Clinton Invites Chaos in Pursuit of Black Voter Turnout
Charlotte burning thanks in part to a cynical, and dangerous, game being played by Democrats
Police say Scott was armed and refused to lower his weapon after repeated warnings, while Scott’s family members maintain he was simply reading a book. Police said no book was found at the scene, and despite the fact that both the officer who shot Scott and the city’s police chief are black, protesters are claiming racism. “It’s time for the voiceless majority to stand up and be heard,” said Police Chief Kerr Putney. “It’s time to change the narrative because I can tell you from the facts that the story’s a little bit different as to how it’s been portrayed so far, especially through social media.” This is a pattern that is becoming all too familiar. A police officer shoots a black man in the line of duty, liberal politicians and members of the black community immediately assume the shooting was unjust, make snap statements to that effect, and members of the black community riot. Despite Putney's pleas, it's unlikely that the narrative surrounding Scott's death will change anytime soon, for it is part of a wider narrative that has been pushed by the Left and has lately come to be wholly embraced by the Democratic Party. It is the myth of systemic racism in America — the myth that law enforcement and the courts are inherently racist and white people inherently privileged. It is a myth that became official Democratic Party dogma when President Obama sent White House officials to the funeral of Michael Brown. It is also a myth that has becoming a feature of Hillary Clinton's campaign. Donald Trump's response to the first night of rioting was to tweet Wednesday morning, "hopefully the violence & unrest in Charlotte will come to an immediate end." He also tweeted "to those injured, get well soon. We need unity & leadership." Clinton, on the other hand, chose to fan the flames of the cops-are-racist narrative. "Keith Lamont Scott. Terence Crutcher. Too many others. This has got to end," she tweeted.
