Democrats’ Awkward “Black Lives Matter” Moment

Published

OOPS …

|| By FITSNEWS || We have no use for the “Black Lives Matter” organization.  Or its not-so-black leader.  Or the not-so-black politicians seeking to exploit it.

Our view? #LifeMatters (born or unborn).

Color, creed, age, gender, orientation … those things do not matter.

Anyway …

In an effort to co-opt the “Black Lives Matter” movement for its own political advantage, the Democratic National Committee (DNC) recently approved a “solidarity” resolution aiming to align itself with the organization.

“The DNC joins with Americans across the country in affirming ‘Black lives matter’ and the ‘say her name’ efforts to make visible the pain of our fellow and sister Americans as they condemn extrajudicial killings of unarmed African American men, women and children,” the resolution stated.

The statement went on to name several of the group’s leaders – prompting the organization to issue a swift rebuke of the attempted courtship.

“We do not now, nor have we ever, endorsed or affiliated with the Democratic Party, or with any party,” the network’s leaders wrote on their Facebook page on Sunday. “The Democratic Party, like the Republican and all political parties, have historically attempted to control or contain black people’s efforts to liberate ourselves.  True change requires real struggle, and that struggle will be in the streets and led by the people, not by a political party.”

Interesting …

So does that mean they’re going the Louis Farrakhan route?

Truth be told, we agree 100 percent with “Black Lives Matter” when it says the two major political parties are worthless when it comes to promoting blacks’ best interests (financially or with regard to their individual liberties).

But we’ve said that before …

Again, #LifeMatters.  Doesn’t matter the color …
