In an interview with CNN's Wolf Blitzer Tuesday, A #BlackLivesMatter activist condemned the phrase "All Lives Matter" as a "violent statement" that undercuts black lives.
Activist Julius Jones, one of the protesters who interrupted the Bernie Sanders rally, first promised that such actions would continue, saying that they'll do "whatever it takes to get black lives matter on the national agenda."
Jones also emphasized the supposed "urgency" to get this #BlackLivesMatter movement on the national stage, reminding viewers that "kids are dying" and that "black lives are actively under attack" in a "terrible war" with their own country.
Shifting his cross hairs onto "All Lives Matter," Jones condemned it as a mere attempt to deflect from #BlackLivesMatter.
"When people say ‘all lives matter,’ it’s a violent statement," he said, "because the only time that people say ‘all lives matter’ is in opposition to ‘black lives matter,’ and it’s the most violent statement of love that you can do,” he said. “It’s like, ‘all lives matter!’ Yes, we understand that, it’s true, but in this country for the longest time, the United States acts like black lives don’t matter."
Julius Jones mentioned nothing about the millions of black lives lost to abortion, neglecting to realize he has probably voted for and supported candidates, including Barack Obama, who have flooded his neighborhoods with Planned Parenthood clinics.
