VIDEO: Liberals scream & call each other racist at big Netroots Nation conference

Liberals have spent decades dividing this group into groups and playing them off of each other.  Usually they’re able to blame them off of conservatives, but yesterday things erupted and their rhetoric blew up in their faces…

Those tensions have simmered for the past several years, and grown in the past year as the #BlackLivesMatters movement insisted that its voice was not being heard even within progressive circles. Particular anger was directed at Democratic politicians who used the term #AllLivesMatter, under the argument that caring for everyone equally diminished caring particularly for people of color. (Hey, I didn’t make this up, I’m just reporting.)

Netroots Nation is the organization that started as progressive bloggers, and now encompasses the progressive movement. At the Netroots annual conference today, the racial fissure opened up when Martin O’Malley and Bernie Sanders were on stage. O’Malley broke the rule against saying “all lives matter” and Sanders was talking class warfare, not racial consciousness.

The #BlackLivesMatters activists in the room were enraged.

Video below. You can read some of the tweets from yesterday here. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go get some popcorn.
