Sadly, there are still racebaiters out there who accept the lie as gospel because it suits their prejudices!
The Washington Post has begun it's year end wrap up of their Fact Checker column. In that column they assign lies anywhere from one Pinocchio (minor mistruth) to four Pinocchios (whoppers). Among this years four Pinocchios is the hands up don't shoot lie from Ferguson Missouri where black teen Michael Brown was shot and killed by a white police officer. The incident has been shamelessly used and the lie retold to stir up racial anger.
“Hands up, don’t shoot.”
See the full story at the Post here.
Like global warming, one of the other big lies from the left, the question arises: if things are really as bad as the left suggests why do they have to lie about it?
