Black Lives Matter Activist Interrupts Hillary Clinton [2/24/16] “I am NOT a Superpredator.”

24 February 2016

Hillary calling young black children “superpredators” in the 90s: here.

A YouTube commenter wrote on this:

Hillary: “I’m happy to address it” …as one of Hillary‘s [Secret Service] cronies removes the young Black Lives Matter activist … and Hillary does nothing to stop him. If Hillary was REAL she would have said “No, leave her alone, let her stay and let me explain what I meant when I said “We’ve have to bring them to heel.” But I guess that is a hard one to explain and it’s easier to just get the young lady out of the way than it is to REALLY DEAL with the “ISSUES.”

Black Lives Matter Activists Interrupt Hillary Clinton At Private Event In South Carolina

They wanted her to account for some of her past statements on racial justice.

02/24/2016 10:36 pm ET

Two Black Lives Matter activists interrupted a private Hillary Clinton fundraising event Wednesday night in Charleston, South Carolina.

Youth activist Ashley Williams demanded that the Democratic presidential candidate account for inconsistencies in her record on race, specifically around comments she made about crime in 1996.

Williams said she and a colleague, whom she did not identify, contributed $500 to attend the Clinton event, which was held at a private residence and was attended by around 100 guests.

Williams said she and her colleague strategically placed themselves at the front of the crowd and waited until Clinton appeared. Speakers introducing Clinton around 9:30 p.m. Wednesday night discussed Walter Scott, the Charleston A.M.E. Church shooting and how Clinton had a strong record of racial justice.

As Clinton spoke to the crowd, Williams stood to her side and held a sign quoting controversial statements Clinton made in 1996 in reference to at-risk youth, when she said “we have to bring them to heel.”

Williams said when Clinton paused and looked at her sign, she asked the former secretary of state to apologize to black people for mass incarceration. The mostly white audience yelled at Williams and told her she was being rude, she said.

“I wanted to bring her to confront her own words,” Williams told The Huffington Post after the protest, adding, “We did this because we wanted to make sure that black people are paying attention to her record, and we want to know what Hillary we are getting.”

Williams said the Secret Service threw her out out of the event.

The demonstration comes three days before the South Carolina primary, where turnout from black voters will be key to Clinton clinching the Democratic nomination.

Williams, who is from Charlotte, North Carolina, said she was motivated to protest because policies during President Bill Clinton’s administration led to an increase in mass incarceration that mostly affected black communities. She pointed to three-strike federal sentencing laws, the elimination of rehabilitative programs for drug abuse and an emphasis on prison construction as part of the destructive Clinton legacy on crime.

Clinton has distanced herself from these policies and recently issued a detailed agenda on racial justice. But Williams wants more.

“Hillary Clinton has a pattern of throwing the Black community under the bus when it serves her politically,” Williams said in a statement before the event. “She called our boys ‘super-predators’ in ’96, then she race-baited when running against Obama in ‘08, now she’s a lifelong civil rights activist. I just want to know which Hillary is running for President, the one from ’96, ’08, or the new Hillary?”

The Clinton campaign didn’t immediately return a request for comment.

This isn’t the first time Clinton has met opposition by activist groups during her campaign. In October 2015, protesters interrupted Clinton in Atlanta while she tried to roll out a plan for criminal justice reform. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) has also faced faced protests from Black Lives Matters activists at his events.

HuffPost Pollster shows Clinton with 58 percent in South Carolina, compared with Sanders‘ 33 percent, heading into the state’s Democratic primary.

    We end today’s show remembering Black Lives Matter activist MarShawn McCarrel. On February 8, he shot himself to death at the entrance to the Ohio Statehouse in Columbus, Ohio. MarShawn McCarrel was just 23 years old. MarShawn organized against the police shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson and worked to aid the homeless. He launched the program Feed the Streets after he himself was homeless for three months.

    Hours before he shot himself, MarShawn wrote on Facebook, “My demons won today. I’m sorry.” Just days before his death, MarShawn was honored as a Hometown Hero at the NAACP Image Awards for his community project Pursuing Our Dreams. On Tuesday, Democracy Now! spoke to a group of students and a teacher who knew MarShawn.

  2. One of the ways you can get a sense of our momentum and the nervousness within the Clinton campaign is by seeing that they are now using massive amounts of super PAC money, funded largely by Wall Street, against our campaign.

    One of those super PACs raised $15 million from Wall Street and the financial industry in the last half of 2015, and is now spending millions of dollars to try and tip the balance of a number of upcoming primaries and caucuses in Hillary Clinton’s favor. And just yesterday alone they reported spending nearly another $500,000.

    I don’t have a super PAC, and I won’t go around asking millionaires and billionaires for money. I am humbled that this campaign is funded by more than 4 million contributions made by working people who have had ENOUGH of the billionaire class buying our candidates and elections.

    But I am here to tell you that if we are going to win this primary and the White House, we’re going to have to stand together against the influence of Hillary Clinton’s super PACs in this race.

    Contribute $3 to our campaign to help us win on Super Tuesday and as a way of saying you have had ENOUGH of the billionaire class buying our candidates and elections.

    What is happening in these final days before Super Tuesday is that in state after state, the gap is narrowing or we are now forging ahead. Three recent national polls actually show us in the lead. The reason we have so much momentum, and the reason we are doing so well, is because people know that Washington is too busy representing the interests of wealthy campaign contributors to worry about the middle class.

    We are going to change that through this campaign, and through our political revolution.

    In solidarity,

    Bernie Sanders

  3. Just days before the Iowa caucus, Hillary Clinton left the campaign trail for a high-dollar fundraiser at a hedge fund. That same hedge fund is a major investor in fracking, an incredibly destructive practice of extracting natural gas by pumping hundreds of secret chemicals into the ground.

    Hillary Clinton supports fracking. I do not.

    And just as I believe you can’t take on Wall Street while taking their money, I don’t believe you can take on climate change effectively while taking money from those who would profit off the destruction of the planet.

    Please contribute $3 to our campaign right now to help elect a president who isn’t beholden to special interests that profit off of pollution.

    Contribute

    Dick Cheney pushed through changes to the Safe Drinking Water Act that legalized fracking, despite the fact that fracking companies keep the chemicals they pump into the ground a secret.

    People who live near fracking locations no longer have drinkable water, and in some cases their tap water is actually flammable. Oklahoma has even seen a rash of earthquakes that many believe are a result of fracking.

    In short, fracking is a disaster for the planet.

    We need a president who is not beholden to special interests and who will do everything in his or her power to fight the effects of climate change. It’s clear that to elect that kind of president, millions of people need to come together and chip in whatever they can.

    Make a $3 contribution to our campaign now to send a message that you want to elect a president who will do everything possible to fight climate change.

    We can’t afford to let people who would destroy our planet elect our next president.

    Thank you for your support.

    In solidarity,

    Bernie Sanders
