Hillary Clinton allows others as well as herself to promote and advertise herself as a feminist pro-woman loving candidate who speaks out against blatant sexism and misogyny. But she shows some misogyny too when she feels the situation warrants it. She has got quite the double standard in that department. Her pro woman mantra does not apply to the female police officer who shot and killed an African American man in Oklahoma.
On Friday, Betty Shelby who is a Tulsa, Oklahoma police officer shot and killed an African American man in the line of duty. And now the media is going crazy. Shelby was dealing with a belligerent and verbally abusive suspect who was not obeying her orders. The man reached into his vehicle, against orders, and Shelby assumed he was going for his weapon so she shot and killed him.
A plethora of videos of the incident have been released. The victim was 40 year old Terence Crutcher. The video shows him disobeying direct commands and then proceeding to reach into his SUV for something before being shot. Crutcher was black and Shelby was white. So of course Black Lives Matter is completely up in arms. Once again the narrative of the oppression of African Americans is at the forefront of American media.
Clinton always takes advantage of the chance to pander to the African American community. Who actually do not like her very much. They much prefer Bernie Sanders. She said the following about the fateful shooting,
“We have got to tackle systemic racism. This horrible shooting again. How many times do we have to see this in our country? This is just unbearable and it needs to be intolerable. And maybe I can, by speaking directly to white people, say, ‘Look, this is not who we are.’ We have got to do everything possible to improve policing, to go right at implicit bias.”
Basically Hillary is saying if you’re a white cop dealing with a black criminal, if you don’t let them Almost get the jump on you, and possibly kill you, you hate black people.
Without really knowing anything about the incident Clinton is already calling the officer involved racist. She went into a tirade against white people and “racist” people. She went on,
“We can do better. We have got to rein in what is absolutely inexplicable, and we’ve got to have law enforcement respect communities.”
Apparently Clinton cannot understand why the officer would be in the least bit confused and scared when a suspect deliberately defies orders and goes into their car. Perhaps to get a weapon?? Considering Clinton knows what it feels like to be beat up in the press you would think she would have compassion and empathy for another woman. But nope. Throw this officer to the wolves.
Now if Donald Trump said this the media would be all over him for attacking a woman and a police officer no less. But since Clinton whose a liberal did it that is ok because it is cool. We now unfortunately live in a society where it is cool and accepted to bash and criticize police officers and cops. #thanksObama
