“Black lives are actively under attack, and we are in a terrible war with our own country.” That’s what a leader of the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer during a discussion about his backstage meeting with Hillary Clinton at a recent New Hampshire campaign stop.
On Tuesday, Western Journalism reported on the private meeting the Democrat’s 2016 front-runner had with Boston-area representatives of the so-called “civil rights” movement. After listening and nodding in agreement for more than three minutes to what amounted to a lecture from one activist who claimed that America is a racist nation, Clinton said that the country “has still not recovered from its original sin” of “anti-blackness.”
Hillary went on to claim that “anti-blackness” in America is a “founding problem for this country,” as she gave the BLM activists advice on how to help their movement gain political power.

That extraordinary meeting between Hillary Clinton and a handful of BLM representatives led to a couple of the activists getting the chance to spout their rhetoric to Wolf Blitzer on his CNN show Tuesday. Julius Jones, the BLM spokesperson who had gotten Hillary to agree that America continues to oppress black people with policies of “mass incarceration,” was given free rein to make his case — the CNN anchor didn’t engage, dispute, or push back when Jones said such things as, “In this country, for a long time, the United States acts like black lives don’t matter.”
But what many would no doubt find most shocking and inflammatory was the BLM protester’s characterization of the phrase that many have used in response to the Black Lives Matter movement — “all lives matter.”
“And when people say ‘all lives matter,’ it’s actually a violent statement, because the only time people say ‘all lives matter’ is in opposition to Black Lives Matter,” Jones said.
Apparently, this “civil rights” advocate believes that for someone to declare what would certainly seem to be the obvious — that all lives matter, without regard to race — is somehow a “violent statement.”
By clicking on the video above, you can see for yourself how Wolf Blitzer let the Black Lives Matter activists say whatever they wanted to say, without so much as a word of challenge to the rhetoric that could certainly be considered provocative, if not outrageously racist.
