‘#MorningJoe’ Panel: #MichaelBrown Was A ‘Thug,’ Protests Are Based On ‘Lies’

Blogger’s comment:

Does anyone believe these people, including former Congressman Joe Scarborough took the time to read through the copious amounts of evidence released by Robert McCulloch? No? That was McCulloch’s point in flooding the jury with it and after the verdict, the rest of us.

McCulloch wins. This is retro-racial America.

Co-host Joe Scarborough began by scolding protestors across the nation for making Michael Brown, fatally shot by former Ferguson, Mo. “the face of black oppression.”

“The cops have every reason to be pissed off this morning,” Scarborough said. He argued thatthe five players on the St. Louis Rams who raised their arms in solidarity with Ferguson on Sunday based their gesture on “lies” that contradicted findings of a grand jury investigation.

The morning show host compared Brown to George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch volunteer in Florida who shot and killed an unarmed black teenager in 2012 and who Scarborough said was a “thug.”

Scarborough concluded with a piece of advice to his critics:

“And by the way, if I’ve offended anybody by saying what I’ve said, trust me, 95 percent of America think just like me,” he said.

“Just because there are cowards who won’t say that on TV… that’s their problem, not mine,” said Scarborough.
