Over the past week we have written a couple of times about a shocking scene caught on tape in Chicago in which a 49-year old white man, David Wilcox, was beaten by a group of angry black men as onlookers shouted “you voted Trump? you gonna pay for that sh*t," “beat his ass,” and “don’t vote Trump."
Despite numerous acts of violence perpetrated by protesters in Portland, New York, Oakland and Philadelphia over the past week, neither Obama, Hillary or any other democratic leader has come forward to denounce the rioters. To make matters worse, Symone Sanders, a democratic strategist, went on CNN this morning and, when asked about the Wilcox situation, responded by openly mocking him, saying: "Oh my goodness, poor white people! Please!"
Sanders: “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.”
“I’m sorry, hate crimes and protesting are not the same things…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.”
Higbie: “What do you say to the people who dragged a poor white guy out of a car and beat him?”
Sanders: “Oh my goodness, poor white people! Please! Oh my– stop. Stop, Carl.”
