(Townhall) -- Remember the signature event in Ferguson, Missouri, that started the recent war on cops? You know, where the lie of 'hands up don't shoot' was spawned? Remember when the Congressional Black Caucus embarrassingly stood on the House floor with their hands raised? I remember when they smeared the character, reputation, and sacrifice of the fine men and women who put on a uniform and risk greatly to protect and serve. They weren't alone. Even President Obama had added fuel to the fire claiming that our police officers have a problem with people who don't look like them. At that time, it seemed every liberal was out there mendaciously raising his or her hands in the air.
It was in vogue back then to attack the police to score cheap political points and secure votes. It was pure political pandering. But even years later, this false narrative is still a political platform for politicians in the Democratic Party, the NAACP, and carnival barkers like Al Sharpton. Commentators on CNN and MSNBC continue to interview black racialists who violate every rule of statistics, manipulating data as proof that white cops are inherently biased. Empirical research or data proved none of this junk. It is all based on emotion, lies, and propaganda.
