Folks say you’re known by the company you keep. So this little revelation tells you just about everything you need to know about the Democrats and Hillary Clinton.
Hat tip to Gateway Pundit who reports Mike Brown’s mother has been invited to speak at the Democrat National Convention in the city of brotherly love next week.
You remember Mike Brown, right? He was the “gentle giant” who was cruelly shot and killed by a racist white police officer after he surrendered and pleaded “hands up, don’t shoot.”
Yeah, this guy’s mom.

You might also remember the grace and dignity in which his stepfather Louis Head accepted the verdict of the grand jury who determined the officer who shot Brown would not be indicted, when he shouted “Burn this b*tch down,” inciting riots in Ferguson and elsewhere, and spawning the Black Lives Matter movement.
And oh, but the way, Brown’s mother – the one who will be given her moment on the stage at the convention – apparently was involved in a street brawl in 2014 over the rights to T-shirt sales. Brown’s mother Leslie McSpadden reportedly assaulted and robbed grandmother Pearlie Gordon of $1,400.
But heck, that’s all perfectly understandable, give the pain and grief they were experiencing over the death of their gentle giant.
So let me just come out and say it: the Democrat Party has come out on the side of anti-cop extremists and violent thugs.
Twitchy reports, Michael Brown’s mother has a history of making inflammatory anti-cop statements. After two cops were shot in Ferguson last March, she was positively elated at the news.
“Woke up in a GREAT MOOD this morning. 2 Cops got Shot in FERGUSON last night. You ant seen sh** yet, wait till this SUMMER,” she tweeted.
She also commented on Facebook, “If my FAM woulda got JUSTICE in August maybe those two cops wouldn’t have got shot LAST Night…”
It got worse: “F*** THEM 2 COPS..DON’T GOT NO SYMPATHY FOR THEM OR THEY FAMILIES…Aint no FUN when the Rabbit got the GUN.”
According to the convention website, Tuesday’s program will feature “Mothers of the Movement.”
“Tuesday will feature the roll call vote and how Hillary has spent her entire career working to make a difference for children, families, and our country. The Mothers of the Movement participating include Gwen Carr, Mother of Eric Garner; Sybrina Fulton, Mother of Trayvon Martin; Maria Hamilton, Mother of Dontré Hamilton; Lucia McBath, Mother of Jordan Davis; Lezley McSpadden, Mother of Michael Brown; Cleopatra Pendleton-Cowley, Mother of Hadiya Pendleton; Geneva Reed-Veal, Mother of Sandra Bland.”
Whose children is Hillary working to make a difference for? Certainly not the children of cops.
This is a disgrace. But this is the depth to which liberal progressive culture has sunk. God help us.
