WATCH Hillary Clinton’s Incredibly Awkward Meeting With #BlackLivesMatter Activists
Hillary Clinton recently met behind closed doors with Black Lives Matter activists.
The videos have now been released and boy was it awkward.
Good Magazine reported:
Hillary Clinton to #BlackLivesMatter in Video, “I Don’t Believe You Change Hearts…”
As recently reported by various news outlets, Hillary Clinton held a closed-door session with five representatives from #BlackLivesMatter last week after the activists were refused access to a campaign event in New Hampshire. GOOD has obtained exclusive video of the exchange between the Democratic candidate and members of the Boston chapter of #BlackLivesMatter, where a somewhat defensive yet candid Clinton responds to several tough questions.

In this segment the protester explains to Hillary, “America’s first drug is free black labor and turning black bodies into profit.”
Good Magazine points out that policies enacted under Bill Clinton, which Hillary supported, directly conflict with the efforts of the Black Lives Matter movement:
At the center of the most tense moments in the New Hampshire meeting is the assertion by #BlackLivesMatter representatives that Clinton must accept some responsibility for supporting policies and legislation that have led to mass incarceration in the United States, particularly the Violent Crime and Law Enforcement Act, passed during President Bill Clinton’s first term.
The act was the largest crime bill in U.S. history, and as the Clinton White House worked to build support for it in 1994, Hillary joined the effort lobbying lawmakers for support. “We need more police. We need more and tougher prison sentences for repeat offenders,” she proclaimed at a Women in Policing conference in August of that year. “We need more prisons to keep violent offenders for as long as it takes to keep them off the streets.”
Here’s PART 2:
In this segment the protesters accuse Hillary of victim blaming.
Democrats like Hillary Clinton built this and it isn’t going to end well for them politically.
