Hackers are at it again -- making life miserable for Democrats by no other means than through simply exposing Democrats' own words and deeds.
Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee emails leaked by the hacker dubbed "Guccifer 2.0" reveal the Party does not hold Black Lives Matter activists in high regard at all. In fact, the emails show that Democrats were simply "placating" BLM members and nothing more.
Needless to say, the angry mob is none too pleased. The Daily Caller reports:
The internal memo leaked by Guccifer 2.0 revealed the DCCC warned staffers to “be prepared” for BLM protests, and offered advice on how to respond to protests. [..] DCCC counseled Democrats to listen to activists, but to do so in “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 Party maintained that it should "lead from behind" when it comes to BLM, because, after all, activists "don't want their movement hijacked" by Democrats.
Read: Democrats don't want to be aligned too closely with members of a militant hate-group, but will still pander for their votes. Kind of like what they've done with Bernie Sanders' supporters.
In response to the leak, BLM stated that it is "disappointed at the DCCC’s placating response to our demand to value all Black life."
“We demand, and are fighting every day for, a radical transformation of American democracy where all Black lives are valued. We expect that our elected officials will stop pacifying and take us seriously,” the memo continued.
In an official statement the DCCC responded by placating, saying that it "highly respects" BLM and encourages its candidate to "listen to community activists to partner social change."
