Clinton to call on Black Lives Matter at Dem convention

The mothers of several African-Americans killed by police or gun violence will be put in the spotlight at the Democratic National Convention.

The Mothers of the Movement will put presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s embrace of the Black Lives Matter movement at center stage.

It will also highlight a significant contrast with Donald Trump, the Republican presidential nominee who, at the GOP convention last week, embraced a “law and order” message that is implicitly critical of Black Lives Matter.

Indeed, two speakers at the Republican National Convention, both African-Americans themselves, offered scathing assessments of Black Lives Matter, arguing it has been a divisive presence in public life.

  • That’s her constituency.

    • She’s trying to prevent being shouted down.

        She can only operate in an echo chamber.

    She’s handing the election to Trump.

      It’s not over until it’s over. We should never forget that Hillary is absolutely ruthless in her quest for power.

        And a large portion of the US electorate owes their standard of living to the governing DemoKKKrats.

    Hillary has quite literally gone to the Dark Side. Too funny. Especially when this petard explodes in her face, which it is BOUND to do.

    Hillary is asking for trouble come the debates starting in September.

      See, there’s your problem. You actually think she’ll take part in the debates. I foresee medical problems that will keep her from the debates but still allow her to run as President. Disgusting really.
