#WikiLeaks: Clinton Wanted to Use Eric Garner to Push Gun Control, His Daughter is Livid [VIDEO]

Political strategy has been likened to sausage-making: the results are delicious, but you don’t want to watch it being made.

The Clinton political machine has become an expert in the production of blutwurst — blood sausage — in that it scores political points on the deaths of others.

Making blood sausage. Yummy.

Exhibit A: they were thrilled to trot out the “Mothers of the Movement” at the Democratic National Convention.

(Yes, Hillary met with these mothers for long past her allotted one-half hour — no doubt a political calculation in itself. And all the while she was probably thinking of how to make some tasty sausage out of the meeting. But I digress.)

Erica Garner, the daughter of Eric Garner, who died in 2014 after being put in a police chokehold, is incensed that the Clinton campaign is trying to make hay out of her father’s death.

Emails hacked and released by WikiLeaks show that the campaign had planned to use Garner’s death in an anti-gun op-ed piece that would be written by Hillary Clinton. The piece was eventually published by the New York Daily News in March.

Erica Garner, who supported Bernie Sanders, was livid upon the revelations made by WikiLeaks.

Oh, but Erica needn’t have worried. The Clinton campaign didn’t need Eric Garner’s name in the op-ed after all. You see, Eric Garner was not killed by a gun, as Clinton staffer Maya Harris pointed out. Using his name in the op-ed wouldn’t have served the campaign’s gun control message.

But the campaign was worried that Erica Garner would be offended if her dad was left out of the piece. Nick Merrill, Clinton’s traveling press secretary wrote in an email, “I know we have Erica Garner issues but we don’t want to mention Eric at all? I can see her coming after us for leaving him out of the piece.”

That didn’t sit well with Erica Garner.

But back to sausages.

The Germans traditionally love sausage, and they like to eat it accompanied by good bier. But decent Americans should reject the Clinton blood sausage. No amount of beer could dispel that “nasty” taste from their palates.

    who died in 2014 after being put in a police chokehold

    Can we stop saying this? It’s been pretty well shown that Garner was NOT choked (no damage to his esophagus or throat was present) to death, and he died because he was face-down after over-exerting himself as a terribly unhealthy man.
    (There is a difference between a “chokehold” and a “headlock” or “arm bar”.)

      If you want points for technical accuracy, fine, take them. I’m not a police officer and was only stating what the news article said.
      I’m standing by my main point: that Hillary Clinton is lowdown enough to make points off the dead. And only the dead that serve her anti-gun agenda.

      • GWB says:

        I consider it important not to repeat the obfuscations of the left, no matter what the overall point is. The death-by-chokehold bit is right up there with Gray’s death-by-“rough-ride” and “hands up, don’t shoot”, and all the “unarmed” folks.

        But, yes, your point about how low Hellary is, is very true.
