Fox News radio host and Fox News contributor Todd Starnes claimed today that President Obama may be "orchestrating the Michael Brown tragedy."
MediaMatters.org reports that Starnes posted his bizarre theory on Facebook with no actual evidence, but rather a string of statements that are somehow all part of the grand plot:
The uncivil unrest in Ferguson, Missouri continues -- and it appears the Obama Administration may be orchestrating the Michael Brown tragedy.
NBC News is reporting that Attorney General Eric Holder and Valerie Jarrett are the administration's point persons going so far as to arrange a federal autopsy.
It was Holder who tried to convince the Ferguson Police Department not to release the video purportedly showing Brown involved in a strong-arm robbery.
He also ordered local authorities to stop using armored tanks -- even though officers were fending off Molotov cocktail bombs. It was a decision that in essence led to government sanctioned lawlessness.
The LA Times reports Jarrett and Holder have been discussing their game plan with the likes of Al Sharpton.
So while President Obama whacks golf balls and dances the two-step in tony Martha's Vineyard, his administration is in cahoots with a bona fide race hustler.
However, President Obama has never advocated "government sanctioned lawlessness," but rather called on residents of Ferguson to obey the law.
According to CNN, President Obama said today during a press conference, "There's no excuse for excessive force by police or any action that denies people the right to protest peacefully. Ours is a nation of laws, for the citizens who live under them and for the citizens who enforce them."
For decades, the U.S. Department of Justice has intervened when there have been possible civil rights violations.
The U.S. Department of Justice announced last Wednesday that it would launch a civil rights investigation into the police-killing of unarmed teen Michael Brown.
“In conducting the independent federal investigation into whether there were federal civil rights violations, we will be working as much as possible with the local authorities who are determining whether there were any state law violations,” the U.S. Attorney’s Office said in a statement, noted MSNBC.
Starnes has a long history of race baiting President Obama with accusations of race baiting.
MediaMatters.org notes that in 2013, Starnes called Obama the "Race-Baiter in Chief" after the president addressed the Trayvon Martin killing.
Starnes also claimed on "Hannity" in 2013 that Obama was trying to tear the nation apart through racial division (video below), reported MediaMatters.org.
