Todd Starnes: Obama Helping 'Race Hustlers' In Ferguson

While Bryan Fischer said President Obama didn’t go far enough in condemning police actions in Ferguson, Missouri, Todd Starnes today claimed that Obama helped “professional race hustlers” during his remarks on violence in Ferguson yesterday.

Reacting to the news that Michael Brown, the teenager who was killed, was a suspect in a shoplifting case, Starnes suggested that Brown was a violent criminal.

“The Mainstream Media led us to believe that Michael Brown was a lovable, college-bound teenager who was just minding his own business when he was randomly accosted by the police,” he said. “There was a rush to judgment in this case and the chief offender was our commander in chief. President Obama was all too willing to stand before the cameras and deliver another ‘Cops Acting Stupidly’ speech. I wonder who will deliver the ‘politicians acting stupidly’ speech?”

Of course, it is now being reported that the police officer who fatally shot Brown was not aware that he was a suspect in the convenience store shoplifting.

The narrative in Ferguson Missouri has taken a dramatic turn.

The Mainstream Media led us to believe that Michael Brown was a lovable, college-bound teenager who was just minding his own business when he was randomly accosted by the police.

It was a narrative advanced by professional race hustlers - and quite frankly - to some extent - by the Obama Administration.

The police now tell us Mr. Brown was the suspect in a strong arm robbery.

I doubt that's going to sway the "peaceful protesters."

"I am incensed," Laura Keys, 50, told The St. Louis Post-Dispatch. "I can't believe this is the tactic they are using, bringing up a robbery to make the victim look like he was the person who created this whole mess."

There was a rush to judgment in this case and the chief offender was our commander in chief.

President Obama was all too willing to stand before the cameras and deliver another "Cops Acting Stupidly" speech.

I wonder who will deliver the "politicians acting stupidly" speech?
