    Are Black lives worth more than white/red/etc.? WTF - Can't a candidate say the truth without a special interest group backing him down? Note the name of the show where he was forced to apologize "this week in blackness". The poor guy can't even say obvious truths without getting shame. This country is fu(ked.

    Phoenix (CNN)Democratic presidential candidate Martin O'Malley apologized on Saturday for saying "All lives matter" while discussing police violence against African-Americans with liberal demonstrators.

    Several dozen demonstrators interrupted the former Maryland governor while he was speaking here at the Netroots Nation conference, a gathering of liberal activists, demanding that he address criminal justice and police brutality. When they shouted, "Black lives matter!" a rallying cry of protests that broke out after several black Americans were killed at the hands of police in recent months, O'Malley responded: "Black lives matter. White lives matter. All lives matter."

    The demonstrators, who were mostly black, responded by booing him and shouting him down.

    Later that day, O'Malley apologized for using the phrase in that context if it was perceived that he was minimizing the importance of blacks killed by police.

    "I meant no disrespect," O'Malley said in an interview on This Week in Blackness, a digital show. "That was a mistake on my part and I meant no disrespect. I did not mean to be insensitive in any way or communicate that I did not understand the tremendous passion, commitment and feeling and depth of feeling that all of us should be attaching to this issue."

    Judith Butler, a philosopher at the University of California, Berkeley, recently explained why some find it offensive to respond to the "Black Lives Matter" movement with the "all lives matter."

    "When some people rejoin with 'All Lives Matter' they misunderstand the problem, but not because their message is untrue. It is true that all lives matter, but it is equally true that not all lives are understood to matter, which is precisely why it is most important to name the lives that have not mattered, and are struggling to matter in the way they deserve," Butler said in an interview with The New York Times. "If we jump too quickly to the universal formulation, 'all lives matter,' then we miss the fact that black people have not yet been included in the idea of 'all lives.'"

    O'Malley isn't the first Democrat to come under fire for the remark. Hillary Clinton was criticized in June for doing the same thing.

    Politicians on both sides say whatever it takes to make the crowd happy. Always have. No story here.

    The story is that the left has become so radical, so anti-American, that they boo when someone says "all lives matter." Politicians are forced to apologize for not being racist against whites.

    Sorry to burst your blissful cocoon of ignorance

    I'm sorry, did this not happen? Is this the fake story Robin? Should we not care that some limp-wristed douche allowed himself to be bullied into apologizing for saying that all lives matter? That's not a problem?

    We'll not talk about how radical the right wing has become. Both sides are fucking nuts.

    Politicians say what the crowd wants to hear. That's how they try to get votes. Of course he's gonna cave in.

    Any example I gave you, you would say was reasonable. I look at the wackiness on both sides and get disgusted.
