Bernie Sanders backs away from campaign's apology to #blacklivesmatter
The Soros-funded #blacklivesmatter movement is a big problem for the Democrats, and Bernie Sanders just stumbled over it. Failure to grovel risks dampening the extraordinary black turnout necessary for Democratic victories in many states. But excessive groveling (say, apologizing for saying, “All lives matter,” as Martin O’Malley did) makes the candidate look like a PC wuss, nobody to entrust the nation’s security with.
Appearing on Meet the Press, Bernie Sanders in effect pleaded incompetence as a leader for his campaign’s apology letter that made its way to Buzzfeed. Amber Ferguson reports in the Huffington Post:
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) says he was not the person who sent an apology email to Black Lives Matter activists and believes an apology is unnecessary.
During an appearance on NBC's "Meet the Press," the Democratic presidential hopeful was asked about the apology email that BuzzFeed obtained.
"Well, that was sent out by a staffer, not by me," Sanders responded. "Look, we are reaching out to all kinds of groups, absolutely ... But on this issue of Black Lives Matter, let me be very clear. The issue that they are raising is a very, very important issue. And there is no candidate for president who would be stronger in fighting against institutional racism, and by the way, reforming a broken criminal justice system."
Sanders stressed the need for "real changes" to the system before "MTP" host Chuck Todd raised the question again.
"You said a staffer put it out, but you felt an apology was necessary?" Todd asked.
"No, I don't," Sanders said. "I think we're going to be working with all groups. This was sent out without my knowledge."
So Bernie is running an organization that he doesn’t effectively manage. Is this kind of hand we want on the tiller of the ship of state?
The underlying reality not mentioned by Ferguson is that the Sanders campaign is, by Democrat standards, unacceptably lacking in…uh…diversity. In the Democrat playbook, any crowd that is nearly all-white is by definition racist. And Sanders rallies are almost whiter than KKK gatherings.
Curiously, Hillary Clinton hasn’t been targeted by #blacklivesmatter, but maybe Soros is one of the billionaires behind her candidacy. Certainly, the accepted wisdom is that Hillary has the backing of the race hustlers and counts on black turnout in the primaries lying ahead.
So Bernie is trying to have it both ways. He didn’t apologize, but he’s going to be a crusader for racial justice.
Don’t expect the Huffington Post, Chuck Todd, or almost anyone else in the MSM to acknowledge the extent to which black anti-Semitism affects the Sanders campaign. The gospel that must not be contradicted is that black people are incapable of racism.
