Hillary Clinton says a lot of things that just are not so

Heather MacDonald:
Hillary’s Debate Lies

With her comments about crime, policing, and race, the candidate helps push a false—and dangerous—narrative.

Hillary Clinton repeated her incessant lie last night that the criminal justice system is infected with “systemic racism.” Race “determines” how people are “treated in the criminal justice system,” she said. Blacks are “more likely [than whites] to be arrested, charged, convicted and incarcerated” for “doing the same thing.” Such a dangerous falsehood, should Clinton act on it as president, would result not just in misguided policies but in the continued delegitimation of the criminal justice system. That delegitimation, with its attendant hostility and aggression toward police officers, has already produced the largest one-year surge in homicides in urban areas in nearly a half-century.
...
There is much more.

It is important to push back against these liberal lies.  She also lied about the economy and the cause of the Great Recession.  It seems that her first instinct is to say something that is not so that liberals want to hear.

MacDonald is an expert on the criminal justice system and she carefully skewers Clinton's misguided pronouncements.
