Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders learned his lesson well — black lives matter above all else.
During his appearance on CNN’s “State of the Union” Sunday, the Independent Vermont senator agreed with host Jake Tapper that “obviously it was an outrage” that a Texas deputy sheriff was executed in a Friday night ambush, but added that it’s “unacceptable in this country when unarmed black people get dragged out of cars or get shot.”
He added, ”That is happening too often.”
On Saturday, Harris County Sheriff announced the arrest of Shannon Miles, 30, for the execution-style murder of Darren Goforth, 47.
Investigators said that Miles approached behind Goforth, who was in uniform and pumping gas, and fired multiple rounds into the officer’s back. When Goforth fell, Miles fired additional rounds.
Here’s a video of Sanders’ interview, via CNN.
On August 8, a Sanders campaign appearance was completely taken over by screaming, incoherent Black Lives Matter activists. He was only able to deliver his opening sentence before the event was shut down.
