New Low Of Political Correctness - Democratic Candidate Apologizes For This Statement...

Protestors and activists jumped on stage at the Netroots Nation conference this past Sunday and took the microphone from Democratic presidential candidate Martin O’Malley.  According to this recent Mediaite article, The protesters chanted out, “Black lives matter”.  To diffuse the situation, O’Malley told the audience that “Black lives matter, white lives matter, all lives matter”.

The statement that “all lives matter” drew ire from the crowd.  Host of the podcast This Week In Blackness, L Joy Williams confronted O’Malley about the all-inclusive statement.  “Do you understand the difference in responding in that conversation in that context with ‘all lives matter’ or ‘white lives matter’ when we’re specifically talking about black death that is not all-inclusive?”

In a sign of weakness, O’Malley backtracked on his statement that all lives matter and apologized.  “That was a mistake on my part and I meant no disrespect.  I did not mean to be insensitive in any way or communicate in any way 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”.

The “all lives matter” statement is an essential truth and could be the truest statement from the liberal candidates thus far in this election season.  It is a statement that in itself needs to apology.  However, the political correctness of this nation has gone so far beyond comprehension that saying that “all lives matter” could even be seen as remotely insulting.

Leaders need to have a backbone and not be afraid to say or stand for what they believe.  To backtrack on a simple statement like that should give anyone serious pause about his effectiveness as a leader if elected. 

On a side note, O’Malley is a strong supporter of abortion.  His statement of “all lives matter” may not be a statement that he actually believes in.

What do you think?  Should O’Malley have apologized?  Is it offensive to say “all lives matter?”  We would love to hear your thoughts!
