If you’ve paid attention to any of the “black lives matter” protests, then you’re sure to have heard the motto they scream, “hands up don’t shoot!”
But according to the Washington Post, it’s one of the biggest lies of 2015:
More from the Post:
This phrase became a rallying cry for protests after the fatal shooting of a black 18-year-old by a white police officer, Darren Wilson. Witness accounts spread after the shooting that Michael Brown had his hands raised in surrender, mouthing the words “Don’t shoot” as his last words before being shot execution-style. Democratic lawmakers raised their hands in solidarity on the House floor. But various investigations concluded this did not happen — and that Wilson acted out of self-defense and was justified in killing Brown.
While this isn’t surprising to us who follow politics, it’s good to see that not even the mainstream media could ignore the lies being peddled by racebaiting movements on the left.
