Hillary rally interrupted by Black Lives Matter protesters
Hillary Clinton was planning to unveil her criminal justice reform plan at a rally in Atlanta yesterday, but protesters from Black Lives Matter had other ideas.
There is something truly pathetic in Hillary's whining, pleading, begging entreaties to the BLM group to let her speak. The monster that George Soros and other liberals have created is now turning on its promoters and biting them, and Clinton can't understand why her pandering isn't working with the BLM crowd.
Clinton pleaded with the group to listen to her policy proposals.
“Now, ladies and gentlemen, I have some — I have some issues to discuss and some proposals to make,” she said. “If our friends will allow me to do it, they may actually find them to their liking.”
Clinton supporters tried to drown out the protesters with chants of “Hillary!” and "Let her talk!"
The Democratic front-runner ignored the protests and tried to continue with her speech for several minutes.
Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.) and Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed went up on stage in a show of support to Clinton.
“Thank you all very much, I really appreciate it, and I appreciate the congressman and the mayor having my back,” Clinton said.
The protesters were eventually removed from the rally.
“So, I’m sorry, you know, I appreciate their passion, but I’m sorry they didn’t listen, because some of what they’ve been demanding, I am offering and intend to fight for as president,” she said.
When BLM disrupted a rally by Bernie Sanders, he too was perplexed as to why the black activists would turn on him. He couldn't understand their anger after all he had done to pander to the needs of black America. It would be comical if it weren't so pitiful.
Hillary can be grateful that the BLM protesters didn't include their signature chant: "Pigs in a blanket. Fry 'em like bacon." Hamstringing law enforcement might be a part of her criminal justice reform plan, but including that hateful chant would have been "bad optics."
