Palin: Blood Is on Media’s ‘Complicit Hands’ for Not Telling Truth About Black Lives Matter

palinYou may have noticed a pattern tonight of big conservative voices denouncing the Black Lives Matter movement in increasingly harsh terms.

Well, Sarah Palin is also weighing in, and after Dallas she’s just as outraged, declaring that “Black Lives Matter is a farce.”

“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.

She told followers to ‘stand up if you’re sick of being called racist when proclaiming EVERY LIFE MATTERS, black as much as white and every skin tone in between,” pleading with everyone to reject the idea of “hyphenated” Americans.

As for the police shootings this week, Palin said the footage she saw online was horrible and “nauseating,” but Dallas was “exponentially worse than any one bad cop, his union bosses, and the media’s verbose attempts to intimidate and falsely accuse.”
