In her syndicated column today, Ann Coulter lashed out at Hillary Clinton for featuring the Mothers of the Movement, a group of African-American mothers who have lost children to gun violence and police abuses, at the Democratic National Convention.
Titling her column “When Do The Mothers Of ISIS Speak?,” Coulter criticized the DNC for “celebrating the anti-police group Black Lives Matter” and including Lezley McSpadden, the mother of Michael Brown, whose only “claim to fame,” according to Coulter, is “raising a hoodlum” and “giving birth to, and then carefully nurturing, a violent, cop-assaulting criminal.”
Whatever questionable choices were made at the Republican National Convention last week, I didn’t hear of a single speaker whose sole accomplishment was raising a delinquent who attacked a cop.
But as the country reels from the cold-blooded murder of five policemen in Dallas and three in Baton Rouge, Lezley McSpadden, mother of Mike Brown, America’s most famous cop-assaulting criminal, appeared on stage at the Democratic National Convention.
Welcome to Hillary’s convention, celebrating the anti-police group Black Lives Matter!
If Brown’s mother had done something noteworthy, apart from raising a hoodlum – perhaps pioneering a cardiac stent that will save people’s lives – then one could understand her being a “headliner” at the Democrat’s convention. But, as I understand it, her sole claim to fame is giving birth to, and then carefully nurturing, a violent, cop-assaulting criminal.
Donald Trump, along with every other Republican ever to run for president, is required to repeatedly “disavow” David Duke – someone he’s never met, never mentioned, never thought of – and certainly didn’t invite to speak at his convention.
But Hillary invites to her convention the mother of a man whose criminality destroyed a police officer’s life, tore the country apart and gave birth to a murderous cop-hating movement. Will a single reporter ask Hillary to disavow that?
