Speaking about a Black Lives Matters’ interruption that occurred two days earlier at a Hillary Clinton event, Killer Mike said “I will not vote for anyone that told a black girl to shut up or that she was being rude(.)”
Here’s video of Killer Mike’s introduction:
Ashley Williams, a Black Lives Matter protester, crashed a private campaign event bearing a sign that read “we have to bring them to heel,” chop-quoting a statement Clinton made in 1996. “Will you apologize to black people for mass incarceration?” Williams asked.
Unlike Killer Mike’s claim, Clinton does not tell the protester “to shut up” or accuse her of “being rude(.)” Instead, she attempts to respond, but is frequently interrupted by Williams, leading Clinton to ask “Well, can I talk?” Shortly after, Williams’ interruptions and harassment got her escorted out of the private residence by Secret Service.
See that in Williams’ own video:
“We need to take these people on. They are often connected to big drug cartels. They are not just gangs of kids anymore. They are often the kinds of kids that are called ‘super-predators.’ No conscience, no empathy. We can talk about why they ended up that way, but first we have to bring them to heel.”
Here’s video of that 1996 address Clinton made at Keene State College in New Hampshire:
Just 24 hours later, Sanders’ claim to 31 percent of South Carolina voters dropped to 26, and the 11-percent undecided went to Clinton.
“I talked to Jane Elliot, and she said ‘Michael, a uterus doesn’t qualify you to be president of the United States.’”
Sanders later defended that comment. “What Mike said essentially is that ... people should not be voting for candidates based on their gender, but based on what they believe. I think that makes sense. […] I think the media is blowing this thing up.”
