Remember when Dems were called out for only loving Black VOTES and not Black PEOPLE? By Trump? Doesn’t this hacked email make it look true?
Democrats love BLM activists so much that they have a script for how to speak to them. And strategies. And how-tos. And don’t DARE invite large groups. And don’t make specific promises. And lead from behind.
Sounds JUST like a Clinton playbook. Voters exist as a revenue stream, or a path to power. Nothing more.
But Oh! How they love to play the part of the compassionate soul! Because the suckers lap it up!
Look at the gift hacker ‘Guccifer 2.0’ gave by pulling back the curtain, and showing what they REALLY think of their precious voting block:
Democratic campaign officials advised House candidates to limit the number of Black Lives Matter activists at public events and promise no support for “concrete policy positions” as lawmakers hit the campaign trail late last year, according to newly leaked documents.
The internal memo from the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) leaked by the hacker Guccifer 2.0 warned staff to “be prepared” for Black Lives Matter protests and offered a set of “best practices” designed to preclude potentially embarrassing confrontations.
“Be a partner and lead from behind,” reads the memo to DCCC staff, dated Nov. 19, 2015. “BLM activists don’t want their movement co-opted by the Democratic Party. They are leary [sic] of politicians who hijack their message to win campaigns.”
Among the advised tactics, Democrats were counseled to engage with Black Lives Matter activists and “listen to their concerns” but to do so at “personal or small group meetings.”
“If approached by BLM activists, campaign staff should offer to meet with local activists,” the memo says. “Invited BLM attendees should be limited.”
The DCCC issued a statement Wednesday saying the party “highly respects and values” BLM’s cause and “will not allow this hacking to distract from our common goals nor disparage the BLM movement.”
“In less than two years, BLM has evolved from three words into a political force that is changing and waking our nation,” spokeswoman Meredith Kelly said. “At the DCCC, we highly encourage our candidates to not only embrace the importance of this movement, but to meet with and listen to community activists to partner social change.”

BLM responds to the memo:
Ironic that the BLM — which shamelessly uses the misfortune of others to further its own agenda — is now upset that they caught the party they counted as friend using them in exactly the same way. What’s the matter? Dishonest rhetoric is only ok when YOU use it?
