Progressive racial fissure ruptures at Netroots Nation

I was wondering why #BernieSoBlack was trending this evening. Here’s why.

    Ha, ha, ha…

    The #blacklivesmatter people really need to update to #onlyblacklivesmatter

    White progressives will roll over, the rest of the world will #moveon and let the #POC try and convince #HRC that she can become #POTUS with just the black votes.

      They might just as well because they’re making it perfectly clear that’s what they mean.

      Hashtag Heaven or Hashtag Hell? Your choice. I stay away from the whole social media scene personally. Seems toxic from the get-go. Mobs don’t think.

      How about #blacklivesmatteronlywhenkilledbycops. Otherwise, not so much.

    Their “pets” are not content to remain as “pets”.
    What do the Dems do now?
    Admit the whole thing was a lie and a scam to beat Republicans over the head with?
    They were much to convincing, and now they have the tricky problem of their own side believing the agitprop.
    What to do, what to do?

  • The Occupy trash meets the ghetto bums. We have Obama to thank for that circus.

    Those ‘debaters of colour’ are definitely heavy-weight class. Unfortunately, their arguments …

    wow ,I have always suspected progressives of a paternalistic drive to speak for and think for any one of the isolated groups their policies have created. here is the moment one of those groups with shocking ingratitude to white progressives, takes over the agenda, it will probably end up like the women’s organizations that has had ethnic cleansing of all the middle class white women that thought they had invented feminism, they were driven out and only allowed to speak if asked.since then the movement has veered far left into feminazi areas ,I expect the same with the democrats they will lose huge chunks of support .and veer so far into race baiting and reparations territory that they will no longer matter.

    CNN News did a piece on this hilarious event last evening (Sunday evening, July 19). It was funny watching the Democratic candidates squirm in the face of the ultra-racist “only black lives matter” crowd. When O’Malley blurted out out “all lives matter”, and gets booed, one sees how racist the “black lives matter” really is.

    “Black lives matter” is a front for organized crime.

    No wonder this organization is nicknamed “nutroots.”

  • Hard Little Machine

    So who are black people and progressives going to vote for? Anyone? No one?

    My life matters and I will govern myself accordingly.

    I suspect that I am far from the only one who believes this about themselves.
