God, I hate Sanders on a political level but he should be allowed to speak at his venues without this derailing bullshit.

You're simplifying the fuck out of a really complicated political situation. Bernie Sanders and the progressives didn't start the BLM movement, but progressives did support them and provide them with support via social media and some protests.

And there's nothing wrong with them doing so being that the BLM movement was based on a real and important issue happening to people of color. It's only now that some radical wings of the movement have attacked those same allies. That's not the fault of progressives. That's the fault of those BLM protestors. Their issues are still real. The cause for which they fight is still one that progressives believe in, but they're now feeling betrayed by members of the movement.

Similar to how libertarians and moderate conservatives felt when far-right wing nuts hijacked their Tea Party movement and started attacking conservatives.

Who is "they"? I am genuinely confused. You didn't use a noun before you used the pronoun and I have no idea to whom you refer.

Nah, screw him. He's pushed white guilt from nearly the moment the announced his candidacy. Maybe a few of his young and naive followers will see that there's no placating blacks.

Wow! I am sorry, but what a bunch of pussies. These angry aggressive women butt into the even, disrupt it, start being super racists, ask the crowd to shut up for 4 fucking minutes and they all shut up and behave like good little sheep? I dare you to try to pull that off somewhere like Texas.

Why are they only disrupting Sanders when he is the candidate most likely to help them? He sure is getting a lot of press out of it, I don't think his speech would have gotten any mainstream media attention without it.

Because he's the only candidate that can't afford or isn't provided with a massive security detail.

This can only happen if the event organizers are complicit with it. The real question is why Sanders keeps participating in events that are run by people looking to trap him. He needs to fire his campaign manager. Whoever is doing that job has fucked him over twice now by not doing his homework.

I think he is trying to avoid giving these radicals what they want, which is to be arrested. There should have been a point however, when they were escorted off the stage and to their cars.

As someone who regularly works on campaigns and in political positions, that's not true. People who organize these things care a lot about the candidate and the staff wouldn't just put their candidate in that position- especially to be attacked by "political allies". Thankfully those doing the attacking shot themselves in the foot, but none of it was on purpose.

Seems to me that Bernie agrees with their divisive racial rhetoric, which is why he keeps letting them co-opt his events. After all, he's the one who says things like "as a nation, we need to apologize for slavery" as if we don't already do so every day of our lives. He's fully sold out to the SJW agenda.

If I were he, I think I'd run that risk. I mean this video shows pretty clearly that these people were out of line. And it would be some free PR tbh. I'd kick those fucks out of my gig and do Fox news the next day saying exactly why.

Because it would make the Sanders campaign look bad, like they're trying to silence the BLM movement. By doing what they did, they've won the argument. BLM went too far this time and the Sanders campaign let them walk off that cliff on their own. They, in no way, can now claim that the Sanders campaign was trying to marginalize them or shut them up. Politically, it was a brilliant move, though I doubt anyone realized it at the time.

When will you all wake up? Bernie is running for President on a platform that gives "the people" a way to battle the 1%. He is trying to help save America from being a cooperate run country (if it isn't already). It honestly doesn't matter if your republican or democrat this man is trying to fight for people. He is even willing to accept the term socialist to do it. No matter what I want to back a politician who has been nothing but honest and has a record of voting CONSISTENTLY with his campaign platform. The world doesn't need another promise of "Change" it actually needs somebody who embraces that and if you can't see that Bernie is running on the most unusual platform ever (besides Donald Trump) then you are not looking at what we have had in the past.

If that isn't enough for anyone than please look up all the "dirt" on Bernie Sanders since this campaign you will find the intrusion of blacklivesmatter to be the only thing the media can cook up on him while the other candidates are as clean as a pig in a slop bucket.

How about instead of going full socialist retard to solve the problem of our crony capitalist state, we actually scale back the economic footprint of government so that large corporations have to compete fairly in the marketplace like everyone else? Nah... that would never work.

Repost. But I'll state here what I said in the other thread.

I think BLM was great when it first started out as a hashtag on twitter. Raising awareness about police misconduct and racial bias is cool. Shit like this, is not.

Edit: She says she shut down West Lake (which I assume to be a mall or something) and a Tree Lighting as if she were proud of disrupting community events.

There is no racial bias in law enforcement. Black people commit more crimes. There is nothing good about black lives matter. Its a bunch of racist, angry, violent, and irrational black people and white liberal faggots acting like spoiled kids.

[–] PaperEngines 5 points 2 points (+7|-5) ago 

So the fact that blacks and whites smoke weed at comparable rates, yet blacks are arrested more often due to racially motivated programs like stop and frisk doesn't signify a racial bias to you?

You're delusional.

In my experience there is more diversity in the South than in the North, and there is more racism in the North than in the South.
