Gutfeld: 'Hands Up, Don't Shoot' Created 'Anti-Cop Hate Tidal Wave'
“The Five” hosts tonight sounded off on the revelation that the Justice Department has found no evidence of the “hands up, don’t shoot” narrative in the Michael Brown shooting case.
“Hands up, don’t shoot” was the rallying cry of protesters like Al Sharpton following the shooting of Brown by Darren Wilson.
Outgoing Attorney General Eric Holder said, “I recognize that the findings in our report may lead some to wonder how the department's findings can differ so sharply from some of the initial widely reported accounts of what transpired.”
Dana Perino noted that the “hands up, don’t shoot” narrative “became a symbol of the moment.”
Greg Gutfeld said it “was pushed by a cult of media and activists who made it sound like it actually happened.”
“It created a toxic environment that created a growing hatred for cops that generated the death of two police officers,” Gutfeld said. “They were shot dead because of a phenomenon, of an anti-cop hate tidal wave.”
Juan Williams charged his co-hosts with ignoring that Ferguson police were found to have engaged in racial bias.
