Thursday on Fox News Channel’s “Hannity,” former House Speaker Newt Gingrich blamed the “left” for the “constant” anti-police bias that exists as civil unrest continues in Charlotte, NC to protest the fatal police shooting of Keith Lamont Scott.
“The whole narrative of the left is that whatever happens is the police’s fault,” Gingrich said. “[S]o, on the left, there’s this constant bias against the police and a constant bias against people who are trying to enforce the law.”
Gingrich later pointed out how this has taken a toll on law enforcement.
“If you’re a policeman and you realize over the last six or eight months, there are people out there gunning for policemen,” he added. “You have a lot shorter fuse than you would have had a year ago, because you kept getting told that your life is in danger from random people because they want to kill cops.”
