‘White lives’ don’t matter, dummy! O’Malley forced to beg forgiveness after ‘flub’ at liberal loonfest

Democrat presidential hopeful Martin O’Malley found himself in retreat mode, begging forgiveness for suggesting that every human life matters, not only the black ones.

He made the faux pas in Phoenix, Arizona Saturday at the 2015 Netroots Convention, an event that describes itself as “a giant family reunion for the left.”

The progressive powwow was hijacked by Black Lives Matter protesters who interrupted O’Malley and fellow Democrat nomination seeker Bernie Sanders chanting “black lives matter.”

O’Malley responded by saying “”This issue is so important. Black lives matter. White lives matter. All lives matter.”

The Democrat was promptly booed and shouted down for daring to suggest any lives other than black lives matter.

O’Malley walked his comments back later during an Internet show “This Week In Blackness.”

“I meant no disrespect,” he said. “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.”

Some Twitter users agreed with the protesters, while many found it hilarious that saying everyone’s life matters was a controversial statement.
