A group of liberal idiots (forgive the redundancy) showed up at a police union hall in Portland with a camcorder to protest the decision of a New York grand jury not to prosecute a police officer implicated in the death of Eric Garner.
As a car pulled up and a man exited, the throng greeted him with a rendition of the anti-police ditty written by actor-turned-grievance monger Samuel L. Jackson. They sang:
I can hear my neighbor cryin’ ‘I can’t breathe.’
Now I’m in the struggle and I can’t leave.
Callin’ out the violence of the racist police.
We ain’t gonna stop, till people are free.
Just one small problem. The man they serenaded was not a cop; he’s a janitor.
So far, so bad. The presumption that racism played a role in the death of Garner, Michael Brown, or any other black cause célèbre at the hands of police is wholly unproven. But what difference does that make to a liberal flash mob?
Any group of self-respecting human beings, upon learning of their mistake, would have slunk away, tails between their legs. But no lefties! They continued to harass the man — even after he assured them he is not racist — by accusing him of being drunk.
Toward the end of the video, one of them says, “He’s aggravated, I’m afraid he’s gonna hit us with his car.” Lucky for them, they misjudged the man again.
