Revealed: a speaker in a video promoted by the Democratic National Convention turned out to be a stone-cold killer who served 27 years in prison.
Democrats debuted a video at their convention featuring Joe Biden and 11 politicians and activists reading the Preamble to the United States Constitution.
The video was meant to be inspiring. However, things quickly derailed when Fox News and other news outlets reported that one of the participants in the clip, Donna Hylton, served nearly three decades in prison for drugging, kidnapping, torturing, and eventually killing a 62-year-old New York real estate broker.
Although Hylton maintains her innocence, she was denied parole once and lost appeals in the New York Supreme Court, Appellate Division in 1991, and in the US District Court for the Southern District of New York in 2007.
Jill Neimark interviewed Hylton for the July 1, 1995 edition of Psychology Today, writing that Hylton haunted her from the instant she first laid eyes on her at the Bedford Hills Correctional Facility for Women. She also wrote of being sure that Hylton lied to her throughout the interview.
Hylton’s History With Leftists
Since her release from prison in 2012, Hylton has worked as an advocate for women’s rights, gender equality in prisons, and criminal justice reform.
Additionally, she quickly aligned herself with leftist politicians and activists, speaking out at various events. For example, she has appeared at Bernie Sanders’ Panel of Powerful Women event, was a speaker at the Women’s March in Washington, and attended the Global Citizen Festival in New York City.
Confronted by the facts, Lefty-Liberals will probably bring up Alice Johnson, who is speaking at the 2020 Republican National Convention about criminal justice reform.
Yes, Trump granted her clemency in 2018, but she was a grandmother who served 21 years as a first time offender for non-violent drug and money laundering convictions.
If that isn’t enough, President Obama handed out clemency to drug offenders like it was candy in the waning months of his presidency.
Liberal logic — gotta love it, or NOT!
