Four Members of Congress Use “Hands Up” Gesture On House Floor.......By Janna B.
In a truly stunning display, FOUR members of Congress used the Mike Brown “hands up” gesture on the House Floor on Monday evening. It what can only be described as outrageous, the move comes as a slap in the face to the people of Ferguson, namely the grand jury, to Officer Darren Wilson, and to white America. Ladies and gentlemen, these are our elected representatives, exploiting a false narrative, and shoving it in our collective faces. This is racist, obscene, and lawless in its intent. Truly, America is corrupt at its center. No one need blame this on Obama, this is on everyone. We the people are rotten to the core.
Are the people outraged that members of Congress are using the shooting of a thug as justification for a “revolution”? Every word of the narrative has been proven false. Officer Darren Wilson was vindicated. The entire “hands up” movement is a fake! It never happened. It is one issue forSt. Louis Ramsplayers to use the gesture. No doubt it is a slap in the face to St. Louis and law enforcement officials, but what more does one expect from most members of the NFL? Many of them come from the same background as a Mike Brown. Rams wide receiverKenny Britt,who participated in side-show, has had numerous run-ins with the law.
The NFL is composed of many thugs beating the heck out of each other, who get paid to take it to the field instead of the street for the people’s entertainment. The majority of people know that many of them would be in prison if they were not in a football uniform. Fortunately they do not represent the people. But the members of the House do, and they crossed the proverbial line in the sand. The NY Daily News reports:
Four members of the Congressional Black Caucus did the “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot” gesture during remarks Monday on the House Floor, to show solidarity with protesters in Ferguson, Mo.
Reps. Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY), Yvette Clarke (D-NY), Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Tex.) and Al Green (D-Tex.), referred to the gesture that has come to symbolize the outrage over the death of Brown, the African-American teen shot dead by police officer Darren Wilson in August.
This is the rot of the Congressional Black Caucus, the legally challenged group, with at least one-third of its members involved in regular ethics probes. “Hands up, don’t shoot,” is fiction. Even Joe Scarborough, regular conservative sell-out, went on a tirade about this idiocy. The MSNBC host expressed his outrage at the movement, and complete shock at the image of Mike Brown, the criminal, as a national symbol of police brutality.
If Scarborough is outraged, something is frighteningly wrong. Where is the rationale? It is gone with the wind. But then again, what better figure than Mike Brown to serve as a kind of Christ-like figure of martyrdom for a criminal group like the Congressional Black Caucus? Sickeningly it fits. But every single person who had the audacity to pull the “hands up” gesture on the House Floor should never hold political office. But the worst part is not one of them will face repercussions.
“This has become the new symbol, a new statement, a statement wherein people around the country now, are calling to the attention of those who don’t quite understand that this is a movement that will not dissipate, it will not evaporate. It is a movement that is going to continue,” Green said on the floor.
Sadly, Al Green is right. This movement will not stop. It continues to build momentum in every sector, both for white liberals and blacks alike. It’s disgraceful because it is one hundred percent false. Officer Darren Wilson was exonerated. He did everything by the book. There as no smidgen of corruption in this incident. He followed the law, something that is a lost art in America. An outraged Joe Scarborough stated on his MSNBC morning show Tuesday:
“It’s a lie,” Scarborough said Tuesday on “Morning Joe,” in reference to witness statements that Michael Brown didn’t have his hands up in the air when he was shot dead.
“What is wrong with this country? What is wrong with these people? What’s wrong with these elected officials, they know it’s a lie. They know the cops didn’t shoot him with his hands in the air. They know it’s a lie and they’re doing this on that Capitol floor?”
Exactly, they KNOW it’s a lie. But it doesn’t matter, because America has reached a point where the lie better serves the purposes of the people. These disgraceful Congressional House members have a mission, an agenda. One that involves tearing this nation apart, ripping it limb from limb. Dr. Fred writes, “The reality seems to be that it’s a new day in America, a day in which jackasses have come out of the woodwork to do what they can to destroy the fabric of America’s traditional value system.”
It is a new day, one where America’s sovereignty hangs in the balance, and socialism is afoot. Change is coming, and it will be bloody, painful, and unfortunately, life altering. America the land of the free is gone, and in its place is a land where lawlessness, ignorance, and outright lies have replaced all semblance of truth.
