As already posted here, a white man was dragged out of his car and beaten by a mob of black men, because they assumed the man to be a Trump voter.
According to former Bernie Sanders strategist, that’s not a hate crime. Only certain demographics can be victims of that. Worsening this ideology, the leftist media provides the voices who spew this ignorance a platform on which to speak! And THAT is what perpetuates racism, stupidity and falsehoods.
As Mediaite reports:
Former press secretary to Bernie Sanders and democratic strategist Symone Sanders mocked and dismissed a Donald Trump supporter who was beat up by a Chicago mob on CNN Monday because he was white…
“The audacity of privileged white people to sit on national television and question if hate crimes are happening, to just flippantly say ‘stop it, it’s not okay,’ and not put any action behind those words, it’s appalling to me. It’s actually appalling.
Trump supporter Carl Higbie retorted that there was violence on both sides, and that Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama hadn’t bothered to denounce the violence at anti-Trump rallies. “I’m sorry, hate crimes and protesting are not the same things…” Sanders responded. “A hate crime is a crime that is committed against somebody because of their religion, because of what they look like, because of their sexual orientation. That’s not the same thing as protesting.”
“What do you say to the people who dragged a poor white guy out of a car and beat him?” asked Higbie.
“Oh my goodness, poor white people! Please!” she responded. “Oh my– stop. Stop, Carl.”
“That’s not protesting!” Higbie said. “Dragging someone out of their car is beating them, not protesting.”
