“We honor black lives by doing the unthinkable, the unapologetic, and the unrespectable.”Black Lives Matter statement
|Alan Berner/Seattle Times|
Incredibly thuggish and stupid move by the Black Lives Matter people in Seattle, who took the microphone from Bernie Sanders and commandeered his political event, ultimately not letting him speak. It must be a concerted national strategy because it's not the first time it has happened.
Why would you cannibalize the one guy out there that is most likely to help your cause? Why not try your little act at a Ted Cruz or Jeb rally? And all the people booing you are white liberal supremacists? Really?
And I hate to be a language killjoy but unrespectable is not a word. You just can't make up new words as you see fit and not look like stupid a-holes. Please stop torturing the english language.
And Bernie, if a couple of two bit revolutionaries can knock you off your perch this easily, how the hell do you think you can run our country? Maybe it's time to go home, prop your feet up on the ottoman and get a warm glass of milk.
I was interested in the reactions to the kerfuffle like the NAACP guy.
Gerald Hankerson, president of the Seattle King County NAACP, said he was “torn” by the protest. Hankerson spoke at the Westlake rally and led the crowd at one point in a chant of “Black Lives Matter.”Sorry Gerald, you don't bust the door down and then expect people to listen to your message. It's called manners and civility. Nobody wants to listen to people who can't play nice and you will possibly find yourselves without any friends whatsoever.
But he said he was surprised at how hostile some in the liberal crowd were to the protesters.
“I know they were there to hear Bernie, but what was missed was the message of these two women,” Hankerson said. “I would have loved to have seen Bernie respond to what they wanted.”
Congratulations BLM, on shooting yourselves in the feet and losing whatever credibility and legitimacy you may have once had, if any.
