The sheer arrogance and hypocrisy of Nancy Pelosi and the Dems pandering is many times worse than anything we have seen on the right.
It is just astounding. They were just terrified of Black Lives Matter during the 2016 election going so far as to brand them a radical organization. Now Nancy Pelosi embraces the movement for political opportunity. Which one is it?
Breitbart reported that a leaked internal Democrat Party memo from 2015 warned top House Democrats not to embrace the Black Lives Matter movement because it was described by the Democrat Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) as a “radical movement.”
The memo, from then-DCCC official Troy Perry addressed to “DCCC Staff” on Thursday Nov. 19, 2015, noted that the Democrats’ 2016 presidential candidates “have struggled to respond to tactics of the Black Lives Matter movement.” Perry was at the time he wrote this the DCCC’s Director of Diversity and Public Engagement.
“While there has been little engagement with House candidates, candidates and campaign staff should be prepared,” Perry wrote.
The DCCC is the official arm of the Democrat Party charged with electing Democrats to the U.S. House of Representatives. When this 2015 memo was drafted, Democrats were in the minority in the U.S. House—seeking a return to the majority that they did not achieve in the 2016 elections as now President Donald Trump won the White House and the GOP held its House majority riding the president’s coattails. Later, though, Democrats would win the House majority back in the 2018 midterm elections.
Perry warned recipients of his memo in the next line that it was top secret and confidential—not to be shared with anyone. “This document should not be emailed or handed to anyone outside of the building,” he wrote. “Please only give campaign staff these best practices in meetings or over the phone.”
But the document ended up leaking through hacker Guccifer 2.0 in the lead-up to the 2016 presidential election late in the summer of 2016, just after Democrat Hillary Rodham Clinton had secured the nomination and the general election kicked off.
In the memo, the then-DCCC official Perry described Black Lives Matter as a “radical movement” intent on ending “anti-black racism.”
“Though police abuses are a central component, the founders view the movement more broadly,” the Democrat memo reads.
It continues by noting that Black Lives Matter also seeks “Criminal Justice Reform,” particularly “sentencing reform, ending prison industrial complex, police reform: referring to hiring, training, and unfair policing tactics.”
The movement also, according to the Democrat memo, seeks an “end to police brutality” and stopping of “killings of unarmed African Americans.”
It notes that the Black Lives Matter movement has it roots in the aftermath of the acquittal of George Zimmerman, the Hispanic man who killed Trayvon Martin in Sanford, Florida, during Barack Obama’s presidency. To achieve these goals, the Democrat memo continues, Black Lives Matter pushes to “collect data on police shootings” and for a “demilitarization of the police.”
