"I had a Sarah Palin button on backpack" Who is BLMS's Marissa "Johnson" Jenae?

Last edited Sun Aug 9, 2015, 05:56 PM - Edit history (3)

It's said that if you decide to act above reproach, you had better be above reproach. It seems that Marissa "Johnson" Jenae did not heed this warning. A photo posted by Jenae to her FB page (Linked) in which she stated "This woman has known me since high school, back when I had a Sarah Palin button on backpack....we been thru a lot."

Alone, we can surmise that she may have made a few questionable choices in her youth. OK, she was young, but Palin was a candidate for VP running against the first black president. But when I read down a little further, my benefit of the doubt limit had been reached.

"GOP shoulda groomed me right then...now they gotta see me on the other side *shrugs*"

For real? It's like that? This wasn't 8 years, or even 4 years ago. She posted that last month. So my question is, what kinda grooming would it have taken?

If you're going to accuse white liberals of racism, and target the only presidential candidate, U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders with a 40 year track record of standing up for #BlackLivesMatter you might not want people to know that "I had a Sarah Palin button on my backpack" or admit that the GOP could have "groomed you more". Because now you look disingenuous at best, and an agent provocateur at worse.#FeelTheBern #BlackLivesMatter2Bernie #SarahPalinButtonReally #BLMjoinBernie #NativeAmericanLivesMatter #Ismellcointelpro

Wow, very humbling. I've been here 10 years and this is the first time I have ever made to top of the trending page. I just wish it was for something a little more lighthearted.
Thank you all.

1. (Edited Post Title): So this whole Sanders/BLM thing...

 

...was founded by a paid agent up for sale?

It's like Gamergate all over again. Better hope the media was bought FOR our side or this is going to be a long election.

4. I'm not saying that the BLM movement is at fault here...

but they should know this is comming out, and they should get ahead of this now, before any more damage is done.

320. Not necessarily. No fundie I've ever met would post "scandalous shit" and "the cross" in the same

breath. I am not saying she isn't a fundie, but I am saying there is more than one way to interpret those words.

29. No, but there's always a question of who, from the other side, finds their way into a movement,

 

especially a progressive movement, if it's on the cusp of threatening success.

And who benefits the most from a circular firing squad on the left?

111. Y'know, I've been wondering what Ron Christie is up to nowadays..

....I also wonder if he and James 'Booger' O'Keefe exchange xmas cards. Maybe I'm way out on a limb here, but one wonders at times like this.

357. A minority rights movement usually draws from across the political spectrum, but I'm completely in

synch with your last statement. The aggressively confrontational and rejectionary nature of these attacks has social conservative hostility all over it. Fortunately, many Black Lives Matter members are not barn-burners, angry as they be, and good luck to them.

108. She co-founded the Seattle Chapter.

 

It would appear she doesn't give a shit about the movement, is just persuing her own personal power-trip. she's getting paid, BLM rank and file getting played. Looks like the beginning of the end.

153. This was what I had heard too (about founding)...

 

...but I just read something on the front page that might call that into doubt. My posts intent wasn't so much about WHO it was as it was further disgust that yet another online movement is so readily coopted. It's been a recurring theme over the past year, year and a half.

Even if they had nothing more than a one-day facebook page, that's all it takes for the media to latch it's narrative. And once that narrative is set, it takes a force of nature to get it to change its course.

And I think it's a little presumptuous to start assuming that one sentence, a vague one at that, pulled out of all that is on that site explains that woman's motives.

And, this is off-topic - it should be in GD - P.

95. Who said this woman founded BLM? Let's not jump to hasty conclusions

Seems she latched onto the moniker and is using it for whatever her reasons are.

BLM grew organically out of the Ferguson protests, and all the other killings of unarmed blacks in the last year.

We all know this. We've watched it happen.

We should not be so willing to discredit a legitimate protest movement because one seemingly unstable person who may be an agent provocateur even, takes it upon herself to do stage a disruptive act.

We have people with sense here.

We all should know that something is fishy, especially when nothing is done against the repugs where there should be protests.

298. I know. However, I want someone to interview her, and ask her, or a reliable independent source

about it. There is something bizarre about this whole affair that doesn't make sense.

There are a lot of unanswered questions.

1. Does the national BLM organization confirm her participation in the organization, and do they subscribe to the philosophy she subscribes on her social media pages.

2. Confirm from her directly that this is her face book/twitter comments. If it is then how can she support Palin, and at the same time profess that Black Lives Matter. At the same time she also seems to subscribes to the views of Malcom X, which seem at best contradictory putting Palin and Malcom X in the same frame of admiration.

3. Is this part of a dirty trick scheme? If it is, it sure is not done in a very clever way, especially with her seemingly contradictory remarks on her social media pages.

In other words, this story should not just end with the MSM reporting that she is from the Seattle division of BLM, and that is all there is to know. It isn't. There are a lot of unknown question.

While I am not holding my breath that the MSM will pursue actual investigative journalism, I do think there are enough progressive reporters that should be able to fill in the blanks.

301. Why would an interview be better?

This is what she said "in private". This is the information that interviews are supposed to try and dig out through the spin and lies in the interview.

There is something bizarre about this whole affair that doesn't make sense.

There has been a long-term effort to break African Americans from the Democratic party through religion. Blacks are more religious than the Democratic average. So Republicans have been trying to use their religious fundamentalism to get blacks to support Republicans instead of Democrats.

And she's on-board with that plan - at a minimum, with the "split from the Democrats" part. That isn't confusing at all.

1. Does the national BLM organization confirm her participation in the organization, and do they subscribe to the philosophy she subscribes on her social media pages.

AFAIK, they have made no statements. But BLM is a "leaderless" group like OWS. Anyone can stand up and say "I'm BLM!!". They do not need national approval before they start.

2. Confirm from her directly that this is her face book/twitter comments.

It was found by following the facebook page to Seattle BLM that she provided in her press release on the event. The same person created this personal page, and the Seattle BLM page in her press release.

The facebook page also has a long posting history. If the goal was to discredit this woman, the effort would have required years of work. Why would this particular unknown-until-now woman merit years of work?

3. Is this part of a dirty trick scheme? If it is, it sure is not done in a very clever way, especially with her seemingly contradictory remarks on her social media pages.

Not an organized one. From her complaints about not being groomed by the GOP, it looks like she was freelancing in the hopes that it lands her paid gigs.

7. This from the link...



"The white liberal differs from the white conservative only in one way. The liberal is more deceitful than the conservative. The liberal is more hypocritical than the conservative. Both want power, but the white liberal is the one who has perfected the art of posing as the Negro’s friend and benefactor, and by winning the friendship and support of the Negro, the white liberal is able to use the Negro as a pawn or tool in this political football game.

Politically the American Negro is nothing but a football, and the white liberals control this mentally dead ball. Through tricks of tokenism and false promises, and they have the willing cooperation of Negro leaders. These leaders sell out our people for just a few crumbs of token recognition and token gains" -MALCOLM X

If you are stanning for Bernie Sanders and are upset that he got shut down but you haven't been putting the same passion behind Black Lives you really need to reevaluate more than your political party.

So who is this person, really. I don't think she's a liberal or progressive...much less a democrat...

I'm reminded of the line from a song; "We were once so close to heaven- Peter came out and gave us medals, declaring us the nicest of the damned"



I do get what you're saying, but I'm sure you get what I'm saying as well when I say that it still doesn't mean Ben Carson gets a free pass on being a fundamentalist anti-choice whack-a-doo who thinks Joseph built the pyramids for grain storage.

Given the evidence of not just "church" but both Right-wing fundamentalism AND a history of supporting the GOP, it certainly seemed reasonable to ask if this person was acting - deliberately disrupting a left-leaning Democrat- on behalf of the religious right.

I'm not sure where you're drawing your lines, frankly. I'm of the opinion that people should decide which candidate to support based upon the policy positions of that candidate, but YMMV.

If you're running around town stumping for Hillary with DU threads, hey, congratulations. Whatever makes ya happy. I hope you've got a good battery in your laptop, or ipad. Please don't tell me you make people read this shit on your phone.

Ok, in response to a heavy stream of responses to yesterday's action, I'm going to try to break this down.
I'm an anarchist and I'm not going to vote for any of the presidential candidates. If in your view that means I don't have a place to say anything on this, then don't bother reading the rest of this or commenting, because obviously there's no reason for us to have a conversation. (I'll delete if you try since after decades I'm pretty bored with it.)

.....



BLM really shouldn't want to be aligned with anarchists. It is one thing to not endorse a party or candidate. But anarchy is not what most people of color want. At least not the ones I know. What POC want is a system of justice that works fairly for them. The current system is very frustrating, tragically frustrating, failing and abusing them, but they don't want it all "burned down" and replaced with anarchy. Only an insane and/or immature punk with no concept of reality (or no concern for other people) really wants anarchy.

Now it all makes sense. She is a VERY ANGRY person with a RWNJ personality. I question whether she really gives a rats ass about the BLM movement. Like most Republicans, she's only looking out for herself.

88. I'm beginning to believe what I thought was not worth considering, that this could be

a Rovian effort to divide the Dem Party to the point where whoever wins the nomination, the infighting will leave so many scars, neither one will get the support of the other as usually happens.

They have been asked why they have not gone after Republicans but have not answered that question. Beginning to see why.

The real movement against Police Brutality is made up of people who protested in Ferguson who then went under the title BLM.

A Sarah Palin fan. She sounds bitter that the Right didn't appreciate her enough and now she's going to show them just how good she is at going after 'White Liberals'.

I hope she doesn't turn people away from the Ferguson protesters. In fact that might even by the goal.

I mean, have you seen their candidates? Trump is performing above expectations, but it's been the same outrageous, needs-to-be-locked-up kind of thing for the last three or four elections, and they get worse every time.

I said on another thread that to see why this happened, follow the line to see who benefits. I doubt any sane BLM supporter wants this kind of thing linked to them. It will turn people against them, make people wonder what the group is really about, and it takes the focus off the issue of how blacks are treated (and all people of color as well) in our society.

So it makes one wonder, what is the point of assaulting someone like Bernie, who has the support of so many liberals? Remember, liberals are only wanted until their votes are counted, and then we are supposed to sit down and shut up.

GOP probably took one look at her and labelled her toxic. She'll probably find the same reaction from most all prospective employers.

I have been thinking the same thing, was actually toying with starting a thread, but you nailed it.

Don't know if the Kochs &/or their ilk are behind it or not, but they have the most to lose from a Sanders presidency, imo, and I certainly wouldn't put it past them or the Roves of this world.

It's important for all the entities you mentioned to find out who's behind this asap. Obviously, whoever it is has a need to disparage all involved and divide and conquer. If I were Hillary and BLM, I'd disavow this in a New York minute.

Hitting either Ctrl (holding it down) and then hitting the key labeled 'PrtScn' to do a full-screen grab, or Alt (holding it down) and then hitting the key labeled 'PrtScn' to do a grab of whatever app has the 'focus' on your screen at the time (in this case you'd want that to be your browser).

That puts the contents of the screen into the 'copy/paste' buffer. You then can open any sort of photo editor like MS Paint or Photoshop or whatnot, and hit Ctrl-V to paste the screen image into a 'new' document in that application.

Then hit 'save' and choose to save as some compressed format like gif or jpg (so it's not a huge file).

As to Rachel, she's so intelligent, knows what she's doing and a thought came to me the other day that she will return to progressive media someday not far off and not to worry. I really believe that.

Rachel and Lawrence are muzzled, Ed is gone, that buffoon Chuck Todd is replacing him.

They are pushing that floundering Joe Scarborough and Chuck Todd on the other programs.

I've been posting that all this was a false GOP meme from the start.... Back when they noticed there were a lot of white folks in VT and NH.

I kept asking why BLM and their supporters kept championing Right Wing lying talking points.

I got called a racist or too stupid to understand. (still happening)

Why hasn't BLM done this to Hillary?

Why haven't they done it to any of the GOP candidates?

Why doesn't BLM just organize a forum and invite all the Dems to talk about it.... no disruptions allowed?

It all seemed fishy.... and now we see IT IS.

GOP operatives and fundigelicals.... going after the Jew. Very fishy indeed.

BLM needs to mitigate this by having an official event with the candidates. Will they?

Is Clinton involved? I dunno. But she sure isn't doing anything to squelch the lies and GOP talking points.

When is BLM going after her? When are they going after the GOP line up? BLM is being used.

When emotional subjects like race and religion enter, all logic flies out the window. Anyone trying to step back and get an assessment is attacked and ridiculed.

43. The disruptor at Netroots was a bit of an interesting character as well

While her social-justice creds can't be criticized, her leadership skills are stained by the fact that she once severely betrayed the trust of an employer.

While working as the business manager for the Arizona Citizens for the Arts/Arizona Action for the Arts in 2007 and 2008, a job she includes in her online résumé, Oso issued checks to herself, made unauthorized withdrawals and made personal charges on the organization's credit card. The theft occurred over the course of a year and totaled about $11,000, court records show.

Oso had walked off the job in May 2008 without explanation "after being counseled about absences and performance-related issues," records state. She was fired after she failed to show up for work for three days, and the embezzlement was apparently discovered soon afterward.

Twenty-seven at the time, Oso confessed to court officials that she used the money to pay rent, make car payments, and "stabilize her financial situation."

She pleaded guilty to one count of felony theft.

Brenda Sperduti, the organization's former executive director, told officials that the arts group, which depends on donations for its survival, "had to win back the trust of donors after this." But Sperduti also asked for leniency for Oso.

Oso was sentenced to three days in jail and two years' probation. She struggled in the past few years to pay off a $11,276 restitution order — to her credit, she finally paid it off entirely last year. After she completed her probation successfully, her felony conviction became a misdemeanor in court files.

What it actually is, is the largest gathering of paid and wannabe paid Democratic party activists, Democratic candidates and Democratic campaign managers, of consultants and vendors to Democratic campaigns, and folks of all kinds who are part of the far-flung partisan and ostensibly “non-partisan” machinery that gears up every even numbered year to elect Democrats to local, state and national office. Some of them want to change the Democratic party from within, some of them want to take it as it is, but they're all committed to staying inside the Democratic tent, and to keeping you there as well.

If you're a black Democratic party activist like I was for 25 years, even if like me, you never called yourself that, you go to NetRoots to connect with other Democratic party activists, and hopefully, with the people who will be handing out grassroots money, among other things, to get out the Big Black Vote in November, without which Democrats on every level have no hope of winning.

High ranking Democrats who hand out money, whether through partisan campaigns or to ostensibly nonpartisan and/or nonprofit organizations are always on the lookout for new activist blood with catchy new hooks, for activists who'll say the things they will not say in the effort to turn out the black masses for that Big Black Vote. So if you're a black activist at NetRoots you really NEED to stand out, to get noticed by the people who can give you fellowships, grants, jobs, funding of all kinds, and a career.

Since Hillary is the all but inevitable Democratic nominee, confronting two minor white male candidates, demanding they “say her name” and come up with solutions that address white supremacy, structural racism and the runaway police state is pretty much a foolproof strategy to get noticed, and as Hillary did not attend NetRoots, they got to do it without antagonizing the Clinton camp. Hillary wisely covered her own ass by releasing a tweet that unequivocally said “black lives DO matter.”

This picture seems intended to inflame. The question is to what purpose. It could be a sincere expression of her feelings. Or something she was "groomed" to say.

50. food for thought - a quote she posted on her FB

Here is a quote she has as one of her photos and she posted it June 24. I am trying to absorb this quote, the context of the original author and sentiment of those sharing it currently. But I thought it might offer a glimmer into her mindset (her very young mindset, from photos and observation she was in high school just a few years ago).

The quote is from James Baldwin from an article in Esquire in the July 1960 issue and re-run in 2007:

Northerners indulge in an extremely dangerous luxury. They seem to feel that because they fought on the right side during the Civil War, and won, that they have earned the right merely to deplore what is going on in the South, without taking any responsibility for it; and that they can ignore what is happening in Northern cities because what is happening in Little Rock or Birmingham is worse. Well, in the first place, it is not possible for anyone who has not endured both to know which is "worse." I know Negroes who prefer the South and white Southerners, because "At least there, you haven't got to play any guessing games!" The guessing games referred to have driven more than one Negro into the narcotics ward, the madhouse, or the river.


So my take is this - that those of us whites who say that we "get it" will rarely be just accepted as having "gotten it", that we are indeed not only part of the problem, but that we are more responsible than the actual overt, open racists.

That we are more responsible because we are silently complicit in the racist system, and benefitting from the racist system, all the while feeling smug about our "liberal" credentials and being the ones not only saying we have black friends, but actually having black friends, whether we admit it or not we have a benevolent arrogance about us that we "get it" while not admitting that we are all being so passive, without digging in the back-breaking ditch of making drastic changes -- and this smugness is what does more harm than good. It is more insulting in the long run than the overt racist. And my guess is that occasionally marching/protesting at our convenience is enough to make a dent and bring us street cred as "getting it".

So maybe we should forget about telling anybody that we get it, and just go about the work of fixing the systemic racism, or perhaps we get out of the way until what? I am not sure. I read the demands on the official BLM site, and some of them are the same things everybody would openly want to tackle such as body cams, dash cams, better screening and training of police, stronger auditing, stricter investigations of racial profiling, etc.

The only thing I can say with every earnest feeling from the depths of my heart and mind -- is that I want to get it.

But my problem is my work history and my old Vice President. I like to fix things. My VP had a very long saying and a tough expectation from us all. She would say

Don't come to me with an issue. Don't come to me with an issue and a list of possible solutions. Don't come to me with an issue and an analysis of which solution will work the best. Take the initiative, do not ask permission - come to me only after you have tried two of your best solutions and then show me the data on the incremental changes made with each solution you tried.


But "fixers" like me may be part of the problem. I want to help. I want to march and protest alongside. If I shouldn't want to help, let me know. If I should want to help, but then not help, because helping is less helpful than just supporting from afar, I want to know that too.

2- Bernie Sanders and BlackLivesMatter need to sit down and release a joint public statement of understanding.
3- Hillary Clinton's campaign needs to speak out on this issue, and lay off the "Bernie's Black Problem" meme.

"2- Bernie Sanders and BlackLivesMatter need to sit down and release a joint public statement of understanding."

Who is BLM? Do they have an actual organization? A president? Leadership?

To me...they're not even a real, anything, beyond this gal. I understand what has been happening in this country but strongly disagree with him trying to make something with this gal.

His new National Press Director will bring insight...and if they discuss anything with anyone (and keep in mind the howling from ALL sides if he were to do this, claiming from the right that he's some AA radical and the left will ignore it and claim he's pandering) it would need to be with a nationally recognized organization.

Again in the mean time...all other candidates for POTUS, on both sides, hide under rocks.

130. Personally, the parents and loved ones of those within the movement. And not an endorsement.

It should be a council (loosely termed) of the families who's strong, burdened shoulders have lifted the movement in the first place. Treyvon's parents, their pain bore the BLM movement. Mike Brown's parents. His father is a rock. And Eric Garner and Sandra Bland, and Oscar Grant, and so on.

I used the term "statement of understanding" very strategically. This should not be an endorsement. Those may come later (after the primaries would be preferred), but for the interests of all involved, should be available to any other candidate on the ballot (insert nudge to the Clinton campaign). But I doubt most would risk inflaming their base with such outreach (flat out elbow to the republicans).

Of course, this shouldn't be done under the "Flag of BLM" so to speak. It should be with the families, and at the request of either the candidate or prominent family members and private unless otherwise agreed.

This would be a good job for Symone Sanders.

She is demanding solutions by bullying....the way that any good Republican would. She wants them to bow down before her #bowdownbernie

It doesn't delegitimize BLM as a whole......but it makes clear that it is foolish to just assume that BLM is a progressive organization.

She is the face of the next generation of the Republican party.

82. Part of the point of BLM is that the Dem Establishment take the black vote for granted

Marissa's position seems to be not only one setting race against economics, but also setting race against politics (as usual).

#BLM has stated repeatedly they want to be courted by the Democrats.

We are rolling our eyes and saying "see if the GOP" treats you better: don't you know an "ally" when you see one? The traditional black vote has been the alliance. #BLM is demanding more from that alliance. Marissa belongs to some "Outliers" group that is saying "court" my vote no matter who you are. Because of the Palin button, it seems like Marissa could easily end up in the Ben Carson school of black liberation: overcoming racism through her personal career advancement.

#BLM is right to demand more from the party and from their ostensible political representatives. However, I hope they realize if their leaders are openly courting the GOP, they will find it harder to grab the mic at Democratic Party events.

But that normally means supporting a specific candidate in the race. It's hard to see how a BLC endorsement of Clinton means much as far as expanding her electorate, unless she embraces and runs with the issue, which seems unlikely.

In my view, though, our political representatives are taking everyone's vote for granted except deep-pockets donors, so "taking the black vote for granted" might be an organizing principle, but not necessarily the truth of the matter.

When I was participating in the protests here (primarily run by By Any Means Necessary - which seems suspiciously like that Outlier group - and Occupy), there were a number of themes which Ferguson brought to a head. My impression was that radical action and "diversity of tactics" was necessary because Democratic politics as usual took black support for granted. And got nothing done.

91. She sees Palin as feminist ???????????????????????????????????

She sounds like my fundie neighbors inventing their own history of protestant faith and American History to suit their egos. This person seems to have much in common with James O’Keefe and other children from the Carl Rove school for attack dog media.

I have observed a similar distopian attitude among some IT professionals where it is the fashion to passionately denigrate anyone they imagine represents status-quo values or institutions. They often cite ludicrous and occasionally non-existent sources to support their views. They frequently allude to conspiracies and institutional hierarchy with arguments both contradictory and unsupported by the most basic reading of facts. They fall somewhere between libertarian and anarchist in their public remarks. However their real world life choices more often reflect the privileged arch-conservative class they pretend to be above.

They seem to feel most empowered when they can attack public figures with impunity. I have yet to see one of them commit to or carry out a constructive act or cooperative project which practically addressed any of the wrongs they so energetically assign to others.

Yes, the Democratic Party should be working very hard to persuade Black voters that there is indeed something to vote FOR. I feel the same way about the party. I have yet to see that the party leadership has much if anything to offer. They have certainly treated NC democrats of with callous disrespect, frequently taking our votes for granted in the national while ignoring our local races with either funding or organizing help. The DLC and now DNC are 0-3 on this score. They appear to have assumed that we are South Carolina and refuse to hear the difference unless we promise unqualified support for Banking and MIC interests in the state.

As far as the BLM movement is concerned: Yes they have a point about the priority placed on issues of direct and institutional racism. They need to learn that the way forward is to bring something constructive to the table. Attacking those with a genuine history of aiding your cause will not persuade them to agree with you, nor will it generate the results you desire in government. You want things to change? Get the voters organized and you will have effect.

Bitch and whine loudly, and it has to be said somewhat inaccurately, in front of the cameras and you will engender doubts and disdain on the part of those you most need to hear your message. Bullies are not generally believed on matters of moral truth nor trusted to evaluate justice fairly.

106. Where's Hillary? She didn't denounce. Are they Fundies, Rogue Feminists, or Operatives?

.


The whole disruption was because Bernie did not solidify a statement about race relations.


Yet, when looking at these people's histories, they appear to be fundies, feminists, and BLM people.
They supposedly started their BLM page just a week or two ago, after the one woman's post about
getting GOP grooming or another kind. The other had an acquaintance talk about throwing Bernie
Sanders a "sheepdog bone" to keep him distracted until it's too late.


This reeks of a political operation, yet in the best light it was rogue people operating on multiple fronts.
Yet, Bernie is the best candidate for race-related issues, so that line of defense does not hold water.


This leads to the one woman's Reddit page (above) that says she supports Sarah Palin and any other woman.


===


Does this mean she is fighting for Hillary's campaign, with or without their knowledge?

Does this mean she is working for the conservatives to discredit Sanders, Clinton and the BLM movement?


===


It was odd that both the Clinton and O'Malley campaigns were silent about this disruption.

In any event the Hillary Clinton & O'Malley campaigns should make a statement denouncing these disruptions!


They both should disavow all knowledge of associations with this group.

110. Damn

I'm sure there have been others, but this here is a thread where DU shows its ass. There's a lot to say about this whole thing, but commenting on her "smugness" ain't how to do it. That smugness thread, quite unintentionally, lends truth to what was said at the rally yesterday. It doesn't mean she can't be smug, it means smug, in this thread, sounds a hell of a lot like uppity.

141. Smug does indeed sound a lot like code for uppity.

I saw several videos of the whole exchange and can only see much of it as verbal abuse. If it was my meeting and someone attacked the moderator in the same way I would have responded by having them escorted out of the meeting or closing the forum. There are genuinely constructive ways to gain a forum and so far as I can tell none of them were attempted. As it was they claimed to have the right to demand the floor immediately with no respect given to those attending. In other venues that might look like hijacking the meeting or something even more.

I cannot assume to know the background of the people who rushed the stage: whether they represent someone responsibly or only wanted to stage a guerrilla action of street theatre. I have a permit to conduct the event and with that come certain responsibilities for what takes place, including the public statements made by those who appear on that forum.

BLM has a right to a public voice and to address injustice where they see a need. They also have a responsibility to present the public with an honest case in a respectful way. Howling at liberals of any color does not engender respect. It didn't work in 1968 and it still won't.

As a disabled, liberal-minded, life long New Deal-Great Society Democrat I have done my time in this cause, every single time it mattered. BLM preaches to the choir from where I see it. Get in line is my first response. The boat only goes forwards if everyone paddles. You have a real case and I agree with you. But in Seattle you attacked the man with the longest legitimate demonstrated history of helping the cause you espouse as if he were part of the problem.

Your aim is off. You should be going after those who have reduced our access to real justice, lively-hood and the opportunity to vote to choose a different future. They are the source of the institutional problems you rightly attack.

135. swell. what a great person...

 

While working as the business manager for the Arizona Citizens for the Arts/Arizona Action for the Arts in 2007 and 2008, a job she includes in her online résumé, Oso issued checks to herself, made unauthorized withdrawals and made personal charges on the organization's credit card. The theft occurred over the course of a year and totaled about $11,000, court records show.

Oso had walked off the job in May 2008 without explanation "after being counseled about absences and performance-related issues," records state. She was fired after she failed to show up for work for three days, and the embezzlement was apparently discovered soon afterward.

Twenty-seven at the time, Oso confessed to court officials that she used the money to pay rent, make car payments, and "stabilize her financial situation."

Brenda Sperduti, the organization's former executive director, told officials that the arts group, which depends on donations for its survival, "had to win back the trust of donors after this." But Sperduti also asked for leniency for Oso

And she certainly doesn't seem to be motivated by BLM's issues, though she's perfectly happy to use it for her own slimy political attack.

But this looks to me like drawing an arbitrary line in the sand and sticking to it, even when it ultimately hurts you. Bernie is the absolute best bet for AAs. I hate to see them hurt themselves and hope this phenomenon is confined to DU.

I've now seen that DU is a tiny world unto itself where factions grow and harden. I've read DU for years as a political junkie but never looked deeply into the message boards until recently. It would make a GREAT thesis subject for a sociology major, because it's a condensed microcosm of society.

Or maybe some evil genius (I'm sure they exist, think of Karl Rove, Frank Luntz, Newt Gingrich) has managed to deflect black anger from the real racists and turned it against the progressive movement. I hope AAs wake up, see what is happening, and then make it backfire against the cynical perps who seriously don't give a shit about them.

Thanks, BillZBubb.

163. Her Point was to get people talking and thinking about Racial Injustice in the System

And to keep it as the main topic of conversation. This is a major problem and it continues because not enough people stay engaged for long enough anymore to bring about change.

You may not like her methods but tough. Protesting wasn't never suppose to be a comfortable thing.
You want comfort sip wine on the 19th whole and ignore the problems.

Now people are going into her fb account and analyzing her every post hoping to find something to say AH HA now we got her she is a Rightwing Plant.

You will do anything not to deal with her charge of the existence of left wing racist Supremacist.

but I think she is correct I believe that is a real thing. and Left Wing Racist Supremacist is when you remind silent and blind to the plight of minorities in the country while at the same time believing you are not racist because you don't swing the confederate flag, or harbor a desire to call people the N'word.

But if what she did makes you uncomfortable maybe it's because she challenged the one thing you have used to your greatest advantage. Your Silence.

Your reading of history leaves something to be desired. For more than 100 years people of many colors have fought this fight and yet it is still not settled. That is not good enough. Not for you, nor your brothers and sisters, nor your parents, nor your grand parents, nor any of mine either. We ALL still need a culture and a society which respects every one of us rather than systematically and relentlessly murdering our bodies, our minds and our souls.

Shouting down one voice recognized thus far as actually addressing your concerns substantially and historically will not persuade anyone that you have reason to be listened to.

You have a real cause. So do I. If I silence your speech in order to get mine heard have I actually helped either of us? Have I made people listen to how important, how desperate, how immanent that threat to real lives is?

I can't tell you how many times in the last two years I have read several comments of otherwise liberal people all over the internet, saying things. "Why do we have to keep talking about this"?

I wish there had been Facebook and twitter during the times Blacks were protesting by sitting at lunch counters, and boycotting the bus system. I wonder what would people have said about them.

Meanwhile in the Week Sandy Bland was found dead 4 other black women were found dead in jail cells across the country. Two more unarmed people were shot last night.

They even killed a young white guy at a Hardees two shots from the side.

There is SILENCE on the the Left. There is uncaring on the Right.

Go ahead and play around with the archives. I've been here as long as you have. It just says I joined in December of 2003, but lurked shortly after DU launched.

Seemed pretty definitive to me...


If people want to say she's only interested in publicity, fine...If people want to say she's just overzealous and hurts her cause more than she helps (like many of our resident Bernie Backers), fine.

But spare me the "agent provocateur" bullshit until you have something more than a button worn in high school...Hillary Clinton of all people was a Goldwater girl at that age, iirc...

200. Ego Maniac Attention Whore

This woman seems to be an ego maniac and/or an attention whore. It seems she wanted a high position on the right and for some reason they did not give her that position. As a result to decided to join BLM in order to get the attention she wanted. It is possible that she wanted to shut down Bernie Sander in the hopes that people on the right would see her and be impressed.

Her past political affiliation might explain why she attacked a Bernie Sanders rally. She may have wanted to hurt the campaign of the man seen as to most progressive candidate.

260. I don't care who the woman is, we don't call women whores at DU.

 

I see your favorite group is the sports group... so maybe in 11 years of posting at DU, you haven't picked up on this. Here's to hoping you edit.

Since a jury let it stand (squeaking by 3-4, I'm glad admins can see who the jurors are), I've alerted admin.

On Mon Aug 10, 2015, 10:03 AM an alert was sent on the following post:

Ego Maniac Attention Whore
http://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=view_post&forum=1002&pid=7061494

REASON FOR ALERT

This post is disruptive, hurtful, rude, insensitive, over-the-top, or otherwise inappropriate.

ALERTER'S COMMENTS

Calling an African American lesbian a "whore" is disgusting. There is no place for such language on Democratic Underground.

You served on a randomly-selected Jury of DU members which reviewed this post. The review was completed at Mon Aug 10, 2015, 10:10 AM, and the Jury voted 3-4 to LEAVE IT.

Juror #1 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: No explanation given
Juror #2 voted to HIDE IT
Explanation: Throw around the WHORE word in hopes that Sanders supporters will be so mad at this protester that they will ignore their core principles about women and not notice the rude language. HIDE.
Juror #3 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: Context: "Attention whore" is a term applied to people regardless of gender. I suspect you know that.
Juror #4 voted to HIDE IT
Explanation: Hiding and alerting admin.
Juror #5 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: "Attention whore" is a common figure of speech, and seems to be a real possibility in this case.
Juror #6 voted to HIDE IT
Explanation: No explanation given
Juror #7 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: No explanation given

Thank you very much for participating in our Jury system, and we hope you will be able to participate again in the future.

She's on the OTHER side, but it's definitely NOT Bernie's side she's on.

AND she's so rabidly "any woman for President" that she was willing to support Palin for President.

Just whose side is there remaining on the "any woman for President" OTHER side that fits?

252. I've got a thought....(Worth the hide!!!)

Maybe when she was younger, she liked a candidate that she would NOT endorse today. Maybe, she's simply a young black woman frustrated with the notion that her movement should take a back seat, as we're about to approach an event that will shape our country for the next, four to eight years. And, she ain't that old, if IN HIGH SCHOOL, she had a Palin button. My kids certainly weren't sporting Palin buttons, but, oh well.

Perhaps, she's simply someone's young black daughter, stepping into the political arena and wanting her country and her country's politicians to "see" her and the frustrated group of young people she represents. Maybe the comment about the republicans should have picked her up, was more about, political parties are throwing away the young and disaffected. Maybe like Bravenak, she's saying..."Hey people, wake the hell up, or you're going to start bleeding a traditionally consistent group.

If there's a 50% chance, she's a plant, then there's a 50% chance she's not. She just decided to be politically active. I've got a question. What's the harm in Bernie Sanders and Hilary Clinton speaking TO people of color? If Hilary Clinton hasn't had her opportunity to be shouted down, perhaps it's because Hilary Clinton has kept a tight lid on who gets into her events.

Do you have a clue as to what this thread looks like to me? I'm a normal, black woman with normal black children. This young woman looks like she could be my daughter. Not some evil plant from Hilary or the republicans. She simply looks like someone's daughter finding her way into our American space and finding her political voice. Me personally, I can't stand hecklers. I didn't like it when Sturtz heckled Michelle Obama. But, on DU, I was told IT WAS TOTALLY APPROPRIATE. I asked, why didn't she heckle republicans. I was even given good reasons for that. I was told Frederick Douglas would be proud of Sturtz INSTEAD of Michelle Obama (yeah, I printed that post and passed it around so friends could read it too). Do, I wish she had found another way to make her point. YES! But, a damn thread designed to take this young woman down. What the hell? That's just damn creepy, a democratic board that has a greatest page item dedicated to tearing down a young, black woman. HAVE YOU ANY IDEA HOW THIS WOULD LOOK TO PEOPLE OF COLOR? DO YOU EVEN CARE?

Maybe DU should be trying to reach out TO HER. Instead of trying to trash her. Because, guess the hell what? Her life matters. When I see her (from my eyes as an older black woman), I see a young woman who represents the future. I see her as a future leader to be groomed. I see her as someone to sit down and talk TO.

When her Facebook friends circle back to DU? What will they think of us? Well, heck not me, because all I do is lurk. And, now that Bravenak is gone...I won't even be doing that anymore. I do not believe for one minute black lives matter to you. Black lives are expendable to you. That young, black, life was worth taking down "for the cause" to you. Otherwise, it CLEARLY simply DID NOT MATTER.

Her life matters. It matters to me.

To Marissa, if YOU EVER HAPPEN TO FIND THIS "HOSTILE TO BLACK FOLK" board. I wish you good fortune in life. I wish for you a country that will reach out to you. You matter!

To Bernie Sanders "real supporters", you have GOT to get a handle on this nonsense, before you alienate many (NOT ALL) in the black community. Disaffected voters don't HAVE to vote for the opposition. Crap like this suppresses the vote. You didn't listen to Bravenak, so I have no illusion that you'll listen to me.

(Worth the hide!!!)

Again, a WHOLE THREAD DEDICATED TO TEARING DOWN "ONE" young black woman. Really?????

I would have walked on by had she not posted that. That quote tells me that she can be bought. And you don't get to call liberals racists after admitting that you backed Sarah Palin, and that the GOP could have you as an operative if only they "Groomed you better"on the same OP and expect to be treated with kid gloves.

Supporting a GOP candidate, none of my business, playing race card while bragging that the GOP could have had you for the right price... ya get smacked down. It's called politics, and if she don't like it, then she knows how Bernie feels.

When I saw her...I didn't think Christian fundamentalist. Who does that? And as for bow down...well, I'm not wearing any pearls, so I've got nothing to clutch. I've never met a black Christian fundamentalist. I've met plenty of black Christians. We're a HISTORICALLY DEPENDABLE voting block for democrats. Besides, what did she do that gave you that impression? Confess to praying??? Never mind, I don't care.

I doubt SERIOUSLY she knows anything about Bernie Sanders paternal family. I doubt she knows anything about Hilary Clinton's paternal family, either. She's probably not a "fan" of either, yet. She wants to be heard. She wants to hear how they will help her. This is what most voters want to know.

I'm not supporting "sick shit". In order to do that, I would have to cosign to this thread. But, I do plan on defending this young, black woman. I think Bernie would, too.

This thread on the other hand...it's distasteful, and quite frankly, it's just damn creepy to stalk random Internet users Facebook pages. Now, that's some sick...well, whatever.

And she describes heself repeatedly as a radical Christian fundamentalist. There are many links on du to her own words. In addition, she states that white liberals are more racist and worse for poc than white cons. Even if Ms. Johnson doesn't know, their is never a good excuse to demand someone bow down. There is no excuse for shoving and screaming inches from someone's face. There is no excuse for refusing to shake his hand or calling him a white.supremacist.

What she and her co-activists did was hateful and designed to degrade Sanders. He's my Senator, and I'm sure I'm far more familiar with him than you. There is no way he'd defend or support her ugly behavior. He's not going to criticize her publicly, but Bernie simply doesn't support vile shit.

And yes you are defending sick, ugly behavior. It's shameful to see that here.

273. I know, right...

Expendable...

She didn't understand her place. I hope she never does. This girl is "now". Most days, I feel old. She's a young woman. This young group that is emerging, won't know that Bernie Sanders marched in the 60s. Hell, I wasn't even alive in the 60s. They know there are few opportunities now.

She doesn't know what happened to Bernie Sanders family in the past. I'm sure if someone told her, she would think it tragic. But, she knows what's happening to her family and her friends, now. Tamir Rice is now. These young people are the grandchildren of the 60s. A group is coming that will feel no natural allegiance to the democratic party. They will be ripe for the picking. They are young and open. Republicans have dependably turned them off. But, one day they may actually get a clue. I doubt it'll be in my lifetime, thankfully.

As each new group matures politically, they won't care about our yesterday. Yesterday won't keep them alive. Yesterday has no jobs. They'll want to know our plans for their future. My mother wonders what republicans will do with her medicare and social security. My sons are certain there WILL BE NO social security for them. They're entering the job market now and over the next several years. Talk about different perspectives.

Lest we forget, black people used to vote for republicans. It took years of neglect, racism, and more to give democratic politicians a dependable voting block with the sons and daughters of the 60's. But, as time marches on, we have to re-introduce ourselves to each new young group.

That this group thought this thread was not only reasonable, but right on point, speaks volumes.

And I'm seeing it in particular with my oldest nephew on my side of the family. He's so - aware at 22. He stays off of twitter and social networks - that has to do with his career and the laser intensity he had to place on his education in order to get his foot in the door. Yet he has an account where he just 'reads' and 'connects'. So here's this young man, working on Wall Street - beating the odds to get there (still overwhelmingly white in the Private Equity firms) yet he says, "It's not just about me."

Still - he votes his conscience (not his wallet). His end game is to create his own boutique firm in order to reach back into his community and provide those venture capital opportunities that so often black Americans are denied.

291. If this self-aggrandizing, bird-brained professional disruptor is "the future"

Then the future will be very bleak, indeed.

304. Good post, but I do feel she inclines more toward the GOP than not, and even if that s

not the case, I also think she should target her actvism better.

322. Agree. To me, the reaction seems way out of proportion.

This was obviously annoying for those who wanted to hear Sanders speak... and an event honoring the anniversaries of Social Security and Medicare/Medicaid (opposed by Republicans from the beginning, and still attacked by them, now) was (IMHO) not necessarily the most appropriate event to target. But geez... people running for president can face actual life threatening risks. I'm sure Sanders can handle some heckling. I think it's unfortunate this tiny contingent of anarchists (or whatever they are) was able to shut down the Sanders' speech, but that doesn't make them the devil incarnate... or necessarily Republican operatives. (But I repeat myself...) In the end, this can benefit Sanders if he takes the opportunity to improve his message and outreach. (And security.) I believe he will.

I also agree the personal piling on can be very alienating, even to those who disagree with the specific tactics used. Again, the reaction seems out of proportion. (For the sake of argument, if they are plants-- which I don't believe, but I could certainly be mistaken--the overreaction would be a good outcome for those who planted them.)

325. As a Native American we have the highest rate of youth...

...suicide than any other race. We also have the highest rates of sexual violence against our women and girls than any other race.
I understand Black Lives Matter and have supported the cause. However, we also know to respect our allies as we know they're validation of internalized oppression as a result of the colonization process has helped many of our people begin their healing process from intergenerational trauma.

I almost drove 80 miles to attend this rally; but thought twice after hearing Taylor Swift & a Mariners Game were also happening. I am glad I didn't as I would be more outrage than I already am! For these two disrespectful young women to choose to interrupt Senator Bernie Sanders' speech is like choosing to interrupt a Bobby Kennedy for speaking at a Civil Rights rally!
These two young women are disgusting and hateful and did it to Bernie on purpose, calling him and the audience white supremacist liberals? REALLY? How dare you defend them!

336. +1000

You made it worth opening this horrible thread again. The dehumanizing language used on this young Black woman has left me speechless.

341. LOL at this:

I was told Frederick Douglas would be proud of Sturtz INSTEAD of Michelle Obama (yeah, I printed that post and passed it around so friends could read it too).


I'm surprised they didn't use MLK yet again! It makes me cringe whenever I see
