Legal commentator Nancy Grace is a loathsome scaremonger who makes her living seeking to undermine the American justice system by offering opinions about ongoing court cases in the most shrill and clownish fashion possible. But a video recently posted by a Reddit user illustrates just how ridiculously stupid it is for Americans to listen to anything that comes out of Grace’s mouth.
Grace claims that her experience as a government prosecutor makes her an expert about almost everything and often uses anecdotes from her days in the courtroom to support her view. Such is the case with the pundit’s recent fascination with the Nation’s softening stance on marijuana, a drug she recently said was responsible for making people “shoot each other, stab each other, strangle each other, drive under the influence, kill families — wipe out a whole family.”
But when Grace was spending most of her time and energy trying to turn the Nation against George Zimmerman, the man who shot the unarmed black teenager Trayvon Martin and was exonerated on self-defense, she had a different worldview. Back then, Grace argued that it made no difference that Martin had marijuana in his system when he died beyond providing more evidence that Zimmerman was a cold-blooded killer.
“To me it means that he is less likely to pick a fight with someone,” she said of Martin.
Watch Grace debate herself on the topic of marijuana:
A liberal agenda combined with a love of statism, it seems, can do funny things to a person.
