity in our justice system.

Here’s the thing…
Both Kamala Harris and Elizabeth Warren said on Twitter Friday that Michael Brown was “murdered” by a “white” policeman in Ferguson, Mo. This is an absolute whopper and obviously does nothing to calm racial tension in this country. Yet it’s gotten almost no coverage.

Michael Brown was not “murdered” and the evil white racist cop was cleared of any wrongdoing, as he acted in self-defense.
The ‘hands up, don’t shoot’ narrative? It was all a lie, and was determined to be so YEARS ago.
According to the National Review:
Michael Brown was not murdered. Michael Brown was shot by officer Darren Wilson in an act of self-defense. This is why the grand jury declined to indict Wilson for murder or manslaughter, and it was also the conclusion of the Obama administration’s Department of Justice.
“Every police officer in America should be offended by Sen. Warren’s ill-informed, inflammatory tweet today,” Jeff Roorda of the St. Louis Police Officers Association told me via email. “Holding a would-be cop killer out as some sort of victim or worse yet, a hero, does no justice to the truth or to reconciliation. Her careless words disqualify her from fitness to serve impartially as commander-in-chief.”
“I was a Democratic Missouri State Representative for 8 years,” Roorda also wrote. “But, I’m sick of uninformed members of my party attacking cops. It’s just wrong.”
Attempts to contact Senator Warren’s campaign by phone and email were not returned.
But, as we all know, the Left will REFUSE to hold either candidate accountable for this.
