Musk’s criticism of debunked ‘Hands up, don’t shoot’ mantra triggers CNN’s Don Lemon

FOX: In an effort to fact-check Twitter owner Elon Musk on Thursday, CNN’s Don Lemon presented a dramatically watered-down version of the infamous “Hands up, don’t shoot” myth that emanated from Michael Brown’s death in Ferguson, Missouri, in 2014.

The left-wing host declared that “context” was needed after Musk posted a tweet saying the mantra was “made up.” Musk posted and deleted the tweet about Brown’s fatal shooting upon finding a closet of “#StayWoke” t-shirts at Twitter headquarters. The phrase became a national rallying cry for racial justice protests against police, but the Obama administration’s Department of Justice concluded after an extensive investigation that Brown had not raised his arms in surrender before being fatally shot by Officer Darren Wilson. 

Lemon, after declaring, “facts first,” told viewers that “some said” Brown was trying to surrender when killed by Wilson. He then said that the DOJ report “cast doubt” on that account in a clip flagged byย conservative media watchdog NewsBusters. more

  1. The only topic on which Lemon is qualified to give advice and/or opine is anal sex technique. I don’t need any advice on that because the very thought of engaging in it is absolutely repulsive.
