|Lt. Gov. Peter Kinder Who sees "Marxists And Black Radicals" everywhere!|
This overreach has come in the form of Missouri's Republican Lt. Gov. Peter Kinder who has accused Justice Department officials of "fanning the flames of racial division,"!!! Kinder also asserted that the department was.... are you ready... "staffed with Marxists and black radicals"! This guy even doubled down and defended statements he had made a day earlier accusing agency officials of "racism".
Kinder didn't stop at the DOJ and their report either.
After Brown's death, some witnesses said Brown had his hands in the air when he was shot. But the Justice Department report said there were "no credible witness accounts that state that Brown was clearly attempting to surrender when Wilson shot him."
With this in mind let's take a look at an interview on the wacko conservative news outlet Newsmax TV, host Steve Malzberg and Kinder. In the interview Malzberg suggested that the protests that followed Brown's death were in response to a false premise of "Hands up, don't shoot" that he said was promoted by not only Attorney General Eric Holder but President Barack Obama as well!
Well that was all the prompting Kinder needed as he quickly agreed and said Obama and Holder had joined in "incitement of the mob" and "encouraging disorder in Ferguson."
Of course neither Kinder nor Malzberg cited specific comments by Obama or Holder.
The TV show host later asked Kinder: "Is there more racism in the Justice Department than there is in the town of Ferguson in the police department?" Kinder responded...
"There is more racism in the Justice Department than there is in any, yes, than anywhere I see in the St. Louis area. It is the Eric Holder and Obama left and their minions who are obsessed with race while the rest of us are moving on beyond it."
In addition to this lunacy Kinder also told The Associated Press that he stood behind those statements saying that he believed Holder appeared to pick sides soon after Brown's shooting when he met with Brown's family but not Wilson saying...
"The Justice Department has had an interest in fanning the flames of racial divisions since the first day Eric Holder took office. So has this president."
Kinder big finale' came not only with the fact that he had the audacity to attend Brown's funeral but claimed that he frequently "goes into the urban core" and has fared better than many other Republicans in attracting votes in Missouri's predominantly Democratic big cities.
I think those days have all but passed after these statements come to light.
