So said Rich Lowry, on ‘Meet the Press,’ while surrounded by liberal-progressive thug-enablers.
National Review editor Rich Lowry riled up a panel of establishment media talkers Sunday by advising Americans to obey the law and exercise caution with police.
“If you look at the most credible evidence [of Michael Brown’s death at the hands of a Ferguson, Mo., police officer], the lessons are really basic,” Lowry said during an appearance on Meet the Press. “Don’t rob a convenience store. Don’t fight with a policeman when he stops you and try to take his gun. And when he yells at you to stop, just stop.”
Those comments elicited gasp from a panel that included the Washington Post’s Eugene Robinson and MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell. Mitchell exclaimed “Whoa, whoa” during Lowry’s comments, while Robinson said his recitation of the known facts in the case was an attempt to “relitigate” Brown’s death.
Gutsy move. Go you, Rich.
Look, if I punched a cop and tried to grab his gun, he would shoot me. And my friends, my family, and fellow members of my socio-economic stratum would say of me, “What a dumbass.” There would be no rioting. There would be no protests. My parents would not try to make a quick buck by selling grammatically incorrect T-shirts in my memory. There would be universal acknowledgement that I had acted stupidly and the outcome, while undesirable, was a reasonable expectation given the circumstances.
