If you have been paying attention you know that only “black lives matter.” There’s a hashtag and a stringent set of rules. White, brown, blue or any other color lives don’t matter and to suggest otherwise is incredibly racist. Old lady Hillary Clinton likes to pretend to be current and tech savvy, but she apparently doesn’t know the set of laws. She made a serious faux pas on Tuesday by saying that “all lives matter” and she did it inside the hallowed walls of a black church.
Clinton was continuing her pointless campaign of wooing black voters, like they are suddenly going to vote Republican, in a church near the Ferguson, MO black-epicenter of America. She spoke in her usual vague terms of saying something had to be done about racism without saying what she’d actually do, when those fateful words came out of her mouth.
The comment happens at around the 8:30 mark of the video. Clinton is telling an anecdote about her mother that is probably a lie when she says, “All lives matter.”
Now this is a “problem” as Mediaite points out because:
#AllLivesMatter went viral shortly after #BlackLivesMatters to emphasis racial unity, rather than the division some people– especially conservatives– thought was attached to the latter hashtag. But some on the left consider “all lives matter” a “microagression” that diminishes the focus on racial injustice.
Microaggression nothing. Black Twitter had a collective freak-out. Here’s a sampling (quoted not imbedded):
Hillary Clinton talked about institutionalized racism then hit an “All lives matter.” I can’t make this shit up lmao
I wish Hillary Clinton would realize the violence and erasure behind the reactionary “All Lives Matter” BS. Or maybe she does.
To say “All Lives Matter” in a black church less than a week after Charleston is, I have to say, pretty violent and despicable
Hillary Clinton really and truly said “All lives Matter” OMG SHE HAS TO BE ONE OF THE DUMBEST POLITICIANS THIS NATION HAS EVER PRODUCED
Okay, I agree with that last one, but for different reasons. Now here are some of my favorites courtesy of Twitchy:
she. ain’t. getting. my. damn. vote. ffffffffffffuuuuuuuuucccccckkk. that. Shit
I wish we could just skip the election.
If she didn’t get a “no” from me before, she sure does now.
which is why she won’t get my vote.
So if I am to understand this correctly, these black people will not be voting for Hillary Clinton because they think her saying “all lives matter” is racist. Are they going to vote GOP in 2016? I wonder if they realize that Republicans say “racist” things like “people should be responsible for their own actions” and “everyone should be treated equally.”
Hillary said a lot of really stupid things in her speech but this was actually one of the few non-cringe-worthy utterances she made. Be offended at her pandering. Get outraged over her suddenly leftist progressive positions. Tune out because she’s completely full of sh*t. There are so many other reasons to dislike her besides the fact that she said all human life is precious.
