First, we have to ask ourselves: What has Barack Obama (as a black president) and Eric Holder (as a black U.S. attorney general) accomplished for the African-American community over the past 7 years — meaning, what did they do to reform the criminal judicial system, local law enforcement agencies and the state prison systems?
And, if much of anything, did they do more or less than what Bill and Hillary Clinton may have accomplished when they had wielded the reins of power?
And why is a progressive social Democrat and presidential candidate named Bernie Sanders being targeted by an antagonistic group of protesters who call themselves "Black Lives Matter"? And why hasn't this same group of "protesters" not also targeted "Third Way" pro-corporate Democrats such as Hillary Clinton and President Obama in the same mean-spirited and hostile manner?
What is it that Senator Bernie Sanders has NOT done for the Black community over the past several decades (and also while in Congress) that President Obama, Eric Holder and Hillary Clinton may have done to better the lives of black Americans? And why would the group "Black Lives Matters" only target Bernie Sanders, but not Hillary Clinton?
The answer might be very simple. Taxes. Bernie would tax rich billionaires like George Soros, who funds "Black Lives Matters" — just like Bernie would tax big corporate outlets such as Fox News and MSNBC — including their wealthy CEOs and talking heads. Whereas, more than likely Hillary Clinton wouldn't raise their taxes (although she SAYS she might, but only says so to get our populist votes).
This morning I had heard on CNN's "State on the Union" that the group "Black Lives Matter" had again interrupted Senator Bernie Sanders during a speech at a campaign rally in Seattle. So I did a Google search for "Bernie Sanders Black Lives Matter" — and the very first search result led me to a story by the Washington Post:
"Bernie Sanders came to Seattle on Saturday with plans to give two speeches. The first didn’t happen. An appearance by the senator from Vermont at an event celebrating the anniversary of Social Security and Medicare was scuttled after protesters from a local Black Lives Matter chapter took over the stage. Hours later, Sanders, who has been drawing bigger crowds than any other presidential contender, drew his largest yet: about 15,000 at the college basketball arena where the Washington Huskies play."
Not long ago when the group Black Lives Matter interrupted Senator Bernie Sanders at a Netroots convention, I wrote in a post title Hillary Clinton Operatives Infiltrate Netroots Convention:
"One might wonder why a small group of people would want to rudely interrupt interviews with two of the very people who would advocate on behalf of the African-American population — and who might be the most likely to support their causes. It would seem a bit counter-productive to their ambitions."
Then upon hearing this morning that this same group had rudely interrupted Bernie Sanders once again, I thought to myself: "Clinton operatives really ARE trying to sabotage Bernie Sanders' presidential campaign. And it's probably because he is the only real serious challenger to Hillary's campaign — and the Clintons are very notorious for their dirty political tricks. (Politically ambitious people that run only for themselves, and can't be trusted.) From Mother Jones:
"[Senator] Bumpers was critical of their character and political future, dismissing them as 'manic ambitious' and 'manic obsessed' and alleging that Bill Clinton's gubernatorial campaign had resorted to 'dirty tricks.' "
Hillary was also accused of using dirty tricks during her last presidential campaign. So I began to think to myself: "The Clinton's are up to their old dirty tricks again — or that maybe (but maybe not directly), her political campaign supporters may be doing her dirty work for her (so that she can always claim "plausible deniability").
Out of curiosity, I did another Google search for "George Soros Hillary Clinton" — and the very first search result was an article from Breitbart.Com which reported that the New York hedge fund billionaire George Soros was among the biggest donors to a super PAC backing Democrat Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.
Then I did another Google search for "George Soros Black Lives Matter" — and the very first search result was an article from the WashingtonTimes.Com which reported that George Soros gave millions of dollars to this group.
The second result for this same search showed another article, which was also by the WashingtonTimes.Com, which reported that George Soros had also funded the Ferguson protests. The DailyMail.Com also ran a story on this, reporting that George Soros spent $33 million bankrolling Ferguson demonstrators to create an "echo chamber" and drive national protests.
The third search result showed an article titled: Black Lives Matter protesters shut down Bernie Sanders rally in Seattle.
NewsBusters.com had noted that Bill O'Reilly at Fox News had reported: "So, who's funding Black Lives Matter? One of the big donors seems to be George Soros, our old pal, who gives big money to affiliates of Black Lives Matter, groups that do direct business with them." (Read through this article and follow all the links for some enlightening background. Even black reporters on ESPN were getting heat for saying "All lives matter.")
The so-called mainstream liberal media (such as MSNBC) is not reporting these incidents in the same way as other media outlets because the so-called "left-leaning" cable news stations and the so-called "liberal" media outlets seem to support Hillary Clinton (as opposed to Senator Bernie Sanders) — and MSNBC (and their talking heads) gives air time and a lot of favorable coverage to the group Black Lives Matter — the group that's backed by Hillary Clintons's super-rich supporter, George Soros.
The 3-minute video below is of Bill O'Reilly on Black Lives Matters and how it's being funded by Geroge Soros — which is followed by some highlights from the Black Lives Matter protesters interrupting Bernie Sanders most recent speech. The protesters were already waiting in the very front row of the podium, and immediately stood up and physically stormed the stage as soon as Senator Sanders began to speak (Hillary would most likely have had more security and Secret Service personnel to keep them away).
IMHO, the protesters were not only "disruptive", but were very rude, disrespectful and very openly hostile. They were despicable. They got right in Senator Bernie Sanders' face and threatened to shut down his rally. (They were very unreasonable, angry, loud and hysterical).
Will these militant protesters ever treat Hillary Clinton the exact same way?
The people who had attended the rally to actually hear Bernie Sanders speak (and not to Black Lives Matter) were very unhappy with these protesters/paid political operatives after they had forced the rally to shut down. So in essence, the billionaire Geoge Soros had silenced Senator Bernie Sanders — the very man who would raise taxes on billionaires like George Soros.
If this group of radical Black Panther-like protesters loses support from "the Left" (those who are actually trying to help the Black community), then who will they turn to if Hillary loses the 2016 presidential election? Does Black Lives Matters think Ted Cruz, Scott Walker or Rand Paul will have their backs?
Black Lives Matter, with their current tactics, will turn many of their previous supporters against them by attacking people like Bernie Sanders. And this is the direct result of the billionaire George Soros, a wealthy plutocrat, who that, by having HIS own way — will in the process, undermine our democracy.
Update: I just heard on CNN (@ 12:10 PM PST) a host ask the guest if Bernie Sanders was being specifically targeted by Black Lives Matters, and the guest answered "no" --- because CNN also prefers Hillary over Bernie. It's all about taxes.
