When the organizer agreed to give the podium to Marissa Jenae Johnson, Bernie stepped aside for her and stood to the side while she spoke. It's right there in the video. Go watch. Maybe your memory is bad.

They have their own reality which in and of itself speaks volumes. This thread is a perfect example.

Remember what it was like trying to talk logic to Republicans?

Bernie did get frustrated at Phoenix, but didn't "leave the stage" - the people hosting the event ended it early.

In Seattle, it wasn't his event. he was a guest speaker for an independently organized social security rally, and left the handling of the interruption to the event's organizers. he left because he was on a schedule, having an actual bernie Sandersevent later that evening to attend.

Gee, how come Bernie couldn't have just said "Black lives do matter!" like she did there?

It resulted in cheers and the event went on. Instead, Bernie acted flustered and left the stage--not once but on at least two occasions.


First off, you're telling three lies here.

1) At netroots nation, Sanders did in fact say that Black Lives matter.
2) he did not "leave the stage" as you imply at netroots - I suppose, in the sense that he's not still there, he did leave eventually... but he stayed for his full time... Though it happens the hosts cut said time in half.
3) Nor did he leave the stage in Seattle. he actually gave the space to the protestors, and stood on stage as they spoke.

You are lying to create the narrative of Sanders stomping off in a huff when confronted with Black Lives matter. That hasn't happened. yep, he could have done better at netroots, but frankly I don't blame him for being frustrated. between having his time cut in half, and that half being interrupted? I'd be frustrated too. No one likes being invited to speak, and then told to shut the fuck up.

You try to draw a contrast between him and Clinton. Alright. What do you think would happen to these protesters, if they jumped those fences (there were no fences at Sanders' speaking events), bulled through security (again, no security at Sanders' speaking events), climbed on stage and gave her the same treatment Sanders got in Seattle?

I imagine that a very many Clinton supporters on DU would tell us exactly what they really think about black lives matter, and black people in general, if that were to happen. How fortunate then, that there are so many layers of security between Clinton and the hoi polli that it's not likely to ever happen, I suppose

61. No assertions of malice in what I said.

I just described how he didnít handle it well.

All you're offering is excuses for why he didn't handle it well. He did end up leaving the stage and ending his speech. He did not say "Black lives do matter" and incorporate what happened into his speech like Hillary did. Her response acknoweldges what they are saying and shows agreement and solidarity with their message. Bernie's showed dismissiveness and annoyance. He lectured them about how he "marched with King," showing he was totally missing their point.

Seems like he's got a stump speech he likes to regurgitate and if you interrupt him it discombobulates him. He does not appear to know how to handle situations like this.

Sorry my observation pissed you off so much.

I enjoy watching hillaryclintonsupporters wheel their goalposts around the field.

I'm telling you what happened, since you very clearly have no real information about either event, and are going purely off the political equivalent of campfire stories. I'm sure in the next one, Sanders will have a hook for a hand.

of a candidate who is so easy to campaign for.

Hillary otoh, has made it impossible for you and her other supporters to ever again criticize Sander's handling of disruptions.

The contortions to try to say 'THIS WAS OKAY TO TOSS OUT BLACK ACTIVISTS' while saying the opposite about Bernie have cause great laughter throughout the blogosphere! It really is hilarious!

70. He handled it beautifully. And now we have this to compare it to, and Sanders handling of

the interruption of an event that WAS NOT HIS, he was just a guest, was a Class Act. Now the same people who screamed 'racism' at any suggestion that the interruption should have been handled the way this one was, are now totally FLIP FLOPPING and proving what most of knew from the start.

Bernie went to his OWN event right after that one, and was greeted by tens of thousands of supporters. It was an amazing night.

He just keeps on doing what is right, unphased by all the Rovian smear attempts and he people keep on signing up for his campaign.

Go Bernie! Who would never think of throwing protesters out of HIS events.

See how he handled the disruption this week by the Muslim Student. THAT should be used as a lesson to ALL politicians when faced with the inevitable protester disruptions. It was brilliant.

57. still doesn't justify a snarky, angry response from chief "diplomat"

 

she could have said the same thing, to much more powerful effect, without the rudeness and snark. Instead, she comes off like the queen b that she thinks she is.

Nor was her rudeness in the private meeting with the BLM representatives necessary.

If you're going to criticize Bernie's response when he was totally blindsided, screamed at and physically assaulted, then be prepared for criticism of Hillary's nastiness that comes out even when she isn't blindsided and is being treated with the utmost respect. Because she is often just plain nasty and rude, not to mention sociopathic when she is laughing about war and killing. And the videos are out there to prove it.

64. They were escorted to a place where they could speak with John Lewis and others.

While security was maintained, they were treated with respect by the campaign.

76. really ?

so being called ignorant and the n-word is respect ?

They were told "black lives matter ,but its not the time " by a campaign staffer

you must have a different definition of respect



@_iAmRoyal
White man called me "ignorant" and "a ni**er" as I was being "escorted" out.

77. The Clinton campaign treated the protesters with respect.

No one from the Clinton campaign used the n-word. Everyone there had cell phones. I am sure if a Clinton staffer said anything like that, the video would be on Youtube and the person who heard it would be talking to the media. Anonymous Twitter posts are not substantiation. Even if there was a "white man" who said that, he obviously was not part of the people escorting the protesters, according to "iAmRoyal." The protesters were not "thrown out," they left on their own:

The group ó fewer than 10 ó eventually left the college gymnasium only after the crowd of more than 2,000, most of them young African-Americans, chanted, "Let her talk!"

I know it was embarrassing how Sanders handled his BLM moments. That is no reason to make shit up about Clinton.

And Clinton supporters are not swarming BLM websites and Twitter, lecturing BLM, like Sanders supporters disrespectfully did after his BLM face plant.

79. I don't know who "iAmRoyal" is, do you? They are not affiliated with BLM.

And iAmRoyal did not say anyone from the Clinton campaign called him or her the n-word, regardless.

80. uh huh

As he was kicked out of the event a supporter spout those nasty words

BLM is one of many groups fighting for justice there are many others
sorry to burst your bubbble

but since you want to hear what someone from BLM has to say !

@Nettaaaaaaaa
And the "old guard" seems quite comfortable supporting a candidate hopeful with no racial justice platform... Those policies/laws effect us

@Nettaaaaaaaa Oct 30
Also hearing, respectable black folks are trying to silence and push protesters out of @HillaryClinton's rally. #Hillary4Who

@ShaunKing
I actually agree with the protestors at the @HillaryClinton rally.

She isn't taking police brutality serious enough. Not at all.

‏@deray 20h20 hours ago
Hillary Clinton has an opportunity to propose a platform re: criminal justice and race that matches the urgency of her rhetoric.
