Fox’s Todd Starnes: Obama Admin ‘May Be Orchestrating the Michael Brown Tragedy’

Batshit interesting theory from Fox News commentator Todd Starnes.

Starnes wrote on his Facebook Monday that the Obama administration “may be orchestrating the Michael Brown tragedy.”

Starnes’ full post:

To be sure, Starnes is referring to legitimate media reports about the happenings in Ferguson, Mo. related to the police shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown.

The Los Angeles Times reported Sunday that Obama senior adviser Valerie Jarrett is relaying communication from Ferguson to the president via Rev. Al Sharpton.

Attorney General Eric Holder was quoted by the Wall Street Journal as instructing his deputies to tell Ferguson police “to remove the damn tanks” patrolling the streets. The report also detailed disagreement between the AG and local police in the decision to release the video of Brown apparently robbing a store.

But connecting the dots to assert that the White House is intentionally causing chaos in a small city — that’s all Starnes.
