Dan Patrick is an example of all that is wrong with America. As a representative of the State of Texas, he gave this interview:
“Too many in the general public who aren’t criminals but have a big mouth are creating situations like we saw last night,” an emotional Patrick said during an interview with Fox News on Friday. He later added, “All those protesters last night, they ran the other way expecting the men and women in blue to turn around and protect them—what hypocrites!”
“I do blame people on social media with their hatred toward police,” he said. While pointing out that last night’s Dallas protest was peaceful, Patrick said, “I do blame former Black Lives Matter protests.”
It is precisely because Black Men were killed by representatives of law and order that there was a need for a protest and organization called “Black Lives Matter.” Because Dan Patrick is speaking as a representative of the State of Texas, he exacerbates the tragedy. Patrick is an example of all that is wrong with our government.
