An internal memo from the Democrat Party to top House Democrat’s in 2015 has exposed how the rank and file Democrats really feel about the group Black Lives Matter. Now, I know what you are thinking, what the hell does that have to do with today? It’s 2020! Stick with me because this memo is part of the reason Democrats are facing backlash from Black Lives Matter over their little kneeling stunt earlier this week.
The memo, from former DCCC official Troy Perry, was written to “DCCC Staff” on Thursday, November 19, 2015, admitting that Democrat candidates “have struggled to respond to tactics of the Black Lives Matter movement.”
We’ve put the memo in its entirety at the bottom of this post.
“While there has been little engagement with House candidates, candidates and campaign staff should be prepared,” Perry wrote.
Perry was also petrified that the memo would get out. “This document should not be emailed or handed to anyone outside of the building,” he wrote. “Please only give campaign staff these best practices in meetings or over the phone.”
In the two-page memo, Perry said that Black Lives Matter is a “radical movement” intent on ending “anti-black racism.”
“Though police abuses are a central component, the founders view the movement more broadly,”the Democrat memo reads.
It continues by noting that Black Lives Matter also seeks “Criminal Justice Reform,” particularly “sentencing reform, ending prison industrial complex, police reform: referring to hiring, training, and unfair policing tactics.”
In just the past week we’ve already seen dissension between what AOC calls “DC Democrats” and activists over the defund police movement. Rep. Nancy Pelosi and leaders in Washington are only interested in supporting BLM so they can use it to attack President Trump. They are so out of touch with BLM that they are facing backlash for their little kneeling stunt earlier in the week.
African American activists were furious over the scarfs all of the Democrats wore during their kneeling ceremony. It just so happens that the scarfs they were wearing were worn by an African Tribe that rounded up and sold slaves.
Here’s a video explaining the debacle.
That 2015 memo exposed just how these Democrat leaders really feel about the BLM movement. If you still don’t believe just take a good listen from Rep. Eliot L. Engel, Democrat, in a New York City district who was caught on a hot mic earlier this month saying, “If I didn’t have a primary, I wouldn’t care.”
Engel was talking with Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. about whether he’d be able to speak at a BLM protest event in the memory of George Floyd. Diaz was letting Engel know that there is a lot of people and time might be short and Engel replied, “If I didn’t have a primary, I wouldn’t care.” Diaz actually didn’t hear Engel say it the first time and the congressman repeated it. Diaz was floored and said, “Don’t do that to me. We’re not gonna do this. We’re not politicizing. Everybody’s got a primary you know? I’m sorry.”
Nothing inside the Democrat hierarchy has changed since that 2015 memo, except that some of those radicals got elected and are causing headaches for the DNC leadership. If you need an example just take a look at the defund the police movement on her show Wednesday night Laura Ingraham nailed it…
