Hillary Clinton is facing the wrath of liberal social media users after failing to pander to “black lives matter” activists during a speech at a black church in Missouri on Tuesday.
Telling the crowd in Florissant, Mo., that “all lives matter” – instead of repeating the race-baiting phrase “black lives matter” – earned Clinton the ire of protesters and activists on Twitter who often blast the generic phrase as a “micro-aggression” against black activists.
Apparently, considering all lives to be precious is not nearly divisive enough for the leftist activists who make up the professional protestng wing of the Democrat base.
.@HillaryClinton‘s STL speech had some strong, important statements on race, overshadowed by the ill-fated use of “all lives matter.”

To say “All Lives Matter” in a black church less than a week after Charleston is, I have to say, pretty violent and despicable — [kie.ran] (@danblackroyd) June 23, 2015
If she didn’t get a “no” from me before, she sure does now. “@yoauntielikeit Hillary, in a Black church, said “All lives matter.” Fam…”

Some Twitter users said the liberal faux pas would cost her a chance at the Democrat nomination.
The revolution is now devouring its own children.
Hillary Clinton just said “All Lives Matter.” Girl BYE. If you can’t just say Black Lives Matter, then keep us out of your mouth altogether.
