Palin: Blood on media’s ‘complicit hands’ for lying about ‘Black Lives Matter’
Sarah Palin continues the right-wing trope of blaming the Black Lives Matter movement for the shooting of police officers.
“Shame on our culture’s influencers,” she wrote on Facebook, “who would stir contention and division that could lead to evil such as that in Dallas. Shame on politicians and pundits giving credence to thugs rioting against police officers and the rule of law in the name of ‘peaceful protests.’”
And then she accused the mainstream media of having blood on its hands:
Media: quit claiming the rioters are “peaceful” as they stomp on our flag, shout “death to cops!” and celebrate violence. It is sick. You perpetuate a perverted message evil men thrive on to intimidate and warp malleable minds that would believe one race matters more than another. Blood is on your complicit hands when you naively or purposefully refuse to tell of this movement’s truth.
