After Democratic presidential candidate Martin O’Malley was booed and heckled at the liberal Netroots Nation conference for saying “Black lives matter; white lives matter; all lives matter,” Glenn Beck’s radio co-hosts Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere were stunned.
“Did you ever think that you’d be in a country where someone would say ‘all lives matter’ and would be disagreed with?” Burguiere asked. “How is that controversial? It’s the least controversial thing that’s possible to say!”
That O’Malley later apologized for saying all lives matter, the two added, marks an “amazing moment in human history.”
“There have been many cases where countries have decided that not all lives matter. … Have any of those turned out well?” Burguiere asked. “When you make a decision as a society that all life doesn’t matter, you wind up really regretting that.”
“This is one of the two main political parties in the country,” Burguiere continued. “This is not some crazy group of — I mean, it is a crazy group — but this is supposed to be mainstream. And he can’t bring himself to say all lives matter?”
Gray noted that Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton was also criticized for saying “all lives matter” back in June.
“I mean, what kind of insane group of people is this?” Burguiere said. “You can’t say that people’s lives matter comfortably anymore?”
“It’s an insane group of people who have been running this country for six years now, going on seven,” Gray responded. “We’re getting what we voted for sadly. … We’re reaping the benefits right now. I don’t know how else to put it.”
When blacks scream that ‘black lives matter,” what they are dog whistling is that ”ONLY black lives matter.”
This is beyond believability. The left has jumped society’s shark.
Although this Netroots meeting only had O’Malley and Berny S. each saying “ALL lives matter,” at a historic black church in Missouri, the Christ the King United Church of Christ, a month ago Hillary Clinton said the exact same thing….ALL lives matter.
The result was instantaneous:
“With her statement that all lives matter, that blew a lot of support that she may have been able to engender here,” said Renita Lamkin, a pastor at the St. John AME Church in St. Charles.
So, it appears that the Dem Party has lost a huge chunk of their black voting block over this.
They won’t come out for Hillary, Bernie or O’Malley.
That could be the ballgame right there.
The left’s “chickens have come home to roost”. They’ve been so busy using identity politics to pit one group against another that now those groups can’t even play nice with each other.
Lesson: you don’t want to get between liberals and their racism… they don’t like it. Also, liberal candidates have to avoid getting out of pander mode. Why try to rationalize the moment with “all lives matter”? Just let the racists be racist.
White flight might be in order?
The politics of division that Obama has sowed is just beginning to bear it’s fruit. Such racist intolerance against the concept that “all lives matter” is just the beginning of the race wars that the Obamas are fueling.
