In June, Hillary Clinton suggested the unthinkable. While visiting a black community church in Florissant, MO, she asserted that, in fact, “All lives matter.”
The backlash (or blacklash) was immediate, because leftist race-bait political hustlers claim exclusive rights over whose lives matter, and any Democrat who dares suggests anything other than “black lives matter” is subject to immediate reprimand.
After hearing Clinton’s remark, Rev. Renita Lamkin concluded, “That blew a lot of support that she may have been able to engender here.”
The sound bite “black lives matter” was born alongside the “hands up, don’t shoot” mantra after a black Ferguson thug was shot by a white police officer, and the St. Louis County Prosecutor (a Democrat) determined the shooting was justifiable self defense.
No matter. Political agendas trump facts, and the dishonest and disgraceful “hands up” myth persists to this day.
Last weekend, Democrat presidential contender Martin O'Malley, the former governor of the People’s Republic of Maryland, made the same egregious mistake at this year’s Netroots Nation convention of “progressive” political activists.
O'Malley’s address to the gathering was interrupted by attendees shouting, “Black lives matter!” He responded: “Black lives matter. White lives matter. All lives matter.”
Oops! The audience was rendered apoplectic — how could a “Nutroots” regular make such an appalling mistake?
