Leaked memo shows Dems coach candidates on how to feign support for #BlackLivesMatter

Dems' response: Russians!

Honest disclosure: The advice the DCCC is giving its candidates here is not bad. Black Lives Matter is a group of radical activists looking for a reason to be offended and call you a racist. They should be dealt with very carefully, and absolutely no policy promises should be made to them. There is nothing wrong with advising your candidates thusly.

The problem with the Democrats is that they pretend to support Black Lives Matter, and they pretend to believe the organization is really just about black lives mattering, when in fact they know exactly what they are, but because these radicals are useful to the left-wing agenda, they will never admit it:

The Nov. 19, 2015, memo was sent to DCCC staff by Troy Perry, who was the DCCC director of diversity but now works for the Clinton campaign. The DCCC is House Democrats' campaign arm. 

In the email, he lays out the “best practices” for dealing with Black Lives Matter members.

“If approached by BLM activists, campaign staff should offer to meet with local activists. Invited BLM attendees should be limited,” the email said. “Please aim for personal or small group meetings. Listen to their concerns, don’t offer support for concrete policy positions.” 

The memo also urged against mentioning "black on black crime" or "all lives matter." 

"This response will garner additional media scrutiny and only anger BLM activists," the memo said. 

So they want to mollify BLM, but they don't want to give them anything and they don't want any attention being paid to the fact that they're mollifying them. Why? Because in BLM they've created a monster and they know they can't control it. This is what happens when you base your ideological strategy on the proposition that everyone is a racist. What do you think you'll give rise to when you play with that fire?

Oh, by the way, their standard response to just about any leak of their nefarious e-mail content has become quite hilarious. It's the Russians!

The leaked files were posted along with other Democratic documents by Guccifer 2.0, a hacker of unknown origin who the U.S. says could be working out of Russia and is intent on disrupting the U.S. presidential election. Guccifer 2.0 claims the documents were taken from House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s personal computer. 

Pelosi spokesman Drew Hammill, in a statement, called the leak an “attempt by Russia to influence our election,” while saying Pelosi “does not support the content or attitude of this memo. On many occasions, Leader Pelosi has publicly supported the ideals embraced by the Black Lives Matter movement and continues to do so.”.

He also noted Pelosi “does not have a personal computer at the DCCC so no hacked, dumped or doctored documents can be attributed to her computer.” 

Now I don't know, nor do I think anyone knows, if it's really the Russians who are behind these hacks. But that deflection is always an attempt to change the story from what is really relevant to this election, which is the kind of people the Democrats are and what can be expected of them if they're allowed to continue governing, especially under the leadership of Hillary.

Now you've been told: They know perfectly well that Black Lives Matter is irrational and out of control. But they want you to think otherwise because it's useful to them if you think that, which is why they'll pretend to support them, but they're quietly advising their candidates to make sure that "support" is as meaningless and empty as it can possibly be.
