HUCKABEE MISAPPROPRIATES MARTIN LUTHER KING TO BASH BLACK LIVES MATTER

THEN JANET MOCK
SHUTS  DOWN 
HUCKABEE 
WITH A QUICKNESS



Mock pointed out that Huckabee’s attempt to misrepresent King was a way “to silence the very people and ideas that he fought to protect and died to protect.”

Offering ‘all lives matter’ in response to the assertion that ‘black lives matter’ diminishes the black lives that have an continue to be lost, and you should know that by now,” Mock insisted.
“Because, yes, Martin Luther King Jr. was appalled by the notion that we are elevating some lives above others,” Mock said. “But you’re a little confused about the ‘we’ he was talking about.

“The message from BLM is that black people don’t have the power to stop the violence against them from agents of the state,” she pointed out. “It’s why they are appealing to people like you, people vying to represent the state."
