please just stop it.

I doubt very much that HRC is behind the BLM attacks on Bernie. And there is no evidence to support that claim. Soros funding of BLM is not evidence.

There are many possible reasons why BLM is targeting Sanders. And no, it's not just Seattle. For one thing, he's accessible. He attracts large crowds. He's a white male. Can you even imagine the shit storm that would occur if BLM reps tweeted under the hash tag "BowDownHillary"? Those activists targeting Bernie almost surely know that there is a huge reservoir of goodwill for HRC within the black community. Bernie doesn't have that. He's a new figure for most of the black community.

Do these attacks benefit HRC? Sure, but that's not her fault, nor does she have any obligation to come to his defense. Personally, I think she'd benefit from doing so and that it would be the right thing to do, but as I said, she has no obligation to do so.

12. All across Social Media Hillary IS being blamed so rightly or wrongly

that is the reality of the actions of these protesters.

What it has done is to cause great concern over Sanders' safety.

He needs security whether he wants it or not.

And yes, until proven otherwise, I am one of those who suspect this to be a dirty Rovian trick to try to undermine the only candidate who is a threat to the preferred candidates of the Status Quo.

So whatever their intentions, that is the reality and I will not be TOLD what to think by anyone.

Hillary needs to address this now IF her campaign is not responsible.

No Senator should be approached in such a threatening and hostile manner, for ANY reason.

And all candidates need to distance themselves from this kind of hostile, threatening behavior towards ANY other candidate.

As Bernie defended Hillary from the Media's attempt to get him to slam her for her use of the phrase 'all lives matter' they now need to step up and condemn this kind of threatening behavior by anyone towards a US Senator.

about that. Now what should be done to STOP the perception that this is a campaign tactic because just trying to dismiss it, isn't working at all.

I have offered a solution. Hillary's campaign needs to assure the public that they had nothing to do with it and condemn such behavior towards any candidate.

25. Facts are facts. No one should ever have supported these tactics from the beginning.

But they did and now it has escalated to the point where a US Senator was threatened with 'shutting down all of your events'.

Now people are concerned for his safety.

And the fact is, whether you like it or not, since Hillary's supporters were completely on board with the last event, that this is what it is all about.

Perception is everything, and that is the growing perception. And dismissing it isn't going to change it.

Hillary can change it, by condemning such a hostile attack on a US Senator. But that's up to her.

110. What did she say that wasn't factual?

1. Sanders was targeted by BLM and now some of their members say they plan to disrupt all of his events.
2. Many on social media are saying that BLM are being stalking horses for the Clinton campaign (it really is all over Twitter and Facebook - I would link to it, but I don't want to drag people I don't know and who aren't members here into this conversation by linking to them. Just do a search for "Bernie Sanders" on Twitter and read for about half a minute - you'll see it). Sabrina didn't say that she believes that to be the case and she didn't say that it's true, what she said is that many "perceive" that to be true. And they do.
3. Bernie just defended HRC's treatment in the media, saying some of it was sexist. She should return the favor.

So, yes. What Sabrina said is factual.

The fact is many people are now associating this with her campaign. Last time people decided to let it go.

But when only one candidate becomes the target of this group, NOT Republicans NOT Hillary, people will think what they think. Nothing anyone can do about that.

There is no reality that anything came from the Clinton campaign.

And Bernie supporters are certainly not "the American people". They are just Bernie supporters.

BTW, Bernie supporters are making quite a name for themselves on the internet as being hostile and out-of-touch. Input such as yours and others on this website alone certainly makes clear how the bad rep is earned. Enjoy your new-found notoriety.

117. For Pete's sake, Sabrina did not say that it's true that

the BLM interruptions were planned by the Clinton campaign. What she said is that many people on social media believe that it did and that's a fact.

And not all of them are Bernie supporters. Some are just political junkies.

"Hostile" and "out-of-touch?" No.

But I do admit it makes me hostile when I ask a BLM member what their issue is with Sanders and they answer me by saying, "you don't understand." Well, duh. I wouldn't ask if I did, so why won't they tell us?

Your right, it really is hard for me and other Sanders supporters to understand how so many members of this movement don't know Sanders' history on Civil Rights. We don't understand how anyone can think Clinton's record is superior to Sanders on this issue when it's clearly not. They're right. We don't understand, but they won't tell us, either. If the goal is to talk about their issues, then they need to start talking and stop shouting over others at events.

120. Please. She's all over this thread saying that Clinton is responsible.

Clinton, Clinton's campaign, and even Clinton's supporters are all responsible. Even those who didn't supposedly speak out to protect Bernie are responsible. There are even posts implying there will be payback from Bernie supporters. All this to protect Bernie's image. Now think about how ridiculous all that sounds.

I have to shake my head at the rest of your post and just how out of touch it is. "Their concerns"...? Women and minorities are a large voting constituency of the Democratic party. "Their concerns" are OUR concerns as Democrats. See how that works?

And for cripes sake, even the GOP debate had a question about the BLM movement, calling it "the most important civil issue of our times" (I can find the exact question). If the GOP debates can address BLM even in passing, WHY can't Bernie supporters do the same?? It's really unbelievable.

That's why the anger really comes through as a concern over Bernie's image and, sorry, but his image is not a legitimate campaign issue.

Straight from the Right Wing Play Book. Accuse the other side of the 'wrong doing' of what your own side does negatively wrong first, so as your side will appear 'more' credible.

And the GOP even asked a question in their debates about BLM, so it's obviously acknowledged as a political force and powerful civil rights issue. I suppose Bernie supporters can continue attacking everyone and denying reality.

59. Your biased interpretations of what you read on social media aren't facts.

And let's get real: your concern for Bernie's "safety" is about his image.

And look at you saying in essence that it is Hillary's job to protect Bernie. How much more should she be doing for him? He's a grown man who can take care of himself.

Americans have a history of political assassinations; and there are a lot of armed(with all kind of weapons) crazy people in our country.

112. Let's put two and two together:

My post said the concern over protecting Bernie was really about his "image".

Your post said there was a history of armed political assassinations.

The people protesting Bernie were from BLM, so your implication was that Bernie was in danger from the BLM protestors. "Assassinations" was your word, even.

And pardon me if I laugh at you making this so deeply personal.

146. If you want to talk about ME this probably isn't the place. I prefer to stick to

the issues rather than personally attack other DUers.

So to take it back to the issue, everything is 'biased' in the view of someone.

The FACT is that when Hillary was under fire by AAs all over the internet, Bernie Sanders defended her to media talking heads. Following his lead, I did not link to the attacks on Hillary from AAs, I saw no point in USING this most important issue for political purposes.

Social Media is where millions of people go to discuss issues, and yes, this event is being attributed to Hillary's campaign, right or wrong. That is a fact, whether anyone likes it or not. I think that is happening because of how SOME of her supporters JUMPED on the last such event and wrongfully joined in what looked like a mob screaming 'racist' at a Senator who for his entire life fought for the rights of those who were not getting much help anywhere else.

I have no concerns about Bernie's image whatsoever, he is constantly gaining new supporters and drawing larger and larger crowds, he is now within 4 points of Hillary in NH. He is receiving donations from hundreds of thousands of Americans enabling him to run what is a very good campaign. That's not bad for someone who was virtually unknown just two and a half months ago.

I suppose I could make an attempt to read YOUR mind, but that would be a personal attack having nothing to do with anything of importance.

148. Your (mis)interpretations are not "facts." That is the point, and when

you ascribe your own biases, motives, and misinterpretations onto others, then you are inviting people to talk about those things you that you, yourself, brought up or accused others of. That's how it works.

Here's just one little statement, but your posts are riddled with these ballooning accusations and misinterpretations:

"And the fact is, whether you like it or not, since Hillary's supporters were completely on board with the last event, that this is what it is all about." From your post #25

1) Who decided "Hillary supporters" were "completely on board with the last event"? WTF does that even mean?? For instance, I didn't even see the NetRoots event until after it occurred, but your post states that everyone is on board...Really?? Ballooning accusations like that can't possibly be true, and they are not. They are simply your misinterpretations.

Anyway, you don't provide links to your supposed social media smoking guns, so I've Googled some of your many accusations, and the results don't match what you say. More misinterpretations, I suppose.

"I would only offer that anybody who thinks the way to get ANYONE to do ANYTHING is to heckle ANYONE is a complete and utter fool."
http://www.democraticunderground.com/10022950725#post44

Now that seems fairly absolute, total and complete. From the same thread:
"Question: How many times have you been moved to change your mind on any matter ... by someone yelling at you.

At some point, people MUST apply the reality of life to their bullshit.

IMHO ... Now is a good time to start."



Just your words, when it was gay people interrupting a political ally. Your views have grown so much since then, it seems you would be able to address others who have a hard time with disruptive tactics as you yourself formerly rejected them entirely and completely.

Maybe it's time for BLM to "evolve" as well, and realize Sanders is the candidate most likely to actually DO SOMETHING about the deplorable state of racial "justice" in America. I still support their cause but unless they start showing up at GOP events and using the same tactics they'll lose my support of their organization. Right now, they're just screwing themselves by acting like children. Personally, I think they (or anyone else trying to get action from DC) would do well to get 500,000 or so supporters to surround the White House and camp there until they get some results. I believe this tactic would work for Single Payer/Campaign Finance Reform/Police Brutality/etc... "Occupy" didn't invent this tactic, it's been used before and was quite effective. If done with President Obama still in office I'd bet some very real results would be forthcoming.

108. The poster said "Hillary gets the blame. Sorry" By 8 o'clock last night anyone who was watching

social media knew that was true. The poster did not say Hillary did it. She said the she is getting the blame.

Hillary is well aware that she shoulders the blame for things she really did and many other things she did not. She now needs to deflect the blame - which is what the poster is saying.

Early yesterday I posted a statement that Hillary needs to protect Bernie's back on this issue so that she is so busy protecting him that no one can think she had time to do anything like this.

Plus IMO if anyone is pulling this kind of dirty trick it is much more likely to be the corporations and banksters who stand to lose if Bernie wins or even if he is able to build a coalition that will fight for his issues win or lose.

when she made her 'all lives matter' statement in a Black Church and was being fiercely criticized by AAs for doing so. When one of the Corporate Media 'journalists' tried to get Bernie to join in the attacks, he actually became ANGRY and stated very forcefully that he would NOT be attacking Hillary based on this, he was so adamant that the talking head let it go.

He didn't need to do that, he could have taken the political advantage that was being to him on a plate, and made some passive aggressive statement like 'well, Hillary I'm sure will educate herself about this issue' but because he has integrity, he refused to do that.

Do you really want us to start judging everyone guilty until they prove themselves innocent? Because that's what you're saying. I don't know about you, but I would hope that here on DU, the person has to be proven guilty by their accusers first, with solid facts, not have to prove themselves innocent to anyone who accuses.

Because in the end, there is no way to prove one's innocence to someone is intent on believing you are guilty. You can show them pictures and video that you weren't at the scene of the crime and they'll still say, "You sent someone to do it for you." If you want to believe this connection is there, you will. But don't try and convince me or anyone else that the connection exists simply because there is no proof that it doesn't exists. It is up to the accuser to prove it true, not up to the accused to prove it false. And a good thing, too. If you were accused of this...how would you feel about someone insisting that no proof doesn't excuse you of the crime?

Monsanto's control over our food supply. You have stalked me for months obsessively because of that, to the point where it is very disturbing.

So once again, I am asking you, do not address me, do not lie about me, I will correct all lies as I always have. I want no dialogue with you because I find your behavior to be disturbing.

Since you cannot focus on ISSUES, but appear to be so obsessed with my position on food labeling that you are following me around for months, there is nothing you have to say that enhances this forum in any way.

It is a simple request.

And don't expect to get responses on your baloney? As for personal attack, well I know I've been on the receiving end of that from you also on quite a few occassions. That any one person ( well 2 if you count me,..... Ok maybe more like 6 or 7 if you count your other "regulars" recalls your typical mo and calls you on it, isn't stalking. You are inviting public critism on a public bb when you post conspiracies and make up facts.

I highly doubt it. However she WAS behind the initial trial balloons like the Joan Walsh concern trolling articles and the "Not Good Enough Bernie" stuff. And the people that were pushing it vociferously right here on DU? Ardent Hillary supporters. So now it's spun out of her control she will be getting the blowback.

I also agree she would score some points by defending him but as you point out, she's under no such obligation especially considering that currently they are in competition with each other.

Obviously I'm a Sanders supporter but I can certainly see why Sec. Clinton would remain silent on this. Anything bad for the Sanders campaign is good for the Clinton campaign and with this she need do nothing at all but reap the benefits. Doesn't mean her campaign is in cahoots with BLM.

Do you really think HRC is the puppetmesiter over BLM, a national activist group, stemming from the murders of unarmed PoC by cops?? Hey maybe she paid the cops to kill those young men to get the plot started! And since those acts began long before Bernie announced, she must have been psychic to boot! SHE'S a FIEND!

It's a loosely knit coalition of activists who share a common concern. I have no idea whether "they" are malleable or not. And the messages being floated about Bernie not addressing the issues of people of color were being put out there (mainly by white liberal HRC supporters) long before the Netroots Nation protests. Hillary is not going to be able to disassociate herself from this.

37. "Soros funding of BLM is not evidence."...

So what if it is evident?

Claim: George Soros donated $33 million to fund rioting Ferguson protest groups - Snopes

-snip-

According to various alarmist reports, Soros himself virtually single-handedly enabled and promoted protests connected with the Ferguson shooting because some of the groups involved (tangentially or otherwise) with activism-related events received some portion of their funding from the OSF network:

In all, Mr. Soros gave at least $33 million in one year to support already-established groups that emboldened the grass-roots, on-the-ground activists in Ferguson, according to the most recent tax filings of his nonprofit Open Society Foundations.

The financial tether from Mr. Soros to the activist groups gave rise to a combustible protest movement that transformed a one-day criminal event in Missouri into a 24-hour-a-day national cause celebre.

Soros-sponsored organizations helped mobilize protests in Ferguson, building grass-roots coalitions on the ground backed by a nationwide online and social media campaign.

Other Soros-funded groups made it their job to remotely monitor and exploit anything related to the incident that they could portray as a conservative misstep, and to develop academic research and editorials to disseminate to the news media to keep the story alive.

But taking that information and converting it into the assertion Soros himself funded Ferguson-related protests and riots is problematic for a number of reasons. Although George Soros is the founder and chairman of OSF, he quite obviously does not personally oversee and approve every single grant made by the OSF network to the multitude of
organizations and programs that the network helps to fund. As well, the $33 million figure includes just about every organization with any connection to Ferguson-related activism that received monies from the OSF network, even if their involvement was tangential (such as publishing, writing, or promoting hashtags about the issue). And that such groups may have received part of their funding from the OSF network doesn't mean those funds were given for the specific purpose of organizing Ferguson-related protests, or with the knowledge or intent they would be used thusly.


As Kenneth Zimmerman, director of OSF's U.S. Programs observed, some of the groups involved have been receiving OSF funding since long before the Ferguson shooting was a political issue, and the OSF itself did not promote or direct Ferguson-related protests:

even though he worked for Creep but I met him in 71 when he tried to get our anti Nixon anti war group to protest against Nixon.......... He wanted us to give them drugs to make them obnoxious as possible so the media would notice and then promised us the NFL contract for our small silk screening company we were trying to start if we did.....we said we wanted a written contract.....
that ended the conversation

I might post the whole story later

68. If Hillary gains anything from Bernie's engagement with BLM, it should be that she learns

from his framing of their issues; and they will forge a better national modeling of how to be their ally in a way that will bring more black voters to the polls. If she learns to frame America's difficult challenges with racial and gender differences, she will show herself to be a fine future president on the domestic front, for all her corporatism. That's something I look forward to seeing.

Women of all races and people of color worldwide will be watching them both.

72. Problem with BLM

- as it is currently presenting itself, is that they are only interested in attacking low risk targets at events they can easily access and can be relatively assured that they will be allowed to take the stage. Sure- it is getting them clicks and likes, but it is also dividing their community base.

To really soar they have to attack the real enemy of the people and right now that is the Republican racist clown car. There is risk here. They will have to risk being arrested and harassed. As a veteran of many civil and global rights movements, I can advise that you can either get your face on TV or you can effect real change. Real change involves risk for the planners and the activists of this movement.

All of what they are demanding is righteous. However, it will have to be achieved politically, therefore they cannot continue to divide the base or they will loose.

77. I'd like to draw a parallel that some may find annoying

The BLM #ShutItDown campaigns are intended to make the white middle class aware that their comfortable way of life is made possible by the exploitation, impoverishment, and suppression of black lives and black aspirations. It doesn't matter if the individual white person can sincerely say, "I'm not a racist. I don't hate anybody. I've never knowingly harmed a person of color." What matters is that they are personally benefiting, both through the unrecognized perks of white privilege and through the economic advantages of having a black underclass.

In the same way, Hillary is benefiting from any protest that targets Sanders while leaving her untouched. She benefits from having the perception that the Clintons are allies of the black community go unquestioned. She benefits from the Secret Service protection that as a former first lady surrounds her with an iron wall of security. She benefits from her high level of name recognition that enables her to slip in and out of cities to appear at $2700-a-plate fundraisers rather than doing wide-open public events.

She has her own very special version of white privilege, and rather than sitting back and letting it work in her favor, she has a moral obligation to, at the very least, acknowledge the unfair advantages she receives on every side.

80. I agree Cali.

I also think it's important that Bernie supporters stay on message about income inequality and the dangers of the oligarchy that currently governs our country. This is not to say the issues raised by BLM are not important, but rather they are occurring within a system, both social, political and economic which has been corrupted by the influence of money.

88. I Smell A Rat

 

I really doubt the HRC campaign had anything directly to do with what I witnessed yesterday at Westlake Center.

I was there, and I was pissed off by BLM. I am not a racist, and don't appreciate being called a racist because
I haven't fought hard enough to remedy 500 years of the oppression of African Americans.

Even though I agree cops should stop killing unarmed black/white/hispanic men, and it is a real problem, BLM
doesn't have much to say about the thousand murders of blacks by blacks for every Eric Garner, Michael Brown etc.
I'm not the only one to notice that. Economic justice is the real answer regardless how pissed off people get about
what cell phone videos they watch. When gang banging is the only job that pays, there is gonna be a lot of corpses.

That said, I smell a rat.

Pure Rove is attacking an opponent where you are weakest, like the purple band aids at the GOP convention in 2004.

Bush was a deserter, and Kerry was a war hero. Rove and his minions attacked Kerry's service record.

I smell a rat here.

Where Hillary is weakest, is her ties to Wall Street. Not the 5 million lunatic conspiracies.

It would be pure Rove to attack with her (or the billionaire's) minions Senator Sanders record for fighting
full throttle for social justice, and economic justice his whole entire career.

I can't see where Hillary is ordering BLM to attack Sanders, but something sure smells like a rat here.

Usually when you smell a rat, there is a dead rat somewhere......

Been doing this way too long.....

134. a lot of the suspicion is also from the similar language to the Clinton side: if you're not

Black/Latin@/GLBT you have to STFU (though of course actually BEING of the appropriate group never seems to matter)

and it wasn't O'Malley's side saying "Sanders supporters have a Black problem" (and "a Latino problem" and "a gay problem" and whatever but that didn't stick)

oddly I agree that there's no need for money or orders to change hands--that's always been the Clintons' M.O. (and if it were Soros they'd be protesting in Caracas anyway!)
