I’d like to start a discussion about why it (at least) appears that the folks in BLM are choosing only to protest at Bernie Sanders rallies and not at the rallies of other candidates for the Presidency.
Sanders appears to be handling the disruption with grace and aplomb and as has been pointed out elsewhere, is instructing security/police not to intervene in the protests.
I’m a fairly distant observer to these events, in more ways than one, and I thought the BB ‘hive’ mind might do a good job of representing fair and balanced positions that do at explaining this phenomenon than other mostly biased sources I’ve seen on the web.
From my limited point of view it seems like the choice to protest and effectively disrupt Sanders’ rallies is counter-productive in some aspects. However, it obviously is garnering column inches (or whatever the appropriate metric for news-worthiness is) and therefore raising awareness for the cause but (and perhaps this is down to my own lack of total perception of the American news cycle) it does appear that Sanders’ speeches are being disrupted whilst those of the other candidates are not.
I’d love to hear some educated and balanced views on the topic.
and of course I imagine FOX are lapping this up
I am disappointed that two people disrupted a rally attended by thousands at which I was invited to speak about fighting to protect Social Security and Medicare. I was especially disappointed because on criminal justice reform and the need to fight racism there is no other candidate for president who will fight harder than me.
