Conservative editor makes fools of liberal pundits with one undeniable statement on Ferguson

Amid the liberal hand-wringing on “Meet the Press” Sunday, National Review editor Rich Lowry had some cold-shower advice for host Chuck Todd and lefty pundits Eugene Robinson and Andrea Mitchell:

Stop trying to make the Ferguson protests something they weren’t. And, just as importantly, stop trying to make Michael Brown, the man shot to death during a fight with police Office Darren Wilson in August, something he wasn’t.

“If you look at the most credible evidence, the lessons are really basic,” Lowry said, as though explaining the facts of life to children (which,  in some ways, he was).

“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.”

The look on Mitchell’s face said it all – a deer stuck in the headlights is a charitable description. As to Robinson, the guy spends his ink in the Washington Post alternately sucking up to and advising the Obama administration. That means reality isn’t his beat, so being hit with it on the fly was just too much.
