Wow, he is a complete pussy. Newsflash: this movement hates you because of the color of your skin, Bernie, and no amount of kowtowing will change that!

Way to bite on Huffpost's Shillary supporting hit piece on Bernie. The gal he hired was in the process of being interviewed weeks ago and the BLM crap isn't related. Before chomping on the propaganda, you should consider the source. Huffpo is a far left, SJW fest of limousine liberals in bed with the 1%. They couldn't be more slanted than Fox News, just the other wingnut direction.

Of course they're going to pull bullshit articles like this up because they need to carry dirty water for Shillary. Fucking d'uh people.

You're confusing the title of this submission with the article itself. The article does not associate her with BLM and explicitly states that she was being interviewed for weeks. The submitter of this article added on the bullshit about BLM and bowing to pressure.

I think Bernie just want's to move on and discuss about more important problems, rather than having people dwell onto something unproductive.

You'd have to tell that to the unthinking - but still voting - masses asses.

Dwell on the fact that he's a pussy?

If Sanders had used this moment to distinguish his old-fashioned inclusive economically-focused leftism from the new racist SJW left he might have earned my respect. But nope.

It could be that he has sympathy for their cause but hadn't approved if their methods. He is a civil rights guy.

Bernie has always been a cuck fag, that's why he is always saying stupid shit like "White people need to apologize for slavery". Bernie is a SJW and always has been.

Is this really bowing to recent pressure? He has had views that the Black Lives Matter Movement should be supporting. His views have not changed. I feel like this is more just trying to get gain support from a movement rather than be viewed as the opposition for some reason (probably because he looks old and white) by certain individuals within the black lives matter movement.

Well they've for some reason decided to focus on him as some sort of scapegoat, which is totally misdirected. I'm totally against police brutality and everything, but this 'Black Lives Matter' group comes across as idiotic, unorganised, and racist.

To say it is unorganized is the only thing I fully agree with. I mean this came out fairly quickly after the interruption of Sanders.

I have no idea why he hired the person but he did put out this which is what I think a lot of people wanted. However, the interrupter made a facebook post and called him useless so I'm not sure what she was exacting aiming for.

Then the problem is with the racists within the movement. If he can't speak openly about the idiocy that went on yesterday and why those particular types of people are a cancer to progress for everyone, then he doesn't have my respect at all.

The author, Igor Bobic, is writing click-bait. As his own article says;

Edit: more accurately, the submitter is distorting and sensationalizing.

Though Symone Sanders began to interview for the position several weeks ago, her hiring suggests the campaign is working to attune itself more closely with the cause of Black Lives Matter protesters,

Symone Sanders is not one of the women who interrupted Bernie Sanders.She's associated with the Coalition on Juvenile Justice, not with BLM.

It's not "bowing to pressure" when the Sanders campaign has been interviewing her for weeks.

Edit: I did a little research:this same article, with the exact same distorted headline, was posted in the /v/Niggers sub by a user named "J3w1sh_Neocon" whose flair in that sub is a virulently antisemitic caricature: https://voat.co/v/Niggers/comments/395285

Who else did he interview and what were their qualifications? The article doesn't say he choose that woman weeks ago it says she was interviewed weeks ago. Which could mean others were also interviewed for the same position and he could have choose this woman because of the recent events. I actually think Sanders would hire someone based on race to show how diverse he is instead of hiring the best person for the job. Not saying she wasn't the best person for this job either but you have to keep an open mind. He is a politician. He is not a saint.

The truth is, Sanders will need black votes to win the primary. Hillary has long-standing connections to the black Democratic Establishment politicians. It's necessary fr Sanders to reach out to black voters, so it's hardly surprising Symone Sanders was already shortlisted.

Bowing or being smart. He needs african american votes. Plus the people who disturbed his speech don't speak for all members of black lives matter.

Being both smart and genuine. I think everyone is forgetting that prior to the first interruption in Arizona, Sanders had set aside time to talk to the local BLM group. He canceled those plans after they took over the stage and abused both O"Malley and himself. It was the right move at the time. They, like the women in Seattle were not looking for solutions. They were and are looking to escalate the problems and cash in in some way, be it fame or actual cash, we don't know.

Sanders on the other had believes in a equal society. I am sure it was always his intention to have minority advisors. Being a thoughtful man, he was probably waiting for his movement to mature before making selections and growing his paid staff. His choice may be a voice in the BLM movement. It would make sense considering her background and her work with kids. It is not however, fair to compare a this well educated, professional with the emotionally challenged bullies who took over the stages in Arizona and Seattle.

If you haven't read well, the title is misleading. Sanders had been interviewing her for weeks, she hasn't been suddenly hired to calm the BLM movement.

I thought this as well. It's just that the chunk of his audience - which thinks he's opposing them - needs better marketing to. And this is it, it's marketing for those who don't read his history or understand his key ethical beliefs. Since this audience subscribes to the rest of what MSM is publishing, Bernie needs to move hard on the topic.

Soros + hillary influence?

Or BLM just being dumb and using the crowd?

Most likely because they knew that the Bernie supporters would listen to what they had to say and that Bernie would not get the police involved. It's important to know that the BLM movement isn't so much a centralized organization, its more of a mixed group with similar ideas. Two people can't possibly express the attitudes of the whole organization because for the most part it it isn't one.
