Bernie Sanders Shut Down By Screeching #BlackLivesMatter Protesters

Because civility or something

(Seattle Times) A Seattle speech by Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders was pre-empted in a chaotic confrontation Saturday afternoon with a pair of Black Lives Matter protesters, who took the stage and refused to let him speak.

The Vermont senator, who has drawn huge crowds around the country, was to be the star attraction and final speaker for a rally at Westlake Park to celebrate the 80th birthday of Social Security and the success of other anti-poverty programs.

He received a much better, and civil, reception later on, in front of a group of 15,000 hardcore Progressives

As the crowd stomped and cheered, Sanders pledged to fight for a full menu of progressive policies, including 12 weeks of paid leave for new parents, a federal minimum wage of $15 an hour, and an end to unequal pay for women.

“This is not utopian dreaming,” Sanders said. “This is the country we can create if we are prepared to stand together.”

At Westlake, Sanders was just starting to address the crowd, thanking Seattle for being “one of the most progressive cities in the United States of America.”

That’s as far as he got before two women walked onstage and grabbed the microphone.

“If you do not listen … your event will be shut down,” one of the protesters told organizers, who offered to let them speak after Sanders. After a back and forth with the screaming protesters, organizers relented and said the demonstrators could go first.

Here’s the funniest part

Some in the largely white audience booed and chanted for protesters to let the senator talk. A few yelled for police to make arrests.

Marissa Johnson, one of the protesters, shot back, “I was going to tell Bernie how racist this city is, filled with its progressives, but you did it for me,” accusing the audience of “white supremacist liberalism.” She cited Seattle’s own police problems, including an ongoing Justice Department consent decree over use of force.

Seattle’s crime rate is nothing to brag about, being a 4 (100 being the safest), but, this is primarily due to the high property crime rate, double the national rate. The average murder rate (it’s strange to write that) is 19 a year. Compare that to other liberal cities which have way more than that every single month. Such as Baltimore. And, boy howdy, is Seattle White. 69.5%, per the last census. And only 7.9% Black. And is most assuredly very, very Liberal. Draw your own conclusions.

And hit the link to watch the video, and listen to the screeching from these rude protesters.

The activists demanded 4½ minutes of silence in memory of Brown, to symbolize the 4½ hours his body lay on a Ferguson street. While rally organizers raised their hands in support, some in the crowd yelled profanities.

August 9th is the “anniversary” of the shooting of Michael Brown. Many, many liberal media outlets are running stories about the timeline, and the results, and reflecting on the meaning and such. Few are coming to the proper conclusion, namely that one should not perform a strongarm theft of cheap cigars, don’t assault a store clerk, don’t be an idiot by walking in the middle of the street after robbing a store, don’t assault a duly sworn police officer in his car, don’t try and take his service weapon, don’t run away after the weapon goes off, then decide to charge back at the officer.  Furthermore, your compatriot shouldn’t lie to law enforcement and the media (why is Dorian Johnson not in jail?). Don’t be involved in crime, don’t resist arrest, don’t assault law officers.

Of course, in reality, the #BlackLivesMatter movement doesn’t really care about all Black lives, just ones when they are killed by White police officers. Granted, some of the killings were not justified. That happens with whites, too, we just don’t hear about it on the news. When it comes to the huge Black on Black crime rate, what is called “Black in origin”, these #BlackLivesMatter folks are pretty quiet. Where’s the outrage over the huge murder and shootings rates in 65% Black Baltimore, where the majority of those shot and killed are Black?

But, in Seattle, they did get one thing right: Liberalism is very bad for Blacks. All one needs to do is look at high crime rates among Blacks in Democratic run cities, look at the poverty rates, look at the education rates, the economic conditions, the collapse of property values, and so much more. Look at how the Democratic Party panders and patronizes Blacks, then pushes them into ghettos. Of course, Blacks need to look inwards, and wonder why they put up with this.

    Teach can you point out any laces where conservatives have helped improve the living conditions of Blacks?
    And how about an updaye on your prediction that the raising of the minimum wage in Seattle was going to be a job killer?
    Last time I checked they looked like they were doing pretty well
    Perhaps you might use Ferguson as a place where conservative government has improved the lives of Blacks?
    Teach the shooter of Brown under oath at the Grand Jury said “he looked like a black demon”
    For the last 100 years Blacks in the USA have fled conservative areas where they often were lynched and lived in extreme poverty for cities.
    Also Teach perhaps you don’t know BUT rural (non metro) areas have HIGHER poverty rates . The rural poverty rate for Blacks is 25% HIGHER. Also social services are much better in cities this is the reason that the rural population is declining. http://www.dailyyonder.com/ruralurban-poverty-gap-narrows/2011/09/19/3526\
    Of course the great white father even unknowing about these facts seems to believe that HE not them know what is best for them. Really Teach how about this for a simple way to bring Blacks out of poverty: send all their kids to extremely expensive elite boarding schools. THAT would certainly give them a leg up

  2. Teach can you point out any laces where conservatives have helped improve the living conditions of Blacks?

    Notice how John deflects from the point that Blacks do pretty poorly within Liberal areas?

    And how about an updaye on your prediction that the raising of the minimum wage in Seattle was going to be a job killer?

    You should do some research, because….nope, not going to do it, John was deflecting further.

    Perhaps you might use Ferguson as a place where conservative government has improved the lives of Blacks?

    Ferguson is a very liberal city in a very liberal county. Check the voting rates, John.

    Teach the shooter of Brown under oath at the Grand Jury said “he looked like a black demon”

    Let’s put that in context

    After grappling, during which Officer Wilson was in his marked police car and Mr Brown was standing outside, the policeman managed to reach his pistol. The gun failed to go off twice, before Officer Wilson successfully discharged the weapon.

    Immediately afterwards, Officer Wilson described seeing blood on his hand and looking up at Mr Brown who had stepped back from the vehicle.

    “And then after he did that, he looked up at me and had the most intense aggressive face. The only way I can describe it, it looks like a demon, that’s how angry he looked.”

    Huh. Changes you nonsensical talking points.

    For the last 100 years Blacks in the USA have fled conservative areas where they often were lynched and lived in extreme poverty for cities.

    Areas which are now Conservative/Republican, but, back when the Great Migration started, of Blacks to cities, and especially northern cities, those areas were run by Democrats. Democrats took over the Big Cities, and Blacks are still living under the oppression of Democrats.

    Also Teach perhaps you don’t know BUT rural (non metro) areas have HIGHER poverty rates

    Yet, they have better lives, and aren’t killing, stabbing, and shooting each other at a high rate. They’re not stealing from each other heavily, they aren’t rioting and looting and committing arson. Those are things that happen in Democratic Party run areas.

    Notice that John never once stated that he is disgusted by all the Black in origin violence, that he actually cares about what Blacks are doing to each other, nor that he is dismayed by the deplorable conditions Blacks endure in the mostly Democratic Party run cities. I wonder why? Could it be that he is a racist? He certainly supports abortion on demand, which effects Blacks way more than any other race. He seems to support a reduction in policing in minority areas, which leads to more crime. It’s almost like he wants Blacks kept down.

    Yep, dem niggerz be crazy.

    But seriously conservatives – Do you really think that Blacks are too stupid to vote their own self-interest?

    They vote for liberals because conservatives have a habit and history of trying to annihilate them.

  5. That’s what you’ve convinced them of, but, it primarily Democrats who held black people down, who instituted Jim Crow and segregation, who voted against the Civil Rights acts, who passed community blocks on real estate purchases, etc and so on, and now preside over horrific conditions in Democratic Party run cities.

    You can falsely cast blame, but, who runs your cities where Blacks are killing each other non-stop?

  6. jl says:

    “Do you really think blacks are too stupid to vote their own self-interest?” No, they vote for the party that promises them free shit by perpetuating their victimhood. “Conservatives have a habit and history of trying to annihilate them.” Really, “annihilate”?

    So you think Blacks are so weak-minded that they’re brainwashed by white liberals? Blacks vote for Democrats because that’s where liberalism resides these days. If the new Republicans changed their ways and started supporting the working classes, assuring voting rights for minorities, education, healthcare, stopping blowing the wealthy etc… i.e., become liberals, Black Americans would change their allegiance.

    The new GOP is the party of the wealthy and their minions – they pay lip service to Caucasian, Christian, straight, conservatives to secure their vote.

    Republicans are either billionaires or suckers. Check your bank account to know which you are.
