Dem Congresswoman: Facts “Not A Concern” In Ferguson Case

Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton spoke for most liberals last week when she told Sean Hannity of Fox News that evidence is “not a concern” when it comes to the Darren Wilson case.

Norton’s comments came after Hannity asked her point blank whether she had actually reviewed the evidence from the Ferguson grand jury.

Her answer? Of course not.

“The evidence, that’s for you, that’s for the pundits, that’s not where I am,” she said, before launching into a familiar leftist screed about racism and police-community relations.

Hannity continued to press Norton about the circumstances of the case, pointing out that that Michael Brown had robbed a store prior to being stopped and that several witnesses testified that he charged Officer Wilson before the fatal shots were fired.

But Norton would have none of it, insisting that she didn’t want to “talk about the case” and preferred to focus on “what we should do going forward.”

Like too many of her left-wing acolytes, Norton prefers to stoke outrage rather than engage in a serious discussion about what happened in Ferguson.

The fact is that this tragedy could have been avoided if Michael Brown had simply followed orders instead of attacking a police officer and grabbing his gun. That kind of reaction is simply asking for trouble.

But far be it from leftists to let little things like facts get in the way of a valuable political opportunity.


  1. As this post and your last post demonstrate, liberals don't care about history. They is why it gets so little emphasis in schools and what is taught is often skewed. The left wing agenda is to move us away from the rule of law to the rule of the elites.

    Keep it coming.

    Grace and peace.

  2. Holmes-Norton has been on the leading edge of the Loony Left since at least the Clinton administration. She was an advocate for...the children!
    The best thing about her position as a Congress Critter is that it is a non voting position. She is the poster child for not giving DC their own voting representative or, God forbid, Senator.
