Some people just can’t have their point of view disagreed with without getting crazy mad! I would know I’ve had to work on that myself, but keep it together on public television! Louisiana’s governor Bobby Jindal was called into Fox News to discuss the recent murder of three cops that occurred in Baton Rouge yesterday. Host Shepard Smith was not having it when he heard “all lives matter”, that’s when he loses his cool…
While discussing three police officers who were fatally shot in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, on Sunday, Jindal told Smith, “Look … it is time for folks across party lines, across ideological lines to condemn this violence, to condemn this insanity.”
“We’ve got to come together,” Jindal continued. “We’ve got to say that all lives matter, doesn’t matter what color you are, black, white, brown, red, it doesn’t matter. All lives matter. We’ve got to protect and value our belief —”
Smith then interrupted Jindal saying the “phrase you just used is one that is seen by many as derogatory.”
“I just wonder why it is that you used that phrase when there’s a certain segment of the population that believes it’s a real dig on them,” Smith said.
Jindal replied that “it’s not meant to be.”
Man-up Shep! You can’t be afraid to hurt people’s feelings! Shame on him for trying to dumb down the seriousness of this situation. Is he a liberal?! Because his views certainly don’t align with that of the average Republican.
