It’s deeply depressing that @BernieSanders’ supporters have gone from harassing @PeteButtigieg's staffers of color online to harassing our supporters of color in real life, but here we are https://t.co/pI4WkNXRhD— Lis Smith (@Lis_Smith) December 5, 2019
Can you imagine what it would be like if these people were in power and trying to run the country? Barack Obama presented himself as a moderate and he provoked an enormous backlash for merely tinkering around with health care.
“Pete Buttigieg on Thursday criticized an explosive — and nearly violent — interruption by a protester in a “Black Lives Matter” shirt at a gathering of African American supporters in South Bend, Indiana, as an “unfortunate” result of the political “climate that we’re in.”
“It shows kind of where politics has come to, especially for somebody to interrupt an African American woman who was speaking about her truth and in her experience,” Buttigieg, the mayor of South Bend, told NBC News about the Wednesday night incident.
“But this is the climate that we’re in and we need to continue making sure that everyone is empowered to speak their truth, their experience, and in particular, when it comes to South Bend’s story,” he said. …
In a statement Thursday, Black Lives Matter-South Bend said it “fully supports the actions of our members and allies at the Pete for America press conference held in South Bend, IN, yesterday.”
“This protest represents only a fraction of the longstanding pain many Black, Brown, and poor citizens endure in Mayor Pete’s South Bend,” the group said. …”
I don’t see many down sides.
I think it would be on balance better than the status quo. Pete Buttigieg won’t be the nominee though. It will come down to Bernie or Warren vs. Biden or Bloomberg.
