The latest emails released by WikiLeaks include some from the personal computer of House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi. Reportedly, a hack from Guccifer 2.0 uncovered damaging revelations about the Democratic Party and what its operatives really think about Black Lives Matter behind closed doors.
"This was hacked into and taken off of the computer of Nancy Pelosi. This is off of her personal computer. Think of what they have," Glenn said Thursday on his radio program.
The subject of the memo, addressed to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC), was about Black Lives Matter and noted for internal use only. At the very top of the confidential memo was a warning in bold lettering: This document should not be emailed or handed to anyone outside of the building. Please only give campaign staff these best practices in meetings or over the phone.
Glenn read the contents of the memo on air:
Presidential candidates have struggled to respond to the tactics of Black Lives Matter movement. While there has been little engagement with House candidates, candidates and campaign staff should be prepared. This document should not be emailed or handed to anyone outside of the building. Please only give campaign staff these best practices in meetings over the phone.
The memo goes on to describe Black Lives Matter as a radical movement which seeks to end anti-black racism.
Tactics: Democrats are told that invites to BLM attendees should be limited. The aim you should ask for personal or small group meetings. Do not offer any support for concrete policy positions.
Tactics: Meet with local activists. If BLM -- if approached by a BLM activist, campaign staff should offer to meet with local activists. Invite BLM attendees should be limited. Aim for personal small group. Listen to their concerns. Do not offer any concrete policy positions.
The message: Do not say, "All lives matter," nor mention black-on-black crime. These are all viewed as red herring attacks. This response will garner additional media scrutiny and only anger the BLM activists. This is the worst response you can give.
Democrats are instructed to use the following talking point: A history of systematic racism continues to affront the daily lives of African-Americans.
"So Democrats are saying in internal memos that these guys are radical, not to really give them anything. You can meet with them and you can say these things, but they're radical, distance yourself from them and offer no solutions," Glenn said.
Does that sound like what Democrats, the party of oppressed black people, should be saying about a group that claims to be working for equal justice for black people? Shouldn't Democrats and Black Lives Matter be on the same page and have the same goals?
The memo made one thing very clear.
"You don't care. You speak the language that you need to speak, but you don't do anything about it," Glenn said. "Anybody with any sense knows how the Democrats actually feel about black people."
If Democrats cared about black people and not black votes, they would have put policies in place to solve problems facing the inner cities, which have been under Democratic rule for decades. Unemployment during The Great Depression was about 25 percent. Today, 85 percent of African-Americans under the age of 24 are unemployed, and its 45 to 85 percent for the entire black community.
"The artery in the black community is hemorrhaging," Glenn said. "If you really cared, wouldn't you make that the centerpiece of what you're doing?"
Clearly, Democrats either don't care or they're very foolish.
"Well, there's no punishment. There's no consequence," Co-host Stu Burguiere added.
"When you have a group of people that vote 95 percent one way --- and Burgess Owens laid this out the other day --- what good does it do for a Democrat to come up with a real solution to a problem, when their lack of solution results in them getting 95 percent of the vote? They are getting rewarded over and over and over again for what they've done so far. And so there's no reason to change for them," Stu said.
Arguably, on the other side of the aisle, one could understand why Republicans don't reach out more to the black community.
"Again, we're talking Washington speak, why bother going to these communities, trying to reach out, when every time they do, what they get is 5 percent of the vote, even though they're providing solutions that have worked across the country in every other city," Stu said.
But giving up is not the answer.
"This is why we've missed the golden opportunity here," Glenn said. "Because the community is on such fire right now, that if you actually do the right thing -- not the political thing, you actually do the right thing -- you can make inground now," Glenn said.
