It should come as no surprise that CNN political commentator Sally Kohn is, through her tweets, trying to redirect attention from the rioting in Baltimore back toward the issue of police violence. But what sort of hashtag is #BaltimoreRising when rioters loot a CVS, set it on fire, and then try to sabotage the efforts of firefighters to put it out?
@sallykohn Perspective? Do you have a TV?

@sallykohn I can focus on more than one thing. Moral equivalence is a bankrupt game.

@sallykohn "Shame." Your white paternalism is showing.

@sallykohn Baltimore's not rising. This is anarchy. Nothing good will come of it, and the media and Obama administation foments it.

Apparently, liberal "perspective" means watching a city burn, it's people rioting & looting, & exclaiming, "that city is RISING!" @sallykohn
